RED JOAN   –    (Espionage Drama)  101 mins.

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 the 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 more apparent.  Gripping from the off, with Judi Dench’s glamour-less appearance intended to sway audiences when contrasted against Sophie Cookson’s portrayal of Joan in her younger years.

THE WHITE CROW  – Biopic Drama (124 Mins)

Young Rudolf Nureyev becomes a top ballet dancer in Russia, but a life-changing visit to Paris soon makes him seek asylum in France.

Many ballet fans will be familiar with the incredible story of Nureyev’s defection to the West, but for younger and unfamiliar audiences, Fiennes pays homage to Russia’s greatest dancer by being faithful to his country of origin.  Accessible and graceful throughout, with a hypnotising performance by newcomer Oleg Ivenko in the lead.

YESTERDAY  – (British Comedy/Drama/Musical)  – 116 mins.

Jack Malik is a struggling singer-songwriter in a tiny English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie.  After a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed… and he finds himself with a very complicated problem indeed.

Pure fantasy of joyous proportions.  A crowd-pleaser as Jack belts out Beatles hit after hit.  Supported by a wonderful ensemble, this Richard Curtis-penned film is not far away from his usual formula – with a gentle heart and a light touch.  Yesterday ensures that the musical legacy of The Beatles lives on for everyone.

FISHERMAN’S FRIENDS  – (British Musical Biopic, Drama)  112 mins

Ten fisherman from Cornwall achieve a Top 10 hit after they are signed by Universal Records for their canny talent of being able to sing a sea shanty or two.

Whilst there is definite appeal to coastal venues with strong fishing links, Fisherman’s Friends taps into the sense of close-knit communities, middle-age male obsolescence and the commitment of keeping traditions alive.  One to keep your audiences swinging and swaying along in the aisles.
