You Resemble Me15

On the outskirts of Paris, two young sisters are abruptly separated by the authorities and taken into foster care.

Cultural and intergenerational trauma erupt in this intimate story about family love, sisterhood, and the roots of radicalisation.

‘This inspired-by-true-life story of crumbling identity and radicalisation is a powerful cry from the heart.’

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!
