The Favourite
Yorgos Yanthimos | Ireland/UK/USA | 2018 | 119m | 15

The FavouriteEarly C18th. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (a superb Olivia Colman) occupies the throne, and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing, and Abigail sees a chance to return to her aristocratic roots.

"’The Favourite’ is a filthy, violent and outrageous period comedy that drips with bad language and worse behaviour…it’s also strangely touching."
***** BBC Culture

The Chocolate Case
Benthe Forrer | Netherlands | 2016 | 90m | 

The Favourite

Can a globalised food system ever be truly ethical?
This engaging and thoughtful documentary tracks three Dutch journalists’ decade-long efforts to end the chocolate industry’s reliance on child labour and worker exploitation.
Affable and with a penchant for absurdist pranks (The Yes Men, anyone?), the three friends ran a TV show investigating unsafe, often unsavoury practices in the food sector. Shocked both by lack of progress on workers’ rights in cocoa plantations and public apathy towards this modern-day slavery, they embarked on a high-profile campaign to expose this reality. Their investigations uncovered serious failings, even among fairtrade producers, so they put their money where their sweet tooth was: they turned from journalists to entrepreneurs, setting out to make a “100% slave-free” chocolate bar.


Followed by a panel discussion on the links between responsible business, consumers, and modern day slavery with Dumfries Fairtrade Group, Take One Action Film Festivals and a local chocolatier (TBC).

Beautiful BoyWe're delighted to bring the back the multi award winning - and Oscar nominated - documentary about free soloist climber Alex Honnold after recent sell out screenings. ‘Free Solo’ is a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock... the 3,200ft El Capitan in Yosemite National Park… without a rope or safety gear.

Burning (Beoning)
Lee Chang-Dong | South Korea | 2018 | 148m | 15 (contains subtitles)

The Favourite

Adapted from Haruki Murakami's short story ‘Barn Burning’, this is a psychological thriller of obsessive love that lingers on expressionistic moments.

Murakami is notoriously difficult to adapt and South Korean director Lee Chang Dong wisely takes just the bare bones of the writer’s short story Barn Burning to deliver a brilliantly executed, abstract but intellectually stimulating portrait of working class frustrations and contemporary alienation. A psychological thriller that lingers on expressionistic moments, it also finds time to incorporate Miles Davis’s Générique from Malle’s ‘Lift to the Scaffold’.

Screening as part of the Monday Night Film Club. The film will be preceded by a short intro and all are welcome to stay on for the post-film discussion, complimentary tea and coffee will be made available.

Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Marielle Heller | USA | 2018 | 106m | 15

Beautiful BoyThe multi-award nominated comedy drama about celebrity biographer Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy) who made her living profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead and Estee Lauder. When Lee is no longer able to get published because she has fallen out of step with current tastes, she turns her art form to deception, abetted by her loyal friend Jack (brilliantly played by Richard E. Grant).

"Dowdy, half-soused, and frowning for nearly the entire running time, McCarthy earns nearly as many laughs playing this curmudgeonly cat lady as she does in her more irrepressible comedic parts", Variety

"Melissa McCarthy is magnificent as an odious literary forger abetted by Richard E Grant as her lounge-lizard drinking buddy"***** The Guardian

Withnail & I
Bruce Robinson | UK | 1987 | 105m | 15

ColetteWith Richard E. Grant being nominated left, right and centre for his performance as Jack in 'Can You Ever Forgive Me?' what better time to revisit his performance as the mighty Withnail in possibly the finest cult film known to humanity!
Camden Town, the arse-end of the sixties. Two struggling, unemployed actors decide some respite is in order and so depart their miserable flat for a week in the Lake District – one that will involve rain, booze, minimal supplies, a randy bull and an even randier Uncle Monty.
Perfectly cast – with career-defining roles for Richard E. Grant, Paul McGann, Richard Griffiths and Ralph Brown – and crammed with irresistibly quotable dialogue, WITHNAIL and I is a sheer delight, even on the umpteenth viewing.

If Beale Street Could Talk
Barry Jenkins | USA | 2018 | 119m | 15

Beautiful Boy

Director Jenkins follows up his award winning ‘Moonlight’ with a truly superb love story based on the novel by James Baldwin. In early 1970s Harlem, wife-to-be Tish vividly recalls the passion, respect and trust that have connected her and her artist fiancé Fonny. Friends since childhood, the devoted couple dream of a future together, but their plans are derailed when Fonny is arrested for a crime he did not commit.

How this wasn't nominated in the Best Film category at this year's BAFTA Awards we just don't know. In our view, a far, far better film than 'Moonlight'.
