TWO OF US
Mar 24 @ 7:00 pm

Pensioners Nina (Barbara Sukowa) and Madeleine (Martine Chevallier) have hidden their deep and passionate love for many decades. From the point of view of those surrounding them, including Madeleine’s meddling daughter (Léa Drucker), they are simply two neighbours sharing a hallway during their sunset years. In reality, this landing is a bridge between two worlds: one belonging to a widowed, doting grandmother, the other to a free-spirited, fiercely independent woman who longs to spend her life with the person she loves. Clandestinely, Nina and Madeleine share a tender life, moving freely between their apartments until, one day, an unexpected event closes the portal. In this new reality, their secret cannot remain hidden if they are to stay together — and their unconditional love is put to the test.

France-based Italian director Filippo Meneghetti, along with writer Malysone Bovorasmy (in collaboration with Florence Vignon and Marion Vernoux), uses the utmost care and benevolence in crafting his bold, lustrous directorial debut. Sukowa, Chevallier, and Drucker are endlessly compelling in their performances of characters who are both sincere and flawed. Two of Us is a film of longing and revelatory beauty.

MATTHEW BOURNE’S THE RED SHOES
Mar 28 @ 2:00 pm
THE DOUBLE OLIVIER AWARD-WINNING SMASH HIT RETURNS

Based on the film by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger and the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale

A sell-out for its world premiere in 2016, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant adaptation of the legendary film returns to London, having won two Olivier Awards and dazzled audiences across the UK and the USA.

The Red Shoes is a tale of obsession, possession and one girl’s dream to be the greatest dancer in the world. Victoria Page lives to dance but her ambitions become a battleground between the two men who inspire her passion.

THANK YOU TO OUR STAGE TO SCREEN PARTNER

 

 

Set to the achingly romantic music of golden-age Hollywood composer Bernard Herrmann, The Red Shoes is orchestrated by Terry Davies and played live by the New Adventures Orchestra, with cinematic designs by Lez Brotherston, lighting by Paule Constable and sound by Paul Groothuis.

With Adam Cooper, returning to New Adventures after more than 20 years, and Ashley Shaw, and Dominic North, Liam Mower, Michela Meazza, Glenn Graham and Cordelia Braithwaite set to revive their acclaimed original roles, this intoxicating drama will dazzle your senses and break your heart.

SOUND OF METAL
Mar 31 @ 7:00 pm

Cinema is an art of sound and vision, but it’s the rare film that explores both with equal vitality. In a remarkably assured feature debut, Darius Marder finds a cinematic language that’s perfectly matched to this story of a man fighting to hold on to what defines him.

Riz Ahmed is a noise metal drummer. Shirtless and full of coiled intensity, he hammers out ferocious sets with his girlfriend and bandmate (Olivia Cooke). But with each show, a persistent ringing in his ears worsens until sound drops out altogether. For a deaf musician and his partner who’ve built their precarious existence doing what they know and love, what happens now? If he can’t recover his hearing, who will he become?

Marder, who co-wrote the screenplay for Derek Cianfrance’s The Place Beyond the Pines (TIFF ’12), begins in similar territory here — characters living by their own rules. But this film moves in new directions, and according to its own beat. As this drummer explores medical interventions to restore his hearing and begins to learn about both the experience and the culture of deafness, he confronts the gap between external sounds and that tinny inner noise he can’t shake: the sound of metal. Marder and his team do groundbreaking work to convey that subjective sonic experience, while Ahmed is simply brilliant and fully immersed in his character. As the story takes one surprising turn and then another, it builds to a journey that looks — and sounds — like life.

“A picture which uses the medium of cinema to its fullest extent, both visually and aurally” –Wendy Ide, Screen Daily

THE MAURITANIAN
Apr 7 @ 7:00 pm
JODIE FOSTER wins Best Supporting Actress at the 2021 Golden Globe Awards
Directed by Kevin Macdonald and based on the NY Times best-selling memoir “Guantánamo Diary” by Mohamedou Ould Slahi, this is inspiring the true story of Slahi’s fight for freedom after being detained and imprisoned without charge by the U.S. Government for years. Alone and afraid, Slahi (Tahar Rahim) finds allies in defense attorney Nancy Hollander (Jodie Foster) and her associate Teri Duncan (Shailene Woodley) who battle the U.S. government in a fight for justice that tests their commitment to the law and their client at every turn. Their controversial advocacy, along with evidence uncovered by a formidable military prosecutor, Lt. Colonel Stuart Couch (Benedict Cumberbatch), uncovers shocking truths and ultimately proves that the human spirit cannot be locked up.

MINARI
Apr 14 @ 7:00 pm

Sundance 2020 Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award

Steven Yeun and Han Ye-ri star in Lee Isaac Chung’s tender story of a family’s move to a tiny Arkansas farm in search of their own American dream.

Minari is another landmark entry in Asian American cinema, following the likes of Lulu Wang’s The Farewell. ” –Kristen Yoonsoo Kim, The Nation

A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean-American family who move to a tiny farm in search of their own American dream.

Originally from South Korea, Jacob and Monica Yi (the superb Steven Yeun and Han Ye-ri) have just relocated from California to rural Arkansas along with their children, preteen Anne (Noel Kate Cho) and young David (Alan Kim), in pursuit of Jacob’s plan to work a tough plot of land and sell the produce to a buyer in Texas. Meanwhile, Jacob and a doubtful Monica — who’d rather be back in California — both work to support this venture with jobs at a local hatchery. The family’s home changes with the arrival of Monica’s sly, foul-mouthed, but very loving mother (Youn Yuh-jung). Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what truly makes a home.

The fourth feature from Lee Isaac Chung (Munyurangabo), Minari is a film the writer-director always wanted to make: a deeply personal, immersive journey into reconciling two worlds, with boundless affection for both. The film won both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award in the US Dramatic Competition at Sundance 2020.
