When a wealthy visitor entrusts Mary with the care of his wife Charlotte Murchison (Saoirse Ronan), she cannot afford to turn his offer down. Proud and relentlessly passionate about her work, Mary initially clashes with her unwelcome guest, but despite the distance between their social class and personalities, an intense bond begins to develop, compelling the two women to determine the true nature of their relationship.

Lee Isaac Chung | USA | 2020 | 115m | 12A ( rude gesture, suicide references) In Korean and English with English subtitles

Minari is a superb BAFTA and Oscar winning drama about a Korean American family that moves to an Arkansas farm in 1980s in search of their own American Dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother (brilliantly played by award-winning Youn Yuh-Jung). Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home. It's a tender, sweeping, and frequently laugh out loud funny story about what roots us, family.

Alex Ferguson: Never Give In
Jason Ferguson | UK | 2021 | Running Time TBC | Q&A | 12A

Alex Ferguson
We are delighted to bring this one-night-only event to the RBCFT. It will feature the bard new documentary about Sir Alex alongside an exclusive pre-recorded Q&A with him discussing his storied career.
A revealing and deeply personal documentary about the life of Sir Alex Ferguson, from his working-class roots in Glasgow to his career as one of the greatest football managers of all time. While recovering from a traumatic brain haemorrhage, Sir Alex intimately recounts details of his life and career to his son, including his legendary 26-year tenure as manager of Manchester United. Directed by Sir Alex’s son, Jason Ferguson, this is a moving story about the extraordinary power of memory.

Alex recalls his career vividly - every trophy, every defeat, and every player. From his own successful playing career and prolific goal-scoring at Scottish clubs, including Rangers, to his move into management and leading Aberdeen to the European Cup Winners’ Cup, and then finally his move south to Old Trafford. After a testing few years at United, he turned the club’s fortunes around and led them to over two decades of consistent success.

Under Ferguson’s guidance, Manchester United won a glittering array of trophies, including 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups, and two UEFA Champions League titles. He has won more trophies than any other manager in football history.

The film features candid interviews with Alex himself, his wife Cathy, his three sons, as well as former colleagues and elite players including Eric Cantona, Ryan Giggs and Gordon Strachan.

This is a film about the bond between a father and son, an exploration of leadership and mental toughness, and a celebration of one of football’s greatest careers.

Pedro Almodovar's The Human Voice with Tilda Swinton plus Q&A
Pedro Almodovar | Spain | 2020 | 76m | 15


We are thrilled to bring the new short film, THE HUMAN VOICE, directed by Spanish auteur Pedro Almodóvar and starring Tilda Swinton, to the RBCFT as a special Event Screening, accompanied by a pre-recorded Q&A with Almodóvar and Swinton hosted by film critic Mark Kermode.

THE HUMAN VOICE was shot over nine days in Madrid in July and premiered to critical acclaim at the Venice Film Festival in 2020. It is Almodóvar’s first work in the English language.

Madness and melancholy intersect to thrilling effect as Almodóvar reimagines Jean Cocteau’s short play The Human Voice for an era in which isolation has become a way of life. Laws of desire become the rules of the game as Tilda Swinton’s unnamed woman paces and panics in a glorious Technicolor apartment where décor offers a window into her state of mind. A short, sharp shot of distilled Almodóvar: passion, emotion, heartbreak, wit, and melodrama exquisitely bound up in a tale for our times.

The critically-acclaimed 30 minute film will be followed by a 45 minute entertaining and insightful recorded Q&A. Hosted by Mark Kermode, Pedro and Tilda discuss the inspirations they drew on for the film, how THE HUMAN VOICE fits within the ‘Almodovar oeuvre’, and what Pedro will be making next - including a great surprise for Tilda. Recorded under lockdown conditions, the discussion features visual references and clips to create a dynamic and interesting companion piece to the short film.
