On the Basis of Sex (12A)

Felicity Jones plays the real-life US supreme court justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in an inspiring drama detailing her personal struggle against injustice and prejudice.

In spite of graduating at the top of her class, Ruth is unable to find a position with a law firm because none of the firms she applies to want to hire a woman. She takes a job as a professor at Rutgers Law School, teaching "Sex Discrimination and the Law".

As she searches for the key case that will crack open the edifice of male privilege and sex discrimination, she teams up with her devoted husband Marty (Armie Hammer). Together they suceed in bringing a groundbreaking case before the U.S. Court of Appeals and overturn a century of gender discrimination.

Ginsburg’s story is undeniably fascinating, and the script, written by her nephew Daniel Stiepleman, focuses the film on the early cases of an historic career that lead to her nomination and confirmation as U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice.

"On the Basis of Sex is nowhere near as groundbreaking as its real-life subject, but her extraordinary life makes a solid case for itself as an inspirational, well-acted biopic." - Rotten Tomatoes

A Private War (15)

"Pike gives a thoroughly convincing performance as Colvin. A Private War offers a stirring account of the journalist’s life, career, and tragic, untimely death". - The Independent

Yet, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her, along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan),to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs.

Based on the extraordinary life of Marie Colvin, A PRIVATE WAR is brought to the screen by Academy Award nominee and critically acclaimed documentary filmmaker Matthew Heineman in his pulse-pounding narrative feature debut.

Hannah (12A)

"In this often wordless drama, Charlotte Rampling brings an intelligent intensity to the role of a woman whose ageing husband has been jailed." - ★★★★ The Guardian

Hannah is the intimate portrait of a woman's loss of identity as she teeters between denial and reality. Left alone grappling with the consequences of her husband's imprisonment, Hannah (Charlotte Ramping) begins to unravel. Through the exploration of her fractured sense of identity and loss of self-control, the film investigates modern day alienation, the struggle to connect, and the dividing lines between individual identity, personal relationships, and societal pressures.

Co-Writen and directed by Italian film-maker Andrea Pallaoro, Hannah is a haunting portrait of a lonely, unhappy life where much of the action is almost wordless, allowing the audience to share in the quiet dispair of each perfectly enacted scene.

Fisherman's Friends (12A)

Biographical comedy drama based on the true story about a group of Cornish Fishermen from Port Isaac who were signed by Universal Records and achieved a top 10 hit of traditional sea shanties.

A fast-living, cynical London music executive (Danny Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he's pranked by his boss (Noel Clarke) into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen (led by James Purefoy). He becomes the ultimate 'fish out of water' as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. As he's drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he's forced to re-evaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means.

This uplifting and feelgood British picture from the producer’s of 2018’s 'Finding Your Feet' stars Daniel Mays, James Purefoy and Tuppence Middleton.

"It’s as heartwarming and wholesome as a pasty on a drizzly day in Port Isaac. And it may well take the country by storm just like the shanty men who inspired the tale." - Folk Radio

As a student in 1930s Cambridge, young Joan (Sophie Cookson) falls in love with seductively attractive Russian saboteur Leo Galich (Tom Hughes).

Yuli (15)

TYuli is the story of the first black principal dancer for the Royal Ballet in London, Carlos Acosta (nicknamed Yuli by his father). Adapted from Acosta’s autobiography ‘No Way Home’ by Paul Laverty (writer of I, Daniel Blake), the Spanish-langauge drama chronicles Acousta's life from an underprivileged, though happy, childhood in Cuba, his time at the country's National Dance School through to him joining and performing with London's prestigious Royal Ballet.

Directed by Icíar Bollaín and featuring Carlos Acosta’s own dance company, Acosta Danza, this story is beautiful and moving, reflecting Acosta’s life growing up in Cuba, his relationship with his family and father and his relationship with his country.

"The film-makers' hearts are in Havana and, yes, their enthusiasm is infectious. The genius in the film is in how each section feeds each other and indeed, needs each other (the dance comments on the drama and vice versa)and produces a wholly original and deeply affecting movie." - Rotten Tomatoes

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Missing Link (PG)

"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.

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

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).

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.

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

On the Basis of Sex (12A)

Felicity Jones plays the real-life US supreme court justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in an inspiring drama detailing her personal struggle against injustice and prejudice.

In spite of graduating at the top of her class, Ruth is unable to find a position with a law firm because none of the firms she applies to want to hire a woman. She takes a job as a professor at Rutgers Law School, teaching "Sex Discrimination and the Law".

As she searches for the key case that will crack open the edifice of male privilege and sex discrimination, she teams up with her devoted husband Marty (Armie Hammer). Together they suceed in bringing a groundbreaking case before the U.S. Court of Appeals and overturn a century of gender discrimination.

Ginsburg’s story is undeniably fascinating, and the script, written by her nephew Daniel Stiepleman, focuses the film on the early cases of an historic career that lead to her nomination and confirmation as U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice.

"On the Basis of Sex is nowhere near as groundbreaking as its real-life subject, but her extraordinary life makes a solid case for itself as an inspirational, well-acted biopic." - Rotten Tomatoes

Identical triplet brothers Robert Shafran, Eddy Galland and David Kellman didn't meet each other, let alone know about each other, until they were nineteen years old in 1980 and an astonishing coincidence brought them together. Their jaw-dropping, feel-good story instantly became a global sensation complete with fame and celebrity, however, the fairy-tale reunion sets in motion a series of events that unearth an unimaginable secret,a secret with radical repercussions for us all.

Surreal and surprising, Three Identical Strangers begins with a happy ending before going on to question the nature of reality and identity.

Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site 'BuzzzTube' and Shank (Gal Gadot), a tough-as-nails driver from "Slaughter Race" a gritty online auto-racing game, a place Vanellope wholeheartedly embraces, so much so that Ralph worries he may lose the only friend he's ever had.

Stan & Ollie (PG)

“Stan & Ollie is a gently elegiac homage to Laurel and Hardy. With beautiful performances by Steve Coogan (as Stan Laurel) and John C Reilly (as Oliver Hardy), it is a film about friendship and loyalty as much as a comedy.” **** The Independent

Stan & Ollie pays tribute to a pair of beloved entertainers with an affectionate look behind the scenes and a moving look at the burdens and blessings of a creative bond.

Laurel & Hardy, one of the world's great comedy teams, set out on a variety hall tour of Britain in 1953. Diminished by age and with their golden era as the kings of Hollywood comedy now behind them, they face an uncertain future. As the charm and beauty of their performances shines through, they re-connect with their adoring fans. The tour becomes a hit, but Stan & Ollie can't quite shake the specter of Laurel and Hardy's past; the long-buried ghosts, coupled with Oliver's failing health, start to threaten their precious partnership.

A portrait of the most tender and poignant of creative marriages, they are aware that they may be approaching their swan song, trying to rediscover just how much they mean to each other.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (PG)

"For all its mythical fire-breathing reptiles, the How To Train Your Dragon series is a coming-of-age story at heart. Hiccup, originally a kid on the cusp of adolescence and Toothless, his adorable Night Fury, have grown up incrementally with each instalment — a boy-and-his-cat-dragon duo who rank among DreamWorks Animation’s most emotionally engaging partnerships." - Empire

Hiccup (Jay Baruchel), now chief of Berk alongside Astrid (America Ferrera), has turned the island into a gloriously chaotic dragon utopia.

When the sudden appearance of Grimmel (F. Murray Abraham), a dragon hunter, threatens to disrupt the peace, Hiccup and Toothless must leave the only home they've known and journey to a hidden world thought only to exist in myth. As their true destines are revealed, dragon and rider will fight together-to the very ends of the Earth-to protect everything they've grown to treasure.

The rare trilogy capper that really works, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World brings its saga to a visually dazzling and emotionally affecting conclusion.

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (15)

Grab your feather boa and join us to celebrate Gay Pride in Ludlow with the bright, glitzy and fabulously queer road movie Priscilla Queen of the Desert"

The usually menacing British actor Terence Stamp does a complete turnaround as Bernadette, an ageing transsexual who tours the backwaters of Australia with her stage partners, Mitzi (Hugo Weaving) and Adam/Felicia (Guy Pearce). When Mitzi and Felicia get an offer to perform in the remote town of Alice Springs at a casino, Bernadette decides to tag along.

The threesome ventures into the outback with Priscilla, a lavender-coloured school bus that doubles as dressing room and home on the road. Along the way, the act encounters any number of strange characters, as well as incidents of homophobia, while Bernadette becomes increasingly concerned about the path her life has taken.

Writer/Director Stephan Elliott’s cult film achieved an academy award for its spectacular costume designers Lizzy Gardiner and Tim Chappel. The film’s alternative aesthetic is fondly remembered. But Priscilla found mainstream appeal largely by tapping into quintessentially Australian values, such as self-deprecation, blunt humour and determination in the face of adversity.

While its premise is ripe for comedy and it certainly delivers its fair share of laughs

“Priscilla is also a surprisingly tender and thoughtful road movie with some outstanding performances” - Rotten Tomatoes
