  • 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

  • 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

  • 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
  • Tue 02 Jul 14:00 Apollo 11 Read more Order tickets directly
  • Apollo 11
    For all screenings:
    Using spectacular, never-before-seen footage from the NASA vaults (some originally shot in 70mm), director and editor Todd Douglas Miller has pieced together an outstanding documentary that re-lives one of the seminal moments in the lives of everyone over 55 years old: the amazing, near-unfathomable journey to the moon that culminated with Neil Armstrong exiting the lunar module and setting foot on the lunar surface, on July 20, 1969. Even though it took place almost exactly 50 years ago, the momentous voyage seems to leap off the screen as if it were happening right now, courtesy of the immediacy, clarity, and overall awesome quality of Miller’s artistry. If you weren’t around when the landing took place, be prepared to be thrilled; if you were, enjoy this formidable, thoroughly entertaining look back to a time when anything seemed possible…

    ‘A cool, meticulous, at times enthralling documentary… Apollo 11 has no narration, no talking heads, and so for 93 flash-cut minutes we’re simply gazing at these marvellous and inexplicable images of things that happened long ago. There’s a fantastic design to it, of course; the machines are like a heavy-duty form of magic, and the voyage comes off like clockwork. But what the images channel is the wonder of the unprecedented.’—Owen Gleiberman

  • 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

    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

  • Ramen Shop
    For all screenings:
    The son of a Japanese chef father and a Singaporean mother, Masato (Takumi Saitoh) works alongside his widowed dad in a popular ramen shop in Takasaki, Japan. Masato is an ace when it comes to Japanese cuisine, but he has little knowledge of Singaporean food and cooking styles. When his father unexpectedly dies and he is left adrift, Masato discovers a suitcase full of his long-dead mother’s Singaporean mementoes and a mysterious red book. In short order, he is off to Singapore to discover the story of his parents and his own Singaporean roots… Director Eric Khoo smartly uses Masato’s discovery of Singaporean cuisine as road map for the young man’s journey into his family’s past. In the process, we are treated to a delicious, warm-hearted look at the ties that bind while also being offered a culinary master-class in Singaporean cuisine. Don’t see this film on an empty stomach…

    ‘Not since Ang Lee’s Eat Drink Man Woman, a 1994 entry featuring more on-camera cooking than even Babette’s Feast, has a film explored the connection between food and family as powerfully as Ramen Shop… Fans of such food movies as Jiro Dreams of Sushi, Julie & Julia, and the aforementioned Eat Drink Man Woman and Babette’s Feast will want to add Ramen Shop to their cinematic menus and then head out for some ramen to discuss the recipe for “Singapore chili crab”…’—James Verniere, Boston Herald

  • 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.

    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.

    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

  • 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
