Lloyd Vogel (Rhys) is a journalist assigned to interview beloved television host Fred Rogers (Hanks), arriving with cynicism but finding himself charmed and disarmed by Rogers’ unexpected complexity.

Emma
  • 2020

  • 2h 4min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Autumn de Wilde
  • Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Josh O'Connor, Gemma Whelan

Emma (Taylor-Joy) is a self-important matchmaker blinded by snobbery and youthful hubris. It’s in keeping with the vogue for complex, unapologetic heroines but the comedy is rather hit and miss and it looks great. Taylor-Joy’s alert performance makes Emma her own.

Exhibition on Screen: Pissarro – Father of Impressionism

Exhibition on Screen: Pissarro – Father of Impressionism
  • 2022
  • 1h 30min
  • Directed by: David Bickerstaff

Without Camille Pissarro, there is no Impressionist movement. He is rightfully known as the father of Impressionism.

It was a dramatic path that Pissarro followed, and throughout it all he wrote extensively to his family. It is through these intimate and revealing letters that this gripping film reveals Pissarro’s life and work.

Born in the West Indies, Pissarro found his passion in paint as a young man in Paris, and by the age of 43 had corralled a group of enthusiastic artists into a new collective. Their first show was scorned by the critics, but the group had acquired a new name: the Impressionists. For the next 40 years Pissarro was the driving force behind what has today become the world’s favourite artistic movement.

The Ashmolean Museum has a long tradition of excellence. As the UK’s first ever public museum (it opened its doors in May 1683) it houses a wonderfully rich collection, including the remarkable Pissarro archive. With exclusive access to most extensive archive of any Impressionist painter, and to the first major Pissarro retrospective in four decades, this film explores and highlights the enthralling and hugely important biography and output of an incredible artist.

Jojo (Davis) is a ten-year-old, obedient Nazi boy in WWII Germany whose mother (Johansson) is in the Resistance; Jojo reinvents Hitler (Waititi) as his oddball imaginary friend. Waititi ridicules Nazi ideology with aplomb, and as Jojo journeys towards enlightenment and reconnects with his humanity, it’s even rather beautiful.

National Theatre Live: Leopoldstadt

National Theatre Live: Leopoldstadt
  • 2020
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Patrick Marber
  • Written by: Tom Stoppard

Regarded as ‘Britain’s greatest living playwright’ (Times), Academy and Tony Award-winner Tom Stoppard’s critically acclaimed new play Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Leopoldstadt was the old, crowded Jewish quarter of Vienna, Austria. But Hermann Merz, a factory owner and baptised Jew now married to Catholic Gretl, has moved up in the world.

We follow his family’s story across half a century, passing through the convulsions of war, revolution, impoverishment, annexation by Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. A company of 40 actors represent each generation of the family in this epic, but intimate play.

Filmed live on stage in London’s West End, ‘Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece is magnificent’ (Independent) and should not be missed.

Please note that this performance has been filmed live in front of an audience and is not a live broadcast.

The Book of Dust - La Belle Sauvage

By Philip Pullman, adapted by Bryony Lavery. Directed by Nicholas Hytner.

Set twelve years before the epic His Dark Materials trilogy, this gripping adaptation revisits Philip Pullman's fantastical world in which waters are rising and storms are brewing.

Two young people and their dæmons, with everything at stake, find themselves at the centre of a terrifying manhunt. In their care is a tiny child called Lyra Belacqua, and in that child lies the fate of the future. And as the waters rise around them, powerful adversaries conspire for mastery of Dust: salvation to some, the source of infinite corruption to others.

Eighteen years after his ground breaking production of His Dark Materials at the National Theatre, director Nicholas Hytner returns to Pullman's parallel universe. Broadcast live from London's Bridge Theatre.

Drama about Richard Jewell (Hauser), the security guard who saved lives at the 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing, only to be accused of planting the bomb himself.
