THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD
Wednesday 11 March 2020 at 2.30pm (Subtitled) and 7.30pm

Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw

Armando Iannucci follows The Death of Stalin with a characteristically exuberant reworking of the Dickens classic. Using visual tropes that are more comic-book than Victorian novel, and a varied but vibrant cast headed by Dev Patel in the title role, this is at once funny and colourful, as well as poignant and hard-hitting on the subjects of poverty, class difference and child exploitation. Nothing less than you’d expect from the man who gave us Alan Partridge and The Thick of It, with characters like Mr Micawber and Uriah Heep given new life by Capaldi and Whishaw.

THE SOUVENIR

THE SOUVENIR 
Thursday 21 November 2019 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm

Honor Swinton Byrne, Tom Burke, Tilda Swinton

Acclaimed director Joanna Hogg’s mesmerising fourth film is a semi-autobiographical memoir of a toxic relationship that almost breaks a young woman starting out at film school. Tom Burke’s Anthony, the seductive quiet destroyer, is a strong screen presence. The Souvenir of the title is a painting from a bygone century and Hogg tackles her familiar themes of class, privilege and who has the accessibility to create art. Stylistically she avoids traditional film conventions preferring to work with body language.

The extraordinary Gertrude Bell was an English writer, linguist, archaeologist, diplomat and spy, with an unmatched first-hand knowledge of late 19th and early 20th century Arabia.  This fascinating documentary reveals her power and the crucial role she played in forming British policy in what is now Iraq.

The film is based on Bell’s letters – voiced by Tilda Swinton – presented via a combination of high-quality original footage and familiar actors representing key characters.

This unmissable personal and professional story provides an acute, revealing and sometimes chilling foretaste of current Middle Eastern troubles.

 

Here are links to a Review from The Guardian and a brief description of the making of the film from the production company.
