Romantic drama written and directed by Sam Mendes. Empire of Light (2022) follows Hilary (Olivia Colman) and Stephen (Micheal Ward), as romance develops between them in a beautiful old cinema in an English seaside town in the early 1980s.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Norman: Film. It’s just static frames, with darkness in between. But there’s a little flaw in your optic nerve. So if I run the film at twenty-four frames per second, it creates an illusion of motion. An illusion of life. So you don’t see the darkness. Out there, they just see a beam of light. And nothing happens without light.
