Mount Vic Flicks is taking a break from June 28 to July 20.
Sparks fly after Ali and Ava meet through their shared affection for Sofia, the child of Ali’s tenants whom Ava teaches. Ali finds comfort in Ava’s warmth and kindness while Ava finds Ali’s complexity and humour irresistible. As the pair begin to form a deep connection they have to find a way to keep their newfound passion from being overshadowed by the stresses and struggles of their separate lives and histories.
Enveloped in music, humour and emotion, Ali & Ava is a heartfelt contemporary love story written and directed by BAFTA-nominated Clio Barnard.
