A heart-warming story from the Lebanon, nominated for best foreign film at the Oscars. Guest entry available - £7.50 at the door

Since its premiere at Cannes, this sweet drama has won prizes and golden opinions, plus a nomination for best foreign film at the Oscars. Implausibly perhaps, a boy, Zain, in jail, sues his parents for giving birth to him. But he’s really infuriated (he’s always angry) by the grotesque indignity and cruelty to which his parents are submitted as result of their poverty. A cry from the heart? More an angry shout!
This is a film from Lebanon with English sub-titles.
