Better Things at Roxy Bar & Screen

To coincide with the DVD release of 'Better Things' Soda Pictures presents a free screening of the film.

In the midst of the recent Oscar glut of films many smaller films struggled for space in the cinemas alongside all the award-winners and Duane Hopkins' debut is perhaps one of the best that didn't reach the audiences it deserved.

This small but beautiful and striking film is a slice of social realism from the Cotswolds unlikely to be featured by the Tourist Board anytime soon with the bleak but empathetic depiction of three interweaving vignettes of young and old characters.

With the beautifully photographed landscapes and terrific sound design, the tone and style of the film have drawn comparisons with Lynne Ramsay and Bruno Dumont, but this is a great unique debut and Hopkins is definitely a talent to watch. Don't miss.
