Jan 7, 22, Feb 4: Movie- THE ROAD DANCE

Based on the acclaimed novel by John MacKay, The Road Dance is adapted for the screen and directed by Richie Adams. Inspired by true events, this period drama centres on a young woman in a small community on the Isle of Lewis (off the coast of Scotland) in the years leading up to World War I.

Graeme Tuckett Stuff 4/5 Stars “The Road Dance is a sweeping epic of a type we don’t see much of any more. Despite the isolated and confined setting of the island – although we do travel to France with Murdo at times – this is still a film which absolutely fills the screen with startling land and seascapes at the merest provocation.”

For the beautiful Kirsty (Hermione Corfield), her love for Murdo and their shared dreams of America promise escape from the scrape of the land and a stifled destiny. But the Great War changes all when Murdo is conscripted. The night before the young men go off to battle, tragedy is set in motion as villagers swirl and sup at a “road dance.”

Kirsty herself faces the horrors of a sexual assault that leaves her pregnant—and with few options…
