Can You Ever Forgive Me?
2018 [15] 1 hour 46 mins

Director: Marielle Heller
Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Richard E. Grant, Dolly Wells

Melissa McCarthy stars as Lee Israel a one- time best selling celebrity biographer who made her living in the 1970’s and 80’s profiling such people as Katharine Hepburn and Estee Lauder.

When her work failed to keep up with changing trends and she was unable to get published she turned her hand to deception, in order to make a living. Aided and abetted by her eccentric friend Jack (a gleeful turn from Richard E Grant) she forged celebrity letters, which together they sold to collectors.

“A brilliant performance from McCarthy” (Peter Bradshaw)

Stan & Ollie
2018 [PG] 1 hour 38 mins

Director: Jon S. Baird
Cast: Steve Coogan, John C. Reilly, Shirley Henderson

This charming film pays tribute to a pair of beloved entertainers with an affectionate look behind the scenes. It movingly addresses the burdens and blessings of a creative partnership and the friendship between the two is marvellously recreated.

Steve Coogan (Stan Laurel) and John C. Riley (Oliver Hardy) are perfect in their roles and both have won a number of awards for their brilliant performances.

Shirley Henderson and Nina Arianda as the wives are also excellent and often very funny.

“What a lovely generous tonic this delightful movie proves to be” (Mark Kermode – Observer)
