One of the most delicious cinematic feasts you can devour this Halloween comes in the form of A Banquet, Ruth Paxton’s unnerving and ever-timely horror of body image and eating disorders. One of the most striking and assured feature debuts in some time, this sinister and compelling shocker will get under your skin and stay there long after the credits have rolled. Second Sight Films – ever the purveyors of the best cinema – have put together a smorgasbord of delights with another of their celebrated Limited Edition releases. Packed with fascinating special features and mouth-watering limited edition contents, A Banquet is a delectable must-own.

Synopsis

Widowed mother Holly is pushed to breaking point when her daughter Betsey claims she has experienced a profound enlightenment. She believes she has been chosen to serve a higher power and that a new dawn is coming. Refusing to eat, yet losing no weight, Betsey’s behaviour becomes increasingly erratic and her family are torn between love and fear.
