Bright Young Things Film Club season opened with Inaugural Event at Ballymore’s Embassy Gardens with Adult Life Skills

11 July 2016

Last Thursday, The Bright Young Things Film Club hosted the inaugural event in its summer film series at Ballymore’s Embassy Gardens.

Embassy Gardens is a new residential development at the heart of Nine Elms on the South Bank, wrapping around the new US Embassy. The development’s private cinema, The Maureen O’Hara, provided the ideal setting to host Adult Life Skills, the award-winning debut feature film written and directed by Rachel Tunnard.

Before the film began, guests were treated to a drinks reception hosted by FIOL Prosecco and enjoyed nibbles provided by Market Porter. The seats in the Maureen O’Hara cinema were lined with bottles of Fiji Water, miniature Green & Black’s Ice Cream tubs and sharing bags of Propercorn. As the credits rolled, writer and director Rachel Tunnard and producer Michael Berliner took to the stage for a live Q&A about this highly acclaimed new comedy.




Adult Life Skills follows actress Jodie Whittaker as 29 year-old Anna, living in her mum’s shed and doing her best to push everyone away in order to be alone with her memories and niche obsessions. The film won this year’s highly coveted Nora Ephron prize for this comedy at Tribeca Film Festival.

The film series continues at Embassy Gardens throughout July. Tickets are still available and can be booked free through Eventbrite.
