‘Still Life’, a film directed by Uberto Pasolini and starring Eddie Marsan, is the next choice of screening for Halifax Film Society.

A gentle, poignant and quixotic tale of life, love - and the afterlife - the play had its premiere at the Venice Film Festival. Eddie Marsan plays John May, a council worker charged with finding the next of kin of those who have died alone.

When his department is downsized, John has to step up his efforts on his final case, taking him on a liberating journey that allows him to start living at last.

The Independent described the film as ‘a gently well-observed drama with a likeable performance from Eddie Marsan’.

‘Still Life’, which also stars Downton Abbey’s Joanne Froggatt will be shown at Halifax Playhouse on Sunday, January 31 at 7.30pm. Tel: 01422 355990.
