Der Rosenkavalier Fri 13 Jun 6.30pm

The married, middle-aged Marschallin chooses her young lover Octavian as Rose Cavalier, bearer of the ceremonial silver rose to Sophie, the teenage fiancée of Baron Ochs, the Marschallin’s crude country cousin. But Octavian and Sophie fall in love at first sight, setting off a chain of boisterous comic intrigues that gradually yield to a bittersweet meditation on the evanescence of love and time. Composed by Richard Strauss, directed by Richard Jones and conducted by Robin Ticciati, this opens Glyndebourne’s 80th-anniversary season. £15 (£13) | Recorded transmission from Glyndebourne | Sung in German with English supertitles

Don Giovanni Sat 12 Jul 6.30pm

In Mozart’s Don Giovanni, we meet the Don on a most unusual day: his last day on earth.

ENO Screen: Benvenuto Cellini Tue 17 Jun 7pm

Unseen in London for many years, and never previously at ENO, Berlioz’s Benvenuto Cellini is forged anew at the London Coliseum by director Terry Gilliam and ENO Music Director Edward Gardner. With stunning visual and musical set pieces such as the Mardi Gras carnival, Cellini’s love for Teresa and his triumphant fulfilment of a commission to cast a bronze statue of Perseus provide the framework for some of Berlioz’s most vibrant, swashbuckling and tender music, against a plot of thwarted love, elopment, intrigue, disguise, mistaken identity, secular merry-making and sacred ceremony. £15 (£13) | Live transmission from London Coliseum | Sung and surtitled in English

ROH Cinema: Manon Lescaut Tue 24 Jun 6.45pm

Jonathan Kent directs this early Puccini masterpiece under the baton of Music Director Antonio Pappano. A consummate Puccini soprano, Kristine Opolais causes a sensation as Manon Lescaut, the bold but impressionable heroine. She is matched in star power by Jonas Kaufmann as her lover, Des Grieux, and Christopher Maltman as her cynical brother Lescaut. This is a much anticipated new production, and Kent’s vision of a young girl who faces temptation in the big city will surely resonate with today’s audience. £15 (£13) | Live transmission from the Royal Opera House, London | Sung in Italian with English supertitles

15 | 111mins | Biyi Bandele

Based on the award-winning best seller by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, this lush period drama is the feature film debut from London-based Nigerian playwright, novelist and screenwriter Biyi Bandele. Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years A Slave), Thandie Newton, Joseph Mawle, Anika Noni Rose and John Boyega, this epic love-story weaves together the lives of four people swept up in the turbulence of the Nigerian civil war in 1960s Africa.

The Lunchbox (Dabba)

Wed 4 Jun 8pm

PG | 105mins | Hindi | Ritesh Batra A mistaken delivery by the Dabbawalas, the white-jacketed couriers who operate Mumbai’s famously efficient lunchbox delivery system connects Ila, an unhappy young housewife, to Saajan, a lonely widower in the dusk of his life as they build a fantasy world together through notes in the lunchbox. The result is a delicious feel-good romance that is both touching and credible, an urban fable of hope in the face of disappointment.

Locke

Sun 8 Jun 8pm

15 | 85mins | Steven Knight In an audacious feat of real-time minimalist storytelling, a mesmerising Tom Hardy plays a construction supervisor whose life unravels as he faces the loss of his home, marriage and job to honour a commitment and exorcise his father’s sins, all during an emotionally-fraught car journey. This bracingly original British thriller packs such a mighty emotional charge that it manages to make the logistical challenges of pouring concrete utterly riveting.

The Sea

Tue 10 Jun 11am | 2pm | 8pm

12A | 86mins | Stephen Brown Based on John Banville’s 2005 Man Booker Prize-winning novel, the movie tells the tale of a man who, following the death of his wife, returns to the sea where he spent his childhood summers in search of peace. Starring Ciaran Hinds, Charlotte Rampling, Natascha McElhone, Rufus Sewell and Sinead Cusack, this is a haunting, uplifting meditation on the human condition – in turns elegiac, poetic, and nostalgic.

The Love Punch

Wed 11 Jun 8pm

12A | 94mins | Joel Hopkins Sassy Emma Thompson and always-charming Pierce Brosnan star in this romantic comedy caper, playing a long-divorced couple, Kate and Richard, who have just packed their daughter off to university. When they hit some financial trouble, losing their pension to a corrupt businessman, they find themselves reuniting to carry out a jewel heist in Continental Europe. Timothy Spall and Celia Imrie co-star as their partners in crime.

Exhibition

Thu 19 Jun 8pm

15 | 105mins | Joanna Hogg D (Viv Albertine) and H (Liam Gillick), a childless couple in their fifties, wrestle with mixed emotions as they prepare to sell their beloved London home, a modernist masterpiece of glass walls and sliding screens. Hogg’s closely observed portrait of two artists in the third act of a lengthy relationship is a beautifully shot, intimate mood piece that explores the subtleties and low-level power struggles of long-term love in forensic detail.

Blue Ruin

Sun 22 Jun 5pm

15 | 90mins | Jeremy Saulnier Macon Blair turns in an awesome performance as Dwight, a mysterious outsider whose quiet life is turned upside down when he returns to his childhood home to carry out an act of vengeance. Proving himself an amateur assassin, he winds up in a brutal fight to protect his estranged family. This utterly compelling American revenge tale was the winner of the FIPRESCI International Critics Prize at Cannes 2013.

Yves Saint Laurent

Wed 25 Jun 11am | 2pm | 8pm

15 | 106mins | French | Jalil Lespert A sumptuous drama exploring the turbulent personal and professional lives of the great French couturier.

Ilo Ilo

Sun 29 Jun 5pm

12A | 99mins | Mandarin & Tagalog | Anthony Chen Brimming with love, humour and heartbreak, Ilo Ilo centres on the inseparable bond between a 10-year-old Singaporean boy and his Filipina nanny while the boy’s parents struggle to weather the 1997 Asian financial crisis. Director Chen is remarkably astute in his depiction of the class and racial tensions within such a household, and his immensely likable gem of a first feature won the Camera d’Or at Cannes.

The Double

Sun 29 Jun 8pm

15 | 93mins | Richard Ayoade Starring Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska and based on Dostoevsky’s tale of a meek office drone unhinged by the arrival of a successful, articulate man who looks exactly like him, Ayoade’s Submarine follow-up is equally indebted to the collected works of Franz Kafka, Terry Gilliam and Roman Polanski. Arch, weird and very funny, it’s packed with tiny, perfect comic vignettes and terrific cameos by virtually everyone he’s ever worked with.

A Thousand Times Good Night (Tusen ganger god natt) Tue 1 Jul 11am | 2pm | 8pm TBC | 117mins | English & Norwegian | Erik Poppe In this gripping drama set in Ireland, Kenya and Afghanistan, Juliette Binoche plays a photojournalist torn between passionate involvement with her work and commitment to her worried husband Marcus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and their two daughters. Sidestepping both melodrama and familyvalues messaging, director Poppe imbues the film with enormous emotional resonance, brilliantly grounded by his leading lady. Winner of the Special Grand Prix at the 2013 Montreal World Film Festival.

Run & Jump

Wed 2 Jul 8pm

15 | 106mins | Steph Green An American doctor (Will Forte) documents the struggles of a spirited Irish housewife (a radiant Maxine Peake), as she and her family cope with the aftermath of her husband’s life-altering stroke. Run & Jump is an unexpected, unconventional romance, an intimate family portrait and an emotional journey of recovery that ultimately uplifts through its heartfelt message of human connection and the power of acceptance.

Frank

Thu 3 Jul 8pm

15 | 95mins | Lenny Abrahamson Offbeat comedy about a young wannabe musician, Jon (Domhnall Gleeson), who finds himself out of his depth when he joins an avant-garde pop band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank (Michael Fassbender), a musical genius who hides himself inside a large fake head, and his terrifying bandmate Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal). This fictional story is loosely inspired by Frank Sidebottom, the persona of cult musician and comedy legend Chris Sievey.

Before The Winter Chill (Avant l’hiver)

Sun 6 Jul 5pm | 8pm

15 | 103mins | French | Philippe Claudel

They are the perfect French haute bourgeois couple. Paul (Daniel Auteuil) is a respected surgeon; Lucie (Kristin Scott Thomas) cooks and gardens exquisitely. Together, they bring joy and a sense of stability to their extended family and community of friends. But then Paul’s passion for a stranger (Leïla Bekhti) brings chaos into their well-manicured existence. Claudel offers an unforgettable glimpse at the skeleton beneath the elegant skin of suburban gentility.

Recipient of the Best Screenplay award at Cannes 2013.

Fading Gigolo

Thu 10 Jul 8pm

15 | 90mins | John Turturro Writer, director and star John Turturro smartly casts Woody Allen in this wryly observant, sentimenttinged New York comedy that tells the story of an ageing bookseller-turned-unlikely-pimp and a fifty-something junior florist who accepts the job as his gigolo. “Only rare people buy rare books anymore”, says Allen as Murray, but as the two soon learn, the oldest profession is still thriving. Vanessa Paradis, Liev Schreiber and Sharon Stone also star.

The Two Faces Of January

Tue 22 Jul 11am | 2pm | 8pm

12A | 96mins | Hossein Amini

An American con artist (Viggo Mortensen) and his wife (Kirsten Dunst) strike up a relationship with a stranger (Oscar Isaac) in 1960s Athens, in this adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s suspense thriller.

Venus In Fur (La Vénus à la fourrure)

Thu 24 Jul 8pm

TBC | 96mins | French | Roman Polanski

Thomas (Mathieu Amalric) is a theatre director staging an adaptation of an obscure 19th-century Austrian novel. Frustrated by the quality of actresses he has auditioned, Thomas is about to give up when mysterious Vanda (Emmanuelle Seigner, director Polanski’s wife) arrives unannounced and word perfect. As the two begin a fevered, intense, and at times aggressive collaboration, the lines between passion and obsession (and theatre and reality) begin to blur.

Grace Of Monaco

PG | 103mins | Olivier Dahan | TBC

Fri 25 Jul 8pm & Sun 27 Jul 5pm

Set in 1962 and starring Nicole Kidman and Tim Roth, the film focuses on Grace’s life after she married Rainier III, Prince of Monaco, and retired from acting. While contemplating overtures from Alfred Hitchcock to return to Hollywood, Grace gets caught up in a political dispute between her husband and France’s Charles De Gaulle. The resulting international crisis and impending French invasion pose a dilemma not just for her family, her marriage and her country, but also for Grace’s private life.
