Director/Writer: Andrew Haigh

Stars: Charlotte Rampling, Tom Courtney, Geraldine James, Dolly Wells

An intelligent, moving drama with tour de force performances from Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtney, playing a long-married couple whose personal world is turned upside down by news from the past.  The landscape of the Norfolk locations reflects the mood beautifully. The film has won several major international awards, and has been compared to Brief Encounter with its quiet and subtle unfolding of a completely absorbing story.

The-MartianThe Martian

Director: Ridley Scott

Veteran British director Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Thelma & Louise) returns to form with this exciting and unusually thought-provoking science fiction drama. Matt Damon is the stranded astronaut left behind on Mars, exhibiting some inventive survival techniques while the support team back on Earth struggle to rescue him. A strong cast, original story and the best in movie special effects creating a fabulous Martian world, combine to make this a cut above the usual Hollywood fare.

lady_in_the_vanThe Lady in the Van

Director: Nicholas Hytner
Writer: Alan Bennett

Stars: Maggie Smith, Dominic Cooper, James Corden, Jim Broadbent, Frances de la Tour

This film has quite a pedigree, and it lives up to its promise. Written by Alan Bennett, it’s based on a story from his life, when a homeless woman took up residence in a van in his street. Maggie Smith, a long way from Downton Abbey, plays the eccentric woman with great sensitivity, when a lesser actor could create a caricature. She’s supported by a host of British acting royalty. Director Nicholas Hytner also helmed Bennett’s The History Boys.

Certificate 12A, 104 minutes. Biography, drama
