The Falling

The Falling
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 15
  • Directed by: Carol Morley
  • Cast: Maisie Williams, Florence Pugh, Monica Dolan, Maxine Peake

Lydia (Williams) and Abbie (Pugh) are close friends at a late 60s British girls' school. When Abbie loses her virginity and an unexpected tragedy occurs, Lydia starts fainting at random; then her symptoms start to spread through the other students. Dark, twisted and thoughtful exploration of female anxieties and emotions, sprinkled with wonderfully deadpan humour.

Far from the Madding Crowd

Far from the Madding Crowd
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Thomas Vinterberg
  • Cast: Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Juno Temple, Michael Sheen

Bathsheba Everdene (Mulligan) is a headstrong rural girl who inherits a farm and attracts the attention of three suitors; lowly Gabriel (Schoenaerts), well-to-do Boldwood (Sheen) and unscrupulous Troy (Sturridge). A straight-up take on Hardy's classic; Mulligan is a convincing Bathsheba and Vinterberg captures the brewing tragedy magnificently.

A Little Chaos

A Little Chaos
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 116 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Alan Rickman
  • Cast: Kate Winslet, Helen McCrory, Stanley Tucci

Sabine (Winslet), a widowed landscape gardener in 1682 Paris, is commissioned to work on the gardens of Versailles, but her friendship with the head gardener (Schoenaerts) provokes the fury of his scheming wife (McCrory). Crowd-pleasing period drama; what it lacks in historical accuracy it makes up for with fine performances, an engaging story and strong direction from Rickman.

My Name Is Salt

My Name Is Salt
  • 2014
  • Switzerland/India
  • 92 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Farida Pacha
  • Written by: Farida Pacha

Documentary on Indian salt producers and their yearly struggle to extract salt from the marshes of Gujarat, a process which is interrupted every year by the monsoon, which washes away all their unfinished labour. Without narration or onscreen conversation, the film has a hypnotic lyricism and becomes an uplifting affirmation of human resilience.

Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence

Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence
  • Sweden/Norway/France/Germany
  • 101 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Roy Andersson
  • Cast: Nisse Vestblom, Holger Andersson

A series of periodically connected vignettes depicting life in a near-colourless but highly characterful Gothenburg, linked together by the endeavours of novelty item salesman Sam and Jonathan (Westblom and Andersson). The third part of Andersson's 'living' trilogy is full of inspired surrealism, dark humour and compassion for its hopeless characters.
