When she opens her front door one day to find she’s to adopt a young London evacuee named Frank, she’s resistant. It’s not long, however, before the two realize they have more in common in their pasts than Alice had assumed. Gemma Arterton, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Tom Courtenay star in this intensely emotional story of love’s endurance in trying times. IFC Films.

2020 | Dir Jessica Swale | 99min | UK

Director Jessica Swale says “Summerland is about hope, imagination and the possible existence of magic. It is about finding light after darkness, and, as such, has never felt more timely. I can’t wait to share this story, in which Gemma gives a performance unlike anything we have seen her do before, as a woman who learns to embrace life, against all odds, in all its complexity and diversity.”

The programme will also include our current BRIT School Showcase film Dementia: The Personal Element (PG, 6 min) directed by Morgan Quashie.

Vita & Virginia is the true story of the passionate relationship between literary trailblazer Virginia Woolf (Elizabeth Debicki) and the enigmatic aristocrat Vita Sackville-West (Gemma Arterton). When their paths cross, the magnetic Vita decides the beguiling, stubborn and gifted Virginia will be her next conquest, no matter the cost. Superb performances from the two leads are mixed with a detailed period feel and lush location work, especially at Knole House.

July Babes in Arms Screening

Our Monthly 11.00am Babes in Arms screening

Bringing a baby is not compulsory but we cannot guarantee a quiet auditorium during this screening! 

Intending patrons should note that the lights will not be fully dimmed during the screening and that people may need to move around.

This Month we present:

Their Finest (2016, UK), Cert. 12A

Director: Lone Scherfig
Stars: Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy

 

 

Facing a new demand for realistic Home Front movies, a London film studio hires copywriter Catrin (Arterton) to write the “slop” – industry slang for “girl talk” – to improve their product.

 

And she proves a real talent.  Soon she is working on a patriotic tale based on the Dunkirk evacuation, along with a narcissistic veteran star (Nighy) and a fellow screenwriter (Claflin) who is more appealing than her boorish husband.

With Arterton at the head of an excellent British cast, Their Finest is “a funny, winning, beautifully acted ode to working women and cinema” (Empire).

 

Here are links to a Review from The Guardian , including links to a Trailer and an interview with the stars.

 

The trailer on its own can be seen here:
