The incredible tale about the fantastical evolution of Bella Baxter, a young woman brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter.

BAFTA winner – “Leading Actress” and many others.

From the celebrated director of The Lobster and The Favourite comes this equally quirky tale of a deformed scientist ( Willem Defoe), who plants a baby’s brain inside an adult’s head. Working with a fellow scientist (Ramy Youssef), they monitor her as she develops from child to stroppy teenager to a curious and sensual adult. It all goes awry when an utter cad lawyer (Mark Ruffalo) elopes with her to expand her horizons, whilst touring a steampunk version of Victorian Europe.

This “thrilling carnival of oddness” (The Guardian) has been nominated for 11 Oscars.

*HOH + BSL Meet and Greet available for the evening screening. (*HOH – Descriptive subtitles for those with hearing loss).
