Babette's Feast (U)

Adapted with great sensitivity and invention from Isak Dinesen’s short story (itself inspired by The Tempest), this truly lovely tale of everyday passion, magic and miracles is a delicacy to savour. Relocating the story from a bourgeois Norwegian port to a remote, windswept Jutland hamlet so steeped in Lutheran spirituality it feels like something out of a Dreyer film, Axel traces the strange chain of events that led to the two elderly daughters of a famously pious pastor taking on, as their cook, a Parisienne who was until the advent of the Commune one of the city’s most celebrated chefs. At once poignant and funny, gently ironic and quietly compassionate, the story – beautifully performed by all concerned, but most especially by Audran, clearly relishing her role as a gastronomic wizard – casts its spell carefully yet confidently, culminating in the titular banquet: improbable, mouthwatering, and supremely regenerative.

Battle of the Sexes (12a)

The 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs became the most watched televised sports event of all time. Trapped in the media glare, King and Riggs were on opposites sides of a binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. With her husband urging her to fight for equal pay, the private King was also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, while Riggs gambled his legacy and reputation in a bid to relive the glories of his past.

Bohemian Rhapsody (12a)

This is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen and lead singer Freddie Mercury, tracing the band’s meteoric rise. They reach unparalleled success but Freddie shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career, only to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. Facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music

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)

Based on the true story of producer Jonathan Cavendish's own parents; an inspirational love story about living every breath as though it's your last. Adventurous and charismatic, Robin Cavendish 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, brings him home from hospital. Together they refuse to be imprisoned by his suffering; dazzling others with their humour, courage and lust for life.

Initially homesick, she adjusts to her new surroundings meeting Italian-American Tony Fiorello with whom she becomes romantically involved.
