This special offer is brought to you in partnership with our friends at Picturehouse Entertainment and the BFI and we thank them for this incredible support.
Herself is the new, critically acclaimed film from Phyllida Lloyd (Mamma Mia!, The Iron Lady). The film tells the story of Sandra, who escapes an abusive relationship and draws on a new community of friends and neighbours to help her – literally – build a new life. Featuring an outstanding cast including Clare Dunne, Harriet Walter, and Conleth Hill.
The film, which is sure to resonate with us all during these more isolated times, is available exclusively to volunteer-led cinemas (community cinemas and film societies) to screen for just £50. Best of all, you can screen this film from the very first date it is available in commercial screens – 10 September, meaning you can take advantage of review buzz and publicity. The film premiered to excellent reviews and acclaim at Sundance Film Festival and the BFI London Film Festival last year.
We know many of you are beginning to re-open your screens, and we hope this film offers you a low-cost and supported way of boosting your Autumn programme.
This incredible offer is only available to 55 volunteer-led organisations on a first come first served basis, so get in touch with Picturehouse directly to book via Milly Maloco on email@example.com Terms and conditions apply.
We are very happy to present this offer to you – the film sets the perfect tone for bringing the community back together again. We hope you can take advantage of this wonderful offer and be part of this very special release.
HERSELF, 2020, PHYLLIDA LLOYD
Sandra (Clare Dunne), on the surface of it, is a young mum struggling to provide her two young daughters with a warm, safe, happy home to grow up in. Beneath the surface, Sandra has a steely determination to change their lives for the better and when it becomes clear that the local council won’t provide that home, she decides to build it herself from scratch. With very little income to speak of and no savings, Sandra must use all her ingenuity to make her ambitious dream a reality. At the same time, she must escape the grip of her possessive ex-husband and keep him away from her and her girls. The lionhearted Sandra draws together a community of friends to support her and lend a helping hand, and it is the kindness and generosity of these people and the love of her young daughters that help build her own strength and sense of self. With a cast that also includes Harriet Walter and Conleth Hill, Herself is the outstanding new film from Phyllida Lloyd, acclaimed director of ‘The Iron Lady’ and ‘Mamma Mia!’.
