Happy End

Happy End
  • 2017
  • France / Austria / Germany
  • 1h 47min
  • Directed by: Michael Haneke
  • Cast: Jean-Louis Trintignant, Isabelle Huppert, Mathieu Kassovitz, Fantine Harduin

The story of a powerful, privileged bourgeois family living near Calais but seemingly oblivious to everything happening on its doorstep. It’s bleak and pitiless, and doesn’t quite have the hypnotic intensity of previous Haneke films like Amour and The White Ribbon.

Curzon Soho

Even when it was first built in 1912 there was always the intention that this cinema should be a stablemate of Curzon Mayfair, but various twists and turns meant this only finally happened when Roger Wingate acquried it in 1985. It now claims to be one of the country's busiest arthouse cinemas, with cafes and a fully-licensed bar on site alongside showings of premieres, previews, one-off screenings and festivals.
