Cinema 1 / Cinema 2 / Cinema 3
The Lunchbox director Ritesh Batra makes his English language debut with this moving adaptation of Julian Barnes’ Booker Prize-winning novel.

Tony Webster (Jim Broadbent) leads a reclusive and quiet existence until long buried secrets from his past force him to face harsh realities of his younger self, the truth about his first love (Charlotte Rampling) and the devastating consequences of decisions made a lifetime ago.

With characteristically standout performances from Jim Broadbent and Charlotte Rampling, this is an absorbing and reflective tale of remorse and redemption.
