There will be a rare opportunity to see Cornish black comedy Weekend Retreat on Monday. The West Briton-sponsored screening of writer and director Brett Harvey's micro-budget first feature-length film celebrates his crowning as best director at the recent London Independent Film Festival. Tickets for the 8.15pm showing can be bought from Truro Plaza on Lemon Street or www.wtwcinemas.co.uk. For the full story and a review see page 54. In this scene from the film Karen, played by Esther Hall, flees the house she and her partner have inadvertently ended up sharing with bungling burglars.
