“A forgotten, inspiring gem” – Wes Anderson (Moonrise Kingdom, The French Despatch)
Filmed in and around Hammersmith and re-teaming Oliver!’s Mark Lester and Jack Wild, Melody is a delightful comedy-drama evoking childhood friendship, condescending adults and the innocence of first-love. When shy schoolboy Daniel falls for Melody, his trouble-making friend Ornshaw resents being neglected, little knowing he’ll play a part as a rebellion unfolds.
With classic music by the Bee Gees and a debut screenplay from Alan Parker, Melody went on to become one of the biggest films of all time in Japan and a cult classic.
Following this rare screening, we are delighted to welcome the film’s director Waris Hussein for a Q&A.
Contains mild language, a single use of a derogatory term and scenes of smoking and dangerous behaviour featuring minors.
