Film: Leviathan (2014)
  • Jill Craigie Cinema, Roland Levinsky Building, University of Plymouth

Save event

Though it takes place in a small town and involves only a handful of characters, Leviathan has a feeling of expansiveness, even grandeur. Soon we see the husks of abandoned sea-faring vessels along the water’s edge, where, later in the film, we’ll behold the enormous skeleton of a beached whale - the title refers to Hobbes’s Leviathan, the classic work about liberty and the state, and also the whale.
