New Releases: 27th JANUARY

SELFISH GIANT:

The-Selfish-Giant-Poster

A highlight of last year, Clio Barnard’s brilliant follow-up to The Arbor transposes Oscar Wilde’s short story to modern day Bradford. Fantastic performances from the two young leads along with a lyrical approach full of heart makes this vital viewing.
Cert. 15

TRAILER

RUSH:

Rush-poster

Still trying to flog Formula One to the yanks Ron Howard (Splash) directs this biopic following the rivalry between racing drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda. All looks pretty cheesey from the trailer but the word has been good with Daniel Bruhl (Goodbye Lenin) and cameraman Anthony Dod Mantle (127 Hours, Antichrist) there to add some class to proceedings.
Cert. 15

TRAILER

SUNSHINE ON LEITH:

Sunshine-on-Leith

Just when you feared they’d never be a musical based on the songs of The Proclaimers your prayers are answered. Former child actor Dexter Fletcher follows Wild Bill with this story of a pair of ex-soldiers learning to embrace life on the civvy streets of Edinburgh after serving in Afghanistan. A quality cast includes Peter Mullan, Jane Horrocks and Jason Flemyng.
Cert. PG

TRAILER

THE CALL:

the-call-poster

Dull title, Halle Berry, disappeared at the cinema – on the face of it this is trash. But it’s directed by Brad Anderson who made the scariest film you’ve never seen (Session 9) and The Machinist so I’d expect this thriller to be a cut above (it’s also been endorsed by distinguished critic John Patterson).
Cert. 15

TRAILER
