Love & Friendship (U)


A colourful period drama with amusing twists and great locations.

Set in the 1790s, Love and Friendship centres on beautiful widow Lady Susan Vernon , who has come to the estate of her in-laws to wait out colourful rumours about her dalliances circulating through polite society. Whilst there, she decides to secure a husband for herself and her rather reluctant debutante daughter, Frederica. Starring Kate Beckinsale, Xavier Samuel and Stephen Fry. ......eye-catching costumes and cinematographer Richard Van Oosterhout’s well-chosen Irish locations lend visual heft, but it’s the sound of the wicked laughter that Love & Friendship provokes that I will remember longest. What a treat. Well played, Mr Stillman! Mark Kermode for The Guardian

Runtime: 92 minutes

Race (PG13)

Race is based on the incredible true story of Jesse Owens, the legendary athletic superstar whose quest to become the greatest track and field athlete in history thrusts him onto the world stage of the 1936 Olympics, where he faces off against Adolf Hitler's vision of Aryan supremacy. Race is an enthralling film about courage, determination, tolerance, and friendship, and an inspiring drama about one man's fight to become an Olympic legend.

Race is at its best when it fills in the corners of a story we only thought we knew. We expect Hitler to resist personal contact with Owens. But FDR offers a greater shock back home when Owens is not even invited to meet the president. Without diminishing the accomplishments of Owens, the film reminds us of our blinkered history with race and the hurdles still ahead. (Rolling Stone Magazine)

Florence Foster Jenkins (cert PG)

This film is based on the true story of a New York heiress and socialite who dreamed of becoming an opera singer, despite having a terrible singing voice. In 1944 Florence hired Carnegie Hall to perform as a soprano soloist. With no musical ability whatsoever but a large inheritance to enable her to indulge her love of performing, she becomes an unwitting musical clown which sustains the comedy throughout the film. The character is played with gentle comic affection by Meryl Streep.

 

“a delicious, finger-tingling comedy about the creative instinct that makes your heart want to squawk with joy”

Robbie Collin for The Telegraph

 

Runtime 110 mins

Brooklyn (12A)

BROOKLYN tells the profoundly moving story of Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan), a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950s Brooklyn. Lured by the promise of America, Eilis departs Ireland and the comfort of her mother's home for the shores of New York City. The initial shackles of homesickness quickly diminish as a fresh romance sweeps Eilis into the intoxicating charm of love. But soon, her new vivacity is disrupted by her past, and Eilis must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.

"Brooklyn buttresses outstanding performances from Saoirse Ronan and Emory Cohen with a rich period drama that tugs at the heartstrings as deftly as it satisfies the mind. Critics Consensus" Rotten Tomatoes

"A tremendous lead performance lifts Nick Hornby’s screen translation of Colm Tóibin’s novel out of sentimental period nostalgia into an intelligent drama". Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
