American Fiction (15)

American Fiction

A novelist who is fed up with the establishment profiting from "Black" entertainment uses a pen name to write a book that propels him to the heart of hypocrisy and the madness he claims to disdain.


At once broadly comedic and bitingly barbed, ‘American Fiction’ is the story of Thelonious “Monk” Ellison (an outstanding Jeffrey Wright), a writer and malcontent who unwillingly finds himself back in his East Coast hometown. There he is confronted with the family turmoil he tries to avoid, heightened by growing irritation with the expectations he feels from the literary establishment about what “Black literature” ought to be. This is an extremely funny movie that lands some sharp blows, and a stellar feature debut from seasoned TV writer Cord Jefferson, where he confronts our culture's obsession with reducing people to outrageous stereotypes.

The Trust Fall (15)

The Trust Fall

Julian Asange


The story of a man who risked everything to bring the truth to light.


Having dominated headlines in the 2010s, the WikiLeaks founder has dropped out of sight having been confined at London’s Belmarsh prison since 2019. And that was kind of the plan, this impassioned documentary asserts, with the aid of staunch defenders including the late John Pilger, Tariq Ali, Jill Stein, Pentagon Papers leaker Daniel Ellsworth and Assange family members. “The persecution of Julian has been a long, slow form of killing somebody,” says Pilger; witnessing Assange’s trajectory from a buccaneering truth-teller to a frail, mentally damaged prisoner, perpetually denied justice, it’s hard to disagree. The film documents in detail WikiLeaks’ role in exposing US war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan, including graphic footage of a helicopter attack in Baghdad in 2007 that killed several innocent civilians and two Reuters photographers. And it convincingly argues that the US has sought to punish him ever since, aided by successive, supine UK and Australian governments.

Rosalie (15)

Rosalie

An amazing true story about a sensuous, unusual woman ahead of her time, who just happened to be the first bearded lady attraction.


Rosalie lives in a small French village of the 1870s, she is a young woman unlike any other. However, she hides a secret: Rosalie was born with a face and body covered in hair, a peculiarity she has concealed her all her life to stay safe, shaving to fit in. Until Abel, an indebted bar owner unaware of her secret, marries Rosalie for her dowry. Will Abel be able to love Rosalie and see her as the woman she is? This is a delicate drama about a woman who refused to accept social beauty standards of her time, with terrific charismatic lead performances from Nadia Tereszkiewicz as Rosalie and Benoît Magimel as her husband. The film has plenty of applications to modern times - not least of all in its appeal for tolerance of others’ differences - but the film works best as a quiet study in accepting oneself.

A House in Jerusalem (12A)

A House in Jerusalem

The story of a Jewish British girl who is moved from England to Jerusalem for a new start that can help her heal from the death of her mother.


12-year-old Rebecca (Miley Locke), following the death of her mother, relocates to Jerusalem with her grieving father to begin a new life in a house which once belonged to her grandfather. The house has an older past which she has not reckoned with, and her discovery of this goes hand in hand with her developing awareness of the political climate surrounding her. After a supernatural encounter, her father wants her to see a psychologist as she did after her mother’s death, but this leads her to seek comfort with her new ghostly companion, a girl who insists that she's not dead, just hiding in the house where she grew up, waiting for her family to return. An eerily suspenseful and beautifully told heart-warming story exploring the strength of memory and the power of love.

Freud's Last Session (15)

Freud's Last Session

Sigmund Freud (Anthony Hopkins) and converted atheist C.S. Lewis (Matthew Goode) meet as their worlds are going through drastic change.


September 1939, Hitler has just invaded Poland and set Europe at war. Freud arrived in London a year earlier, after the Nazis marched into Vienna, whilst Lewis is an Oxford don who has not yet written his beloved Narnia books, but has recently embraced Christianity after years as a nonbeliever. These two titans of 20th-century thought meet at the psychoanalyst’s London home to discuss God, father figures and, of course, sex. This lavish film is based on a modest off-Broadway play that captivated theatre audiences a decade ago. Playwright Mark St. Germain worked with director Matthew Brown to reshape his two-character drama into this intriguing film, which also benefits from wonderful cinematography and production design.

Hard Miles (12A)

Hard Miles

A prison social worker assembles a cycling team of teenage convicts and takes them on a transformative 1,000-mile ride. An exhilarating, inspirational and uplifting true story.


At a medium-security correctional school in Colorado, beleaguered coach Greg Townsend (Matthew Modine) rounds up an unlikely crew of incarcerated students for a seemingly impossible bike ride from Denver to the Grand Canyon. As the beginner cyclists battle heatstroke, speed wobbles, and the greatest enemy of all cyclists - a chafed crotch - they must learn to stop fighting and ride together as a peloton. As caring social worker Haddie (Cynthia Kaye McWilliams) attempts to be the voice of reason, coach Townsend pushes the boys to their limit, and cracks begin to form. This is an inspiring, positive role-model film, and visually, Hanna and cinematographer Mack Fisher beautifully capture the rugged and harrowing landscapes.

Hit Man (15)

Hit Man

Richard Linklater’s latest sees a professor moonlighting as a hit man of sorts, descending into dubious territory when he finds himself attracted to a woman who enlists his services. Wildly enetertaining and laugh-out loud clever.


This neo-noir comedy stars Glen Powell as strait-laced professor Gary Johnson, who moonlights as a fake hit man for the New Orleans Police Department. Gifted at inhabiting different guises and personalities to catch hapless people hoping to bump off their enemies, Gary descends into morally dubious territory when he finds himself attracted to one of those potential criminals, a beautiful young woman named Madison (Adria Arjona). As Madison falls for one of Gary's hit man personas - the mysteriously sexy Ron - their steamy affair sets off a chain reaction of play acting, deception, and escalating stakes. This deceptively dark thriller is loaded with laughs, and one of the most purely entertaining films of Linklater's (‘Before Sunrise’, ‘Boyhood’) career.

Quintessentially Irish (PG)

Quintessentially Irish

We are delighted to welcome director Frank Mannion for a Q&A (Sat screening only) following his acclaimed feature documentary, described by the Daily Mail as “a love letter to everything great and Irish” and “a fast paced and entertaining look” at the Emerald Isle.

 

An all-star cast led by Pierce Brosnan, two Presidents, a Prince, a pop star and an unconventional Irish Lord, the film is a journey through Ireland's cultural heritage, exploring the origins of whiskey production, the world-famous Guinness brewery, age-old equestrian pursuits, traditional Gaelic athletics and the enchanting appeal of Dunsany Castle. Featuring interviews with various celebrities and other well-known figures talking about what it means to be Irish. But not just your conventional celebrities, there are some very interesting chats such as with Irish-Nigerian broadcaster and author Emma Dabiri painfully remembering growing up as the only black girl in school in Dublin and the exploration of the prejudices faced by Irish immigrants to the US and the UK.

Shashvi Shashvi Maq'vali


In this critically acclaimed drama, a single woman unexpectedly falls for a man, catching her between the choice of a relationship or independence.


Etero (a brilliant Eka Chavleishvili), a 48-year-old woman living in a small village in Georgia, has chosen to remain unmarried. She cherishes her freedom, as much as her cakes, but her choice to live alone is often the cause of gossip among her fellow villagers. Unexpectedly, she finds herself falling into a passion with a man and is suddenly faced with the decision of whether to pursue the traditional route of coupling or continue to pursue a life of independence. This is a film which tells us what most films contrive to ignore: love and sex is not just for the lovely and the sexy and the young. This is a gentle, sensual gem of a film. (Subtitles)

The Teachers’ Lounge

Das Lehrerzimmer


Incredibly well-reviewed film where a teacher’s student is suspected of theft, so decides to get to the bottom of the matter. Caught between her ideals and the school system, the consequences of her actions threaten to break her.


Carla Nowak (Leonie Benesch) starts her first job at a high school where she stands out among the new staff because of her idealism. When a series of thefts occur and one of her students is suspected, she decides to get to the bottom of the matter on her own. Between outraged parents, opinionated colleagues and aggressive students, she is relentlessly confronted with the structures of the school system. The more desperately she tries to do everything right, the more the young teacher threatens to break.

A smart and provocative modern parable with the heart of a thriller, ‘The Teachers' Lounge’ brilliantly uses its setting as the backdrop for a look at how quickly even tight-knit communities can be destabilized.

Trainspotting (18)

Trainspotting

In this modern-day cult classic, an addict deeply immersed in the Edinburgh drug scene, tries to clean up and get out despite the allure of drugs and the influence of friends.


Heroin addict Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) stumbles through bad ideas and sobriety attempts with his unreliable friends - Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), Begbie (Robert Carlyle), Spud (Ewen Bremner) and Tommy (Kevin McKidd). He also has an underage girlfriend, Diane (Kelly Macdonald), along for the ride. After cleaning up and moving from Edinburgh to London, Mark finds he can't escape the life he left behind when Begbie and Sick Boy show up. The film has lost none of its edge today, managing to be both inarguably of its time, but also has not dated nearly as most youth culture movies tend to. This is partly due to Danny Boyle’s canny music choices – Iggy Pop, Lou Reed had Underworld - plus iconic scenes like the boys watching Archie Gemmill in 1978, scoring for Scotland against Netherlands in the World Cup.

The Dead Don't Hurt (15)

The Dead Don't Hurt

Viggo Mortensen stars in, composes, writes and directs this Western about two pioneers fighting for their lives and their love on the American frontier during the Civil War.


When the man she loves, Holger Olsen (Mortensen), goes off to fight in the Civil War, Vivienne Le Coudy (Vicky Krieps) must fend for herself in a place controlled by a corrupt Mayor (Danny Huston) and crooked land baron (Garret Dillahunt). When Olsen returns from the war, he and Vivienne must confront and make peace with the person each has become. Krieps brings to this Western a particular femininity missing from most in the genre; a softness that is singular to her and her style of performance, and the film is much richer for it. This is a beautifully shot and sombre film about an old-school hero. (Some subtitles)

Riddle of Fire (12A)

Riddle of Fire

A neo-fairytale set in Wyoming, USA where three mischievous children embark on a woodland odyssey when their mother sends them on an errand.


Shot entirely on 16mm film, we follow Hazel (Charlie Stover), Alice (Phoebe Ferro) and Jodie (Skyler Peters) on the hunt to obtain ingredients for their poorly mother’s favourite blueberry pie. On the way the children are kidnapped by poachers, battle a witch, outwit a huntsman, befriend a fairy and bond together to become best friends forever. Beguiling, original and ultimately celebratory, the movie is a delightful romp through the imaginative worlds of childhood. Comparable in style to those 1980s classics ‘Stand By Me’ and ‘The Goonies’, don’t be surprised if this finds itself in the ‘cult’ section of film libraries in a few years’ time.

There's Still Tomorrow (15)

There's Still Tomorrow

C'è Ancora Domani


Set in postwar 1940s Italy, we follow a woman breaking traditional family patterns and aspiring to a different future. A huge box office smash in Italy, and now getting the critical acclaim it deserves worldwide.


This is a richly sentimental working-class drama (with a few laughs) of postwar Rome. A story of domestic abuse whose heroine (actress and director Paola Cortellesi) finally escapes from misogyny and cruelty through a piece of narrative sleight-of-hand that borders on magic-neorealism, performed with theatrical flair and marvellously composed in luminous monochrome. The film pays homage to early pictures by De Sica and Fellini, and Cortellesi’s own performance is consciously in the spirit of divas such as Anna Magnani and Sophia Loren. This is storytelling with terrific confidence and panache, and currently rating 100% on the film critics’ website Rotten Tomatoes. (Subtitles)

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga (15)

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga

The origin story of renegade warrior Furiosa (Anya Taylor-Joy) before her encounter and team-up with Mad Max.


Set 15 to 20 years before the events of ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’, as the world falls apart, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and into the hands of a Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus (Chris Hemsworth). While two Tyrants war for dominance over the Citadel, Furiosa survives many trials as she plots a way back home through the Wasteland. It is astounding to think that the original ‘Mad Max’ (1979) director George Miller is still creating exhilarating and ground-breaking films from the franchise today. He hasn’t just given us more of the same with ‘Furiosa’, just as he surprised us in 2015 with one of the best action films of the century with ‘Fury Road’, but he has not forgone the glue that holds these films together: spectacular action sequences, sweeping landscapes and a colourful cast of wild characters.

Egyptian extreme athletes Omar Samra and Omar Nour enter the world’s toughest rowing race: the Atlantic Challenge, an unsupported 3,000 mile open-ocean race from the Canary Islands to Antigua, despite neither having experience on open water. The athletes trained for an entire year before embarking on the voyage in a high-tech unsinkable rowboat, which they dedicate to the plight of refugees worldwide for whom unimaginable peril, exposure and even death at sea comes to tens of thousands annually. What they couldn’t prepare for is what actually happened. This is a gripping adventure on the high seas, with a forceful finale that will have us all contemplating why many people choose to risk their lives.

Rome, Open City

Roma Città Aperta


During the Nazi occupation of Rome in 1944 a Resistance leader is chased by the Nazis as he seeks refuge and a way to escape. Take advantage of this 4K remaster to see a true masterpiece on the big screen.


Giorgio Manfredi (Marcello Pagliero), one of the leaders of the Italian Resistance, is tracked down by the Nazis. He goes to his friend Francesco's (Francesco Grandjacquet) and asks Francesco's fiancé Pina (Anna Magnani) for help, who in turn enlists the aid of a courageous priest (the excellent Aldo Fabriz). The visceral cinematography blends the grit of a documentary with the heart and soul of a drama (Fellini collaborated with Rosselini on the screenplay) as the people of Rome wrestle with the constraints, compromises and collusions of life during wartime. Described by Martin Scorsese as "the most precious moment of film history". Do you need more reason to see this film? (Subtitles)

The Bikeriders (15)

The Bikeriders

A striking drama following the rise of a fictional 1960s Midwestern motorcycle club through the lives of its members.


Jeff Nichols’ film immerses you in the look, feel and sounds of the bare-knuckled, grease-covered subculture of 1960s motorcycle riders. Kathy (Jodie Comer), a strong-willed member of the Vandals who is married to wild and reckless Benny (Austin Butler), recounts the Vandals' evolution from a local club of outsiders united by good times, rumbling bikes and respect for their strong, steady leader Johnny (Tom Hardy). Nichols genuinely captures the spirit of this particular rugged era and keeps your attention even if you never gave a second thought to those packs of bike riders passing you on the highway. Even with a cast that includes Tom Hardy, it is Jodie Cromer who steals the show - she is stunning! "Austin Butler and Tom Hardy are cool personified." Variety

Four Little Adults (18)

Four Little Adults

Neljä Pientä Aikuista


In the middle of an infidelity crisis, a middle-aged couple decide to open their marriage and venture into polyamory.


When the marriage of politician Juulia (Alma Pöysti) and parish priest Matias (Eero Milonoff) hits a rocky patch due to Matias’ affair with Enni (Oona Airola), the expected tearful confrontation follows. But Juulia sits down with Matias and Enni and suggests an open marriage, handing the pair a guide to polyamory. Evoking the middle-class relationship turmoil of much of Ingmar Bergman’s work, albeit without his propensity for dramatic heft, this Finnish film charts not so much a love triangle as a love rhombus. It is a mature piece stuffed with thorny relationship dilemmas, pre-occupied by sex and populated chiefly by a sparse cast of well-heeled, intelligent characters in safe, comfortable surroundings. If Bergman were alive, this is exactly what he would be creating. (Subtitles)

A darkly brooding fable set on a remote Chilean island about a teenage girl seeking alternative justice for her father’s death.


On the end-of-the-world island of Chiloé in the late 19th century, a young Indigenous girl named Rosa (Valentina Véliz Caileo) lives and works with her father on a farm. When the foreman (Sebastian Hulk) brutally turns on Rosa's father (Francisco Nunez), she sets out for justice, seeking help from the king (Daniel Antivilo) of a powerful organization of sorcerers. Based on remarkable events in the 1880’s, this is part recreation of legend and history, part politico/religious allegory, part revenge story and part straight-up supernatural thriller. Don’t expect jump scares or a traditional horror film about witchcraft, the wonderful landscapes and overall aura of Chiloé, and its cryptic folklore, is what will overwhelm you.

A family of refugees from Syria, an English teacher from Afghanistan and a border guard all meet on the Polish-Belarusian border during a humanitarian crisis. A stunning film.


In the treacherous and swampy forests that make up the so-called "green border" between Belarus and Poland, refugees from the Middle East and Africa trying to reach the European Union are trapped in a geopolitical crisis cynically engineered by Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko. In an attempt to provoke Europe, refugees are lured to the border by propaganda promising easy passage to the EU. Finding themselves pawns in this hidden war, the lives of activist Julia, border guard Jan and a Syrian family intertwine. Thirty years after her Oscar-nominated ‘Europa Europa’, Agnieszka Holland's poignant and essential film opens our eyes and speaks to the heart, challenging viewers to reflect on the moral choices that fall to ordinary people every day. This is powerful cinema that will remain fresh in the mind long after viewing. (Subtitles)

Treasure (12A)

Treasure

Following the fall of the iron curtain in 1991, a laissez-faire father and tightly strung daughter set out on a road trip to Poland to revisit his youth, and her roots. A touching and resonant drama that treats a difficult subject with just the right amount of comedy and light-heartedness.


This father-daughter road trip set in 1990s Poland, follows Ruth (Lena Dunham), an American music journalist, and her father Edek (Stephen Fry), a charmingly stubborn Holocaust survivor, on a journey to his homeland. While Ruth is eager to make sense of her family’s past, Edek embarks on the trip with his own agenda. This emotional, funny culture clash of two New Yorkers exploring post-socialist Poland is a powerful example of how reconnecting with family and the past can be an unexpected treasure. The film addresses the holocaust very differently to other recent films and TV series, using whimsy and anecdote instead of shock. The two leads make an appealing odd couple, with Dunham as the grumpy Walter Matthau-type to Fry’s ever optimistic Jack Lemmon. (Some subtitles)

Six-year-old Cléo loves her nanny Gloria more than anything. When Gloria must return to Cape Verde to care for her own children, the two must make the most of their last summer together.


Gloria (Ilça Moreno Zego) has looked after Cléo (Louise Mauroy-Panzani) since the child was a baby. The pair adore each other, so when Gloria’s mother’s passing calls her to return home to her native Cape Verde, their world is thrown into a spin. Cléo single dad (Arnaud Rebotini) who works long hours daily, sees how much his daughter misses her nanny and finally agrees that she spends her Summer holiday with Gloria. Most of the film takes place on the beautiful island in Cape Verde as Cléo shares a roof in Gloria’s tiny home with her two children, Nanda and César. This is an exceptional solo directorial debut from Marie Amachoukeli-Barsacq who based the story on her own childhood experience with her nanny. Critics have been raving about this remarkable, feel-good piece of cinema (100% on Rotten Tomatoes), and Mauroy-Panzani as six-year-old Cléo is a revelation.

Hounds (15)

Hounds

A father and son in the suburbs of Casablanca get by on petty crimes for a local mob. When a kidnapping goes wrong, they must find a way to dispose of the body.


Hassan (Abdellatif Masstouri) and his son Issam (Ayoub Elaid) are a mismatched pair of itinerant criminals in Casablanca who are given a kidnapping job by a local crime lord. The plan does not go as expected and the duo are left with the task of disposing of a body – a rather large one. During the dark night that follows, the balance of power and authority between father and son shifts, though the price Issam pays for taking control will be, if all goes well, a life of indentured mob servitude. The film is briskly told with atmospheric tension, visceral and confidently cavalier in its depiction of everyday underworld brutality, with a sharp, street-lit sense of. Viewers will appreciate actors rich in weathered, storied faces of the kind not typically found by the dozen in acting schools. Very well received in Cannes 2023. (Subtitles)

Slow (15)

Slow

Dancer Elena and sign language interpreter Dovydas meet and form a beautiful bond. As they dive into a new relationship, they must navigate how to build their own kind of intimacy.


Elena (Greta Grineviciute) is a contemporary dancer, living her life freely bouncing from relationships and sexual encounters without a serious commitment. When she meets interpreter Dovyda (Kęstutis Cicėnas), someone who joins to interpret for a hearing-impaired group of teenagers she’s teaching, there’s an instant spark. When he discloses that he is asexual, she is unsure how to respond. This peels back a layer of modern dating that is not often seen in film, and it is done so in a way that feels natural and poignant. It emphasises the vulnerability of its characters from a deft vision by Kavtaradze, ‘Slow’ is a subtle but impactful film. Moving and beautiful. (Subtitles)

Stromboli (PG)

Stromboli

Stromboli (Terra di Dio)


In this visually rich and unique film (the second in our Italian Neo-Realism season), a young woman marries a fisherman to escape from a prison camp. But she cannot get used to the tough life in their volcano-threatened village, Stromboli.


Lithuanian Karin (Ingrid Bergman) flees her war-ravaged home country and winds up in Italy, where she is sent to an internment camp. There, she meets Antonio (Mario Vitale), a POW who has just been freed. They enjoy a brief romance, punctuated by Antonio's marriage proposal, and Karin, seeing her chance to escape the camp, accepts. But Antonio takes her back to Stromboli, the volcanic island he lives on, and Karin struggles with a language barrier, brutal living conditions and her outsider status. This partnership (professional and romantic) between Bergman and Rossellini started when she sent a letter to the director after seeing his ‘Rome, Open City’ (also screening this season), saying that if he could use a Swede who could speak good English, but could only say “ti amo” in Italian, to get in touch with her. The rest is history.

Rose (cert-tbc)

Rose

Two sisters have their relationship challenged on an anticipated coach trip to Paris. Based on the true story of the director’s own two sisters, this is a heartwarming movie about love and devotion.


Inger (Sofie Gråbøl) and Ellen (Lene Maria Christensen) are on a trip to Paris. When Inger announces her struggles with mental health to the group, the sisters are faced with pity from some and discrimination from others. On arrival in Paris, it soon becomes clear that Inger has a hidden agenda concerning a figure from her past, ultimately involving the entire group in her hunt for answers. This is a film about love and care for each other, in spite of our differences, as much as it is a film about not judging a book by its cover. The trip itself brings out many sides of Inger, and director Arden Oplev does a wonderful job ensuring Inger's humanity stays in the spotlight whether through drama or comedy. Because, despite the pitfalls of the subject matter, this is a very funny movie. (Subtitles)

The G

A mysterious older woman seeks revenge on the corrupt legal guardian who destroyed her life.


Ann Hunter (aka "The G", played by Dale Dickey) and her husband retired to an unnamed American suburb 10 years ago. But one day out of the blue they are snatched from their home by a corrupt legal guardian who believes they have hidden wealth. Their home and assets are legally stripped from them and they are put in a prison-like "eldercare facility". Trapped in a corrupt and terrifying system, The G begins to show her true mettle as she and her loyal granddaughter fight to get them out... and get revenge on the people who did this. “I’m not a good person”, she says “But I do have other qualities.” This turns out to be something of an understatement. Dickey is remarkable in this very smart and not run-of-the-mill revenge thriller.

Kinds of Kindness (cert-tbc)

Kinds of Kindness

Yorgos Lanthimos and Emma Stone team up for a third time (‘The Favourite’, ‘Poor Things’) in this triptych fable which features the usual brave filmmaking mixed with dark comedy. A film where the director once again puts up a mirror to our flawed society and shows us the worst, and also the best, that humanity has to offer.


A man seeks to break free from his predetermined path and tries to take control of his own life; a policeman is alarmed that his wife who was missing-at-sea has returned and seems a different person; and a woman determined to find a specific someone with a special ability, is destined to become a prodigious spiritual leader. There is always a clamouring of A-listers to get into a Lanthimos film, and this one has a few regulars (Emma Stone, Willem Dafoe, Margaret Qualley) and a couple of newcomers (a brilliant Jesse Plemmons, Hong Chau). For those of you who discovered Lanthimos with ‘The Favourite’ or ‘Poor Things’, get ready to meet the original ‘Dogtooth’ version - unfiltered, uncut, old-school Yorgos. One of the highlights at the recent 2024 Cannes Film Festival.

Capturing the experiences of Afghanistan women's lives under the Taliban since they took control of Kabul, this documentary not only deserves our attention but also our action.


We first see what had become normal life in Kabul. A busy market filled with produce and customers. Carefree children play together. A beautiful woman walks the streets in colourful attire. But we are then introduced to the three women who form the core of the film. We follow dentist Zahra, activist Taranom and government employee Sharifa in real time as they fight to recover their autonomy. Director Mani captures the spirit and resilience of the Afghan women through a raw depiction of their harrowing plight, offering a powerful window into the seismic impact on women's rights and livelihoods after Kabul fell to the Taliban in 2021.

Fancy Dance (15)

Fancy Dance

Following her sister's disappearance, a Native American hustler kidnaps her niece from the child's white grandparents and sets out for the state powwow in hopes of keeping what is left of their family intact.


Since her sister's disappearance, Jax (Lily Gladstone from ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’) has cared for her niece Roki (Isabel Deroy-Olson) by scraping by on the Seneca-Cayuga reservation in Oklahoma. Every spare minute goes into finding her missing sister while also helping Roki prepare for an upcoming powwow. At the risk of Jax losing custody to Roki's grandfather, Frank (Shea Whigham), the pair hit the road and scour the backcountry to track down Roki's mother in time for the powwow. What begins as a search gradually turns into a far deeper investigation into the complexities and contradictions of Indigenous women moving through a colonized world while at the mercy of a failed justice system. This is both a shrewd familial drama and a slow-burning road film with the cinematic taste of a crime-thriller. Gladstone gives a tremendous performance.

Bye Bye Tiberias

Bye Bye Tibériade


Years after leaving her Palestinian village to pursue an acting career in France, Hiam Abbass returns home with her daughter, in this intimate documentary about four generations of women and their shared legacy of separation.


By telling their story, director Abbass hopes to reclaim and question the personal, historical and visual legacies she inherited and to answer the question “How does a woman find her place when caught between worlds”? A question that applies equally to her and her mother. If there is any one takeaway from the film, it’s the importance of family attachments and the succour they provide. After its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, the essay film, with its mix of the personal and the political, has been a festival favourite, going on to win the Grierson award for best documentary in London and the jury prize ex aequo in Marrakech. It represented Palestine in the Oscar international feature competition. (Subtitles)

The Present

When a young boy discovers he can use an enchanted grandfather clock to go back in time, he teams up with his siblings on a quest to bring their separated parents back together again.


Taylor (Easton Rocket Sweda), one of three siblings in a suburban American family, discovers that he can make time run backwards, going as far as 12 hours into the past. All he must do is physically move the hands of an heirloom upright clock. This proves useful because his parents – mum Jen (Isla Fisher) and dad Eric (Greg Kinnear) – are on a path towards separation, which they hope to announce at a family dinner that evening. So Taylor, who is electively mute, brings out his best ‘Groundhog Day’ tactics, and keeps rewinding time each time tweaking the parents’ day. This is a fun family film that could be enjoyed by all and includes a scene-stealing performance by Arturo Castro as a highly unprofessional therapist.

Orlando, Ma Biographie Politique


Academic virtuoso turned filmmaker Paul B. Preciado's Berlin Film Festival award-winning documentary tells his and others' stories of transition through unique reenactments and visual interpretations of Virginia Woolf's ‘Orlando: A Biography’.


"Come, come! I'm sick to death of this particular self. I want another." Taking Virginia Woolf's novel ‘Orlando: A Biography’ as its starting point, Preciado has fashioned this documentary as a personal essay, historical analysis, and social manifesto which premiered and took home four prizes at the 2023 Berlin Film Festival. For almost a century, Woolf's eponymous hero/heroine has inspired readers for their gender fluidity across physical and spiritual metamorphoses over a 300-year lifetime. Not content to simply update a seminal work, Preciado interrogates the relevance of Orlando in the continuing struggle against anti-trans ideologies and in the fight for global trans rights.

Sunshine (15)

Sunshine

In our second ‘Cult of Cinema’ Danny Boyle film this season (we also screen ‘Trainspotting’), a team of international astronauts is sent on a dangerous mission to reignite the dying Sun in 2057.


In the not-too-distant future, Earth's dying sun spells the end for humanity. In a last-ditch effort to save the planet, a crew of eight men and women ventures into space with a device that could revive the star.  As the Icarus II races toward its fiery destination, an accident, a grave mistake and a distress beacon from a long-lost spaceship throw the desperate mission into a tailspin. In the face of this, Captain Kaneda (Hiroyuki Sanada) keeps his cool, while the streamlined crew - including Cillian Murphy, Rose Byrne, Michelle Yeoh and Chris Evans - more or less keeps it together. With fluid orchestration of the brisk editing, prowling camerawork and unnerving sound design, this is a remarkable film for how it creates life on a space vehicle and the cosmos around it… and it's worth noting that like ‘2001’, the ‘Star Wars’ films and the ‘Alien’ series, it was made in Britain.

Oliver Twist

1948 Version


In Charles Dickens' classic tale, an orphan wends his way from cruel apprenticeship to den of thieves in search of a true home. This is the definitive version, and we are delighted to screen it at New Park to complement the Chichester Festival Theatre Summer musical production of ‘Oliver!’.


When 9-year-old orphan Oliver Twist (John Howard Davies) dares to ask his cruel taskmaster, Mr. Bumble (Francis L. Sullivan), for a second serving of gruel, he's hired out as an apprentice. Escaping that dismal fate, young Oliver falls in with the street urchin Artful Dodger (Anthony Newley) and his criminal mentor, Fagin (Alec Guinness). When kindly Mr. Brownlow (Henry Stephenson) takes Oliver in, Fagin's evil henchman Bill Sikes (Robert Newton) plots to kidnap the boy. This masterly adaptation of the Dickens novel by director David Lean brims with unforgettable scenes and performances, especially Guinness's Fagin and Newton's genuinely frightening Bill Sikes.

In this heartwarming drama, a woman is struggling through her daily routine both at home and at the local chicken factory (Chuck Chuck Baby), when an old flame comes back into the picture.


Present day, industrial North Wales. Helen (Louise Brealey) lives with her ex-husband (Celyn Jones), his 20-year-old girlfriend (Emily Fairn), their new baby - and his dying mother Gwen (Sorcha Cusack). Helen's mundane world takes a surprising turn with Joanne's (Annabel Scholey) return; they were the objects of the other's secret teenage passions. Encouraged by Helen, Joanne starts a playful wooing game. As they fall in love, Helen's zest for life returns but Joanne feels the walls close in as she faces something darker from her past. This is a bighearted, crowd-pleasing tale of love, liberation and female empowerment which boldly uses some musical standards (including Neil Diamond’s ’Dirty Old Town’ and The Pogues’ ‘Dirty Old Tow’) to convey the high emotional stakes at play.

The Parish Boy’s Progress, From Book to Film to Musical


With a new production of ‘Oliver!’ at Chichester Festival Theatre, this talk will trace the history of the many adaptations of the story, from Dickens’s novel to stage and film versions, dramas and musicals.


It is over 185 years since the novel was serialised; since then there have been countless films and television series. This talk by Education Team member Andrew Vance, illustrated with a range of clips, will look at the films from the 1909 Vitograph Studios version up to Roman Polanski’s 2005 film, including David Lean’s famous adaptation with Sir Alec Guinness. Other famous actors who have played Fagin include Lon Chaney, George C Scott, Richard Dreyfuss and Ben Kingsley. It will explore the ways in which depictions of Fagin have changed from Dickens’s original characterisation, including the persistent accusations of antisemitism. Lionel Bart cast Ron Moody, a comic actor, as Fagin in his musical, who then went on to play the role in the Oscar winning film directed by Carol Reed. We can look forward to a new adaptation of ‘Oliver!’, directed by Matthew Bourne, at the Chichester Festival Theatre this summer.

Follows Hans Jürgen Höss, the son of Auschwitz Camp Commandant Rudolf Höss (from the recent ‘The Zone of Interest’), when he confronts his father's involvement in the murder of over a million Jews during the Holocaust.


The Höss clan was fictionally captured in Jonathan Glazer’s Academy Award-winning ‘The Zone of Interest’. Now, the family that inspired the disturbing saga is focused on in this new documentary. The documentary centres on two stories, one of Auschwitz survivor Anita Lasker-Wallfisch and another of Höss recalling his own childhood in the family villa at Auschwitz. The two meet 80 years later, and together with their children, Kai Höss and Maya Lasker-Wallfisch explore their very different hereditary burdens. The documentary includes original excerpts of Rudolf Höss’ autobiography, written shortly before his execution. We will be rescreening ‘The Zone of Interest’to complement this documentary.

The Machine that Kills Bad People

La Macchina Ammazzacattivi


The third (and least known) film in our Italian Neo-Realism season follows a man who is given a special power which he quickly begins to use, and abuse. Rossellini’s highly stylised satire is a morality tale that marks a transition in the filmmaker’s career.


A photographer in a small fishing village is visited by a man who claims to be Saint Andrea. The Saint gives him a special camera device to solve the village's ills - by taking a photograph of an existing picture, the photo subject dies. Initially sure of his good intentions, he aims the weapon at human injustice, but discovers in the process that good and evil are intertwined. Inspired by the commedia dell’arte, complete with political allusions and a strong moral message, the film was initially abandoned by Rossellini in 1948, only to be completed four years later.

The Zone of Interest (12A)

The Zone of Interest

The commandant of Auschwitz and his wife strive to build a dream life for their family in a house and garden next to the camp.


The film observes Rudolf Höss (Christian Friedel) and his wife Hedwig (Sandra Hüller) as they live their happy family life right next door to the concentration camp. Shot like a casual European dramedy about a family at their summer home, the reality that surrounds them is revealed only by the barbed wire fences, small details in conversation, skies filled with smoke, bursts of sound design, and the piercing score. Friedel as Höss is frightening in his mundanity and Hüller as Hedwig gives the film its twisted humanity. The moments where Hedwig is cruel to her house staff almost feel like a relief - evil we can see even if it’s so much milder than what’s over the walls. In the novel from where this screenplay has been adapted, the lead was named Paul Doll. Glazer, best known for ‘Sexy Beast’ and ‘Under the Skin’, specifically chose to name his main character Rudolf Höss (almost identical to Rudolf Hess) to bring the weight of a well-recorded historical character living in a specific place and time.

Thelma

When 93-year-old Thelma Post gets duped by a phone scammer pretending to be her grandson, she sets out on a treacherous quest across the city to reclaim what was taken from her.


Inspired by a real-life experience of director Josh Margolin's own grandmother, this film puts a clever spin on movies like ‘Mission: Impossible’, shining the spotlight on an elderly grandmother as an unlikely action hero. With infectious humour, Margolin employs the familiar tropes of the action genre in hilarious, age-appropriate ways to tackle aging with agency. In the first leading film role of her 70-year career, June Squibb (‘About Schmidt’, ‘Nebraska’) portrays the strong-willed Thelma with grit and determination, demonstrating that she is more than capable of taking care of business - despite what her daughter Gail (Parker Posey), son-in-law Alan (Clark Gregg), or grandson Danny (Fred Hechinger) might believe. There is no doubting Squibb’s charisma, expertly supported by recently deceased Richard Roundtree (‘Shaft’).

At 20, she married the descendant of a winemaking family. Though their marriage was arranged, a timeless love blossomed between Barbe-Nicole and her poetic, unconventional and erratic husband, François (Tom Sturridge). After her spouse’s untimely death, she is named Veuve (the French word for widow) at age 27, but is determined to protect her family’s legacy and boldly challenge the men - as well as the state - set on stripping her of her vineyards. Determined to advance her husband's theories about soil chemistry, the configuring of vines and revolutionary techniques in bottling, Barbe-Nicole wagers on the next harvest and her own blend of sparkling wine. Challenged by the capriciousness of the seasons, the aggressive competitor Monsieur Moët and the Napoleonic Code of 1804 barring women from running businesses, the elegant and luminous widow must succeed or lose everything. A toast of Veuve Clicquot to all strong women around the world!

A Greyhound of a Girl (U)

A Greyhound of a Girl

In this delicate coming-of-age story, four generations of women are on a midnight road trip like no other.


Mary  (Mia O'Connor) is a cheeky 12-year-old Dublin schoolgirl who is bravely facing the fact that her beloved Granny (Rosaleen Linehan) is dying. When a mysterious young woman (Charlene McKenna) turns up with a message for her Granny, Mary gets pulled into an unlikely adventure. The woman is the ghost of Granny's own mother, who has come to help her daughter say good-bye and guide her safely out of this world. She needs the help of Mary and her mother Scarlett (Sharon Horgan), who embark on a road trip to the past. This is a journey across the barriers of time, where one of the travellers is dead, one of them is dying, one of them is driving and one of them is just starting out. A very charming film.

What Remains (15)

What Remains

At a Scandinavian psychiatric hospital, an uneasy triumvirate of a murderer, a therapist and a policeman all have a vested interest in unearthing the truth, and a deepening co-dependency threatens to consume them all. For lovers of Nordic Noir.


This is the true story of Mads Lake (Gustaf Skarsgård), a restless, elusive and hypersensitive man who confesses to crimes he doesn't remember committing. His psychotherapist Anna Rudebeck (Andrea Riseborough) and the policeman Soren Rank (Stellan Skarsgård) who follows his case push Mads to relive the memories of a tormented past in which violence suffocates every moment. Riseborough is as usual – brilliant, and we are treated to not only Gustav Skarsgård, but to his father Stellan as well. Director Huang is a director and screenwriter, but also and most of all a world-famous artist. After moving to the UK to study art, it is in Europe that his career took off. (In English)

OPEN AIR SCREENING

To live in Barbie Land is to be a perfect being in a perfect place. Unless you have a full-on existential crisis. Or you're a Ken. Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling star in the smartest blockbuster of the summer.


Barbie herself is living her best life in her perfect Barbie world, partying of an evening with Barbies who are political leaders, supreme court judges and Nobel laureates (including Dua Lipa and Issa Rae), and a castrato chorus of beach-bunny Ken clones when suddenly she is assailed with the terrible thought of dying. Weird Barbie tells her she must journey to the real world outside to sort this out and so she and Ken arrive in scuzzy Santa Monica in time-honoured fish-out-of-water style. Greta Gerwig serves up a frothy confection of fashion and fun coupled with searing social critique of the iconic doll in the movie Barbie.

Sleep (15)

Sleep

Jam


A young, expectant wife must figure out how to stop her husband's nightmarish sleepwalking habits before he harms himself or his family. A quality chiller!


Two young and charming expectant parents are happily thriving together in a small urban apartment. A very pregnant Soo-jin (Jung Yu-mi) whole-heartedly supports her husband, Hyun-su (Lee Sun-kyun), as he pursues a moderately successful acting career. One night, she finds him sitting silently at the edge of their bed. He then ominously says, “Someone is inside”, before collapsing into a deep sleep. This is a thriller/horror that will leave you guessing. Like the almost supernatural landscape of slumber, Yu’s brilliant debut is at times mysterious, but thhere is no room for rest, as each scene, each character and each beat of this film are tightly crafted with precision and attention to detail.

DIRTY DANCING (Open Air) (12A)

DIRTY DANCING (Open Air)

Let’s get dressed up in our best 1960’s outfits, to celebrate this 80’s classic. Singing and dancing along to the spectacular 1960’s soundtrack is not only allowed, but fully encouraged! Let’s make this one the most memorable Saturday night of 2024!


‘Dirty Dancing’ represents a lot of what made eighties cinema so great. There’s the obsession with the sixties, Jennifer Grey, Patrick Swayze, a brilliant soundtrack, and of course a story about the guy from the wrong side of the tracks and the upper class girl above him in certain respects.


In the summer of 1963, the innocent Baby (Jennifer Grey) vacations with her parents at a holiday resort. One evening she is drawn to the staff quarters by stirring music, where she meets Johnny (Patrick Swayze), the hotel dance instructor, who is as experienced as Baby is naive. Baby soon becomes Johnny's pupil in dance and love. Following some trials and tribulations,  Johnny returns to put his holiday love centre stage ("nobody puts Baby in a corner") in the iconic final dance sequence. There is no suggestion of a happy ever after; the point is that they have shown each other and us how to live. We defy you not to cry and cheer at the same time.

Journey to Italy (PG)

Journey to Italy

Viaggio in Italia


An unhappily married couple attempts to find direction and insight while vacationing in Naples.


Sharing a passionless existence together, married English couple Alexander (George Sanders) and Katherine Joyce (Ingrid Bergman) travel to Naples after inheriting a villa. On the verge of divorce, with neither one's disposition warming to the other, they decide to spend the rest of the trip separately. Katherine visits museums and historical sites, whereas Alexander goes to Capri to unwind with drinks. However, during the course of their vacation, the Joyces both undergo changes. Ridiculed when it first appeared in 1953, but correctly acclaimed as masterwork a few years later by the Cahiers du Cinéma critics - who became the French New Wave. This film marks the point where neo-realism begins to be rejected and anticipates the modernism of Antonioni's ‘L'Avventura’. (Some subtitles)

STOP MAKING SENSE (Open Air) (PG)

STOP MAKING SENSE (Open Air)

40th Anniversary Remaster: Considered by critics as the greatest concert film of all time, this is the perfect way to end a weekend of open-air screenings. Newly restored in 4K.


Director Jonathan Demme (‘Philadelphia’, ‘The Silence of the Lambs’) captures the frantic energy and artsy groove of Talking Heads in this concert movie shot at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in 1983. The band’s frontman, David Byrne, first appears on an empty stage, armed with only an acoustic guitar and is gradually joined by bassist Tina Weymouth, drummer Chris Frantz, keyboardist Jerry Harrison and a cadre of backup singers as they perform the band’s hits, culminating in an iconic performance featuring Byrne in an enormous suit. 'Stop Making Sense' brilliantly represents Demme’s endless love of musical performance and gleeful urgency.

Special Film & Show Event

In Partnership with Chichester Cabaret Club


A young man deals with two impossible loves: a passionate crush on fellow drag artist Oliver and a distant and cold relationship with his opera diva mother Claire.


Simon (Théodore Pellerin) is a rising star in Montreal's drag scene. Friendly with his fellow drag queens and supported by his sister, who delights in designing increasingly elaborate and beautiful costumes for his act, Simon vibrates with the passion of his adopted artistic community. When he meets Oliver (Félix Maritaud), the alluring new recruit at the club, their irresistible chemistry sparks an electric romance and a fulfilling creative collaboration. When Simon’s mother - a bona fide opera diva - returns after years on the road, he immediately withdraws under the shadow of her influence? Beautifully charting the highs and lows of falling in love and finding oneself in one's art, writer and director Sophie Dupuis's film is a passionate feat of character-driven storytelling and visual extravagance, celebrating the drag world in all its splendour and heartache. A triumph! (Subtitles)

THE TASTE OF THINGS (Film/Food)

Special Film & Food Event
at Little Lightning (Lurgarshall)



Sumptuous, sensual and impossibly handsome - a gorgeous movie about food, love, and sensory pleasure.


In a phenomenological way, “The Taste of Things” captures the joy of variety injected into mere existence: savory and sweet, hot and sour, juice and cream and astringency are not required for pure subsistence, but the rich range of taste we have created in our daily meals says something about human longings not easily put into words. This mystery, like love, is hard to parse.

Mesmerizing


Presented as a tragic love story and a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the mechanics of magic, The Prestige (2006) leads us through the three carefully choreographed movements of all great illusions: the pledge; the turn; the prestige. As we watch, we can almost feel Nolan lovingly unpicking the spellbinding history of cinema itself, inviting us to join him in a danse macabre of smoke and mirrors. We know it’s a trick, but it’s one in which we choose to invest – for the fleeting chance to experience transcendence in the company of others who, for a brief moment, share our waking dream.
