A young girl with ice cubes for teeth begins a mysterious journey, in director Lucile Hadžihalilović's hallucinatory, haunting, and beautiful film. In a sombre European apartment in the middle of the last century, Albert (Paul Hilton) cares for a 10-year-old girl. His main duty is to change her ice dentures several times a day, tending to a metal appliance fitted to her face. A voice telephones regularly to ask about the girl’s well-being. One day, the voice tells the man to prepare the girl to leave the apartment and travel to a new destination. A journey begins. Like a chilling, unforgettable fever dream, Earwig affirms Hadžihalilović’s talent for compelling, original cinema

Eric Ravilious: Drawn To War

Eric Ravilious: Drawn To War
  • 2022
  • UK
  • 1h 28min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Margy Kinmonth
  • Written by: Margy Kinmonth
  • Cast: Tamsin Grieg

ERIC RAVILIOUS: DRAWN TO WAR is a true story. Eric Ravilious is as compelling and enigmatic as his art. Set against the dramatic wartime locations that inspire him, Margy Kinmonth’s film brings to life this brilliant but still grossly undervalued British artist. Caught in the crossfire of war 80 years ago, Ravilious’s legacy largely sank without trace, until now. Made with the blessing of the Ravilious Estate, this first full length feature documentary about Ravilious unfolds in his own words, through previously unseen private correspondence and rare archive film. Shot entirely on location in the UK, Portugal and Ireland, the film features Ai Weiwei, Alan Bennett, Grayson Perry, Robert Macfarlane with Freddie Fox, Tamsin Greig and many more.

  • Directed by: Justin Kurzel
  • Cast: Caleb Landry Jones, Judy Davis, Essie Davis, Anthony LaPaglia

Nitram (Caleb Landry-Jones) lives with his mother (Judy Davis) and father (Anthony LaPaglia) in suburban Australia in the Mid 1990s. He lives a life of isolation and frustration at never being able to fit in. That is until he unexpectedly finds a close friend in a reclusive heiress, Helen (Essie Davis). However when that friendship meets its tragic end, and Nitram’s loneliness and anger grow, he begins a slow descent that leads to disaster. From acclaimed director Justin Kurzel (Macbeth, True History of the Kelly Gang) and featuring outstanding performances from the entire cast, this is a truly unmissable piece of cinema.
