Cold War
(2018) [15] 1 hour 28 mins (Polish - subtitled)

Director: Pawel Pawlikowski
Cast: Joanna Kulig, Tomasz Kot, Borys Szyc

Beautifully shot in black and white, Cold War is the intimate and passionate love story of two people who meet in the ruins of post war Poland. They are from very different backgrounds, mismatched in many ways, but somehow destined to be together. Set in the shadow of the iron curtain in 1950’s Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris it is the tale of two star-crossed lovers separated by politics, twists of fate and their own character flaws. An impossible love story in impossible times.

“It left me speechless (5 stars)” (Mark Kermode – The Guardian)

Emma Thompson plays the part of an eminent High Court Judge in London presiding over ethically complex cases of family law with wisdom and compassion.  At a moment of personal crisis, when her marriage is falling apart, she is asked to rule on the case of Adam, a brilliant 17-year-old boy who is refusing a life-saving blood transfusion because of his religious beliefs.  She visits the boy in hospital and their meeting has a profound emotional effect on them both.
