  • Cast: Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams, Alessandro Nivola

Ronit (Weisz) is a photographer from an Orthodox Jewish family who comes home after her father’s death to find her teenage lover (McAdams) has married her father’s protégé (Nivola). Dour but engaging portrait of a cloistered community, intimate and authentic but also a little clumsy.

  • Cast: Marcello Fonte, Edoardo Pesce, Nunzia Schiano

Marcello (Fonte) is a mild-mannered dog groomer in a seaside town in Italy who deals a bit of cocaine on the side, and who gets involved with local thug Simone (Pesce). Violent, plaintive account of toxic masculinity and fear eating the soul, with a magnificent performance from Fonte, who won Best Actor at Cannes.

The House That Jack Built

The House That Jack Built
  • 2018
  • Denmark / France / Germany / Sweden
  • Directed by: Lars Von Trier
  • Cast: Matt Dillon, Bruno Ganz, Uma Thurman, Sofie Gråbøl

Jack (Dillon) is a serial killer who takes up murder after an annoying woman suggests he doesn’t have it in him. Dillon is convincingly sinister, but it’s just Von Trier playing with killer thriller tropes and poking fun at perceptions of himself, and it’s difficult to get offended by such an obvious attempt to provoke.

Roma

Roma
  • 2018
  • Mexico / US
  • 2h 15min

  • Cast: Yalitza Aparicio, Marina de Tavira

Cleo (Aparicio) is the loyal servant of a middle-class family headed by Sofia (de Tavira), in the Roma district of Mexico City in 1970-71. Beautifully crafted family drama that mixes quiet intimacy with observation of the tumultuous times in the nation, melancholy but thoroughly absorbing and gently touching.

Shoplifters

Shoplifters
  • 2018
  • Japan
  • 2h 1min
  • Directed by: Hirokazu Koreeda
  • Cast: Kirin Kiki, Lily Franky, Sakura Andô

A family in Tokyo lives by shoplifting, and then Osamu (Franky) and Shota (Kairi) bring home a little girl who seems to be homeless. The humanity of the performances and the loving attention to visual detail are of a piece in what’s ultimately a film about love.

Sorry to Bother You

Sorry to Bother You
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 51min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Boots Riley
  • Cast: Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Jermaine Fowler

Cassius (Stanfield) is a downtrodden drudge who becomes a star at a call centre after fellow telemarketer Langston (Glover) tells him to ‘use your white voice’. Brash, unruly and frequently funny satire on race, power, corporate greed and work; it doesn’t really know how to end, but it’s full of attitude and anarchy.

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.
