A PRIVATE WAR (15) – 2018 UK/USA 110 mins

Director: Matthew Heineman
Stars: Rosamund Pike, Jamie Dornan, Tom Hollander, Stanley Tucci

Marie Colvin was an acclaimed war correspondent working for the Sunday Times. With her cameraman Paul Conroy, she entered the Syrian city of Homs, just as Assad’s forces began attacking the refugees there, and died in the consequent bombing. The film follows Colvin’s career from Sri Lanka (where she loses an eye) to Afghanistan and Libya, showing how PTSD affected her personal and professional relationships. Rosamund Pike gives a gritty performance as this heroic, but damaged, journalist.

(Rosamund) Pike… is never less than convincing, inviting audiences into the minefield of Colvin’s mind – Peter Debruge, Critic’s Pick, Variety

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY (12A) – 2018 UK/USA 134 min

Director: Bryan Singer
Stars: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Tom Hollander, Mike Myers

It’s taken a long time to reach the screen, but the film biography of Queen’s lead singer certainly delivers, thanks to Rami Malek’s near-perfect impersonation of Freddie Mercury, from his humble origins as a baggage handler to world superstardom, and the highs and lows that followed. The movie excels in the painstaking recreation of Queen’s music, and of key moments such as the Wembley Live Aid concert. It will rock you!
