Reinventing Marvin [Marvin ou la belle éducation]

director: Anne Fontaine
starring: Finnegan Oldfield, Grégory Gadebois, Vincent Macaigne

Reinventing Marvin

Sensitive Marvin is a quiet and artistic fifteen-year-old with an unwitting attraction to other boys, for which he is bullied both at school and within the confines of his impoverished home. When he discovers a love for theatre, its transformative power prompts Marvin to move to Paris in an effort to reinvent himself. Winner of the Queer Lion at the Venice International Film Festival, Reinventing Marvin is a powerful and uplifting story of a young man's quest, against all odds, to redefine his identity.


Why our films (usually) have to start promptly at 8.30pm

Although our films are scheduled to start at 8.30pm, on busier nights we've always been able to hold up the start until everyone is in and seated. With the arrival of digital projection, however, this has all changed. Most of the films we screen now arrive as high definition digital files that are coded to play at a specific time, over which the projectionist has no control. This means that the film has to start playing at 8.30pm or not at all. Thus to avoid potentially missing the start of the film, it's worth arriving in good time for the screening.

Please note that some longer films will be scheduled to start at 8pm.
