Jessica Hynes is heading to Broadway Cinema to take part in a live Q&A for her directorial debut film: The Fight


After being named as one of the picks of the 2017 BFI London Film Festival by The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw, The Fight is being released in UK cinemas on Friday 15 March. A labour of love from writer/director Jessica Hynes (Spaced, Shaun of the Dead), the film will be screening at Broadway Cinema, where the BAFTA Award-winning actor will be present for a post screening Q&A on Tuesday 19 March. 

The Fight follows Tina Bell (Hynes), who lives in a quiet seaside town, where her life is anything but quiet – her mother is threatening to leave her father, her daughter is being bullied and she and her husband Mick (Shaun Parkes) are juggling full-time jobs and three children.  Determined to ditch the dysfunction and beat her inner demons, Tina puts on her fighting gloves, stepping into the boxing ring to sweat out her anxieties and punch up her self-worth. But does she have what it takes to get her family off the ropes and emerge victorious. 

As well as Hynes and Parkes (Small Island), The Fight also stars Anita Dobson (EastEnders), Christopher Fairbank (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Russell Brand.

The Fight is in cinemas from Friday 15 March. To book tickets for the screening + Q&A with Jessica Hynes on Tuesday 19 March, visit the Broadway Cinema website
