LEAN ON PETE (15) – 2017 UK 121 min

Director: Andrew Haigh
Stars: Charlie Plummer, Steve Buscemi, Chloë Sevigny

A teenage boy (Plummer) gets casual work in a circuit of downmarket racetracks helping a trainer (Buscemi) and his part-time jockey (Sevigny). When a horse named Lean on Pete has lost once too often, boy and beast head off together, across the beautiful Oregon and Wyoming back country – desert, mountains and sage-brush, studded with small towns, truck stops, and isolated ranches. Haigh (45 Years) is “a truly great writer and director, working near the top of his game” (rogerebert.com).

Director: Armando Iannucci
Stars: Steve Buscemi, Jeffrey Tambor, Simon Russell Beale, Michael Palin

Image of film appears hereFor the leaders of the USSR, material comforts are hard to enjoy when every night could be your last, as Stalin signs off the murderous lists compiled by internal security minister Lavrentiy Beria (Beale). When Uncle Joe is struck down by a stroke, Beria sees the absurd deputy leader Malenkov (Tambor) as his ideal puppet, but Nikita Khrushchev (Buscemi) is on manoeuvres too. Iannucci (The Thick of It, Veep) has condensed the events of 1953 into a brilliant, farcical black comedy – a “delicious mockery” (The Telegraph), with a deadly serious edge.

Plus a BRIT School Showcase film, screened in partnership with the School’s Film & Media Production department.
For this film we are showing Turnips (U) (4.53 mins), directed by Clint Frift. A Borough Market stall holder discusses how the market has changed over the years.
