Faces Places (12A)

Agnes Varda is now 90 and has been at the heart of European filmmaking since the early 1960s. Her latest film is a documentary made alongside JR – a photographer and muralist 55 years her junior. Together they present episodes in the lives of seemingly ordinary French people. Photographed portraits are massively enlarged and posted onto public spaces. The formula is simple but totally winning: a film free of any malice or cynicism its humanity will bring tears to your eyes.

We’re picking great films for the coming weeks.

Harry Dean Stanton died recently and in his final film he is Lucky who lives an uncomplicated small-town life in New Mexico. A great script and swansong for a legendary actor. Lucky (15) is on 26th November.

We know that many of you are looking forward to seeing Wajib (15) on 3rd December a lovely family drama set in Nazereth.

If all goes well, we’re planning to screen the Cannes 2018 Palme d’Or winner The Shoplifters (15) on December 10th. We’ve just seen the preview of this superb film and we’re excited to be able to bring it to you just a couple of weeks after its UK release.

The last film in our 2018 season is going to be a lovely drama documentary about Argentina’s famous tango dancing couple Maria Nieves Rego and Juan Carlos Copes. Our Last Tango (12A) is showing on 17th December.

We’re also hoping to open our 2019 season on 7th January with Mike Leigh’s Peterloo so pencil that into your diaries.
