Balloon

  • 2018
  • Germany
  • 2h
  • 15
  • Directed by: Michael Bully Herbig
  • Cast: Friedrich Mücke, Karoline Schuch, David Kross

Peter Strelzyk (Mücke), his wife Doris (Schuch) and their two children attempt to escape East Germany in a hand-sewn hot air balloon. Herbig adopts an old-fashioned, slightly sentimental approach but it’s an engrossing mixture of adventure yarn and methodical police procedural, with moments of pulse-racing tension.

  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • Directed by: Olivia Wilde
  • Cast: Skyler Gisondo, Kaitlyn Dever, Lisa Kudrow

Molly (Feldstein) and Amy (Dever) are proud to be brainiacs, but on their last day of high school they resolve to fit as much fun as they can into a single night. Wilde’s debut feature is zesty and confident with box-fresh writing, well-drawn characters and a swaggering hip-hop soundtrack; Feldstein, in particular, steps up to leading lady status.

Carmen & Lola

CinemaAttic Carmen & Lola | Alternative Valentine's Special Screening

The perfect Alternative Valentine’s plan for those who believe in a wider idea of love.

Proud to present the Scottish Premiere of Arantxa Echevarria's Carmen Y Lola, one of the hottest films in the festival circuit just now. A true love story between two young gypsy women in an environment where homosexuality is taboo.

The film scooped 8 nominations at the Goya Awards (Spanish BAFTAs) and received wide acclaim in Cannes, Palm Springs, Quebec & BFI ’s London Film Festival.

A profoundly honest first work by Arantxa Echevarria, the director works with nonprofessional actors to remind us what love is really about.

“Echevarría flings open the final closet that needs airing out in the country by broaching the subject of lesbianism in the Gypsy community."(Cineuropa)

Synopsis Carmen lives in a gypsy community in the suburbs of Madrid. Like every other woman she has ever met, she is destined to live a life that is repeated generation after generation: getting married and raising as many children as possible. But one day she meets Lola, an uncommon gypsy who dreams about going to university, draws bird graffiti and likes girls.

Casablanca

Casablanca
  • 1942
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michael Curtiz
  • Cast: Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid

You must remember this … Bogart being impossibly noble, Bergman torn between two lovers, Claude Rains playing both ends against the middle, devious Nazis, a fogbound airport, a piano-player tinkling that tune. A wonderful hill of beans.

Diego Maradona

Diego Maradona
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 2h 10min
  • Directed by: Asif Kapadia

Kapadia provides another documentary portrait of a fallen star, after Senna and Amy. If this one isn’t as moving or compelling as its predecessors, it still has enough emotional heft to make it more than a celebration of great goals.

  • 1h 41min

Urban malcontent Ricky (Dennison) reluctantly goes to the NZ countryside with foster aunt Bella (te Wiata) and her gruff husband Hec (Neill). When a tragic event prompts Ricky to run off, Hec goes after him, but the authorities assume that Hec's kidnapped Ricky. Simple, affecting comedy that builds into full-on action, with great chemistry between Neill and Dennison.

Kind Hearts and Coronets

Kind Hearts and Coronets
  • 1949
  • UK
  • 1h 46min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Robert Hamer
  • Cast: Dennis Price, Valerie Hobson, Joan Greenwood, Alec Guinness

Blacker than black Ealing comedy has a suave and sophisticated Price killing off an entire family tree (all played by Guinness) in order to move himself closer to the d'Ascoyne family title. Low-key cynicism and disarming callousness make it a true gem of British post-war cinema.

  • Directed by: Nisha Ganatra
  • Cast: Emma Thompson, Mindy Kaling, John Lithgow

Katherine (Thompson) is a seasoned talk show host who, when forced to hire new writing staff, takes on former chemical plant employee Molly (Kaling). Kaling’s script is peppy, good-natured and has a good grasp of the issues, and Thompson has her best role in years. Piquant and winning.

Paddington
  • 2014

  • 1h 35min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Julie Walters, Nicole Kidman, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi

The story of an illegal immigrant from Peru and his efforts to be integrated into British society. He's a bear, by the way. Whishaw imbues the CGI Paddington with immense charm, the rest of the cast are excellent and the exuberant direction and smart, knowing script make for a genuine delight.

Rocketman

Rocketman
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 2h 1min
  • Directed by: Dexter Fletcher
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard

This Elton John biopic, exec-produced by its subject, could have been a vanity project, but it’s a fun and cute fantasy musical; Egerton as John as exuberant and sympathetic, and the framing device is sensible. Hardly revelatory, but Fletcher does a good job and sprinkles some inventiveness. Classic songbook helps.

Sometimes Always Never

Sometimes Always Never
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 31min
  • Directed by: Carl Hunter
  • Cast: Bill Nighy, Jenny Agutter, Alice Lowe

Alan (Nighy) is a fastidious widower who joins his son Peter (Riley) at the seaside on family business. Fine performances, including an ever-excellent one from Nighy, can’t quite breathe life into Hunter’s Wes Anderson-ish mannerisms, in this gently melancholic but too studied comedy drama.
