September 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:

My cousin rachel (2017, UK/USA), Cert. 12A

Director: Roger Michell         
Stars: Sam Claflin, Rachel Weisz, Holliday Grainger, Iain Glen 

A fine British cast lead this adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s 1951 tale of a young man plotting revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin. 

Du Maurier’s books were already popular with Hollywood (‘Rebecca’, ‘Jamaica Inn’, ‘Frenchman’s Creek’) and ‘My Cousin Rachel’ was moved to the big screen almost as soon as it was published, in 1952, with Olivia de Havilland and Richard Burton in the lead roles.

Phillip (Claflin) has been orphaned at an early age, with his older cousin Ambrose becoming his guardian.  He suspects Ambrose’s wife Rachel (eponymously played by Rachel Weisz) of poisoning Ambrose and when the widow turns up at the Cornish family home he is deeply suspicious.

 

 

 

 

However, he quickly falls under her spell.  But if his suspicions were right, does the same fate await him?

 

 

 

As well as a more modern sensibility from director and screenwriter Michell (Notting Hill, Enduring Love, Le Weekend), this gripping new production also features gorgeous Devon and Florence locations.

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.

Denial (2016 UK/USA) Cert. 12A

Extra screening to meet demand
Director: Mick Jackson
Stars: Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Spall

American historian Deborah Lipstadt is shocked when British academic David Irving interrupts her lecture – and her professional future is threatened when she is the target of his libel suit.

 

With the burden of proof upon her, Lipstadt’s legal team, led by Anthony Julius QC (Scott), must demonstrate that Irving knowingly obscured evidence of the Holocaust.

 

 

Weisz and Spall both excel as the stubborn intellectuals, with Irving’s arrogance and self-deception especially showing Spall at the height of his powers.

 

 

Adapted by David Hare from Lipstadt’s book “History on Trial”, this is “One of the most powerful and riveting courtroom dramas ever made” (New York Observer).

 

Here are links to two articles about the film from The Guardian: the recent Review accompanying the UK release and an earlier piece by David Hare, written at the time of the Toronto International Film Festival premiere, on the issues he faced in bringing Lipstadt’s book to the big screen.

But the couple meet a woman (Weisz) on the mainland who has lost her husband and child in circumstances that match their fortuitous find.

It seems the child’s biological mother is not dead, and they are forced to deal with the consequences of their decision to keep the baby.

 

Cianfrance (Blue Valentine) and his Academy Award winning cast have crafted a heartrending period drama.
