Bait (Members’ Choice)

October 27

A small independent film that went large. London money’s bought up a small Cornish port, there’s tension not only between locals and outsiders, but between brothers: one that wants to fish and one that doesn’t. Striking cinematography showcased by its digital format plus memorable performances, Bait will keep you gripped throughout. Named by critic Mark Kermode as the best film of the last decade (and holds the record for number of votes received in the WFC Members’ Choice vote).
