Thanks to the good people at Kinopolis we have a pair of tickets to give away for In the Name on Friday, 8th November at 18.30, which is screening as part of IFI & Kinopolis: 8th Polish Film Festival (5 – 9 November)
Małgorzata Szumowska’s In the Name tells of Father Adam (Andrzej Chyra), a priest in a rural community. Working in a centre for young men and teenage boys with reform school backgrounds introduces him to Lukasz (Mateusz Kosciukiewicz). Troubled by and struggling with his attraction to the youth, Adam seeks comfort in alcohol. When a new arrival spreads rumours about Adam’s sexuality, disaster seems inevitable; however, rather than focusing on sexuality or paedophile priests, the film is instead a sensitive meditation on the universal need for love.
To win yourself a pair of tickets, simply answer the following question:
Which 2011 film did Małgorzata Szumowska direct starring Juliette Binoche?
