Oscar®-winning director Susanne Bier (In A Better World) returns in this ambitious film set in depression-era America. Based on Ron Rash's North Carolina-set novel about logging magnate George Pemberton (Bradley Cooper) and his ruthless, brilliant wife Serena (Jennifer Lawrence - a treat, playing her role with an evil eye Bette Davis might have envied), the perfect couple's master plans come unstuck when they discover she can't bear children and that George previously fathered a child out of wedlock. With a strong supporting cast of Brits (Toby Jones, Sean Harris and a deliciously villainous Rhys Ifans among them), this is an enjoyably traditional, extravagant melodrama of bitter jealousy, murder, and cold, unforgiving ambition.

Ticket prices: Screenings before 16:00: £5.50 full / £4.00 concessions. Screenings after 16:00: £8.00 full / £6.50 concessions.
