American Honey

Dir. Andrea Arnold, US, 2016

Cannes and Bafta winner about a teenage girl with nothing to lose who takes to the road and discovers the power of love. Breathtaking photography in a US magical mystery tour by British director Andre Arnold. Long but the journey will be remembered.

Krisha

Dir. Trey Edward Shults, US, 2016

An independent and unique gem from first time director Trey Shults. Tensions rise at a Thanksgiving gathering when the troubled and alcoholic Krisha - in a truly stunning and totally unnerving performance - reunites with her family.

Food & Film - Truman

Dir. Cesc Gay (Spain, Argentina 2016, 108mins 15)

Wise, wistful and well-observed film about two friends (and a dog) who have a final bittersweet reunion in Spain. A lovely film with a wonderful tone and great performances from Ricardo Darin and Javier Camara (and the dog).

Captain Fantastic

Dir. Matt Ross, US, 2016

Wonderfully enjoyable and at times thought-provoking comedy-drama with Viggo Mortensen as the hippie father with six children living in perfect isolation in the Pacific Northwest forest who has to journey into the real world when their mother dies. Pleasurably free-wheeling and humorous, audiences love it.

50th Anniversary- The Valley of the Bees

Dir Frantisek Vlacil, Czechoslovakia, 1967

Mid-60s Czech new wave film production was incredibly impressive. One of its forgotten classics is this beautiful, visionary medieval tale manhood by country's greatest director of the boy who grows into. Powerful, engrossing it is no surprise that Stanley Kubrick considered it to be one of the best films of the 1960s.

Hackshaw Ridge

Dir. Mel Gibson, Australia, 2016

Electrifying true story of the ostracised US pacifist medic who won the Congressional Medal of Honour in WW2 for saving his fellow soldiers in a brutal and savage battle that makes for old-fashioned riveting cinema.

Paterson

Jim Jarmusch, USA, 2016

A very special film. An award-winning sublime, lovely mellow comedy about a New Jersey bus-driving poet from America’s leading independent film-maker.

Sherpa

Jennifer Peedom, Australia, 2015

Gripping, absorbing and visually magnificent documentary of changing attitudes of Sherpas and climbers on the world’s highest mountain during the 2014 ice avalanche disaster.
