I was waiting for the full programme to be unleashed as I had a feeling The Childhood of a Leader would be screening and I’m not disappointed.  Lucky Swedes.  The film is one of 8 nominated in the The Ingmar Bergman International Debut Award section and will screen on 1, 2 and 3 February 2016.  Fingers crossed Brady Corbet walks away with yet another award.  Tickets are available from 16 January 2016 and I will update post with links as soon as I can.

“The 27-year-old actor Brady Corbet (Funny Games, Melancholia, Clouds of Sils Maria) makes his directorial debut with a punky combo of a dark historical drama mixed with a psychological thriller inspired by a Sartre novella. At heart is a family in decay, in a Europe on fire. The consequences of the Treaty of Versailles, discussed essentially in the family home, will shape the son — a combination of angel and evil, outstandingly played by Tom Sweet. Bérénice Bejo, Liam Cunningham and Robert Pattinson (in a smaller role) also give strong performances in these beautiful 35-mm fireworks with potent music by Scott from the Walker Brothers. Corbet won the Orizzonti Award for Best Director in Venice and the film won the festival’s debut award.”
