Boyhood

15
  • Richard Linklater
  • In English, Spanish
  • 166 mins

Richard Linklater worked with his cast on and off over a staggering 12-year period to produce this highly anticipated coming-of-age drama. The film tracks Mason throughout his formative years, from his life as a six year-old-boy to adulthood, through a familiar whirl of family moves, controversies, faltering marriages, re-marriages, new schools, first loves, lost loves, good times, scary times and a constantly unfolding mix of heartbreak and wonder. Boyhood builds into a deeply personal experience of the incidents that shape us as we grow up and the ever-changing nature of our lives.

Art Party

12A
  • Bob and Roberta Smith, Tim Newton
  • In English
  • 80 mins

In 2011, artist Patrick Brill (known creatively as Bob and Roberta Smith) made waves in the art world with Letter to Michael Gove, an oversized painted-word response to the Education Secretary’s proposed eradication of art from the British school syllabus. In his feature film Art Party, Smith builds on his 2011 protest with a mix of performance, interviews and imagined scenes, en route to the 2013 Art Party Conference, where he and other speakers championed the importance of art and its place in the education system. Part documentary, part road movie and part political fantasy, Art Party ultimately asks “how do you tell one man he’s got it wrong?”
