Punch Drunk Love

Sunday 5th October 5:30 PM


Following Boogie Nights and Magnolia, here is Anderson's latest and most successful film, which has drawn praise right across the critical spectrum. Not the maverick Adam Sandler's typical role by a long chalk, we're given a crazy take on romantic comedy as Barry (Sandler) leads us through adventures of obsession, isolation and ultimately love, when he encounters the mysterious, sweet-faced stranger Lena (Emily Watson) who enhances and complicates his existence. The darkness, anger, mystery, challenge and hilarity evoked by Anderson's hero offer an experience we felt you should not miss.
