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.

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.

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)

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.

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.

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.
