  • Le Grand Bain
    For all screenings:
    Featuring some of the best French-language actors currently working—among them Mathieu Amalric, Guillaume Canet, Benoît Poelvoorde, and Jean-Hughes Anglade—actor-turned-director Gilles Lellouche’s feel-good comedy brings together a very mixed assortment of down-in-the-mouth middle-aged men who look to turn around their depressed lives by… forming an all-male synchronized swimming team (!) Under the tutelage of a pair of no-nonsense female trainers (Virginie Efira and Leïla Bekhti, both excellent), these sad-sacks slowly come together, amidst a sea of sight gags and verbal comedic jousting. Comparisons to The Full Monty are apt—both films share an abundance of heart and good intentions.

    ‘A surefooted crowd-pleaser with enough warmth and the committed talents of a stellar ensemble cast to fend off any sense of predictability… Sink or Swim [the English title] works because of a screenplay with some genuinely funny moments and a jaunty, confident approach from Lellouche that displays his sure comic timing and faith in the performers.’—Allan Hunter, Screen

    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

  • 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

  • Red Joan
    For all screenings:
    The impeccable Oscar-winner Dame Judi Dench plays the title character in Trevor Nunn’s dramatic take on the real-life story of the ‘granny spy,’ Melita Norwood, who, as an old-age pensioner in the 1990s, was arrested and charged with spying for Russia’s KGB. Joan Stanley (Dench) is a retired librarian content to paint and garden in her twilight years—until she is hauled in and accused of treasonous espionage. As ‘Red Joan’ tells her story, Nunn cuts to 1938 and we follow the smart and disenchanted physics whizz (here played by a very good Sophie Cookson) as her ideals and her top-secret job at a nuclear research facility lead her to betray her country. Dench and Cookson are very fine here, and the period sets, dramatic storyline, and gorgeous costumes make for an entertaining and illuminating show.

    ‘Sneakily absorbing… Unapologetically feminine… Red Joan resolves into a genuine study of an intelligent and ideologically budding young woman… Costumed to perfection by Charlotte Walter… Red Joan leaves a lasting impression… Judi Dench is flawless in bringing time-spanning depth to her melancholic character.’—Tomris Laffly, RogerEbert.com

  • 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.

  • 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

  • GAY Film Special: L'animale
    For all screenings:
    Dirt-bike rider Mati (a very good Sophie Stockinger), a tomboy growing up in a provincial Austrian town, likes to swill beer with her fellow (male) riders and is content to be one of the boys. As her high-school graduation approaches, questions of sex threaten to break up her band of bikers, especially when she becomes attracted to veterinarian Carla (Julia Franz Richter), for whom Mati works part-time… The success of Katharina Mückstein’s sensitive and thoroughly heartfelt coming-of-age story—beautifully shot and very much grounded in its rural Austrian locale—largely depends on Stockinger’s portrayal of Mati, and she more than rises to the occasion. She imbues the churning emotional landscape of adolescence and the difficulties inherent in coming to terms with one’s sexual identity with grace and vigour, making it no surprise that she was nominated for the best actress Austrian Film Award.

    ‘Well-crafted and appealingly cast… As played with both armor and vulnerability by the terrific Sophie Stockinger… Mati is a riveting central figure in a film whose exploration of queer identity and desire extends beyond the protagonist… There's a current of raw feeling here, an emotional electricity… L'Animale is consistently involving, never pushing too hard for its quiet intensity.’—David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

    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
