Brockley Jack Film Club: A Prophet (16th May)

Brockley Jack Film Club is a local film club in Crofton Park which is run by a team of dedicated film-loving volunteers whose aim is to bring a range of cinematic experiences to the good people of South East London. They show a feature length film once a month, normally on a Monday and also like to showcase new talent by screening a short beforehand, sometimes with a Q&A. Their next screening is A Prophet on 16 May.

A Prophet Sentenced to six years in jail for attacking police officers, Malik is an illiterate young man who can read people. A young Frenchman of North African descent, he inhabits the border between two different peoples – the living and the dead. In a brutal prison where he has to kill or be killed, he makes the obvious choice and ends up surprising everyone. From the first scenes, it’s apparent why this film won 29 major awards around the world. Tahar Rahim was named Actor of the Year by London Critics only because there was no category for Actor of the Decade. “Blisteringly ­powerful… a modern classic from the very first frames… Audiard has created a long, involved, relentlessly brutal but gripping and thrilling picture.” ***** The Guardian
