We are very pleased to present this screening of 'Resistance' during its UK theatrical release.
Starring Michael Sheen & Andrea Riseborough and adapted by poet & author, Owen Sheers, from his award winning novel 'Resistance' takes us into another reality ....
What if World War II had gone another way? What if D-Day failed and the Nazis occupied Britain? And what if all of the men from one Welsh town vanished overnight, leaving the women behind to contend with a new way of life?
"Riseborough is heartbreaking as the pragmatic Sarah and Wlaschiha is curiously sympathetic as the battle-weary soldier - both are lost in the rubble of war. In the end, the film is about when and how the characters accept defeat. Some fight to the very last, and others just want it all to end. Luckily, you won't feel the same about the film. Resistance is a striking but bleak adaptation of Owen Sheers’ book, and a promising debut from director Amit Gupta." - The Cambridge Film Festival.
"A beautiful, elliptical war film with the haunting qualities of a ghost story. Riseborough is terrific and Gupta proves that he's a talent to watch." **** - Nev Pierce, Empire Magazine.
"The essence of Sheers’ novel seeps from the screen, every visual reference on cue and accompanied by a masterful score from Mark Bradshaw. Resistance doesn’t look, sound or feel like a directorial debut and Amit Guptas’ effort pays with this film. This is a story full of emotion, what if’s and stunning performances that will draw you in and leave you thankful D-Day worked. A triumph for all involved Resistance is a must watch and Amit Gupta is definitely someone to look out for in the coming years." - Greg Hayes, The Film Pilgrim.
