Friday 27th February
What we Did on our Holiday
Directors: Andy Hamilton & Guy Jenkin
Stars: David Tennant, Rosamund Pike, Billy Connolly
Written by the team that produced TV’s Outnumbered, this has the same comedy gold woven into a touching drama of a troubled marriage, as a family attempts a show of togetherness on a last holiday with their ailing grandfather. Hilarious and moving – the children steal the show.
Cert 12A, 95 minutes. Comedy, drama
Friday 27th March
Director: Ritesh Batra
Stars: Irrfan Khan (Slumdog Millionaire, Life of Pi), Nimrat Kaur (Homeland)
A delightful gem of a film which has become an international success, demonstrating that Indian films are not just about Bollywood. It is essentially a love story between an unhappy young wife, who cooks and sends lunch to her husband at work, and a lonely older man who receives the lunchbox in error. A mix of English and Hindi languages.
Cert PG, 104 minutes. Drama, romance
The Imitation Game
Director: Morten Tyldum
Stars: Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode
Needing no introduction, the film that everyone wants to see this year (and see again): the story of Alan Turing, mathematical genius of Bletchley Park who contributed more than anyone to cracking the German’s Enigma code in World War II. Thrilling, heart-breaking, sensational.
Cert 12A, 114 minutes. Biography, drama, thriller
