New Release ScreenTalks – Nov 2023

This November, Barbican Cinema presents a packed line-up of ScreenTalk Previews for upcoming new releases, including a discussion with Academy Award-winning actor-turned-writer/director Emerald Fennell following a special screening of Saltburn (Sat 4th Nov 8:25pm). This dark and delicious comedy thriller starring Barry Keoghan as a young Oxford University student who finds himself drawn into the world of a charming aristocrat, played by Jacob Elordi, is a beautifully wicked tale of privilege and desire set in the grandeur of an upper-class estate.

Also in November, Barbican Cinema presents three ScreenTalks supported by Campari, the official drinks sponsor for Barbican ScreenTalks which includes a complimentary Campari Spritz or Crodino non-alcoholic aperitivo with every ticket purchased.

Director Justine Triet will be in conversation with journalist Fionualla Halligan following a preview of Anatomy of a Fall (Thu 2 Nov, 7.45pm, Cinema 1), a crime thriller following the trial of a woman (Sandra Hüller) accused of murdering her husband in their remote chalet in the French Alps. Anatomy of a Fall was the winner of the Cannes 2023 Palme d’Or award.

Following a preview screening of The Eternal Daughter (Sun 19 Nov, 5.30pm, Cinema 1), writer/director Joanna Hogg and film critic Ben Nicholson will discuss Hogg’s atmospheric mystery drama, which is nominated for the Golden Lion in Venice 2023 and stars Tilda Swinton in dual roles as both a mother and her daughter.

Finally, the director of Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget (Tue 28 Nov, 6:15pm, Cinema 1) Sam Fell will appear in a ScreenTalk hosted by Barbican Cinema Curator Sonia Zadurian after this special preview screening.
