To celebrate the release of HAMPSTEAD, Luna Palace Cinemas is inviting you to an afternoon tea screening on Friday, August 18 at Cinema Paradiso.
Enjoy complimentary tea and coffee and light finger food * from 1pm ahead of the 1.30pm screening of this funny, life-affirming and quintissentially British film about how love can be found in the most unexpected places.
Inspired by a true story, HAMPSTEAD stars Diane Keaton as American widow Emily Walters who lives beside the picturesque Hampstead Heath. Despite her seemingly idyllic existence, she doesn’t want to admit that she’s drifting through life without much thought to her future, finance or relationships.
One day, Emily stumbles upon the reclusive Donald Horner (Brendan Gleeson), who has lived quietly in a shack on the Heath for seventeen years. But now his home and lifestyle are under threat from property developers who want to build luxury apartments on the land.
When Emily discovers that it’s her friend Fiona (Lesley Manville) who is leading a community initiative in support of the developers, she bravely steps up to take Donald’s side in the escalating battle, determined to defend the man who might just be the person to put the spring back in her step.
HAMPSTEAD is directed by Joel Hopkins (The Love Punch, Last Chance Harvey) and features a stellar British cast, which also includes James Norton, Simon Callow, Jason Watkins, Lesley Manville, Will Smith, Phil Davis and Hugh Skinner.
