Stanley Kubrick Mini Season: The Shining

  • 15

With this new digital restoration showing in its longer US cut, Stanley Kubrick’s remarkable 1980 horror film has lost none of its power to shock.

When a troubled writer takes his wife and son to a remote hotel, the ghosts of the Overlook’s bloody past come back to haunt them. Kubrick’s spine-tingling adaptation of Stephen King’s bestseller (which itself drew inspiration from Shirley Jackson’s novel The Haunting of Hill House) has been voted one of the greatest horror movies of all time, with Jack Nicholson’s portrayal of the increasingly deranged Jack Torrance becoming an icon of psychotic screen terror. Yet it is Shelley Duvall’s all-too-real portrayal of an anguished wife that really lends the drama such a gut-wrenchingly visceral punch – her utterly credible performance having been provoked by the director with a ruthlessness that perhaps borders on cruelty. Criticised by King devotees for straying from the details of the author’s logically linear text, The Shining was recut by its notoriously perfectionist director after its initial US release, making the film even more elliptical and enigmatic. Decide for yourself whether this longer US cut – never released in UK cinemas – was superior to the slimmed-down international version.

Sully: Miracle On The Hudson

  • 12A

Tom Hanks stars as a modern American hero in this riveting true life drama.

On 15 January 2009, Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger became a national hero when the world witnessed him pilot his disabled plane onto the waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. However, even as Sully was being championed for his bravery and skill, an investigation was unfolding that threatened to destroy both his reputation and his career.

Tom Hanks stars as Captain Sullenberger in this amazing true-life story directed by the great Clint Eastwood. Many are calling this Hanks’ finest role to date, with talk of an Oscar nomination. "This is Hanks’ show, and he delivers a typically strong performance, quickly allowing us to forget that we’re watching an actor,” says Variety magazine, with The Hollywood Reporter calling the movie "a vigorous and involving salute to professionalism and being good at your job".

" superb drama, suits Hanks and Eastwood down to the ground" ★★★★★
