In partnership with JW3, we’re excited to launch Film Night In, a special fortnightly Tuesday night event featuring a film with exclusive access to the cast and crew. This week we have Love Is Thicker Than Water, a charming and quirky love story starring Henry Goodman, Juliet Stevenson and Johnny Flynn. The film comes with an introduction from Henry Goodman and a Q&A with co-directors Emily Harris and Ate de Jong, available only on Tuesday evening*.

“Here comes a joyful, funny, rich, rewarding and utterly compelling picture that reminds you what great cinema can do.” – Stephen Fry

This charming and quirky film starring Juliet Stevenson and Henry Goodman tackles afresh the perennial question: can love truly and decisively conquer cultural and social differences? Vida is a Londoner from a well-to-do Jewish family. Working class Arthur comes from a former mining town in Wales. Falling in love was easy, but can the young couple maintain their relationship under the pressure of their families and society at large?

Contains scenes of a sexual nature.

* Please wait until after the credits for a Q&A with co-directors Emily Harris and Ate de Jong recorded exclusively for Film Night In.
