As the nights draw in this month we have two heartwarming tales for you. On 4th October we are showing…
When young Victor loses his dog, Sparky, he decides to use the power of electricity to resurrect him. A strategy which goes wrong when he is blackmailed by his peers into revealing how to reanimate all their past pets… This energetic horror movie spoof tells a heartfelt, oddball story. Nominated for Oscars, Golden Globes and BAFTAs this is, at its heart, the homespun story of a boy and his dog, with added Tim Burton quirks.
“A marvellously macabre stop-motion animation, and Tim Burton’s sweetest, most disarming work since 1990’s Edward Scissorhands.” – Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
“Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie has so much charm it should be declared a danger zone. We are in charm’s way from start to finish. The pre-digital-style model animation – in black and white – is childlike, gawky, funny and irresistible” – Financial Times
From the director of Sideways and The Descendants comes a bittersweet road trip movie. An ageing, booze-addled father makes the trip from Montana to Nebraska with his estranged son in order to claim a million-dollar Mega Sweepstakes Marketing prize. The film features the brilliant Bruce Dern (who won Best Actor at Cannes last year for this role). Told with deadpan humour and a unique visual style, it’s ultimately the story of a son trying to get through to a father he doesn’t understand.
Bruce Dern is at the top of his game in Alexander Payne’s road movie about a father and son’s quest for riches.” – Mark Kermode, The Observer
“Bruce Dern’s portrait of the boozy old coot is a wonder” – Wall Street Journal
“A bittersweet elegy for the American extended family and a resounding return to form for Payne” – The Telegraph
