BRIDGE OF SPIES

Based on true events during the Cold War, a lawyer, James B. Donovan is recruited by the CIA and involved in an intense negotiation mission to release and exchange a CIA U-2 spy-plane pilot, Francis G. Powers. The pilot was arrested alive after his plane was shot down by the Soviet Union during a mission and stays in the company of a KGB intelligence officer, Rudolf Abel, who was arrested for espionage in the US.

Starring Tom Hanks, and Mark Rylance, directed by Steven Spielberg

6 Oscar nominations, won Best Supporting Actor

Certificate 12

Guardian 5/5 star review  “Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance red hot in Steven Spielberg’s magnificent cold war thriller. The tense negotiations over the recovery of U2 pilot Gary Powers in 1960s Berlin are the real-life backdrop to this wonderfully uncynical. With terrific craftsmanship, pure storytelling gusto and that Midas-touch ability to find grounds for optimism everywhere, Steven Spielberg has dramatised a true-life cold war spy-swap drama”.

LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP

This is a beautiful adaptation of Jane Austen’s novella, Lady Susan, filmed on location in Ireland. With beautiful costumes and fine interiors it is a gem of a film.

Set in the 1790s, Love and Friendship centres on beautiful widow Lady Susan Vernon, who has taken up temporary residence at the estate of her in-laws to wait out colourful rumours about her dalliances circulating through polite society. Whilst there, while there, is determined to be a matchmaker for her daughter Frederica — and herself too, naturally.
Starring Kate Beckinsale, Stephen Fry

“Love & Friendship is an unexpected delight, a tremendously witty adaptation of a little known Jane Austen novella. The film boasts surely the finest performance in Kate Beckinsale’s screen career” Independent

Love & Friendship shows just how funny Jane Austen can be -**** Telegraph

“What audacity, what elegance! Here is a hilariously self-aware period comedy polished to a brilliant sheen
Love & Friendship somehow feels like an undiscovered Oscar Wilde play. Guardian

FRIDAY 13th January 7.45PM
