THUR 16 Sept
Studio 609 MINARI (Cert 12)
A film that “beautifully balances the feelgood and the gritty” according to Mark Kermode in The Guardian. Yearning to own a small patch of land Jacob Yi (played by THE WALKING DEAD’s Steven Yuen), relocates his Korean-American family: sceptical wife, Monica, and their children, David and Anne, from California to 1980s rural Arkansas, to start afresh and capture the elusive American Dream.
However, new beginnings are always challenging, and to find out what is best for the family, let alone start a 50-acre farm to grow and sell Korean fruits and vegetables, is easier said than done.
Nominated for many awards but Youn Yuh-Jung won both the Oscar and BAFTA for Supporting Actress as the family’s cantankerous Grandma.
THUR 16 Sept
Performance Hall THE FATHER (Cert 12)
“Another powerful, mesmerizing and downright heartbreaking performance by the great Anthony Hopkins” said The Observer.
Depicting the uncompromisingly poignant trajectory of a man, once strong and ebullient, whose reality crumbles little by little before our eyes but also the story of Anne (Olivia Colman) his daughter, who faces an equally illuminating and painful dilemma: what must she do with her father? Does she have the right to live her own life? What happens when she must become parent to her own father? Can she provide dignity for her father, can she preserve her own dignity and grace? Can she fight for the enduring connection between daughter and father?
With his performance Anthony Hopkins became the oldest Oscar winner in a competitive acting category and won the BAFTA also. The powerful screenplay won the Oscar and BAFTA for its adaptation from the director’s original stage play.
WED, 29 Sept
Studio 609 SAINT MAUD (Cert 15)
A terrific debut from writer/director Rose Glass, this story of a pious young nurse caring for a terminally ill woman blends elements of horror and strong psychological drama. The young nurse Maud (Morfydd Clark) develops an obsessive conviction that she must save her ward’s soul from eternal damnation – whatever the cost. Scarborough locations represent an unnamed out-of-season resort. ScreenDaily said “a terrific performance from Jennifer Ehle and a bold, quietly nerve-shredding lead from Morfydd Clark”.
WED, 29 Sept
Performance Hall SUPERNOVA (Cert 15)
Sam (Colin Firth) and Tusker (Stanley Tucci), partners of twenty years, are traveling across England in their old camper van visiting friends, family and places from their past. Following a life-changing diagnosis, their time together has become more important than ever, until secret plans test their love like never before. The Guardian said of the performances, “The veteran pair are on magnificent form in a drama about love and mortality that is all the more powerful for its restraint.”
