GRADUATION 'BACALAUREAT' (15)
2016 Romania/France/Belgium 128 mins (subtitled)
This century, Romanian cinema has thrived, with talented directors crafting a succession of distinctively naturalistic films. The Los Angeles Times considers Cristi Puiu's 'The Death of Mr. Lazarescu' (2005) the start of this 'New Wave', adding that ever since: "Romanians have turned out complex, interesting and subtle work, reliably, every year, often by using their signature long shots and rigorous minimalism." Cristian Mungiu's latest film GRADUATION follows in this tradition and won him a Best Director prize at Cannes last year. It's an absorbing drama that explores the difficult decisions that parents wishing to help a beloved daughter could be faced with. “A masterly, complex movie of psychological subtlety and moral weight” (The Guardian).

A QUIET PASSION (12A) 2016 UK/Belgium 125 mins
Director: Terence Davies
Stars: Cynthia Nixon, Jennifer Ehle, Duncan Duff, Keith Carradine
Davies moves from the landscapes of Scotland in Sunset Song to the interiors of Massachusetts in the intimate biography of the reclusive poet Emily Dickinson, brilliantly played by Nixon. Dickinson tries to battle against the social norms of her day, but slowly becomes confined to her family home in Amherst, all the time creating poetry that is skilfully highlighted within Davies’s script. Beautifully photographed and with fine performances by a mixture of American and British actors, 'A Quiet Passion' brings out the wit and melancholy of this great writer.
