Chichester Cinema We are oh so very excited about this coming Summer here at New Park. Without going into too much detail about the wealth of quality films that we have on offer (don’t miss ‘Frantz’, ‘The Levelling’, ‘My Cousin Rachel’, ‘The Zookeeper’s Wife’, ‘McLaren’, ‘Churchill’), or the wide array of Performance cinema (‘Hokusai’, ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’, ‘Berlin Philharmonic Live’, ‘Michelangelo’…), or even the Australian Season in partnership with Pallant House Gallery, we will be renovating our dear auditorium with new seating, as well as a brand new heating and ventilation system. All this will be completed in time for the Opening Gala of the 26th Chichester International Film Festival on Thursday August 10th. From that day on, we will have an auditorium up to the very high standards that we have always set ourselves, with the films we programme for our dedicated patrons. See you at the Cinema

The Zookeeper’s Wife The real-life story of one working wife and mother who became a hero to hundreds during World War II. World War II was the source of dozens of instances of benevolence and bravery. But few top the actions taken by the Polish couple who risked retaliation from the Nazis for hiding 300 Jews at the Warsaw Zoo. In 1939 Poland, Antonina Żabińska (Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr Jan Żabiński (Johan Heldenbergh) have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under their care. When Poland is invaded by the Germans, Jan and Antonina are forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck (Daniel Brühl). To fight back on their own terms, the couple covertly begin working with the Resistance – and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto. Director Caro (‘Whale Rider’) seems unbound by her audience’s expectations of a WWII film, delivering a singular, thrilling portrait, filled with surprises and moving performances.

Cezanne and I This 19th-century period drama (screened to two sellout audiences in our French Film Festival in Nov 17) stars Guillaume Gallienne as Paul Cezanne and Guillaume Canet as Emile Zola. This film features beautiful Provence, and charts the friendship between Cezanne, who was born into a wealthy family but struggled to make a living as a painter, and Zola, who came from a family of more straitened circumstances but achieved fame and prosperity as a politically-engaged novelist.

Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, this is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present. In 1979, James Baldwin hoped to create a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and assassinations of three of his close friends – Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin’s death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages. This brilliant documentary envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. US 2016 Raoul Peck 93m.

RSC (Recorded Live) Caesar returns from war, all-conquering, but mutiny is rumbling through the corridors of power. The Rome season in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford, opens with the politics of spin and betrayal turning to violence. Following his sell-out productions of Tom Morton-Smith’s ‘Oppenheimer’ (2014) and James Fenton’s adaptation of ‘Don Quixote’ (2016), Season Director Angus Jackson steers the thrilling action as the race to claim the empire spirals out of control. ‘Antony and Cleopatra’ follows. 180m approx including interval.

McLaren On the same weekend as the Monaco Grand Prix, we bring you the inspiring and moving story of motor racing legend Bruce McLaren. This film is screening in a very limited number of cinemas around the country. The name McLaren is synonymous with motor racing excellence and stands today as a symbol for automotive superiority. Yet what is less known is that the brand was the creation of one young man from New Zealand – a pioneer who followed his dream and who against all odds led a team to greatness and himself to become a motorsport champion and hero. Despite the tragic end to his life, Bruce’s legacy lives on and his vision, passion and drive to innovate continues to be at the heart of advanced motor engineering to this day. A truly inspirational story of a young boy from humble birth who dared to take on the elite world of motor racing and win. New Zealand 2016 Roger Donaldson 93m.

With a 9/10 average rating on the leading film critics’ website, this film is not to be missed. ‘Sight and Sound’ are already calling it a modern genre classic. Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener) and Dean (Bradley Whitford). At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behaviour as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined. Jordan Peele’s debut film is a brilliantly inventive horror that skewers the insecurities and injustices of modern America, and Brit actor Kaluuya brings a wry intelligence to his role as the straight man to the film’s many eccentric characters. USA 2017 Jordan Peele 104m.

Set in Somerset, this is a superbly crafted drama with a powerful sense of place, which may be the best debut film of the year. Trainee veterinarian Clover Catto returns to the farm where she grew up after hearing news that her brother Harry has died in what appears to be a suicide. Finding the family home in a state of horrendous disrepair following the 2014 floods that devastated the area, Clover is forced to confront her father Aubrey about the farm, the livestock and, crucially, the details surrounding Harry’s death. Clover’s discoveries send her on an emotional journey of reckoning with her family, her childhood and herself. Critics are drooling over this first offering from a director who has shown the skill and subtlety of a seasoned veteran. UK 2016 Hope Dickson Leach 83m.

The Eagle Huntress A stunning rites-of-passage story about a young woman who dares to dream of becoming the first ever female entrant to the ‘Golden Eagle’ competition in her Mongolian homeland. 13-year-old Aisholpan trains to become the first female in twelve generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter, and rises to the pinnacle of a tradition that has been handed down from father to son for centuries. While there are many old Kazakh eagle hunters who vehemently reject the idea of any female taking part in their ancient tradition, Aisholpan’s father Nurgaiv believes that a girl can do anything a boy can. With some of the most amazing cinematography ever seen, this breath-taking documentary narrated by Daisy Ridley (‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’), shows when we encourage our daughters, amazing things happen. UK 2016 Otto Bell 87m. BOX OFFICE 01243 786 650
SIDNEY NOLAN AND AUSTRALIAN CINEMA
AUSTRALIAN FILM SEASON Chichester Cinema at New Park in partnership with Pallant House Gallery present a programme of four Australian classic feature films, plus a documentary and illustrated talk to accompany the exhibition ‘Transferences: Sidney Nolan in Britain’ on display at Pallant House Gallery until 4 June 2017.
Sun 21 May 18:00 Rare 35mm Print
The legendary outlaw Ned Kelly (Mick Jagger) was an inspiration for Sidney Nolan. Here screening in a rare 35mm print! Mick Jagger stars as Ned Kelly, a legendary outlaw of the Australian outback sought by authorities for stealing horses. At age 20, Ned has already served a three-year prison term. When his mother (Clarissa Kaye) is arrested and jailed on a bogus murder charge, Ned offers to surrender in exchange for his mother’s freedom. When the authorities refuse, the Kelly brothers go on a robbing rampage. Tony Richardson’s film has divided opinion in the 40+ years since its release, but it has received cult status. It is a film which contains both sublime, rain-soaked landscapes accompanied by the lilting songs of Kris Kristofferson. The film’s fun spirit, excellent soundtrack and superb cinematography and heartfelt (if rather biased) portrayal of the film’s hero, makes ‘Ned Kelly’ an entertaining and worthwhile watch, aided by Jagger’s strong, often scenestealing performance. UK/Australia 1970 Tony Richardson 100m.

Nicholas Roeg’s wonderfully uplifting portrait of Aboriginal culture and respect to the rugged and often barren Australian outback. Very few films achieve subliminal greatness with cross-cultural impact, but ‘Walkabout’ is one of those films – a visual tone poem that functions more as an allegory than a conventionally plotted adventure. Considered a cult favourite for years, Roeg’s 1971 film centres upon two British children who are rescued in the Australian outback by a young aborigine. Through exquisite cinematography and a story of subtle human complexity, the film continues to resonate on many thematic and artistic levels. Just as Roeg intended, it is a cautionary morality tale in which the limitations and restrictions of civilisation become painfully clear when the two children (played by Jenny Agutter and Roeg’s young son, Lucien John) cannot survive without the aborigine’s assistance. UK/Australia 1971 Nicholas Roeg 98m.

Picnic at Hanging Rock
Peter Weir’s Australian classic film is an ethereal, dreamlike adaptation of Joan Lindsay’s classic novel when a group of girls disappear while exploring the upper slopes of the rock. St Valentine’s Day, 1900. On a beautiful summer day, a party of Australian schoolgirls from an exclusive finishing school prepare for an excursion to Hanging Rock, a magnificent natural monument drenched in a mysterious atmosphere. But when a group of girls disappear while exploring the upper slopes, an eerie foreboding touches all involved in the excursion. Based on the classic novel by Joan Lindsay, this classic film helped revive the Australian film industry and established Director Peter Weir as a major international talent.

A young woman goes on a 1,700 mile trek across the deserts of West Australia with her four camels and faithful dog. Based on the true story of Robyn Davidson who in 1977 undertook an extraordinary solo trek by foot across the harsh Australian outback, John Curran’s (‘The Painted Veil’) mesmerising film is a paean to both one woman’s courage and to the magnificent land she traverses. When Robyn (Mia Wasikowska) arrives in Alice Springs she has nothing but her pet dog and a wild ambition that the locals pay no heed to, but after months of camping out and working on a camel farm, they begin to take her seriously. Her last obstacle is money, and when she meets photographer Rick Smolan (Adam Driver) she reluctantly agrees to sacrifice some of her solitude so that her journey can be documented and sponsored by National Geographic. Australia/USA 2013 John Curran 110m.

Mask and Memory: Sidney Nolan
Introduced by Simon Martin, Director of Pallant House Gallery. A documentary about the artist many regard as the greatest Australian painter of the twentieth century – Sidney Nolan (1917-1992). Sidney Nolan is the subject of a current exhibition at Pallant House Gallery marking the artist’s centenary, complimented by this documentary. If all art has a biographical element, this was dramatically true in the case of Nolan. Through interviews with friends, contemporaries and observers, producer Catherine Hunter reconstructs the intimate relationships that shaped Nolan’s life: the women he loved, and who loved him. With the evocative voice of Judy Davis as narrator, and a haunting soundtrack by Amanda Brown, ‘Mask and Memory’ brings his extraordinary story to life. Australia 2009 Catherine Hunter 54m plus intro.

Figures in the Landscape Myth and Legend in Australian Art and Cinema Australian film historian Stephen Morgan will lead us on a journey through some of the intersections of Australian art and cinema, and their depictions of unique lives and landscapes. Through film clips and reproductions of key artworks, we will encounter the myths and legends surrounding Rebels like Ned Kelly (Tony Richardson, 1970), Explorers like Robyn from Tracks (John Curran, 2013), and Strangers such as the Victorian schoolgirls in Picnic at Hanging Rock (Peter Weir, 1975). Strangers are also central to Walkabout (Nicolas Roeg, 1971), which will introduce the fourth and final section, Country, which surveys closer relationships with landscape via the figure of the Indigenous Australian. An educator, archivist, and historian, Stephen Morgan recently completed his PhD at King’s College London with a thesis entitled ‘Ealing Down Under: Nation, Empire and the Australian Films of Ealing Studios, 1945-1960’.

It Was Fifty Years Ago Today... Sgt Pepper and Beyond On the 1st June 1967, The Beatles released ‘Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’… and changed the course of music! It was, quite literally “50 years ago today, that Sgt Pepper taught the band to play”, and this new documentary celebrates that landmark event in popular music history. Focusing on the 12 months surrounding the recording of what is possibly the most iconic album ever made, director Alan G Parker makes use of rare archival footage to tell his story, along with a range of interviews with subjects including original drummer Pete Best, John Lennon’s sister Julia and Hunter Davies. Examining the band’s disillusionment with touring and the controversies that defined the 60s generation – from drugs to blasphemy – the film give us several first-hand accounts of what would become the world’s first concept album. UK 2017 Alan G Parker 113m.

A fictional account of the extraordinary story of two implacable enemies in Northern Ireland – firebrand Democratic Unionist Party leader Ian Paisley and Sinn Fein politician Martin McGuinness. A key moment in British politics is dramatized in ‘The Journey’, which imagines a car ride as the event that led the rival leaders to the 2006 St. Andrews Agreement, which ended decades of violence in Northern Ireland. Timothy Spall plays the ferocious Paisley, while Colm Meaney is the more easy-going McGuinness, who were forced to confront one another (and their issues) during a minivan trip to Edinburgh to catch a flight back to Belfast. Their driver was a British agent (Freddie Highmore) charged with monitoring their conversation to Tony Blair (Toby Stephens) and an MI-5 expert (John Hurt). A film with heart, humour, charm and even a little healthy mischief. UK 2016 Nick Hamm 94m.

The Secret Scripture A psychiatrist (Eric Bana) examines Roseanne McNulty (Vanessa Redgrave), an elderly Irishwoman living in a mental institution, and learns more about her past in the process. Rose has been a resident for more than 40 years for killing her baby, but she remains adamant that her son lives. Rooney Mara plays Roseanne as a young woman in flashbacks that detail her love triangle with a fighter pilot (Jack Reynor) and a priest (Theo James). The film is beautifully shot, the performances are very good and the story is very engaging. In its portrayal of female sexuality it is also shockingly pertinent. Directed by Jim Sheridan (‘My Left Foot’, ‘In the Name of the Father’), ‘The Secret Scripture’ is based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Sebastian Barry. Ireland 2016 Jim Sheridan 108m.

This documentary offers a uniquely personal portrait of a most singular man and dancer, Sergei Polunin. Blessed with astonishing power and poise, Polunin took the dance world by storm and became the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal. At the peak of his success, aged 25, he walked away, driven to the brink of self-destruction by stardom – his talent more a burden than a gift. From archive footage of Polunin training at the age of 6 to be an Olympic gymnast, to intimate material shot by both his parents, and in-depth interviews with family, friends and colleagues through to footage of Sergei’s life on and off the stage now, we witness every step of his journey.

Glyndebourne Violetta gives up every hope of happiness in this heart-wrenching love story. With its world-famous arias, ‘La Traviata’ is the perfect introduction to Glyndebourne. Alfredo (American tenor Michael Fabiano), a young man from the provinces, falls in love with Violetta (Russian soprano Venera Gimadieva), the stylish toast of Paris. But she’s not the marrying kind – at least not until now. However, their dreams are threatened by both a merciless society that condemns Violetta’s racy past and an equally merciless disease. There’s rarely a dry eye in the house when this poignant tale unfolds through Verdi’s robust, tuneful, full-hearted and full-throated score, laced through with melodies as familiar as the story.

François Ozon’s new film is set in the aftermath of WWI, where a young German who grieves the death of her fiancé in France, meets a mysterious Frenchman who visits the fiancé’s grave to lay flowers. Anna (Paula Beer) is a bereft young German woman whose fiancé, Frantz, was killed during trench warfare in WWI, and Adrien (Pierre Niney) is a French veteran of the war who shows up mysteriously in her town, placing flowers on Frantz’s grave. Adrien’s presence is met with resistance by the small community still reeling from Germany’s defeat, yet Anna gradually gets closer to the handsome and melancholy young man, as she learns of his deep friendship with Frantz, conjured up in evocative flashbacks. Ozon drew his inspiration from Ernst Lubitsch’s 1932 drama ‘Broken Lullaby’, with stunning visual references to painter Caspar David Friedrich. Ozon creates a beautiful stillness in ‘Frantz’ that makes us feel we are there in the midst of these lives, witnessing the purity of their sadness. (Subtitles) France/Germany 2016 François Ozon 113m.

In 1941, a ship sailing for Jamaica and New Orleans with a cargo of 28,000 cases of malt whisky runs aground off the Outer Hebrides. The film has barely started when total disaster strikes. “Gentlemen, my quota is finished,” the doleful barman tells his regulars. “There is no more whisky. The island is dry.” The postmaster Macroon (Gregor Fisher) is at the centre of all business on the island, and his mischievous daughters, Catriona (Ellie Kendrick) and Peggy (Naomi Battrick) are his co-conspirators. Captain Waggett (Eddie Izzard), a Captain Mainwaring-like figure, is the villain of the piece intent on thwarting all the attempts to liberate the amber nectar. As a bonus, this fresh take on the 1949 Ealing classic ‘Whisky Galore!’ (which screens in the Studio from 18 June), has a new skilfully added subplot. UK 2016 Gillies MacKinnon 98m.

Triple Ballet Bill ‘The Dream’, ‘Symphonic Variations’ and ‘Marguerite and Armand’ This gorgeous mixed programme demonstrates the great creative vision of Frederick Ashton, Founder Choreographer of The Royal Ballet, with music by Felix Mendelssohn, César Franck and Franz Liszt. ‘The Dream’ is Ashton’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s riotous comedy in which a forest sprite plays havoc, armed with a love potion. ‘Symphonic Variations’ was Ashton’s first work after World War II, and one of the Company’s first to be performed on the huge main stage of the Royal Opera House, in 1946. With six dancers performing a series of quartets, duets, sextets and solos to Franck’s brooding ‘Variations Symphoniques’, this seminal masterpiece celebrates the pure beauty of movement. ‘Marguerite and Armand’ is Ashton’s beautiful and emotional retelling of a well-known story, familiar to us through Verdi’s opera ‘La Traviata’. Conductor – Emmanuel Plasson. Running time (approx 180m) with 2 intervals. BOX OFFICE 01243 786 650

Richard Thorncroft (Julian Barratt) is an unemployed, overweight actor known for playing Detective Mindhorn in the 80s (whose left eye was replaced with a hi-tech scanner set into an old-fashioned eyepatch – allowing him to see through criminal lies).

Elizabeth Sloane is the most sought after and formidable lobbyist in D.C. But when taking on the most powerful opponent of her career, she finds winning may come at too high a price. “Lobbying is about foresight,” Sloane (the ever-brilliant Jessica Chastain) tells the camera during the opening scene – and everything that follows, demonstrates the accuracy of her assertion. This is Chastain’s movie, as the title implies. She is never less than riveting – and who says she has to be likeable? With the help of deft editing and an exciting electronic score, director John Madden (‘Shakespeare in Love’) turns this story of backroom machinations into a very entertaining thriller. Includes great performances from Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Mark Strong. France/USA 2016 John Madden 132m.

Rules Don’t Apply
An unconventional love story of an aspiring actress, her determined driver, and the eccentric billionaire who they work for. Small-town beauty queen and devout Baptist Marla Mabrey (Lily Collins), under contract to the infamous Howard Hughes (Warren Beatty), arrives in Los Angeles. At the airport, she meets her driver, Frank Forbes (Alden Ehrenreich), only two weeks on the job and also from a religiously conservative background. Their instant attraction not only puts their religious convictions to the test but also defies Hughes’ number one rule: no employee is allowed to have an intimate relationship with a contract actress. Hughes’ behaviour intersects with Marla and Frank in very separate and unexpected ways, and as they are drawn deeper into his bizarre world, their values are challenged and their lives are changed. Entertaining, engagingly acted, and something of an old-school treat. USA 2016 Warren Beatty 127m.

This harrowing, high-pitched drama is set entirely in a police truck during riots between Egypt’s pro-military supporters and the Muslim Brotherhood. In July 2013 President Morsi was overthrown by the army and many people took off to the streets either to celebrate or protest. We start in an empty police van which soon fills with an American/ Egyptian reporter, revolutionaries, Muslim Brotherhood supporters, and young men who had nothing to do with it. Aside from the keen sense of claustrophobia, the lensing captures in horrifying, quick-eyed observation the chaos outside. At the end, the message is clear: any sense of national unity has disintegrated, and the escalating violence is driving Egypt over the edge into bedlam. (Subtitles) Egypt 2016 Mohamed Diad 97m.

As typhoons buffet Tokyo, the film perceptively, in Ozu like style, examines a broken family and the father’s dogged attempts to glue it back together. This perceptive tale is of divorced father Ryota (Abe Hiroshi), a one-time novelist who may have gambled away his adulthood. Save for an addiction to betting, he’s inherited little of worth from his late father. And his still-spry mother (the wonderful Kirin Kiki,) has a habit of blithely tossing out the most valuable heirlooms. One thunderous night, Ryota lures his son and ex-wife to grandma’s flat, in the conspiratorial hope of patching things up.

Ossessione Rare screenings of Visconti’s early 1942 masterpiece based upon James Cain’s novel ‘The Postman Always Rings Twice’. A restless wife, Giovanna (superbly played by Clara Calamai), meets Gino (equally brilliantly played by Massimo Girotti), a rough and handsome vagabond. Their passionate affair leads to the murder of Giovanna’s boorish husband. Can a strong and sensual affair survive the guilt? ‘Ossessione’ is a dark and provocative drama of sexual tension. It heralded a new era of Italian cinema, establishing Luchino Visconti as a leading and controversial exponent of neo-realism. This is the first of two films relating to recent NT LIVE productions: ‘Obsession’, (starring Jude Law in May). Visconti’s film is all the more remarkable given that it was his debut film, the ex-horse race owner and aristocrat-turned-communist having begun to collaborate with the likes of Jean Cocteau and Jean Renoir.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Mike Nichols’s scorching film version of Edward Albee’s sensational play. Elegantly photographed in crisp black and white by the great Haskell Wexler, the play has been “opened up” for the screen by director Nichols without diluting its concentrated, claustrophobic power. Elizabeth Taylor has never been better or brasher as Martha, letting loose with all the fury of a drunken, frustrated academic’s wife on one crazy Walpurgisnacht bender. Richard Burton plays her husband, George, the ineffectual history professor married to the college president’s daughter. And George Segal and Sandy Dennis are young, callow Nick and Honey, who have no idea what sort of mind-warping psychological games they’re being drawn.

The classic 1949 Ealing comedy directed by Alexander Mackendrick starring Basil Radford and Joan Greenwood. Filmed at Barra in the Outer Hebrides, ‘Whisky Galore!’ was based upon a true incident, the foundering of a cargo ship off the Isle Of Eriskay with 50,000 cases of Scotch aboard. The Scottish islanders of Todday by-pass war time rationing and delight in smuggling cases of their favourite tipple from the wrecked ship. Basil Radford stars as the teetotal English official, who is totally unable to comprehend the significance of whisky to the islanders. Marvellously detailed and well played, it firmly established the richest Ealing vein with the common theme of a small group triumphing over a more powerful opponent. How will the 2017 remake of Whisky Galore! showing in the previous week in June stand up to this 1949 classic? (Digitally restored) UK 1949 Alexander Mackendrick 82m.

The Blue Lamp
Another 1950 Ealing classic starring a very young Dirk Bogarde as a cold gangster in a beautifully newly restored print. An immensely popular British crime film, Basil Dearden’s ‘The Blue Lamp’ was scripted by ex-policeman T.E.B Clark, the writer who arguably did most to define Ealing Studio’s post-war identity. The film marked the first appearance of the character of Jack Warner – later to be immortalized in ‘Dixon of Dock Green’. The story follows two London policemen whose daily routine is interrupted by a botched robbery and subsequent murder hunt. Starring Dirk Bogarde it was originally released in 1950. Sixtyseven years on, it’s hard to appreciate just how shocking one key scene in ‘The Blue Lamp’ was considered by British audiences at the time. No – no spoilers for those who haven’t seen it! (anyone?) Wonderfully nostalgic portrait of a Britain that no longer exists. UK 1950 Basil Dearden 82m. BOX OFFICE 01243 786 650

The Man Between
Carol Reed’s underrated 1953 cold war thriller, starring James Mason, Claire Bloom, and Hildegarde Knieff in another stunningly restored print. A later collaboration between James Mason and Carol Reed, ‘The Man Between’ is often considered a companion piece to ‘The Third Man’ thanks to its atmospheric portrayal of a city struggling to survive in a grim post-war reality of poverty and mistrust. The action is here transposed to a divided Berlin, and to the beginning of the Cold War. Unlike the devilish Harry Lime, Mason’s world-weary dealer Ivo Kerr is ultimately still a decent man, compelled by his love for a naïve schoolteacher to make one last misguided trip through the Brandenberg Gate, with potentially tragic consequences. The Claire Bloom/Mason performances in the last 10-15 minutes is sublime and makes this comparable with ‘The Third Man’. UK 1953 Carol Reed 100m.

La Belle et la Bête
As Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ hits screens across the UK, revisit the film that first conjured the story’s magical spell. No, not any of the Disney versions, but Jean Cocteau’s classic fantasy re-casting the well-known fairy tale for adults. When Beauty’s father picks a rose at a deserted castle, a beast in Prince’s clothing (Jean Marius) appears and tells him he must die. He sends the man home to say good-bye to his family, whereupon Beauty (Josette Day) offers to take her father’s place. She goes off to the castle but instead of killing her, the beast falls in love with her. Stunning cinematography replicates the lighting of the Dutch masters and the whole film is the epitome of cinematic art wherein the magic is created ‘in camera’.

I, Claude Monet
From award-winning director Phil Grabsky comes this fresh new look at arguably the world’s favourite artist – through his own words. Using letters and other private writings ‘I, Claude Monet’ reveals new insight into the man who not only painted the picture that gave birth to impressionism but who was perhaps the most influential and successful painter of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Despite this, and perhaps because of it, Monet’s life is a gripping tale about a man who, behind his sun-dazzled canvases, suffered from feelings of depression, loneliness, even suicide. Then, as his art developed and his love of gardening led to the glories of his garden at Giverney, his humour, insight and love of life is revealed. Shot on location in Paris, London, Normandy and Venice. UK 2017 Phil Grabsky 90m.

The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism Based on the hugely popular exhibition ‘The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement’ from the Florence Griswold Museum in Connecticut, widely considered a home of American impressionism. American impressionism took its lead from French artists like Renoir and Monet but followed its own path that over a thirtyyear period reveals as much about America as a nation as it does about a much-loved artistic movement. The story of American impressionism is closely tied to a love of gardens and a desire to preserve nature in a rapidly urbanizing nation.

Based on the 1951 Daphne Du Maurier novel, this is a dark romance about a young Englishman who plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms. Young orphan Phillip (Sam Claflin) has his tranquil existence interrupted when he receives a note from his older cousin, who writes to say that he is being poisoned. Cousin Ambrose soon turns up dead of an apparent brain tumour, but Phillip is suspicious of Ambrose’s strange wife Rachel (Rachel Weisz). When she appears at Philip’s home, he determines to solve the mystery, but finds himself captivated by the presence of the enigmatic widow. As he loses his resolve the more his infatuation grows, he may even be endangering his own life in the process. Co-stars include Iain Glen, Holliday Grainger and Simon Russell Beale. From director Roger Michell, who has experience in both costume drama (‘Persuasion’, ‘Hyde Park on Hudson’) and thriller (‘Enduring Love’) as well as rom-com classics like ‘Notting Hill’, this is the first feature film adaptation of the novel since 1952. That version starred Olivia de Havilland and Richard Burton. UK 2017 Roger Michell.

A ticking-clock thriller following Winston Churchill (played brilliantly by Brian Cox) in the hours before D-Day. 1944: as tensions mount in the 48-hours preceding D-Day, the now-beleaguered Prime Minister Winston Churchill must prepare a final attempt to crush Hitler’s encroaching army. With the entire War effort ultimately hinging on this decision, the stakes have never been higher. As the Wartime leader clashes with his generals, tension builds with the Americans, and Churchill must wrestle his inner-demons in order to navigate the Allies to victory. Miranda Richardson offers support as Churchill’s headstrong wife Clemmie, while Mad Men’s John Slattery makes for a spiky General Eisenhower. James Purefoy is also amongst the cast, portraying King George VI. UK 2017 Jonathan Teplitzky 98m.

Film Courses & Talks at New Park

Watching the Detectives Enjoy a new course taking a fresh look at Crime Thrillers, Film Noir, Heist movies, Courtroom dramas, Mob films and even Crime comedy as seen in some of our best loved films and some that may be new to you – to thrill and excite you! For instance, the Gangster genre showed how criminal networks operate inside their own fiercely moral code, while Film Noir found that criminality resides in cynicism, obsession and desperation. In the first session, crime writer Simon Brett talks about the relationship between crime and the movies. His own standalone thriller, ‘A Shock to the System’, was made into a feature film starring Michael Caine, and he went through the common novelist’s experience of having absolutely nothing to do with the making of the movie. Simon’s session will be illustrated with clips from that film and others which tread the tricky path between crime and comedy. So if you have a taste for capers and heists, you’re in for a treat. In the next two sessions, led by Rosemary Coxon, the cinema’s Education Officer, we will look at a range of movies from the early twentieth century onwards which perfectly illustrate how crime and transgression are the stuff of drama and real life. The big screen loves these guys and you will too! See you at the cinema! Simon Brett’s hundredth book will be published in September 2017. Many of them have been crime novels including the Charles Paris, Mrs Pargeter, Fethering, Blotto & Twinks series as well as the above mentioned A Shock to the System. For radio and television he wrote After Henry and No Commitments. A former President of the Detection Club, in 2014 he was awarded the Crime Writers’ Association’s highest award, the Diamond Dagger. And in the 2016 New Year’s Honours he was appointed an OBE ‘for services to literature’.
