Happy New Year! And welcome to our Spring Season.
We begin 2015 with two wonderful films – a vintage classic, and a contemporary drama, both of which have something to say about community, family, and where to fit in.
The Jungle Book is classic family entertainment – a wonderful musical animation based on Rudyard Kipling’s tale of fun and danger in the jungle. Ten year old Mowgli has been raised by wolves. When the dangerous tiger, Shere Khan, returns to the area, Mowgli’s friends – Bagheera the panther, and Baloo the bear – try to return him to the safety of the human village.
“a jazzy, bopping nuthouse of a flick… a favourite… for its giddy humour and belting songs… pretty much perfect viewing time and again” – Empire
Two Days, One Night is one of those films that, once seen, will stay with you like nothing else you’ve seen this year.
Marion Cotillard plays Sandra who, at the start of the film, receives a phone call from the small solar-panel factory where she works: a vote has been taken and her colleagues have chosen to have her sacked to protect their annual thousand-euro bonus. When Sandra protests, her boss agrees to have the vote retaken on Monday morning, after she has had a chance to make her case. She and her husband realise that Saturday and Sunday must be spent visiting her colleagues one by one, pleading, persuading and securing their support. The most beautiful and heart-rending film of the year.
