Disney has announced that the Searchlight Pictures’ BAFTA and Oscar-nominated film “Empire of Light,” is going to be coming to Disney+ in Australia and New Zealand on April 19th 2023.
The film is directed by Academy Award winner Sam Mendes and stars Academy Award winner Olivia Colman, Micheal Ward, Toby Jones, and Academy Award winner Colin Firth.
Set in and around a faded old cinema in an English coastal town in the early 1980s, “Empire of Light” follows Hilary (Olivia Colman) a cinema manager struggling with her mental health, and Stephen (Micheal Ward), a new employee who longs to escape this provincial town in which he faces daily adversity. Both Hilary and Stephen find a sense of belonging through their unlikely and tender relationship and come to experience the healing power of music, cinema, and community.
