Lost in Paris (12A)

"A nostalgic yet refreshing take on romance in Paris both warms and delights"


Fiona is a Canadian librarian who flies

to Paris and discovers that her 88-year-old aunt is missing. As Fiona scours the city looking for her, she encounters Dom, a friendly but annoying tramp who won't leave her alone.

Most of the pleasures of “Lost in Paris” come from watching the coincidences multiply, a case of mistaken identity at a funeral and a bit of acrobatic derring-do on the Eiffel Tower.

 

"With its visually stylish sight gags and broad physical comedy, “Lost in Paris” blends the whimsy of Wes Anderson with the inventive slapstick of Jacques Tati"

Pat Padua (Washington Post)


Lost in Paris is whimsical to a fault, but its fanciful light-heartedness earns the audience's indulgence with charming performances and an infectious absurdity.(Rotten Tomatoes)

Running time 83 mins

The Sense of an Ending (PG)

 

 


Directed by Ritesh Batra (known for his Mumbai-set heartwarmer The Lunchbox) and adapted by Nick Payne from the 2011 Booker-winning novel by Julian Barnes.

Broadbent plays Tony Webster, a grumpy retiree, divorced from his elegant and beautiful QC wife Margaret (Harriet Walter brilliant in so many previous roles including last month’s Denial).

Webster leads a reclusive and quiet existence until long buried secrets from his past force him to face the flawed recollections of his younger self, the truth about his first love (played by Charlotte Rampling) and the devastating consequences of decisions made a lifetime ago.

Anchored by a strong starring performance by Jim Broadbent, The Sense of an Ending proves consistently gripping” Rotten Tomatoes

Denial (12A)


Deborah Lipstadt is an American professor of Holocaust studies whose speaking engagement is disrupted by David Irving, a Nazi Germany scholar. He files a libel lawsuit in the UK against Lipstadt and her publisher for declaring him a Holocaust denier in her books. As in the United Kingdom the burden of proof in a libel case lies with the accused, Lipstadt and her legal team, led by solicitor Anthony Julius and barrister Richard Rampton, must prove that Irving lied about the Holocaust. A courtroom drama starring Rachel Weisz, Timothy Spall and Tom Wilkinson

"Lipstadt has a charismatic solicitor in Anthony Julius (Andrew Scott), who once acted for Princess Diana, and a QC in Richard Rampton (Tom Wilkinson) who fully lives up to the stereotype of the brilliant but eccentric British lawyer. Weisz captures well her character’s bafflement not just at the British legal system but at British society generally. She also shows just how steadfast Lipstadt was in the face of Irving’s attacks"

Geoffrey Macnab (The Independent)

One of the most spectacular aspects of the film are the court hearings as they are simultaneously almost unbelievable and yet lifted, verbatim, from the records" (Rotten Tomatoes)

Running time 1hr 50 mins
