MY POLICEMAN

Fri 4 Nov, Amazon

A beautifully crafted story of forbidden love and changing social conventions, My Policeman follows three young people – policeman Tom (Harry Styles), teacher Marion (Emma Corrin), and museum curator Patrick (David Dawson) – as they embark on an emotional journey in 1950s Britain. Flashing forward to the 1990s, Tom (Linus Roache), Marion (Gina McKee), and Patrick (Rupert Everett) are still reeling with longing and regret, but now they have one last chance to repair the damage of the past. 

Based on the book by Bethan Roberts, director Michael Grandage has carved a visually transporting, heart-stopping portrait of three people caught up in the shifting tides of history, liberty, and forgiveness.

BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER

Fri 11 Nov, Cinema

Phase Four of the MCU draws to a close with a huge game-changer. This sequel to the genre-shifting Black Panther was robbed of its lead character with the sad passing of Chadwick Boseman in 2020. Resisting the temptation to simply recast the role, the franchise is dealing with the loss in terrific style. 

Wakanda now fights to save their nation from invading forces in the wake of their king and protector’s death. While a new threat emerges from the hidden undersea nation of Talokan, there are constitutional questions, palace intrigue and the call of responsibility, as this afro-futurist saga looks to a new hero. 

ARMAGEDDON TIME

Fri 18 Nov, Cinema

Written and directed by James Gray (Ad Astra, We Own the Night) the coming-of-age period drama rotates around a brilliant ensemble cast, including award-winning actors Sir Anthony Hopkins and Anne Hathaway. It’s inspired by Gray’s own adolescent years in Queens, New York.

It explores family, friendship, and living the great American Dream in the 1980s, told through the lens of a teenage boy. We follow Paul Graff, whose friendship with a fellow classmate sparks racism and family turmoil in an increasingly volatile environment. On the surface a politically conscious drama, the film also offers a glimpse into a critical moment in the history of American society.

CONFESS, FLETCH

Fri 18 Nov, Cinema

Based on Gregory Mcdonald’s 1976 novel of the same name, we see a long-awaited third instalment (32 years!) in the Fletch franchise. With a critically-acclaimed return to form from Jon Hamm (Mad Men, Keeping Up with the Joneses), alongside Lorenza Izzo (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) and Marcia Gay Harden (Mystic River, The Newsroom), our hapless ‘hero’ becomes the prime suspect in multiple murders.

Sent to Boston by his girlfriend to recover her family’s stolen paintings, Fletch discovers a dead woman in their townhouse. Tailed all over the city by a tenacious detective, can he prove his innocence and solve the mystery surrounding the priceless art collection’s disappearance?

SHE SAID

Fri 18 Nov, Cinema

Two-time Academy Award nominee Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman, Drive) and Zoe Kazan (The Plot Against America, The Big Sick) star as New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor. This ambitious pair broke one of the most important stories in a generation – shattering decades of silence around the subject of sexual assault in Hollywood and altered American culture forever.

From the Academy Award-winning producers of 12 Years A Slave, Moonlight, Minari, Selma and The Big Short and the Oscar-nominated producer of Zero Dark Thirty and American Hustle, this film is based on the real-life NYT investigation and bestselling book, She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement.

THE MENU

Fri 18 Nov, Cinema

Anya Taylor-Joy and Nicholas Hoult, star as Margot and Tyler – a couple travelling to a coastal island in the Pacific Northwest. They’re hoping to eat at an exclusive restaurant, where the reclusive, globally celebrated Chef Julian Slowik (Ralph Fiennes) has prepared a lavish tasting menu for a select gathering of the great and the good.

The evening unfolds with increasing tension at each of the tables, as secrets are revealed and unexpected courses are served. As wild and violent events unfold, Slowik’s motivation begins to rattle the diners as it becomes increasingly apparent that his elaborate menu is designed to catalyse a shocking finale.

BONES AND ALL

Weds 25 Nov, Cinema

This is the tender story of first love – matching up a young woman learning how to survive on the margins of society and an intense and disenfranchised drifter. Maren (Taylor Russell) and Lee (Timothée Chalamet) meet for a thousand-mile odyssey which takes them through the back roads, hidden passages and trapdoors of Ronald Reagan’s America. 

Adapted from Camille DeAngelis’ novel by David Kajganich, Bones And All, this offbeat, genre-bending, cannibal romance breaks quite a few taboos. Despite the pairing’s best efforts, all roads lead back to their terrifying pasts and to a final stand which will determine whether their feelings can survive their otherness.

NANNY

Weds 23 Nov, Cinema

This psychological horror fable clashes displacement with the collapse of the American dream. Aisha (Anna Diop), a woman who has recently emigrated from Senegal to New York City, is hired to care for the daughter of an affluent couple (Michelle Monaghan and Morgan Spector). 

Haunted by the absence of the young son she left behind, Aisha hopes her new job will afford her the chance to bring him to the US. But she starts becoming increasingly unsettled by her employer’s volatile homelife. As her son’s arrival approaches, a violent presence begins to invade both her dreams and her reality, threatening the idyllic life she is painstakingly piecing together.
