Margaret Atwood: On Screen - 'as live'

The wait is over….The Testaments, Margaret Atwood’s highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, is revealed. The momentous literary event will be celebrated with an exclusive cinema broadcast, as Fane Productions present an evening with the Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor.

The publication of Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985 and the current, Emmy Award-winning television series have created a cultural phenomenon, as handmaids have become a symbol of women’s rights and a protest against misogyny and oppression. Live from the London stage, Atwood will be interviewed by broadcaster and author Samira Ahmed in a conversation spanning the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story, 34 years later.

‘Dear Readers: Everything you've ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we've been living in.’ 

With exclusive readings from the new book by special guests, this will be an unmissable and intimate event with Atwood, spotlighting her signature insight, humour and intellect.

The Testaments will be published worldwide on 10 September.

One Man, Two Guvnors (NTLive) ' as live'

By Richard Bean
based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni, with songs by Grant Olding

Featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from host of the The Late Late Show, James Corden, the hilarious West End and Broadway hit One Man, Two Guvnors returns to cinemas to mark National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.

Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancée’s dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers.

Holed up at The Cricketers’ Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart.  Simple.

A cast of international singers – both familiar and making Royal Opera debuts – under conductor Hartmut Haenchen - perform the glorious arias and ensembles of this opera favourite.

Mrs Lowry and Son (PG)

Beloved British artist L.S. Lowry (Timothy Spall) lived all his life with his over-bearing mother Elizabeth (Vanessa Redgrave). Bed-ridden and bitter, Elizabeth actively tried to dissuade her bachelor son from pursuing his artistic ambitions, whilst never failing to voice her opinion at what a disappointment he was to her.

When unestablished as an artist, Lowry worked as a rent collector by day, observing the town of Salford, its factory workers and inhabitants closely. By night he took evening classes in art and painted until the early hours but his mother tried to dissuade him from pursuing art at every chance.

An intimate portrait, with moments of pleasant humour, this beautiful film delicately shows the impact Lowry’s controlling mother had on one of the country’s greatest artists of the 20th Century.

'The course of true love never did run smooth.’

A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences.

Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy will be captured live from the Bridge Theatre in London. Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun (The Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom.

Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will build on the success of his immersive staging of Julius Caesar (NT Live 2018). The Bridge Theatre will become a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot.

Manon (MET) - 'as live'

wesite-poster.jpg

Laurent Pelly’s enchanting production, starring exhilarating soprano Lisette Oropesa in the effervescent title role, explores the devastating consequences when excess and passion collide.

A quintessentially French tale, the story was originally set in the early 18th century but in this current production it takes place in the late 19th century, the era when the opera was actually written. The beautiful young woman incapable of forsaking both love and luxury is a timeless and familiar main character, despite the story being firmly set in a class and gender culture of the past.

Maurizio Benini conducts Massenet’s sensual score with tenor Michael Fabiano as the besotted Chevalier des Grieux, whose desperate love for Manon proves to be the undoing of these unfortunate lovers.

But right as she begins planning her biggest and boldest operation yet, she receives an unexpected letter that changes everything. Her application to adopt a child has finally been accepted and there is a little girl waiting for her in Ukraine...

Star countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo headlines as the revolutionary Pharaoh who transformed ancient Egypt.

Director Phelim McDermott, whose productions include the hugely successful Satyagraha by Philip Glass, returns to the Met to bring this contemporary production to life, with a virtuosic company and dramatic staging that features acrobatics and juggling.

The striking soprano J’Nai Bridges makes her Met debut as Nefertiti with Karen Kamensek conducting Glass’s ritualistic and hypnotic score.

Few operas can cast such a spell as Philip Glass’s Akhnaten. Glass’s music insinuates itself into the ear and stays there… in the end it is the poignancy that makes Akhnaten a special opera.

Present Laughter (NTLive) - 'as live'

enewsletter-mid-story.jpg

Matthew Warchus directs Andrew Scott (BBC’s Sherlock, Fleabag) in Noël Coward’s provocative comedy Present Laughter.

As he prepares to embark on an overseas tour, star actor Garry Essendine’s colourful life is in danger of spiralling out of control. Engulfed by an escalating identity crisis as his many and various relationships compete for his attention, Garry’s few remaining days at home are a chaotic whirlwind of love, sex, panic and soul-searching.

Captured live from The Old Vic in London, Present Laughter is a giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness.

“Noel Coward’s Present Laughter… is a revelation in the hands of director Matthew Warchus and his co-conspirator, Andrew Scott. It is hilarious and psychologically acute too.”

Fleabag (NTLive) - 'as live'

wesite-poster.jpg

Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge
Directed by Vicky Jones

★★★★★
'Witty, filthy and supreme.' Guardian

See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series Fleabag, broadcast live to cinemas from London’s West End.

Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, Fleabag is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life.

Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.

Playing to sold-out audiences in New York and London, don’t miss your chance to see this ‘legitimately hilarious show’ (New Yorker), broadcast live to a cinema near you.

Presented by DryWrite, Soho Theatre and Annapurna Theatre

The official report of all parliamentary debates.

See two-time Olivier Award winners, Lindsay Duncan (Birdman, About Time) and Alex Jennings (The Lady in the Van, The Queen), in this brand-new play by Simon Wood, broadcast live from the National Theatre in London.

Diana has a stinking hangover, a fox is destroying the garden, and secrets are being dug up all over the place. As the day draws on, what starts as gentle ribbing and the familiar rhythms of marital scrapping quickly turns to blood-sport.

A journey of discovery and catharsis begins, finding the courage to express himself in his own voice.

A feel-good film based on the memoir ‘Greetings from Bury Park’ by Sarfraz Manzoor (journalist and broadcaster) and his experiences growing up as a British Muslim boy in 80s Luton. Underscored by Springsteen lyrics and music that will stick with you for days.

Tolkien (12A)

Exploring the formative years of the renowned author J.R.R Tolkien's (Nicholas Hoult) life, Finnish director Dome Karukoski focuses on Tolkien’ journey from from his childhood with brother Hilary in a Birmingham orphanage to his days studying at Oxford university. Within this narrative are explored three interlinked themes: first is one of friendship, as Tolkien forms lasting bonds with fellow pupils in boisterous scenes that recall the thirst for art and life in Dead Poets Society; second is one of love, the young Tolkien falling for fellow boarder Edith Bratt (Lily Collins), a romance that is pure and enduring; and the third one of creative endeavour, as Tolkien evolves from academic to author, not always an easy transition.

Within this linear life story are cross-cut harrowing scenes from Tolkien’s brutal experiences on the battlefields of the Somme during World War I. This is where Karukoski’s film particularly impresses, raging flames transform into dragons and monsters, death never more than moments away due to the seamless visions of cinematographer Lasse Frank Johannessen and VFX supervisor Rupert Davies.

"This is still a sympathetic and sensitive portrait of the novelist as a young man, evolving his creative vision. If you want to know where Bilbo Baggins came from, this is a good place to start". - The Independent

3 Faces (15)

Observational, insightful, and ultimately powerful, 3 Faces adds another quietly thought-provoking chapter to writer-director Jafar Panahi's filmography.

Well-known actress Behnaz Jafari is distraught by a provincial girl's video plea for help, oppressed by her family to not pursue her studies at the Tehran drama conservatory. Behnaz abandons her shoot and turns to filmmaker Jafar Panahi to help solve the mystery of the young girl's troubles.

They travel by car to the rural northwest where they have amusing encounters with the charming folk of the girl's mountain village. But the city visitors soon discover that the protection of age-old traditions is as generous as local hospitality.

A road movie that opens into a political allegory, “3 Faces” is filled with unexpected turns. It is the latest from the Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi, a master of narrative diversion, who again has taken the twinned roles of director and driver, as he did in the documentary “Taxi” (2015). Here, playing himself, or a version of the filmmaker Jafar Panahi, he spends a large part of the movie behind the wheel of an S.U.V., motoring through the Iranian countryside to help an actress find a missing, possibly dead woman. They succeed but also find other women, including one who’s a ghost in a haunted world.

The Ladykillers - A Life More Ordinary

The 'A Life More Ordinary' screenings take place in a relaxed atmosphere where people are welcome to move around and come and go as they please.

Music Professor Marcus (Alec Guinness) rents a London flat from sweet old Mrs Wilberforce (Katie Johnson). He tells her that, from time to time, several other musicians will visit in order to rehearse. In truth, Guinness can't play a note, nor can his visitors: he's a criminal mastermind, holding court over a gang of thieves, including the likes of punkish Harry (Peter Sellers), homicidal Louis (Herbert Lom) and punchdrunk One-Round (Danny Green). The gang uses Professor Marcus' flat as headquarters as they conceive a daring £60,000 robbery.

After pulling off the job, the gang stuffs the loot in a railway station locker. To avoid detection, Marcus convinces the ever-trusting Mrs Wilberforce to pick up the money. Through a series of comic complications she returns home with a police escort, with neither the woman nor the police suspecting that she's carrying a fortune in her suitcase. Mistakenly believing that Mrs Wilberforce has ratted on them, the gang reluctantly plans to eliminate her.

Often referred to as the greatest crime caper film of all time, The Ladykillers won an Oscar nomination for William Rose's screenplay, and a BFA award for veteran character actress Johnson.

The film starts at 2pm and costs £5 entry (Carers go FREE).

Bel Canto (15)

Based on Ann Patchett's best-selling novel, BEL CANTO is a dramatic love story that follows famous soprano Roxanne Coss (Julianne Moore) who travels to a military dictatorship in South America to give a private concert at a party for Hosokawa (Ken Watanabe), a wealthy Japanese industrialist.

Just as the glittering gathering of diplomats and politicians convenes, the mansion is taken over by a guerrilla rebel group demanding the release of their imprisoned comrades. Threats are made, lives are lost, a tense negotiation begins, and a month long standoff ensues.

While they are confined to the house, the hostages and their captors, who speak different languages, are forced to find ways to communicate. Music, especially the beautiful arias performed by Moore's character, a songbird in captivity, sparks a shared sense of comradeship and even love, uniting the disparate housemates as they form unexpected bonds, overcome their differences, and discover their shared humanity.

"Unlike most hostage dramas, this film isn't about survival, cruelty, or escape; it's a powerfully moving, beautiful story about shared humanity revealed by time and close quarters." - Common Sense Media

"Another beautifully animated triumph for Laika, Missing Link is a visual treat with lots of humor, plenty of heart, and even a little food for thought." - Rotten Tomatoes

Meet Mr. Link (Zach Galifianakis): 8 feet tall, 630 lbs, and covered in fur, but don't let his appearance fool you, he is funny, sweet, and adorably literal, making him the world's most lovable legend!

Tired of living a solitary life in the Pacific Northwest, Mr. Link recruits fearless explorer Sir Lionel Frost (Hugh Jackman) to guide him on a journey to find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight (Zoe Saldana), our fearless trio of explorers encounter more than their fair share of peril as they travel to the far reaches of the world to help their new friend. Through it all, the three learn that sometimes you can find a family in the places you least expect.

Missing Link is a bigfoot adventure in the style of Indiana Jones from slick stop-motion animation studio LAIKA whose recent offerings include 'Kubo and the Two Strings' and 'Box Trolls'. This lovingly crafted family movie brims with visual charm and energy.

Their beautiful sets bring to life a magical world where the period detail is beyond gorgeous.

Amazing Grace (U)

"Amazing Grace is, without a doubt, one of the finest music documentaries ever" - ★★★★ The Guardian

The queen of soul didn’t want this film of a two-night recording session to be seen, but it’s a spine-tingling sensation.

In 1972, following a string of hits and Grammy awards, Aretha Franklin decided her next project would be a return to her roots. The daughter of a Detroit preacher, Franklin secured the New Bethel Baptist church in Los Angeles for a recording session, and the result was Amazing Grace, her most successful album and the top-selling gospel recording of all time.

The musical director is the affable Rev James Cleveland, who also sings and plays piano. The Southern California Community Choir, decked out in shiny silver vests, is led by its enthusiastic conductor, Rev Alexander Hamilton. The remainder of the group include top session men, such as Bernard “Pretty” Purdie on drums and Chuck Rainey on bass. But this isn’t a studio, it’s a church loaded with sound gear and a team of cameramen buzzing around.

Four decades on, Amazing Grace offers an abundance of time-capsule treasures – the clothing, the dancing, the very visible camera gear. Pollack skitters around, pointing at members of the crowd with a “shoot that” urgency to members of his camera crew.

Just as the glittering gathering of diplomats and politicians convenes, the mansion is taken over by a guerrilla rebel group demanding the release of their imprisoned comrades. Threats are made, lives are lost, a tense negotiation begins, and a month long standoff ensues.

While they are confined to the house, the hostages and their captors, who speak different languages, are forced to find ways to communicate. Music, especially the beautiful arias performed by Moore's character, a songbird in captivity, sparks a shared sense of comradeship and even love, uniting the disparate housemates as they form unexpected bonds, overcome their differences, and discover their shared humanity.

"Unlike most hostage dramas, this film isn't about survival, cruelty, or escape; it's a powerfully moving, beautiful story about shared humanity revealed by time and close quarters." - Common Sense Media

This event is subtitled and screened in Oscars. Spaces are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Amazing Grace (U)

Amazing Grace (U)

"Amazing Grace is, without a doubt, one of the finest music documentaries ever" - ★★★★ The Guardian

The queen of soul didn’t want this film of a two-night recording session to be seen, but it’s a spine-tingling sensation.

In 1972, following a string of hits and Grammy awards, Aretha Franklin decided her next project would be a return to her roots. The daughter of a Detroit preacher, Franklin secured the New Bethel Baptist church in Los Angeles for a recording session, and the result was Amazing Grace, her most successful album and the top-selling gospel recording of all time.

The musical director is the affable Rev James Cleveland, who also sings and plays piano. The Southern California Community Choir, decked out in shiny silver vests, is led by its enthusiastic conductor, Rev Alexander Hamilton. The remainder of the group include top session men, such as Bernard “Pretty” Purdie on drums and Chuck Rainey on bass. But this isn’t a studio, it’s a church loaded with sound gear and a team of cameramen buzzing around.

Four decades on, Amazing Grace offers an abundance of time-capsule treasures – the clothing, the dancing, the very visible camera gear. Pollack skitters around, pointing at members of the crowd with a “shoot that” urgency to members of his camera crew.

At Eternity's Gate (12A)

★★★★ - Rolling Stone

Earning him an Oscar® nomination, Willem Dafoe is mesmerising as Vincent van Gogh and artist who despite skepticism, ridicule and illness, created some of the world's most beloved and stunning works of art.

Covering his time in Arles and Auvers-sur-Oise, we find a complex, troubled soul who is seeking a new visual language, while also struggling to make sense of himself and his connection to those around him, including Paul Gaugain (Oscar Isaac) and a confiding priest (Mads Mikkelsen).

This is not a forensic biography, but rather scenes based on Vincent van Gogh's letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay and moments that are just plain invented.

Shot with a painter’s eye, Director and Academy Award Nominee Julian Schnabel once again shows his talent for working with complex biography and the lives of artists as in The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and Basquiat.

This event is screened in Oscars and spaces are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

The Lehman Trilogy (NTLive) 'as live'

By Stefano Massini, adapted by Ben Power
directed by Sam Mendes

The story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening.

163 years later, the firm they establish – Lehman Brothers – spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy, and triggers the largest financial crisis in history.

This critically acclaimed and five-time Olivier Award nominated play features stunning set design from Es Devlin (NT Live: Hamlet) and will be broadcast live from London’s West End as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th Birthday season.

Unreserved seating - This recorded stream is 'as live'.

Captain Marvel (12A)

In a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Brie Larson stars as one of the universe’s most powerful heroes – Captain Marvel.

Set in 1995, earth becomes caught in the middle of a galactic war between the Krees and the Skrulls. Extraterrestrial Kree warrior, Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) has recurring memories of life as U.S. Air Force pilot, Carol Danvers and with help from S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) she sets out to uncover the truth about her past, whilst harnessing her superpowers to end the war with the Skrulls.

“As a Nick Fury buddy comedy, it’s fun. As a feminist fable it’s essential. This takes a while to really get going, but when Carol Danvers takes off she is unstoppable.“ ★★★★ - Empire

The White Crow (12A)

The White Crow (12A)

Inspired by the book Rudolf Nureyev: The Life by Julie Kavanaugh and adapted for screen by David Hare, 'The White Crow' tells of Soviet ballet star Rudolf Nureyev's defection to the West in Paris, 1961, skilfully sketching in his past life via flashbacks of childhood and early manhood as a tempestuous young student in Leningrad.

Dance is represented as a transcendental experience of success, of leaving behind the past and reinventing the future. Like Billy Elliot’s defection from his working-class childhood, Nureyev’s flight involves crises of loyalty with family and community. These struggles are, however, a little enigmatic and opaque with Rudolf, as portrayed by the Ukrainian ballet star and first-time actor Oleg Ivenko. Ralph Fiennes directs and gives a performance of spaniel-eyed sadness as Nureyev’s dance teacher and mentor Alexander Pushkin, with whose wife Xenia (Chulpan Khamatova), Nureyev is to have a sentimental education.

This event is screened in Oscars and spaces are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
