A Private War (15)  

 

 

In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin (Rosamund Pike) is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontlines of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless, while constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado. After being hit by a grenade in Sri Lanka, she wears a distinctive eye patch and is still as comfortable sipping martinis with London's elite as she is confronting dictators. Colvin sacrifices loving relationships, and over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she's witnessed takes its toll. Yet, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her, along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan) -- to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs.

Written by Aviron Pictures

"This heartfelt work, based on a Vanity Fair article by Marie Brenner entitled Marie Colvin’s Private War covers Colvin’s troubled, passionate career up to Homs, where her reporting disproved Assad’s lies about not targeting civilians. Rosamund Pike does an honest job playing Colvin and Jamie Dornan is her photographer, Paul Conroy".

First Man (12A)  

 

This riveting story directed by Damien Chazelle (Whiplash, La La Land) tells of the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) and the decade leading up to the historic Apollo 11 flight. 

A visceral and intimate account told from Armstrong’s perspective, the film explores the triumphs and the cost on Armstrong, his family, his colleagues and the nation itself, of one of the most dangerous missions in history.  Armstrong’s wife is played by Claire Foy of ‘The Crown’ and ‘Wolf Hall’ fame.

“While Gosling plays everything close to his chest, it’s Foy who invites us into the unfolding drama with her wonderfully empathetic performance”. (Mark Kermode for The Observer)

The Wife (15)

 

After nearly forty years of marriage, Joan and Joe Castleman (Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce) are complements. Joe enjoys his very public role as a great American novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm, and diplomacy into the private role of Great Man's Wife.

“Close is absolutely mesmerising as the woman who gives every appearance of standing faithfully by her man, yet with myriad subtle looks and glances suggests a lifetime of simmering discontent.”  Radio Times

 “This is an unmissable movie for Glen Close fans. Actually, you can’t watch it without becoming a fan – if you weren’t one already” (Peter Bradshaw for The Guardian)

Running Time 1hr 40mins

The Children Act (12A)

 

 

As her marriage to Jack (Stanley Tucci) flounders, eminent High Court judge Fiona Maye (Emma Thompson) has a life-changing decision to make at work - should she force a teenage boy, Adam (Fionn Whitehead), to have the blood transfusion that will save his life? Her unorthodox visit to his hospital bedside has a profound impact on them both, stirring strong new emotions in the boy and long-buried feelings in her.

 

“It's a remarkable, literate, nuanced film, which refuses to play to the gallery but, like the Bach keyboard music on its soundtrack, finds palpable emotion lurking just below a seemingly ordered surface.” Radio Times

Divided

Our Extra film' Divided' was shown

in memory of Julia Park

 

 

Thursday December 6

Divided (12A)


Lee Craigie and Rickie Cotter dreamt of being the fastest and winning this incredible cycle race from Canada to the border with Mexico. This inspiring documentary by The Adventure Syndicate was the last film to be chosen by Julia Park for Titchfield Moviola & will be shown in aid of her chosen charity Clear Sky (www.clear-sky.org.uk)


 

The Tour Divide route follows the Continental Divide down the spine of the USA. It covers a distance more than three times the length of the UK, with just under 20 Everests’ worth of climbing. The rules are simple: eat and sleep when you like, but the clock never stops. Follow the exact route and remain completely self-supported. And if that’s not enough of a challenge, racers have to dodge bears, lightning storms, snow and snakes. This is the story of their adventure. It’s not a straightforward one, but then none of the best stories are.

The Adventure Syndicate has been showing this film to groups of teenage girls whom they work with in schools in Scotland.

"My hope is that this film will show them camaraderie, cooperation and collaboration and show women who are not following the traditional model and are going against the flow and having a ball - not listening to the people who say that is not possible and that it is a bit dangerous and I think that is a really powerful message for teenage girls," said Lee.


This short film has the added bonus of being introduced by Lee Craigie herself and she will be available after the showing to answer questions about her epic trip. 

 

Tickets cost £8 and will be available as usual from Daisy B's The Square Titchfield and online at
