LITTLE JOE

LITTLE JOE
Tuesday 28 April 2020 at 7.30pm

Emily Beecham, Ben Whishaw, Kerry Fox

Alice, a single mother, is a dedicated senior plant breeder at a corporation engaged in developing new species. She has engineered a very special crimson flower, remarkable not only for its beauty but also for its therapeutic value: if kept at the ideal temperature, fed properly and spoken to regularly, this plant makes its owner happy.

Against company policy, Alice takes one home as a gift for her teenage son, Joe. They christen it ‘Little Joe’ but as it grows, so too does Alice’s suspicion that her new creations may not be as harmless as their nickname suggests.

Wednesday 11 March 2020 at 2.30pm (Subtitled) and 7.30pm

Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw

Armando Iannucci follows The Death of Stalin with a characteristically exuberant reworking of the Dickens classic. Using visual tropes that are more comic-book than Victorian novel, and a varied but vibrant cast headed by Dev Patel in the title role, this is at once funny and colourful, as well as poignant and hard-hitting on the subjects of poverty, class difference and child exploitation. Nothing less than you’d expect from the man who gave us Alan Partridge and The Thick of It, with characters like Mr Micawber and Uriah Heep given new life by Capaldi and Whishaw.

Babes in Arms screening – THE FAVOURITE (15) – 2018 Ireland/UK/USA 119 mins

Monthly 11.00 am Babes in Arms screening
Bringing a baby is not compulsory, but we cannot guarantee a quiet auditorium! Lights will not be fully dimmed, sound will be lower than usual and people may need to move around. When available, subtitles will be shown. The babes in arms may be up to one year old.

Director: Yorgos Lanthimos
Stars: Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz

While her armies war with France, Queen Anne’s courtiers are more interested in satisfying the whims of their frail monarch (Colman). Lady Sarah Churchill (Weisz) is firmly ensconced as the queen’s favourite, but her young cousin Abigail (Stone) is upwardly mobile. Lanthimos (The Lobster) and his fantastic cast ensure that this is no typical period drama, revelling in the smut, scandal and perversity of an era where power could not be separated from personality.
