  • Girl
    For all screenings:
    Fifteen-year-old Lara (amazing newcomer Victor Polster), an adolescent girl trapped in a boy’s body, dreams of becoming a ballerina. Already undergoing hormone therapy and impatient with how long the conversion process is taking, she is loved by an extremely supportive father and brother—so supportive, in fact, that they have moved house, so she can attend one of Belgium’s most prestigious dance academies. This is the background to a profoundly humane drama from first-time writer-director Lukas Dhont, a young Flemish talent who, based on the evidence here, immediately moves to the forefront of European filmmaking. His visually magnificent portrait of adolescent angst and the transgender experience, coupled with Polster’s formidable performance, cannot fail to move you. Winner of the Camera d’Or, the International Critics’ Prize, and Best Actor in the Un Certain Regard program at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.
    ‘Dhont’s astonishing debut feature is a quietly powerful and nuanced trans rite-of-passage story… Co-written with Angelo Tijssens, this is an elegant and poised piece of transgender cinema with a breakout performance from Victor Polster… So much is said without words here, but the empathy the filmmaker has for all his characters speaks volumes.’—Katherine McLaughlin, Sight & Sound

  • The Old Man & the Gun
    For all screenings:
    Robert Redford has announced that this will be his final film as an actor, and, as such, David Lowery’s (A Ghost Story) charming, comedic caper, based on David Grann’s New Yorker profile of spiffy bank robber Forrest Tucker, serves as a fitting capper to a legendary career. Tucker was an amiable and quiet-spoken man whose last heist happened when he was 78 years old, completing a career that made him one of the most infamous bank robbers of the last century. That he was also one the world’s greatest prison escapologists—he escaped successfully 18 times and failed in 12 other attempts—adds another layer to this irresistible figure, and Redford draws on all his charm to tell the story of a lifelong criminal who even the police came to regard as a gentleman of style. Oscar-winner Sissy Spacek is winning as the last love-interest in Tucker’s life, while Casey Affleck, a begrudging smile of admiration crossing his face at Tucker’s sheer audacity, essays the police officer determined to capture him. The rest of the stellar cast includes Elisabeth Moss, Danny Glover, Tom Waits, Tika Sumpter and Keth Carradine. But, of course, the screen belongs to Mr. Redford…

  • Becoming Astrid
    For all screenings:
    Writer Astrid Lindgren’s most famous creation was the immortal Pippi Longstocking, the tenacious, free-spirited character beloved of children the world over. Pernille Fischer Christensen’s sparkling biopic focuses on Lindgren’s life between the ages of 16 and 21 in 1920s Sweden, and it shows Pippi’s individualism was not purely a product of the author’s imagination: Lindgren herself lived as radically as the fictitious Pippi—and paid a price for it… The energetic and decidedly nonconformist 18-year-old Astrid (a riveting Alba August, daughter of director Billie) breaks free of her early life of farmhand drudgery and goes to work as an intern for Reinhold Blomberg (Henrik Rafaelsen), the editor of local paper. Soon, she is pregnant by him, a married man…

    ‘Gorgeous… With a vibrant performance from fresh-faced Alba August as the lead, Becoming Astrid… makes one eager for more episodes from Lindgren's astonishingly unconventional life… Christensen takes to period filmmaking like a duck to water, and brings to it an uncommon energy. Erik Molberg Hansen’s dynamic, natural-light, widescreen lensing is full of visual interest and matches the sweep of Nicklas Schmidt’s lush string score.’—Alissa Simon, Variety

  • Cold War
    For all screenings:
    Shot in exquisite black and white, Pawel Pawlikowski’s (2013 Oscar-winner for Ida) searing love story begins in the late 1940s when pianist Wiktor (Tomasz Kot), recording folk music in the Polish countryside, meets singer Zula (a riveting Joanna Kulig). In short order, they are passionately in love, and she is a star, but the whims of their Soviet masters—and the wilfulness both of them harbour within themselves—makes for a long and bumpy, if musically glorious, road forward… Pawlikowski orchestrates this intense location- and time-jumping tale (based on his own parents’ story) like a master, using the music that both brings the couple together and drives them apart as a roadmap straight to the heart of their difficult love. It is no surprise that his gorgeous film captured the Best Director prize at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.
    ‘A terrific, smoky-cool love story… Cold War is a crisply controlled saga of romantic torture, glamour, forbidden border crossings and more betrayals than you can shake a black silk stocking at. To some degree, this is a rather serious movie about treacherous love in tough times. But you don’t have to hang that kind of weight on its shoulders to enjoy it…’—Stephanie Zacharek, Time

    For all screenings:
    Leave No Trace
    Will (Ben Foster), a war vet suffering from PTSD, and his 13-year-old daughter, Tom (Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie, a New Zealander who lights up the screen here), have been living off the grid in the wilds of Oregon since the death of Tom’s mother. Very careful to conceal all traces of their existence to any outsiders, the father-daughter duo seems to have a good life, foraging for food, living in tents, and surviving on the margins. What little money the need, they get through Will selling his medications to dealers living in a tent city. All seems perfect—until something changes… With this mesmerizing allegory for a damaged America, Debra Granik (Winter’s Bone) ascends to the loftiest heights of American filmmaking. Her achievement—at once soul-stirring, and deeply emotional—makes for one of the best films of the year.

    ‘Renowned for her empathetic portrayal of marginalised outsiders, Granik here conjures a low-key drama about cultural and generational divides that is alternately gripping and melancholic, but always shot through with the unmistakable ring of truth. The result is work of overwhelming, understated power that quite simply took my breath away.’—Mark Kermode, Guardian

  • Beautiful Boy
    For all screenings:
    Flemish filmmaker Felix van Groeningen’s (The Broken Circle Breakdown) first English-language drama is a ‘based-on-real-life’ tale featuring riveting turns from Steve Carell as journalist David Sheff and Timothée Chalamet as his son Nic, a meth addict slowly but surely destroying his young life. Sheff the elder does everything he can to understand what his son is going through—he even takes meth himself in an attempt to comprehend the drug’s hold on his son—and to help him break his addiction, but it all seems for nought as his son slides further and further down his black hole… Van Groeningen pulls no punches in his depiction of the devastating effects of addiction on both addicts and their families, and he elicits spectacular performances from Carell and Chalamet in the process. This is a tough, honest film you will not easily forget.

    ‘Strong, committed performances and the upsetting ring of reality anchor a highly-personal film which cycles through addiction, relapse and rehab in an episodic way, each high as inevitable as the low which follows… Chalamet is elusively liquid in the role of a child who sabotages his life without ever really being able to express why.’—Fionnuala Halligan, Screen

  • Wed 12 Dec 16:00 Mary Shelley Read more Order tickets directly
  • Mary Shelley
    For all screenings:
    The early life of Mary Shelley—author of Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus, daughter of pioneering feminist Mary Wollstonecraft and political philosopher William Godwin, and wife to Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley—is chronicled in director Haifaa Al-Mansour’s gorgeously designed biopic. As a teen, Shelley (perfectly played here by Elle Fanning) always felt she had something to contribute to the world of letters, but the patriarchal times in which she lived worked against her—until she met the handsome Percy Bysshe (Douglas Booth) and eloped with him, causing a scandal but opening up a new world… Al-Mansour traces her development as a woman and a writer all the way through to her conception and completion of Frankenstein—famously the result of a competition proposed by Lord Byron (Tom Sturridge) as to who could write the most frightening tale. This is a journey well worth taking that beautifully illuminates the Romantic and radical ideas of the time through the self-actualization of a remarkable woman.
    ‘Saudi director Haifaa Al-Mansour captures the pathos and pity of the Frankenstein story while eliciting an insouciant and poised performance from her star… [Fanning] always has an air of defiance and impregnable purity, delicate prettiness and granite integrity: someone untouched by any of the physical or moral squalor in which she happens to find herself…’—Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

  • Bohemian Rhapsody
    For all screenings:
    Finally, it’s here! After waiting for almost ten years—that’s when rumours of the film first began circulating—fans of the legendary rock group Queen and its even more legendary frontman Freddie Mercury get the big-budget biopic they deserve. The main focus is on the life and times of lead singer Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara), and Rami Malek, the star of Mr. Robot, embodies the singer to an uncanny degree. Mercury first met guitarist Brian May (played here by Gwilym Lee) and drummer Roger Taylor (Ben Hardy) in 1970, while he was attending Ealing Art College in London. By July of that year, they were performing under the name Queen, at Mercury’s suggestion, and the rest, as they say, is history.
    Bryan Singer’s dazzling film charts the early years—they didn’t become internationally famous until 1974—before thrusting us into the whirlwind lives of the megastars the group members became. Along the way, he slows down to detail the recording of what many consider to be the greatest pop single of all time, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, before culminating with the group’s show-stealing performance—spectacularly reproduced here—at the 1985 Live Aid concert, a greatest hits set that a 2005 music industry poll ranked as ‘the greatest rock performance of all time’. What a journey it was!

  • De Dirigent
    For all screenings:
    America, 1926: Twenty-four-year-old Antonia Brico (Christanne de Bruijn), who emigrated as a child from Holland to America with her parents (Annet Malherbe and Raymond Thiry), dreams of becoming a conductor, an ambition not taken seriously by anyone. Her piano teacher even advises her not to bother trying to enter the conservatory. With little left to lose, she returns to her homeland, where she begs the famous conductor Mengelberg (Gijs Scholten van Aschat) for conducting lessons. Mengelberg sends her to Berlin, where there more opportunities for a woman. After her two-year study at the Berlin State Academy of Music, she is given the chance to be the first woman to conduct the famous Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. The tension is almost too much for her when the love of her life offers her a choice between love or music. What will Antonia choose?

    De Dirigent (The Conductor) is based on the true story of the Netherlands’ Antonia Brico. At the end of the 1920s she was the first female conductor in the world to successfully conduct large symphony orchestras. Until recently, women barely managed to reach the top of the world-ranking list of leading conductors. This year, for the first time in Dutch history, the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra nominated a female chief conductor: Karina Canellakis.
