Films4Tenby will be showing the highly acclaimed Promising Young Woman (2020, 113 mins, Cert 15) on 5th July at the DeValence with the doors opening at 6:30pm and the film starting at 7pm.

Carey Mulligan (Never Let Me Go, Drive, Shame, The Great Gatsby) gives perhaps the best performance of her career to date as Cassie Thomas, a 30 year old medical school dropout looking for justice following the rape and suicide of her best friend Nina Fisher.

Mulligan deservedly won 5 awards for her incredible performance.
