Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody
  • 2018
  • UK / USA
  • 1h 31min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bryan Singer
  • Cast: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech, Mike Myers

The Freddie Mercury story. Malek as Mercury does a great job, with a passionate and impressive performance, but despite the recreation of momentous performances it’s a disappointingly tame affair, with a by-the-numbers screenplay and a bland lack of insight into Mercury’s heritage or sexuality.

Bombshell

Bombshell
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jay Roach
  • Cast: Charlize Theron, Margot Robbie, Nicole Kidman, John Lithgow

The story of the Roger Ailes sexual harassment scandal at Fox News. It favours snappiness rather than a serious examination of the crimes, but Theron is excellent as Megyn Kelly and Kidman and Robbie are also compelling. Slick, glossy and entertaining, but it could have used more sensitivity and anger.

The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man
  • 2020
  • US / Australia
  • 2h 4min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Leigh Whannell
  • Cast: Elisabeth Moss, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer

Cecilia (Moss) flees her abusive partner, optics experimenter Adrian (Jackson-Cohen), and then hears that he’s dead; but he still seems to be around. Whannell milks minimalist set-ups for maximum effect, and Moss projects raw dread and ‘final girl’-ish fortitude. A low-budget but high-resonance exercise in sweaty-palmed suspense.

Thu 5 Aug

Little Women

Little Women
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 15min
  • U
  • Directed by: Greta Gerwig
  • Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, Laura Dern, Timothée Chalamet, Meryl Streep, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, James Norton, Louis Garrel, Chris Cooper

Adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s 1868 novel about a group of sisters growing up after the American Civil War. Gerwig’s affection and respect for the book is obvious but she boldly captures the transition from childhood to womanhood by playing with structure; an outstanding cast and skilful filmmaking make it a beautifully crafted tale of sisterhood, memory and authorship.

Thu 5 Aug

Love Sarah

Love Sarah
  • 2020
  • UK
  • 1h 37min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Eliza Schroeder
  • Cast: Grace Calder, Bill Paterson, Celia Imrie

Mimi (Imrie) is an affluent but isolated pensioner who loses her estranged daughter in a cycling accident, and then teams up with her daughter’s best pal (Conn) to open a bakery. Light and fluffy romantic dramedy which lacks flavour, nuance and imagination.

Thu 5 Aug

National Theatre Live: King Lear

NT Live
  • 2011
  • UK
  • E
  • Directed by: Michael Grandage
  • Cast: Derek Jacobi, Gina McKee, Paul Jesson

Live screening of the National Theatre's production of King Lear, starring Ian McKellen.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
  • 2019
  • US / UK
  • 2h 45min
  • Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
  • Cast: James Marsden, Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio

Past-his-peak actor Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his stuntman and buddy Cliff Booth (Pitt) are living in Hollywood in 1969; then Sharon Tate (Robbie) and her husband Roman Polanski move in next door. Compelling and provocative, but uneven; for all the fine performances, black comedy and savage violence, Tarantino may have bitten off more than he can chew.

Thu 5 Aug

Royal Opera House: Macbeth

Royal Opera House: Macbeth
  • 2018
  • 3h 20min
  • Directed by: Phyllida Lloyd
  • Cast: Anna Netrebko, Željko Lučić, Ildebrando D’Arcangelo.

Something wicked this way comes in Phyllida Lloyd’s haunting production of Verdi’s opera based on Shakespeare’s tragedy.

Sun 29 Nov

Saint Frances

Saint Frances
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 46min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Alex Thompson
  • Cast: Kelly O'Sullivan, Charin Alvarez, Braden Crothers

A waitress must cope with an accidental pregnancy while juggling a new gig as a nanny to a rambunctious six-year-old.
