Three very different films showing at the David Lean this week but relationships are a common theme.
November’s Babes in Arms screening is another chance to see Paweł Pawlikowski’s masterpiece, Cold War, on Tuesday at 11am.
Winning best director award at Cannes in May, it also had a five star Guardian review by Mark Kermode. Not hard to see why this complex love story set with the backdrop of post war Poland is getting such high praise.
Tuesday evening’s film is Tehran Taboo, showing at 7.30pm.
Using rotoscope animation, expat Iranian filmmaker Ali Soozandeh creates a portrait of contemporary life in Iran’s capital, broaching topics that may otherwise be impossible to tell.
The Wife, with Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce, has 2 screenings on Thursday and is virtually sold out at the time of writing.
