The Dig – 12A
May 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
A beautiful, moving film about the Sutton Hoo discovery by local archaeologist, Basil Brown after being employed by the landowner, Edith Pretty. This is a gently understated period drama that holds especial interest for those of us familiar with this great Suffolk story of immense discovery. Both Carey Mulligan and Ralph Fiennes give strong leading performances although the star of the film is the Suffolk landscape and people. Charlie Haylock from Sudbury, the dialect coach, made sure that for once Suffolk folk do not sound like West Country pirates with the actors being very accomplished with their specific Suffolk accents bringing touching realism and emotion to this stirring tale. The final scenes showing the amazing finds are guaranteed to bring a lump to your throats.
Doors open at 7pm. Bar open but no interval. Adults £5.50, 16s and under £3.00
