  • Directed by: Sam Mendes
  • Cast: George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman, Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, Claire Duburcq, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch

Lance Corporals Schofield (MacKay) and Blake (Chapman) are given the job of hand-delivering a message to another unit, across the mud and misery of the trenches. It suffers from simplistic dialogue and flat characterisation, but it’s visually impressive and a respectable, heartfelt tribute to the sacrifice of WWI.

Anne Frank: Parallel Stories (12A)

Oscar-Winning Helen Mirren tells the story of Anne Fraank’s life through the pages of her world famous diary, a story that has made the tragedy of the Holocaust known to readers all over the world.

What would Anne’s life have been like had she survived Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen? What would have happened to the hopes and dreams she wrote about in her diaries? What could she have told us about persecution, about concentration camps? How would she have interpreted the reality of today, the rekindling of antisemitism and new racism? This emotive telling is entwined with the stories of 5 Holocaust survivors ( Arianna Szörenyi, Sarah Lichtsztejn-Montard, Helga Weiss and sisters Andra and Tatiana Bucci) who shared Anne’s same fate of deportation, suffering and were denied their childhood and adolescence, but were fortunately able to go on and live the life that Anne was denied. In addition to insight from historian and professors, Martina, one of the thousands of teenagers who feel close to Anne guides the audience through some of the key places in Anne’s short life, as well as those of the survivors. She wants to know about the story of the Jewish teenager who became a symbol of the greatest tragedy to befall the 20th Century. An evocative documentary which brings Anne’s tragic, yet incredible, story to life and explores why this story has become such a historic journal that holds such great relevance today.

‘Because Christmas. Well… That’s when they say people come home.’ Andy’s 43. He loves nostalgic TV and pints down the Kilburn High Road. His daughter Maya is 21.

Snowflake is an epic story about generational conflict, fathers and daughters, and whether we’re living in the best or worst of times… The critically-acclaimed festive hit by Olivier Award-winning and BAFTA-nominated Mike Bartlett (Charles III, Doctor Foster), directed by Olivier Award-winner Clare Lizzimore (Bull), makes its London debut at Kiln Theatre. ★★★★★ ‘A Christmas cracker. Warm and funny.’ The Times ★★★★ ‘A masterfully written generational clash. Rich in insight, poignancy and optimism.’ The Guardian Originally produced at The Old Fire Station, Oxford
