Celebrating bringing films to Stafford for over 70 years
The Gatehouse Theatre is open and is welcoming its customers back...
Mindful of guidance from Public Health England, we are pleased to be able to continue our Autumn 2021/22 season of 12 films in the Gatehouse Theatre.
We really appreciate the support you all give the Film Theatre, and thank you for your understanding during our period of closure. We will endevour to create as safe and comfortable an environment as we can.
in the Gatehouse Theatre, Eastgate Street, Stafford, is:
Director: Sarah Gavron
Running Time : 93 mins
Given the events of the last year, we have consciously aimed to provide a season with several uplifting films, including this excellent opening movie.
An uplifting coming of age film telling the story of Rocks, an East London teenager left to care for herself and her young brother after their mother walks out. Directed by Sarah Gavron and capturing Tower Hamlets in vivid summer colours, the performance of this largely non-professional local cast is raw and honest, exploring the themes of teenage resilience, and female friendship. Bukky Bakray received a BAFTA rising star for her portrayal of Rocks, combining heart-breaking naivety with street smart confidence and joy. “This film is such a rush of vitality. It rocks” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian “The most authentic film about British teens in years”. Clarisse Loughry, Independent
