Joy

Rating 12A I Running Time 124 mins I USA I 2016

Directed by David O. Russell Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper

The rags-to-riches saga of Joy Mangano, the entrepreneur and inventor who gave the

world the Miracle Mop, Joy is the latest in a series of brilliant collaborations between Oscar

winner Jennifer Lawrence and director David O. Russell. A dreamy, artfully handled film

which matches the triumph and ingenuity and of its somewhat unlikely source material.

Sat 19 March 3pm

Le Mepris

Rating 15 I Running Time 103 mins I France/Italy I 1963 I Subtitled

Directed by Jean-Luc Godard Starring Brigitte Bardot, Michel Piccoli, Jack Palance

First released in 1963, Jean-Luc Godard’s Le Mepris is one of the undisputed masterpieces

of French cinema. Godard’s only big-budget film with a major star – Brigitte Bardot, in her

paparazzi-chased prime – Le Mepris is the tale of the increasingly estranged wife of a

scriptwriter (Piccoli) trying to bring Ulysses to the screen.

Sat 19 March 7.30pm

23 years after bursting on to our screens with Reservoir Dogs, Quentin Tarantino has

magnificent ensemble cast of bounty hunters trying to find shelter during a blizzard, only

to find themselves pulled further into a plot of betrayal and deception.

A War

Rating 15 I Running Time 115 mins I Denmark I 2015 I Subtitled

Directed by Tobias Lindholm Starring Pilou Asbæk, Tuva Novotny, Dar Salim, Søren Malling

The powerful story of a Danish army officer on trial, A War is an engrossing and

impeccably sensitive Afghanistan War drama. Switching between the chaos of conflict

and the suffocating stillness of post-war trial, A War is a riveting, complex film that asks

one simple question: what do you do when there’s no right answer?

All Hard of Hearing (HOH) screenings have subtitles on screen.

Directed by Lenny Abrahamson Starring Brie Larson, Jacob Tremblay, Sean Bridgers

The ostensibly gruesome tale of a young woman and her son who have been kidnapped

and imprisoned for years by a psychotic abuser, Room is an unexpectedly life-affirming

parable of parenthood clothed in a modern-day horror story. Brie Larson gives an

astounding performance in an intelligent and emotionally engaging film about the adult world.

Thu 24 March 11am/7.30pm

The Revenant

Rating 15 I Running Time 156 mins I USA I 2016

Directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy

From the director of last year’s extraordinary Birdman, The Revenant is an immersive and

on a desperate journey through nature driven only by his sheer will to survive.

Fri 25 March (HOH) 11am/7.30pm

Wed 30 March 7.30pm

Spotlight

Directed by Thomas McCarthy Starring Rachael McAdams, Liev Schreiber, Mark Ruffalo

A movie of clarity and force, Spotlight is a drama about the Boston Globe’s 2002 campaign

to investigate a church cover-up of child abuse by Catholic priests. Director Thomas

flair for seeing beyond the headlines in a powerfully affecting piece of filmmaking.


Thu 31 March (HOH) 11am/7.30pm

The Danish Girl

Rating 15 I Running Time 120 mins I UK/USA/Bel/Den/Ger I 2016

Directed by Tom Hooper Starring Eddie Redmayne, Alicia Vikander, Amber Heard

Last seen winning an Oscar for his note-perfect Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything,

Eddie Redmayne excels once again as Lili Elbe, one of the first people to undergo sex

reassignment surgery. It’s not just about Redmayne though; Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl

is a superlative film, one of transformation and transcendence.

Fri 1 April 11am/7.30pm

Dad’s Army

Rating PG I Running Time 100 mins I UK I 2016

Directed by Oliver Parker Starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Bill Nighy, Toby Jones, Tom Courtenay

A revival of the legendary, much-loved TV comedy which ran from 1968 to 1977, Dad’s Army

is driven by an exceptional ensemble cast, from a deliciously flirty Catherine Zeta Jones to Bill

Nighy at his most Bill Nighy-ish, and a script full of razor-sharp one-liners. Don’t panic!

Sat 2 April 3pm

Goosebumps

Rating PG I Running Time 103 mins I USA/Australia I 2016

Directed by Rob Letterman Starring Jack Black, Amy Ryan, Dylan Minnette

Based on RL Stine’s incredibly successful series of books – which have sold upwards of 350

million copies – Goosebumps is a post-modern twist on the children’s horror movie. Jack Black

plays Stine, always hilarious even whilst meeting some of the more gruesome creations from

his novels in the real world.

Sat 2 April 7.30pm

The Big Short

Rating 15 I Running Time 130 mins I USA I 2016

Directed by Adam McKay Starring Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling

Anchorman director Adam McKay’s riotously entertaining portrait of the speculators who

profited from the 2008 financial collapse, The Big Short is the blackest of comedies about

gluttony, incompetence and barefaced corruption. A far cry from Wall Street, this chaos and

disorder-filled financial sector is the perfect backdrop for an utterly engrossing and bitingly

satirical treatise on the pitfalls of greed.

Sun 3 April 3pm

Whisky Galore

Rating U I Running Time 82 mins I UK I 1949

Directed by Alexander Mackendrick Starring Basil Radford, Joan Greenwood, Catherine Lacey

One of the greatest Ealing comedies, Whisky Galore is a classic about Scottish islanders

attempting to liberate a boatload of alcohol. Beautifully shot on location in documentary style

on the isle of Barra, it's a brilliantly funny and sharp ensemble caper that has lost none of its

sparkle.

Janis: Little Girl Blue

Rating 15 I Running Time 104 mins I USA I 2016

Directed by Amy J. Berg Starring Janis Joplin, Cat Power (voice), Peter Albin, Sam Andrew

An absorbing and loving ode to late blues-rock goddess Janis Joplin, Little Girl Blue is a

fitting tribute to a maverick and short-lived talent. Mixing archive footage with excavated

letters written by Joplin to friends, lovers and family members, this is a fresh portrait

revealing the vulnerable heart of a tough and powerful innovator.

American screenwriter and novelist Dalton Trumbo who became one of the Hollywood Ten

in 1947, blacklisted for refusing to testify during investigations of communist influences in

Hollywood. The first retelling of his extraordinary story, Trumbo is a winning, lively film,

Thu 21 April 11am

The Lavender Hill Mob

Rating U I Running Time 81 mins I UK I 1951

Directed by Charles Crichton Starring Alec Guinness, Stanley Holloway, Sidney James

Now 65 years old, The Lavender Hill Mob is a peerless evocation of the austerity of

bomb-damaged postwar London, and another in a series of unimpeachable Ealing classics.

A masterly, inventive comedy about one million dollar heist that is both an ingenious and

inept, it remains a slice of pure comic wonderment.


Fri 22 April 7.30pm

Hail, Caesar!

Rating PG I Running Time 106 mins I USA/UK I 2016

Directed by Ethan Coen, Joel Coen Starring Channing Tatum, George Clooney, Tilda Swinton

Four-time Oscar-winning directors Joel and Ethan Coen return for a comedy about Fifties

Hollywood, and the ill-fated production of the epic Hail, Caesar! This hilarious and

star-studded satire serves as both a send-up and celebration of the golden age, with

a subtle poignancy shining through its uproarious veneer.

Tues 3 May 7.30pm

Chronic

Rating 15 I Running Time 93 mins I Mexico/France I 2016

Directed by Michel Franco Starring Tim Roth, Michael Cristofer, Bitsie Tulloch

With a stellar performance by Tim Roth, Chronic raises many complex and uncomfortable

questions about the way we deal with death. Playing a nurse battling with the weight of his

patients’ pain, Roth is calm and controlled, his devotion subtly but relentlessly shutting the family

out of the patient’s life, somehow excluding them from their own grief.

Thu 5 May (HOH) 11am/7.30pm

A Bigger Splash

Rating 15 I Running Time 124 mins I Italy/France I 2016

Directed by Luca Guadagnino Starring Tilda Swinton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Ralph Fiennes

An unexpected drama in glorious surroundings, A Bigger Splash is a four-way study of sex
