lore-poster-big

An unreconstructed Nazi teenager comes to terms with her father's crimes and a nation's guilt as she steers her four younger siblings through a mortally surreal landscape in this subtle, eerie portrait of WWII-torn Germany.

Directed by Australian film-maker Cate Shortland and adapted by Robin Mukherjee from a story by British novelist Rachel Seiffert, Lore is a powerfully intimate and beautifully acted film with the fragmented, surreal quality of a dream that refuses to pull its punch.

Directed by Cate Shortland with Saskia Rosendahl
118 mins. Cert 15. All Tickets £7

THE BISHOP'S WIFE (2012)

Cary Grant is an angel sent to help a newly appointed Bishop (David Niven) who is too busy to pay attention to his wife. An enchanting film that shows us that it is more important to care for people than an ambition to build a huge cathedral. We cannot recommend you to a more delightful and appropriate Christmas show.

Directed by Henry Koster with Cary Grant, Loretta Young and David Niven
109 minutes. Cert U. All tickets £7.
