The White King
Agyness Deyn, Lorenzo Allchurch, Fiona Shaw, Greta Scacchi, Jonathan Pryce / Fiction / English
In a dystopian future a young boy vows to find his imprisoned father.
The feature debut of Alex Helfrecht and Jörg Tittel (adapted from György Dragomán’s multiple award-winning novel) is an impressive futuristic tale, very much Eastern European in tone, with Agyness Deyn impressive as Hannah, who joins her son on his mission when the pair are labeled as traitors. Support performances from a cast including Jonathan Pryce, Fiona Shaw and Greta Scacchi add much to this deft and intriguing film. [12A]
18 June showing will be followed by a Q&A with Jonathan Pryce, Agyness Deyn, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Lorenzo Allchurch and the directors, Jörg Tittel and Alex Helfrecht.
