All of Us Strangers (15)

All of Us Strangers

A screenwriter drawn back to his childhood home enters into a fledgling relationship with a mysterious neighbour. Adapted by Andrew Haigh from a Japanese story, this unusual romance is aching, gorgeously shot and shimmering with sadness.

One night in his near-empty tower block in contemporary London, Adam (Andrew Scott) has a chance encounter with a mysterious neighbour Harry (Paul Mescal), which punctures the rhythm of his everyday life. As a relationship develops between them, Adam is preoccupied with memories of the past and finds himself drawn back to the suburban town where he grew up, and the childhood home where his parents (Claire Foy and Jamie Bell), appear to be living, just as they were on the day they died, 30 years before. Haigh, cinematographer Jamie D. Ramsay (‘Living’), and editor Jonathan Alberts utilize a lot of brilliant techniques to keep Adam slipping between worlds, to never fully resolve whether he is dreaming, is seeing ghosts, or is already one himself. A deeply moving film about loss and loneliness with a quartet of performances that blend together in a breathtaking way.

Wicked Little Letters (15)

Wicked Little Letters

When people in Littlehampton - including conservative local Edith - begin to receive letters full of hilarious profanities, rowdy Irish migrant Rose is charged with the crime. Suspecting that something is amiss, the town's women investigate.

Fiery Rose Gooding (Jessie Buckley) has little in common with the pious Edith Swan (Olivia Colman) aside from them being neighbours in the seaside town of Littlehampton in the 1920's. But one day, Edith starts receiving scandalous letters written with foul language as eccentric as it is obscene, and she immediately accuses Rose of being the poison pen writer behind them. As Rose stands to lose her freedom and the custody of her daughter, and outrageous letters continue to blight the town, police officer Gladys Moss (Anjana Vasan) begins to suspect something is amiss. Together with a group of resourceful women, Gladys endeavours to solve the mystery, liberate Rose, and catch the real culprit. Inspired by a real historical event from the 1920s, the charming seaside town of Littlehampton was a place where everyone knows everyone, and everyone is always on their best Christian behaviour. Filming for this thoroughly enjoyable and very funny film took place principally in Arundel throughout the Autumn of 2022. No doubt we will delight in recognizing our local surrounds on the big screen.

How to Have Sex (15)

How to Have Sex

Awards Pick

This late addition to our Awards season programme recognizes a fearless, and mesmerizing film from start to finish, where three British teenage girls go on a rites-of-passage holiday.

Tara (Mia McKenna-Bruce), Skye (Lara Peake) and Em (Enva Lewis) arrive in Malia, Crete, intent to treat the resort town as their own hedonistic Neverland. A thousand miles from home – and their GCSE results – they’ll drink, “hook up” with boys, and have the best summer of their lives. But this amazing debut from Molly Manning Walker is no female offering of ‘The Inbetweeners’, it is 97% rated on Rotten Tomatoes, and has been hailed as one of the best British films of the year, and recognized as such with three Bafta nominations including Outstanding British Film.

Walker often lets the camera linger on McKenna-Bruce’s face and eyes that convey all the things she can’t find the words for. It is a shattering performance and made all the more devastating because it is so subtle. This coming-of-age story centred on a sexual awakening, in Walker’s hands (as both writer and director), produces results of unusual emotional intensity.

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 Taste of Things (12A)

The Taste of Things

La Passion de Dodin Bouffant

This mouthwatering and sensual exercise in haute cuisine and late-flowering romance is set in 1885 and almost totally within the confines of a rustic kitchen in a chateau. This is our closing film of this year’s French Film Festival.

Tran Anh Hùng, the Vietnamese director, now living in France, of ‘The Scent of the Green Papaya’ based the film on the book ‘The Life and Passion of Dodin-Bouffant, Gourmet’ by Marcel Rouff. Peerless cook Eugénie (Juliette Binoche) has worked for the famous gourmet Dodin (Benoît Magimel) for the last 20 years. As time went by, the practice of gastronomy and mutual admiration turned into a romantic relationship. He realises, however, that while he schmoozes the rich and famous in the dining room, she remains in the kitchen but is clearly hugely responsible for his august reputation. There is talk of marriage, but Eugénie values her independence too much in a relationship that she considers should be of equal parts. Both Binoche and Magimel who were together in life for a considerable time, exude an effortless rapport. Chosen as France’s Oscar contender. Warning: Another film like the recent ‘Delicieux’ that should not be seen on an empty stomach! (Subtitles)

The Enigma of Kasper Hauser (15)

The Enigma of Kasper Hauser

Jeder Für Sich und Gott Gegen Alle

A young man named Kaspar Hauser suddenly appears in Nuremberg in 1828, barely able to talk or walk, and bearing a strange note.

When young German man Kaspar Hauser (a remarkable performance from Bruno S.) is suddenly released from an existence of inexplicable confinement, he is forced into regular society. Barely capable of communicating, Hauser is exploited in a circus sideshow until he is taken under the wing of the kind-hearted Professor Daumer (Walter Ladengast), who slowly helps him acclimatize to conventional life, even teaching him to read and write. Despite his best efforts, however, Hauser may not be able to escape the horrors of his past. Based on the true story of a 16-year-old youth who appeared out of nowhere in a German square in 1828, this is one of Herzog’s most remarkable films and now with a 4K remaster, it is a must see on the big screen. Look out also for ‘Werner Herzog: Radical Dreamer’ and ‘Aguirre, Wrath of God’ also screening in February.

The Promised Land (15)

The Promised Land


The amazing story of Ludvig Kahlen who pursued his lifelong dream: To make the Danish heath bring him wealth and honour.

In 1755, the impoverished Captain Ludvig Kahlen (Mads Mikkelsen) sets out to conquer the harsh, uninhabitable Danish heaths of Jutland with a seemingly impossible goal; to build a colony in the name of the King. In exchange, he will receive a desperately desired Royal name for himself. But the sole ruler of the area, the merciless Frederik de Schinkel (Simon Bennebjerg), arrogantly believes this land belongs to him. When de Schinkel learns that the maid Ann Barbara (Amanda Collin) and her serve husband have escaped for refuge with Kahlen, the privileged and spiteful ruler swears revenge, doing everything in his power to drive the captain away. Kahlen will not be intimated and takes up the unequal battle - not only risking his life, but also the family of outsiders that has formed around him. Shot with the sweep of a historical epic, featuring another superb example of Mads Mikkelsen’s stone-faced magnetism, plus a gallery of settlers, nobles and civil servants who could have stepped out of a Dutch masters painting.

Argylle (12A)


An introverted spy novelist is drawn into the activities of a sinister underground syndicate in this hugely entertaining film by Matthew Vaughn (‘Kingsman’).

Bryce Dallas Howard is Elly Conway, the reclusive author of a series of best-selling espionage novels, whose idea of bliss is a night at home with her computer and her cat, Alfie. But when the plots of Elly's fictional books - which centre on secret agent Argylle and his mission to unravel a global spy syndicate - begin to mirror the covert actions of a real-life spy organization, quiet evenings at home become a thing of the past. Accompanied by Aiden (Sam Rockwell), a cat-allergic spy, Elly (carrying Alfie in her backpack) races across the world to stay one step ahead of the killers as the line between Elly's fictional world and her real one begins to blur. The great cast features Samuel L. Jackson, Dua Lipa, Bryan Cranston and Henry Cavill as Argylle.

Bob Marley: One Love (12A)

Bob Marley: One Love

Celebrates the life and music of legendary reggae musician Bob Marley, an icon who inspired generations through his message of love and unity.

Being a trailblazer, Marley (Kingsley Ben-Adir) was involved in the development of reggae as a musical genre. Jamaican culture became more popular because of his music, which was not just about sounds, but a way of life. Marley preached peace, harmony, and respect and was not afraid to use his music as a platform for his opinions on politics or religion. He has maintained such popularity over the years that you can find his poster hanging in modern-day student rooms, even though he hasn't produced any music since 1980. That is how much of an influence this man has had on music and pop culture. That being the case, the lead actor had to be perfect. Kingsley Ben-Adir was cast as Bob, after an extensive, yearlong and globe-spanning search by the studio.

Housewives and the Homefront in Second World War Films

To mark Women’s History Month this talk will look at the ways in which the women left at home during World War Two were portrayed in the films of the time.

The Second World War was fought not only on the battle-front but in fields, factories and homes. Women who entered the workforce as munitions workers, land girls and members of the women’s armed forces were celebrated in films like ‘The Gentle Sex’ (1943) and ‘Millions Like Us’ (1943). In this talk, featuring a range of clips, cultural historian and author Maggie Andrews will however focus on how the majority of women who were housewives struggling with rationing, evacuees and keeping the home fires burning were portrayed in film. ‘Mrs Miniver’ will be screened to complement this talk on Sun 17 March.

Eureka (15)


A story in three places and times finding parallels between the experience of Indigenous communities in the Old West; South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Reservation in the present day; and finally in the jungles of early-70s Brazil.

Grizzled gunslinger Murphy (Viggo Mortensen) has come to a desolate place in America’s west on a mission to rescue his kidnapped daughter, Molly (Viilbjørk Malling Agger). The film pivots to a house on the Pine Ridge Reservation, home to the Oglala Sioux people where we meet Alaina (Alaina Clifford), a policewoman handling a series of incidents, and her niece Sadie (Sadie Lapointe), a basketball coach looking to flee her increasingly depopulated turf. We finally end up in a remote corner of the Amazon where a small indigenous tribe wrestles with a gold rush threatening to upend their lives. Alonso’s latest is his most ambitious film, siding not with the white strangers in strange lands that had long featured in Alonso’s oeuvre, but with the native communities facing these invaders.

In her quest to uncover this man’s true identity, Rie contacts lawyer Kido (Tsumabuki Satoshi) to find out who he actually was and why he became somebody else.

A beautiful screen poem by Terrence Malick (‘The Tree of Life’) about life in America at the turn of the century, made all the better by this new 4K restoration.

In the early 20th century, Bill (Richard Gere) and Abby (Brooke Adams) are a Chicago couple on the run from the law who pose as brother and sister to find itinerant farm-work in Texas. When an ailing young farmer (Sam Shepard) falls in love with Abby, Bill persuades her to take up with him, and then they can be rich together after he's gone. Of course, the plan goes wrong. This Malick masterpiece with transcendentally beautiful visuals is a fantastically rewarding experience, containing ideas and themes that would re-emerge in his later ‘The Tree of Life’ (2011).

Abel Ferrara’s new film is the story of a priest from a small Italian town who ends up being canonized as a Catholic saint.

World War 1 has ended and Italian soldiers, broken but victorious, are returning to an impoverished village ruled by wealthy landowners. As events surrounding the first free election in Italy threaten to tear the village apart, Padre Pio (Shia LaBeouf) struggles with his own personal demons, ultimately emerging from his spiritual anguish to become one of Catholicism's most venerated figures. ‘Padre Pio’ is a period film with a distinctively modern look, with typically interesting choices made by director Ferrara (‘Bad Lieutenant’, ‘Pasolini’), not known for adhering to cliched cinematic traits.

A janitor in Japan drives between jobs listening to rock music in this absorbing slice-of-life drama which adds a quietly soaring gem to director Wim Wenders' estimable filmography.

Hirayama (Kôji Yakusho) seems utterly content with his simple life as a cleaner of toilets in Tokyo. Outside of his very structured everyday routine he enjoys his passion for music and for books. A series of unexpected encounters gradually reveal more of his past. This is a movie about art, exploring how in the midst of chaos, it’s not labour but the physical objects of beauty that we weave into our lives - paperback novels, cassette tapes of favourite albums, carefully tended bonsai plants, a perfectly framed photograph - that structure and give our days meaning. A deeply moving reflection on finding beauty in the everyday world around us. A poem of extraordinary subtlety and beauty led by a remarkable performance by Yakusho. Not to be missed. (Subtitles)

Shoshana (15)


Inspired by real events, this Michael Winterbottom political thriller is set in 1930s Tel Aviv, and is a smartly crafted and rigorously acted plea for tolerance and compassion.

Thomas Wilkin (Douglas Booth), who works in the anti-terrorist squad of the British Palestine Police force in Tel Aviv, a city ruled by British authorities trying to maintain increasingly difficult peace between the Palestinian and Jewish populations. He is in love with Shoshana Borochov (Irina Starshenbaum), the daughter of Dov Ber Borochov, the Zionist Labour co-founder. As the organization known as Irgun works to push the Brits out of the region through whatever violent means possible, it naturally makes the romance between a Brit and a Jew increasingly difficult. Through Thomas and Shoshana’s relationship the film explores the way extremism and violence drives a wedge between people, forcing them to choose sides. This is a handsomely mounted period piece about a place and time in which friends were forced into becoming enemies, and Winterbottom draws an exceptionally solid performance from his leading lady.

The Settlers

Los Colonos

This must-see Chilean film was the worthy winner of the Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes 2023.

Chile, 1901. Three horsemen embark on an expedition, tasked with securing a wealthy landowner's vast property. Accompanying a reckless British lieutenant (Sam Spruell) and an American mercenary (Mark Stanley) is mestizo (half European, half native American) marksman Segundo (Camilo Arancibia), who comes to realize their true mission is to violently "remove" the indigenous population. This ‘Western’ is shot with an intense beauty leaving the viewer with a stronger understanding of the message delivered by the director – amazingly, his first feature. It is a striking but bleak portrayal of colonization and genocide, but there is integrity to its brutality, and an important point waiting in its curveball of a final act.

One Life (12A)

One Life

Will this be the role that elevates Anthony Hopkins to the lofty heights of three-time Oscar winners?

Nicholas Winton was a well-to-do stockbroker who, at the start of the Second World War, is so horrified by unfolding events that he heads off to Prague to do something, anything, he can to help the terrified young refugees fleeing Hitler. Everyone thinks he is crazy – including his mother, played by Helena Bonham-Carter. But he somehow manages to organise visa and trains to get hundreds of them to safety in the UK; what has since become known as the Kindertransport. Winton was sometimes called the British Oskar Schindler, and the parallels go beyond their acts of extreme kindness: both men were completely consumed by the task they undertook and never able to focus on the people that they did save, only those that they failed to save. The wonderful Lena Olin plays Nicholas’ wife, Johnny Flynn is great as the younger Winton, but this is unquestionably Hopkins’ film.

Driving Mum (12A)

Driving Mum

Á Ferð Með Mömmu

In this Nordic black comedy, the death of a man’s mother leads him on an Icelandic road trip to fulfil her last wish. A bizarre trip that will be the gamechanger he never dreamt of.

When Jon's (Thröstur Leó Gunnarsson) domineering and possessive mother (Kristbjörg Kjeld) passes away, he sets out on a journey across Iceland to honour her last wish, to be buried in her hometown. Along with his beloved and loyal (scene-stealing) dog, they meet some unique locals along the way, making personal discoveries, questioning his entire life and having existential conversations with his deceased mother. There’s a heightened sense of the absurd in Odsson’s ‘Driving Mum’, which takes us on a beautiful Icelandic odyssey in crisply shot monochrome, perfectly accompanied by a wonderful score. If you liked ‘Fallen Leaves’ (Kaurismäki) earlier this year, then you will love this.

Cabrini (15)


As part of Women’s History Month, we are delighted to present this powerful epic of Francesca Cabrini, an Italian immigrant who arrives in New York City in 1889. One woman defying impossible odds in a world dominated by men.

On her arrival to New York, Cabrini (Cristiana Dell’Anna) is greeted by disease, crime, and impoverished children, so she sets off on a daring mission to convince the hostile mayor to secure housing and healthcare for society's most vulnerable. She arrived with nothing, with broken English and poor health – a woman at a time when women had no voice, an Italian at a time when Italians were considered the lowest of the low – and went on to build one of the greatest business empires the world had ever known. You may remember award-winning director Alejandro Monteverde from his film ‘Sound of Freedom’, and the film also stars John Lithgow and David Morse.

Dune: Part Two (12A)

Dune: Part Two

The film explores the mythic journey of Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) as he unites with Chani (Zendaya) and the Fremen while on a warpath of revenge against the conspirators who destroyed his family.

Facing a choice between the love of his life and the fate of the known universe, he endeavours to prevent a terrible future only he can foresee. Director Denis Villeneuve says: “For me, this film is much better than ‘Part One,' “There’s something more alive in it. There’s a relationship to the characters. I was trying to reach for an intensity and a quality of emotions.” The incredible cast also includes Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Austin Butler, Léa Seydoux, Christopher Walken, Florence Pugh, Stellan Skarsgård and Charlotte Rampling.

Caligula: The Ultimate Cut (18)

Caligula: The Ultimate Cut

To kick off our new monthly Cult of Cinema strand, we bring you a reimagining of the ‘cultiest’ of all cult films. 44 years after the historical epic ‘Caligula’, producer Thomas Negovan has realized the creators' original vision with this version including mainly never-before-seen footage.

Shadowed by the murder of his entire family, the young, wary Caligula (Malcolm McDowell) eliminates his devious adoptive grandfather (Peter O'Toole) and seizes control of the declining Roman Empire, descending into a spiral of depravity, destruction, and madness. A treatise on the corrupting influence of power, this extensive reconstruction restores the complete performances of McDowell and Helen Mirren as the promiscuous 'Caesonia', from an unprecedented amount of never-before-seen footage. Mirren was cut to only 20 minutes on screen in the original version but has 60 minutes here. Tinto Brass was recruited for the project with a script by Gore Vidall. The script was eventually rewritten from scratch and by the end of the chaotic production, the film had doubled in budget and Brass was locked out of the edit by Bob Guccione. Several crew understandably asked to have their names removed from the film and a legend was then born. This is now a much better film than the original release, but do keep in mind that it is still very much an 18-certificate film.

Copa 71 (15)

Copa 71

Told by the pioneering women who participated, this is the extraordinary story of the 1971 Women's Football World Cup, a tournament witnessed by record crowds that has been written out of sporting history - until now. Screening to celebrate International Women’s Day.

The goal of ‘Copa 71,’ directed by Rachel Ramsay and James Erskine and executive produced by Serena and Venus Williams, is to make sure more people do know of this event, which drew the largest attendance ever for a women’s sporting event, more than 110,000 for a match in Mexico City’s Azteca Stadium. The film is filled with female empowerment anthems of the day, including Kiki Dee’s ‘I’ve Got the Music in Me’ and Nancy Sinatra’s ‘These Boots Are Made for Walking.’ You can look at ‘Copa 71’ as the ‘Summer of Soul’ of women’s sport – the chronicle of a big event that took place more than 50 years ago and had been lost to time, making use of copious footage that has remained unseen for most of that period. You will find yourself asking - “Why didn’t I know of this?” (Some subtitles)

The New Boy (15)

The New Boy

Cate Blanchett produces and stars in this new film by Australian First Nation director Warwick Thornton (‘Sweet Country’), which sees a nine-year-old Australian Aboriginal orphan boy arrive in the dead of night at a remote monastery run by a renegade nun.

Blanchett plays the head of a troubled monastery in the outback for abandoned children (some of whom weren't actually "abandoned" but kidnapped). When a new boy arrives – magnificently played by first-time actor Aswan Reid - Sister Eileen’s concept of faith is challenges when he starts showing signs of miraculous powers. Thornton tells a tale from a dark chapter of his country’s history, when Australia kidnapped Aboriginal children and did everything to destroy their heritage and identity. He has drawn on his own unhappy experiences as a Kaytetye boy from Alice Springs, from where he was sent at 11 to a Western Australian boarding school run by Benedictine monks. The film is gorgeous throughout, and Thornton shoots the landscapes of Australia as well as anyone, and a typically excellent score from Nick Cave and Warren Ellis helps make this a consistently interesting experience.

Red Island (15)

Red Island

L'Île Rouge

This visually exquisite, tender film about a boy growing up in a military air base on a former colony is a wonderful watch. From Robin Campillo who gave us the brilliant ‘120 beats per minute' (2017).

At the beginning of the 1970s in Madagascar, a few armed forces and their families live in one of the last French military bases abroad, a relic of the ending French colonial empire. Influenced by his reading of the intrepid comic book heroine Fantômette, ten-year-old Thomas (Charlie Vauselle) sweeps with a curious glance what surrounds him. Beneath the carefree expatriate life, his eyes are gradually opening to another reality. Frequently poignant and always visually spectacular, Campilo’s film is a masterful portrayal of colonialism through a child’s eyes. (Subtitles)

Showing Up (15)

Showing Up

A sculptor preparing to open a new show must balance her creative life with the daily dramas of family and friends, in Kelly Reichardt's vibrant and captivatingly funny portrait of art and craft.

Lizzy (Michelle Williams) is not a famous artist; she is a sculptor who makes ceramic figures of women in her garage studio. She tries to finish her pieces before an upcoming gallery show, but life often intrudes on her art. She also works for her mother Jean (Maryann Plunkett) at a Portland art college giving her access to the kiln, run by the ever-cheerful Eric (André Benjamin). This is a funny and incisive drama about the artist's life - it illuminates the numbing grind of real life when you are trying to make art - reuniting Reichardt and Williams (‘Wendy and Lucy,’ ‘Meeks’ Cutoff,’ ‘Certain Women’) to absorbing effect. Reichardt is a director who has not made a bad movie in 30 years.

A deeply layered and moving drama about past trauma and finding connection when you least expect it.

Sylvia (Jessica Chastain) is a social worker who leads a simple and structured life: her daughter, her job, her AA meetings. This is blown open when Saul (Peter Sarsgaard) follows her home from their high school reunion, and this surprise encounter profoundly impacts both of them as they open the door to the past. Chastain and Sarsgaard glow as wounded souls making a connection in a film where characters make questionable and sometimes troubling choices, and yet we understand why they do the things they do, and root fiercely for things to work between them.

Migration (PG)


Take flight into the thrill of the unknown with a funny, feathered family vacation like no other in this action-packed original comedy.

A family of mallards who head south for the winter from New England, are guided to Jamaica by a homesick scarlet macaw given a fruity Caribbean accent by Keegan-Michael Key. Mallard father Mack (Kumail Nanjiani), is a risk-averse fellow, only persuaded to spread his wings by his more adventurous wife Pam (Elizabeth Banks) and their kids Dax (Caspar Jennings) and Gwen (Tresi Gazal). His anxiety seems justified when a villainous New York chef tries to turn them all into duck a l'orange, and then pursues them to Florida where, reminiscent of the recent ‘Chicken Run’ sequel, they find that a deluxe holiday home for ducks is pampering them only for the slaughterhouse. The excellent voice cast also includes Danny DeVito, Awkwafina and David Mitchell. It's all extremely jaunty and colourful, with some great flights of fancy and smart one-liners to also keep the adults happy.

Inside Llewyn Davis (15)

Inside Llewyn Davis

To complement Ethan Coen’s new release ‘Drive-Away Dolls’ and our accompanying Coen brothers’ talk, we present this very much under-appreciated Coen work, which follows a week in the life of a young singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961.

In 1961 New York City, folk singer Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) is at a crossroads. Guitar in hand, he struggles against seemingly insurmountable obstacles to make a name for himself in the music world, but so far, success remains elusive. Relying on the kindness of both friends and strangers, Llewyn embarks on an odyssey that takes him from the streets of Greenwich Village to a Chicago club, where awaits a music mogul who could give him the big break that he desperately needs. Smart, funny and profoundly melancholy, ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ finds the Coen brothers in fine form. Also stars Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, F. Murray Abraham and Justin Timberlake.

Frida (15)


An intimately raw and magical journey through the life, mind and heart of iconic artist Frida Kahlo. Told through her own words for the very first time.

Using only archival footage, photos and writings - with a through-line of the narrative directly from Kahlo’s own verse and the voices of those who loved her - this documentary crafts a truly full picture of the painter’s journey, weaving her paintings into the hallmarks of her life. This is the first time Kahlo’s life is narrated by her own writing and the project does an incredible job of combining all of its visual and auditory elements to shape the narrative of the artist’s world. The stories and emotions behind many of Kahlo’s works come clear into view and every thought behind the art is laid bare through the definitive intentions of the artist. Kahlo’s works are even brought vividly to life by a beautifully lyrical animation inspired by her unforgettable art. (Subtitles)

Robot Dreams

With a perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes (film critics’ website), this beautiful tale of friendship and love in the hand-drawn streets of vintage New York is a wondrous dialogue-free film that will warm the hearts of adults and kids alike.

Dog lives in Manhattan where he is tired of being alone, so one day he decides to build himself a robot, a companion. Their friendship blossoms, and the unlikely pair begin to explore their surroundings until they become inseparable - to the rhythm of 1980's New York City. But a beach trip changes everything for the happy duo. After a delightful swim on a hot summer’s day, the unsuspecting Robot rusts away, with his helpless buddy unable to move him despite his best efforts. What follows is a mournful and heartbreaking chapter, to a level scarcely achieved in live action films, with Pablo Berger ultimately creating a film that will stay with the viewer for ages.

City of God (18)

City of God

★★★★★ The Guardian

Classics Restored & Reissued

This electrifying, visceral picture is part tender coming-of-age film and part favela gang epic, a movie with dials cranked up to eleven – cinematography; music and sound; action; colour; heart; and incredible technical prowess.

In the poverty-stricken favelas (slums) of Rio de Janeiro in the 1970s, two young men choose different paths. Rocket (Phellipe Haagensen) is a budding photographer who documents the increasing drug-related violence of his neighbourhood. José "Zé" Pequeno (Douglas Silva) is an ambitious drug dealer who uses Rocket and his photos as a way to increase his fame as a turf war erupts with his rival, "Knockout Ned" (Leandro Firmino da Hora).  What makes ‘City of God’ so breathtaking is director Meirelles' passion for these people - he gives us the colour, the music and the humour, and brings out extraordinary performances from all, including many non-actors.

“I’ve seen this film many times, and will be counting the days until I see it once again, this time on the New Park big screen. When pushed, this is the film I choose as my favourite of all time”. Walter Francisco – Head of Programming.

The result of eight years of reflection, consideration and work is the 2020 publication of her Pulitzer prize-winner.

Baltimore (15)


Based on the life of Rose Dugdale, a former debutante who rebelled against her wealthy upbringing, becoming a volunteer in the militant Irish republican organisation, the Provisional Irish Republican Army.

‘Baltimore’ - whose title refers to a village in County Cork, Ireland - begins in the midst of a heist, but not just any heist but the largest art theft in history, pulled off by four IRA members led by a onetime debutante, Rose Dugdale (Imogen Poots). She is the focus of this concise and intimate film, and is played with a compelling mix of ferocity, focus and conscience by Poots. A percussive, churning and sometimes thunderous score heightens the feelings of determination and apprehension that course through the movie’s events, and clever cinematography uses split screens at key junctures to underscore the intense logistical considerations of Rose’s mission.

In this captivating and engrossing film, one man arrives in Paris to join the Foreign Legion, whilst another struggles against the oil companies threatening his village. If you enjoyed Claire Denis’ ‘Beau Travail’ (1999), you will love this.

After a painful journey through Europe, Belarusian Alex (Franz Rogowski) joins the Foreign Legion in France and clings to a confused hope of a European identity. Nigerian Jomo (Morr Ndiaye), fights for the survival and durability of his people in the Niger Delta and is ready to die to defend his ideas. These two young people who are sacrificed and smashed together will, against all odds, meet and their destinies will merge to continue across borders, bodies, life and death. Visually stylish and alluring in a dreamlike way, ‘Disco Boy’ is an incredible filmmaking debut, and an unpredictable one as well, in which Rogowski continues to prove he’s one of this generation’s most intriguing actors.

Monster (12A)



Hirokazu Kore-eda’s new feature sees a mother demanding answers from a teacher when her son begins acting strangely. A typically superb film from the Japanese auteur.

Young widow Saori (Sakura Ando) has begun to notice some odd behaviour in her fifth-grade son, Minato (Soia Kurokawa): impulsive haircuts, a trashed bedroom, pronounced moodiness, missing footwear. When Minato comes home with tales of being hit by his teacher, Saori visits his school to confront the principal (Yūko Tanaka), but Minato is not the only one acting oddly here. Structured after the perspective-shifting classic ‘Rashomon’, we see events from the perspective of various protagonists, all referred to in some way as the titular ‘monster’, and all resetting around one central sparking point. Kore-eda, no stranger to working with children, has captured an indelible depiction of early adolescence, with Kurokawa and Hinata Hiiragi (his classmate) giving two profoundly genuine performances. This is quality cinema.

Sarah and Tom, a successful London professional couple, panic after their friend Jessica kills herself in their garden just as they are on the brink of selling the house for some urgently-needed cash.

Their situation takes a terrifying nosedive with the sudden death of their uninvited guest, Jessica (Indira Varma). Panicking that the buyer will pull out of the sale if they find out what happened, Sarah (Shirley Henderson) and Tom (Alan Tudyk) persuade their best friends, Richard (Rufus Sewell) and Beth (Olivia Williams), to help them relocate Jessica’s body. Faced with the moral dilemma of their lives, they make a series of choices that could be either their salvation or their destruction.

Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto leaves his fans with a moving send-off. All the better here with stunning cinema sound.

On 28 Mar 2023, legendary composer Ryuichi Sakamoto passed away after his struggle against cancer. In the years leading up to his death, Sakamoto could no longer perform live. Single concerts, not to mention sprawling global tours, were too taxing. Despite this, in late 2022, Sakamoto mustered all of his energy to leave the world with one final performance: a concert film, featuring just him and his piano. This film lets Sakamoto deliver an elegy, and in the process, an autobiography of his creative journey, as captured through the precision and poetry of director Neo Sora’s camera.

El Sur

aka: The South

Ten years after ‘The Spirit of the Beehive’, Erice’s second feature was released to huge critical acclaim. A film about a woman who reflects on her childhood relationship with her father, attempting to understand the depths of his despair and the truth of his myths.

Estrella Arenas (Icíar Bollaín), a rural Spanish 15-year-old with a rich imagination, dreams of her mysterious father Agustín (Omero Antonutti), a man who in recent years has drifted away from her. Estrella struggles to piece together Agustín's secret history and recalls her family's sudden unexplained move from Seville, Spain, to the northern countryside in her youth. Estrella decides to return alone to the South, a place warped by years of her father's hazy and nostalgic recollections. Originally planned to be a film of two equal parts – one in the south and one in the north – but after seeing how perfect the first half was, it was decided that this would be the final version of the film. Erice confirms his mastery of mood, ambivalence, and the art of evoking the mysteries rather than the sharp lines of character. Every frame is calculated to perfection and loaded with depth and passion.

Shoplifters (15)


To accompany Hirokazu Kore-eda’s new feature ‘Monster’ and our associated illustrated talk on the director, we present his wonderful 2018 Cannes Palme D’Or winner.

On the margins of Tokyo, a dysfunctional band of outsiders is united by fierce loyalty and a penchant for petty theft. Five people inhabit the cramped space under Granny Hatsue’s (Kirin Kiki) roof, none of them related by blood. Yet, each trust and accept one another more than most genetic relations do. When the young ‘son’ is  arrested, secrets are exposed that upend their tenuous, below-the-radar existence. Kore-eda fills the film with grace notes, humour and fine observations, cleverly circling and filling out each character. Understated yet ultimately deeply affecting, ‘Shoplifters’ adds another powerful chapter to director Kore-eda's richly humanistic filmography.

Naked Lunch (18)

Naked Lunch

In association with the Oxmarket Gallery’s ‘Burn Burn Burn: the Beats light up the Ox’ exhibition (2-14 Apr), and as a perfect selection for our second ‘Cult of Cinema’ presentation, we bring you David Cronenberg’s legendary take on William S. Burrough’s “unfilmable” novel.

Blank-faced bug killer Bill Lee (Peter Weller) and his dead-eyed wife, Joan (Judy Davis), like to get high on Bill's pest poisons while lounging with Beat poet pals. After meeting the devilish Dr. Benway (Roy Scheider), Bill gets a drug made from a centipede. Upon indulging, he accidentally kills Joan, takes orders from his typewriter-turned-cockroach, ends up in a constantly mutating Mediterranean city and learns that his hip friends have published his work - which he doesn't remember writing. Cronenberg's stylistically ambitious interpretation of William S. Burroughs's twisted genius may even inspire you to pick up the book. Wild cinema from even wilder source material.

Evil Does Not Exist (cert-tbc)

Evil Does Not Exist

Aku Wa Sonzai Shinai

This is the new feature – an eco parable - from the director of ‘Drive My Car’, which won the 2021 Best Foreign Film Bafta and Oscar.

Takumi (Hitoshi Omika) and his daughter Hana (Rio Nishikawa) live in Mizubiki Village, close to Tokyo. Like generations before them, they live a modest life according to the cycles and order of nature. One day, the village inhabitants become aware of a plan to build a glamping site near Takumi's house, offering city residents a comfortable “escape” to nature. When two company representatives from Tokyo arrive in the village to hold a meeting, it becomes clear that the project will have a negative impact on the local water supply, causing unrest. The agency's mismatched intentions endanger both the ecological balance of the nature plateau and their way of life, with an aftermath that affects Takumi's life deeply. This ecological parable stands on the battle lines between modern civilization and the natural world, offering a perspective that's as quietly measured as it is entrancing. (Subtitles)

Close Your Eyes (15)

Close Your Eyes

Cerrar Los Ojos

A near-masterpiece for director Víctor Erice, this film ends his long gap between films with a moving meditation on memory, identity and cinema itself.

A famous Spanish actor, Julio Arenas, disappears during the filming of a movie. Although his body is never found, the police conclude that he has suffered an accident at the edge of a cliff. Many years later, the mystery is brought up once more by a TV program that tries to evoke the actor, offering as a scoop, images of the last scenes in which he participated, shot by his close friend, director Miguel Garay (Manolo Solo). This is Erice’s first feature in 31 years - and only his fourth overall - arriving as something between a desert oasis and a mirage: a shimmery, nourishing culmination of ideas and ellipses in a career so elusive as to have taken on a mythic quality, to the point that his latest feels almost dreamed into being. Nominated for an amazing 11 Goya Awards – the Spanish film industry’s highest accolade. (Subtitles)

Poor Things (18)

Poor Things

Yorgos Lanthimos has created an incredible tale of the fantastical evolution of Bella Baxter, a young woman brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter.

Under Baxter's (Willem Dafoe) protection, Bella (Emma Stone in a career defining performance) is eager to learn. Hungry for the worldliness she is lacking, Bella runs off with Duncan Wedderburn (Mark Ruffalo), a slick and debauched lawyer, on a whirlwind adventure across the continents. Free from the prejudices of her times, Bella grows steadfast in her purpose to stand for equality and liberation. ‘Poor Things’ is an awe-striking visual feast that satisfies the eyes, tantalizes the loins, and feeds the soul. Both incredibly funny and disturbing, sometimes in the same beat, it will surely be knocking on the door of awards voters in a host of categories. Lanthimos (‘Dogtooth’, ‘Killing of a Sacred Dear’, The Favourite’) continues to surprise and astound with every film. (Some subtitles)

We are delighted to present this unique opportunity to see one of the most entertaining films of all time on the big screen... and in a new 4K restoration too! Winner of the Oscars for Best Picture, Director, Actor, Actress and Screenplay.

In Frank Capra's acclaimed romantic comedy, spoiled heiress Ellie Andrews (Claudette Colbert) impetuously marries the scheming King Westley (Jameson Thomas), leading her tycoon father (Walter Connolly) to spirit her away on his yacht. After jumping ship, Ellie falls in with cynical newspaper reporter Peter Warne (Clark Gable), who offers to help her reunite with her new husband in exchange for an exclusive story. But during their travels, the reporter finds himself falling for the feisty young heiress. Colbert and Gable make the perfect comedic duo, and together with inspired direction from Capra, make this film the perfect example of that well-known phrase – “movie magic”.

Back to Black (cert-tbc)

Back to Black

The extraordinary story of Amy Winehouse's early rise to fame and the making of her groundbreaking album, ‘Back to Black’.

Told from Amy's (Marisa Abela) perspective and inspired by her deeply personal lyrics, the film follows the remarkable woman behind the phenomenon and the tumultuous relationship at the centre of one of the most legendary albums of all time. Winehouse was touted as “the next best thing” with the voice of a Blues’ angel, but left us way too soon at the age of 27, leaving not only a huge hole in her family’s life, but a chasm in the world’s musical sphere. The perfectly chosen support cast includes Jack O'Connell as Amy’s husband Blake Fielder-Civil, plus Eddie Marsan and Lesley Manville as the singer’s parents, Mitch and Cynthia. Directed by Sam Taylor Johnson, who did an outstanding job on John Lenon’s story in 2009’s ‘Nowhere Boy’. Screenplay is by Matt Greenhalgh also known for ‘Nowhere Boy’ as well as the Joy Division biopic ‘Control’.

Io Capitano (15)

Io Capitano

A Homeric fairy tale that tells the adventurous journey of two young boys, Seydou and Moussa, who leave Dakar to reach Europe.

In this acclaimed film which won top directing and acting prizes at the Venice Film Festival, writer-director Garrone presents a "reverse shot" of the immigration experience while unfurling an epic, cinematographically magnificent odyssey from West Africa to Italy. The story is told through the mind’s eye and experiences of two Senegalese teenagers living in Dakar who yearn for a brighter future in Europe. Yet between their dreams and reality lies a treacherous journey through a labyrinth of checkpoints, the scorched Saharan desert, a fetid North African prison and the vast waters of the Mediterranean where thousands have died packed inside vessels barely fit for passage.

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.

The Teachers’ Lounge (12A)

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.

Mr. Deeds Goes to Town

To complement our talk on Frank Capra and the remastered ‘It Happened One Night’, we also present one of Capra’s best and most loved films.

Longfellow Deeds (Gary Cooper), a resident of small-town Vermont, leads a simple life until he inherits a vast fortune from a late uncle. Soon, unscrupulous lawyer John Cedar (Douglas Dumbrille) brings Deeds to New York City, where the unassuming heir is the object of much media attention. When wily reporter Babe Bennett (Jean Arthur) gains the trust and affection of Deeds, she uses her position to publish condescending articles about him - but are her feelings for him really that shallow? With snappy lines and stellar performances, this is an undisputed Capra classic.

The Innocents. (12A)

The Innocents.

Creepily atmospheric, this is a stylishly crafted, chilling British ghost tale with Deborah Kerr at her finest. Remastered in stunning 4K.

Based on the Henry James story ‘The Turn of the Screw,’ this a psychological thriller about Miss Giddens (the glorious Kerr) who takes a governess job in a Victorian home for two rich orphans, ten-year-old Miles (Martin Stephens) and his younger sister Flora (Pamela Franklin). She begins to see what she believes are ghosts and suspects the children's bizarre behaviour is the result of supernatural powers. The children’s previous nanny and her manservant lover both met with mysterious deaths. This is a film that creeps slowly up on the viewer: a drip-feed of fear fed by creaks, eerie children and shadowy demonic figures on the periphery of this world and the next. Psychological horrors have imitated its ambiguous ending ever since. Few have pulled it off half as creepily, and Martin Scorsese put this in his top ten list of nerve-jangling films.
