Baby Driver (2017 UK/USA) Cert. 15

Director: Edgar Wright         
Stars: Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx

Wright’s music-driven feature introduces Elgort as the eponymous Baby – the young getaway driver using his iPod to control his life and drown out his tinnitus.

Indebted to callous criminal kingpin Doc (Spacey), Baby awaits his day of freedom.

 

 

While waiting for his personal ‘independance day’ Baby meets a charming waitress (James) and the two bond over their love of music.

 

Baby soon decides to whisk her off on a never-ending road trip after his last job, but Doc has other plans……

 

Baby Driver is a captivating thrill-ride featuring a stellar cast.

Elvis & Nixon (2016, US) 86 mins, cert. 15

E&N quad 600

Screenings at 2.30 and 7.30pm

Director: Liza Johnson
Stars: Michael Shannon, Kevin Spacey, Alex Pettyfer, Johnny Knoxville

 E&N the taking of column 200

 

The most requested image in the US Government’s National Archive is a photograph of President Richard Nixon with Elvis Presley.

 

 

 

E&N the posing for column 200

 

 

It seems that Presley (Shannon) made a request to become a drug enforcement agent, and, as a result was able to visit Nixon (Spacey) in the Oval Office on December 21st 1970.

 

 

 

While we’ll never know what really happened when these two mighty egos met in one room (or what was discussed), a photograph WAS taken to preserve the event for posterity.  This fictional account is both entertaining and very amusing.
