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.

Indignation

Indignation
  • 2016
  • US
  • 110 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James Schamus
  • Cast: Logan Lerman, Sarah Gadon, Tracy Letts

Ohio, 1951: Marcus (Lerman) is a young Jewish man attending a liberal college, where he meets Olivia (Gadon), a magnetic, troubled woman whose advances attract and also guilt-trip him. This deliberately low-key drama about sex and religion benefits from Schamus's refined storytelling, making it the best Philip Roth adaptation in decades.

La La Land

La La Land
  • 2016
  • US
  • 126 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Damien Chazelle
  • Cast: Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, J.K. Simmons

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.

  • 2016
  • US
  • 135 min

  • Directed by: Kenneth Lonergan
  • Cast: Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Lucas Hedges, Kyle Chandler, Gretchen Mol

Lee (Affleck) is a carefree small-town guy who, when his brother dies, is given the job of raising his nephew (Hedges). A masterful blend of high drama, quirky characterisations and incidental detail, with a soulful, heartbreaking turn by Affleck at its core.

Metropolitan Opera: Roméo et Juliette
  • 2014

A Monster Calls

A Monster Calls
  • 2016
  • Spain/UK/US
  • 108 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: JA Bayona
  • Cast: Sigourney Weaver, Felicity Jones, Toby Kebbell, Lewis MacDougall, Liam Neeson

Twelve-year-old Conor (MacDougall) has a mother (Jones) who's battling cancer and a father (Kebbell) who's walked out; then a yew-tree-shaped monster with Neeson's voice comes into his life. Coming-of-age tearjerker with a sometimes thin story, but fine performances from Jones and MacDougall.

The Night of the Hunter

The Night of the Hunter
  • 1955
  • US
  • 93 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Charles Laughton
  • Cast: Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters, Lillian Gish

Mitchum is unforgettable in this atmospheric tale (sadly Laughton's only film as director) in which he plays a psychotic priest chasing two children for the money stolen by their father. James Agee's script and Laughton's stark monochrome visuals mark out an allegorical conflict between good and evil but there's plenty haunting imagery to make this a mesmerising cinematic experience.

Silence

Silence
  • 2016
  • US / Taiwan / Mexico
  • 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.

Troublemaker Jyn Erso (Jones) and Rebel intelligence officer Cassian Andor (Luna) lead a rag crew across the galaxy to make contact with Death Star chief engineer Galen (Mikkelsen), Jyn's dad. This is Star Wars from the trenches, with sensational battle scenes and great performances from Jones and Luna.

Storks

Storks
  • 2016
  • US
  • 89 min
  • U
  • 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.

Sully: Miracle on the Hudson

Sully
  • 2016
  • US
  • 96 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Clint Eastwood
  • Cast: Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, Laura Linney

The story of pilot Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger (Hanks), who became an unassuming hero in 2009 after successfully ditching a US Airways Airbus 320 on the Hudson River. Eckhart gives strong support as co-pilot Jeff Skiles but the film belongs to Hanks, whose understated performance, with the skilful re-enactments of the crash, make for riveting drama.

Refreshments are available at the Dining Room.

All areas of the building are accessible by wheelchair and adapted toilet facilities are available.
