FILM | Daniel Day-Lewis Retrospective 2018
In light of Day-Lewis' remarkable performances that proved no role too difficult and no accent too obscure, The Projector will be screening a series of achingly memsmerising films by the 61-year-old who recently came back with one last curtain call in Phantom Thread. From Day-Lewis' earliest breakthrough in My Beautiful Laundrette to the three-time Oscar winner's illustrious masterpiece in My Left Foot, his ability to delve into any character will leave you in awe.
