Departure (2016) - DCQ
Tuesday May 16 7:30pm-10:00pm in London
From our ongoing series of LGBTQ cinema.

Beatrice (Juliet Stevenson, Bend It Like Beckham) and her son Elliot (Alex Lawther, The Imitation Game) arrive at their family holiday home in the French countryside in order to pack up and sell the house, a family separation looming unspoken in the background. In the woods next to the house, Elliot meets handsome bad boy Clément (Phénix Brossard) and begins to work through the dawning of his own sexuality and alienation from his mother, just as she figures out what it's like to walk alone for the first time.

★★★★★ "Departure is a masterpiece, visually and textually gorgeous." - Cinescapist TV

★★★★★ "An incredible directorial debut." - Front Row Reviews

★★★★ "Hormones are raging in this beautifully shot, quietly involving character study powered by an excellent turn from Lawther" - Empire
