In 1970, the Miss World competition took place in London, hosted by US comedy legend, Bob Hope. At the time, Miss World was the most-watched TV show on the planet with over 100 million viewers. Claiming that beauty competitions demeaned women, the newly formed Women’s Liberation Movement achieved overnight fame by invading the stage and disrupting the live broadcast of the competition. Not only that, when the show resumed, the result caused uproar: the winner was not the Swedish favourite but Miss Grenada, the first black woman to be crowned Miss World. In a matter of hours, a global audience had witnessed the patriarchy driven from the stage and the Western ideal of beauty turned on its head.

In 2003 a GCHQ translator receives an email requesting compromising details on UN representatives so they can be blackmailed into voting for the Iraq war.  Horrified, she engineers that email onto the Observer’s front page.  Katharine Gun (Knightley) is prosecuted and her Turkish husband’s deportation hastened.  She has only worked intermittently since.  Neither her revelation nor one million people marching that year derailed the war. Keira Knightley is excellent in Gavin Hood’s (Eye in the Sky) unmissable whistleblower thriller.

★★★★ “Keira Knightley shines as a very British whistleblower” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

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.
