|(National Theatre of Great Britain)|
I love these cinema screenings of live stage performances and those from the National Theatre of Great Britain are amongst the best I have seen.
'Skylight' is about an evening when an older man renews acquaintances with his young mistress some years after their relationship had concluded. His wife has died in the intervening period and she has moved on to pursue a career in teaching. Are these old friends enjoying a catchup, or former lovers seeking to revive a past passion?
The cut and thrust of David Hare's dialogue is delivered expertly by Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan in beautiful performances.
