The Bookshop (PG)

Thursday Nov 1

 

Emily Mortimer (Sense of an Ending)  plays the gentle Norfolk shop owner at the heart of this fascinating adaptation (book by Penelope Fitzgerald) shot in Northern Ireland, made by a Spanish Director. Also starring Bill Nighy (Love Actually) and Patricia Clarkson (Green Mile), the performances of all three in this aged tale about late 1950’s class and corruption make this film a must see this autumn

"The Bookshop benefits from being made by an outsider. At times, it may seem off-key but there is an irony and originality here that you wouldn’t find if a British director had been calling the shots". Geoffrey Macnab (Independent)

Running time 113 mins

Ladybird(15) 

Thursday Oct 4

 

Lady Bird played by Saoirse Ronan is artistically inclined teenager, with an explosive mix of sensitivity, alienation and martyred self-importance. Her nickname is part of her insistence on self-identifying in ways other than those imposed on her by family and school. To her mother’s intense irritation, she will no longer answer to Christine, only to Lady Bird.

Marion McPherson (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse, works tirelessly to keep her family afloat after her husband loses his job. She also maintains a turbulent bond with a teenage daughter who is just like her: loving, strong-willed and deeply opinionated

Ronan and Metcalf are heartbreaking as a mother and daughter who can’t quite meet in the middle, but Lady Bird enthrals because its smaller roles are also beautifully played. It’s a clever, affecting film that’s a total pleasure to watch” Nick Levine for NME

Edie (12A) 

Thursday July 5

 


 

To try and overcome a lifetime of bitterness and resentment, an elderly woman embarks on a trip to fulfill her longtime dream of climbing a mountain in the Scottish Highlands. Spectacular scenery and starring Sheila Hancock, joined by Kevin Guthrie and Paul Brannigan, both who appeared in another great film ‘Sunshine on Leith’

 

The dynamic between Hancock and Guthrie is wonderful to behold, their bickering producing plenty of humorous moments as Edie and Jonny suss each other out and build trust in one another. The film is set in the Scottish highlands, with the scenery playing an important role in the film. Jamie Neish (Cinevue)

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (15)

 

 

 


 

A darkly comic drama from Academy Award nominee Martin McDonagh (In Bruges). After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson remembered fondly as the barman from Cheers), the town's revered chief of police.

“Frances McDormand’s face eloquently conveys someone who is past hoping, past fearing, though not past caring” (Peter Bradshaw for The Guardian)
