My Old Lady is a touching romantic drama that makes wonderful use of its Parisian setting and star-led cast. Mathias Gold is a down-on-his-luck New Yorker who inherits a large and potentially lucrative apartment in Paris from his estranged father. Looking to sell the flat, Mathias heads to Paris but finds it inhabited by long-term tenant Mathilde and her overly-protective daughter Chloé.

Set Fire to the Stars

15
  • Andy Goddard
  • In English
  • 97 mins

Set Fire to the Stars is a playful, humorous and moving snapshot of one of the world’s most beloved poets. In 1950 John Brinnan invited the highly acclaimed and infamous Welshman, Dylan Thomas, to New York for a series of poetry readings, touring the most prestigious college campuses of the United States. Having ignored persistent rumours of Thomas’ frivolities back home, Brinnan finds his hands full when the poet arrives on US shores. Mesmerising and moving when reciting his masterpieces on stage, Thomas is flamboyant and direct when it comes to charming the pants off his admiring female fanbase. Desperate to get watchful university chaplains off his back, Brinnan takes Thomas to his family retreat in the woods of Connecticut. But even in the middle of nowhere, the resourceful and cantankerous Thomas finds an audience for his art, passion, love and aggression.

The Imitation Game

12A
  • Morten Tyldum
  • In English
  • 115 mins

Based on the real life story of legendary cryptanalyst Alan Turing, The Imitation Game portrays the nail-biting race against time faced by Turing and his brilliant team of code-breakers at Britain’s top-secret Government Code and Cypher School at Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. The motley group of scholars, linguists, chess champions and intelligence officers had a powerful ally in Prime Minister Winston Churchill, who authorised the provision of any resource they required. The film spans the key periods of Turing’s life, from his unhappy teenage years at boarding school and the triumph of his secret wartime work on the revolutionary electro-mechanical ‘Bombe’, which was capable of breaking 3,000 Enigma-generated naval codes a day, to the tragedy of his post-war decline following his conviction for a now-outdated criminal offence.

Jacques Tati’s gloriously choreographed and almost wordless comedies reached their peak with Playtime, which follows American tourist Barbara and befuddled Frenchman Monsieur Hulot, as they attempt to negotiate a bafflingly modern Paris – with highly comic results.
