Hey guys! Anyone up for this? Meet in the Bar at The Dancehouse around 7.45?

Grimm Up North, in collaboration with Signature Entertainment present the UK premiere of James Franco’s contraversial adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s extreme, perverse and horrifying Child of God. This is the only screening of the film in the entire of the United Kingdom.

Synopsis: A harrowing and disturbing tale following Lester Ballard – a dispossessed, violent necrophiliac killer who’s life is a disastrous attempt to exist outside the social order as he falls deeper into crime and degradation.



The Guardian – “Jaw-Dropping”
ScreenS – “Franco’s powerful adaptation, directed with discipline and intelligence, captures McCarthy’s mordant darkness.”
Slant - “…a serious and unflinching adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s novel about a loner pushed to the extreme edges of society.”

DOORS – 19.30, Event starts at 20.00

Date: 9th April

Venue: The Dancehouse, Manchester.

    I've booked this with a couple of friends so we'll definitely be there. Seeing as it looks like no one's actually arranging a meeting point /time or whatever, if you spot me, feel free to say hello!
