Tideswell Cinema

This month’s film Tideswell Cinema is showing last year’s Academy Award winner in Best Foreign Language Film category, the Iranian film ‘The Salesman’. It is a drama about a young Iranian couple who are forced to move home, with devastating consequences. They are both rehearsing for a production of Arthur Miller’s ‘Death of a Salesman’ when an attack on the wife turns their peaceful life upside down.

Absorbing and thought-provoking, it is directed by Asghar Farhadi, with a superb performance by actor Shahab Hosseini. Our foreign language films are very popular, and this is a great opportunity to see a film from a part of the world in the news but largely unknown to most of us.

Guests are very welcome to come along for £4, and pre-screening meals can be booked at the George.
