The film gets a special preview screening, ahead of its UK theatrical release, as part of this year’s Showroom Cinema Showcomotion Young People’s Film Festival, which runs from Friday, May 20 to Sunday, May 29.

It includes a mix of film shows, varying from new popular blockbusters like Rio to international hit Small World, acting, writing and even film classification workshops, plus talks by film-makers.
