Palace Cinema, Broadstairs

Winner of this year’s Cannes Palme d’Or.

Annoyingly perfect ‘It couple’ Carl and Yaya (Harris Dickinson – See How They Run, Souvenir Pt.II – and Charlbi Dean) are fashion models and influencers whose romantic relationship is increasingly soured by money. Offered free places on a luxury cruise, they find themselves sharing a superyacht with a Russian oligarch and some genteel arms dealers, while a deeply unhinged Marxist alcoholic seadog (Woody Harrelson – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, The Hunger Games, Natural Born Killers) captains an increasingly chaotic ship.

What first appears to be a journey into Instagram-hell quickly becomes the real deal, as this motley crew find themselves stranded on a desert island with no mod-cons, cat-fighting for survival.

As their social hierarchy is turned upside down, revealing the tawdry love triangle of power, money and beauty, the super-rich and entitled may make for easy targets in this contemporary Lord of the Flies

Friday 11 November to Thursday 17 November
