László Nemes (Son of Saul) returns with an exquisitely framed and deliciously cryptic historical drama that foreshadows the horrors of war, screening here for one night only in 35mm.
1913, Írisz (Juli Jakab) has boarded a train to Budapest, she tells people she has a dream of working as a milliner in her late parents’ legendary hat making shop. However, as soon as she arrives it transpires that she has a different motive — her brother who worked there has gone missing, and she begins an investigative journey deep into the dark underbelly of Hungary’s turbulent society that is churning itself to the brink of the First World War.
Following on from his BAFTA and Oscar®-winning masterpiece Son of Saul, writer-director László Nemes returns with another exquisite piece of cinema that is as much about family bonds as it is about the breathtaking spectacle captured with his unique, signature style.
Sunset was shot on 35mm by cinematographer Mátyás Erdély who also worked on Son of Saul. Nemes is a great advocate for 35mm so we are pleased to be able to share the film on this beautiful format with our audience.
Screening on 35mm as part of our Obsession season, Rob Reiner’s Misery joins Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining and Brian DePalma’s Carrie as one of the most accomplished Stephen King adaptations of all time.
Rising stars Josh O’Connor (God’s Own Country) and Laia Costa (Victoria) sizzle in this refreshingly honest romantic drama.
