Millennium Point has announced an exclusive screening of acclaimed docudrama LOVE?, with live introduction from writer and actress Samantha Beckinsale, on 8 March.

Born out of lived experiences and the creative vision of Samantha, award-winning director and editor Jason Figgis, producer Simon W. Golding, and composer Scott Buckley, LOVE? is a feature-length docudrama depicting coercive control, which is one of the least recognised forms of domestic abuse.

The film has already welcomed incredible early reviews with Domestic Abuse Specialist Nicky Brindley MBE describing it as “a true masterpiece”, and Domestic Abuse Advocate Dorothy Zimmerman hailing it as a “revelation to start a revolution.” West Midlands audiences will now be able to experience it at an exclusive free screening on Millennium Point’s giant screen on Friday 8 March.

Writer and star, Samantha Beckinsale will be joining the event to introduce the film. Samantha said: “I’m over the moon that Millennium Point and all the sponsors have supported this LOVE? Project event and am very much looking forward to introducing LOVE? to West Midlands audiences. Domestic abuse can happen to anyone, be perpetrated by anyone, and has common patterns across the world. By spreading this message via our film, we hope to help people recognise the signs and effect of domestic abuse and the tactics used by perpetrators of these crimes. Coercive control kills and without a fist being raised.”

Samantha will be joined by multi-award-winning family lawyer and Domestic Abuse Advocate Richard Port MBE, family barrister Rachel Bloxwich from 3PB Chambers, and representatives from Our Family Wizard, who are proud sponsors of this event. There will also be an opportunity to enjoy drinks and networking after the screening.

Rebecca Delmore, Commercial Director at Millennium Point, said: “We are honoured to be able to amplify the reach of this incredibly important and powerful film on Millennium Point’s giant screen. I hope that audience members will feel empowered to further spread the film’s important message.”

Tickets can be booked here.
