This Oscar nominated film tells the true story of five-year-old Saroo who gets lost on a train which takes him thousands of miles across India.

Then, at the age of 25 and with just a few memories of his childhood, he determines to find his family and return to his first home.

'A deeply empathetic performance from Dev Patel and an unflinching view of child poverty on the streets of Calcutta provide a winning edge to Lion.' Kevin Maher, Times

I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO (12A)

Wednesday, 20th September, 7.45pm

Fletton House

Director: Raoul Peck
Release: 2016
Runtime: 1hr 33 min

"The story of the negro in America is the story of America - it is not a pretty story." In the wake of Black Lives Matter and Obama’s presidency, this powerful film uses the words and ideas of American writer James Baldwin to produce a cinematic version of the book he never completed. It is a visceral narration about race in America that tracks the lives and assinations of Baldwin’s friends: Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X and Medgar Evers. Though partly rooted in the struggle for equality in the 50s and 60s, this film is about what it means to be black in America today.

'...you will be astounded by the shear brilliance of his polemic.’ The Independent

STAHL THEATRE
West St, Oundle, PE8 4EJ

Cast: Taraji P Henson, Octavia Spencer, Javelle Monáe, Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst

Director: Theodore Melfi
Release: 2016
Runtime 2hr 7 min

Based on a best-selling and groundbreaking book by Margot Shetterley, this movie tells the hitherto forgotten story of three black women in America and their stunning contributions to the sixties Space Race, at a time when the USA was falling behind the Soviets. Shocking in its portrayal of everyday segregation - you won’t forget the coffee pot or that long walk in those shoes - this movie tells its story in an accessible and uplifting way. Kevin Costner and a scary Kirsten Dunst do a good job in support while the three leads steal the show.

‘.. a story of NASA’s past that makes for compelling and important cinema.’ Simon Brew

SULLY (12A)

Sunday, 1st October, 7.45pm

STAHL THEATRE
West St, Oundle, PE8 4EJ

Cast: Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, Laura Linney
Director: Clint Eastwood
Release: 2016
Runtime: 1hr 36 mins

The story of the amazing forced landing of US Airways flight 1549 onto the Hudson River following a bird strike immediately after takeoff. The 'landing' was well reported, so the film focuses more on the subsequent publicity and investigation. The battle between Captain Chesley Sullenberger and the Safety Board to prove accident or pilot error yields a typically strong performance from Tom Hanks under Clint Eastwood's directorship. The film uncovers the fear and self-doubt inside a man who would never accept being defined as a hero.

‘Sully is a beautifully balanced, classily nuanced and hugely engaging film that avoids all the clichéd pitfalls it could have slipped into.’ Simon Thompson, IGN

Denial recounts the true story of Deborah Lipstadt's legal battle for historical truth against the notorious Holocaust denier David Irving, who accused her of libel when she denounced him in her acclaimed book, Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory. With the burden of proof in English defamation law falling upon the defendant, it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred. With a screenplay by David Hare this is gripping courtroom drama at its best.

‘One of the most spectacular aspects of the film are the court hearings as they are simultaneously almost unbelievable and yet lifted, verbatim, from the records.’ Lochley Shaddock, Filmlink

Fletton House

Director: Andrea Luka Zimmerman
Release: 2015
Runtime: 1hr 23 min

A deeply moving portrait of a community in East London living on the Haggerston Estate - built on land that was originally part of the estate of the astronomer Edmond Halley, later demolished and recreated in the 1930s as a model housing estate for London’s working class. The estate’s constituent blocks are named after characters from Samuel Richardson’s Clarissa. The film mixes lyricism, literary recreation, gritty realism and music. It is poignant and real, deeply felt and important... a paean to survival, dignity, solidarity, a paean to a community in the face of erosion.

‘An enthralling and uplifting celebration of the resilience of humanity in flux.’ Andrew Kottin

A comedy about best friends, Conor and Jock, two inner-city teenagers from Cork.

The boys steal two bikes and go on a road trip hoping to find the missing bale which they can sell so as to escape their troubled home lives...But Sergeant Healy is in hot pursuit.

‘It's the most perceptive comic portrait of the adolescent male since The Inbetweeners, but with a naturalism that is unexpectedly disarming.’ Wendy Ide, Observer

THE OTHER SIDE OF HOPE (12A)

Sunday, 19th November, 7.45pm

STAHL THEATRE
West St, Oundle, PE8 4EJ

Cast: Sherwan Haji, Sakari Kuosmanen
Director: Aki Kaurismäki
Release: 2017
Runtime: 1hr 38 min
In Finnish, English, Arabic, Swedish (Subtitled)

If you want escapism far away from La La Land, Kaurismäki, the Finnish master of melancholy wit is your man. His world is a place where jobs are a barely tolerated necessity, everybody smokes and drinks, 1950s/60s vintage clothes, cars, bars and uniforms are preferred; things go off at half-cock and are met with deadpan responses and biting remarks. It’s an enjoyable place to escape to, even though you have to be tough to inhabit it. Night-time mood lighting out of Edward Hopper paintings predominates and, just as in old westerns, there are men and women of honour and generosity, and some who have none.

‘[Kaurismäki's] new feature...is a typically deadpan and brilliantly observed comic study of the plight of a fictional asylum seeker in Finland’. Geoffrey Macnab,The Independent

Divorced and retired, Tony leads a reclusive and relatively quiet life. One day he learns that his university girlfriend, Veronica, has acquired a diary kept by his best friend, who dated her after she and Tony split up. Tony’s quest to recover the diary forces him to revisit his past. As he digs deeper, it starts to come back: first love, broken heart, deceit, regrets, guilt... Can Tony bear to face the truth and take responsibility for the devastating consequences of actions he took so long ago? ‘Jim Broadbent gives a droll, well-judged performance in this adaptation of Julian Barnes’ Booker-winner, about a blast from the past of a grumpy divorcee.’ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

1940, London, the Blitz. With the country’s morale at stake, Catrin, an untried screenwriter is hired to provide "a woman’s touch" and, with a makeshift cast and crew, work under fire to make a film to lift the nation’s flagging spirits. Along with fellow screenwriter Buckley, and eccentric former matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard, the trio set out to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. Based on Lissa Evans’ novel, Their Finest Hour and a Half, this is a witty, romantic and moving portrayal of a young woman finding her way, and voice, in the mayhem of war and the movies!

‘Gemma Arterton shines in a big hearted and witty drama about the making of a Second World War propaganda film.’ Wendy Ide, The Guardian
