A Beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood (PG)
Tom Hanks plays legendary (In the US at least) children’s TV show presenter, Fred Rogers. When investigative journalist Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys) is assigned to write a profile, he approaches Fred with scepticism, surely no-one can be that kind and good? But as Fred’s essential decency chips away at Vogel’s jaded character, the reporter has to face up to his own painful past. There can be no-one better than Hanks to embody American greatness in a tale of acceptance, faith and understanding. So come along, just sit back and enjoy.
“What a difference a day makes, when it's a day as beautiful as this.” London Evening Standard
2019. Drama. US. 109 minutes

Dark Waters (12A)
Director Todd Haynes’ (Carol) latest was sadly overlooked last year, and we do love a courtroom drama, especially one based on a true story. When a huge chemical company pollutes a small town with an unregulated substance, local lawyer Robert Bilott sues and quickly becomes a target for their underhand tactics, risking his life and family in the process. Mark Ruffalo, Anne Hathaway and Tim Robbins star in this unshowy, solid thriller.
“The director and his leading man have turned a dry legal battle into a gripping yarn, without sacrificing tension and with some superb acting in a fine drama about justice finally being served.” RTE Ireland
2020. Drama. US. 127 minutes

Corpus Christi (15)
Daniel’s dreams of joining the priesthood after serving time in prison are dashed when he discovers his crimes disqualify him. On release he is sent to work in a sawmill but while visiting a nearby church he pretends to be a priest. Believing his lies, the local vicar leaves him in charge while he departs for medical treatment. Daniel’s unorthodox approach soon uncovers a dark secret at the heart of the village and his quest for forgiveness brings him unwanted attention. What sounds like the set up for a comedy of misunderstandings turns into a tale of faith, love and redemption, in this acclaimed film, nominated for Best International Film at the 2020 Oscars. Subtitled.
“It's flawless storytelling, effortlessly played and with a rousing conclusion.” The Times
2019. Poland. Drama. 116 minutes

Saint Frances (15)
You’ll be hard pushed to find a bad review of this smart, funny and touching comedy drama, a deserved winner at many a film festival in 2019. Drifting thirtysomething Bridget leads a fairly aimless life, waitressing while never knowing what she truly wants. While dealing with emotional repercussions from a pregnancy termination she takes a job as a nanny to a smart six year old girl, Frances. As the summer progresses and her relationship with Frances develops, Bridget starts to get a better understanding of herself and her hopes.
“It's this lightness of touch that makes this beautiful film so appealing: just because you're laughing, it doesn't mean you're not taking a subject seriously.” Irish Independent.
2020. USA. Drama. 101 minutes

Judy & Punch (15)
We're always keen on Australian films, and we love debut from a new voice in cinema, here's both in an intriguing and unusual take on a familiar story.
In the 17th century, Judy and Punch are puppeteers in the town of Seaside, England, who are attempting to bring their marionette show back into the public eye. Judy wins the crowd with her puppetry but Punch’s drinking and jealousy leads him to commit a terrible act. Judy then rallies the town’s outcasts to help her take revenge. This darkly comic film is a feminist take on the origins of Punch & Judy and showcases classic characters in a new light.
“What a killer debut this is; that's the way to do it!” The Guardian
2019. 105 minutes. Australia
Tues August 17th
Two Australian films in a row?! Yes, because we can! And when they're this good, you have to. When a seriously ill teenager falls for a small-time drug dealer, her parents disapprove. However, she soon finds a new lust for life from her blossoming romance. A cliched sounding set up morphs into something truly special with fantastic performances from Eliza Scanlen (Little Women), Essie Davies and Ben Mendelsohn (Darkest Hour) and a script that never slips into sentimentality. You'll laugh one minute, cry the next, and rave about it afterwards.
“This debut feature is well acted, heartfelt, beautifully filmed.” The Guardian
2020. 118 minutes. Australia
