Our usher team have been voting and the ballots have been counted – Capernaum is this year’s top pick!

Winner of the Jury Award at Cannes, writer-director Nadine Labaki (Caramel) returns with a stunningly realised drama that charts the journey of children on the edges of society who find hope in spite of the challenges of their everyday lives. Featuring a host of astounding performances, this is a powerful and thought-provoking tale of hope.
