Elisabeth Moss, Katherine Waterston, Patick Fugit
A tense tale of a friendship in turmoil, intimately shot, and with echoes of retro psychological thrillers. A retreat to a remote lake house proves to be less than relaxing for 2 women: each have things to talk over, not least the breakdowns of their relationship with one another and their sanity.
Jennifer Saunders, Joanna Lumley, Jane Horrocks
Edina and Patsy crash onto the big screen in a StollyBolly-fuelled adventure set on the fabulously fashionable French Riviera after a PR nightmare involving Kate Moss and the River Thames. Glamorous and humorous with all the faces that made Ab Fab a cult TV fave in the 1990s.
Leonard Whiting, Olivia Hussey, Milo O'Shea
A beautiful and engaging version of the Shakespeare film, newly restored, this is an attractive and spectacular piece of work, robustly using real outdoor locations and groundbreakingly casting young actors close to the characters’ supposed age. A perfect companion piece to Branagh’s new version shown earlier this month.
Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke, Julianne Moore
A delightfully bright comedy about a single woman who desperately wants to have a child. Just as she is embarking on her plan for artificial insemination, she meets an unhappily married man and, falling in love, adjusts her plans for motherhood. Reviewing her life years later she realises that, while everything has worked out more or less according to her plan, she isn't happy.
Huma Abedin, Amit Bagga, Adam S. Barta
Unrestricted access allows us to follow intimately the downfall of once-promising congressman Anthony Weiner who scuppered his own political career because of inappropriate postings on the Internet. An insightful and entertaining documentary that chronicles his failed campaign for the 2013 New York Mayor's Office.
Patricia Clarkson, Ben Kingsley, Grace Gummer
A compelling double portrait of 2 people from different backgrounds brought together behind the wheel of a car. She is a highbrow literary critic unceremoniously dumped by her husband; he is an immigrant with a complex history that is not apparent from his lowly position as part-time cabbie and driving instructor. Issues of marriage, class, and ethnic differences are skilfully addressed as the characters connect without being drawn into a romantic affair.
A flat in Ladbroke Grove, West London. 1952.
When Hester Collyer is found by her neighbours in the aftermath of a failed suicide attempt, the story of her tempestuous affair with a former RAF pilot and the breakdown of her marriage to a High Court judge begins to emerge. With it comes a portrait of need, loneliness and long-repressed passion. Behind the fragile veneer of post-war civility burns a brutal sense of loss and longing.
A darkly comic new take on Brecht and Weill’s raucous musical broadcast live from the stage of the National Theatre.
London scrubs up for the coronation. The thieves are on the make, the whores on the pull, the police cutting deals to keep it all out of sight. Mr and Mrs Peachum are looking forward to a bumper day in the beggary business, but their daughter didn’t come home last night and it’s all about to kick off… With Olivier Award-winner Rory Kinnear as Macheath alongside Rosalie Craig as Polly Peachum and Haydn Gwynne as Mrs Peachum. This bold, anarchic production is brought to you by a creative powerhouse; adapted by Simon Stephens, (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), and directed by Rufus Norris, (London Road).
