76-78 North Street, LS2 7 Leeds
30th anniversary screening of a classic British film with a decidedly punk attitude. At just 16 years of age, Emily Lloyd delivered a sensational performance playing the brilliantly foul mouthed teenage wild-child Lynda in David Leland's 1987 film Wish You Were Here.

In the morally austere atmosphere of a 1950s English seaside town, Lynda and her younger sister are being raised by her reluctant father, but Lynda is growing into a rebellious and restless teen. She just can't resist swearing, she flirts with all the boys on the prom and she likes riding her bike through the crown green bowls game, which annoys the parochial townfolk.

Her father attempts to tackle her delinquency by getting her a job at a bus depot, but she quickly causes outrage there too, showing her knickers off to the bus conductors. Her defiant attitude and sexually precocious language also brings her to the attention of her dad's creepy friend Eric, played by Tom Bell. When their troublesome tryst has unexpected repercussions, the ever-tenacious Lynda has to learn how to get by on her own.

This pop-up screening is brought to you by Film Fringe, who orgainse monthly screenings in the cosy 24 seat cinema at The Reliance, a much loved bar and restaurant in Leeds.

The film will be followed by post-film chat over drinks.
