Katie Tay­lor is uni­ver­sally ac­knowl­edged as the game-changer who put women’s ama­teur box­ing on the map.

She won six ama­teur Eu­ro­pean cham­pi­onships, five world ama­teur cham­pi­onships and an Olympic Gold Medal at the Lon­don 2012 Olympic Games.

But a dev­as­tat­ing year – both per­son­ally and pro­fes­sion­ally – cul­mi­nated when she failed to de­fend her Olympic crown with a sur­pris­ing de­feat at Rio 2016.

‘Katie’ is an in­ti­mate take on the boxer’s ef­forts to re­build her ca­reer and her life fol­low­ing that dis­ap­point­ment.

Whi­taker had un­prece­dented ac­cess to the boxer as she turned pro­fes­sional.

Tick­ets are €8 or €6.50 con­ces­sion and avail­able at mer­maid­arts­cen­ peace­ful ex­is­tence, ex­cept when ter­rorised by vi­o­lent for­mer boxer Si­mone. Be­liev­ing that he can be­friend and pacify this lo­cal thug, Mar­cello gets caught up in a world of petty crime and drugs, a mis­take that will have far-reach­ing con­se­quences for him.

Ac­claimed Ital­ian di­rec­tor Mat­teo Gar­rone (Go­mor­rah, Tale of Tales) re­turns with this lat­est film – a pow­er­ful at­mo­spheric, grip­ping drama, which won the Best Ac­tor Prize at the 2018 Cannes Film Fes­ti­val.
