Buena Vista Social Club

Buena Vista Social Club
  • 1999
  • Cuba
  • 1h 44min
  • U
  • Directed by: Wim Wenders
  • Written by: Wim Wenders
  • Cast: Ry Cooder, Ibrahim Ferrer, Rubén González

Cuba looks a little like the land that time forgot. A theme Wenders brings out both in the over-exposed images of Havana and also in the musical brilliance of these octogenarian and nonagenarian musicians who have for so long been neglected. And it's ironically thanks to an American, Wenders' regular musical collaborator Ry Cooder, that their careers have been resurrected.

Clueless

Clueless
  • 1995

  • Directed by: Amy Heckerling
  • Written by: Amy Heckerling
  • Cast: Alicia Silverstone, Stacey Dash, Brittany Murphy, Paul Rudd, Donald Faison, Breckin Meyer, Dan Hedaya

Beautiful, fashionable and streetsmart Beverley Hills schoolgirl Cher (Silverstone) is spoilt to distraction, but when teenage romance floors her, she's as clueless as anyone. This has all the ingredients for an unashamedly brainless smash teen comedy – including a new line in kooky dialect – but unfortunately it doesn't do anything that *3Heathers2 didn't do better.

My Old School

My Old School
  • 2022
  • UK
  • 1h 44min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jono McLeod
  • Cast: Alan Cumming, Clare Grogan, Lulu

In 1993, 16-year-old Brandon Lee enrolled at Bearsden Academy, a secondary school in a well-to-do suburb of Glasgow, Scotland. What followed over the next two years would become the stuff of legend. Brandon had been privately tutored in Canada while he accompanied his mother, an opera diva, on tour before her tragic death. The preternaturally bright student surprised teachers by blazing toward his goal of entering medical school, displaying a wealth of knowledge beyond his years. Brandon found friends despite his initial awkwardness. He took bullied students under his wing, introduced classmates to seminal retro bands, and even starred in the school's production of South Pacific. But then his unbelievable secret was revealed. Filmmaker Jono McLeod returns to his old school for a nostalgic look at the strange but true story of his former classmate, Brandon Lee. Utilizing playful, period-specific animation, a pitch-perfect soundtrack, the memories of students and teachers, and the talents of Alan Cumming to bring the tale to life, My Old School offers more than one surprise along the way.

National Theatre Live: Prima Facie

National Theatre Live: Prima Facie
  • 2022
  • UK
  • Directed by: Justin Martin
  • Cast: Jodie Comer

Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) makes her West End debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play.

Tessa is a young, brilliant barrister. She has worked her way up from working class origins to be at the top of her game; defending; cross examining and winning. An unexpected event forces her to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morals diverge. Prima Facie takes us to the heart of where emotion and experience collide with the rules of the game.

Justin Martin directs this solo tour de force, recorded live at the intimate Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End.
