The End We Start From15

Directed by Mahalia Belo | UK | 2023 | 1h 41m | Starring Jodie Comer, Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Fry, Gina McKee, Mark Strong

As a pregnant woman anticipates the arrival of her new baby, catastrophic floods begin to submerge Britain. The London home of this soon-to-be family becomes uninhabitable, prompting them to seek refuge outside of the city. However, the disaster is just beginning. Adapted from Megan Hunter’s acclaimed 2017 dystopian novel, Mahalia Belo’s environmental sci-fi offers a poetic portrayal of family survival, starring BAFTA and Olivier Award-winning British actress Jodie Comer.

Reviews

‘Jodie Comer is tremendous…The Killing Eve star finally shakes that off as her defining role, thanks to a heroic performance in Mahalia Belo’s tense, stirring new film’
★★★★
Tim Robey, The Telegraph

‘Comer’s vulnerability and idealism are authentic as are her determination and a dash of real ruthlessness… She carries everything with unselfconscious strength and style.’
★★★★
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

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!
