Phoenix is on the road to the Oscars and the contenders are certainly a worthy bunch this year. We have a sneaky feeling it won’t be a clean sweep for one or two movies this time round – with so many strong movies to choose from, it’s going to be a tight race. We’ve already shown Philomena and Captain Phillips and have brought back fellow Best Picture nominee Gravity this month, which is sure to be just as impressive the second time round. Matthew McConaughey is tipped to win Best Actor for Dallas Buyers Club; potentially beating notable performances by Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street and Chiwetel Ejiofor for 12 Years a Slave. We’re also showing con-man caper American Hustle, Bruce Dern in Nebraska and – proving the Academy doesn’t always get it right – Inside Llewyn Davis. The Coen’s current effort was only nominated for sound and cinematography whilst Ralph Fiennes stirring new drama The Invisible Woman only picked up one nod for Best Costume. Of course, if all this talk of awards season is getting too much, we’ve got plenty of other things for you to look forward to this month, including comedy festival shows and half term movies for the kids.

slavery. Trapped on a plantation run by the monstrous Edwin Epps (an incendiary Michael Fassbender), Northup confronts the heartbreaking tyranny and injustice with his intelligence and dignity. British lead Ejiofor is outstanding, with the excellent supporting cast including Paul Giamatti, Paul Dano and Benedict Cumberbatch.

' ' – It's the nobility of this remarkable film that pierces the soul’ – The Daily Telegraph

Adapted from Nothup’s own 1853 autobiography, Steve McQueen’s (Hunger, Shame) new film is a brave, unforgettable and excoriating vision of slavery.

the drug-addled matriarch of the Weston family. As her estranged family gather at her home after a family crisis, what should have been a sombre gathering soon explodes into a feast of backbiting arguments as Violet and her grown-up daughters vent years of pent-up anger. Streep is on award-worthy form (when isn’t she?) in this grand drama, with superb support from a hugely talented cast including Benedict Cumberbatch, Julia Roberts and Ewan McGregor.

Will this finally be Leo’s year to win an Oscar? With his incredible performance in Martin Scorsese’s new film – based on the tell-all autobiography of former stockbroker Jordan Belfort – we think he’s a strong contender. We follow Belfort’s (DiCaprio) meteoric rise to the heights of Wall Street, and the inevitable fall as his world disintegrates in a storm of corruption, crime and some very angry FBI agents.

The Coens return with another beguiling and brilliant masterpiece, this time set in the 1960s as singer Llewyn Davis navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene. Having enjoyed some success with writing partner Mike, Llewyn finds himself alone after Mike commits suicide, and his solo record is not

Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer


Mon 3 – Tue 4 Feb Dir: Maxim Pozdorovkin Russia / UK 2013, 1hr 28mins, subtitled Following their recent release from prison, we thought it would be the ideal time to screen this fierce documentary from last year. After storming a Moscow Cathedral to perform their obscenity-filled song ‘Punk Prayer’ in protest at the Church’s support for Vladimir Putin, the members of feminist punk group Pussy Riot were imprisoned in Siberia. This film, made during their incarceration, looks at the origins of the group, their reasons for protesting and the global calls for clemency that aided their release.

selling. Crashing on the couches of eccentric friends, a series of bizarre encounters leaves him travelling across the country to audition in Chicago with only a bad-tempered jazz musician (John Goodman) and ginger tom-cat for company.

Superbly written and performed, very, very funny and with one of the best soundtracks we’ve ever heard.

Dir: Aharon Keshales Cast: Tzahi Grad Israel 2013, 1hr 50mins, subtitled

Dir: François Ozon Cast: Marine Vacth France 2013, 1hr 32 mins, subtitled

Dubbed the best film of the year by none-other than Quentin Tarantino, this new movie from Israel might be the world’s first horror-thriller-torture-comedy. After a series of violent murders in their small village, a disgraced cop and a grieving father team up and capture the main suspect – a local religious studies teacher. But now they have to make him confess. Expect pitch-black humour, violence and edge-of-the seat tension. “ - A thriller which bites deep” - EMPIRE.

Films marked


This new film from François Ozon (In the House) is a complex and explicit work, exploring the sexual awakening of young Parisian girl Isabelle, played by newcomer Marine Vacth. Told across 4 seasons, we first meet Isabelle at the height of summer as she loses her virginity to a holiday fling. Unsatisfied, she further experiments by becoming an escort to wealthy gentlemen – meeting them in the city’s expensive hotels. A bold and thrilling look at sexuality, desire and innocence lost.

Fri 14 – Thu 27 Feb Fri 28 Feb – Thu 13 Mar Dir: David O. Russell Cast: Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper USA 2013, 2hr 17mins

Dir: George Clooney Cast: George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray USA / Germany 2014, 1hr 58mins

Christian Bale (The Fighter) and Amy Adams (The Master) star as a pair of con artists forced by FBI agent Richie (Bradley Cooper) to use their infamous abilities to bring down the corrupt mayor of New Jersey (Jeremy Renner). Jennifer Lawrence supports with an electric performance as Bale’s

unpredictable wife who threatens to blow the whole caper. From the writer-director of last year’s multi award-winner Silver Linings Playbook, David O. Russell’s dynamite script explodes off the screen with infectious energy; his exceptional cast sparking off each other backed by a cracking soundtrack.

Project Wild Thing

The Invisible Woman 12A Nebraska



This new film from the producers of last year’s Oscar winner Argo is based on the unlikely true story of an Allied platoon during the closing months of World War II. Commanded by President Roosevelt to rescue art pieces stolen by the Nazis, Lieutenant

Stout assembles a rag-tag group of ageing museum curators, sculptors and art historians and heads to the front line. George Clooney directs and leads alongside an all-star cast including Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, and John

Goodman. A sharp, funny, boy’s own adventure story of a band of brothers prepared to die in defence of mankind’s greatest achievements.

The screening on Wed 19 Feb will be followed by a panel discussion with representatives from Leicester City Council and Parks Department. Come along and get involved! David Bond is a filmmaker and a father; things have changed since he was a kid. His children are hooked on screens and don't want to go outdoors. They want iPads, TV and plastic toys. The marketing departments of Apple and Mattel control his children better than he can. Determined to get them up and outside, David appoints himself as the ‘Marketing Director for Nature’.

Ralph Fiennes directs and stars in this lavish biopic about Charles Dickens’ secret mistress Nelly, a young actress. Beginning with Nelly’s later life as a school teacher, we flash back to their first meeting in London where Charles is immediately infatuated with her beauty. In return Nelly finds herself seduced by his talent and charisma, but doesn’t want to live the rest of her life as the ‘other woman’. Superb support comes from Kristin Scott Thomas, Tom Hollander and a heartbreaking performance from Joanna Scanlan as Charles’ scorned wife Catherine.

Back by popular demand, this enchanting melancholy comedy comes from Alexander Payne, the director of Sideways. Convinced he’s won a million dollars in a sweepstake, Woody (Dern) persuades his sceptical son David to drive him to the company’s office in Nebraska, staying with various odd-ball (and all of a sudden, money-grabbing) members of their extended family. Beautifully shot in black and white, Nebraska garnered Bruce Dern the Best Actor award at Cannes; perhaps he’ll pick up the Oscar too?

Screening in partnership with the DMU Film Society, Paul Thomas Anderson’s incendiary tale of corruption and greed in the Californian oilfields is a parable on faith, sin, and the battle waged between commerce and the church for man’s soul. Daniel Day-Lewis is oil magnate Daniel Plainview whose latest drilling operation is stalled by fanatical young preacher Eli Sunday. Perhaps the best American film of the past two decades, There Will Be Blood is a masterpiece.

Films marked with a rosette are our award winner recommendations

Back by popular demand, the multi award-winning Gravity sees the long overdue return of Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men). George Clooney (Solaris) and Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side) star as two astronauts carrying out routine maintenance on their shuttle when disaster strikes leaving them adrift in outer space. It’s breath-taking, mind-bending cinema, revelling in the spectacle of the big screen. Cuarón never lets up the suspense with heart-thumping action and inventive plot jumps. Gravity is a science fiction tour de force.

Matthew McConaughey gives the performance of his career as Ron Woodroof, a rodeo hustler diagnosed HIV positive who starts smuggling medicine across the border from Mexico. At first only looking out for himself, the homophobic Woodroof gradually has his eyes opened to the ongoing AIDS crisis in America thanks to his friendship / business partnership with transsexual Rayon (a sublime performance from Leto). Hardhitting, heartbreaking and at times surprisingly funny, it’s a film that pulls no punches and deserves every award it’s garnering.

From the earliest maps to our increasing reliance on sat navs and smartphone GPS, how we perceive the world around us is heavily influenced by the technology and media we use to navigate and understand it. In parallel artists are using new technologies and the huge array of data we produce about our surroundings to imagine environments that normally lie beyond our realm of experience.

Elaine Ohanrahan will talk about the life and work of Desmond Paul Henry, one of the most important early pioneers in the field of art and technology. Henry was a key figure in the development of computer art and its evolution from the mechanical to the digital age.

MSHR will talk about their practice, which blends digital media, sculptural installation, electronic instrument design, sonic recording and performance.

During the 1960s he converted analogue computers from WW2 aircraft into a series of mechanical drawing machines that pre-empted the features of modern graphics software by two decades.

From Portland, Oregon, USA, MSHR have performed at venues across the world, including Transmediale festival in Berlin and Tate Modern, London.
