Close Your Eyes (12A)

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)

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.

Evil Does Not Exist (12A)

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)

Drift (15)

Drift

In this powerful, engrossing and poignant emotional journey, a young refugee escapes her war-torn country to a Greek island where she meets a tour guide, and the two become close as they each find hope in the other.


Jacqueline (Cynthia Erivo), a young refugee, lands alone and penniless on a Greek island, where she tries first to survive and then to cope with her past. While gathering her strength, she begins a friendship with a rootless tour-guide (Alia Shawkat) and together they find the resilience to forge ahead. This is an astonishingly confident and deeply moving film, an unarguable career highlight for both Erivo and Shawkat and further evidence that Chen is an important filmmaker, and one to definitely keep your eye on.

Back to Black (15)

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.
