“Olivia Colman shines in Sam Mendes’ darkening hymn to cinema” -The Guardian ★★★★
Nominated for 3 BAFTA awards.
Empire of Light is the new, moving drama from Academy Award-winning director and writer Sam Mendes about the power of human connection during turbulent times. Set in and around a faded old cinema in an English coastal town in the early 1980s, it follows Hilary (Olivia Colman), a cinema manager struggling with her mental health, and Stephen (Micheal Ward), a new employee who longs to escape this provincial town in which he faces daily adversity. Both Hilary and Stephen find a sense of belonging through their unlikely and tender relationship and come to experience the healing power of music, cinema, and community.
