Back to Burgundy (15)

Three siblings reunite at their home in picturesque Burgundy to save the family vineyard in this tender tale of a new generation finding its own unique blend from acclaimed director Cédric Klapisch (L'Auberge Espagnole). Jean (Pio Marmai), the black sheep of the family, unexpectedly returns home from a decade abroad to reconnect with his hospitalized father. He's welcomed by his strong-willed sister, Juliette (Ana Girardot), who took over the reins of the vineyard after their father fell ill, and Jeremie (Francois Civil), the youngest of the three who has recently married into one of the region's more prestigious wine families. Their father passes shortly after Jean's return, leaving them with the estate and a looming inheritance tax of half a million dollars. As four seasons and two harvests go by, Jean, Juliette, and Jeremie have to learn to reinvent their relationship and trust in each other as they work to preserve the land that ties them together.

Bait (15)

British filmmaker Mark Jenkin’s first full-length feature Bait has been critically lauded since its Berlinale premiere. Continuing his focus on handmade filmmaking from his shorts work and shot in grainy 16mm black and white, it chronicles a Cornish coastal town under threat from modernity. Fisherman Martin (Edward Rowe) is struggling to buy a boat while coping with a family rivalry and the influx of London money, Airbnb and stag parties to his harbour village. The summer brings simmering tensions between the locals and newcomers to boiling point, with tragic consequences. Around this drama, Jenkin has fashioned a film that feels original, experimental and often mythic in its observations of the timeless natural world alongside the everyday human one. Strikingly atmospheric and stylistically bold, rooted in local culture and community, Bait is both nostalgic and angrily contemporary and positions Jenkin as an exciting new voice in British cinema.

A nerve-racking battle against the clock begins…

Battle of Britain (PG)

Battle Of Britain is a spectacular retelling of a true story that shows courage at its inspiring best. Few defining moments can change the outcome of war. But when the outnumbered Royal Air Force defied insurmountable odds in engaging the German Luftwaffe, they may well have altered the course of history!
