  • 116 min
  • Directed by: Cate Shortland

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.

  • Finland/Germany
  • 98 min

  • Cast: Sherwan Haji, Sakari Kousmanen, Ville Virtanen, Kati Outinen

Syrian asylum-seeker Khaled (Haji) meets travelling salesman-turned-restaurateur Wikström (Kuosmanen), and after an awkward start, a beautiful friendship is born. Kaurismaki is back and at the top of his game, with a melancholy, gorgeous-looking, sometimes screamingly funny exploration of the kindness of strangers. How we’ve missed him.

The Red Turtle

The Red Turtle
  • 2016
  • France / Belgium / Japan
  • 80 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michaël Dudok de Wit
  • Cast: Emmanuel Garijo, Barbara Baretta, Tom Hudson (voices)

A man washes up on a desert island; when he tries to build a raft, it’s destroyed by a mysterious red turtle. Breathtaking début feature by Dutch writer, director and animator, a stunning, life-affirming tale of man’s relationship with nature, entirely worthy of the Ghibli name (the studio co-produced it).

The Seasons In Quincy: Four Portraits Of John Berger

The Seasons In Quincy: Four Portraits Of John Berger
  • 2016
  • 93 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bartek Dziadosz, Colin MacCabe, Christopher Roth, Tilda Swinton
  • Cast: John Berger, Tilda Swinton,

Wonderful documentary comprising four essay-films about the writer John Berger, in which Swinton and fellow film-makers hang out with him and discuss what it calls his ‘radical, democratic humanism’. Each film is stand-alone but they form a lovely mosaic, being not just about Berger but also about how others respond to him.

Secret In Their Eyes

Secret In Their Eyes
  • 2015
  • US
  • 111 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Billy Ray
  • Cast: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts

A former FBI investigator (Ejiofor) wants to reopen a cold murder case from 2002, needing the support of an ambitious DA (Kidman); however, the victim's mother, a former colleague of theirs (Roberts), wants it to be behind her. Melodramatic remake of Juan José Campanella's brilliant 2009 thriller; some interesting ideas are lost in botched storytelling.

Stockholm, My Love

Stockholm, My Love
  • 2016
  • Sweden
  • 88 min
  • Directed by: Mark Cousins
  • Cast: Mark Cousins, Anita Oxburgh

Alva (Cherry) is an architect who wanders the streets of Stockholm on the anniversary of a traumatic car accident. Dreamy and restless, Cousins’s first dramatic film blurs boundaries between reality and fiction and while it isn’t as personal or sharply focused as his earlier I Am Belfast, it retains that film’s poetry and curiosity.

Whitney: Can I Be Me

Whitney: Can I Be Me
  • 2017
  • 105 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Nick Broomfield/Rudi Dolezal
  • Written by: Nick Broomfield

Documentary about the life and death of singing sensation Whitney Houston, using a fairly traditional format of talking heads and archive footage. Broomfield and Dolezal trace her journey with sensitivity and assurance and if a few puzzle pieces are missing, there are some revealing interviews.

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.
