A director’s feature debut is a chance to make a statement and A Banquet from Ruth Paxton does this emphatically. 

It is one of the most anticipated films showing at this year’s Glasgow Film Festival.

This physiological-thriller sees a family endure one trauma after another in a story that questions your beliefs. We see a mother-daughter relationship pushed to the extremes all whilst exploring issues of mental health and anxiety.

This screenplay from Justin Bull stars Sienna Guillory alongside Jessica Alexander, Ruby Stokes as well as Lindsay Duncan in a tense family drama that keeps you on edge.

We caught up with Sienna to talk about peas, dealing with trauma and working with Ben Wheatley again for The Meg 2.

Signature Entertainment presents A Banquet in Cinemas & Digital Platforms 11th March and showing at Glasgow Film Festival on March 5th – tickets are available here
