Filmhub - On Chesil Beach (2018) - Rated 15 Click To Read More

Based on the novella by Ian McEwan, it is the story of Florence and Edward (Saoirse Ronan and Billy Howle), young university graduates getting married in 1962. She is a talented and ambitious classical musician from a well-to-do family and he is a clever young man from humbler origins. Both have first-class degrees and, in consequence, no small opinion of themselves. The wedding night is a painful, intimately humiliating fiasco with devastating consequences.The soundtrack perfectly mimics the stories of our leads, with rebellious rocknroll battling against plaintive chamber music. A strong directorial debut from Cooke and consummate performances from Ronan and Howle deliver a restrained yet touching adaptation of McEwans work, which picks apart the dizzying highs, lonely lows and the cruel what-ifs of an unfulfilled love. The UpcomingOverall, this is a solid drama made from a stellar book, but if you see it even just for the two performances, you wont be disappointed. rogerebert.comSee TrailerRun Time 113m

Filmhub - The Bookshop (2018) - Rated Pg Click To Read More

Based on the novel by Penelope Fitzgerald. It is 1959, and widowed Florence Green (Emily Mortimer) risks everything to open up a bookshop in the sleepy seaside town of Hardborough. When she exposes the narrow minded townsfolk to the best literature of the day including Nabokovs scandalizing Lolita and Ray Bradburys Fahrenheit 451, she gains a kindred spirit and ally in the figure of Mr Brundish (Bill Nighy), who is himself sick of the towns stale atmosphere, but has to reckon with the hostility of the other shopkeepers and of self-appointed doyenne Mrs Gamart (Patricia Clarkson).Courage is the central theme of this delightful film about books, passion and dreams… Lovers of books and admirers of determination will embrace this enchanting film. I hope you will enjoy it, too. Urban CinefileIts the goodness in Florence and the pride with which she carries herself through the adversity of her meetings with a mean-minded bank manager and a killjoy town snob that gives the film charm. Bill Nighy does what Bill does best and teams with child actor Honor Kneafsey to reinforce the goodness in Florence.Spanish director Coixet brings a beautiful uniqueness to a quirky British setting without a whiff of predictability.

Filmhub - The Bromley Boys (2018) - Rated Pg Click To Read More

A funny and touching coming of age football memoir played out to the sights and sounds of late 60s Britain. Based on the hilarious novel by Dave Roberts, it recounts the authors highs and lows supporting the worst football team in the country at the time - Bromley FC.Tragedy plus time equals comedy. So is the case with The Bromley Boys, based on author Dave Roberts memoir of supporting the worst football team in Britain. Not only that, but his story is also centred on the worst season they ever had. Said to be based on real events (and some rumours), the film makes reference to the creative embellishments that make it such a warm, sweet crowd-pleaser. Whether the feature is historically accurate or not, it sure is lovely. The UpcomingOverall, the film is a heart-warming tale of passion and first love coming together. If youre a football fan you will be in your element from the opening scenes and thoroughly enjoy this love letter to the beautiful game. If you arent a fan, just stick around and you may change your mind by the end of the film.Movie CornerSee TrailerRun Time 107m

Filmhub - The Leisure Seeker (2018) - Rated 15 Click To Read More

John and Ella Robina (Donald Sutherland and Helen Mirren) have shared a wonderful life for more than fifty years. Now in their eighties, Ella suffers from cancer and has chosen to stop treatment. John has Alzheimers. Yearning for one last adventure, they escape from the grown-up children and doctors who seem to run their lives, and leave their home in suburban Detroit on a forbidden vacation of rediscovery.This first English-language film from the Italian director Paolo Virz is an impeccably acted, teary-funny comedy about an ageing couple coming to terms with the fact that their days of living independently are numbered. The TelegraphThe so-called Marigold Effect is still with us. After The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel became a hit in 2012, the term was coined to describe studios sudden willingness to finance twinkly comedy dramas for and about pensioners… The Leisure Seeker is so rich, sparky, surprising and poignant that it justifies the trend singlehandedly. The EconomistThere may not be a great deal of innovation at work here, but there are many moments of real poignance in this circuitous journey. There is a sense of destination for the narrative throughout, but The Leisure Seekerultimately doesnt gather the speed it perhaps should, and takes a few too many narrative detours - though still plays on the heartstrings. It promises tears, laughs and gasps but, most of all, a stark and empathic look at dignity and love late in life. The UpcomingSee TrailerRun Time 112m
