A Human Rights Campaigner with many accolades Leslee has spoken at the UN and voted by the NY Times the Second Most Impactful woman 2015, after Hillary Clinton.

Baby Driver screening 7:30pm on Friday 1st December

Our December films get underway on Friday night with Baby Driver. 

Baby is a young and partially hearing impaired getaway driver who can make any wild move while in motion with the right track playing. It’s a critical talent he needs to survive his indentured servitude to the crime boss, Doc, who values his role in his meticulously planned robberies. However, just when Baby thinks he is finally free and clear to have his own life with his new girlfriend, Deborah, Doc coerces him back for another job. Now saddled with a crew of thugs too violently unstable to keep to Doc’s plans, Baby finds himself and everything he cares for in terrible danger. To survive and escape the coming maelstrom, it will take all of Baby’s skill, wits and daring, but even on the best track, can he make it when life is forcing him to face the music?
