Disney has announced that the latest Searchlight Pictures film, “Empire Of Light” is coming to Disney+ in Canada on Wednesday, 8th February 2023.
From director and writer Sam Mendes (“1917” and “Skyfall”), “Empire of Light” is a moving drama about the power of human connection during turbulent times. Set in and around a faded old cinema in an English coastal town in the early 1980s, it 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.
Due to the erratic global release schedule of “Empire Of Light”, the international release of the film will vary greatly in other countries like the UK and Australia, since the film has only recently been released in the UK and won’t be coming out in Australia in cinemas until February. In the United States, this will be the last new Searchlight film that will be released on HBO Max.
