Cow

Cow
  • 2021
  • 1h 34min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Andrea Arnold

CTBA

"Andrea Arnold (American Honey) takes you on a seemingly simple, yet radical journey, offering an insight into the life of a dairy cow.

This mesmerising documentary gets down and dirty with Luma, a cow on a working dairy farm. Shot with a hand-held camera and at the animal’s eye-level, we stay as close to her as possible. Much like GUNDA (screened in Studio 74 in 2021) there is no voice over just great cinematic flair.

Cow is an immersive experience; from birth, rearing, intensive milking sessions, an all too brief grazing period and, eventually, the inevitable, dreaded end. All captured by Arnold’s deeply empathetic and unwavering gaze. And throughout the film are Luma’s watchful eyes, often looking directly at us. Experiencing the world from Luma’s perspective cannot help but raise questions about our relationship to the natural world and what we take from it.

Contains scenes viewers may find distressing."

A Hero

A Hero
  • 2021
  • France, Iran
  • 2h 7min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Asghar Farhadi
  • Written by: Asghar Farhadi
  • Cast: Amir Jadidi, Mohsen Tanabandeh, Fereshteh Sadre Orafaiy

Asghar Farhadi’s signature cinematic web-weaving is deployed to captivating effect in his Cannes Grand Prix-winning drama – a reflection on the grey line between right and wrong.

It’s difficult not to empathise with affable, gentle-manned Rahim (Amir Jadidi), a traditional sign-maker imprisoned for an unpaid debt to his former brother-in-law. His family are delighted when he surprises them with two days of leave and have no idea that he plans to repay his debt with a bag of gold coins his girlfriend found on a bus. Yet his decision has unexpected consequences, spiralling from a moment of redemption into chaos. As Farhadi gradually – and with characteristically forensic detail – unravels the plot, he underlines that stories too are constructions, and can easily be co-opted; truth really depends on where you stand. So, what truly makes a hero? Ability, honesty or simply the power to control the narrative.

Dir Eric Steel/US 2020/118 mins/Hebrew, Russian, Yiddish and English with partial EngST

Samuel H. Levine, Ron Rifkin, Christopher McCann

A young Russian Jewish immigrant in New York Brighton Beach, caught up in the tight constraints of his community, develops a close friendship with his grandfather’s new neighbours, two elderly closeted men who open his imagination to the possibilities of love and the realities of loss — and explores the East Village where he finds a world teeming with the energy of youth and desire. Set in the late 1980s New York City, Minyan is a powerful story of rebellion and self-discovery, sexual and spiritual awakening — and survival.

National Theatre Live: Leopoldstadt

National Theatre Live: Leopoldstadt
  • 2020
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Patrick Marber
  • Written by: Tom Stoppard

Regarded as ‘Britain’s greatest living playwright’ (Times), Academy and Tony Award-winner Tom Stoppard’s critically acclaimed new play Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Leopoldstadt was the old, crowded Jewish quarter of Vienna, Austria. But Hermann Merz, a factory owner and baptised Jew now married to Catholic Gretl, has moved up in the world.

We follow his family’s story across half a century, passing through the convulsions of war, revolution, impoverishment, annexation by Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. A company of 40 actors represent each generation of the family in this epic, but intimate play.

Filmed live on stage in London’s West End, ‘Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece is magnificent’ (Independent) and should not be missed.

Please note that this performance has been filmed live in front of an audience and is not a live broadcast.

  • France / Belgium
  • 1h 48min

  • Directed by: Julia Ducournau
  • Cast: Agathe Rousselle, Vincent Lindon, Garance Marillier, Laïs Salameh

Julia Ducournau follows up her debut Raw (FilmFear 2016) with a baroque shocker that won the top prize of the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. A young dancer (Agathe Rousselle), who suffered a terrible injury following a car crash when she was a child, embarks on a fantastical and violent odyssey involving serial murder, self-harm, physical transformation and a mysterious pregnancy. Ducournau twists narrative forms into radical new shapes while staging a number of flamboyantly extreme set-pieces, pushing the film towards a state of sensory overload. Courtesy of Altitude/Film4.
