Empire of Light – trailer – due in UK cinemas 13 January 

A drama about the power of human connection during turbulent times, set in an English coastal town in the early 1980’s.  And a romance develops in a beautiful old cinema.

Director – Sam Mendes

Writer – Sam Mendes

Stars – Olivia Colman – Colin Firth – Toby Jones

Sam Mendes makes his first solo outing as a writer as well as director.

Guardian: Empire of Light is a sweet, heartfelt, humane movie, which doesn’t shy away from the brutality and the racism that was happening in the streets outside the cinema: the Empire is showing Stir Crazy starring Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder, directed by Sidney Poitier – a message of diversity, if 1981 Britain cared to listen. It’s clearly a labour of love for Sam Mendes: love requited.
