Passing (12A) + Virtual ScreenTalk with Ruth Negga, Tessa Thompson and Rebecca Hall
On sale to Members Monday 29 November, 12noon
On general sale Tuesday 30 November, 12noon
In her directorial debut, Rebecca Hall adapts Nella Larsen's classic Harlem renaissance novel into a black and white melodrama starring Ruth Negga and Tessa Thompson.
It's 1920s Harlem and Irene Redfield (Thompson) is settled in her middle-class lifestyle; married to a successful doctor (Andre Holland) and a doting mother to two boys. But this idyllic setting is threatened by the re-appearance of Clare Kendry (Negga), a childhood friend who has chosen to lead her life passing as a White woman.
Larsen's masterful, tongue-in-cheek storytelling is elegantly transferred to screen in Hall's confident debut, tackling the intricacies of race, class and sexuality.
We are delighted to welcome actors Ruth Negga and Tessa Thompson, as well as director Rebecca Hall for a virtual ScreenTalk after the screening, hosted by Zing Tseng, presented in partnership with Netflix.
