SKIPTON Film Club is proud to present for its latest screening Nida Manzoor’s exuberantly comic action drama ‘Polite Society’, showing at the Plaza on Sunday, February 4.

A club spokesperson said: "After storming the small screen with the hilarious and groundbreaking comedy ‘We Are Lady Parts’, director Manzoor has now taken her innovative vision to the next stage with her debut film which we think announces the advent of a fresh new voice in British Cinema.

‘Polite Society’ has been variously described as “a kick-ass celebration of sisterhood” and “the sequin-strewn Kung-Fu romp you never knew you needed”.

The film tells the story of a British Pakistani family, specifically two sisters: Lenya (Ritu Arya), about to be married, and Ria (Priya Kansara) who dreams of being the world’s greatest stuntwoman.

What follows is both fantastic and hilarious as Ria, assisted by her martial arts crew, sets out to ‘save’ her sister. Cue awkward encounters with potential in-laws alongside mind-boggling fight scenes.

The spokesperson added: "Once again Skipton Film Club is at the forefront in presenting exciting new cinematic talent. With her brilliant new film, Manzoor shows that British cinema is in safe hands."

The screening on February 4 is at 5.15pm. Members and non members welcome.
