THE POST FRI 19 JAN – THURS 1 FEB

DIR: STEVEN SPIELBERG • 2017 • USA • 1 HR 56 MINS

Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in a thrilling drama that is already garnering significant awards buzz. Katharine Graham (Streep) is the first female publisher of a major American newspaper - The Washington Post. With help from her editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), Graham races to catch up with The New York Times to publish the leaked Pentagon Papers, detailing the US government’s misleading portrayal of the Vietnam War and exposing a massive cover-up that spanned three decades and four US Presidents. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers - and their very freedom - to help bring long-buried truths to light.

The Post may be set in 1971 but its theme about press freedom is all about today. Spielberg rushed to get the film completed and released within a year: “I just felt that there was an urgency to reflect 1971 and 2017 because they were very terrifyingly similar.” The Post was named the best film of 2017 by the National Board of Review, a New York-based 100 year-old group of academics, filmmakers and professionals. Streep was named best actress and Hanks was voted best actor, setting the film up as an early front-runner for the Oscars. ACCESS SCREENING The 6.30pm screening on Tues 30 Jan will include audio description and on-screen captioning.

MOLLY’S GAME MON 1 – THURS 18 JAN

DIR: AARON SORKIN • 2017 • USA 2 HRS 20 MINS

Jessica Chastain stars in screenwriter Aaron Sorkin's (The Social Network) directorial debut. Molly’s Game is based on the true story of Molly Bloom (Chastain), an Olympic-class skier who ran the world's most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents wielding automatic weapons. Her players included Hollywood royalty, business titans and the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey (Idris Elba), who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led us to believe.

ACCESS SCREENING The 6.00pm screening on Tues 16 Jan will include audio description and on-screen captioning.

SANCTUARY FRI 29 DEC – THURS 4 JAN

DIR: LEN COLLIN • 2016 • IRELAND 1 HR 27 MINS

Sanctuary is one of the most ambitious, innovative and deeply moving Irish films of recent times. Larry (Kieran Coppinger) and Sophie (Charlene Kelly) are in love. They bribe the feckless Tom (Robert Doherty) to book them into a hotel for an afternoon tryst and look forward to getting to know each other, like countless couples before them. But Larry and Sophie aren’t any couple; they both have intellectual disabilities and Tom is their care worker. By attempting to be intimate, they aren’t just breaking the rules – they’re breaking the law.

The 6.20pm screening on Wed 3 Jan will be followed by a Q&A with director Len Collin and members of the cast.

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI FRI 12 – THURS 25 JAN

DIR: MARTIN MCDONAGH • 2017 • UK/USA • 1 HR 55 MINS

Martin McDonagh’s (In Bruges) third feature is a characteristically pitch-black comedic drama featuring a blistering central performance from Frances McDormand. It’s been seven months since her daughter was murdered and foul-mouthed, tough-as-nails Mildred Hayes (McDormand) is fed up. Fuelled by grief and outraged that the investigation has gone quiet, she provokes the local police department with a series of messages plastered on three disused billboards outside her home town of Ebbing, Missouri. So begins a rapidly escalating and very public feud between Mildred and venerated community leader and family man, Chief Willoughby (Woody Harrelson). The situation is exacerbated when blundering side-kick, Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell) gets involved. Just as unhinged as Mildred, but with a significantly lower

IQ, Dixon’s penchant for violence is stoked by his leaden, borderline psychotic mother to whom he is unhealthily attached. McDonagh’s latest exploration of the American psyche is by turns riotously funny and deeply sobering, cutting to the quick of social division and tearing to shreds – like the tattered billboards that Mildred papers over – the all-American dreaminess of the Capra-esque small town. A universally splendid cast is rounded out by Abbie Cornish, Peter Dinklage, John Hawkes, Clarke Peters and Caleb Landry Jones. “A corrosively humorous drama of festering injustice, Shakespearean rage, grave reckoning and imperfect redemption, which unfolds with the epic dimensions of a classic Western showdown.” – DAVID ROONEY, HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

DOWNSIZING FRI 26 JAN – THURS 1 FEB

DIR: ALEXANDER PAYNE • 2017 • USA/ NORWAY • 2 HRS 15 MINS

Alexander Payne (Sideways, Nebraska) puts climate change, mobility and immigration under the microscope in this utterly bewitching satire starring Matt Damon. When scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall as a solution to over-population, Paul (Damon) and his wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in order to get small and move to a new downsized community — a choice that triggers life-changing adventures. Damon, superb as the bewildered everyman, is supported by an appropriately florid Christoph Waltz and a captivating Hong Chau, playing an illegal immigrant who arrives in a parcel.

DARKEST HOUR FRI 26 JAN – THURS 1 FEB

DIR: JOE WRIGHT • 2017 • UK 2 HRS 5 MINS

Newly-appointed Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) must ponder a history-making choice in director Joe Wright’s (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice) new biographical drama, Darkest Hour. Within days of his appointment, the Nazi forces had surrounded the British and French armies and were on the brink of annihilating them. Facing almost certain defeat, Churchill was forced to rally the nation and convince his colleagues to continue the desperate fight for their freedom, against any odds.

THE DISASTER ARTIST FRI 29 DEC – THURS 4 JAN

DIR: JAMES FRANCO • 2017 • USA 1 HR 44 MINS

James Franco directs and stars in this uproarious ode to Tommy Wiseau, director of 2003's The Room. Famously considered one of the worst films ever, The Room has nevertheless become a cult favourite since its release, adored by repeat-viewing fans for its terrible acting and nnonsensical plot. James Franco charts the tortured story behind the scenes in this often hysterically funny comedy. THE ROOM SAT 30 DEC, 9.30PM Following two sold out screenings we present a third – and final! – screening of The Room so you can see what all the fuss is about.

MUGEN NO JÛNIN

BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL FRI 29 DEC – THURS 4 JAN

DIR: TAKASHI MIIKE • 2017 • JAPAN/UK 2 HRS 21 MINS • SUBTITLED

Cult favourite Takashi Miike (13 Assassins) slices and slashes his way through this stunning swordplay adventure. Based on the eponymous manga by Hiroaki Samura, Blade of the Immortal follows Manji (Takuya Kimura), a warrior who cannot be killed. After young Rin (Hana Sugisaki) witnesses the slaughter of her parents, she asks Manji to avenge their deaths. One by one, Manji tracks them down, leading the audience through one stylised showdown after another; all brilliantly choreographed, outlandishly violent and sometimes brutally comic to boot.

ACCESS SCREENING The 8.20pm screening on Tues 2 Jan will include audio description and hard-of-hearing subtitles.

DIR: KORNÉL MUNDRUCZÓ • 2017 HUNGARY/GERMANY/FRANCE 2 HRS 9 MINS • SUBTITLED

From the visionary director of the critically acclaimed White God comes a spectacular supernatural thriller. Aryan (Zsombor Jéger) is a Syrian refugee hoping to cross the border from Serbia to Hungary alongside members of his family. When they each get caught, and Aryan shot, he mysteriously gains the ability to levitate. Eyeing the potential in his newly gifted patient, his attending doctor (Merab Ninidze) smuggles them out into the world in search of freedom and profit. With beautifully fluid and kinetic camerawork, Kornél Mundruczó brings spectacle that rivals any Hollywood production to tell a timely European story.

In the mid-19th century, French adventurer Orélie-Antoine de Tounens journeyed to the far reaches of southern Chile, where he was improbably crowned king of Patagonia and is said to have united the native Mapuche. But how much of this fanciful tale was true? A visionary psychedelic film from artist Niles Atallah, Rey probes Chilean history, memory and colonialism through its stylised blend of deliberately decayed footage, stop-motion, masks, puppets and other kaleidoscopic imagery.
