Beauty and the Beast (2017) (PG)

Disney's animated classic takes on a new form, with a widened mythology and an all-star cast. A young prince, imprisoned in the form of a beast, can be freed only by true love. What may be his only opportunity arrives when he meets Belle, the only human girl to ever visit the castle since it was enchanted.

Belle (12a)

BELLE is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle, the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral. Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield and his wife, Belle's lineage affords her certain privileges, yet the colour of her skin prevents her from fully participating in the traditions of her social standing. Left to wonder if she will ever find love, Belle falls for an idealistic young vicar's son bent on change who, with her help, shapes Lord Mansfield's role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England.

BlacKKKlansman (15)

This powerful, amusing depiction of the race divide in 1980s USA can be enjoyed by all audiences, but is specially geared towards those of us who have never had to live with the repercussions of racism. When Rob, Colorado Springs first black officer goes undercover to infiltrate the Klu Klux Klan all sorts of shenanigans follow. Lee wrings as many laughs as possible from a farcical situation, the hapless KKK and the reactions of Rob’s police colleagues. Revealing the horrors of white racism from lynchings and segregation to Trump and his clowns, you will laugh, but also feel weird and uneasy. This may be the year's most important and relevant piece of cinema, highly recommended.

Blazing Saddles (12a)

The Ultimate Western Spoof. A town where everyone seems to be named Johnson is in the way of the railroad. In order to grab their land, Hedley Lemar, a politically connected nasty person, sends in his henchmen to make the town unlivable. After the sheriff is killed, the town demands a new sheriff from the Governor. Hedley convinces him to send the town the first Black sheriff in the west. Bart is a sophisticated urbanite who will have some difficulty winning over the townspeople.

Bohemian Rhapsody (TBC) (12a)

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

Book Club (12)

Four lifelong friends’ lives are turned upside down to hilarious ends when their book club tackles the infamous Fifty Shades of Grey. From discovering new romance to rekindling old flames, they inspire each other to make their next chapter the best chapter.

Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) (PG)

A sophisticated comedy studded with sparkling moments, Breakfast at Tiffany’s tells the story of two bohemians falling in love against a Manhattan backdrop. When aspiring writer Paul Varjak (George Peppard) moves into his new apartment, he is both intrigued by and drawn to his unconventional neighbour Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn). A Givenchy-clad free spirit, Holly is a party girl whose intensely stylish façade masks an inner despair and a hidden past. Henry Mancini provides the musical score, with the Oscar-winning ballad ‘Moon River’ underscoring a sublimely romantic climax.

Breathe (12a)

BREATHE is based on the true story of producer Jonathan Cavendish's own parents. It is an inspirational and highly emotional celebration of bravery and human possibility, a love story about living every breath as though it's your last. Adventurous and charismatic, Robin Cavendish (Andrew Garfield) has his whole life ahead of him when he is paralysed by polio whilst in Africa in 1958. Against all advice, Robin's wife Diana (Claire Foy) brings him home from hospital where her devotion and witty determination transcends his disability. Together they refuse to be imprisoned by his suffering; dazzling others with their humour, courage and lust for life.

Bridge of Spies (12a)

During the Cold War, the Soviet Union captures U.S. pilot Francis Gary Powers after shooting down his U-2 spy plane. Sentenced to 10 years in prison, Powers' only hope is New York lawyer James Donovan (Tom Hanks), recruited by a CIA operative to negotiate his release. Donovan boards a plane to Berlin, hoping to win the young man's freedom through a prisoner exchange. If all goes well, the Russians would get Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance), the convicted spy who Donovan defended in court.
