Event description

Based on Brian Selznick's critically acclaimed children’s novel. Ben (Oakes Fegley) and Rose (Millicent Simmonds) are deaf children from two different eras who secretly wish their lives were different. Ben longs for the father he has never known, while Rose dreams of a mysterious actress whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. One story, set in 1927, is made to resemble a sleek silent melodrama; the other, set in 1977, has a grittier look reminiscent of American films made around that time.

“Todd Haynes's glorious celebration of a boy's own and a girl's own adventure really does leave you wonderstruck”  The Times

Dir. Todd Haynes / USA / 2018 / 1hr 56min

Look out for up-coming companion Hippodrome screenings (12 and 14 May) of Alexander Mackendrick’s Mandy (1952) about six-year-old deaf and non-verbal girl and her mother battling a post-war English society that sees her as disabled.
