Brit actor stars in French drama at Coliseum

A FRENCH martial art drama starring British actor Kirsten Scott Thomas is next up at Whitby Coliseum cinema.

In the film Leaving, Thomas plays Suzanne, an English-born woman married to a socially well-connected doctor in the south of France.

Their children having almost grown up, Suzanne wants to train as a physiotherapist, a plan to which her husband has assented with testy ill grace.

Suzanne’s consciousness of how disagreeable he is being about this, and how much he appears to resent the new separateness in her identity, coincides with a spark of new romance in her life.

Leaving shows at the Coliseum, Victoria Place, on Thursday (19 Jan) at 7.45pm.

Admission £5. Everyone welcome.
