Monday 2 September 2019   Fighting With My Family   British Comedy/Drama (12) 108 minutes
A heart warming comedy based on the incredible true story of WWE Superstar Paige. Born into a tight-knit wrestling family, Paige and her brother Zak are ecstatic when they get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try out for WWE. Paige’s journey pushes her to dig deep, fight for her family, and ultimately prove to the world that what makes her different is the very thing that can make her a star.

The remarkable true-storey of Norwich girl turned all-star, buoyed by a fantastic lead in rising star Florence Pugh. Unmistakably British, a film that will tickle your funny bone in all the right places.

Monday 7 October 2019   Red Joan   Espionage Drama (12) 101 minutes
Joan Stanley is a widow living out a quiet retirement in the suburbs when, shockingly, the British Secret Service places her under arrest. The charge: providing classified scientific information – including details on the building of the atomic bomb – to soviet government for decades. As the interrogation gets underway, Joan relives the dramatic events that shaped her life and her beliefs.

A tense thriller, flipping back and forth between Joan’s younger years as the mystery of her involvement in subterfuge becomes apparent. Gripping from the off.

Monday 4 November 2019   Late Night   Comedy Drama (15) 102 minutes
Legendary talk-show host Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) is a pioneer in her field. She keeps her writers’ room on a short leash – and all male. But when her ratings plummet as she is accused of being a “woman who hates woman,” Katherine puts gender equality on her to-do list and impulsively hires Molly Patel (Mindy Kaling), a chemical plant efficiency expert, as the first and only female writer on her writing staff.

A hilarious, barbed adventure that allows Kaling to play up her woman-of colour attributes that don’t conform to tried Hollywood archetypes.

Monday 2 December 2019   All is True   Historical Biopic (12) 101 minutes
The year is 1613, and Shakespeare is acknowledged as the greatest writer of the age. But disaster strikes when his renowned Globe Theatre burns to the ground. Devastated, Shakespeare returns to Stratford, where he must face as troubled past and a neglected family. Haunted by the death of his only son, Hamnet, he struggles to mend the broken relationship with his wife and daughters. In so doing, he is ruthlessly forced to examine his own failings as a husband and father.

Written by Ben Elton, the script features a sharp and satirical take on the life of the Bard.
