Beauty And The Beast (2017) Director Bill Condon (PG)

Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" is a live-action re-telling of the studio's animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. "Beauty and the Beast" is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle's enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast's hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar (R) winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle's eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston's long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe (R) nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award (R) winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.

A Quiet Passion (PG13) Dir Terence Davies 2016

Cynthia Nixon delivers a triumphant performance as Emily Dickinson as she personifies the wit, intellectual independence and pathos of the poet whose genius only came to be recognized after her death. Acclaimed British director Terence Davies (House of Mirth, The Deep Blue Sea) exquisitely evokes Dickinson's deep attachment to her close knit family along with the manners, mores and spiritual convictions of her time that she struggled with and transcended in her poetry.

In the late 1940s, Prince Seretse Khama of Bechuanaland is studying law in Britain. There, the prince falls in love with a white British clerk, Ruth Williams, and they plan to marry.  Nothing prepares them for the diplomatic firestorm and domestic political tumult their love would spark.  The international opposition is more unyielding from the British holding their land as a protectorate and fearful of South Africa's racist backlash to this affront to their apartheid domination. Against all odds, King Khama and Ruth must struggle to maintain their love and help their people in a land that would become the Republic of Botswana.

Memories of his early life eventually fade, until a Proustian flash back, when a plate of jelabies at a party, initiates a longing to trace his original Indian family.

This is perhaps the most beautiful Docudrama we have ever shown.  The story defies 2,000 years of tradition, when 13 year old Aisholpan Nurgaiv inspires all around her with her skill, humour and persistence. This is both an incredible coming of age story and a reminder that we all should dream big. In the film, Aisholpan and her family introduce us to the incredible culture and tradition of the Kazakh nomadic herding people who live in the Altai Mountains region of western Mongolia, basically on the border of Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and China.  Prepare to have your breath taken away........

The story of Chesley Sullenberger, an American pilot who became a hero after landing his damaged plane on the Hudson River in order to save the flight's passengers and crew.  

If there's one thing you can count on Clint Eastwood doing well, it's directing an emotionally heartfelt story. Sully continues Eastwood's success by giving us probably the most human drama of 2016.  Starring Tom Hanks this is a brilliant film of how a man can become a hero by just doing his job.

Early summer in a village in Northern Turkey. Five free-spirited teenaged sisters splash about on the beach with their male classmates. Though their games are merely innocent fun, a neighbour passes by and reports what she considers to be illicit behavior to the girls' family. The family overreacts, removing all "instruments of corruption," like cell phones and computers, and essentially imprisoning the girls, subjecting them to endless lessons in housework in preparation for them to become brides. As the eldest sisters are married off, the younger ones bond together to avoid the same fate. The fierce love between them empowers them to rebel and chase a future where they can determine their own lives in Deniz Gamze Ergüven's debut, a powerful portrait of female empowerment.

In this reimagining of the classic collection of stories by Rudyard Kipling, director Jon Favreau uses visually stunning CGI to create the community of animals surrounding Mowgli (Neel Sethi), a human boy adopted by a pack of wolves. The appearance of a villainous tiger named Shere Khan (voiced by Idris Elba) forces Mowgli's guardian, the panther Bagheera (Ben Kingsley), to shepherd the child to safety in the "man village." Along the way, the boy meets an affable, lazy bear named Baloo (Bill Murray), as well as a snake with hypnotic powers (Scarlett Johansson) and an orangutan (Christopher Walken) who wants to harness the power of fire.

As part of the BFI Shakespeare Anniversary Festival 2016 we are showing this remarkable Leonard Bernstein musical.  Shakespeare's ROMEO & JULIET provides the underlying story where the Gangs of New York City replace the feuding families of Verona.  
The songs have become legendary and the dance numbers are easily the most energetic and dynamic ever caught on film, marking a turning point in the history of the musical genre, with songs and recitative becoming seamlessly incorporated within the screenplay/script.   It was (partially) shot on location in NYC, helping the atmospheric color and vitality of this iconic classic film.
If only we could have found a Sing-a-long version!

The Lady in the Van (12A) Dir Nicholas Hytner (2015) - SORRY NOW SOLD OUT

This film tells the true story of the relationship between Alan Bennett and the singular Miss Shepherd, a woman of uncertain origins who 'temporarily' parked her van in Bennett's North London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years.

 

"Lady in the Van" has been given 5 stars by all the major film critics, and promised to bring Oscar and BAFTA nominations for Dame Maggie Smith (now as well known in the USA as the UK, for her Downton Abbey role).  The combination of Alan Bennett's screenplay, Maggie Smith's acting alongside Alex Jennings (who looks more like Alan Bennet than Alan Bennet) and the brilliant direction of Nicholas Hytner, this looks to be this year's "Philomena".  Ticking all the boxes of Best UK Films - it’s parochial, sweet and clever British comedy, delivering everything its title so bluntly promises.

PALIO (15) Directed by Cosima Spender 2015 (Subtitles)

Twice a year the Italian city of Siena goes crazy for the oldest horse race in the world: the Palio. Not your average race: strategy, bribery and corruption play as much a part as the skill of the riders. Horses are allocated by lot four days prior to the race. This is when the madness truly begins. In the eye of the storm stand the jockeys. Loved and loathed by the districts they represent, they forge alliances and make deals promising large cash sums to try and get the best start. Legendary rider Gigi Bruschelli has won 13 Palios in 16 years and is accused by his critics of monopolizing the race. He works the system, paying off younger jockeys and fixing the race with average horses. Two races away from beating the world record, Bruschelli will do anything to win. But one jockey stands in his way, his former trainee, a handsome young Sardinian, Giovanni Atzeni, who is quietly determined to challenge his old mentor. Less interested in bribes and collusion, he rides for the love of the race. PALIO is the thrilling story of a young 'outsider' keen to break in to the dangerous but lucrative race and the corrupt 'insider' who has manipulated the city of Siena for a decade.

Their passionate and dramatic battle is an epic and cinematic tale of Italian life in microcosm.

This film is in Italian with English Subtitles.

This means maintaining all the secrets and lies of families, and Gordy finds the only people he really gets on with are Doug’s young children. Very impressive and likable stuff, sending you home laughing.

The Theory of Everything is the story of the most brilliant and celebrated physicist of our time, Stephen Hawking, and Jane Wilde the arts student he fell in love with whilst studying at Cambridge in the 1960s. Little was expected from Stephen Hawking, a bright but shiftless student of cosmology, given just two years to live following the diagnosis of a fatal illness at 21 years of age. He became galvanized, however, by the love of fellow Cambridge student, Jane Wilde, and he went on to be called the successor to Einstein, as well as a husband and father to their three children. Over the course of their marriage as Stephen's body collapsed and his academic renown soared, fault lines were exposed that tested the lineaments of their relationship and dramatically altered the course of both of their lives.

GONE GIRL (18) 2014 Directed by David Fincher

Fincher’s film Gone Girl, is based closely on Gillian Flynn’s best-selling 2012 novel which used a page-turning plot line – the sudden disappearance of a smart, pretty, married woman called Amy Elliott-Dunne (Rosamund Pike) – to unpick the modern mania for presenting a perfected version of ourselves to others, even as the truth roils and bubbles underneath.

But this story becomes something even wilder and yet perversely also more controlled – a neo-noir thriller turned on its head, where the homme, rather than the femme, has the fatale aura, and what comes out of the past only serves to further cloud the murky present.  

Rosamund Pike's performance earns BAFTA and ACADEMY nominations.  

Please be aware this film is Certificate 18.

Turing's team, including Joan Clarke (Keira Knightley), analyze Enigma messages while he builds a machine to decipher them. Turing and team finally succeed and become heroes, but in 1952, the quiet genius encounters disgrace when authorities reveal he is gay and send him to prison.

Multiple nominations for BAFTA and the ACADEMY have put this film at the top of the must see list.

Tickets £4 will be available at the "Mr Turner" screening March 18, or from March 19 from Shakespeare House Gallery, Dedham High Street or online at  CINEMA & TICKETS on the green banner at the top of this page.
