London Film Week presents:
Over the years, Anja (Andrea Braein Hovig) and Tomas (Stellan Skarsgard) have slowly grown apart, their creative careers taking them in different directions and leaving their relationship distant. Though surrounded by her children and family, when Anja receives a life-changing diagnosis her life with Tomas begins to fracture, exposing years of neglected love. Alone with her grief and her fears, Anja realises that she needs Tomas's full help and support, and the two embark on a challenging but hopeful journey in which they discover themselves and each other anew. Featuring an outstanding cast, 'Hope' is the stunning new film from acclaimed director Maria Sodahl.
When It Rains, It Pours
Mia is a would-be director, trying to navigate her personal and professional life in London. At the typically post-uni age of 27, her vanity of youthful ignorance begins to be viewed more as delayed adulthood than blissful rebellion. Everyone around seems to be moving on with their lives and becoming serious. The expectations of responsible career development and settling down are beginning to creep up, but Mia has never felt less grounded.
Her childlike spirit is beginning to feel isolated in her own grown body. She's working at a perfume boutique - a job she loathes, whilst overstaying her welcome in her friend Emma's spare bedroom. It's been two years since she's made anything remotely relevant, and her writing isn't going well.
Her life flips upside down when she meets Dorian, a young man who walks into the shop one day. After getting her heart broken, losing her job and place to stay, Mia suddenly finds herself with little to lose. Will she finally be able to finish her story?
We reveal new films and events every Monday evening, so you know what's coming up at Everyman as soon as we do.
