One of the most highly anticipated films of 2022, SWIFF audiences will be among the first to witness the latest cinematic masterpiece from visionary director, Robert Eggers (The Witch, The Lighthouse).

In Eggers’ most ambitious film to date, The Northman follows a young Viking prince on his quest to avenge his father's murder, starring Swedish-born Alexander Skarsgård – in the best role of his career - taking on the title role in a physical transformation that would make even Conan the Barbarian blush. Skarsgård’s more than intimidating Amleth brings unflinching focus and beastly grandeur to his unwavering quest for revenge.

Featuring a formidable cast, with Nicole Kidman (Killing of a Sacred Deer, SWIFF’18), Ethan Hawke (The Truth, SWIFF ‘20), Claus Bang (The Square, SWIFF’18), and frequent collaborators, Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch), Willem Dafoe (The Lighthouse, At Eternity's Gate, SWIFF'19), Kate Dickey (The Witch) – and one of the most exciting returns to screen after a 20-year absence, Björk (Dancer in the Dark, Best Actress Cannes 2002), as the mystical Seeress.

Penned by Eggers and Icelandic, poet, and novelist, Sjón, (long-time collaborator with Bjork), The Northman furnaces the epic majesty of Viking folklore together with Eggers’ vivid world building, making for a bountiful, cinematic feast of epic proportions.

Doors open 6pm for 6.30pm start.
