Doynton Big Screen

Doynton Big Screen showed its final film of the season on Saturday 24th February 2018 in the Village Hall - Andy Serkis's Breathe.  Nick, Francesca and the rest of the team are now taking a well-earned break, returning in autumn 2019.

Joy is a complicated emotion to capture on screen – particularly when your narrative deals with paralysis, imprisonment and a desire for death. Yet Andy Serkis’s directorial feature debut, about the life of pioneering polio survivor Robin Cavendish, is so full of laughter that you might easily forget its sombre subject matter. Part exuberant love story, part great escape adventure, this is an old-fashioned tale of triumph over adversity that refuses – like its protagonists – to succumb to confinement. It stars Andrew Garfied as Cavendish and Clare Foy as his wife, Tom Holland is her twin brother and Hugh Bonneville the inventor of the machine that lets him escape from his iron lung. This event will be in aid of SANDS - Stillbirth and Neonatal Deaths Charity
