The Miseducation of Cameron Post15

In 1993, a teenage girl is forced into a gay conversion therapy center by her conservative guardians. The second feature from Desiree Akhavan, the director of 2014’s bisexual indie drama Appropriate Behaviour is as witty and sexy as its predecessor, but goes to a darker and more introspective place. Chloë Grace Moretz plays the titular Cameron, a lesbian teenager who has been sent to a Christian gay conversion camp (much like in Jamie Babbit’s But I’m a Cheerleader) where young people are psychoanalysed and brainwashed into being straight. SSA (“same sex attraction”) is treated as a disease, making it a potent examination of internalised homophobia and more general teenage self-hatred, though the film is buoyed by joyously good-bad early 90s fashion and music, and American Honey’s Sasha Lane as “Jane Fonda”, a teen marijuana farmer with a prosthetic leg.SH The Guardian

Cold War15

Pawlikowski follows his stunning, Oscar-winning Ida with this epic romance that spans decades and nations to tell a tragic, moving love story. In the ruins of post-war Poland, Wiktor and Zula fall deeply, obsessively and destructively in love. Fatefully mismatched, they are separated by politics, temperament and unfortunate twists of fate - an impossible love story in impossible times. Tiny cogs in the Soviet propaganda machine, they dream of escaping to the West. One day in Berlin as they spot their chance, they make a split decision that will mark their lives forever. Sumptuously shot in luminous black and white, this offers a stunning marriage of haunting imagery and heartfelt emotion while retaining a quiet humour throughout.

BlacKKKlansman15

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.

The Wife15

Poignant and powerful, Close’s wonderfully subtle performance might just earn her the Oscar that has so far eluded her. After nearly forty years of marriage, Joan and Joe are complements. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Joe is vain. Joan is self-effacing. Joe enjoys his very public role as a Great American Novelist, the devoted Joan pours her considerable intellect, charm, and diplomacy into the private role of Great Man's Wife. Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Joan is about to drop a bombshell. This cleverly interweaves the story of the couple's youthful passion with a portrait of a marriage, and a lifetime's shared compromises, secrets, and love. It’s a pleasure simply to watch Close and Pryce at their considerable best.

Stan And Ollie12a

As comedy’s most famous double act Steve Coogan and John C Reilly, two brilliant physical comedians, give delightful performances nailing the duo’s body language, mannerisms and routines. 1953 with their immense fame on the wane, Stan ‘Laurel’ and Ollie ‘Hardy’ embark on a gruelling farewell tour of British seaside towns. The tour starts badly; modest music halls, cramped little guesthouses, they struggle for audiences. But a series of TV guest spots rekindle the country’s interest and the buzz grows as they head towards a big London finale. But old resentments surface, particularly once ‘the wives’, Lucille and Ida, (a hilarious double act in their own right) join them. A charming, poignant, insightful study of lifelong male friendship this is a fitting tribute to the greatest pair of comedians of all time.

Ryan Cook

Mixing classic country music with modern satire, Ryan Cook has forged a sound between contemporary folk and dyed-in-the wool country. With nuances of pop and western swing, Ryan's songbook reminisces the early hillbilly and folk pioneers but stays very much in the current landscape. Ryan has toured as an opener for Country purists like Dwight Yoakam, Rosanne Cash, & Travis Tritt. His acoustic live show combines thumb-picking guitar styles, original folk & country ballads and vintage music from the 1940’s and 1950’s.

1945 (TBC)12a

Beautifully framed and shot, this is the best film about the impact of the Holocaust I have ever seen, made without a single image of the concentration camps. August 1945, the war is ending. Two Jews arrive at a remote rural railway station. As the villagers prepare for a big wedding, word spreads like wildfire, sending them into a panic of paranoia and recrimination. The local ‘big man’ in particular is desperate to cover up how he profited from the Jews being deported. Tautly told using the camera rather than too many words, this slowly ratchets up the tension to a stunning, thought-provoking finale that lingers long in the mind.
