Hull Truck Theatre is open all day, so head along early to enjoy a drink or some food from their cafe-bar. Doors to the screening room usually open around ten minutes before the performance starts at 7:00PM.
When aspiring model Jesse moves to Los Angeles, her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has.
Jessie (Elle Fanning) is an innocent underage teen who arrives in Los Angeles determined to become a star in the world of fashion modelling. Her ambitions are encouraged by a no-nonsense modelling agent (Christina Hendricks), but despite undoubtedly having what it takes, Jessie soon finds herself confronted by enemies at every turn – predatory makeup artists, sleazy photographers and hotel managers, and jealous rival models.
Nominated for the Palme d’Or and the Queer Palm at the Cannes Film Festival 2016. In English.
“An intoxicating fever dream anchored by a transformative lead turn from Elle Fanning.” Little White Lies
