The world's first feature-length animated film takes a story from '1001 Arabian Nights'. A rare screening of a film that almost disappeared forever, before a new negative was made from the one remaining print in the 1970s.

Middle-aged perfumer Vic Allen (Jean-Louis Trintignant) lives on the island of Jersey with his young wife Mélanie (Isabelle Huppert) and their daughter Marion (Sandrine Kljajic). Mélanie embarks on a string of extra-marital flirtations, all with her husband’s apparent approval, but mild-mannered, chess-playing Vic soon has murder on his mind.

Macbeth

Macbeth
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 113 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Justin Kurzel
  • Cast: Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, David Thewlis

Australian director Kurzel significantly trims Shakespeare's drama, placing the emphasis on brutal, bloody conflict and primal energy. The cast is impressive but Fassbender's warrior king has all the fury and impact of Pacino in his prime; all in all, an adaptation of raw, haunting power.

Sun 28 Aug

National Theatre Live: The Deep Blue Sea

National Theatre Live: The Deep Blue Sea
  • 180 min
  • 12A

Set in London in 1952, The Deep BlueSea is the story of Hester Collyer who attempts suicide following an affair with a former RAF pilot. Cracknell’s critically acclaimed new production stars Helen McCroy and Tom Burke.

Robinson Crusoe

Robinson Crusoe
  • 2016
  • 90 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Vincent Kesteloot/Ben Stassen
  • Cast: Ron Allen, George Babbit, Laila Berzins

In this forgettable animation, Robinson Crusoe (Lowenthal) lives on a desert island where his enemies are … two evil cats. A lacklustre script and dull storytelling make this one not worth taking the family to.

Sid and Nancy

Sid and Nancy
  • 1986
  • UK
  • 113 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Alex Cox
  • Cast: Gary Oldman, Chloe Webb

Alex Cox's scrappy biopic features outstanding performances from Oldman as the hapless, impressionable but oddly sympathetic Sid, and Webb as the desperately needy and self-destructive Nancy.

The Talented Mr. Ripley

The Talented Mr. Ripley
  • 1999
  • USA
  • 139 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Anthony Minghella
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law

In the 1950s, a penniless but ambitious young man Tom Ripley attracts the attention of elderly rich American, who hires him to bring his son, Dickie Greenleaf, back to the US. The spoiled young Greenleaf has settled in Italy for a 'prolonged' holiday with his fiancée on his father's expenses. Tom Ripley, who has never known such a luxurious life, sees an opportunity to join the world he has always dreamed of, but when Dickie grows tired of Tom’s constant presence he is ready to do anything to stay within the privileged circle.

Sun 28 Aug

The Wave

The Wave
  • 2016
  • Norway
  • Directed by: Roar Uthaug
  • Cast: Kristoffer Joner, Ane Dahl Torp, Eili Harboe

When part of a mountain in a Norwegian fjord slides into the water, a village is threatened with tsunami, but luckily there's a hunky geologist on hand to simultaneously understand what's going on and be emperilled by it. Despite clunky plotting, some powerful performances, expert cinematography and masterful CGI make Scandinavia's first disaster movie quite stunning.

What Have I Done To Deserve This?

What Have I Done To Deserve This?
  • 1984
  • Spain
  • 101 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Pedro Almodóvar
  • Written by: Pedro Almodóvar
  • Cast: Carmen Maura, Luis Hostalot, Ryo Hiruma

From the camera that brought you Women On the Verge …, an earlier, more surreal vision of desperation, sex and bizarre familial interactions in middle-class Spain. The central role is again played by a distracted Maura, this time as a housewife coping with her depression and her ghastly family by taking a wee snort of cleaning fluid with her prescribed amphetamines. Another gem.
