The Childhood Of A Leader (12A)
Thu 01 Jan 1970 - Thu 01 Jan 1970
Hungary, France, 2015, 115 mins, dir. Brady Corbet
A prodigious ode to Michael Hanekes White Ribbon (2009), actor Brady Corbet turns his hand to directing with his compelling, dark feature debut.
Matched with a remarkable orchestral score, this dark coming of age drama explores the formative years of a dictator in the making. Set against the background of post World War I, Paris we meet a young American boy, Prescott, the son of a diplomat whose increasingly delinquent behaviour and exposure to his father political position molds his beliefs and bears witness to the birth of a terrifying ego.
Immensely atmospheric, unusual and unsettling The Childhood of a Leader powers its way to the big screen with ravishing cinematography and an international cast.
