The Film Center is proud to partner with National Theatre Live to present world-class performances filmed live on Britain’s most exciting stages.

About the film:

Bill Nighy (Love Actually, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman, The Dig) feature in David Hare’s Skylight, directed by Stephen Daldry, filmed live on-stage in London’s West End.

On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan) receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy), a successful and charismatic restaurateur whose wife has recently died.

As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires.
