My Favourite Film: Keiran Hodgson introduces Danton

Sunday, June 9, 2019 - 19:00

Holmfirth's own comedic actor introduces his favourite film - a film that Stanley Kubrick called the 'best historical drama ever made'.


The last weeks of one of the leaders of the French Revolution, George Danton, brilliantly played by Gerard Depardieu, and his battle with Robespierre in what is an overwhelming indictment of government oppression. The great Polish director created an Oscar winning film that still today, holds a mirror to the past and to the present.
