FUNNY COW (15) – 2017 UK 102 min - Tues 10th July 11.00 am - Babes in Arms screening - David Lean Cinema, Katherine St, Croydon CR9 1ET

Bringing a baby is not compulsory, but we cannot guarantee a quiet auditorium! Lights will not be fully dimmed, sound will be lower than usual and people may need to move around. When available, subtitles will be shown. The babes in arms may be up to one year old.

With a “funny bone for a back bone”, a survivor of domestic abuse finds strength through performing, and rises to stardom in the harsh environment of the Northern working men’s clubs.

Peake delivers a wonderful synergy of tragedy and comedy, with strong support from Alun Armstrong and decent cameos from John Bishop, Corinne Bailey Rae and Vic Reeves together with a beautiful score by Richard Hawley.

Despite its comedic billing, this is often a painful, angry film – but also an empowering British movie.
