The Theory of Everytrhing - Sun 13 Sept, 8 pm

2014 UK, Cert 12A, 123 min James Marsh




Felicity Jones "plays Jane, wife of Stephen Hawking, in a story that spans their 25 year relationship. Eddie Redmayne gives a charismatic, committed performance as Hawking, but the story is really about Jane. As Hawking’s motor neurone disease diminishes his physical abilities, and thus his expressive capacities, it’s left to Jones to register the physical and emotional strain of caring for Hawking and their three children, and watching his scientific celebrity grow at the expense of her own ambitions. Not to mention being obliged to explain the incompatibility of quantum mechanics and gravitational theory to dinner guests on Hawking’s behalf, using peas and potatoes."  - Steve Rose

Birdman - Sun 11 Oct, 8 pm
Or: The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance

2014 US, Cert 15, 119 mins, Alejandro G Inarritu
 



"Y
ou’ll believe a man can fly. Or you’ll believe that believing you can fly and flying are sort of the same thing. Either way, Alejandro González Iñárritu achieves takeoff in a big way with his crazy, freaky-deaky, hellzapoppin’ showbiz comedy Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance). I certainly levitated with enjoyment.  ..
It’s shot in one single take, without cuts (but with a few seamless digital sutures) and depicts the escalating anxiety attack being suffered by a failing movie star called Riggan Thomson, played with fiercely tender self-pity by Michael Keaton. Poor Riggan has haughtily abandoned the dumb superhero role of Birdman that made him rich and famous, and is now trying for credibility by starring in his own self-financed Broadway stage adaptation of a Raymond Carver story.  . . It is a film that has been wildly hailed by the critics, despite – I am sorry to say – depicting critics as fatuous, shallow, parasitic and prejudiced."  - Peter Bradshaw

Boyhood - Sun 15 Nov, 7:30 pm
NOTE: earlier start time; with intermission
2014 USA Cert 15, 165 mins, Richard Linklater
 

"This beautiful, mysterious movie is a time-lapse study of Mason, growing up from around the age of five to 18, from primary school to his first day in college. It is an intimate epic: over 12 years, Linklater worked with the young actor Ellar Coltrane, shooting scenes every year with him and other cast members, who grow visibly and heart-stoppingly older around him. The director's daughter, Lorelei Linklater, plays Mason's older sister, Samantha; Patricia Arquette is superb as their divorced single mom, hard-working and aspirational, but worryingly condemned to hook up with drunks and give the kids abusive stepdads. Ethan Hawke – his lean, chiselled face softening as the years go by – plays the kids' feckless and unreliable but charming father, who shows up every few weeks in his cool car. And Mason's own face changes from its young, moony openness to a closed, grown-up handsomeness. It is the face he will learn to present to the world." -  Peter Bradshaw


"Richard Linklater's latest, filmed in 39 days over 12 years, captivates you not with its method, but with its intimate insight " - Mark Kermode

Paddington - Sun  8 Dec, 7:30 pm
Note: earlier start time!
2014 UK/France Cert PG, 95 mins, Paul King
 

"Here’s a nice surprise. The new CGI-live-action Paddington Bear could easily have been another garish, cheapo Brit-movie. Instead, writer-director Paul King (who has worked on The Mighty Boosh TV show) and co-writer Hamish McColl have created a charming and sweet-natured family film, full of wit and fun, skewed towards young children but cheekily speckled with sly gags pitched at the older audience.  ..       The villain of the piece is Nicole Kidman, giving it the full Cruella de Vil as a sinister taxidermist called Millicent, kitted out in dominatrix getup, which I certainly don’t remember from the books. .. .      It is a Christmas treat."  -  Peter Bradshaw

Pride - Sun 17 Jan, 8 pm

2014  UK/France Cert 15119 mins, Richard Warchus   


"There is a euphoric defiance in this impassioned and lovable film, which premiered at Cannes earlier this year, based on the true story of pioneering gay campaigners in London who supported the striking miners in 1984, and in so doing had to overcome tribal suspicions among both London’s gay community and the miners of south Wales. It’s a movie with poignant resonances in modern Britain . .  .  This a richly enjoyable film – and one that persuades you that the good guys might actually have won in the end".  -  Peter Bradshaw

Dear White People - Sun 14 Feb 8 pm

2014 US Cert 15, 108 minsJustin Simien
 

Dear White People follows its four main protagonists as a group of white students at their college throw a “black people-themed costume party”  . .

“We see the way in which the party came together and the aftermath of the party came together through the perspective of these four very different black kids who all have very different ideas of what it means to be black in a predominantly white space.”   -  Justin Simien

"This refreshingly angular approach to class, racism and the interracial sex taboo addresses the elephants in cinema’s crowded room"  -  Peter Bradshaw

THE LADY IN THE VAN - Sun 13 Mar

CHANGE IN PROGRAMME

2015  UK, Cert  12A,  104 mins, Nicholas Hytner

 

"Maggie Smith gets the chance to play someone grander than the Dowager Countess of Grantham, although with the same piercing stare of disapproval, pinched lips and bird-like head movements, as she assesses the unsatisfactory nature of everything around her.

She plays Miss Shepherd, the “Lady in the Van”, in this very enjoyable film directed by Nicholas Hytner and adapted by Alan Bennett from his London Review of Books memoir about the haughty, cantankerous homeless woman who bullied him into having her chaotic camper van in his driveway for 15 years. "    - Peter Bradshaw

The 100 Year Old Man

who climbed out the window and disappeared  Sun 3 Apr, 8 pm

2014 Sweden,  Cert 15114 mins  Felix Hernagren

 

"Committed to care, Allan makes a swift exit from said window just as a centennial birthday party is being planned in his honour. He has no particular idea where he’s going, and no clothes beyond what he’s wearing, so when an angry thug insults him, it feels like cosmic justice for him to make off with the guy’s suitcase. This turns out to be full of drug money, kicking the film into gear as an oblivious comic thriller – Allan’s knack of unwittingly thwarting the hoods who want him dead (including a never-more-furious Alan Ford) is a consistently funny plot motor . . .It’s a silly romp, but the loopy novelty of it can be very entertaining." . . . Tim Robey

"There's a hoary old gag that Scandinavian humour is no laughing matter" - Mark Kermode
