The Falling at HOME Manchester, Manchester 16 March 2019 Tickets from £5.50 — Book now

Carol Morley writes and directs this masterful and eagerly anticipated follow up to her acclaimed Dreams of a Life. A mesmerising psychological drama from one of the most exciting talents in contemporary British filmmaking, The Falling explores a mysterious fainting and twitching outbreak in 1969 at an all-girls school. At the centre of the epidemic are the intense and clever Lydia, and the admired but rebellious Abbie.

Within the volatile, eerie atmosphere of the school and her troubled home life, Lydia is driven to discover the truth behind the mystery whilst holding onto her fragile friendship with Abbie. As the fainting escalates, Lydia confronts the authority figures around her: her self-absorbed mother, the indomitable deputy head Miss Mantel, and the enigmatic headmistress Miss Alvaro. Eventually, Lydia’s actions force old secrets into the light as she finds truths that she never expected.
