That They May Face The Rising Sun (15) – Bonington Cinema, Arnold

Fri 17 – Thu 23 May, Various Times £6.80pp £5.00pp on Tuesdays

Capturing a year in the life of a rural, lakeside community in late 1970s Ireland, That They May Face The Rising Sun is a sensitive and beautifully realised adaptation of the last novel by John McGahern. Joe (Barry Ward) and Kate (Anna Bederke) have returned from London to live and work in a small, close-knit community in rural Ireland, close to where Joe grew up. He’s a writer, she’s an artist who retains part ownership of a London gallery.

Now embedded in a remote lakeside setting, the drama of a year in their lives and those of their neighbours unfolds through the rituals of work, play and the passing seasons. A delicate, meditative exploration of ritual, community bonds, and the question of how best to live.

As their pasts and presents collide, and tensions run high, Tashi must ask herself, what will it cost to win.
