  • Rocketman
    For all screenings:
    The inside word is that Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service) is pretty much guaranteed a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his performance as singer-songwriter and gay icon Elton John in this hotly anticipated biopic, which traces the superstar’s rise from his humble beginnings as the pudgy Reginald Dwight through to his reign as pop music’s most popular performer. Director Dexter Fletcher—who stepped in to fill Bryan Singer’s shoes on Bohemian Rhapsody after Singer was fired from that hit—does not whitewash the darker moments along the way: the singer’s descent into a drug-addled suicidal state is given full play. More happily—and unlike Rhapsody, which soft-pedalled Freddie Mercury’s homosexuality—Elton’s sexuality is front and centre, as the film chronicles his love for his manager John Reid (John Madden, Game of Thrones’ Robb Stark) and his close relationship with co-songwriter Bernie Taupin (Jamie Bell). Above all, the glorious music (performed wonderfully by the outrageously costumed Egerton) is brought to life with great style and feeling. This has ‘smash hit’ written all over it.

  • Au bout des doigts
    For all screenings:
    Walking through Paris’s Gare de Nord one day, the besieged music director of the national conservatory, Pierre Geithner (Lambert Wilson, Of Gods and Men) hears a glorious rendering of a classical piece emanating from the public piano available for anyone in the station to play. The player is young Mathieu (newcomer Jules Benchetrit), a testy kid from the banlieu, who gets chased by the police before Pierre can approach him. Pierre is in trouble at work—the higher-ups think he’s lost it—and when he finally tracks Mathieu down he thinks he can save his position by turning the boy into a star. Enter the Countess (Kristin Scott Thomas), the conservatory’s best teacher and the possessor of a reputation for fearsome perfectionism… From this rather classical set-up, director Ludovic Bernard fashions a series of finely etched character studies—all three of the principals reveal unexpected layers of complexity—as he follows young Mathieu through his difficult passage at the school. And if you think you know where Bernard is going with his script, prepare to be wrong-footed more than once…

  • Richard Says Goodbye
    For all screenings:
    Johnny Depp positively revels in his role as a straight-shooting college English professor (the film’s title has been changed to The Professor for its release in the English-speaking world) turned sex-drugs-and-booze wild man in Wayne Roberts’s dark comedy. Depp is the eponymous Richard, a cuckold and a basic failure at the academic game, who is diagnosed with stage-4 cancer and given six months to live. So he decides to throw out the rulebook and live life to the hilt—much to chagrin of his philandering wife Veronica (Rosemarie DeWitt) and college dean Peter (Danny Huston). As for his students—those who pass his stringent new guidelines for attending class love their new prof, who now binge-drinks alongside them… After what seems like an eternity spent wasting his talent, Depp finally delivers a performance that shows he is indeed an actor of the highest order.

    ‘There's a faint boozy whiff of the Jack Sparrows about Johnny Depp's sozzled performance in this low-key tale… It's American Beauty meets Dead Poets Society given a terminal-disease twist, and while not as scathing nor as inspirational as those films, The Professor happily mines laughs from the darkest of places.’—Jamie Healy, RadioTimes

  • Diego Maradona
    For all screenings:
    Coming off the success of his Amy Winehouse documentary, Amy, director Asif Kapadia tackles the life of another tortured soul with this fast-paced and riveting consideration of Argentina’s #1 living god, legendary footballer Diego Maradona. It’s all here: his early failures at Barcelona, his legendary stay at Napoli, his leading of Argentina to the 1986 World Cup, the cocaine, the tragedies… As one wag put it, it’s ‘goals, nightclubs, goals, adulation, goals, gangsters, keepy-uppy, girlfriends, pregnancies, pregnancy denials, cocaine, weight gain, press fickleness, despair…’ (Peter Bradshaw). It’s also massively entertaining and insightful about the rewards and drawbacks of worldwide fame. For better or worse, there will never be another like Diego Armando Maradona…

    ‘Watching this typically punchy portrait of Argentina’s most infamous sporting son, I found myself gripped by a universally accessible tale of a divided soul—a figure whose dual personas are embodied in the two names of the film’s title; Diego and Maradona… [It’s] a tale of rags and riches, saints and sinners, crime and football, injury and victory, all played out against the backdrop of the city [Naples] that comes to embody his divided spirit.’—Mark Kermode, Guardian

  • Thu 22 Aug 13:30 La Quietud Read more Order tickets directly
  • La Quietud
    For all screenings:
    ‘The Quietude’ is the name of the sprawling ranch in the Argentina that serves as the setting for Pablo Trapero’s sexually charged drama about the secrets, lies, and betrayals within an anything-but-quiet rich family. French star Bérénice Bejo (The Artist) and Martina Gusmán scorch the screen as sisters Eugenia and Mía, respectively (it is uncanny how closely they resemble each other), who reunite at the family hacienda after their father suffers a stroke. Euge (as she is called) is pregnant, to the delight of mother Esmeralda (the scene-stealing Graciela Borges), and trying to end an affair with a local man, while her husband (Carlos’ Edgar Ramírez) and sweet sis Mía are more than happy to continue their own long-time dalliance. As Trapero lays on the melodrama in vastly entertaining—and very sexual—swathes, a dark political undercurrent involving the Argentinean dictatorship of the 1970s rises to the surface and threatens to blow things sky high…

    ‘Trapero’s beautifully crafted multilayered drama… [is] his most enjoyable film in years. Boasting a trio of actresses at the top of their game and cinematography that constantly impresses with its confident yet unshowy fluidity, the movie deftly enters into the bosom of a family harboring multiple secrets, encompassing the personal and political… Gusmán and Bejo share a remarkable affinity in their scenes together, an unbounded physicality that seems almost to erase surface differences, as if they’re twins…’—Jay Weissberg, Variety

  • The Biggest Little Farm
    For all screenings:
    Shot over the course of eight years, John Chester’s gorgeous paean to the power of Mother Nature and humankind’s attempts to tame it via farming is one of the documentaries of the year. Chester and his wife, Molly—he’s a documentary cameraman, she’s a chef—quit their Santa Monica lives in favour of their dream: owning a farm and making it productive. If they had known what was in store for them—dead soil, snail infestations, coyote attacks, record droughts—surely they would have come to their senses, but, luckily for us, they didn’t. Chester captures the process of overcoming their ordeals with the help of a mentor and learning to work in harmony with nature’s unpredictable foibles. The result is often breathtaking—Chester’s amazing cinematography begs to be seen on the big screen—and always deeply affecting.

    ‘As the story unfolds… Biggest becomes… a thoughtful and often profoundly moving portrait of the remarkable work involved in producing mindful food—and an eloquent reminder that so much of what we take for granted on our plates is, in its own everyday way, a miracle.’—Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
  • Thu 22 Aug 14:15 Ask Dr. Ruth Read more Order tickets directly
  • Ask Dr. Ruth
    For all screenings:
    For many people of a certain age, North Americans especially, Dr Ruth Westheimer—Holocaust survivor, university professor, grandma, sex therapist—was a household name, thanks to her thousands of appearances on TV and radio, where she never failed to shock with her forthright celebration of sexual pleasure. In the lead up to her 90th birthday, director Ryan White fashioned this compelling, eye-opening, and very entertaining chronology of her life, her loves, and her enormous influence. White had the full cooperation of his subject—Dr Ruth narrates the film—and the stories she tells and the images she provides are fascinating stuff indeed.

    ‘Charming… The documentary is at its best when it goes beyond the mere facts of Dr. Ruth’s life (though they’re intriguing and worthy of coverage) to moments of contemplation and revelation. Whether it’s Ruth reflecting on the details of her three marriages with her characteristic frankness or her family unpacking her political stances, it offers up insight into a woman who helped so many others truly know themselves.’—Maureen Lee Lenker, Entertainment Weekly

  • So Long, My Son
    For all screenings:
    Covering three decades from the late 1980s to today, Sixth-Generation Chinese master Wang Xiaoshuai’s profoundly affecting drama is both epic in scope and intimate in the way it zeros in on one family and their friends, while demonstrating how China’s old one-child policy could lead to heartbreak. Yaojun (Wang Jingchun, last seen in Zhang Yimou’s Shadow) and his wife Liyun (Yong Mei, so memorable in Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s The Assassin) suffer an enormous loss when their son drowns. After having moved away and, hamstrung by that now-abandoned one-child policy, having adopted another boy, Yaojun and Liyun try to rebuild their shattered lives. But China’s “economic miracle” and the vagaries of chance and fate keep intruding… Director Wang is in total control here, fashioning a deeply felt film that will knock you for a loop. The leads, Wang and Yong, were the deserving winners of the Best Actor and Best Actress awards, respectively, at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival.

    ‘Deeply moving… The film finds, then repeatedly breaks, your heart, before a subtly momentous finale which perhaps, after all the sorrow, is the happiest ending in recent memory: a reminder that for all that such decent people may ever lose in this life, so much will always remain.’—Jessica Kiang, Variety

  • Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood
    For all screenings:
    The most hotly anticipated Hollywood film of the year has arrived, and—make no mistake—it fully lives up to everything you may have heard or read about it. Quentin Tarantino’s fabulous ode to a time and place much mythologized—1969 Los Angeles and its Hollywood Dream Factory, soon to be fatally stained by the Manson murders—stars Leo DiCaprio as the on-the-verge-of-being-washed-up movie star Rick Dalton and Brad Pitt as his stuntman and drinking buddy Cliff Booth. As veterans of the Hollywood machine, they are surrounded by industry players, big and small, and they take every advantage of their status. Meanwhile, Tarantino weaves a tapestry that includes all of his obsessions, from pop music and Hollywood trivia to Spaghetti Westerns and drive-in restaurants, into a sprawling, beautifully filmed paean to an era about to come to a shockingly grisly end with the Manson Family massacre. Be prepared to have your mind blown…

    ‘Tarantino's dazzling LA redemption song… Quite simply, I just defy anyone with red blood in their veins not to respond to the crazy bravura of Tarantino’s film-making, not to be bounced around the auditorium at the moment-by-moment enjoyment that this movie delivers—and conversely, of course, to shudder at the horror and cruelty and its hallucinatory aftermath…’—Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

  • Blinded by the Light
    For all screenings:
    It’s the 1980s in Britain: Thatcher’s policies are hurting the working class, skinheads from the xenophobic National Front are on the march, and 16-year-old Javed (first-timer Viveik Kalra), the son of straitlaced Pakistani immigrants, is aching for something—a kiss, for example—to change his life. While dreaming of becoming a writer, Javed must deal with the racist slights that mar his daily life in the London suburb of Luton and his parents’ determination to see him become a member of the professional class. Enter the glorious songs of Bruce Springsteen (the singer-songwriter personally read the script and gave immediate approval for the use of his tunes), which hit Javed like a bolt from the musical heavens… With the same joyful embrace of possibility that made her Bend It Like Beckham an international hit, director Gurinder Chadha fashions an irresistible ode to hope and teenage obsession that is sure to leave you humming the Boss’s songs with a smile on your face.

    ‘Love, faith, Springsteen; that and a Sony Walkman are all it takes to surrender to the pure, ingenuous joy of Blinded by the Light, a Technicolor ode the power of music so deeply tender and heartfelt that it disarms even the most misanthropic critic’s instincts… Kalra embodies [his character’s travails] with so much grace and natural charisma that it’s hard to believe it’s his big screen debut…’—Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly

  • Yesterday
    For all screenings:
    Imagine if you, a struggling musician, got a bump on the head during a worldwide power outage and woke up to a universe in which the Beatles never existed. That’s what happens to Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) in screenwriter Richard Curtis (Love, Actually, Notting Hill) and director Danny Boyle’s (Slumdog Millionaire) delightfully musical dramatic comedy. Knowing that success requires nothing more than passing off the Beatles’ fab tunes as his own—if only he can remember them—Malik starts climbing the slippery slope to stardom, jeopardizing his relationship with lifelong friend and potential love interest Ellie (Lily James) in the process. Curtis’ insider’s view of the music business, Boyle’s energetic direction, and all those great Beatles’ songs make this a clever and occasionally somewhat dark view of what happens when your dreams—stolen though they are—come true.

    ‘Few stories tiptoe a line between horror and wish fulfilment as nimbly as this high-concept tragi-comedy… While Danny Boyle’s new film is still a largely warm and frequently surprising affair, its unusual premise gives it an edge that other jukebox hits—Bohemian Rhapsody, for example—have lacked… A glowing tribute to The Beatles and their music, this is both a toe-tapping pleasure to watch and a smart, occasionally scathing look at how we get things wrong.’—Helen O’hara, Empire
