The last season of the hit HBO series sees a return to the Atlantic City of Enoch “Nucky” Thompson (Steve Buscemi), seven years after season four ended so memorably. After the golden but bloody days of prohibition, in 1931 the hangover has set in – the Great Depression also hits the pleasure resort on the Atlantic coast. Can Nucky and co once more manage to save there necks? Buscemi, Kelly MacDonald, Michael Shannon, Stephen Graham and Patricia Arquette again turn in bravura performances. The first two episodes of season five (Golden Days for Boys and Girls and The Good Listener) will be screened as OVs. Free tickets (up to 5 per person) are available in all Filmfest box offices.
