What’s showing today:
Finding Your Feet
When ‘Lady’ Sandra Abbott (Imelda Staunton) discovers that her husband of forty years is having an affair with her best friend, she seeks refuge with her estranged, bohemian, older sister Bif (Celia Imrie). Sandra couldn’t be more different to her outspoken, serial dating, free spirited sibling.
The Nile Hilton Incident
In Cairo, weeks before the 2011 revolution, Police Detective Noredin is working in the infamous Kasr el-Nil Police Station when he is handed the case of a murdered singer.
Upon realizing the involvement of Egypt’s power elite in the case, Noredin slowly changes sides to those who are defenceless against it. A political thriller based on a true story.
In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.
Special Event Cinema – UK Asian Film Festival: Sadho
In a harsh world where lives and bills change hands every day, a man who deals with the dead comes face to face with life in its purest form. A car accident suddenly brings Sadho, a lower-caste grave digger, face to face with something he couldn’t have possibly imagined – a new-born child, alive in miraculous circumstances. In a complex world where good and evil are two sides of the same coin, Sadho must make a choice that will define his life and another’s: whether to return the child to its parents or succumb to the wicked temptations of the world of human trafficking. Forced with the choice to keep the baby alive in a land rife with the evil of men, Sadho goes through many trials and tribulations in a journey of unparalleled emotion.
