A Personal History Of David Copperfield (Pg) Evening

BBFC Guidance: Mild violence, threat, brief bloody imagesArmando Iannucci co-writes and directs this comedy drama starring Dev Patel. Based on Charles Dickens' novel, the film follows the life of David Copperfield (Patel) as he comes of age in Victorian London. Raised by his single mother, David's idyllic childhood comes to an abrupt end with the arrival of his new step-father, who sends the young boy to an unforgiving boarding school. Following the death of his mother, David moves in with his aunt Betsey Trotwood (Tilda Swinton) and her husband Mr Dick (Hugh Laurie) before encountering the scheming Uriah Heep (Ben Whishaw).The lynchpin of the whole enterprise is a terrific star turn from Dev Patel, who has never been better. The energy and physicality of his performance is a constant delight; a tangle of arms and legs, he plays the knockabout farce with the timing and agility of a Chaplin. Screen DailyA fleet-footed and boisterously enjoyable Dickens adaptation that breathes new life into a well-worn story. A winning Dev Patel leads a highly amusing cast. Total FilmThroughout the film, the cast engage in so many wonderfully measured scenes of mayhem that the fun theyre clearly having radiates from the screen. The Guardian

Portrait Of A Lady On Fire

  • 15

BBFC Guidance: Sexualised nudityCeline Sciamma writes and directs this French historical drama starring Noemie Merlant and Adele Haenel. In 1770, artist Marianne (Merlant) travels to Brittany to paint a portrait of Heloise (Haenel), the daughter of a French countess, to celebrate her impending marriage to an Italian nobleman. However, Heloise objects to the marriage, so Marianne is tasked with completing her portrait in secret and acting as Heloise's companion. As the two women spend more time together, their relationship evolves into a forbidden affair.Razor-sharp and shatteringly romantic … as perfect a film as any to have premiered this year. IndiewireSciamma … has a magnificent capability for elegant prose that wouldnt feel out of place in a classic novel, the kind of dialogue that simmers long after it is spoken.A superbly elegant, enigmatic drama … I was on the edge of my seat. The GuardianThough this gorgeous, slow-burn lesbian romance works strongly enough on a surface level, one can hardly ignore the fact, as true then as it is now, that the world looks different when seen through a womans eyes.

The Secret Spitfires (Pg) Evening

Introduced by Director/Scriptwriter Ethem Cetintas and with QA after the film with engineer/ historian Norman ParkerSecret Spitfires is the remarkable story of how WWII Spitfire fighter aircraft were built in secret right in the heart of Southern England. It has taken 75 years for this story to come to light. It tells of how hundreds of girls, boys, women, elderly men and a handful engineers built the iconic fighter plane the Spitfire, in secret, hidden in sheds, depots, garages, barns and even a hotel. So hidden, Hitler's spies couldnt find them and have them bombed.The story starts with Hitlers determination to destroy Spitfire production and to achieve air superiority as a prelude to invasion. What he and his generals didnt know was that as they were destroying the main Spitfire factories in Southampton, manufacturing was being moved to secret factories in rural cities, small towns and villages. Three new main centres were set up such as Salisbury, Trowbridge and Reading which in turn were supplied by many other units hidden around the region such as Aldermarston, Chattis Hill, Eastleigh, Henley, Highpost, Hursley, Newbury, Winchester and Worthy Down. Salisbury became the biggest centre building well over 2000 Spitfires which were crucial in winning the Battle of Britain. The secret was so well kept, even the family and friends of the workers never knew what they did and where they worked.The Germans never knew of these secret factories even though they had spies in the neighbourhood, says Ethem Cetintas, the films co-director/producer together with Karl Howman, who discovered the remarkable story by a chance encounter with Gary Roberts, Associate Producer/researcher for the project along with historian and secret factory engineer Norman Parker. To this day, most local inhabitants dont know what happened, literally on their doorstep.This documentary demanded to be made to get it on record before no one was left to tell the story first hand. It took two and a half years to research and film and was entirely self-funded.
