Part of the Night Moves Strand


Found at a Catholic hospital filthy and ferocious, feral teenager Darlin’ (Lauryn Canny) is whisked off to a care home run by The Bishop and his obedient nuns, where she is to be tamed into a ‘good girl’. However, Darlin’ holds a secret darker than the ‘sins’ she is threatened with, and she is not travelling alone. The Woman (Pollyanna McIntosh) who raised her, equally fierce and feral, is ever present and is determined to come for her no matter who tries to step in her way. [18]

The Woman and Darlin' will screen as a double bill on Tuesday 25 June with a joint ticket price of £14.00 (£11.00 concs). Please add tickets for both films to your basket, where discounts will be applied.
