Spitfire – Film Night

£6 (£5 concessions)

PG – documentary 1hr 39mins

Friday 7th September

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5913184/?ref_=nv_sr_5

Credited with changing the course of world history, this is the story of the Spitfire – told personally in the words of the last-surviving combat veterans.

With breath-taking aerial footage from the world’s top aviation photographer John Dibbs and rare digitally re-mastered, archive footage from the tumultuous days of the 1940’s, when her power in the skies was unrivalled; all combined with a specially commissioned score by composer Chris Roe and an incredible soundscape of the famous Merlin engine, which makes this a striking and poignant film.

Narrated by Charles Dance.

THE HATTON GARDEN JOB

2017   Action/Crime/Thriller

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5351458/?ref_=nv_sr_1

Friday 5th October  

£6 (£5 concessions)

93 mins   Rated 15

 

Over the Easter weekend in 2015, a small team of experienced and elderly burglars broke into the basement vaults at The Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Company and stole millions of pounds in gold, cash and jewellery.  The incident has been called the “largest burglary in English history.”

“Director Ronnie Thompson’s involving and likeable enough 2017 crime thriller . . . [is] too much of a lightweight caper.  Nevertheless, the film grows on you, largely because of the fascinating true story, the low-life crime detail and, especially, the quirky, appealing performances of David Calder, Larry Lamb and Phil Daniels.”  Derek Winnert

 

“Though the pace is slow to pick up, unaided by distracting elevator-style music, the unfolding action of the breaking and entering is gripping and suspenseful when it matters; it’s tense despite the audience’s knowledge of the eventual outcome. This momentum carries the film through to the end with a satisfying climax.”  The Upcoming

THE GUERNSEY LITERARY AND POTATO PEEL PIE SOCIETY

FILM & FOOD EVENING

Friday 2nd November

£11 ( £10 Concessions)

2018   Drama/History/romance,  124 mins   12A

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1289403/?ref_=nv_sr_1

A writer (Lily James) forms an unexpected bond with the residents of Guernsey Island in the aftermath of World War II, when she decides to write a book about their experiences during the war.

“If the film’s intriguing title gives you an appetite, take the leap and have a bite. Having the courage to reach for what you want is the essence of this engaging film that captures not only the imagination but also the heart. Adapted from the novel by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer, Four Weddings and a Funeral director Mike Newell uses his considerable skills to weave together a richly layered film that is both uplifting and moving. It encompasses a war story, a mystery tale and a love triangle, while instilling an enticing sense of place for its stunning Guernsey setting. Lily James shines as the protagonist, a writer searching for her milieu and direction in life. It’s delightful.”  Urban Cinefile

“The handsome period design and likeable performers ensure it remains modestly engrossing, with Penelope Wilton offering by far the sharpest contribution as a grieving widow.”  Radio Times

In a little Sicilian village at the edge of a forest, a 13-year-old boy vanishes. Luna, his classmate who loves him, refuses to accept his mysterious disappearance. She rebels against the silence and complicity that surround her, and to find him she descends into the dark world which has swallowed him up and which has a lake as its mysterious entrance.  In Italian with English subtitles

Co-directors Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza evocatively interweave the richness of fairy tales with the obscenity of Mafia control. Based on the 1993 kidnapping of 12-year-old Giuseppe Di Matteo, held by the Mafia for 779 days in the hopes of silencing his informant father, the film invents a classmate with a crush who refuses to sweep Giuseppe’s disappearance under the rug. Her bond with the kidnapped boy, manifested through fairy tale symbols — a forest, a cave, animals, a lake — seamlessly dovetails with reality, drawing to the surface the anguish of a lost life together with the disgraceful fact that we as a society allow ourselves not to be haunted by acts of inhumanity. Ghost Story deserves a conspicuous place on international art-house screens.”  Variety

“Cinematographer Luca Bigazzi masterfully conjures up the duality of nature as both a hostile environment of weeds, wires and stones and a magical forest filled with ferrets, owls and butterflies. A mysterious lake becomes the doorway to a hidden world where Luna envisions Giuseppe in captivity — but also a metaphysical space where his bones return to the earth.”  Hollywood Reporter

THE BOOKSHOP – Friday 7th December

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3127022/?ref_=nv_sr_1

2017   Drama,  113 mins   PG

Based on the novel by Penelope Fitzgerald.  It is 1959, and widowed Florence Green (Emily Mortimer) risks everything to open up a bookshop in the sleepy seaside town of Hardborough.  When she exposes the narrow minded townsfolk to the best literature of the day including Nabokov’s scandalizing “Lolita” and Ray Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451”, she gains a kindred spirit and ally in the figure of Mr Brundish (Bill Nighy), who is himself sick of the town’s stale atmosphere, but has to reckon with the hostility of the other shopkeepers and of self-appointed doyenne Mrs Gamart (Patricia Clarkson).

“Courage is the central theme of this delightful film about books, passion and dreams. . . Lovers of books and admirers of determination will embrace this enchanting film. I hope you will enjoy it, too.”  Urban Cinefile

“It’s the goodness in Florence and the pride with which she carries herself through the adversity of her meetings with a mean-minded bank manager and a killjoy town snob that gives the film charm. Bill Nighy does what Bill does best and teams with child actor Honor Kneafsey to reinforce the goodness in Florence. Spanish director Coixet brings a beautiful uniqueness to a quirky British setting without a whiff of predictability.”  A Sliver of Film
