The Children Act

The Children Act
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 1h 45min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Richard Eyre
  • Cast: Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci, Fionn Whitehead

Fiona (Thompson) is a High Court judge who finds herself becoming involved with a Jehovah’s Witness teenager (Whitehead) who refuses a blood transfusion for his leukaemia. Heavy-handed adaptation by McEwan of his own novel; not entirely convincing but Eyre brings out fine performances.

Lucky

Lucky
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 28min
  • Directed by: John Carroll Lynch
  • Cast: Harry Dean Stanton, David Lynch, Ron Livingston, Ed Begley Jr

Lucky (Stanton) is a committed atheist who takes a quiet pleasure in his daily routines, while coming to terms with his mortality. Debut director Lynch downplays the drama, resting the film on Stanton’s cantankerous, charming performance and his interactions with others. An elegant and moving meditation on life and death and a fitting memorial to its late star.

Matt Reed's Junk Box

The last Junk Box at The Point was a sell-out. The two previous were sell-outs. We've got a good idea of what's going to happen with this too!

This is how it goes…

One comedian, one box of miscellaneous items brought by the audience,  zero prep time, 100% improvisation and a whole load of gags.

JUNK BOX is exactly what it says on the tin. We're going to have a box  full of junk, Matt has to pull one item out at a time and make it  funny. Whether it be an old DVD, a rude-looking vegetable, a newspaper  cutting or a family heirloom - he'll find a way.

Bring something suitable (or unsuitable) along, sit back and enjoy an epically unpredictable improvised feast like nothing else you have ever seen!

Top tip: We can play any multi-media so movie clips or songs are fine.

Occupation

At the heart of a day celebrating the spirit of Teesside, Occupation shares the real life experiences of disabled people near you and celebrates people coming together, in spite of everything.

In a world of sanctions, forced treatment, and divided communities, people are being pushed to the edge.

An ex-soldier, a lost youth, a professional and a parent take their places around a monument at a disability rally, and shine a light on how austerity has affected disabled people and their families and what it means for generations to come. They are being pushed onto the streets to make their voices heard. ‘Human rights’ are ridiculed and people who would never before have dreamed of attending a protest are now gathering to speak out.

With an original music score by North East musician and composer Keith Mills, comic silent movies pastiches, and four fantastic actors who are accompanied by a 15 strong chorus from local community groups, Occupation is going to be a real community event.

Written by Pauline Heath and Directed by Vici Wreford-Sinnott

Please note: Both performances of Occupation will be BSL interpreted

Princess Charming

Some girls like football. Some boys like pink. Everyone likes a good story. Exploring gender stereotypes in a fun, questioning way, Princess Charming is a celebration of being exactly who you are. This show is for anyone who doesn’t like being told what to do and is about finding the courage to defy expectations.

Spun Glass Theatre's cabaret performers explore what really matters about being a boy and being a girl with dances, songs and skits created with children, for children. The theatre is transformed into a family friendly cabaret club full of laughter and sing-a-longs. At the end there is a chance to join in too as they give over the stage to the next generation of cabaret stars.
