Cyrano My Love
Alexis Michalik | France | 112m | N/C 15+ ( French with English Subtitles)

Screening as part of the French Film Festival 2020.

Alexis Michalik’s period-set biopic reveals the drama behind the playwright’s most famous work Cyrano de Bergerac. We meet Edmond Rostand (Thomas Solivérès) during the explosion of artistic production that marked the Belle Époque in late 19th-century France. Despite being a clearly gifted writer, his career as yet to take off, and his bruised ego makes it difficult for him to find further inspiration. But, with the support of the legendary Sarah Bernhardt, stage legend Constant Coquelin approaches Edmond and demands to star in his next play. With only three weeks to write it and only the title, Cyrano de Bergerac, to work with, can he accomplish the impossible?

Love Child
Eva Mulhad, Lea Glob | Denmark | 2019 | 112m | 15( In Persia, Azerbaijani,Turkish & English with English subtitles)

Love Child offers a heart-breaking portrait of Leila and Sahand, an Iranian couple who are forced to flee for their lives from Tehran where their secret affair and illegitimate child are both considered crimes, punishable by death. Together with their four-year old son Mani they take refuge in Turkey with dreams of a new life, seeking asylum to either Canada or the US. Intimately filmed over a five-year period, so intimately you often forget this is a documentary, we follow their brave quest to be safe together as a family.
“Filmed over six years in Turkey, this is a wonderful account of an Iranian family in exile desperately seeking asylum,” The Guardian

David Fincher | USA | 2020 | 131m | 12A

A rare chance to see possibly 2020’s finest film on the big screen. Gary Oldman is superb as true-life screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz in the 1930s set drama which chronicles his battles with director Orson Welles over screenplay credit for 'Citizen Kane.'

“David Fincher’s beguiling masterwork is worthy of Orson Welles,” ****5/5 The Telegraph
“Gary Oldman plays cynical screenwriter Herman J Mankiewicz in a gorgeously shot film that both revels in Hollywood’s golden age and exposes its corruption,” ****5/5 The Guardian

Contains infrequent strong language, moderate sex references, suicide references
