The story of a young black man growing up, struggling with his sexuality and neglected by his drug-addicted mother. Astutely judged and beautifully humane sophomore feature from Jenkins, with sublime work from the three actors playing the main character (Hibbert, Sanders, Rhodes) and fine support from Ali, Harris and Monáe. Terrific.

The Unknown Girl

  • 2016

  • 113 min
  • Directed by: Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Luc Dardienne
  • Cast: Adèle Haenel, Fabrizio Rongione, Olivier Gourmet

Jenny (Haenel) is a brisk, kindly GP beloved of her patients. After a rare moment of carelessness, she is compelled to investigate the death of a young black woman. Haenel is compelling, and the story has plenty of resonance, but the surprisingly conventional narrative doesn't quite add up and it's worthy rather than inspired.

Curzon Mayfair

There's been a Curzon Cinema on this Mayfair site since 1934, but it wasn't until the 1940s, when the lease was acquired by the Wingate family, that the cinema began to get a reputation as one of London's top arthouse cinemas, showing foreign language films in comfortable surroundings. The current building dates from 1966 and has two auditoriums, one with 311 seats and the other with 101, and it hosts at least a dozen premieres every year.

The cinema is served by the 14, 19, 22, 36, 38, 73, 82 and 137 bus routes (stop outside Hilton Park Lane) and the Green Park and Hyde Park Corner tube. The nearest NCP car park is in Carrington Street.
