Lady Bird
Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humour and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mother (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird's father (Tracy Letts) loses his job.

“Lady Bird is an absolute sunrise of a movie, the kind of thing that makes your heart leap and gives you hope…" Jonathan Dean. GQ

“A magical portrait of adolescence.” Simran Hans, Guardian

“It’s a clever, affecting film that’s a total pleasure to watch.” Nick Levine, NME

“…this irresistible romantic mystery.” Robbie Collin, Telegraph

Journey's End
“This new version of RC Sherriff’s classic play about the futility and slaughter of the first world war is powerful, passionate and superbly acted” Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

“Dibb’s version is the finest to date, accentuated by the haunting music of Icelandic cellist Hildur Guónadóttir. Journey's End is a bleak, sobering experience that puts audiences through a wringer. It's also an emotional powerhouse you will not forget." Rolling Stone

“…there’s no rose tinted spectacles here. What the play, and Dibb’s adaptation does so well, is to portray soldiers as ordinary men, sold a dream of glory only to find Hell awaiting them…an uncompromising look at an important period, brought to life by actors at the top of their game.” James Luxford, Metro

The Happy Prince
In a cheap Parisian hotel room Oscar Wilde lies on his death bed and the past floods back, transporting him to other times and places.
Under the microscope of death, he reviews the failed attempt to reconcile with his long suffering wife Constance, the ensuing reprisal of his fatal love affair with Lord Alfred Douglas and the warmth and devotion of Robbie Ross who tried and failed to save him from himself.

“The Happy Prince is a ravishingly sad film.” Deborah Ross, The Spectator

“Directed by and starring Everett, this poignant dramatisation of Wilde’s final years in exile is a powerful parable of passion and redemption.” Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

“Starring, written and directed by Rupert Everett, this bravura achievement charts the final degraded days of Oscar Wilde.” Kevin Maher, The Times
