King Richard (PG)

★★★★ – Empire. Will Smith is on award-worthy form in this fun, inspirational and uplifting biopic of Richard Williams, the father of tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams.


 “★★★★ – A towering turn from Will Smith… one of the year’s great screen performances” – The Times


"Will Smith smashes it as Venus and Serena Williams’s headstrong father" – Telegraph


★★★★ – Empire


★★★★ – Metro


Will Smith is on award-worthy form in this fun, inspirational and uplifting biopic of Richard Williams, the father of tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams.


A tough father who believes passionately in his daughters’ ability, Richard is determined to take them from the broken-down abandoned tennis courts of Compton to the highest level of world tennis. Battling snobbery and racism from the overwhelmingly white tennis community, Richard pushes forward with his unconventional methods, insisting the girls train rain or shine in order to achieve their potential.


Expect Smith to feature prominently in the awards conversation next year: the supporting cast sees Aunjanue Ellis (If Beale Street Could Talk) as the girl’s level-headed mother and Jon Bernthal (Ford vs Ferrari) as their coach dealing with Richard’s exasperating demands, while Saniyya Sidney and Demi Singleton deliver winning, utterly charming performances as Venus and Serena.

The Hand of God (15)

★★★★ – Telegraph. Paolo Sorrentino's (The Great Beauty, Il Divo) deeply personal, autobiographical coming-of-age story is set in 1980s Naples, and features long-time collaborator Toni Servillo (The Consequences of Love).


"Paolo Sorrentino's most personal movie is also his best" – IndieWire


"★★★★ – A hauntingly personal memoir of grief, growing up and maverick footballers. Golazzo!" – Time Out


"★★★★ – a wistful, winking cinematic scrapbook of growing up in 1980s Naples" – Telegraph

   

Sorrentino’s latest film is a deeply personal, autobiographical coming-of-age story set in the hometown of his youth – 1980s Naples.


Young Fabietto (Filippo Scotti) experiences the unexpected arrival of football legend Diego Maradona and an equally unexpected tragedy.


The Hand of God presents life as a series of miracles and tragedies, with very little cause and effect; and with Sorrentino – who is at the top of his game – at the helm, the film simply transcends.

The Danish Collector: Delacroix to Gauguin (PG)

Exhibition on Screen tells the fascinating story of a visionary Danish collector of Impressionist art, with exclusive access to a sell-out exhibition at London’s Royal Academy, bringing an extraordinary collection to the big-screen in glorious high-definition.


For many years no-one was interested in the art of the Impressionists. Artists like Monet, Degas and Renoir were vilified, attacked, and left penniless as a result.


Then, something remarkable happened. A new breed of collectors emerged and, before long, they were battling to acquire any work by these new, radical artists that they could find. Amongst them was the visionary Danish businessman Wilhelm Hansen. It was an extraordinary moment in art history; full of drama, intrigue and subterfuge.


Some collectors we may recognise and some we may not, but Hansen amassed a remarkable collection housed at his summer home, Ordrupgaard, on the outskirts of Copenhagen. Exhibition on Screen tells his fascinating story and, with exclusive access to a sell-out exhibition at London’s Royal Academy, brings the extraordinary collection to the big-screen in glorious high-definition.


From Hansen’s beautiful house and gardens at Ordrupgaard to the streets of bohemian Paris, this film takes you on a journey to discover some of the best examples of 19th-century French art ever collected.

Facing his future in retirement, “sitting in deck chairs and eating lemon drizzle cake”, 65 year-old piano tuner Desmond O’Keeffe decides instead to take on the most challenging delivery of his four decade long career: transporting a 100 year-old Broadwood and Sons upright piano from bustling London to a primary school in the remote heart of the Indian Himalayas.


Aided by local Sherpas, the team’s convictions are tested as they cross sheer mountain passes of breathtaking beauty, coming in direct contact with a different way of living - a world on a brink of change, filled with equal measure serenity and hardship.


If successful, the expedition will be the highest piano delivery in history, but more importantly, it could become the ultimate gesture of music’s universal power: bridging cultures, inspiring strength and bringing joy.

Getting Away With Murder(s) + Q&A (15)

★★★★★ – Guardian. David Wilkinson's new documentary asks the question - after the holocaust, why were so many of the people involved allowed to get away with their crimes?


"★★★★★ – an epic documentary investigation from director David Nicholas Wilkinson... a sombre, valuable film" – Guardian


"★★★★ – an understandably gruelling yet thought-provoking film" – Total Film


"★★★★ – A strikingly ambitious work" – Film Review Daily


★★★★ – The Times


Director David Wilkinson joins us for a Q&A after the film hosted by Dr Svenja Bethke of the Stanley Burton Centre for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at University of Leicester.


During the Holocaust almost 1 million people in 22 countries carried out the unprovoked murder of 11 million innocent men, women and children. 99% of those responsible were never prosecuted; most were never even questioned.


The Allies knew what their crime was, and where these people could be found - Germany, Austria, Italy, the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia, and numerous countries in South America. However, after the late 1940s, almost nothing was done.


Released to coincide with the 75th Anniversary of the sentencing of the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg.


This film picks up where the IMT trial left off and director David Wilkinson asks the question - why were so many people actively permitted to get away with their crimes?  Wilkinson’s journey takes him all over the UK, to Ireland, the USA, the killing fields of Lithuania, Latvia and the Czech Republic, to the infamous death camp Auschwitz - Birkenau in Poland, to Austria, France and, of course, Germany.

On a glorious Greek evening, screen legend Bill Murray and world renowned cellist Jan Vogler rock the Acropolis with a timeless mix of music, literature and poetry. Captured on film by director Andrew Muscato, Murray and Vogler are joined by the dazzling Mira Wang (violin) and dynamic Vanessa Perez (piano).


The international quartet enchants the Athenian audience from the 2,000 year old stage of the Odeon of Herodes Atticus with musical reflections on love, hope and heartbreak. Spanning from Bach to Van Morrison, Whitman to West Side Story, the wildly entertaining, humorous and deeply touching program is infused with the one-of-a-kind charm of Bill Murray.


The ‘New Worlds’ project emerged from a chance encounter between Murray and Vogler, who met on a flight from Berlin to New York in 2013, with Murray amused that Vogler’s cello was taking up the window seat. The pair forged a strong friendship founded upon a deep curiosity for each other’s artistic worlds.
