The Death of Stalin (15)

The Snowman (15)

The internal political landscape of 1950’s Soviet Russia takes on darkly comic form in the brilliant new film by award-winning writer/director Armando Iannucci (The Thick of It, Veep).

Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) directs this superb adaptation of Jo Nesbø’s crime thriller. Detective Harry Hole investigates the disappearance of a woman whose pink scarf is found wrapped around an ominous-looking snowman. With the help of a brilliant young recruit, Hole must connect decades-old cold cases to the brutal new one if he hopes to outwit this unthinkable evil before the next snowfall.

In the days following Stalin’s demise, his core team of ministers tussle for control; some want positive change in the Soviet Union, others have more sinister motives. Their one common trait? They’re all just desperately trying to stay alive…

SCREENPRIDE

The Ballad of Shirley Collins (12A)

In Between (15) Sunday 19 & Thursday 23 November

Widely regarded as the 20th century’s most important singer of English traditional song, Shirley Collins stood at the epicentre of the folk music scene during the 1960s and ‘70’s. However, in 1980 she lost her voice in mysterious circumstances, and was forced to retire from musical life. This fascinating documentary sets out to explore the story behind the icon, and chronicles Shirley’s battle, at the grand old age of 80, to rediscover her voice.

A compelling, spiky comedy drama about friendship, love and the search for independence by three young Palestinian women living in Tel Aviv. Chic criminal lawyer Laila and lesbian disc jockey Salma spend their time hanging out in the city’s underground bars, leading a bohemian, sexuallyactive lifestyle that stands in sharp contrast to the decidedly more religious and conservative outlook of their flatmate Nour….

When children begin disappearing in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of kids are faced with their biggest fears when they have to confront an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence goes back for hundreds of years.

Jennifer Lawrence plays one half of an apparently happy couple – Javier Bardem being the slightly sinister other – whose relationship is put to the test when some unexpected visitors arrive at their remote and beautiful house, disrupting their tranquil existence.

Daphne (15)

A stunning, fully hand-painted animated feature exploring the life and controversial death of Vincent van Gogh.

A striking debut feature from Scottish director Peter Mackie Burns, driven by a brilliant performance from Emily Beecham in the lead role.

This extraordinary and elegant labour of love tells its intriguing story using dramatic reconstructions of the events leading up to van Gogh’s death, along with ‘interviews’ with the characters closest to him, all painstakingly portrayed in the style of his own paintings.

Daphne, a young woman juggling a hectic nightlife with a busy restaurant job, finds her life thrown off balance after she witnesses a violent incident. The façade that she has built to protect herself gradually starts to crack, and she takes a fresh look at her fractured life.

She and her husband Bill (Timothy Spall) plan to celebrate this news with a few close friends, but, as the guests arrive at their London home, the evening takes an unexpected turn.

Dina, an outspoken and eccentric 49-year-old in suburban Philadelphia, invites her fiancé Scott, a Walmart door greeter, to move in with her.

WEDNESDAY 29 NOVEMBER, 7pm Mareel ď…… FREE

Here at Mareel there is always a buzz of activity behind the scenes as our music, audio and film students enjoy the hands-on experience of working in a real venue. Join Shetland College UHI Music Students as they perform a variety of musical styles at their first live event of the academic year.

> Creativity Club Stage 1 is changing! Shetland Arts introduces Creativity Club, a series of arts workshops for 7 - 11 year olds that will encourage creativity and learning across many different artforms. The first five-week block will explore a range of drama skills, while developing confidence, encouraging creativity and having lots of fun! The sessions will culminate in a brand new performance for friends and family in the Mareel Auditorium, devised by the children themselves. Sessions run for 2 hours (with a short break in the middle) and are often very active, so participants should wear clothes that they can move comfortably in. Saturday afternoons, 1pm - 3pm in Mareel from November 11th to December 9th. And keep an eye out for information on the next block of Creativity Club - film animation!
