Madame Butterfly (Recorded Live) (U)

'Madame Butterfly' first saw the light of day in La Scala in February 1904 and it was hotly contested. It became the victim of an ambush organised by the enemies of the composer and his editor but to their surprise, the audience were witnessing the very latest developments in European musical theatre. That same year, Giacomo Puccini revised and restaged the opera in Brescia to great acclaim, making Madame Butterfly one of his most performed works to date. The opera returned to Teatro Alla Scala, Milan in 2016 for the first time since its 1904 debut. The story follows the young Japanese geisha, Cio-Cio-San who clings on to the belief that her arranged marriage to a visiting American naval officer is loving and permanent. Set against the backdrop 20th century Japan, the story triggers ideas about cultural and sexual imperialism, coupled with Puccini’s lyrical score, making Madame Butterfly a timeless classic.

The true-life tale of arthritic Maudie Dowley (Sally Hawkins).

She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick. What Lou doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane. Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that. What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of color. And neither of them knows they're going to change each other for all time.

Monsieur Hulot's Holiday (U)

Tati’s creation is a treasure of comedic observation of bourgeoisie manners at the seaside. Monsieur Hulot, amiable and courteous but blessed with lolloping limbs, pipe and hat, became one of cinema's best-loved characters. Throwing himself into everything from a tennis match to a fancy dress party, Hulot is an accident personified - a gentle lunatic, unaware that his enthusiasms are forging a chain of disaster. While most of the gags are visual there are some excellent sound gags too. Unmissable!

My Cousin Rachel (12a)
