Virgil Oldman is a solitary, cultured man whose reluctance to engage with others, especially women, is matched only by the dogged obsessiveness with which he practices his profession as a high-end antiques dealer.

It will be the beginning of a relationship that will change his life forever.
TESTAMENT OF YOUTH
A powerful story of love, war and remembrance, based on the First World War memoir by Vera Brittain, which has become the classic testimony of that war from a woman’s point of view.

Set at the end of the 19th Century, 'Slow West' is an American western filtered through the eyes of European filmmaking.

He is quickly confronted by the dangers of the frontier and so teams up with a mysterious traveller named Silas (Michael Fassbender), who agrees to protect him for cash. Jay's journey is fraught with danger, double-crossing and violence as he comes to realise that America is not easy on the innocent.

What follows is an uplifting story of renaissance, friendship and romance over a long, dream-like summer.
