The Magistrate (Mark Rylance, Dunkirk, Bridge of Spies)) of an isolated frontier settlement on the border of an unnamed empire looks forward to an easy retirement until the arrival of Colonel Joll (Johnny Depp, Pirates of the Caribbean, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas), whose task it is to report on the activities of the ‘barbarians’ and on the security situation on the border. Joll conducts a series of ruthless interrogations, which leads the Magistrate to question his loyalty to the empire.
Waiting For The Barbarians was directed by Ciro Guerra (Birds of Passage) and written by Nobel Prize-winning author J.M. Coetzee, who adapted the screenplay from his own novel. Two-time Academy Award winner Chris Menges was the cinematographer, and Robert Pattinson (Twilight, High Life) also stars.
The film’s distributor, Samuel Goldwyn Films, will split the remaining revenue with Tampa Theatre, 50/50. Please note that this arrangement, in these unprecedented times, means that we are unable to offer Member pricing for virtual screenings. Thanks for your understanding, and THANK YOU FOR CONTINUING TO SUPPORT TAMPA THEATRE!
