X + Y

A chance to see the 'brilliant 'Brit flick' nearly everyone missed






One of the best recent British films you’ve
never heard of comes to Clayhidon  on Friday 8 January.
 X+Y attracted enthusiastic reviews, but somehow vanished from cinema screens before anyone had seen it. You have a chance to view it in the first Clayhidon Film Night of 2016, at the Parish Hall.

The Telegraph gave this story of an autistic algebra whiz a rave review and called it “an emotional knockout”. The Mirror summed it up in a headline: “Brilliant Brit flick tackles autism and genius without Hollywood's mawkish sentimentality.”

The FT called it “a British film to savour, this impish, compassionate drama about gifted autism …” The cast is headed by Asa Butterfield, Rafe Spall, Sally Hawkins, Eddie Marsan and Jo Yang, none of them Hollywood A-listers yet, but their performances are superb.
