With her laundromat teetering on the brink of failure and her marriage to wimpy husband Waymond on the rocks, overworked Evelyn Wang struggles to cope with everything, including tattered relationships with her judgmental father Gong Gong and her daughter Joy. She must also brace herself for an unpleasant meeting with Deirdre, the IRS auditor. However, as the stern agent loses patience, an inexplicable multiverse rift becomes an eye-opening exploration of parallel realities. Will Evelyn jump down the rabbit hole? How many stars are in the universe? Can weary Evelyn tap into newfound powers, and prevent an evil entity from destroying the thin, countless layers of the unseen world?

WHY BOOK THIS FILM? It won seven Oscars.

“An exuberant swirl of genre anarchy directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert. The filmmakers are happy to defy the laws of probability, plausibility and coherence. This movie’s plot is as full of twists and kinks as the pot of noodles that appears in an early scene. Spoiling it would be impossible. Summarizing it would take forever — literally! But while the hectic action sequences and flights of science-fiction mumbo-jumbo are a big part of the fun (and the marketing), they aren’t really the point. This whirligig runs on tenderness and charm.” The New York Times
“A pure firework display of technical bravado, wild invention, emotional storytelling, comedic genius, action mastery and outstanding performances, Everything Everywhere All At Once is everything cinema was invented for.” Empire

Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in the 1920s, The Banshees of Inisherin follows lifelong friends Padraic (Colin Farrell) and Colm (Brendan Gleeson), who find themselves at an impasse when Colm unexpectedly puts an end to their friendship. A stunned Padraic, aided by his sister Siobhan (Kerry Condon) and troubled young islander Dominic (Barry Keoghan), endeavours to repair the relationship, refusing to take no for an answer. But Padraic's repeated efforts only strengthen his former friend's resolve and when Colm delivers a desperate ultimatum, events swiftly escalate, with shocking consequences.

WHY BOOK THIS FILM? It’s black comedy at its best.

“McDonagh has never been one for neat resolutions, so it’s not giving anything away to say that we’re denied one here, too. This is no bromantic-comedy, and you really shouldn’t be hoping for any feel-good vibes (though there are plenty of laughs, if your humour verges on the dark side). But the film is engrossing and beautifully mounted, and is sure to not disappoint anyone who’s enjoyed McDonagh’s previous rough rides.” Empire
“This is a visually stunning and consistently witty film, which is unafraid to ask serious questions about life.” The Times

EMPIRE OF LIGHT (2022) (15)

 Sat 15th July 2023
Margate, England, 1980. As widespread unemployment and a rising wave of extremism plunge the seaside town and Margaret Thatcher's Britain into recession, depressed Hilary (Colman) sticks to her daily routine as the dutiful front-of-house manager at the Empire: a dying, golden-era movie palace. But movies can't keep lonely Hilary’s inner demons at bay. And then, bright-eyed new employee Stephen (Ward) suddenly enters
the picture, shaking Hilary's troubled existence. If the celluloid-scented power of cinema can pave the way for meaningful human connection, is there still hope for the once majestic movie theatre?

WHY BOOK THIS FILM? Who doesn’t love Olivia Colman?

“Empire of Light is a sweet, heartfelt, humane movie, which doesn’t shy away from the brutality and the racism that was happening in the streets outside the cinema: the Empire is showing Stir Crazy starring Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder, directed by Sidney Poitier – a message of diversity, if 1981 Britain cared to listen. It’s clearly a labour of love for Sam Mendes: love requited.” The Guardian “At its best, it is genuinely evocative, and while the script (by Mendes, his first as solo screenwriter) is patchy, it also wisely leaves the camera — plus Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ delicate, pensive score — to do a lot of the talking.” Empire

TÁR (2022) (15)

 Greywell Village Hall, Greywell, RG29 1BS
 Sat 19th August 2023
Renowned conductor/composer Lydia Tár (Cate Blanchett), the first female principal music director of the Berlin Philharmonic, is at the top of her game. As a conductor, Lydia not only orchestrates, she manipulates. As a trailblazer, she leads the way in the male-dominated classical music industry. As she prepares for the release of her memoir while juggling work and family, she is also willing to take up one of her most significant challenges: a live recording of Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 5. But her carefully constructed façade is about to crumble, revealing dirty secrets and the insidious, corrosive nature of power.

WHY BOOK THIS FILM? Cate Blanchett won a BAFTA for best leading actress.

“But what is most impressive about Blanchett is not the fortissimo moments of a totally uncompromising, self-possessed artist; it’s in the perfectly modulated performance that never judges or cajoles us to warm to Lydia but always commands our respect. She etches a woman fracturing under pressure in the tiniest increments. Frankly, it’s a thrill and a privilege to watch.” Empire
“One of the most grippingly brilliant films of the year.” Sight & Sound
