NEDS (UK film) free screening

We're at capacity now with RSVPs.  Please join the waitlist - and you are free to show up at the venue - once the RSVPs are seated, we'll seat the waitlist.  You can also watch it on demand.

Join Subtitles & Subtleties on Friday for a free preview screening of NEDS, courtesy of Tribeca Film. This will be a private screening and seating is limited, so RSVP ASAP.

We'll meet/greet from 7:30pm, and start the film @8pm. Afterward, we'll chat at a nearby cafe.

NEDS
Directed by the acclaimed actor/director Peter Mullan (MY NAME IS JOE, THE MAGDALENE SISTERS) NEDS, so called Non-Educated Delinquents, takes place in the gritty, savage and often violent world of 1970’s Glasgow. On the brink of adolescence, young John McGill is a bright and sensitive boy, eager to learn and full of promise. But, the cards are stacked against him. Most of the adults in his life fail him in one way or another. His father is a drunken violent bully and his teachers – punishing John for the ‘sins’ of his older brother, Benny – are down on him from the start. With no one willing to give him the chance he desperately needs, John takes to the savage life of the streets with a vengeance. NEDS is not only a story of lost hope, it is story of survival by any means necessary.
