Director: Mike Newell
Cast: Jessica Brown Findlay, Tom Courtenay, Michiel Huisman

In post-war London a charismatic and free-spirited young woman (Juliet) receives a letter from a member of a mysterious literary club founded in Nazi-occupied Guernsey. She visits the island where she meets the delightfully eccentric members of the society, including the rugged and intriguing farmer who wrote the letter. As the secrets of their war time experience unfold Juliet gradually develops an attachment to the island and the book club, (and of course the farmer), which changes the course of her life forever.

Leave No Trace
(2018) [PG] 1 hour 49 mins

Director: Debra Granik
Cast: Thomasin McKenzie, Ben Foster, Jeffery Rifflard

A traumatised Vietnam war veteran and his teenage daughter have been living “off grid” for several years in the wilderness of America’s Pacific North West.  They are eventually discovered and forced by social services to re-enter the modern world, which the father finds intolerable.  They set off again on a harrowing journey back to their wild forest homeland, but all the while the daughter is growing and maturing and beginning to question her father’s decisions.

The acting from both the leads is wonderful.

“A flawless deeply affecting film ( 5 stars)” (Mark Kermode – The Guardian)

Cold War
(2018) [15] 1 hour 28 mins (Polish - subtitled)

Director: Pawel Pawlikowski
Cast: Joanna Kulig, Tomasz Kot, Borys Szyc

Beautifully shot in black and white, Cold War is the intimate and passionate love story of two people who meet in the ruins of post war Poland. They are from very different backgrounds, mismatched in many ways, but somehow destined to be together. Set in the shadow of the iron curtain in 1950’s Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris it is the tale of two star-crossed lovers separated by politics, twists of fate and their own character flaws. An impossible love story in impossible times.
