Last Resort

Sunday 21st October 5:30 PM


A young Russian woman arrives in Britain with her ten-year-old son. She mistakenly applies for political asylum and thus begins a desperate struggle for survival. Pawlikowski's graceful, economic style augments the perfect performances of Korzun and Considine. At last, a British film that has something powerfully pertinent to say about contemporary Britain.
