Benjamin

Benjamin
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 25min
  • Directed by: Simon Amstell
  • Cast: Colin Morgan, Anna Chancellor, Phénix Brossard

Benjamin (Morgan) is a filmmaker who’s entirely wrapped up in his work, but who then falls for French musician Noah (Brossard). This semi-autobiographical tale from writer-director Amstell is wry and self-deprecating, with Brossard a delight as Noah and Morgan a comic revelation as the awkward but endearing Benjamin.

Border

Border
  • 2018
  • Sweden / Denmark
  • 1h 50min
  • Directed by: Ali Abbasi
  • Cast: Eva Melander, Eero Milonoff, Jörgen Thorsson

Tina (Melander) is a customs officer in a Swedish coastal town, who has a strange appearance and a preternatural sense of smell. A very strange crime drama with a strong dose of Scandinavian mythology; intriguing, but hampered by its clumsy child pornography subplot.

Everybody Knows

Everybody Knows
  • 2018
  • Spain / France / Italy
  • Directed by: Asghar Farhadi
  • Cast: Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Carla Campra

Laura (Cruz) returns to her small town for a family wedding with her teenage daughter Irene (Campra) and young son. But then Irene is kidnapped. A stellar cast and careful craftsmanship make this portrait of family tensions perfectly watchable, but it’s a bit soapy and predictable and never as gripping as it might be.

Us

Us
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h
  • Directed by: Jordan Peele
  • Cast: Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul Mateen II, Anna Diop

Adelaide (Nyong’o) and Gabe (Duke) arrive at their holiday home with their children, only to be confronted by a mysteriously familiar foursome. Peele’s follow up to Get Out is a neat twist on the home invasion story, with beautifully executed set pieces, and Nyong’o is phenomenal as both protagonist and chief aggressor. Fresh and arresting.

Opened in 1913 as a single screen cinema, the Castle has variously operated as a bingo hall, a warehouse, a snooker hall and a convenience store.

Following a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2016 it was converted back into an independent cinema.
