A DIRECTOR who persuaded his famous mum to appear in his first film will face an audience at The Dukes cinema this week.

Barnaby Southcombe, the eldest son of Charlotte Rampling, will answer questions from the audience after a screening of I, Anna on Thursday night, January 10.

Although I, Anna is the first film Barnaby has directed, he has an established career directing several series for television including Waterloo Road and Bad Girls.

Charlotte Rampling is a veteran of the big screen, having made her name in the 60s when she gained a reputation as a sex symbol.

In I, Anna, she plays a lonely divorcee, encouraged by her daughter to attend singles nights. She meets a jaded police detective, played by Gabriel Byrne, who becomes obsessed with her.

This moody noir thriller, unusually told from the point of view of the femme fatale, will be screened at the Lancaster cinema from January 8 to 10.

Tickets for the film, including the screening which features the director’s Q&A, are priced £5.50 (concessions £4.50). To book, call The Dukes box office on 01524 598500.
