Empire of Light

“Empire of Light” is the story of a large motion picture palace in Australia in 1981 and the people who work there. Olivia Colman plays, Hilary a manager. She is a single, serious minded woman who the owner, played by Colin Firth, who uses her. There are various other employees and into their world comes a young, black man played by Micheal Ward. He builds a relationship with Hilary. She has some issues to deal with, besides Colin Firth’s harassment. This film is a charming character study, but a little slow at first. Micheal Ward is quite good as the new employee. Not for everyone, this is a nice period character study. Enjoyable.
