Lion (PG)

Showed on Thursday, 1st June, 2017

A five-year-old Indian boy gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, thousands of miles from home. He survives many challenges before being adopted by a couple in Australia. 25 years later, he sets out to find his lost family. Davis, a first-time feature director with a background in television delivers a confident debut. This adaptation of the true story of Saroo Brierley – lost as a child and adopted by an Australian couple, he retraced his Indian family 25 years later using Google Earth.

"Has some pacing issues and an overbearing score, but nothing that isn’t erased by the swelling, tear-jerking crescendo of an ending". Wendy Ide for The Guardian.

Running time 118mins

Queen of Katwa (PG)

Directed by Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding), this inspiring drama manages to both capture the hardship of living in a Ugandan slum and work as a feel-good Disney movie. Living in the slum of Katwe in Kampala, Uganda, is a constant struggle for 10-year-old Phiona (Madina Nalwanga) and her family. Her world changes one day when she meets Robert Katende (David Oyelowo from Selma & United Kingdom), a missionary who teaches children how to play chess. Phiona becomes fascinated with the game and soon becomes a top player under Katende's guidance. Her success in local competitions and tournaments opens the door to a bright future and a golden chance to escape from a life of poverty

United Kingdom (12A)

United Kingdom (12A)

Thursday, March 2


 

Directed by the talented Amma Asante, in 1948 Seretse Khama, heir to Botswana, marries Ruth Williams a white office worker from London. This film merges the personal & geo politics of the era.

 

"A United Kingdom is one of those true-life stories so poignant, you'll wonder why it took so long to become a movie. African tribal leader Seretse Khama and a British clerk called Ruth Williams fall in love in late 1940s London, but have to resist the British Empire at its nastiest to see things through. It’s the stuff of which great power ballads are made". Phil De Semlyen for Empire Magazine

Captain Fantastic (15)

Ben Cash (Viggo Mortensen) is raising his six children off the grid in rural Washington. The alternative lifestyle is threatened when Ben has to take his family to visit his wife’s parents and everything starts to unravel as the children experience the outside world for the first time.

 

With its thrillingly life-affirming performances, it’s a shame that Captain Fantastic’s “strong language” has earned it a 15 certificate; there’s more here for adolescent audiences to enjoy and appreciate than in much 12-rated blockbuster fare. He may not be a superhero, but in terms of imagination, this captain really can fly. Mark Kermode of The Guardian
