The Levelling's star and Deptford Cinema patron, Ellie Kendrick (who plays Meera on HBO's hit show Game of Thrones), will join us for a Q&A after we screen this acclaimed debut drama from writer-director Hope Dickson Leach.

Somerset, October 2014. When Clover Catto (Ellie Kendrick) receives a call telling her that her younger brother Harry (Joe Blakemore) is dead, she must return to her family farm and face the man she hasn't spoken to in years: her father Aubrey (David Troughton). She is shocked to discover her home changed forever by the devastating floods that destroyed the area six months earlier, and Aubrey a tormented shadow of his former self. As she learns what has been going on in her long absence she and her father forge a new understanding, but can it withstand the troubles that they face on the ravaged farm as well as the truth of what drove Harry to take his own life?

We are thrilled that The Levelling's star and Deptford Cinema patron, Ellie Kendrick (HBO's hit show Game of Thrones, An Education, Misfits, Native, and The Diary of Anne Frank), will join us for a Q&A right after we screen the film.

"It's a magnetic performance from Kendrick, at once lost and angry, agonised and tender..." - Kate Muir, The Times.

"A superbly shot and piercingly acted realist tragedy..."- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
