For Father's Day weekend we've decided on an alternative, not entirely celebratory program of films about fatherhood. Four great films across two days. We've decided to call our short season Binge: DADS. Join us as we immerse ourselves in the cinema of fathers...
"One of the best films in year" Shortlist
"A masterpiece" Rolling Stone
Lee Chandler is a brooding, irritable loner who works as a handyman for a Boston apartment block. One damp winter day he gets a call summoning him to his hometown, north of the city. His brother's heart has given out suddenly, and he's been named guardian to his 16-year-old nephew. As if losing his only sibling and doubts about raising a teenager weren't enough, his return to the past re-opens an unspeakable tragedy.
