  • Synopsis

    Director: Oliver Parker With Michael Caine, Glenda Jackson Runtime: 96 mins In 2014, near-nonagenarian Bernie Jordan (Michael Caine) is sad to miss out on an official group outing to the D-Day anniversary in France. Encouraged by wife Rene (Glenda Jackson), he sneaks out from his care home and goes on one last big adventure to cross the Channel, while reminiscing about his wartime experiences. WHY WATCH THIS FILM? It was Glenda Jackson’s last film, and who doesn’t love Michael Caine? “There’s a real emotional heft to the storytelling and Caine, at 90, is a knockout.” The Guardian “A moving and surprisingly nuanced drama offering far more than flag-waving nostalgia. Superb performances from Michael Caine and Glenda Jackson ensure the latter’s final screen role is fittingly dignified.” Empire “The real draw is watching Caine, who plays his role with complete dignity. Jackson, too, is an irascible presence, and her performance will move many. The final shots of the two of them on the promenade suggest two epic acting careers that are coming to a close – and suitably, doing so hand-in-hand.” Radio Times

  • Synopsis

    Director: Thaddeus O’Sullivan With Maggie Smith, Kathy Bates, Laura Linney Runtime: 90 mins It’s 1967 in Ballygar, a hard-knocks community in outer Dublin. For the womenfolk who dream of throwing off the shackles of domestic life for a short moment of freedom, there’s just one chance: to win a pilgrimage to the sacred French town of Lourdes. And with a little benevolent interference from their cheeky and rebellious priest, close friends Lily, Eileen, Dolly and Sheila are the 'lucky' few to win this ticket of a lifetime at their riotous local raffle night. WHY WATCH THIS FILM? For its three wonderful lead actresses. “At 88, Smith’s comic timing is as beautifully crisp as ever, but she also gets some fierce scenes of suppressed grief over the loss of her son and one lovely scene of reconciliation with Linney that is blindingly good. It’s all in the women’s gestures — a lowered head, a tight clasp of the hand — as if what they have to communicate might overpower any attempt to put it into words. When you see two world-class actresses click like that it’s miracle enough.” The Sunday Times “It's a gentle, unchallenging film with a good heart and the period detail is scrumptious.” The Arts Desk
