LGBT History Month Screening – COLETTE (15) – 2018 UK/USA 111 mins

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 Hippopotamus (2017 UK) 89 mins, Cert. 15

Screenings at 2.30 & 7.30

Director: John Jencks
Stars: Roger Allam, Matthew Modine, Tim McInnerny, Fiona Shaw 

When lapsed poet, failed drama critic, and unapologetic drunk Ted Wallace (Roger Allam) is fired from his newspaper job, he jumps at an invitation to forget his blunders by investigating an unusual case.

 

 

Ted is tasked with solving the mystery behind a series of spiritual healings at his friend’s country estate. The miracle worker? His teenage godson, David.

 

He must prove the miracles are a hoax and at the same time save the young man from embarrassment, before it’s too late.

 

 

This lively adaptation of Stephen Fry’s novel boasts a wonderfully entertaining cast.

 

Here are links to: a Review from modern media review site Flickering Myth and (curioser and curiouser) an interview in The Radio Times with Roger Allam on the making of the film.

The review does not include a link to a Trailer, but the Radio Times article does.  It can also be seen below
