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’.

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.

The Fall Guy (12A)

The Fall Guy

A down-and-out stuntman must find the missing star of his ex-girlfriend's blockbuster film in this hilarious and thoughtful tribute to the stunt community.

Colt Seavers (Ryan Gosling) is a stuntman. He gets blown up, shot, crashed, thrown through windows and dropped from the highest of heights, all for our entertainment. And now, fresh off an almost career-ending accident, this working-class hero has to track down the missing Tom Ryder (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), an international superstar with a lethal combo of arrogance and insecurity which Colt regularly stunt doubles for. But that is not all, he must also solve a conspiracy and try to win back the love of his life - Jody (Emily Blunt) - while still doing his day job. What could possibly go right? Gosling and Blunt are terrific together, but the film also gives them both space to shine separately, with the help of a great supporting cast led by a scene-stealing Hannah Waddingham.

Love Lies Bleeding (15)

Love Lies Bleeding

Gym manager Lou falls for Jackie, a bodybuilder who is passing through town en route to a competition in Las Vegas.

1989, New Mexico. Lonely gym manager Lou (Kristen Stewart) spends her free time listening to cassette tapes on quitting smoking. The only thing keeping her in this small town is her sister Beth (Jena Malone), who is frequently beaten by her spineless husband JJ (Dave Franco). Everything changes when Jackie (Katy O’Brian) saunters into the gym: a square-jawed, leotard-wearing goddess heading to Vegas for a bodybuilding championship. This film from director Rose Glass (‘Saint Maud’) is all about the body, what lurks within it, and what physical extremes we’ll push ourselves to for lust, love and freedom. It veers through noir to revenge thriller to pitch-black comedy via moments of magic realism. When it’s not purely thrilling and darkly funny, it’s also just so wonderfully gay. Kristen Stewart with a mullet reading a book called ‘Macho Sluts’ might just be the representation queer women have been waiting for.

Monkey Man (18)

Monkey Man

A young man unleashes a campaign of vengeance against the corrupt leaders who systemically victimize the poor and powerless.

Inspired by the Indian legend of Hanuman, an icon embodying strength and courage, ‘Monkey Man’ stars Dev Patel as Kid, an anonymous young man who ekes out a meagre living in an underground fight club where, night after night, he gets paid for losing fights against the headliners. After years of suppressed rage, Kid discovers a way to infiltrate the enclave of the city's sinister elite. As his childhood trauma boils over, his mysteriously scarred hands unleash an explosive campaign of retribution to settle the score with the men who took everything from him. What starts a tale of a street-smart grief-stricken man living only for revenge slow morphs into the journey of a man who learns to stand for something greater than himself. Dev Patel (‘Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’, ‘Slumdog Millionaire’) who stars, direct, writes and produces this film, is showing signs of being a future leader in British cinema.

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 Caretaker (PG)

The Caretaker

To complement the Chichester Festival Theatre’s June/July production of Harold Pinter’s ‘The Caretaker’, we present this classic 1963 film version which benefits from an outstanding cast.

Naive and lonely Aston (Robert Shaw) rescues the homeless and manipulative Davies (Donald Pleasence), inviting him to stay at his rundown family home. Aston's brother and guardian, Mick (Alan Bates), dislikes the shiftless Davies, but comes to see him as someone to unload the house onto when Aston proposes that Davies become its caretaker. Mick, fed up with his responsibilities, hopes Davies' duties as caretaker will extend to caring for his brother as well. Whilst he is best known for his theatrical work, Pinter was also an accomplished screenwriter; adapting several of his own works as well as many by other writers. In 1963, he wrote the treatment of his own play ‘The Caretaker’ for director Clive Donner. It turned out to be arguably his best. This is a triumph of a film which deserves to be reseen in an auditorium, and discovered by a new generation.

Kidnapped (12A)



The brilliant and revealing story of a Jewish boy is kidnapped from his parents by the church and converted to Catholicism in 1858.

In 1858, in the Jewish quarter of Bologna, Pope Pius IX’s (Paolo Pierobon) soldiers burst into the home of the Mortara family. By order of the cardinal, they have come to take Edgardo, their seven-year-old son, who had been secretly baptized by his nurse as a baby and the papal law is unquestionable: he must receive a Catholic education. Edgardo's parents (Barbara Ronchi and Fausto Russo Alesi) naturally become distraught, and will do anything to get their son back. Supported by public opinion and the international Jewish community, the Mortaras' struggle quickly takes a political dimension. Their will to persevere even into their child’s young adulthood is so inspiring it will both break audiences’ hearts and galvanize them too. The film is blessed with extraordinary cinematography (Francesco Di Giacomo), production design (Andrew Castorina) and editing (Francesca Calvelli, Stefano Mariotti) contributing to a look that is eye-catching from beginning to end. A must-watch. (Subtitles)

Ordinary Angels (12A)

Ordinary Angels

Inspired by the incredible true story of a hairdresser who single-handedly rallies an entire community to help a widowed father save the life of his ill young daughter.

Sharon Steves (Hilary Swank) is a fierce but struggling hairdresser in small-town Kentucky who discovers a renewed sense of purpose when she meets Ed Schmitt (Alan Ritchson), a widower working hard to make ends meet for his two daughters. With his youngest daughter waiting for a liver transplant, Sharon sets her mind to helping the family and will move mountains to do it. What unfolds is the inspiring tale of faith, everyday miracles, and ordinary angels. This is an engrossing fact-based story that packs in some humour, some intense drama and will undoubtedly induce some tears. There is plenty of suspense that comes out of the story naturally, without the need for any manufactured Hollywood thrills. At a time when we all probably need it, this is a film that will make you feel better about the world… and yourself.

The Holdovers (15)

The Holdovers

A cranky history teacher at a remote prep school is forced to remain on campus over the holidays with a troubled student who has no place to go.

From acclaimed director Alexander Payne (‘Sideways’), we follow a the cynical, curmudgeonly classics instructor (Paul Giamatti) at a Massachusetts prep school who is forced to supervise the unfortunate boys unable to return home for the two-week holiday break. Eventually he forms an unlikely bond with one of them - a damaged, brainy troublemaker (Dominic Sessa) - and with the school's head cook, who has just lost a son in Vietnam (Da'Vine Joy Randolph). The snowy cinematography and nostalgic1970s production design are outstanding. This is one of Payne’s best films - very funny, occasionally touching and a sterling example of the bonds that can be forged by an unlikely family. Critics are tipping this as the dark horse of the awards season (96% on Rotten Tomatoes).

Sideways (15)


To complement the return of one of the most loved films of the year – ‘The Holdovers’ – we bring you the first collaboration between director Alexander Payne and actor Paul Giamatti, this year celebrating its 20th anniversary.

Struggling writer and wine enthusiast Miles (Paul Giamatti) takes his engaged friend, Jack (Thomas Haden Church), on a trip to wine country for a last single-guy bonding experience. While Miles wants to relax and enjoy the wine, Jack is in search of a fling before his wedding. Soon Jack is sleeping with Stephanie (Sandra Oh), while her friend Maya (Virginia Madsen) connects with Miles. When Miles lets slip that Jack is getting married, both women are furious, sending the trip into disarray. This is a superb film about human beings who can be flawed and prickly, but if you go a little deeper, you will see beauty. Features a wonderfully written (Oscar and Bafta-winning) script, with two great lead performances, especially Giamatti.

Sometimes I Think About Dying (12A)

Sometimes I Think About Dying

Fran, who likes to think about dying, makes the new guy at work laugh, which leads to dating and more. Now the only thing standing in their way is Fran herself.

Lost on the dreary Oregon coast, Fran (Daisy Ridley) finds solace in her cubicle, listening to the constant hum of officemates and occasionally daydreaming to pass the time. She is ghosting through life, unable to pop her bubble of isolation, when a friendly new coworker, Robert (Dave Merheje), persistently tries to connect with her. Though it goes against every fibre of her being, she may have to give this guy a chance. This is a wry, wistful look at finding meaning in life when caught between social anxiety and the inevitable, interminable need to work, eat and find companionship. Do not let the title put you off, as this great little indie film is brought to life by Ridley’s superb, understated performance.

La Chimera (15)

La Chimera

A clever, ambitious, and funny film from Alice Rohrwacher (‘Corpo Celeste’), which works as an intelligent meditation on our attitudes toward life, love, and death.

Everyone has their own Chimera, something they try to achieve but never manage to find. For the band of tombaroli, thieves of ancient grave goods and archaeological wonders, the Chimera means redemption from work and the dream of easy wealth. For Arthur, the Chimera looks like the woman he lost, Beniamina. To find her, Arthur challenges the invisible, searches everywhere, goes inside the earth - in search of the door to the afterlife of which myths speak. In an adventurous journey between the living and the dead, between forests and cities, between celebrations and solitudes, the intertwined destinies of these characters unfold, all in search of the Chimera. Rohrwacher is in great form, and has continued her trend of adding dashes of magic to tales that explore her country’s past. (Subtitles)

Gaza (15)


Filmed prior to the current conflict in Gaza, this is a beautiful portrait of everyday Gazan citizens, leading meaningful lives beyond the rubble of perennial conflict.

This documentary has real value as a compassionate human document, in showing ordinary people who courageously have to keep going somehow, in the grimmest of conditions, in a world where, as someone puts it, there is a “wall between the people of Gaza and life itself”. A young woman practises the cello, a young man records rap tracks, a theatre director rehearses a performance piece, a fisherman broods over the oppression of his industry – they are not allowed to fish more than three miles out, and the amount of fish that can be caught so close to shore is pitifully meagre. The film wisely avoids any sermonizing or calls to action, and instead serves as an unwavering depiction of cinematic empathy. It’s a sombre film about a people under political siege, and so much more poignant in light of events since 7 October 2023.

The Epic of Everest (U)

The Epic of Everest

The official record of George Mallory and Andrew Irvine's fateful 1924 expedition.

In June 1924 Mallory and Irvine walked to their deaths, disappearing from the view of their fellow explorers on the north-east ridge of Mount Everest. That there was a filmmaker with a customised camera and a telephoto lens on hand to record any of their final steps is impressive, even when viewed from the age of citizen photojournalism. The documentary that Captain John Noel crafted from his hard-won footage is an astonishing movie, one that pays equal tribute to the ambition of Mallory's team and the inhospitality of the mountain. A film that is astonishing in its chill grandeur, and that will linger long in the minds of viewers. We will also be screening the ‘The Great White Silence’ this season which traces the Arctic expedition led by Capt. Robert F. Scott.

Perfect Days

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)

Les Cyclades

An odd-couple comedy that sees two former school-friends reunited in middle-age for a sun-soaked Greek holiday.

Three feisty femmes – Magalie (Laure Calamy), Blandine (Olivia Côte) and Bijou (Kristin Scott Thomas) – play estranged childhood friends who tentatively reunite for a trip to the Greek Islands. Recently divorced, and watching helplessly as her only son leaves home, Blandine is struggling to find her footing again, so when her former best friend Magalie, loud and fearless, suddenly resurfaces, she allows herself to be spontaneous for a change. But as they head off towards their destination, it is soon apparent that Magalie’s very different approach to holidaying – and to life – could lead Blandine to her breaking point… and beyond. An unashamed crowd-pleaser with Kristin Scott Thomas getting in on the act and letting down her hair as a hippie jewellery maker called Bijou. The film emerges as a breezily delightful tale of female camaraderie, intermingled with laughter, tears and great scenery around Amorgos, where Luc Besson’s cult ‘The Big Blue’ was shot. (Subtitles)

Rosalie (15)


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.

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 Beast (15)

The Beast

La Bête

Based on a Henry James novella ‘The Beast in the Jungle’, this is set partly in a near future in which artificial intelligence is in control of lives and human emotions are perceived as a threat.

The year is 2044: artificial intelligence controls a stoic society as humans routinely "erase" their feelings. Hoping to eliminate pain caused by their past-life romances, Gabrielle (Léa Seydoux) continually falls in love with different incarnations of Louis (George MacKay). Set first in Belle Époque-era Paris, Louis is a British man who woos her away from a cold husband, then in early 21st Century LA, he is a disturbed American bent on delivering "retribution." Visually audacious, this is suffused with a haunting sense of mystery, and is punctuated by a career-defining, three-role performance by Seydoux. This is the final element on our short strand on Henry James’ Women on Screen which includes a screening of ‘The Innocents’ and an illustrated talk on the author’s female characters on the big screen.

The Almond and the Seahorse (15)

The Almond and the Seahorse

What happens when you're ambushed by time? An archaeologist and an architect fight to re-imagine a future after traumatic brain injury leaves them adrift from the people they love.

Sarah (Rebel Wilson) is an archaeologist who is trying to juggle professional and personal responsibilities, while her partner Joe (Celyn Jones) slips away a piece at a time. He has trouble retaining memories and often forgets who and where he is – leaving Sarah reliant on various routines which safely control his day.  Toni (Charlotte Gainsbourg) and her partner Gwen (Trine Dyrholm) form the other part of this relationship equation. Gwen suffered a similar injury following a car crash and has been losing pieces of herself for over ten years. Linking both relationships together is Doctor Falmer (Meera Syal), who continues to treat both Gwen and Joe, even though their respective partners seem to be in perpetual denial. This is a life-affirming drama about loved ones dealing with long-term brain injury, with Rebel Wilson (seen in a new light here) and Charlotte Gainsbourg being the highlights.

The Great White Silence (12A)

The Great White Silence

In 1910 the British Antarctic Expedition, led by Capt. Robert F. Scott, embarks from Lyttleton, NZ on a quest to become the first to reach the South Pole.

Part of the thrill watching this extraordinary record of Captain Scott's doomed race to the South Pole is knowing that its original audiences were watching these spectacular sights on film for the first time: killer whales; querulous penguins; fearsome crystal cliffs of ice. Ponting was the expedition's official photographer, and the BFI spent years beautifully restoring his footage – which he edited into this silent feature film in 1924. The intertitles function as narration, often with direct reference to the director and the filmmaking process. They often have a certain dry wit to them too, which keeps things amusing throughout. We will also be screening the ‘The Epic of Everest’ this season which traces the Himalayan expedition of George Mallory and Andrew Irvine.

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.

On the Town (U)

On the Town

To complement Tony Palmer’s documentary and Q&A on Leonard Bernstein (11 May), we present this classic musical that sees three sailors wreak havoc as they search for love during a whirlwind 24-hour leave in New York City.

Fun-loving sailors Gabey (Gene Kelly), Chip (Frank Sinatra) and Ozzie (Jules Munshin) have 24 hours of shore leave in New York City, and they want to make every second count. While Chip hooks up with loudmouth cab driver Brunhilde (Betty Garrett) and Ozzie swoons for prim anthropologist Claire (Ann Miller), Gabey falls in love with an actress he sees in an advertisement, Ivy Smith (Vera-Ellen). Delightful, exhilarating stuff with some unusual - but wonderful - location shooting. New York never looked better. Leonard Bernstein, with lyricists Betty Comden and Adolph Green, provides the music. Features some great songs such as ‘On the Town’ and ‘New York, New York’.

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.

Catching Fire: the Story of Anita Pallenberg (15)

Catching Fire: the Story of Anita Pallenberg

This intimate documentary reveals the story of a fierce rock 'n' roller, actress, muse and mother who rose to prominence in the 1960s and 1970s.

Anita Pallenberg was at many points in her life a newspaper headline: a "rock n' roll goddess," a "voodoo priestess," and an "evil seductress." She was accused of trying to break up the Rolling Stones, among other things. But those who loved her considered her an exciting cultural force, and a loving mother - and innocent of the accusations. Never-seen-before home movies and family photographs explore life with the Rolling Stones and tell a bittersweet tale of both triumph and heartbreak. From ‘Barbarella’ to the Swiss Alps, and the Lower East Side to London, Anita Pallenberg was a creative force ahead of her time. This has a perfect balance of heart, soul and humor that resonates within its core and just makes for some enjoyable and informative viewing.
