SECOND COMING screens at Deptford Cinema (10 JUN 14:30):
In SECOND COMING, Jackie (Nadine Marshall) is a middle-aged mum with a history of miscarriages whose family life is thrown into turmoil by the prospect of another child. For Jackie, her much-loved 11-year-old son, JJ, (Kai Francis Lewis) is a miracle in his own right. Yet the prospect of another pregnancy raises the spectre both of traumatic maternal loss and of marital estrangement from Mark (Idris Elba), with whom she has not been intimate for some time. Is Jackie’s silence on the subject of her conception a symptom of denial, deceit, derangement – or something altogether more mysterious?
“British cinema. Whenever you think it has lost its mojo, it re-flourishes that mojo in your face. Debbie Tucker Green’s SECOND COMING is a true original.” — NIGEL ANDREWS, FINANCIAL TIMES
