This is a very special event.   Widows Walk is a film directed by Alexandra Boyd who will be with us for the screening.  She will introduce her film then answer questions from the audience after the film has been shown.   

Widows Walk is a ghost story set in Suffolk.    Eve's husband has been killed in Afghanistan.  She takes her young son to a remote beach cottage on the Suffolk coast to grieve.  But someone else is in the house grieving her loss from another war.  

Alexandra was brought up in Suffolk but then spent two decades in Los Angeles working as an actress (She was in Titanic).  She returned to the UK in 2006 and continued to act (she was a regular on Coronation Street).  She started to write for the big screen and then direct.  Widows Walk is her first feature film.   

The film is set in Bawdsey, very close to us on the Suffolk Coast.  It is beautifully shot.  Those of us familiar with that part of the coast will enjoy the way the film captures the strange wild beauty of the land and sea at that particular place.   It is also a closely observed, completely absorbing study of love and grief.   We really hope you will join us to enjoy this outstanding film and take the opportunity to ask Alexandra about the process of filmaking and about why Bawdsey is the location for her film.  

The film has already won an award for its cinematography and great reviews: 


"Set against a beautiful and haunting Suffolk landscape the film depicts an emotional and supernatural journey through connected lives, death and war."


"I am quite honestly overwhelmed with emotion.  The film took me on this beautiful, haunting journey and I was completely immersed to the very end.  I cannot stop thinking about that ending. It affected me so strongly."


"Widow’s Walk has immortalised the stunning Suffolk coast. It was breathtaking & artistically shot, gripping and completely captivating. I can’t wait to see it again and to visit the nearby film locations starting with Orford Lighthouse."
