Desiree Akhavan Presents: Big (1988)

As part of our Women in Film series, and to celebrate the release of her brilliant new film The Miseducation of Cameron Post, we’ve teamed up with the incredibly talented writer/director/actor Desiree Akhavan to select a few of her favourite female-driven films, screening every Tuesday in August.

Directed with real wit and warmth by Penny Marshall, Big was the film that really made the world fall in love with Tom Hanks, and it celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.

Check out the other screenings in our Desiree Akhavan Presents season:

Tuesday 7 August: Death Becomes Her

Tuesday 14 August: Preview – The Miseducation of Cameron Post + Director Q&A

Tuesday 28 August: A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
