The Killing of Two Lovers (15)

Members' Screening

From director Robert Machoian comes this incredibly powerful and cinematic drama set against a picturesque mountainous backdrop in a remote American town.

David (Clayne Crawford) is living in his father's house and desperately trying to keep his family together whilst he and his wife, Nikki, take a break and try to work on their marriage. They've both agreed they can see other people. As David grapples with Nikki's new relationship and tries to navigate the difficulty of raising his children whilst he lives under a different roof to them, he finds it increasingly hard not to unravel. 

The cinematography and camerawork is stunning in this vista-filled film, where the remote landscape almost becomes a character in itself. You'll feel the emotional beats of this film right down to your core, through the heart-breaking performances, powerful dialogue and beautiful visual imagery.

From 17 May (and unless guidance changes) six people or two households of any size can visit together as a group. Until guidance changes, we’ve created socially-distanced seating clusters. Please only sit directly beside someone from your household or support bubble, and avoid moving seats when you arrive, so we can keep a safe distance between you and other groups.
