Fantastic news just in: Daniel Kokotajlo’s film Apostasy about a JW family facing the blood issue and - ahem - a daughter who apostatises - was released late last week in the United Kingdom. Even though it received limited release in its first weekend and is going to be in more cinemas this weekend, it has entered the Top 15 films at No. 12 - a magnificent result for a highly acclaimed film made on a shoe string.
Media are hailing the film as the best British movie in recent years, with superb performances by the three female leads. The actress who plays the JW mother is Siobhan Finnergan (who starred in Downton Abbey).
I’m seeing it tomorrow at Wellington’s Reading Cinema at noon. Might see you there! 😜
