From Academy Award®-winning director and writer Sam Mendes (Directing, American Beauty, 1999), Empire of Light is a moving drama about the power of human connection during turbulent times.
Set in and around a faded old cinema in an English coastal town in the early 1980s, it follows Hilary (Olivia Colman), a cinema manager struggling with her mental health, and Stephen (Micheal Ward), a new employee who longs to escape this provincial town in which he faces daily adversity. Both Hilary and Stephen find a sense of belonging through their unlikely and tender relationship, and come to experience the healing power of music, cinema, and community.
Empire of Light is released on DVD and Blu-ray 15th March 2023 from Walt Disney Home Entertainment.
