Bohemian Rhapsody
2018 [12A] 2 hours 14 mins

Director: Bryan Singer
Cast: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee

This is a foot-stomping celebration of the band QUEEN and their extraordinary lead singer, Freddy Mercury who became one of the most beloved entertainers in the world.

The film traces the meteoric rise of the band and their near implosion when Mercury’s life style spirals out of control. It recreates their triumphant reunion for Live Aid when Mercury knew he had AIDS.

Despite lukewarm reviews from the critics the film has been fantastically popular with the public becoming one the highest grossing films ever.

“It delivers moments of shameless air-punching joy” (Alex Needham - Guardian)

Colette
2018 [15] 1 hour 52 mins

Director: Wash Westmoreland
Cast: Keira Knightley, Fiona Shaw, Dominic West

After marrying a successful Parisian writer, twice her age (Dominic West) the young Colette (Keira Knightly) is persuaded to ghost-write stories that he claims credit for. They are semi-autobiographical novels about a young girl from the country called Claudine and become best sellers. Colette and her controlling husband are the toast of Paris as the books become ever more popular.

Eventually Colette insists that her authorship is recognised and she begins to break away from the cultural and sexual constraints of the time, insisting on self-expression and independence.

“A gritty, glamorous biopic” (Mark Kermode)
