A powerful portrait of small-town hypocrisy and young love, set in 1950s Britain. From the makers of In Bruges, The Riot Club and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
Adapted by Sadie Jones from her award-winning debut novel, this is a moving story of love, grief and alienation. Bold, cinematic and ambitious, The Outcast captivates from heartbreaking beginning to electrifying end.
The Outcast follows the plight of Lewis who is 10 years old when his mother dies, leaving him with his father, Gilbert whom he barely knows.
Gilbert goes on to remarry Alice, while Lewis relies on his friendship with neighbouring children Tamsin and Kit, however the effect of losing his mother soon begins to take its toll.
