Relaxed Screening: Late Night (15)

Emma Thompson

Emma Thompson leads as a late-night talkshow host on the brink of losing her show, in this all-star comedy written by and starring Mindy Kaling.

Katherine Newbury (Thompson) is a fierce TV presenter who doesn't suffer fools (or anyone) lightly. Newbury is worried that her show is slipping away from her, when she decides to hire her first ever female staff writer, Molly Patel (Kaling).

Although the two women are separated by age and culture, they bond over their shared love of comedy and a hard-hitting punch line. With quick quips and snappy one-liners, Thompson clearly relishes the opportunity to co-lead in this socially astute and witty comedy.

Relaxed Screenings
Relaxed screenings are specially tailored for film fans who may be on the autistic spectrum, have Tourette Syndrome, anxiety, sensory difficulties or other learning disabilities.

The cinema environment is tailored to the needs of the audience by having the lights dimmed, though not off, and the volume levels a little lower than usual. Attendees are free to sit in whichever seat they like and can enter and exit the room at any time, with easy access for any wheelchair users. Attendees are free to make noise in these screenings. Staff are trained and ready to assist with any help the audience may need during these trips to the cinema at Barbican.
