From Academy Award-winning director and writer Sam Mendes, Empire Of Light is a moving drama about the power of human connection during turbulent times.

Set in and around a faded old cinema in an English coastal town in the early 1980s, It follows Hilary (Olivia Colman) a cinema manager struggling with her mental health, and Stephen (Micheal Ward), a new employee who longs to escape this provincial town in which he faces daily adversity.


A gentle movie about friendship and relationships. Authentic. I cared about each of the characters.

Poignant movie about friendship, racism, mental health, a beautiful old cinema and more. Well acted and excellent cinematography. Great to go back in time and seeing old LPs being played, and NO cellphones! Loved it – once again ignore the so called professional critics!

Great movie. It starts slowly and builds up to a deep, engaging film. The acting and cinematography is superb!

I loved this movie. Real, authentic, moving, funny, sad, all of it. Do not be swayed by the bad reviews, it was well acted, beautifully cinematography and music.

Absolutely fabulous movie, this is a story about people, their frailty, kindness, strengths and weaknesses, brilliantly written and acted, stand out performances by Olivia Coleman and Michael Ward. Toby Jones and Tom Brooke’s relatively small parts also deserve a mention along with the location in an old cinema which is atmospherically brilliant especially in the opening scenes where we get to watch it come alive as the lights come on. Sam Mendes at his best.
