  • Sun 22 Apr 11:00 Lady Bird Tickets
  • Lady Bird
    For all screenings:
    Greta Gerwig has been one of the most original, affecting actresses of the last decade, and, with her directing debut, Lady Bird, she must now be considered one of the most original, affecting directors, as well. Nothing short of a revelation, her coming-of-age taleset in pre-Facebook Sacramento, California, in 2002traces the ups and downs in the life of the self-named Lady Bird (a magical Saoirse Ronan) as she negotiates the pitfalls of late adolescence while constantly battling her mother (an Academy Award-nominated performance from Laurie Metcalfe) and dreaming of admission to an East Coast university. Brash, funny, and brimming with vitality, Lady Bird places Gerwig at the forefront of American independent filmmaking. Nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and winner of the Golden Globe for Best Picture Musical or Comedy.

    'Fizzily funny and wistfully affecting, a story whose familiar contours nevertheless contain something utterly original and revelatory.. Lady Bird is a triumph of style, sensibility and spirit. The girl at its center may not be a heavyweight, but her movie is epic.'Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

  • God's Own Country
    For all screenings:
    His father (Ian Hart) having suffered a stroke, it's down to young Johnny Saxby (star-in-the-making Josh O'Connor), a closeted gay man, to run the family farm in the wet and wild Yorkshire Dales. However, the stoic and tight-lipped Johnny is not doing a very good job of it, no doubt due in part to the fact that he drinks himself into a stupor every night. When he hires the optimistic Romanian migrant worker Gheorghe (Alec Secareanu) to help during lambing season, the stage is set for a surprising romance that turns the tables on what we've come to expect of gay love stories.. Director Francis Lee invokes the spirit of that other Lee (Ang) and his gay classic, Brokeback Mountain, but updates both the attitudes of the characters and the visual presentation to craft a tale that we've never seen the likes of before. Winner of the Best British Independent Film Award.

    'Both post-gay and pre-Brexit, Francis Lee's debut feature is anything but a straightforward coming-out tale. Instead it's an eerily beautiful love story between two men and the wild Yorkshire landscape.. One of the most exciting British debuts of the past decade..'Alex Davidson, Sight & Sound

  • The Post
    For all screenings:
    In the late 60s and early 70s, Washington Post publisher Katherine Graham (Meryl Streep) and editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) did not always see eye-to-eye. But the two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers and their very freedom to help expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. presidents. The top-secret files they have been given threaten to expose government lies that led the U.S. into the morass of the Vietnam War. The Pentagon Papers case, as it came to be known, is now regarded as a key moment for transparency, whistleblowing and holding government to account.

    The Post marks the first time Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg have collaborated on a project. The film was nominated for six Golden Globes and has been described as a Hollywood all-star team's riposte to Donald Trump, provoking debate about the U.S. president's attempts to delegitimise the mainstream media.

  • Sun 22 Apr 13:30 Der Hauptmann (The Captain) Tickets
  • Der Hauptmann (The Captain)
    For all screenings:
    Set in the waning days of WWII, writer-director Robert Schwentkes compelling parable about powers ability to corrupt absolutely focuses on lost German Private Willi Herold (Max Hubacher), a deserter and coward. Herold is scrambling to survive amidst the chaotic, life-or-death madness he finds around him in the German countryside when he comes across a captains uniform, dons it, begins playing the role of a man with some power and gradually turns into a monster, willing to kill not just to survive, but because he can .. Schwentke shot this potent drama in dazzling widescreen black and white, evoking classic WWII dramas (Larisa Shepitko's The Ascent and Andrei Tarkovsky's Ivan's Childhood come to mind) while fashioning a shiver-inducing treatise on war's ability to destroy souls that is all his own. In the character of Hubacher's grittily embodied Private Herold, Schwentke has found the perfect captain to lead us into the heart of darkness.

  • Sun 22 Apr 14:00 Finding Your Feet Tickets
  • Finding Your Feet
    For all screenings:
    A superb cast, headed up by British greats Imelda Staunton and Timothy Spall, keeps Richard Loncraine's delightful comedy humming with wit, romance, and a side order of gentle melancholy. When the snobbish and, frankly, unlikeable Lady Sandra Abbott (Staunton) discovers that her 'devoted' husband has been having an affair with one of her best friends, she is forced to rely on her decidedly down-market sister, Elizabeth (the scene-stealing Celia Imrie), a bohemian liberal who finds joy in seniors' dance classes. As Lady Abbot learns what it is to be humanaided in no small measure by the growing affections of the down-to-earth Cockney furniture-restorer Chester (Spall) she begins to see that life can, indeed, be re-booted whenever one sets one's mind to it.. Winner of the Audience Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival.

    'Sweet and plummy as a jam tart, Richard Loncraine's gentle late-life romcom hits its romantic-comedy beats with an old-timer's clockwork efficiency.' -Guy Lodge, Variety

  • The Rider
    For all screenings:
    Gorgeously shot and utterly realistic in performance and setting, Chloé Zhao's emotionally nuanced drama, set in South Dakota, focuses on rodeo riders and their dangerous lives. After suffering a near-fatal head injury, Brady (real-life rodeo rider Brady Jandreau) is itching to get back in the saddle, despite doctors' warnings to take it easy. He is also frightenedhis best friend Lane (permanently disabled ex-rodeo rider Lane Scott) is a constant reminder of what might await Brady once he returns to riding.. Director Zhao brilliantly combines documentary (Brady's family is played by his real-life family) and fiction for a poetic immersion in the rodeo milieu that is as genuine as it is emotionally affecting. Winner of ten awards on the international film festival circuit.

    'Zhao's sense of lyricism and emotional rhythm is all her own. There are moments that soar.. and others.. that are quietly wrenching.'- Emily Yoshida, Vulture

  • The Shape of Water
    For all screenings:
    In 1963, Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is working as a janitor at a US government laboratory. One night, a strange, amphibious creature is wrangled into the facility. Elisa is more fascinated than frightened. What scares her more is the threat posed by the federal agent (Micheal Shannon) in charge. Cruel and self-serving, he seems convinced the surest way to handle the mysterious creature is to kill it. With the help of her neighbour Giles, her co-worker Zelda, and a sympathetic scientist, Elisa hatches a plan to save the creature's life, at the risk of her own.

    Strange marvels abound in The Shape of Water. Marshalling remarkable performances together with stunning production design, fluid camerawork, and Alexandre Desplat's gorgeous score, director Guillermo del Toro delivers unforgettable film poetry. Movie fans will luxuriate in the wealth of references to classic monster movies and mid-century thrillers. Some will note the film's layered subtexts of social critique. But none of that is necessary to enjoy the pure pleasure of watching a master filmmaker working at the height of his powers and exploring the world he most loves.

  • Sun 22 Apr 16:15 Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri Tickets
  • Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
    For all screenings:
    Strong, brave, fed up with bullshit, and desperate for justice, Mildred (Oscar-winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move: putting up three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Woody Harrelson), the town's revered chief of police. When his second-in-command, Officer Dixon, an immature mother's boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing's law enforcement escalates.

    Martin McDonagh has created a darkly comic drama that is smart, narratively unpredictable, and filled with superb performances. On its surface, Three Billboards.. is a film about grief, forgiveness, anger, and resilience. Yet McDonagh layers in myriad observational moments about racism, war, sexism, and a deeply divided society, all captured in this fictional Missouri town.
