Gloucester cinema-goers will have the chance to see something a little more unusual when the Oscar-nominated Polish film In Darkness hits the big screen at the Guildhall on Saturday 26, Monday 28 and Wednesday 30 May 2012.
From the acclaimed director Agnieszka Holland, In Darkness is a drama based on a true story that follows a sewer worker and petty thief, Leopold, who lives in the Nazi-occupied Polish city of Lvov.
Leopold encounters a group of Jews trying to escape the horror of the Holocaust, and hides them for money in the labyrinth of the sewers he knows so well.
But viewers can expect to discover that what starts out as a straightforward and cynical business arrangement soon turns into something entirely unexpected, as the enterprise seeps deeper into his conscience.
The screenplay was written by Canadian David F. Shamoon and based upon the 1990 book In the Sewers of Lvov – an account penned by the only living survivor of the group, Robert Marshall.
What’s more, the film was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 84th Academy Awards, and bagged the Best Feature Film Award at the 2011 St. Louis International Film Festival – proving that this may just be worth a punt for SoGlos.com’s readers.
