That They May Face The Rising Sun

8:00 PM 18th May 2024 Newcastle Community Cinema

Newcastle Community Cinema presents Pat Collins' acclaimed new John McGahern adaptation, That They May Face The Rising (2023).

This poignant, rural meditation on life, love & friendship is based on the bestselling novel by John McGahern, and is a steadfast adaptation that finds beauty in the mundane, as is the case with the original text.

Joe & his wife Kate have quit the London life to return to the rolling Irish landscape of his childhood (filmed in stunning Connemara), and soon enough their quirky “London ways” & boho stylings are the talk of the local community, who flock to view these exotic new residents.

A simple, yet powerful tale of love on the move, of community, and of friendships through adversity. A quiet giant that stays with the soul.
