ON THE BASIS OF SEX (12A) – 2018 USA 120 mins

The 2.30pm screening is subtitled for people with hearing loss

Director: Mimi Leder
Stars: Felicity Jones, Armie Hammer, Justin Theroux, Kathy Bates

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has become an iconic figure, using formidable legal arguments to enshrine the rights of women and minority groups, with inspirational wit, style and charisma. In Leder’s dramatic retelling, Jones channels the balance of resilience, idealism and pragmatism that saw Ginsburg progress through a hostile Harvard Law School – where she both met her husband Marty (Hammer) and nursed him through illness – to secure groundbreaking legal reform in her first major case and change American public life forever.

“On the Basis of Sex” does a brisk, coherent job of articulating what Ginsburg accomplished and why it mattered” – A.O. Scott, The New York Times

Final Portrait (2017 UK/USA) 90 mins, Cert. 15

Screenings at 2.30 & 7.30

Director: Stanley Tucci
Stars: Geoffrey Rush, Armie Hammer, Clémence Poésy, Tony Shalhoub

When art dealer James Lord (Hammer) agrees to sit for the great Alberto Giacometti (the ever-excellent Rush), he expects it to take a matter of days – yet progress proves maddeningly slow, and Lord is gradually drawn into Giacometti’s complicated personal life.

Tucci applies a light comic touch to this study of a celebrated artist in his final years, creating “a delightful Paris chamber piece” (The Telegraph).
