True Things15

Directed by Harry Wootliff | UK | 2021 | 1h 42m | Starring Ruth Wilson, Tom Burke, Hayley Squires, Elizabeth Rider

Unfulfilled by her job working in an office and deflated by the disappointments of dating, a young woman feels as if she is sleepwalking through life. Then one day, a cocky and complicated stranger enters her world and awakens her desire for change. Adapted from Deborah Kay Davies’s acclaimed novel, Harry Wootliff’s assured second feature deftly explores the line between infatuation and obsession.


‘With great physical poise and precision, Wilson engages the audience on a visceral level, her deceptively low-key performance taking us deep inside her character’s dreams, desires and insecurities.’
Mark Kermode, The Observer

‘Another strong addition to the growing sub-genre of stories about people whose lives go to hell when they get involved with Tom Burke.’
David Ehrlich, IndieWire

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!
