    For all screenings:
    The story of Carlos Acosta, the Cuban-born dancer who, after becoming the first black person to be invited to join England’s Royal Ballet, went on to global stardom, is brought to glorious life in Icíar Bollaín’s flamboyantly inventive amalgam of dance, documentary, and fiction. Beginning with Acosta himself choreographing a new routine that looks back to his childhood, the film then flashes back to show the poverty-stricken early days of the young would-be football star (a brilliant turn by 10-year-old Edilson Manuel Olbera Nuñez in his first role) on the streets of Havana. When his hip-hop moves score him a position at a dance school, young Carlos is not impressed, but his father, Pedro (another wonderful performance from a first-time actor, real-life choreographer Santiago Alfonso), sees the possibilities for his son and pushes him to succeed…

    ‘As heartbreakingly perfect as it is sui generis, this ambitious musical, drama, dance and documentary hybrid… is built on two commanding and deeply empathetic turns from Keyvin Martínez (as the early twenties, increasingly famous Acosta) and Edilson Manuel Olbera Nuñez (as the dancer in his poverty-stricken Cuban childhood)… 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.’—Kevin Maher, The Times

  • Queen of Hearts
    For all screenings:
    Equally scandalous in subject matter and presentation, sophomore director and co-writer May el-Toukhy’s drama paints a picture-perfect canvas of bourgeois Danish society in the form of high-achieving lawyer Anne (the always note-perfect Trine Dyrholm), her doctor-husband, Peter (Magnus Krepper), their two daughters, and the family’s seemingly lovely lifestyle. El-Toukhy then explodes our preconceptions by having Anne start an affair with her stepson (Gustav Lindh), seemingly just because she can…

    ‘A potent Danish drama that peels back the veneer of an ultra-civilized Scandinavian lifestyle to take a dark look at some very out-of-bounds behaviour. May el-Toukhy maintains an impressive grip on the tone of an insidious tale that delineates the transformation of a successful professional woman's personal conduct from supremely self-confident to malevolently manipulative and beyond… This is Dyrholm's show and she gives it her all, emotionally and physically, delivering a full account of a woman who does whatever she wants because she believes she can get away with it.’—Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter

  • 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

  • An Elephant Sitting Still
    For all screenings:
    When the world lost the 29-year-old novelist and film director Hu Bo to suicide in 2017, shortly after the completion of this, his only feature film, it was a major loss for world film culture. The evidence for that sentiment is on display in this gritty, honest, and very angry drama, which traces the interconnected lives of four people in China’s industrial north over the course of a single day. Wei Bu (Peng Yuchang) is a teenage boy bullied at school and treated cruelly by his father; Wei has a crush on Huang Ling (Wang Yuwen) despite the fact that she is having an affair with one of her teachers; the elderly Wang Jin (Li Congxi) is facing the prospect of being forced by his family to move into a nursing home; and Yu Cheng (Zhang Yu) is a miserable local hood and brother to one of Wei’s bullies. Yes, Hu takes his characters to some dark places, but in the process, he fashions a film of extraordinary beauty that is kept alive by a constantly moving camera and a profound sense of empathy. One can only shake one’s head in sadness, knowing that there will be no more films from this gifted artist.

    ‘One of the great achievements of recent cinema… Hu builds an intricate grid of conflict-riddled connections among the movie’s main characters to form a bleak panorama of degradation… Hu’s volatile, roving long takes pursue the characters to the deepest corners of their explosive despair and find a core of fierce resistance; his view of social breakdown rises to a total vision of existential rage.’—Richard Brody, New Yorker

  • Carmen & Lola
    For all screenings:
    Coming of age as a lesbian in a closed, conservative, and decidedly patriarchal culture—in this case, amongst the Romani people, or gitano, as they call themselves, living outside of Madrid—is a difficult thing at the best of times, and Arantxa Echevarría’s fiction debut handles this subject matter with grace and poignancy. Encouraged by her mother, 16-year-old Lola (Zaira Morales) is a bit more outward-looking than the majority of her fellow Roma, most of whom, like her father, are deeply suspicious of any contact with the outside world. Lola is secretly beginning to identify as lesbian, and when she meets the sexy Carmen (Rosy Rodriguez), someone already promised as a teen bride to another gitano, love hesitantly blossoms—but at what cost? Echevarría has made a heartfelt film that is both moving and bracingly honest.

    ‘Buoyed by sympathetic performances by the cast and a credible evocation of life in Madrid’s scruffy satellite towns[, and] drawing on the talents within the local Roma community, the film features lashings of terrific performances featuring flamenco-Roma style music, especially in the scenes set in the local Catholic church, where the flock praise Jesus with acoustic guitars and harmonic vocals.’—Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter

    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.

  • Tolkien
    For all screenings:
    The man known as the ‘father of modern fantasy literature’, who gifted us the epic sagas The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings—we are, of course, talking about the South African-born but thoroughly British J. R. R. Tolkien—is given the full biopic treatment in Dome Karukoski’s (Tom of Finland) well-realised period piece. Nicholas Hoult (The Favourite) embodies the fledgling academic and writer during his the formative years in which he finds friendship, courage, and inspiration with a group of co-writers and artists at university. Together they endure love and losses, and the brotherhood grows stronger over the years, just like Tolkien's heady relationship with his beloved Edith (Lily Collins). But when the First World War breaks out, the brotherhood threatens to fall apart… Drawing on his experiences and his academic study, he is inspired to create the characters and locations—Middle Earth—that have dazzled generations.

  • Camino
    For all screenings:
    The ‘Camino’ of the title is the Camino de Santiago (aka the Way of Saint James), the legendary Christian pilgrimage route that extends from various points in France to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, northern Spain. One day more or less out of the blue, director Martin de Vries, in his early 60s at the time, said to himself, ‘I’ve got to do this’. In short order—and with minimal preparation—he set out from Le Puy-en-Velay (near Lyons), with smartphone and selfie stick in hand, over the mountainous route across France and through the Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela, a distance of some 1,600 kilometres. It took him 70 days…

    ‘Yes, I hear you thinking: [85] minutes of French and Spanish landscapes at walking pace must place a lot of pressure on the subject to hold the viewer’s interest. But de Vries does find a way to tell a story, allowing the film to transcend the realm of mere holiday footage to something more profound… [By the end,] it’s as if the selfie, in which one’s ego generally plays a leading role, has finally lost its purpose and has turned into the mirror he realises he has been looking for all along. That is what eventually gives the pilgrim’s route the divine allure it is known for.’—Chris Frieswijk, Cineuropa

  • Untouchable
    For all screenings:
    With precision, empathy, and intelligence, director Ursula MacFarlane recounts the ignominious fall of film producer Harvey Weinstein by giving voice to the women he victimized, assaulted, and raped (allegedly). Going all the way back to 1978, when former Weinstein employee Hope D’Amore, onscreen here, was assaulted by her then boss, the film lets both the famous—Rosanna Arquette, Paz de la Huerta—and not-so-famous tell there stories. It also puts former Miramax and The Weinstein Company employees on the spot about what they knew and why his behaviour was allowed to continue for so long. The cumulative impact of all of this makes Untouchable a necessary and vital document.

    ‘Weinstein was above the law. He was, so to speak, “Untouchable.” In her powerhouse documentary of the same name, director Ursula Macfarlane turns that word against Weinstein, empowering his accusers while also holding those who’d been complicit in his crimes accountable… Macfarlane pulls no punches, doing a fair but unflinching job of letting those he once dominated share their narrative. That they do so on camera makes what they have to say that much more impactful, and Macfarlane does their testimony justice, delivering a hard-hitting documentary that speaks truth to power.’—Peter Debruge, Variety
