FISHERMAN'S FRIENDS

M/111min/Comedy

A fast living, cynical London music executive reluctantly heads to Cornwall on a colleague’s stag weekend where he’s pranked by his boss into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen. He becomes the ultimate ‘fish out of water’ struggling to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. As he gets to know the ‘salt of the earth’ locals his own integrity is tested, forcing him to reevaluate what really matters in life giving him the chance of a different kind of success.
A heart-warming, romantic comedy in the tone of Waking Ned, The Full Monty and Finding Your Feet. Based on a true story that saw Port Isaac’s ‘Fisherman’s Friends’ journey from singing in the local harbor to raise money for the village Lifeboat Association to a million pound record deal with Universal Music, a top-ten album and playing the Pyramid stage at the world famous Glastonbury Festival.


PAIN AND GLORY

MA15+/114min/Drama

Pedro Almodóvar reunites with Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz in his most personal film yet: a gorgeous reflection on cinema, art, family, love, and sexual awakening. Banderas, in one of his very finest performances, plays Salvador Mallo, who has a fair few things in common with Pedro Almodóvar. Suffering from a range of health issues, Salvador finds himself in a creative rut. He lacks the physical strength to make a film, and this inability to create makes him more depressed. This artistic limbo leads Salvador to reflect on his life, his loves and his films. 
Pain and Glory goes back in time to Salvador’s childhood, where he was raised, in poverty, in a cave modelled into a house by his doting mother (played superbly by Cruz). In the present, a reunion with an actor he has long been estranged from leads to an addiction to heroin. Amidst the pain, there are thoughts of past glories, and those hopefully to come, in a film that arrives at a resolute position of hope. As always, there is a meticulous attention to detail, and images and moments that make you swoon in the distinctive way that only a Pedro Almodóvar film can.
ITALIAN FILM FESTIVAL: BANGLA

CTC/84min/Comedy

A romantic comedy with a huge heart and charm to match, promising director Phaim Bhuiyan’s debut is a fresh and spirited portrait of the complications of young love caught between very different beliefs.
Phaim (played by the director himself) is a 22 year old Italian of Bangladeshi origin. He lives with his family in Rome’s multiethnic Torpignattara neighbourhood, works as a museum steward and plays in a band. When he meets Asia (Carlotta Antonelli), his exact opposite, she is not how he imagined his first girlfriend would be. Asia is impulsive and lives on instinct. Despite this, the attraction between them is immediate. But first, Phaim must figure out how to reconcile his love for her with one of his faith’s most sacred rules.
Based on the director’s own experiences and brimming with witty observations, Bangla is an endearing and relevant story about integration and identity. 
Commences 28th November

LAST CHRISTMAS

PG/103min/Romantic Comedy

Kate (Emilia Clarke) harumphs around London, a bundle of bad decisions accompanied by the jangle of bells on her shoes, another irritating consequence from her job as an elf in a year-round Christmas shop. Tom (Henry Golding) seems too good to be true when he walks into her life and starts to see through so many of Kate’s barriers. As London transforms into the most wonderful time of the year, nothing should work for these two. But sometimes, you gotta let the snow fall where it may, you gotta listen to your heart … and you gotta have faith.
Last Christmas features the music of George Michael, including the bittersweet holiday classic of the film’s title. The film will also premiere brand new unreleased material by the legendary Grammy-winning artist, who sold more than 115 million albums and recorded 10 No. 1 singles over the course of his iconic career.
