SHELL is ''Discover Tuesdays' at Picturehouse Cinemas on the 21st of May


The feature debut by Scott Graham will be playing at Picturehouse Cinemas nationwide on the 21st of May.

The film was recently released in March after premiering at the BFI London Film Festival in October where it was nominated for three awards (BEST BRITISH NEWCOMER for Scott Graham and Chloe Pirrie and THE SUTHERLAND AWARD for Best First Feature).  

SHELL stars BAFTA nominated actor Joseph Mawle (Bird Song, Game of Thrones) and newcomer Chloe Pirrie (Black Mirror), marking the arrival of Scottish writer-director Scott Graham as a distinctive new voice in British Cinema.

Shell is a 17-year-old girl who lives and works at a petrol station in the desolate Scottish Highlands. Apart from the occasional customers who call by for fuel, and a few regulars who acknowledge and catch up with her, Shell’s only company is her reserved and softly spoken father Pete (Joseph Mawle), to whom she is devoted. A young girl trying to find her place in the world, she is on the cusp of womanhood, struggling to re-imagine her role within her own family and life in general. Pete, meanwhile, is damaged goods. He still keenly feels the absence of his wife, who ran away when Shell was four, while his connection with his daughter is both difficult and disturbing. 

Beautifully photographed, SHELL is an involving story with quiet, emotionally charged performances from leads Chloe Pirrie and Joseph Mawle - a deeply affecting film that stays with you long after viewing.

If you missed the film on its release or want to see it again this a great occasion to catch in on the big screen before its DVD release the 15th of July
