Scarygirl (PG)

Scarygirl

As her world is shrouded in darkness, a young girl must overcome her fears and travel to a mysterious city of light, save her father from a dangerous scientist and prevent the destruction of her planet.


Free spirited and cheerful Arkie (Jillian Nguyen) lives with her adoptive octopus father, Blister (Rob Collins), on a flourishing, colourful peninsula. Together they help regenerate plant life using their magical tentacles, with the help of friendly mechanical bees powered by sunrays. That's until space bandits invade and kidnap Blister - so that an evil scientist, Dr. Maybee (Sam Neill), can use his powers to sap the planet's lifeforce and discover the key to immortality. Can Arkie rescue Blister in time to save her home from devastation? Based on the acclaimed graphic novel, toy and game brand, and featuring a stellar celebrity voice cast (including Tim Minchin), ‘Scarygirl’ is a visual treat.

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.

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.

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)

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’.

Kidnapped (12A)

Kidnapped

Rapito


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).
