BORDER (15) – 2018 Sweden/Denmark 110 mins – Swedish with subtitles

Director: Ali Abbasi Stars: Eva Melander, Eero Milonoff, Jörgen Thorsson

While customs officer Tina has an astounding sense of smell and a corresponding talent for sniffing out trouble, she’s shunned by most for her unconventional looks. When the suspicious looking Vore walks past her, Tina can’t figure out what he’s hiding, and the attraction and bond between them causes her to realise the truth about herself. From the writer of Let The Right One In, this is an unusual and enthralling blend of fantasy, horror and crime thriller.

I accidentally walked into Border and it kind of changed my life – Howard Fishman, The New Yorker …exciting, intelligent mix of romance, Nordic noir, social realism and supernatural horror that defies and subverts genre conventions – Alissa Simon, Critic’s Pick, Variety

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.
