- Cast: Frank Sidebottom, Johnny Vegas, Ross Noble, John Cooper Clarke
Biopic of Chris Sievey, who found fame on Saturday morning kids TV shows in the 80s and 90s as the bizarre Frank Sidebottom, a character with a bulbous papier-mâché head. Sullivan’s film pays affectionate tribute to Sievey’s artistic spirit, promotional powers and ceaseless creativity without failing to count the cost on his family life.

Thu 25 Apr
Told through first-hand accounts, powerful archive and black box footage from the time and pulse-quickening underwater reconstructions, Last Breath is a documentary thriller unlike any other. A routine maintenance dive on a North Sea oil well turns into a fight for survival as a computer error aboard the commercial ship The Topaz sends the boat drifting away from its dive site, dragging along everything attached to it: including commercial diver Chris Lemons. With his diving umbilical cord snagged on a underwater structure and the full weight of the 8,000 tonne ship strained against his lifeline, Chris becomes stranded on the seabed with only 5 minutes of breathing gas and rescue 30 minutes away… Last Breath is a truly incredible real life story and race-against-time thriller which will leave audiences gasping.

- Written by: Monty Python
- Cast: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin
The Gospel According to Monty Python offended a whole host of religious dominations upon its initial release, which rather obscured the fact that behind the controversy lay their most sustained humour to date. A host of very funny setpieces and smart cameos from all the team climaxes in a rather fetching musical crucifixion.
