Green Book (12A) 130min.

Winner of 3 Oscars – Best Motion Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Ali) and Best Screenplay

When Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighbourhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger as well as unexpected humanity and humour—they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.  From the official website

Friday March 22nd

First Man (12A) 114min.

The riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight.  A visceral and intimate account told from Armstrong’s perspective, the film explores the triumphs and the cost – on Armstrong, his family, his colleagues and the nation itself – of one of the most dangerous missions in history.  Directed by Damien Chazelle and starring Ryan Gosling.


 

 

 

“Ryan Gosling plays Neil Armstrong as a hero of relatively few words but Claire Foy provides the emotional heft (and the Oscar buzz) as the steadfast spouse of the lunar legend.”  Radio Times

 

 

 

 “This is at once cracking, deep-cutting, free-flowing in a defined range, fast and compelling.”  Eye for Film
