British Comedy Thriller The Legend of Barney Thomson (15)
Barney Thomson, awkward, diffident, Glasgow barber, lives a life of desperate mediocrity and his uninteresting life is about to go from 0 to 60 in five seconds, as he enters the grotesque and comically absurd world of the serial killer.
“This deliciously macabre comedy falls into the fine tradition of what might be called net-curtain grotesque. This is pulp with the seeds left in, and you’ll be picking them from between your teeth for weeks.” The Telegraph

'Sweetly Hilarious' Hiraeth
Desperate to leave, Bud wrestles with the knowledge that her departure sounds the death knell for the family farm. Leaving five generations of tradition behind her as she sets out alone into the big smoke... With live music and welsh cakes, award-winning Hiraeth explores the decline of Welsh tradition and identity through one woman’s struggle to escape and let go.
Hiraeth is a Welsh word with no direct translation. It’s a mixture of homesickness and an intense form of longing or nostalgia.
