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.

Rosalie (15)

Rosalie

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


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

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.

American Fiction (15)

American Fiction

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


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

The Trust Fall (15)

The Trust Fall

Julian Asange


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


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

A House in Jerusalem (12A)

A House in Jerusalem

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


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

Freud's Last Session (15)

Freud's Last Session

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


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

Hard Miles (12A)

Hard Miles

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


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

Hit Man (15)

Hit Man

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


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

Quintessentially Irish (PG)

Quintessentially Irish

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

 

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

Shashvi Shashvi Maq'vali


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


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

The Teachers’ Lounge

Das Lehrerzimmer


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


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

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

Trainspotting (18)

Trainspotting

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


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

The Dead Don't Hurt (15)

The Dead Don't Hurt

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


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

Riddle of Fire (12A)

Riddle of Fire

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


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

There's Still Tomorrow (15)

There's Still Tomorrow

C'è Ancora Domani


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


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

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga (15)

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga

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


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

The athletes trained for an entire year before embarking on the voyage in a high-tech unsinkable rowboat, which they dedicate to the plight of refugees worldwide for whom unimaginable peril, exposure and even death at sea comes to tens of thousands annually. What they couldn’t prepare for is what actually happened. This is a gripping adventure on the high seas, with a forceful finale that will have us all contemplating why many people choose to risk their lives.

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


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

The Bikeriders

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


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

Four Little Adults (18)

Four Little Adults

Neljä Pientä Aikuista


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


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

Sorcery

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


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

Green Border (15)

Green Border

Zielona Granica


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


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

Treasure (12A)

Treasure

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


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

Àma Gloria (12A)

Àma Gloria

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


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

Hounds (15)

Hounds

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


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

Slow (15)

Slow

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


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

Stromboli (PG)

Stromboli

Stromboli (Terra di Dio)


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


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

Rose (cert-tbc)

Rose

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


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

The G (15)

The G

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


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

Kinds of Kindness (cert-tbc)

Kinds of Kindness

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


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