Reclaim The Frame brings its next screening to Tyneside Cinema on Saturday 14th July. Next up it’s Pin Cushion, with the screening of the original and inventive drama also featuring a Q&A with the director Deborah Haywood, plus actor Joanna Scanlan (The Thick of It, Getting On, Bridget Jones Baby, No Offence and more) and the producer of the film Gavin Humphries.

The film is the tale of mother Lyn and daughter Iona and their very close relationship, which is put the test when trying to make a new life in a new town. Iona makes new friends and this makes Lyn feel left out. Tension follows, and both Mother and Daughter retreat into a fantasy lifestyle and a web of lies.

Two glittering misfits such as these are so watchable and knitted together in such a fascination relationship as eccentric as it is suffocating is going to make this quirky film a real cult favourite.

Pin Cushion is at Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle on Saturday 14th July.
