Oscar Composers: What Else Did They Write?/ Ratcatcher + Discussion

Set in a Glasgow tenement block in the 1970s, against a backdrop of rubbish accumulating during a binmen’s strike, the film follows twelve-year-old James Gillespie as tragedy causes him to withdraw from his family. Ratcatcher is a compelling coming of age drama with the exceptional ability to find beauty in the mundane.
