1917 (15)

“★★★★★ – Ambitious and unshakeable storytelling” – Guardian. Sam Mendes, the Oscar-winning director of Skyfall and American Beauty, brings his singular vision to this World War I epic.

“★★★★★ – Ambitious and unshakeable storytelling” – Peter Bradshaw, Guardian


Sam Mendes, the Oscar-winning director of Skyfall and American Beauty, brings his singular vision to this World War I epic.


At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (Pride’s George MacKay) and Blake (Game of Thrones’ Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers – Blake’s own brother among them.


Filmed in an extraordinary single take by master cinematographer Roger Deakins, 1917 stands alongside Saving Private Ryan and Dunkirk as a modern war film masterpiece and an enthralling story of empathy, heroism and the horrors of war.

The Brothers Karamazov (12A)

World renowned choreographer Boris Eifman brings to the stage his remarkable vision of Dostoevsky’s novel The Brothers Karamazov, performed by St Petersburg's Eifman Ballet.

Fyodor Dostoevsky’s novel The Brothers Karamazov is the epitome of his creative work – the acme of the philosophic investigation carried out by this colossal and restless mind throughout his life.


World renowned choreographer Boris Eifman offers a remarkable vision of the core ideas within the novel, expanding upon them through body language as a way of exploring the origins of the moral devastation of the Karamazovs


Eifman creates through choreographic art an equivalent of what Dostoyevsky investigated so masterfully in his book – the excruciating burden of destructive passions and evil heredity.


Boris Eifman is considered to be one of the leading choreographers in the world. After working for 10 years at the Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet, he formed his own ballet ensemble in 1977, interweaving classical ballet, modern dance and ecstatic impulses to create a completely different form of choreography where self-expression becomes the subject and in which there is drama, philosophy, characters and a central idea.

The defining feature of Eifman’s work is that almost all of his performances have a plot and, often, a literary source. In this way he can plunge into a realm that is familiar, all the while discovering and revealing the unexplored. His unique lexicon and conceptual, authorial interpretations are a breakthrough into that fantastic dimension where the boundlessness of inner worlds comes to life.

Outside the City (PG)

Back due to demand, this beautifully filmed documentary follows the monks of Leicestershire's Mount St Bernard Abbey as they attempt to open the first Trappist brewery in the UK.


Back due to demand after a sensational run in December, Nick Hamer's film follows the monks of Leicestershire's Mount St Bernard Abbey - a community of 25 men, half of them over 80 years old. This beautifully filmed documentary follows the monks as they move from dairy farming to brewing and attempt to open the first Trappist brewery in the UK.


The stakes are high – if their historic counter-cultural lifestyle is to survive, the venture must succeed. Meanwhile as the monks reflect on spirituality, ageing and the approaching end of life, the number of burials in the Abbey's graveyard continues to rise.


Director Nick Hamer spent a year with the monks, gaining privileged access to document their hidden lives. They have turned their backs on the material, consumer society, to focus instead on contemplative spirituality, and to maintain an age-old religious tradition.

Tintoretto: A Rebel in Venice (12A)

Tintoretto: A Rebel in Venice tells the story of the painter Jacopo Robusti (1519-1594), the only great Renaissance artist to never leave Venice.


Featuring and narrated by Helena Bonham Carter, Tintoretto: A Rebel in Venice tells the story of the painter Jacopo Robusti (1519-1594), the only great Renaissance artist to never leave Venice (even during the plague years) who earned the moniker of Tintoretto, or the Little Dyer, thanks to his father’s profession.


Through the life of the painter, the film outlines the socio-political context of 16th century Venice. It was a culturally flourishing century, during which other giants of the art world also played a leading role, such as Titian and Veronese, Tintoretto’s eternal rivals. At that time, the Serenissima Republic was confirming its maritime supremacy by becoming one of the most powerful merchant ports in Europe and facing the tragic plague of 1575-77, which wiped out most of the population, and left an indelible mark in the Lagoon.


The documentary also closely observes the thorough and complex analysis carried out by an Italian team of experts in order to restore two of Tintoretto's masterpieces: "Mary in meditation" (1582 - 1583) and "Mary reading" (1582 – 1583). The two pieces have been restored in time to be exhibited as part of the monographic exhibition on Tintoretto taking place at the National Gallery of Art in Washington to celebrate the 500th of his birth in 2019.


Tintoretto is in almost every museum in the world and yet it is only in Venice that one can understand and love him. Tintoretto is the true mirror of Venice. In life and work, he reflects the spirit of the lagoon city. He’s a one of a kind genius: open-minded, restless, brave and with a strong love for freedom - unstable and elusive, just like Venice.

In Search of Chopin (12A)

Phil Grabsky's funny, heart-warming and inspirational film delves deep into the life and work of this much-loved composer, with contributions from some of the world's leading classical musicians.

Chopin’s grave in Paris remains a place of pilgrimage and his music continues to sell out concert halls worldwide.


But who exactly was this man who was terrified of public performance, who fled his Polish homeland for Paris never to return, took up with the most notorious transvestite in France, rarely gave public performances and, despite a life of ill-health, wrote some of the deepest and most powerful music ever written? How exactly did a young Polish boy rise to such heady heights?


For four years, award-winning filmmaker Phil Grabsky travelled the globe in his quest to lay bare the life and music of Chopin. Some of the world’s best musicians provide the music, including Leif Ove Andsnes, Daniel Barenboim, Ronald Brautigam and the Orchestra of the 18th Century.


Funny, heart-breaking, inspirational – this film has been called the first to really illustrate the true nature of this remarkable and still widely-loved composer.

Prado: Collection of Wonders (12A)

A cinematic journey through the rooms, stories and emotions of one of the most visited museums in the world; narrated by and featuring Academy Award-winner, Jeremy Irons.


The Prado Museum: A Collection of Wonders, narrated by and featuring Academy Award-winner, Jeremy Irons, is a cinematic journey through the rooms, stories and emotions of one of the most visited museums in the world. Its wealth of over 8000 art treasures is a spell-binding experience drawing almost 3 million visitors to Madrid every year.


The film interweaves the art narrative with a study of the architecture and an analysis of valuable archival materials and includes interviews with various experts from the Prado Museum. It takes a close look at not only the magnificent works of art but also the landscape, the palaces and buildings that saw the birth and development of these extraordinary collections.


The life of the Prado collection began with the birth of Spain as a nation and the marriage between Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabel of Castile; a union that marked the start of the great Spanish Empire. Yet, over the centuries, painting had been a universal language that knew no boundaries.


If there is one museum where it is clear that painting was not affected by nationalism then that museum must surely be the Prado, with its eclectic and multifaceted collections demonstrating that art has no passports limiting its circulation, that rather it is a universal means to understand and convey the thoughts and feelings of human beings

I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality.
