Ivan's Childhood (Ivanovo Detstvo)

Ivan's Childhood (Ivanovo Detstvo)
  • 1962
  • USSR
  • 95 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Andrei Tarkovsky
  • Written by: Vladimir Bogomolov, Mikhail Papava
  • Cast: Nikolai Burlyayev, Valentin Zubkov, Yevgeni Zharikov, Stepan Krylov, Nikolai Grinko, Irma Raush

Gleaming new print of Tarkovsky's debut feature, now looking more impressive than ever. The narrative revolves around a teenage WW2 spy, travelling through the country behind enemy lines. Characteristically breathtaking imagery and an aching sense of spirituality springs naturally from this simple drama of childhood. It is all a far cry from the grandiose and metaphysical reach of this great filmmaker's later work. Essential viewing.

Jackie

Jackie
  • 2016
  • USA
  • 100 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Pablo Larrain
  • Cast: Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, John Hurt

Impressionistic, non-linear portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy, with an agonising, in-depth performance by Portman, who is gripping either while giving a shy television tour of the White House, or going to pieces in a bathroom. A mesmerising, technically virtuosic and remarkable reflection on celebrity, memory and the determined individual crafting history.

La La Land
  • 2016
  • US
  • 126 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Damien Chazelle
  • Cast: Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, J.K. Simmons

In Los Angeles, aspiring actress Mia (Stone) falls for jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling). Audaciously inventive homage to classic movie musicals, technically wonderful and joyously emotional, with Gosling as a goofy idealistic charmer and Stone showing the versatility, vulnerability and talent of a young Shirley MacLaine. Irresistible.

Lullaby

  • 60 min
  • Directed by: Donna Rutherford

Rutherford looks at family, ageing and the children she never had. Featuring interviews with other middle-aged women who never reproduced alongside Rutherford’s own narration, this event combines film and live performance to explore this emotionally loaded terrain. Fair Isle musician Inge Thomson has created an intricate soundscape of voices and music based on a series of lullabies (traditional and newly-penned).

Phantom Boy

Carols in the Chapel
  • 2015
  • France
  • 84 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jean-Loup Felicioli, Alain Gagnol
  • Cast: Marcus D'Angelo, Jared Padalecki, Vincent D'Onofrio

Leo (D'Angelo) is a seriously ill young boy whose illness has the side-effect that he can leave his body and fly over the city; he uses this to help an injured cop (Padalecki) tangling with a crime boss (D'Onofrio). Refreshingly dark tale from the directors of A Cat in Paris, sensitive but unsentimental.

Silence

Silence
  • 2016
  • US / Taiwan / Mexico
  • 161 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Martin Scorsese
  • Cast: Adam Driver, Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson, Tadanobu Asano

Scorsese's long-planned passion project, an adaptation of Shusaku Endo's 1966 novel about two 17th century Catholic priests (Garfield & Driver) who travel to Japan in search of their mentor (Neeson). Fervently told and unusually cerebral – if a little black and white – it's a work of courageous severity and contemplation.

The Young Offenders

The Young Offenders
  • 2016
  • Ireland
  • 15
  • Directed by: Peter Foott
  • Written by: Peter Foott
  • Cast: Alex Murphy, Chris Walley, Hilary Rose, Ciaran Bermingham

Teenage layabouts Conor (Murphy) and Jock (Walley) search for seven million euro's worth of stolen cocaine, in the hope of making their fortune. Charming and genuinely funny Irish comedy, playing on the emotional vulnerability of kids from broken homes, with plenty of knockabout comedy and superb work from newcomers Murphy and Walley.
