Apollo 13

Apollo 13
  • 1995

  • 2h 20min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ron Howard
  • Cast: Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, Kevin Bacon

On 13 April 1970, an oxygen tank exploded on the service module of the Apollo 13 spacecraft, leaving three astronauts stranded some 200,000 miles from home. Howard's screen retelling is a big, epic adventure with a proudly patriotic stance. The space photography is just fantastic and the acting as good as it gets. Great entertainment, if a little rich in the apple pie department.

Billy Elliot

Billy Elliot
  • 2000
  • Uk
  • 1h 51min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Stephen Daldry
  • Written by: Lee Hall
  • Cast: Jamie Bell, Julie Walters, Gary Lewis, Jamie Draven

Billy (Bell) finds release from life's daily drudgery, through ballet dancing. As unlikely a leisure pursuit as that might be for a teenage boy growing up in the recession-hit County Durham of the 80s (and that's the point), it becomes young Billy's ticket out of hard times. Making his film debut, theatre director Daldry handles the political backdrop and dramatic foreground with equal assurance. The dance routines provide much of the film's humour and quite overwhelming feelgood factor.

Royal Ballet Live: Swan Lake

The Royal Ballet revives for the first time the recent new production of Tchaikovsky’s magnificent classical ballet. Production and additional choreography by Liam Scarlett and designs by John Macfarlane.

The Story:- Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman, Odette, he is enraptured. But she is under a spell that holds her captive, allowing her to regain her human form only at night.

Background:- Liam Scarlett’s glorious production of Swan Lake, new in 2018, returns for its first revival. While remaining faithful to the Marius Petipa/Lev Ivanov text, Scarlett’s additional choreography and John Macfarlane’s magnificent designs breathe new life into what is arguably the best-known and most-loved classical ballet. The entire Company shines in this eternal tale of doomed love, a masterpiece filled with iconic moments. Tchaikovsky’s first score for ballet soars with its symphonic sweep and combines perfectly with exquisite choreography from the grand pas de deux of Prince Siegfried and Odile to the swans at the lakeside. An intoxicating mix of spectacle and intimate passion, the overall effect is irresistible.
