Mothering Sunday15

Directed by Eva Husson | UK | 2021 | 1h 44m | Starring Olivia Colman, Colin Firth, Josh O’Connor, Odessa Young

On a warm spring day in 1924, housemaid Jane is given the day off by her employers so that they can celebrate the wedding engagement of Paul, a boy from the neighbouring manor. However, a secret affair threatens to ruin the day’s festivities. Based on the novella by Graham Swift, this sensual period romance features an impressive cast of British actors including Academy Award-winners Olivia Colman and Colin Firth.

Reviews

‘A moving drama that shifts back and forwards in time to paint a portrait of its characters’ lives…an intelligent, affecting British drama with a splash of French sensuality.’
★★★★
Anna Smith, Time Out

‘Birch inventively shuffles the cards of Swift’s source in a manner that, at its best, makes the film feel more like an emotional memory than an unfolding narrative.’
★★★★
Mark Kermode, The Observer

Plan your visit

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
