Big Fish at HOME

Tom Grieve, Cinema Editor

Big Fish at HOME Manchester, Manchester 27 June 2018 Tickets from £5.50

A master of story-telling through his performances, Finney is perfectly cast as the older Edward Bloom, a teller of tall tales and an example of how life is lived best when lived to the full. Selected for the season by a group of HOME volunteers who felt that the melancholic tone to the film worked to celebrate Albert Finney the actor. Tim Burton’s stylishly off-beat drama is a late career triumph for Finney and a reminder of just how good he can be.
