97mins

Dir. Petra Vople (Switzerland 2017, 97mins 12)

Unbelievably, Swiss women did not have the vote in 1970, then a demur housewife in a small time village decided to get political and win the vote for women. This fictionalised entertaining crowd-pleaser delivers a genuine and rousing sense of sisterhood in Switzerland's entry to the Oscars.

105mins

Dir. Michael Gracey (US 2017, 105mins PG)

The audience hit of the year. Auto-tuned and full of CGI, it makes no difference to the sensational reception of this exuberant celebration of the life of T.P. Barnum (Hugh Jackman). But don't forget the theme of discrimination, the excellent Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya and Keala Settle and the brilliant costumes of Ellen Mirojnick.

Picturedrome, Holmfirth

115mins

Dir. Martin MacDonagh (US/UK 2017 115mins 12)

Multi-Oscar winning film with a great central performance from the ever reliable Frances McDormand as the plucky and stubborn vigilante who confronts the police and exacts cinder-black revenge for the tragedy of her daughters' death by erecting three billboards to her grief and rage.

Dir. Dorota Kobiela/Hugh Welchman (Poland/UK/US 2017, 94mins 12)

Oscar nominated, the world's first entirely painted feature is a labour of love and creativity. An awe inspiring and stunning visual animated life of the artist Vincent van Gogh.


Sat, 26/05/2018 - 2:00pm
Southgate Theatre, Honley
ADMISSION £5
98mins

Dir. Henry Koster (US 1953, 98mins PG)

Marvellous passionate romance based on Daphne du Maurier's gothic novel about an anguished cousin (the first Hollywood role for Richard Burton) who tries to unravel the suspicious circumstances of the sudden death of his Cornish uncle, a man of property, and the involvement of his mysterious wife (Olivia de Havilland).

The true story of the writer of the feminist superheroine Wonder Woman, the secret life shared by him, his wife and their female lover, and the attacks on the wartime comic for sexual perversity.

Dir. Ildiko Enyedi (Hungary 2017, 116mins 15)

Film of the year? Great originality, exquisite and beautifully composed direction in an eccentric but moving romantic and sometimes brutal drama that has the look of an Edward Hopper painting about how two people connect with each other in life and in dreams in a love without rules. The winner of the Berlin prize and Hungary's Oscar entry for best foreign language film.

Dir. Maysaloun Hamoud (Israel/France 2016, 102mins 15)

This exhilarating first feature from Palestinian director Maysaloun Hamoud caused a sensation in Israel for her depiction of three free-spirited and joyful modern Palestinian women living in Tel Aviv. She extracts wonderful performances from the actors in this slyly subversive award-winning feminist drama.
