A Christmas Carol

CAST- Simon Russell Beale (King Lear), Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, Sherlock) , Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings), Carey Mulligan (Suffragette), Daniel Kayuula (Get Out), Leslie Caron (An American in Paris/Gigi) , Sian Phillips (I, Claudius)

“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!”

A Victorian family prepares a paper theatre for a performance of A Christmas Carol. The audience enters the imagination of one of the children and quickly, the cardboard stage transforms to reveal a magical world containing real dancers and stylised sets.  

The classic tale unfolds in a rich tapestry of highly absorbing, theatrical drama featuring sumptuous visual effects inspired by the techniques of early cinema. In a daring twist of format, characters are portrayed by dancers and voiced by an eclectic cast of the world’s most recognisable actors.

The mix of danced action and spoken narration brings fresh dimension to Dickens’ characters and poetic language, whilst remaining true to the beauty of the author’s original narrative.

Raging Bull

Director: Martin Scorsese. Starring: Robert De Niro, Cathy Moriarty, Joe Pesci. USA 1980. 129 mins.

Scorsese's extraordinary, compelling examination of the career of prizefighter Jake La Motta - and the destructive urges of the masculine psyche - progressing from his strutting days as unbeaten champion boxer in the 1940s to his pathetic degeneration into a fat slob in the late '50s. Centred around a physically and emotionally harrowing performance by De Niro, RAGING BULL is a film of near operatic intensity, a sympathetic, tragic portrait of a deeply unappealing man. To date, the summit of Scorsese's and De Niro's respective careers.
