The Ely branch of Amnesty International is screening Stuart A Life Backward, the film based on the award-winning book by Alexander Masters. It tells the story of Stuart Shorter, who was born in Cambridge and after a childhood of abuse and in care lived on the city's streets, and his unlikely friendship with academic student Alexander. Both poignant and funny, it challenges our conceptions of what it is to be homeless. It stars two of our finest actors - Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hardy - who offer powerful and moving performances.
We are able to show this film with kind permission of Neal Street Productions, which has donated its entire licensing fee to Emmaus.
The screening takes place on Saturday 16 November at The Lecture Theatre, Old Palace, Ely (opposite Ely Cathedral), CB7 4EW at 7:30pm.
Tickets cost £6.50 (no concessions - adults only).
