Meeting Gorbachev (TBC) (PG)

Filled with unforgettable archive materials, Werner Herzog’s latest is a riveting documentary celebrating Gorbachev's many remarkable achievements. In his usual deadpan way Herzog makes a fine interviewer who does not disguise his affection for arguably, the world's most influential living politician. Gorbachev not only negotiated successfully with the U.S. to reduce nuclear weapons, but also gave up Soviet control of Eastern Europe allowing for the reunification of Germany and paving the way for the complete dissolution of the Soviet Union. All in six years! Thirty years on from the fall of the Berlin Wall this is a dramatic reminder of the drastic and unforeseeable ways the world can change for the better. “a riveting and moving portrait” Epire Winner Audience Award Biografilm Festival 2019

Moliere (12a)

1644, Paris, and 22-year-old Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, also known as Molière, is not yet the writer that history recognizes as the father and true master of comic satire, author of The Misanthrope and Tartuffe, and a dramatist to rank alongside Shakespeare and Sophocles. Far from it. He is, in fact, a failed actor.

Mrs Lowry & Son (PG)

Beloved British artist L.S. Lowry (Timothy Spall) lived all his life with his over-bearing mother Elizabeth (Vanessa Redgrave). Bed-ridden and bitter, Elizabeth actively tried to dissuade her bachelor son from pursuing his artistic ambitions, whilst never failing to voice her opinion at what a disappointment he was to her. By turns hilarious, brutal and tender, and featuring yet another tremendous performance from Timothy Spall, this has an appealing old-school charm. Often sad and unsettling, this is also livelier and less oppressive than it may sound thanks to the fine writing, deft direction, and the superb, if painful interplay between Redgrave and Spall. “An entertaining showcase for two first-class performers.” Guardia
