Electricity

Electricity

Film

When Lily O'Connor, a witty, sexy, searingly defiant Northerner with temporal lobe epilepsy and a traumatic past finds out that the brother she's long thought dead could still be alive, she risks her life to go in search of him. Like The Diving Bell And The Butterfly, Electricity is a journey through the real world and through the wildly hallucinatory, disturbing inner world of epilepsy. The film stars Agyness Deyn (Pusher) as Lily O'Connor with support from Lenora Crichlow (Being Human), Christian Cooke (Cemetery Junction), Paul Anderson (The Sweeney), Tom Georgeson (Notes on a Scandal) and Alice Lowe (Sightseers).

The Secret Diaries Of Miss Anne Lister

The Secret Diaries Of Miss Anne Lister

Film

Maxine Peake stars as Anne Lister in the biographical drama about a Yorkshire landowner, industrialist, traveller and diarist. She has been called Britain's first modern lesbian who, despite needing to keep her sexual orientation secret from society at large, in private defied the conventions of her times by living with her female lover Marianna (Anna Madeley). Lister kept a detailed account of her life in a fascinating and painfully honest journal. The script by Jane English drew from Lister's own diaries, written in code, and decoded many years after her death. The film went on to win many awards with outstanding performances from an amazing cast including Susan Lynch, Christine Bottomley, Gemma Jones and Dean Lennox Kelly.
