Nicolas Cage has forged a special place in our collective psyche through three decades of eccentric film roles that regularly involve high stakes and high emotions. Think Face/Off, Adaptation, National Treasure and Moonstruck, just to name a few.

One of Hollywood’s most prolific actors, Cage has been taken with varying degrees of seriousness throughout his career – from the heights of a 1995 Best Actor Oscar win, to the viral YouTube phenomenon ‘Cage Rage’, but he is increasingly revered as one of the most original actors of his generation.

Like Cage, this hair raising double-bill brings together two films that don’t know when to stop, linked by their formidable soundtracks, vivid and violent imagery, wild and unpredictable plots, deep and unexpected reserves of romance plus two fully committed and fearless performances from our leading man.

David Lynch’s 1990 Wild at Heart teams Cage with Laura Dern for an archetypal young lovers on the run road movie that veers into darker territory. It’s a Lynchian nightmare featuring snakeskin jackets, Elvis and a literal fairy godmother.

Cage goes further than ever in Mandy, a hallucinogenic, supernatural revenge epic that pits the power of love against demonic and diabolical evil, resulting in sights, sounds and sensations so extreme that only Somerset House can contain them.

Eat Your Own Ears DJs will set the mood with an eclectic live DJ set from 19.00.

"It’s this full-bodied commitment to his craft which has made Cage an enduring presence in Hollywood for some three decades."

Little White Lies

"Lynch’s kinky fairy tale is a triumph of startling images and comic invention."

"How to describe Mandy? Imagine a live-action version of the cover art from a band that sang about dragons, Vikings and both Sodom and Gomorrah"

Empire

"Cage is on magnificent, mind-boggling form .. This outrageously over the top film is nothing if not uninhibited, often visually amazing, not to say barking mad."
