Bill Nighy (Love Actually, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and Carey Mulligan (Inside Llewyn Davis, The Great Gatsby) feature in the highly anticipated production of David Hare’s Skylight, directed by Stephen Daldry (The Audience), broadcast live from the West End by National Theatre Live.
On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan) receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy), a successful and charismatic restaurateur whose wife has recently died.
As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires.

ALTMAN WITH DIRECTOR RON MANN AND KATHRYN REED ALTMAN
Friday October 24 - 7:30 p.m.
ALTMAN director Ron Mann and Robert Altman’s widow Kathryn Reed Altman, will be at The Ross on October 24 for a Q&A with the audience following the 7:30 p.m. screening.
Canadian filmmaker and producer Ron Mann is renowned for his genre-bending approach to documentary cinema that explores art forms and contemporary popular culture with vision and verve. From jazz (Imagine the Sound, 1981), spoken word (Poetry in Motion, 1982), comics (Comic Book Confidential, 1988), dance (Twist, 1992), marijuana (Grass, 1999), car culture (Tales of the Rat Fink, 2006), and fungus (Know Your Mushrooms, 2009), Mann’s films invoke the ethos and spirit of his subjects in resonant and contemporary ways. Ron has visited Lincoln to show his movies at The Ross several time in the past.
KATHRYN REED ALTMAN
A partner and collaborator in every sense, Kathryn Reed Altman is Robert Altman’s widow and mother to two of his sons, Robert Reed Altman and Matthew Altman. They met in 1959 when he was directing an episode of the television series Whirlybirds, in which she had been cast. She was deeply involved with every one of his projects thereafter.
