The Handmaiden

The Handmaiden
  • 2016
  • Korea
  • 144 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Park Chan-Wook
  • Cast: Kim Tae-Ri, Kim Min-Hee, Ha Jung-Woo, Jo Jin-Woong

Thief Sook-Hee (Tae-ri) is hired to pose as a maid to wealthy heiress Hideko (Min-hee) as part of a con trick, but then maid and heiress discover mutual passion. This loose adaptation of Sarah Waters's Fingersmith is bravura filmmaking, but while the emotion between the two women is vibrant, an extended sex scene is exploitative, and the plot is too convoluted.

Teenager Simon (Verdet) has no sense of his own mortality, but when he’s fatally injured in a car accident, his mother (Seigner) has to decide what to do with his organs. Wonderfully credible and humane, with intriguing stories, an impressive cast and a reverence for life which can be felt in every frame.

Their Finest

Their Finest
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 117 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Lone Scherfig
  • Cast: Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy

London, 1940: fledgling screenwriter Catrin Cole (Arterton) joins the Ministry of Information’s Film Division and starts working on a propaganda movie. Scherfig wraps the war in a cosy cloak of nostalgia in a way that dulls moments of high anxiety, and despite a fine ensemble it’s all too muffled and mild-mannered.

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.
