Grace Van Patten, Emily Mortimer, Ebon Moss-Bachr, Nat Wolff

Actress Dolly Wells’ directorial debut exposes introvert life in this engaging coming of age drama. Lillian, excellently played by Grace Van Patten, an “entitled oaf” is dumped by equally selfish Dad on Julia Price (Emily Mortimer) a successful writer. Hostilities commence at the first awkward meal, then they start communicating via tetchily witty notes. Established writers, satirically playing themselves at interview, punctuate the film; Zadie Smith and Jonathan Ames talk on Julia’s work and perfection while Martin Amis dismisses happiness.

Peter Bradshaw’s view on “this coolly comic tale of love and lies” in The Guardian.

The programme will also include our current BRIT School Showcase film Evening (U, 3 mins), a Year 12 music video directed by Alice Pearson, James Mason and Rachel Goulding. The music is by Will Beresford. We look forward to welcoming Alice, James and Rachel for a short Q&A that will take place after the 12 November screening.

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.
