Winter's Bone: BFI Southbank, Studio, 6.40pm and 8.50pm
The BFI Southbank is going to feature a lot in this daily recommendation of the best film being screened in London. The cinema is "the jewel in London’s repertory [cinema] crown" and serves the best booze for a start.
Winter's Bone was one of the best movies to come out of the States last year, a thriller set in the backwoods of the Ozark mountains and an uncomfortable look for its target art house audience into the lives of America's rural poor.
I went to see the movie last week in the Studio at BFI Southbank where the film completes its current run on Thursday. It's well worth catching if you haven't managed to so far but a word of advice - the Studio is by far the smallest screen at the Southbank and I recommend booking early as I got a late ticket and had to sit at the front. Definitely not the best seat in the house.
Here's the trailer for Winter's Bone.
