FLETTON HOUSE

Narrator: Willem Dafoe

Description: Robert MacFarlane

Director: Jennifer Peedom

Release: 2017

Runtime: 1hr 13min

Collated from more than 2,000 hours of footage shot in 15 countries, Mountain is a 70-minute white-knuckle ride: a safari into the sublime, a vertiginous voyage to the top of the world providing astonishing vision of mountaineers, ice climbers, free soloists, snowboarders, wingsuiters and parachuting mountain bikers. With accompanying music from the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the film’s adrenaline-charged footage reveals mountains as places of stately splendour and perilous exposure, including Alex Honnold’s heart stopping free climbing and Danny Macaskill’s stunning bike ride over the Cuillin Ridge on Skye. Director Peedom seeks succesfully to convey the allure of mountains, and the increasing pressures that they face.

DUNKIRK (12A)

Sunday, 28th January, 7.30pm

THE STAHL THEATRE
West St, PE8 4EJ, Oundle

Cast: Mark Rylance, Fionn Whitehead, Kenneth Branagh

Director: Christopher Nolan

Release: 2017

Runtime: 1hr 46min

In May 1940 Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. By the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers had been safely evacuated.

Writer/director Nolan has crafted a film that will arguably become the definitive cinematic depiction of this remarkable chapter of history. With its thunderous sound design, Dunkirk assaults the senses, yet minimal dialogue means that large sections of the film play like classic silent cinema.

‘It’s an utterly immersive experience that fulfils Nolan’s promise of creating "virtual reality without the goggles"...see it you must.’Mark Kermode, Observer

Cast: Cillian Murphy, Timothy Spall, Kristin Scott Thomas

Director: Sally Potter

Release: 2017

Runtime: 1hr 11min

Shot in black-and-white, there is a steady stream of great laughs in Sally Potter’s state-of-the-nation comedy, set at a middle-class London dinner party given to celebrate the appointment of Janet (Scott Thomas) as Shadow Health Minister. Janet’s husband (Spall) also has dramatic (medical) news to share, and as the sophisticated evening starts to unravel, a night that began with champagne turns to arguments and a pointed gun.

‘...plays out in real time with elegance and dispatch, cantering up to a cheeky punch line twist which leaves you laughing over the final credits.’ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

FLETTON HOUSE
Fletton Way, Glapthorn Rd, Oundle, PE8 4JA

Director: Sean McAllister

Release: 2015

Runtime: 1hr 16min

Awarded the Grand Jury Prize at Sheffield Doc/Fest, this searing film is an intimate portrait of love and the loss of a homeland. Amar meets Raghda in a Syrian prison cell, where they communicate through a pinhole in the wall and fall in love. This film helps us to understand why people are literally dying for change in the Arab world. When the pair achieve political asylum in the French town of Albi, their travails are not over, as the separation from Syria leads to increasing domestic dissonance and Raghda’s mental universe unravels.

This film should be seen in conjunction with Ai Wei Wei’s all-encompassing tragedy of the global refugee crisis, Human Flow, to be shown at St Peter’s Church, Oundle on the following Saturday, 24th February.

THE STAHL THEATRE
West St, Oundle, PE8 4EJ

Director: Claude Barras

Cast: Gaspard Schlatter, Sixtine Murat, Paulin Jaccoud

Release: 2016

Runtime 1hr 6min

This multi-award winning, stop-motion animation gained international critical acclaim and narrowly missed out on the 2017 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. A gentle, tender film, it tells the story of a 9-year-old boy (Courgette) who is removed from his unhappy home life and taken to an orphanage. At first he struggles to find his place in the strange and at times hostile environment, but as friendships develop with other children they come to terms with the unkind cards they have been dealt and their new home becomes a place of shared experience, refuge and freedom.

‘Think of ‘My Life as a Courgette’ as less of a children’s film than a film about childhood which children can watch, and you’ll have some idea of the quietly extraordinary tone it manages to strike.’ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph

Directors: David McIlvride, Roger Williams

Release: 2017

Runtime: 1hr 35mins

RiverBlue follows international conservationist, Mark Angelo, and spans the globe to infiltrate one of the world’s most polluting industries - fashion. Through harsh chemical manufacturing processes and toxic chemical waste, one of the world’s favourite, iconic products - denim - has destroyed rivers and changed the lives of people who count on these waterways for their survival.

Narrated by clean-water supporter Jason Priestley, this ground-breaking documentary shines light on the damage to the world’s rivers and demands significant changes from the textile industry, yet also suggests solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future.

Release: 2017

Runtime: 1hr 51mins

Adapted from the book by Shrabani Basu. Queen Victoria (Dench), is old, bored and constrained by convention. When Abdul Karim (Fazal) travels to London from India to deliver a ceremonial coin as part of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee celebrations, he quickly finds favour with her and is made her personal footman. Despite the reservations of Victoria's closest advisers, the pair go on to form a strong bond, with Abdul rising through the ranks and becoming one of the Queen's most trusted allies. As their friendship grows, Victoria learns to see the world through new eyes and begins to approach life with renewed vigour.

Release: 2017

Runtime 1hr 57mins

Breathe is the inspiring true story of Robin Cavendish (Garfield), who is confined to bed and given only months to live after contracting polio at the age of 28. With help from his wife Diana (Foy), her twin brothers and the groundbreaking ideas of inventor Teddy Hall, Cavendish emerges from the hospital ward in a Heath Robinson style contraption, and devotes the rest of his life to helping fellow patients and the disabled.

‘Andy Serkis’s directorial debut...is so full of laughter that one might easily forget its sombre subject matter. Part exuberant love story, part great escape adventure, this is an old-fashioned tale of triumph over adversity.’ Mark Kermode, The Guardian

Director: Kirsten Johnson

Release: 2017

Runtime: 1hr 43min

A boxing match in Brooklyn; the daily routine of a Nigerian midwife; an intimate family moment: these are just a few of the scenes woven into the award winning Cameraperson, a tapestry of footage that is the result of the twenty-five-year career of documentary cinematographer Kirsten Johnson. Through a series of episodic juxtapositions and extraordinary camera work, Johnson looks at the tension between objectivity and the intervention of the camera. It is a film that combines documentary, autobiography and ethical inquiry, thus providing a moving glimpse into one film-maker’s personal journey.

GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN (PG)

Thursday, 3rd May, 7.30pm

THE STAHL THEATRE
West St., Oundle, PE8 4EJ

Cast: Domhnall Gleeson, Margot Robbie, Kelly Macdonald

Director: Simon Curtis

Release: 2017

Runtime: 1hr 45min

This is the story of before and after Winnie the Pooh. It shows how the books came to be written, what happened next, and the consequences for young Billy, the real life Christopher Robin. Domnhall Gleeson plays AA Milne, back home from the trenches in 1916, damaged, and determined to write a book about the war. How that plan turned into the Winnie books is the remarkable subject of this heart warming movie. If you are a fan of the bear then don’t worry, the people behind this movie understand the magic and, somehow, bring it alive on screen.

‘With its bittersweet interweaving of fact and fantasy, youthful innocence and adult trauma, this tale of the creation of a children’s classic could have been called Saving Mr Milne.’ Mark Kermode, The Guardian

FLETTON HOUSE
Fletton Way, Glapthorn Rd, Oundle, PE8 4JA

Director: German Kral

Release: 2015

Runtime: 1hr 25min

Argentinian Tango has become a universal phenomenom over the last hundred years, with its mix of rhythm and sensuality. This film looks at this extraordinary dance through the story of two of its greatest protagonists: Nieves Rego and Juan Carlos Copes, who met as teenagers and danced together for nearly fifty years, until a painful separation tore them apart. In German Kral’s Buena Vista style study, the virtuosos reunite to tell their story to young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, who transform the most beautiful, moving and dramatic moments of Juan and Maria’s lives into incredible tango-choreographies.

‘A documentary that both celebrates and challenges the passions of dance.’ Abbey Bender, Village Voice

Cast: Kenneth Branagh, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe

Director: Kenneth Branagh

Release: 2017

Runtime: 1hr 53min

Arriving in Istanbul for a relaxing holiday, the famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot receives a telegram summoning him back to London. Soon the vigilant detective finds himself on board the luxurious Orient Express, sharing a carriage with an eclectic assortment of first-class travellers and an invisible murderer who walks unnoticed among them. When a sudden massive avalanche blocks the tracks, trapping the passengers on board the train, the gruesome murder of a commuter in his cabin forces Poirot to solve a conundrum where everyone is a suspect. Classic Agatha Christie.

'Branagh clearly has fun with the eccentric nature of the Poirot character, whose gift of insight is a blessing when it comes to solving crimes but a curse in its effects on his daily existence.' Brian Lowry, CNN.com

Director: Paul King

Released: 2017

Run Time: 1hr 43min

This sequel to the big-hearted film debut of the small bear from darkest Peru is a full-on charm offensive of a movie. And Paddington, with his ingrained decency, generosity of spirit and unshakable faith in the value of good manners, cements himself as a slightly sticky beacon of hope for these unsettled times.

Paddington is living happily with the Brown family and is a popular member of the local community, picking up odd jobs to afford a present for his Aunt Lucy's 100th birthday. When the present is stolen, Paddington must retrieve it and unmask the thief.

‘...a deliciously funny Hugh Grant makes the bear’s sequel impossible to resist.’ Tim Robey, The Daily Telegraph
