SKIPTON Film club will present its latest screening, The Levelling, at 5.15pm this Sunday at the Plaza Cinema in Skipton.

“Following on from the successful screening earlier in the season of Lady Macbeth we feel that The Levelling provides another example of a new and vibrant voice in British cinema – writer director Hope Dickson Leach,” said Paul Valentine, Skipton Film Club member.

The Levelling is a dark and brooding tale set in rural Somerset.

The violent death of her brother draws trainee veterinarian Clover Catto (played by Game of Thrones’s Ellie Kendrick) back to her family farm, where she is reunited with her emotionally distant father (played by David Troughton).

The death of her brother is a death that is one of the great ‘levellings’ alluded to in the title.

The scene therefore is set for a narrative full of emotional and psychological conflict – which seems to arise not only from the characters but also the landscape itself.

Paul said: “Visually the film is stunning in suggesting menace coming from the rural setting – a credit to cinematographer Nanu Segal.

“The result is part family drama, part rural horror as the past comes home to roost for people caught up in a seemingly idyllic landscape.

“This is a unique film and one that Skipton Film Club is proud to screen – for the first time in Skipton.”
