Eighth Grade
Bo Burnham | USA | 2018 | 94m | 15 

Writer/director Bo Burnham, making his feature film debut, delivers a keenly observed and achingly funny portrait of the insecurities and absurdities of being 13 in a world where one’s private experience is lived publicly online. While ‘Eighth Grade’ depicts the seeming impossibility of making it through middle school alive, it also celebrates the debut of its star, Elsie Fisher, who anchors the film with a dynamic portrayal that feels both incredibly specific and heartbreakingly universal.

Maborosi (Maborosi no hikari)
Hirokazu Kore-eda | Japan | 1995 | 109m | PG (Japanese with subtitles)

Styx
Wolfgang Fischer | Germany/Austria | 2018 | 95m | 12A - Contains moderate threat(Contains subtitles)

ER doctor Rike (Susanne Wolff) embarks on a one-woman solo sailing trip to Ascension Island in the Atlantic Ocean. When she comes across a sinking ship of refugees, Rike is quickly torn out of her contented and idealised world and must make a momentous decision.

Aptly named after the mythological river that separates the living from the dead, Styx is an astute modern day parable of Western indifference in the face of marginalised suffering. Carrying practically the entire film Wolff is never less than remarkable in a riveting role as a woman pushed to her physical, psychological, and moral limits.

Tolkien
Dome Karukoski | USA | 2019 | 112m | 12A - Contains moderate war violence

Tolkien explores the formative years of the orphaned author (played by Nicholas Hoult) as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school. This takes him into the outbreak of World War I, which threatens to tear the "fellowship" apart. All of these experiences would inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-Earth novels.

The Yukon Assignment
 

Royal Ballet Romeo and JulietThe perfect film for Father's Day - a father and son undertake a 500-mile canoe trip through the Canadian wilderness. 

British adventurer Chris Lucas and his actor father Niall, depend on each other for survival, as they canoe down one of the most remote rivers in Canada. The Yukon Assignment is a breathtaking exploration of one of the Earth’s last wildernesses and the story of how adventure can bring us together, irrespective of age.

So often in modern life, we make no time to simply experience this, plans are put off, excuses are made, opportunities passed. This film is the antithesis of this lament, inspiring audiences to take action, to seize the opportunity to make time for the important relationships in their life, to embrace the unknown, and to strike out on their own adventures.

Amazing Grace
Alan Elliot,Sydney Pollack | USA | 2018 | 87m | U

In 1972 Aretha Franklin recorded for two nights at a Baptist church in Los Angeles - a legendary session that would become her biggest selling album, Amazing Grace. Remarkably, director Sydney Pollack (‘Out of Africa’) was there to shoot it, but a series of complications led to the footage being left on the shelf - until now.

With the help of modern editing techniques employed by Alan Elliott, this extraordinary performance comes to the big screen for the first time, over 40 years on.

Final Ascent: The Legend Of Hamish MacInnes
Robbie Fraser | UK | 2019 | 81m | PG

Royal Ballet Romeo and JulietThe legend of Hamish MacInnes began early. At 16 he climbed the Matterhorn. At 17 he built his first motor car – from scratch. He attempted Everest in 1953 with his friend Johnny Cunningham, and almost stole the peak before Hillary and Tenzing. As an explorer, expedition leader and engineer he achieved world fame. As inventor of the all metal ice axe, author of the International Mountain Rescue Handbook and founder of Glencoe Mountain Rescue he has been responsible for saving hundreds of lives, if not thousands. But at the age of 84, his accomplishments could not save him from being institutionalised against his will, suffering from delirium. After a spell in psychogeriatric detainment in a hospital in the Highlands of Scotland, during which he made many escape attempts – he emerged to find his memory gone.

This film tells the story of his life by mirroring his greatest challenge: to recover his memories and rescue himself.
