IN BETWEEN Israel/France 2015 (15)

IN BETWEEN  Israel/France 2015

PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA

at Alderman Peel High School,

Market Lane, Wells NR23 1RB


Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles


Directed by Maysaloun Hamoud and starring Shaden Kanboura,Sana Jammelieh,Mouna Hawa Riyad Sliman & Mahmoud Shalaby.

Told through the wry, amusing exploits of three young women,this stunning award-winning debut by young Palestinian writer/director Maysaloun Hamoud peels back the layers of an Arab-Israeli underground culture.

In Between is beautifully crafted, compelling and skilfully understated.The cast (about 90% of whom are in front of the camera for the first time) are so good. It depicts female relationships in the modern era  as it follows lawyer Laila (Mouna Hawa), aspiring DJ Salma (Sana Jammaliah) and student and wife-to-be Nour (Shaden Kanboura) as their lives begin to take shape. Each woman knows what she wants away from the constraints of traditional society,but as they pursue their paths, do they have the freedom from their friends, families and even each other, to succeed?

After being criticised for taking Israeli state funding, the director found herself the subject of death threats and fatwas from fundamentalists,accused of disparaging or corrupting Muslim women. Elsewhere,In Between has been rapturously received,with Hamoud receiving the Women in Motion Young Talents award at this year’s Cannes festival.

The Classic Film 

Directed by  Orson Welles and starring Orson Welles, Joseph Cotton, Dorothy Comingore, Agnes Moorehead & Everett Sloane

Given extraordinary freedom by Hollywood studio RKO for his debut film, boy wonder Orson Welles created a modern masterpiece that is regularly voted among the best films ever made.  It presents a fictionalised version of one of America’s most powerful men in the 1930’s and 40’s – press baron William Randolph Hearst – in the shape of Charles Foster Kane (played by Welles himself), who decides to start a newspaper with his inherited money.  As its fortunes rise and rise and Kane becomes more and more powerful at the head of his newspaper empire, the corrupting effects of his power start to emerge.  From the opening shots of his mansion Xanadu at night the film is packed with visual imagination and invention;  shot in crisp black and white, it was way ahead of its time and still speaks to us today about power and how it can corrupt.

THE DEATH OF STALIN  UK  2017

PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA

at Alderman Peel High School,

Market Lane, Wells NR23 1RB


Directed by Armando Ianucci and starring Simon Russell Beale, Steve Buscemi, Michael Palin, Andrea Riseborough, Jeffrey Tambor, Jason Issacs & Rupert Friend.

The internal political landscape of 1950’s Soviet Russia takes on darkly comic form in this new film by Oscar-nominated writer/director Armando Iunacci (The Thick of It, In the Loop).  In the days following Stalin’s collapse, the machinations of senior party officials and courtiers kick into overdrive. Some want positive change in the Soviet Union, others have more sinister motives. But behind all the collusion, back stabbing and strong-arming, the jostling ministers have one thing in common – they’re just desperate to stay alive. This film is based on a graphic novel by French writer Fabian Nury. Iaunacci’s script is loaded with acerbic, politically incorrect conversation, which is delivered by some of the finest and funniest character actors.

FILM STARS DON’T DIE IN LIVERPOOL UK/USA (15)

FILM STARS DON’T DIE IN LIVERPOOL UK/USA

PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA

at Alderman Peel High School,

Market Lane, Wells NR23 1RB


Directed by  Paul McGuigan and starring  Jamie Bell, Anette Bening, Vanessa Redgrave, Julie Walters   Kenneth Cranham, Stephen Graham & Frances Barber.

Based on actor Peter Turner’s poignant memoir, Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool follows the intense romance kindled by Hollywood legend Gloria Grahame and the much younger Turner in the late 1970s. Looking for stage work in Britain to revive her career, Grahame (Bening) meets Turner (Bell) in a London boarding house, sparking a vibrant, whirlwind affair. A few years later, after their courtship has ended, Grahame collapses in a Lancaster hotel. Her health failing, she reaches out to her former flame. When she moves to Liverpool to stay with Turner and his family, the pair’s memories of what they once had come flooding back. Bell and Bening excel as the star-crossed lovers, vividly capturing their physical and emotional connection. We even get to see some dancing,reminding us of Bell’s younger performance  as Billy Elliot.  For Bening in particular, this might just be the performance that makes it her year at the Oscars.

DETROIT USA 2017 (15)

DETROIT USA 2017

PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA

at Alderman Peel High School,

Market Lane, Wells NR23 1RB


Directed by  Kathryn Bigelow and starring John Boyega, Will Poulter, Algee Smith, Jason Mitchell, John Krasinski & Anthony Mackie

Detroit is a drama based on real events during the 1967 Detroit Riots:  that summer, one of the largest riots in the history of the USA erupted in Detroit, Michigan.   The event which sparked it off was relatively small-scale- the raiding of an unlicenced club frequented by African-Americans – but the kindling was centuries of oppression by arrogant white forces.  The anger hit breaking point and over five days the city burned;  43 were killed and hundreds more were injured.  

Kathryn Bigelow, the Oscar- winning director of THE HURT LOCKER, and the first woman to win this award, depicts these days in a gripping fictionalised reconstruction of those momentous days.  “This is an urgent, maddening, superbly made film and its relevance to what is happening right now in America could not be clearer” Olly Richards  The Telegraph.

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME Italy/France/Brazil/USA


PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA

at Alderman Peel High School,

Market Lane, Wells NR23 1RB


In English, Italian and French –subtitles where necessary

Directed by Luca Guadagnino and starring Arnie Hammer, Timothee Chalamet, Michael Stuhlbarg, Amiia Casar, Esther Garrel &Victoire Du Bois.

Nominated for best feature at this year’s Berlin Film Festival, Luca Guadagnino’s latest film is a sublime, sun-kissed romance based on the acclaimed novel by André Aciman. During the shimmering summer of 1983, precocious Italian-American teenager Elio (a revelatory Chalamet) spends his days at his family’s 17th-century Lombardy villa studying music and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel). When the much older Oliver (Hammer) arrives to study with his historian father (Stuhlbarg), however, Elio’s romantic ambitions develop in a very different direction. Reining in the ostentatious style that characterised his earlier work, Guadagnino (I Am Love, A Bigger Splash) immerses the viewer in the stunning, seductive setting of the Italian Riviera, and allows Call Me By Your Name to flourish as an evocation of the universal joys and pains of first love.

“It’s an incomparably lovely period romance, as warm and therapeutic as the sunlight which suffuses every frame” Robbie Collin, The Telegraph.
