Happy New Year, Colin Burstead

Screening plus live Q&A with director Ben Wheatley and producer Andy Starke

Poignantly funny and razor-sharp observation of English family dysfunction, Happy New Year, Colin Burstead from British director Ben Wheatley follows Colin (played by Neil Maskell) who rents a stately country home for his extended family’s New Year celebrations. 

Drama ensues when Colin's estranged brother David (Sam Riley) unexpectedly arrives after a five-year absence. The family getaway is then thrown into disarray and before you know it, a drunken, disastrous, awkward, cringe-worthy family gathering plays out on screen. The perfect film to prep you for upcoming festive family events!
