Impressionistic, non-linear portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy, with an agonising, in-depth performance by Portman, who is gripping either while giving a shy television tour of the White House, or going to pieces in a bathroom.

The Odyssey (12A) Borderlines Film Festival Preview Screening

As part of our World Cinema Season we are pleased to present this Special Preview Screening For Borderlines Film Festival

Featuring a gleaming cast, Jérôme Salle takes us on a voyage through the life of legendary French oceanographer and filmmaker Jacques Cousteau. Filmed across the globe, this is no hagiography; Salle gives us the flawed Cousteau, a visionary who struggled to reconcile his ambitions against a family life with his wife Simone and son Philippe. The film’s personal dramas are married to breathtaking underwater scenery, a glimpse of the world that fired Cousteau’s pioneering spirit, a fine tribute to one of France’s most beloved and idiosyncratic cultural icons.

Sweet Bean (Pg) Borderlines Film Festival

As part of our World Cinema Season we are pleased to present this special one off screening for Borderlines Film Festival.

In this graceful, delicate and compassionate drama *Sweet Bean *refers to anko, the delicious red paste in the middle of the dorayaki pancakes that Sentaro sells from his bakery to a small but loyal clientele. A remote man, absorbed in difficult memories, Sentaro cooks with skill but without much enthusiasm. When eccentric 76-year-old Tokue responds to his ad for an assistant, cheerfully agreeing to work for minimal pay, Sentaro is skeptical until she reveals to him the secret to the perfect sweet bean paste. Gorgeously shot and wonderfully performed, Kawase balances elements of sadness and tragedy against those of hope and wisdom in this gentle, unassuming but profoundly affecting tale.
