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)

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.

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)

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.

Rome, Open City (12A)

Rome, Open City

Roma Città Aperta

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)

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.

The Bikeriders (15)

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 (15)



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.

Sasquatch Sunset

A year in the life of a unique family. It captures the daily life of the Sasquatch with a level of detail and rigor that is simply unforgettable. A witty and ingenious bigfoot adventure comedy.

In the misty forests of North America, a family of Sasquatches - possibly the last of their enigmatic kind - embark on an absurdist, epic, hilarious and ultimately poignant journey over the course of one year.

This may be an unconventional film, but its message will touch every viewer, who will understand the future of this race on the verge of extinction may well be mirroring our own. Starring Riley Keough and Jesse Eisenberg, this is the greatest Bigfoot story ever told.
