The Beguiled (2017 USA) 93 mins, Cert. 15

Screenings at 2.30 & 7.30

Director: Sofia Coppola
Stars: Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning

Virginia.

1864.

The Civil War rages.

Teachers Martha (Kidman) and Edwina (Dunst) shelter their boarding school girls from the Civil War.

 

 

But when they take in a wounded enemy soldier (Farrell), providing refuge and tending to his wounds an air of sexual tension builds and dangerous rivalries ensue after an unexpected turn of events.

 

 

With her distinctive slow burning style, Coppola (Lost In Translation) adapts Thomas Cullinan’s 1966 novel into a darkly entertaining drama brimming with wonderfully nuanced performances.

 

Plus BRIT School Showcase film London.wav (2016, 3 mins), directed by Samuel Marino.  This montage of London images, precisely synchronised to music, launches a new partnership involving the School’s Film & Media Production department.
A different film will be shown at selected screenings each month.
 

 

Here is a link to the Review by The Guardian , which places the 2017 film alongside the 1966 novel and the 1971 Don Siegel / Clint Eastwood take on the tale.

Lion (2016, Australia/USA) Cert. PG – partially subtitled

Additional Additional Afternoon screening!

Director: Garth Davis
Stars: Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara

 

 

Saroo and his family live a hand-to-mouth existence in a small Indian village. One night while out scavenging, he gets separated from his brother Guddu and after climbing aboard a parked train, falls asleep and wakes up utterly lost and alone in Calcutta.

Fast forward a couple of decades….

Having been adopted by an Australian couple, a chance encounter with a taste (literally) of his earlier life triggers long lost (or buried) memories and sends the adult Saroo off on a search for his original family, but the clues he has to their whereabouts are sketchy.

 

 

Ravishing photography of India and Australia, together with standout performances by the star actors, Patel as the adult Saroo and Kidman (hot tip for best supporting actress) as his adoptive mother, make this a truly heartrending true-life story.

 

“As enthralling as it is emotional” (Hollywood Reporter).
