Welcome back to Storyhouse. We put customer safety at the top of everything we do, however at this time that means a little more than making sure you don’t get struck inadvertently by an actor! It now also means keeping 2 metres apart and wearing a face covering on the move inside the building. We will be asking all our customer to both enjoy themselves and to stick to some easy to follow guidelines. Find out how we’re keeping you safe here. 

Director: Kitty Green
Starring: Julia Garner, Owen Holland, Jon Orsini

A searing look at a day in the life of an assistant to a powerful executive.

As Jane (Julia Garner) follows her daily routine, she grows increasingly aware of the insidious abuse that permeates the workplace making her increasingly uncomfortable in her job and threatening her position.

This is a subtle yet brilliant portrayal of the workplace culture that thankfully the #MeToo movement has begun to dismantle. Julia Garner (Ozark) holds the film as she appears in every scene as the increasingly put-upon and troubled Jane.
