About this event
Barry Jenkins’ follow-up to his magnificent, ground-breaking, Oscar Best Picture-winning Moonlight is this exquisite romantic drama based on James Baldwin’s novel of the same name. Tish (KiKi Layne) and Fonny (Stephan James) are lovers in ‘70s Manhattan when Fonny is falsely accused of a crime. As he awaits trial, Tish tries desperately to get him released while her mother (Golden Globe winner Regina King) must decide how far she will go to secure her daughter’s future. It’s a searing, lyrical, courageous film that contains and offers multitudes, documenting pain and love amid the emotional challenges experienced amid racial-prejudice in America.

“With his follow-up to best picture winner Moonlight, the writer-director brings James Baldwin’s 1974 novel to the screen with heart-breaking, visually audacious results”

Visiting Dartington Hall
Dartington is an old place with a new story.
The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.
This idea is as true today is it ever was.
