THE HEIRESSES

 

Another great award-winner from this year. Financial problems hit a wealthy female couple and the ensuring problems create a personal revolution for Ana Brun in a truly mesmerising performance. A quiet film of restlessness, beautifully observed beneath which is an ocean of emotion.

 

(Dir. Marcelo Martinessi, Paraguay, 2018, 94mins 12A)

An impassioned film about much more than journalism. At its centre is a fine performance from Rosamund Pike as the celebrated, complex, forceful but flawed war correspondent Marie Colvin whose humanity shines through amidst the utter destruction of the many conflicts she covered.

Rare screening for what is often cited as the greatest war film ever made and the model for many films in that genre. Shot in Cambodia as the US involvement in the Vietnam War was beginning, the writer/director draws on his own experiences as a French soldier in the Indo-China war in 1954 and as a war photographer.

 

Dir. Pierre Schoenderffer (France 1965, 100mins 12)

Holmfirth's own comedic actor introduces his favourite film - a film that Stanley Kubrick called the 'best historical drama ever made'.

 

The last weeks of one of the leaders of the French Revolution, George Danton, brilliantly played by Gerard Depardieu, and his battle with Robespierre in what is an overwhelming indictment of government oppression. The great Polish director created an Oscar winning film that still today, holds a mirror to the past and to the present.

 

Dir. Andrzej Wadja (France 1983 136mins 12)
