The Lost City (PG)
Reclusive author Loretta Sage (Sandra Bullock) writes about exotic places in her popular adventure novels that feature hunky, though dim witted, cover model Alan (Channing Tatum). While on tour promoting her new book Loretta gets kidnapped by an eccentric billionaire (Nicely played by Daniel Radcliffe) who hopes she can lead him to an ancient city's lost treasure. Determined to prove he can be a hero in real life, Alan sets off to rescue her. Bullock is great at playing the ditsy heroine and with Tatum happy to lampoon his public image, and a surprise appearance from another Hollywood A-lister, this looks an absolute crowd pleaser.
“Riotously funny, supremely silly and with star power in spades, The Lost City is a real gem of an action comedy.” Radio Times
This English language film is being screened with subtitles for the hard of hearing.

Lauren lives near the border with her partner, when her troubled sister Kelly returns home after a mysterious yearlong absence, her return revives painful memories of their mother, who took her own life when they were both children. Yet Kelly’s homecoming also relights the spirit in the hearts of both women, as they challenge the local men who are still in hock to the macho cult of terrorist violence. It’s a gripping 85 minutes that never gets too dark and shows there is always hope.
“Wildfire is a powerful 85 minutes filled with great complexity and some potent visual flourishes that emerge from the understated direction.” Common Sense Media

After Love (12A)
The great Joanna Scanlan (where do we start, Gentleman Jack, The Larkins, Getting On, Bridget Jones, No Offence, The Thick of It, the list goes on!) gets a well-deserved lead role as Mary, a widow who discovers her husband had a secret family overseas. Mary travels to France to meet her husband’s other wife, Genevieve, and gets mistaken by her for her new cleaner. Moving into Genevieve’s home without disclosing her true identity , Mary gets to know her husband’s other wife and child. A lovely film about secrets, forgiveness, grief and togetherness.
