LEAN ON PETE (Subtitled)

Charley Thompson (Charlie Plummer) is a 15-year-old who has no stability in his life. He wants a home, food on the table and a high school he can attend for more than part of a year. But as the son of a single father (Travis Fimmel), working in warehouses finding some stability is hard.
Hoping for a new start they move to Portland where Charley earns cash helping out likable old racing hand Del (Steve Buscemi), who races horses in scrappy local competitions, sometimes with the help of past-it jockey Bonnie (Chloë Sevigny). Charley quickly becomes best friends with a failing racehorse named Lean on Pete. Subtitled for those with a hearing loss. Full details.

A QUIET PLACE

Living in an isolated farmhouse in Upper State New York, a family must navigate a post-apocalyptic world without making a single sound. Either that, or risk being shredded alive. In the shadows lurk spider-like creatures that hunt by sound rather than sight, and which are lying in wait for their next victim. For devoted mother and father (John Krasinski and Emily Blunt), son Marcus (Noah Jupe) and partially deaf daughter Regan (Millicent Simmonds), life turns into a deadly game of hide-and-seek. The family must walk barefoot, communicate in sign language – which they understand because of Regan’s hearing difficulties – and stifle their every breath to avoid making a noise. It’s a game that becomes even more dangerous when Blunt discovers that she’s pregnant. Staying alive means forever staying one-tiptoed-step ahead. Full details.

THE SHAPE OF WATER

It’s the Cold War era: America, 1962. A mute, isolated woman, named Elisa (Sally Hawkins), works as a cleaning lady in a hidden, high-security government lab. When she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a classified experiment – a mysterious, scaled creature from South America – their lives are set to change forever, especially as their new friend’s fate lies in the hands of a malevolent government agent and marine biologist. Hawkins plays Elisa with delicate nuance, in del Toro’s spellbinding and romantic tale of the inexplicable. Full details.

LADY BIRD

Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, she creates a coming-of-age story that is wry, funny and touchingly real.

Full details.

I, TONYA

Based on the unbelievable, but true events, this is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history.
Though Harding (an iconic performance by Margot Robbie) was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan (Caitlin Carver). Full details.

DAWSON CITY: FROZEN TIME

Bill Morrison is a master artist when it comes to the reconstruction of archive footage. He reveals a magical dance of the dead in layers of decaying nitrate stock discovered in Dawson City (Canada), 50 years after 533 reels had been buried. The North American Gold Rush of 1896 established Dawson City on the Klondike and Yukon Rivers, displacing a First Nation hunting ground. In 1903, the movies arrived as the town developed out of its whoring, drinking and gambling origins. It was so remote, the studios wouldn’t pay for the film prints to be returned so they lay buried in the permafrost until rediscovered in 1978. The soundtrack by composer and Sigur Rós oft-collaborator Alex Somers (Captain Fantastic, Riceboy Sleeps) ensures the material is astounding! Encompassing material from Pathe and European news, it reanimates lost silent movies stars, the perils of prospecting, a major baseball scandal and the expulsion of socialists after the Russian Revolution. Full details.
