Dance First (12A)
A sweeping account of the life of 20th century icon Samuel Beckett starring Gabriel Byrne as the mature playwright and Fionn O’Shea (Normal People) as the young Beckett.
Parisian bon vivant, WWII resistance fighter, Nobel Prize-winning playwright, philandering husband, and recluse, Samuel Beckett lived a life of many parts.
In this playful film, we see his life through his mistakes and fraught relationships with James Joyce (Aidan Gillen), his wife Suzanne (Sandrine Bonnaire), and his lover Barbara Bray (Maxine Peake).
Directed by James Marsh.
The screening on Monday 29 January at 7.30pm will be shown with subtitles (ST) for those with hearing loss.
