Opening Night Film
Come and join the glamour of Opening Night!. Your ticket includes a complimentary Champagne from the bar (or standard beer, wine or soft drink if you prefer).
Natalie Portman and Lily-Rose Depp star as two American sisters with mystical abilities travelling Europe in this gorgeously luscious pre-war drama directed by critics’ darling Rebecca Zlotowski (Grand Central, 2010).
Gifted with the power to connect with the spiritual world, the quiet and ethereal teenager Kate (Depp) performs a clairvoyant act onstage to bewildered audiences while her elder sister Laura (played by the radiant and majestic Portman) negotiates her bookings and fees behind the scenes. Broke and searching for their big break, the girls arrive in a dazzling, champagne-soaked Paris, where they meet the movie-producer André Korben (Emmanuel Salinger) who is enchanted by their spiritualism and decides he wants to shoot the sisters seances as part of an ambitious new film. However, the uncertainty of the sister’s relationship with each other and with Anton form a toxic combination.
Visually arresting in every sense, the cosmic lucidity and old-world glamour of the time is richly conveyed by cinematographer Georges Lechaptois, while the intense, terrifying and provocative performances of both girls will cast an unwitting audience ever deeper under.
