An aspiring young writer secures a position tutoring the son of a revered author he deeply admires. In time, family secrets begin to emerge, turning what was intended as a noble endeavour into a saga of lust, jealousy, and betrayal. This atmospheric literary thriller features gripping performances by Oscar-nominated actors Richard E. Grant and Julie Delpy.
‘A movie that loves its actors and bounces buoyantly from scene to scene on the thrilling chemistry they provide.’
Kevin Maher, The Times
‘Grant is magnificent as a cruel, past-his-prime genius burdened by terrible guilt over an earlier family tragedy, and Delpy — well, can any actor express so much with a single, withering look?’
Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

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!
