The Eagle Huntress

The Eagle Huntress
  • 2016
  • UK / Mongolia / US
  • 87 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Otto Bell
  • Cast: Aisholpan Nurgaiv, Daisy Ridley (voice)

Aisholpan Nurgaiv, a 13 year old girl, trains to become the first female in twelve generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter. Crowd-pleasing documentary which skirts some of the deeper issues, and Ridley's monotonous voice-over doesn't help, but only a cold heart would fail to be stirred by Aisholpan's game-changing story.

In Los Angeles, aspiring actress Mia (Stone) falls for jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling). Audaciously inventive homage to classic movie musicals, technically wonderful and joyously emotional, with Gosling as a goofy idealistic charmer and Stone showing the versatility, vulnerability and talent of a young Shirley MacLaine. Irresistible.

Three sisters in their 20s live together by the sea in the house they grew up in, but at their estranged father's funeral they take in their 13 year old half-sister Suzu (Hirose). Understated, quietly powerful and charming drama about sisterhood, adapted from Akimi Yoshida's manga Umimachi Diary.

  • 161 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Martin Scorsese
  • Cast: Adam Driver, Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson, Tadanobu Asano

Scorsese's long-planned passion project, an adaptation of Shusaku Endo's 1966 novel about two 17th century Catholic priests (Garfield & Driver) who travel to Japan in search of their mentor (Neeson). Fervently told and unusually cerebral – if a little black and white – it's a work of courageous severity and contemplation.

Storks

  • Directed by: Nicholas Stoller, Doug Sweetland
  • Written by: Nicholas Stoller
  • Cast: Andy Samberg, Katie Crown, Kelsey Grammer, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Jennifer Aniston, Ty Burrell, Danny Trejo, Stephen Kramer Glickman

Storks used to deliver babies, but now they run an Amazon-style delivery service; then ambitious stork Junior (Samberg) and colleague Tulip (Crown) have to deliver an actual baby. Colourful animation and some amusing voice work can't fix the gigantic plot holes, which will leave both parents and kids scratching their heads.

Trainspotting

Trainspotting
  • 1996
  • UK
  • 93 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Danny Boyle
  • Cast: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Kevin McKidd, Robert Carlyle, Kelly Macdonald

John Hodge's screenplay perfectly captures the desperate humour of Irvine Welsh's novel, keeping the episodic structure of junkie scenes for the first half before concentrating on Renton in London in the later stages. Fast and stylish direction, with a creative soundtrack and acting that's off-the-rails excellent, this cinematic blast from beginning to end shows a complex – and true – understanding of the lure and fatal consequences of drug-taking.

Situated directly above England's largest pub, the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse offers three screens and shows a range of classics and new releases, as well as having its own bar and cafe that's distinctly artier than the pub downstairs. You can enjoy a pint of the exclusive locally-brewed 'Reel Ale', and there are also regular film quizzes.

Cambridge Railway Station is a 20 minute walk away. From the station, walk straight on Station Road until you come to Hills Road (the end), then turn right. Walk along Hills Road until it becomes Regent Street and then Saint Andrew’s Street. The cinema is on the left above the pub ‘The Regal’.

Local buses stop on the Drummer Street bus depot, 2 minutes walk from the cinema. National Express coaches stop on the edge of Parkers Piece, 5 minutes walk from the cinema.
