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.

The Good Boss

The Good Boss
  • 2021
  • Spain
  • 1h 56min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Fernando León de Aranoa
  • Cast: Javier Bardem, Manolo Solo, Almudena Amor, Óscar de la Fuente, Sonia Almarcha, Fernando Albizu, Tarik Rmili, Rafa Castejón, Celso Bugallo

"Javier Bardem excels as a corporate boss, who will tell you he’s your best friend just as he’s stabbing you in the back, in this ruthlessly funny corporate satire.

Blanco (Bardem) initially appears to be a kindly, if bland, owner of a factory. ‘Don’t treat me like a boss’, he gestures to his employees. But behind the genial façade lies a selfish profiteer. Blanco is all smiles for a visiting journalist and is intent on keeping morale up so he can win a government award. But when he makes a long-serving employee redundant and takes advantage of his latest intern, cracks start to appear in the industrialist’s world.

Fernando León de Aranoa previously worked with Bardem on the Escobar biopic Loving Pablo and the gentle drama Mondays in the Sun. With The Good Boss, they change gear dramatically, skillfully balancing humour with a merciless critique of greed. Blanco is emblematic of a wider malaise in society, of corporate executives enjoying the riches of others’ labour and abusing their position of power. And Bardem revels in the split nature of his character. He conveys Blanco’s blandness with a watchability only a bona fide film star can bring to such a role while detailing the character’s mendacity in the way he treats everyone around him. Bardem has previously portrayed a Bond villain and other psychopaths to winning effect and, thanks to his performance, Blanco sits comfortably amongst them."

  • 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.
