The Beguiled

The Beguiled
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sofia Coppola
  • Cast: Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning

John McBurney (Farrell) is a wounded Union deserter in the US Civil War who winds up in a school for girls, where headmistress Martha (Kidman) is persuaded to show him kindness. Coppola’s remake of Don Siegel’s sweaty 1971 original plays like meticulously crafted high-camp melodrama; intermittently enjoyable, but rushed and flustered.

Cars 3

  • Directed by: Brian Fee
  • Cast: Armie Hammer, Nathan Fillion, Owen Wilson, Kerry Washington

Lightning (Wilson) is challenged by new car on the block, Jackson Storm (Hammer). The least interesting Pixar franchise rumbles on in a rudimentary cash-grab which is basically a training montage in search of a story, and Randy Newman’s score can’t save it from being a dull lunge for the finish line.

Doc Of The Month: Risk

  • 15

How much of your own life are you willing to risk?

Laura Poitras, Academy Award-winning director of CITIZENFOUR, returns with her most personal and intimate film to date. Filmed over six years, Risk is a complex and volatile character study that collides with a high-stakes election year and its controversial aftermath. Cornered in a tiny building for half a decade, Julian Assange is undeterred even as the legal jeopardy he faces threatens to undermine the organization he leads and fracture the movement he inspired. Capturing this story with unprecedented access, Poitras finds herself caught between the motives and contradictions of Assange and his inner circle.In a new world order where a single keystroke can alter history, Risk is a portrait of power, betrayal, truth, and sacrifice.

"Laura Poitras gains impressive access in this candid documentary following the WikiLeaks founder over a five-year period." ★★★★★ The Guardian

"A jaw-dropping profile of one man's battle with world governments, common decency and his own out-of-control ego." ★★★★ Time Out

The Graduate R/i

  • 15

With The Graduate, Dustin Hoffman challenged conventional notions of the Hollywood leading man and became an overnight star. Hoffman’s second film role earned him an Oscar nomination and sees him playing Benjamin Braddock, a directionless graduate romantically entangled with both the predatory Mrs Robinson and her daughter Elaine, his true love. A huge financial and critical success, the film turned Hoffman into an overnight sensation and proved to Hollywood that leading men didn’t need conventional looks in order to carry a film. With America’s youth feeling uncertainty and doubt partly due to the country’s deepening involvement in Vietnam, The Graduate spoke to them and a significant worldwide audience. As the film reaches its 50th anniversary, we are delighted to screen this newly restored 4K digital print.

The Red Turtle (Pg) World Cinema Season

Oscar-winner (for his 2001 animated short Father and Daughter) Michaël Dudok de Wit's exquisite wordless animation - his first feature - is a co-production between Wild Bunch and Studio Ghibli and premiered in Un Certain Regard at Cannes this year where it won universal acclaim.

It tells the story of a man marooned on a desert island populated by turtles and crabs but devoid of any other human life. He tries desperately to escape until one day he meets a strange, giant red turtle and begins a friendship that will change his life.

Dudok de Wit mixes hand and computer-drawn animation throughout and it's as beautiful as you would expect from a film on which Ghibli's Isao Takahata served as artistic producer, with imagery of the sea and the island's flora and fauna brought vividly to life. Its daring lack of dialogue adds to, rather than subtracts from the rich ideas that permeate the film: about nature, human expectation and acceptance, and the power of companionship. Unforgettable.

Song to Song

  • Directed by: Terrence Malick
  • Cast: Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Michael Fassbender

Faye (Mara) is an aspiring musician torn between puppyish up-and-comer BV (Gosling) and handsome devil producer Cook (Fassbender), who is also the object of the desires of a waitress (Portman). Dreamy, elliptical but superficial romance which feels more like a long perfume ad than a proper drama.
