The Hit (dir. Stephen Frears, 1983).

Join us at the BFI for this intriguing 1983 British film directed by Stephen Frears - a thriller with a great cast: John Hurt, Tim Roth, Laura del Sol, Terence Stamp.   

"Blending taut suspense and sleek action scenes with moments of psychological and philosophical resonance, this film centres on the fraught encounter between two hitmen (Hurt and Roth) and the police informant (Stamp) they’ve been hired to capture and escort from his hideaway in Spain to Paris. But after a decade of reading and relaxing, he’s strangely none too fazed by the prospect of execution... Frears’ unfussy direction makes the most of Peter Prince’s deft script, and the performances are pitch-perfect." - BFI.

We'll meet by the Box Office by 6.00 for a 6.10 start.  In case of difficulty, my mobile is[masked] 9995.


Advance booking is strongly recommended, via the BFI website:

    Excellent performances from Terence Stamp & John Hurt traversing a dusty, isolated Spanish landscape. As ever, good discussion afterwards with quality company.

      Hi Abhinav - no worries, you only just missed midnight! If you would like to pay the £3.30 online today, that's fine. Thanks very much - and look forward to seeing you later on! Do call or text on my number (given above) if you have any problem finding us. All best, Sarah

    Thanks for the welcome. Sorry if this seems a silly question but does everyone buy their ticket in advance?

      Not silly at all! Yes, we recommend that, as screenings sometimes sell out. We don't generally arrange to sit together, but afterwards we meet up near the exit and go for a drink and a chat in the BFI or the RFH next door.

    This is my first film with this group, but if it's anything like Sexy Beast, or The Business, then I think I'll enjoy it.

      High standards indeed! Here's hoping. I've never seen it before either. Welcome to the meetup group - look forward to meeting you there! Do call or text if you can't find us (my number's above). Sarah
