Film description

On a horse farm during the summer of 1973, thirteen-year-old Jennifer (Laura Dern) began a relationship with two coaches that would shape her identity for the rest of her life. Based on a true story, The Tale chronicles Jennifer’s adult journey to distinguish the reality she has constructed from the truth she must confront. 


This screening is being presented in association with SARSVL - ‘Support After Rape & Sexual Violence Leeds’.
