This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Toby MacDonald.
Alex Lawther is Amberson: a shy but imaginative teenager who finds himself falling head over heels for his French tutor's daughter, Agnes. Feeling too awkward to make a move, he instead helps the handsome and popular school hero pursue Agnes (think Catfish but through poetry) in this charming and clever boarding school comedy.
Lawther - critically acclaimed for his roles as the young Alan Turing in the multi-award winning The Imitation Game, and James in The End of the F***ing World - leads an impressive roster of talented young actors and rising stars.
