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

Viceroy's House (PG)

Set in India in 1947 by veteran director Guridner Chadha (Bend It Like Beckham) Lord Mountbatten and his wife are dispatched to New Delhi to oversee the country's transition from British rule to independence. But ending centuries of colonial rule in a country proves no easy undertaking, setting off a seismic struggle that threatens to tear India apart.

 

The cast that British audiences are familiar with include Hugh Bonneville as Lord Mountbatten, and his wife (played by Gillian Anderson of X Files) plus civil servants played by Michael Gambon and Simon Callow. A fine, prestigious drama designed to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the event, fans of Winston Churchill won’t much like the film’s recently discovered revelation of his part in India’s transformation.

Hidden Figures (PG)

This is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer seen in ‘The Help’) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe), brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big. Screen writer and director Theodore Melfi Oscar nominated  for this film.

"In heartwarming, crowd-pleasing fashion, Hidden Figures celebrates overlooked -- and crucial -- contributions from a pivotal moment in American history.” (Rotten Tomatoes 93%).
