The Wild Pear Tree - Sunday 13th January 4:30pm

We have another classic Nuri Bilge Ceylan film for you this week. It will be no surprise to his fans to know it is as long as usual (and therefore an earlier start of 4:30pm), nor that it is as beautiful as ever. If there is a surprise it is that the usual thought-provoking dialogue contains much humour this time around:
‘I never thought I’d laugh this much during a Nuri Bilge Ceylan film...Ceylan delivers what might be his funniest, most politically poignant work yet. It also happens to be achingly personal’ - Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice.  

Remember the film starts at 4.30pm (it's 188 minutes long - back to usual time after this week).
