Night of British Films

On April 6th, starting at 23:30 at Mirazh Cinema on Chkalovskaya metro station, there will be an all night movie festival featuring all new British films! The opening night premiere of the long-awaited film "Trance", directed by Danny Boyle, and starring James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel and Rosario Dawson. "Trance" is a real psychedelic thriller, and is a picture puzzle in which some of the dramatic events are going on in the subconscious of the heroes.

The world premiere of "Trance" was held in London on 19 March 2013. The film was given a rating of 15 in the United Kingdom owing to strong bloody violence, gore, sex, nudity and strong language. Trance obtained an R certificate in the United States.The film in many respects does not match reality. Constant uncertainty of three main characters is what keeps people interested and on the edge of their seats during the whole movie.

The "Angel's Share" is from the famous British director Ken Loach ("The Wind That Shakes the Barley"), which received the Special Jury Prize at Cannes in 2012, in a tragicomic way that affects the theme of hidden talents that sleep in each of us, and shows that we have the ability to control them in our hands. Also, this film has the acting debut of Paul Brannigan and Jasmin Riggins.

"Four Lions", completes the "Night of New British Cinema" and is directed by Christopher Morris. The scandalous black comedy features Kayvan Novak and Nigel Lindsay. Nigel Lindsey was nominated for a British film award and a British Comedy Award as best comedy actor. And according to the British film critics the film entered the twenty best British films of the decade.
