Babes in Arms screening – COLETTE (15) – 2018 UK/USA 111 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: Wash Westmoreland
Stars: Keira Knightley, Dominic West, Denise Gough, Fiona Shaw

Kiera Knightley plays Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, a young country innocent who marries the much older Willy (Dominic West), a Parisian literary lion. She soon discovers that he in fact runs a writer’s factory, passing off other’s work as his own. When she writes a semi-autobiographical novel for him, their financial worries appear to be over. But as she rejects her philandering husband for lovers of her own, can she discover her own personality and voice? The two leads are excellent, and fin de siècle Paris is lovingly created – in Leeds.

THE SQUARE (15) – 2017 Swe/Ger/Fra/Den 151 min – partially subtitled

Director: Ruben Östlund
Stars: Claes Bang, Elisabeth Moss, Dominic West

Image from the film

Christian is the prestigious curator of an art museum in Stockholm. His next installation? ‘The Square’, an exhibit that invites passers-by to embrace an altruistic lifestyle. However, Christian’s reaction to the theft of his phone leads him into shameful situations, and his chosen PR agents create a shocking promotional campaign for ‘The Square’, sending Christian and the museum into a spiralling crisis. With pitch-perfect performances and cutting deadpan wit, this Cannes Palme d’Or winner is a hilarious, unique observation on idealism and cynicism in the modern world.
