Victoria and Abdul (PG)

Final Portrait (15)

The extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria's reign.

A warm and witty drama about art, life and love.

When Abdul Karim, a young clerk, travels from India to participate in the Queen's Golden Jubilee, he is surprised to find favour with the Queen herself (played, majestically, by Judi Dench). As the Queen questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance.

Paris, 1964. Alberto Giacometti, the famous artist, bumps into his friend, the American critic James Lord, and asks him to sit for a portrait, saying it'll only take a couple of days. Lord is flattered by the request, but as the days go by and turn into weeks, seemingly with no end in sight, he realises his entire life has been hijacked by this erratic genius.

Detroit (15)

Dunkirk (12A)

From Academy Award winning director Kathryn Bigelow, the gripping story of one of the darkest moments during the civil unrest that rocked the USA in the summer of ‘67.

Acclaimed director Christopher Nolan (Interstellar, The Dark Knight, Memento) directs this stunningly cinematic World War II drama about the evacuation of Allied troops from the French city of Dunkirk.

At Detroit’s Algiers Motel on a sweltering July night, a random shot from a starting pistol triggers an incident that leaves three black men dead and a black security guard trying desperately to mediate between his white superiors and an enraged African-American community.

Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea, hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in. Dunkirk features a prestigious cast, including Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh and Cillian Murphy.

An unforgettable meditation on love, grief and the passing of time from acclaimed director David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints).

Marshalltown, Nova Scotia, 1937. Maud is stuck living with her unsympathetic aunt. Desperate to break away, she responds to a local fish seller’s ad for a housekeeper. Everett Lewis is disagreeable and initially cruel to Maudie, but the two quickly come to realise that they need and understand each other.

A white-sheeted ghost (Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home seeking to console his bereft wife (Rooney Mara), only to find that he must watch passively as the life he knew and the woman he loves slowly slip away.

As a young girl, Una ran away with an older man, Ray, a crime for which he was arrested and imprisoned. Fifteen years later, when she comes across a photo of him in a magazine, Una tracks him down to his workplace, an action which threatens to destroy her precarious stability as well as Ray’s new life.

Also starring Liev Schreiber and Peter Sarsgaard, Pawn Sacrifice chronicles Fischer’s terrifying struggles with genius and madness, and the rise and fall of a kid from Brooklyn who captured the imagination of the world.

Tom of Finland

(18)

Thursday 5 October, 5.45pm

A captivating biopic of artist Touko Laaksonen, aka Tom of Finland, one of the most influential gay artists of the 20th century. After the trauma of serving in WWII, Tuoko finds no peace at home, as he has to go to increasingly great lengths to hide his homosexuality. As the secret affairs and police crackdowns wear on him, he commits more deeply to his art, drawing inspiration from the uniforms that oppress him. In Finnish, English and German with English subtitles.
