  • Judy
    For all screenings:
    If you listen to the critics—and this time they are right—Renée Zellweger should be a cinch to capture the Best Actress Oscar for her phenomenal portrayal of singing and acting legend Judy Garland during her last concert run in 1969 London, a series of alternately masterful and abject performances undertaken as Garland’s descent into a miasma of booze and drugs accelerated out of control. Director Rupert Goold (known best for True Story) captures moments of truth in Garland’s life by flashing back to her formative days under the ogre Louis B. Mayer at MGM, and her career in general, to show a portrait of a woman who wanted nothing more than to be with her kids. This is powerful stuff, anchored by Zellweger’s superb performance. Bring a handkerchief.

    ‘Zellweger is phenomenally good… She captures the frayed edges of a voice that has taken a lifetime of punishment; the girlish ragdoll fling of arms and legs of a woman whose public never quite forgave her for growing up. And the humour: Garland’s wisecracks are delivered with a trouper’s comic timing… [A]t its strongest, the film captivates; it grabs you by the heart and demands adoration. And in a film about Judy Garland, you would expect nothing less.’—Wendy Ide, Guardian

  • Official Secrets
    For all screenings:
    In 2003, Katherine Gun was a translator working for the British Security Services when she uncovered evidence that the US was resorting to dirty tricks like blackmail to force smaller countries to use their UN vote to support the US-led invasion of Iraq. She blew the whistle—and promptly saw her life go down the toilet. Director Gavin Hood (Eye in the Sky) and star Keira Knightley (superb as Gun) team up to cast a light on the tangled web that Gun’s life became. The result is a taut tale of espionage that reveals yet again the lengths that even the most democratic-seeming of governments will go when they think their interests and alliances are threatened.

    ‘Keira Knightley shines… [The film] is a beady-eyed spy drama that has shrewd things to say about the British establishment’s tendency to spite under pressure, about the eternal duality of cockup and conspiracy, about the Kafkaesque problems involved in defending yourself legally against a treason charge, and, importantly, about the kind of young, vulnerable people that we end up depending on to tell us how we are governed.’—Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

  • Portrait de la jeune fille en feu
    For all screenings:
    Winner of the Best Screenplay prize at Cannes earlier this year, Céline Sciamma’s ravishing and heartbreaking period piece is set in windswept coastal Brittany at the end of the 18th century. Artist Marianne (Noémie Merlant), ostensibly hired as a female companion for young noblewoman Héloïse (Adèle Haenel), has actually been enlisted to secretly paint Héloïse’s portrait, which is to be used as a kind of advertisement aimed at a prospective suitor. As the two grow closer, a forbidden love blossoms between them… Sciamma manages a remarkable feat here: while crafting a decidedly feminist take on what it was like to live as a female artist and a woman constantly in the shadow of men, she has also fashioned one of the most romantic, brilliantly performed and masterly directed films your likely to see in a long time.

    ‘A painterly masterpiece… Sciamma’s razor-sharp and shatteringly romantic Portrait of a Lady on Fire [is] as perfect a film as any to have premiered this year… [This] deliriously moving film is laser-focused on the space between having something and keeping something, and [Sciamma] visualizes that space by creating a sliver of distance between her characters and their shadows… An unforgettable film that cooks at a low simmer until going incandescent in its closing minutes…’—David Ehrlich, IndieWire

  • Amazing Grace
    For all screenings:
    In 1972, the great R&B singer Aretha Franklin—then 29 and at the peak of her powers—gave two concerts in a run-down church in the Watts neighbourhood of L.A., which she meant as a two-night homage to her gospel roots. Future Oscar-winner Sydney Pollack was on hand to film the performances. For reasons both technical and personal, the resulting footage never saw the light of day until now, and the results are nothing short of transcendent. The film does nothing except capture Franklin in her heart-stopping glory—there are no talking heads, no archival inserts—but that is more than enough to keep you riveted to the screen. Amazing, indeed!!

    ‘Amazing Grace can stand as an essential filmed record of what is undoubtedly one of the greatest gospel performances you’ll ever see… The sound is never pious or autumnal. It’s majestic and soaring and athrob with rhythm… The movie reveals how the fundamental distinction between “rock ‘n’ roll” and “rhythm and blues” was not only racist at its core, but a way for the consumer culture to slice the God out of music that was invented as a way to talk to God. In Amazing Grace, Aretha Franklin transcends the blues by saying a little prayer—or singing one—for all of us.’—Owen Gleiberman, Variety

  • Sorry We Missed You
    For all screenings:
    The ‘Uberized’ economy and its inherent inequality are given a drubbing in Ken Loach’s latest heartfelt social drama, a film that many critics have said is even better than his Palme d’Or-winning previous work, I, Daniel Blake. Ricky (Kris Hitchen), an underemployed former construction worker laid-off after the 2008 financial crisis, is in dire need of a job to help support his wife Abbie (Debbie Honeywood), an in-home caregiver, and their two kids. After a pub chat with a mate, Ricky convinces himself that the way out of his family’s financial misery is to become a no-benefits, no-overtime freelance driver for a big delivery company… With passion, intelligence, great empathy, and an abundance of well-researched detail, Loach and his fine cast show the tragic consequences of unfettered capitalism as Ricky’s dream turns into a nightmare...

    ‘Superb… a film in the tradition of Loach’s previous work and reaching back to Vittorio De Sica’s Bicycle Thieves. It’s fierce, open and angry, unironised and unadorned, about a vital contemporary issue whose implications you somehow don’t hear on the news… This brilliant film will focus minds.’—Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

    For all screenings:
    Winner of the Golden Lion at the 2019 Venice Film Festival, the most controversial American film of the year is the origin story of the greatest comic book villain ever: Batman’s nemesis, the Joker. As inhabited—‘acted’ doesn’t do the stunning performance justice—by an amazing Joaquin Phoenix, Arthur Fleck is a bullied clown and would-be comedian afflicted by pseudobulbar affect, an emotional disorder that results in uncontrollable laughter. A social outcast whose mental disorders initially evoke sympathy, Fleck gradually evolves into the psychopath we all love to hate: the villain who makes the chaotic streets of Gotham City even more dangerous. It is no surprise that Robert De Niro provides support—director Todd Phillips and Phoenix have deliberately created the most memorable (and frightening) anti-hero since De Niro’s Travis Bickle caused havoc in New York in Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver.

    ‘Bold, devastating and utterly beautiful… Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix have not just reimagined one of the most iconic villains in cinema history, but reimagined the comic book movie itself… Phoenix is astonishing… His physicality is precise—the way he moves, shuffles, runs, sits, smokes, shrinks. His usual intensity is on full display and it’s captivating, even overwhelming in moments.’—Terri White, Empire

  • Downton Abbey
    For all screenings:
    The worldwide phenomenon that was the Downton Abbey television series has now been transformed into a big-screen extravaganza, starring all your favourite characters from the original, including Hugh Bonneville (Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham), Laura Carmichael (Lady Edith Crawley), Allen Leech (Tom Branson), Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary Crawley), Elizabeth McGovern (Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham), Joanne Froggat (Anna Bates), Jim Carter (Charles Carson), Matthew Goode (Henry Talbot) and the inimitable Maggie Smith (Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham). The plot revolves around what the Crawleys and their staff see as the crowning (pun intended) moment of their lives—a royal visit from the king and queen. Needless to say, this sets in motion a set of scandals, romances, and intrigues that will shake Downton's future.

    Written by series creator Julian Fellowes and directed by Michael Engler, who cut his teeth directing episodes of the series, this promises to do justice to a show that garnered three Golden Globes and 15 Emmy Awards, a show that remains close to the hearts of millions around the world.

    Following up on his international hit Ramswith another tale set in the raw Icelandic countryside, Grímur Hákonarson’s comedic drama (called The Countyin English) focuses on Inga (Arndís Hrönn Egilsdóttir), an ageing and recently widowed dairy farmer who is struggling to make ends meet. When she uncovers evidence that the local farming co-op is corrupt, she posts an entry on Facebook labelling co-op honchos as ‘The Co-op Mafia’, and the battle begins… Hákonarson crafts a classic David and Goliath story replete with delightfully comic visual moments and a thoroughly humanistic tone. Egilsdóttir is superb in her first lead role—as Inga goes to war with the co-op heavies, her tenacious wit and unshakeable resolve keep us with her every step of the way.
    ‘A poised, compact audience pleaser that chimes with contemporary concerns over agricultural practices and female empowerment, whilst also giving viewers the chance to indulge in some Capra-esque cheering of the underdog… Arndís Hrönn Egilsdóttir is centre stage throughout, giving a commanding performance as Inga.

    For all screenings:
    Martin Scorsese’s long-awaited epic about the mob’s purported involvement in the 1975 disappearance of former Teamsters union leader Jimmy Hoffa (the iconic Al Pacino, now 79 years old) is a brilliantly cinematic summation of themes that have preoccupied the director from day one. Scorsese (now almost 77) gives us alter ego and legend Robert De Niro (76) as the eponymous Frank Sheeran, a WWII vet who evolves from a truck driver into a stone-cold killer under the auspices of mob boss Russell Bufalino (the amazing Joe Pesci, now also 76, who came out of retirement to take the role). Sheeran also becomes the bodyguard for, and close friend of, Hoffa, the corrupt union boss whose insider knowledge of mafia dealings proves a threat when the feds put the squeeze on him… Much has been made of the CGI ‘de-ageing’ process—it works just fine—that allows the leads to play their characters in their younger lives, but the immense achievement here comes from a group of ageing artists and friends working at the peak of their powers. Don’t wait for the Netflix release—this is a piece of pure cinema that demands to be seen on the big screen.

    ‘Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and—especially—Joe Pesci turn in performances of wintry brilliance in Scorsese’s epically daring late stage mob masterpiece… No one but Scorsese and this glorious cast could have made this movie live as richly and compellingly as it does, and persuade us that its tropes and images are still vital. We have had ample opportunity to tire of the mob, the politicians, Florida, Cuba and so on. But Scorsese brings it back into a scalpel-sharp focus… It is another massive achievement for Scorsese.’—Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

    For all screenings:
    Emin Alper, who caused a stir on the international film scene with his first film Beyond the Hill in 2012, returns with this dramatic Dutch co-production, which won awards for Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress (for the ‘ensemble’), and Best Music, as well as the FIPRESCI (International Critics’) award, at the Istanbul Film Festival this past April. In a poor mountain village, traditional ways are being tested: after having been ‘loaned out’ to richer families to serve them (a rural custom) Havva (Helin Kandemir) and Nurhan (Ece Yüksel) rejoin their married eldest sister Reyhan (Cemre Ebüzziya) back at their crotchety father’s farmhouse. What follows is a folktale-ish roundelay of betrayal and ambition as the three sisters attempt to wrestle control of their own lives from their scheming father and the traditions he embraces.

    ‘Setting his tale of family love and rivalry, small ambitions and great cruelties in a postcard-perfect village nestled between snowy mountain peaks, Emin Alper’s A Tale of Three Sisters (Kiz Kardesler) is a unique work that deftly blends Chekhov and the Brothers Grimm. Often entrancing and sometimes quite intense, the film has a fairy tale quality that gives the unfolding drama… a classic, old-fashioned air.’—Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
