Film night starts with I am the Song, a short film by Launceston’s Access Theatre group. This uses extracts from their ‘I am the Song’ project, developed in the summer of 2017 for the Causley centenary year — to celebrate his birth, his work and the town he loved. The film will be introduced by Sarah Pym.

The feature film is My Cousin Rachel (12A). A young Englishman (Sam Claflin) in the late 1800s seeks revenge against his beautiful cousin (Rachel Weisz), who he believes murdered his guardian. However, his feelings for her begin to change after he eventually falls for her unavoidable charms. This dark romantic film is based on the 1951 novel by Daphne du Maurier and is written and directed by Roger Michell. See: www.flic-launceston.co.uk
