BFI London Film Festival premieres Pablo Larraín’s critically acclaimed The Club
Chilean film director Pablo Larraín has announced the release of his fifth feature film The Club (El Club). Although it’s not set to screen in UK and Irish cinemas until Easter Friday, 25th March 2016, the Berlin award-winning film will premiere at the BFI London Film Festival on the 8th and 9th October 2015.
Already in negotiations to direct the new “Scarface” movie, Larraín is rapidly working his way to becoming an international success and the name on everybody’s lips. Best known for Oscar-nominated “No” (2012) starring Gael García Bernal, which earned him great reviews. He’s opened his mind up to exploring oppressed liberties and deferred blame.
The Club succeeded in winning the 2015 Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize at the Berlin International Film Festival, and now it’s ready to take on the British Public.
Tim Beddows, Network Releasing’s managing director, proudly said: “Congratulations to Pablo Larraín on taking Berlin by storm with The Club.
“Network is thrilled to announce the official UK release date for the film and have its UK premiere at this year’s London Film Festival.”
Written by Guillermo Calderón, Pablo Larraín, Daniel Villalobos and starring Roberto Farías, Antonia Zegers and Alfredo Castro, The Club is a drama centred on four men who live together in a secluded house in a small, seaside town. Each of them has been sent to this place to purge sins from the past. They live according to a strict regime under the watchful eye of a female caretaker, when the fragile stability of their routine is disrupted by the arrival of a fifth man, a newly-disgraced companion bringing with him the past they thought they had left behind.

Thursday 8 October 18.15 – Cineworld Haymarket, Screen 1
Friday 9 October 14.45 – Vue West End Cinema, Screen 7
The Club (El Club) will be released in UK and Irish cinemas on 25 March 2016
