Green Book

with Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali

Winner of Oscars for best film, best supporting actor, and best original screenplay, Green Book is based on the real-life friendship between Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a blue-collar Italian American, and Dr Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali), the cultured African American concert pianist whom Tony is hired to drive on a tour of the still segregated deep south.

"…a superb performance from Ali. There is a patrician quality to his bearing as he sits, cashmere-wrapped and aloof, in the back of the car, wearied by the empty calories of Tony’s chatter. It’s a stark contrast to his public face, an automatic, unfelt smile tacked on to disarm the southern racists who view him as a novelty act rather than a world-class musician…Ali beautifully captures the complexity of the man…" Wendy Ide, The Observer

The Favourite

with Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz

The amazing film which brought an Oscar for best actress to Olivia Colman.

"A trio of pitch-perfect performances from Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone drive Yorgos Lanthimos’s spiky period drama – a tragicomic tale of personal and political jealousy and intrigue in 18th-century England. Set in the court of Queen Anne (the last of the Stuart monarchs), it balances foreign wars with home-grown tussles in often uproarious and occasionally alarming fashion." Mark Kermode, The Observer

"Colman is simply superb as the miscast monarch, combining childish pathos with queenie cantankerousness, and a palpable sense of pain." Mark Kermode, The Observer

Can you ever forgive me?

with Melissa McCarthy and Richard E Grant

Melissa McCarthy stars as Lee Israel, the best-selling celebrity biographer (and cat lover) who made her living in the 1970's and 80's profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estée Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. When Lee found herself unable to get published because she had fallen out of step with the marketplace, she turned her art form to deception, abetted by her loyal friend Jack (Richard E. Grant).

"It is a brilliant performance by McCarthy, and Richard E Grant gives us something bleakly hilarious as her lounge-lizard drinking buddy and co-dependent loser, Jack Hock." Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

Mary Queen of Scots

with Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan

"A full-blooded tale of personal and political rivalries told with with, flair and passion." Mark Kermode, The Observer

The film explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart (Ronan). Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry and returns to Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I (Robbie). Each young Queen beholds her 'sister' in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth's sovereignty. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones - and change the course of history.
