poster from filmIn March 1918, an army company take their posting on a front-line trench, knowing that a German attack is imminent. With supplies as low as the men’s morale, this is no place for new recruit Raleigh (Butterfield), who has requested a placement with Stanhope (Claflin), his sister’s fiancé, now much changed through war stresses and alcohol. Director Dibb (The Duchess) captures the dread-inducing claustrophobia of the trenches in this outstanding adaptation of RC Sherriff’s 1928 play.

Plus a BRIT School Showcase film, screened in partnership with the School’s Film & Media Production department.
For this film we are showing For King and Country (2.59 mins), directed by George O’Regan.

Tale of Tales-quad poster 600

Director: Matteo Garrone
Stars: Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones, John C. Reilly

Based on three fairy tales by Giambattista Basile, this “fantastically mad, rigorously imagined and visually tremendous” film is certainly not one for children.

Tale-of-Tales column 200



In one tale, a king and queen (Reilly and Hayek) must kill a monster to solve the problem of childlessness.


Meanwhile, another sex-mad monarch (Cassel) is tricked by an aged crone, with nightmarish results.



And Toby Jones’ king becomes obsessed with a giant flea and so jeopardises the marriage chances of his daughter.
