Bong Joon-ho’s train-based sci-fi thriller has a great ensemble cast, including an almost-unrecognisable Swinton.


A ‘mild-mannered man in a suit’ was how Bong Joon-ho’s script originally described the bureaucrat quelling an uprising in this post-apocalyptic thriller set on a train. Swinton delighted in transforming the role into a sadistic monster, complete with dentures and furs. Snowpiercer was never released in UK cinemas, so don’t miss this rare chance to see it on the big screen.

Tickets (limited to two per booker) on sale to BFI Champions and Patrons Mon 17 Feb 11:30, to BFI Members Mon 17 Feb 12:30 and to the public from Tue 18 Feb 11:30.
