SAINT MAUD

Director: Rose Glass
Produced by: Andrea Cornwell, Oliver Kassman
Written by: Rose Glass
Cast: Morfydd Clark (THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD) Jennifer Ehle (PRIDE AND PREJUDICE)
SAINT MAUD

A bold and strikingly original psychological chiller, SAINT MAUD follows a young live-in nurse whose lonely life and religious fervour lead her towards an increasingly dangerous quest that is anything but holy. Heralding the arrival of a bold new voice in British cinema, first time feature director Rose Glass, and a breakout lead performance from Morfydd Clark, SAINT MAUD is a deeply unnerving must-see for film-lovers and adventurous horror fans alike.

Debut director Rose Glass was awarded the IWC Schaffhausen Filmmaker Bursary Award at the London Film Festival 2019 by celebrated British director Danny Boyle, who described her as "an extraordinary talent and powerful storyteller."

THE SECRET GARDEN

THE SECRET GARDEN tells the story of Mary Lennox (Dixie Egerickx - Genius, The Little Stranger and A Royal Winter), a prickly and unloved 10-year-old girl, born in India to wealthy British parents.

When they suddenly die, she is sent back to England to live with her uncle, Archibald Craven (Academy Award® and BAFTA-winner Colin Firth – A Single Man, The King’s Speech, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Bridget Jones’s Baby) on his remote country estate deep in the Yorkshire moors, under the watchful eye of Mrs. Medlock (BAFTA-winner Julie Walters – Mary Poppins Returns, Harry Potter, Mamma Mia) and only with the household maid, Martha (Isis Davis - Guilt, Electric Dreams) for company.

Mary begins to uncover many family secrets, particularly after meeting her sickly cousin Colin (Edan Hayhurst – Genius, There She Goes), who has been shut away in a wing of the house, and through her discovery of a wondrous garden, locked away and lost within the grounds of Misselthwaite Manor.

While searching for Hector, the stray dog who had led Mary to the garden walls, she befriends local boy Dickon (Amir Wilson – His Dark Materials, The Kid Who Would Be King) who, through the garden’s restorative powers, helps her to fix Hector's injured leg. Together, these three damaged, slightly misfit children heal each other as they delve deeper into the mysteries of the garden – a magical place of adventure that will change their lives forever.

ANOTHER ROUND

27 November 2020

Director: Thomas Vinterberg (THE HUNT, THE COMMUNE)

Written by: Tobias Lindholm (BORGEN, A HIJACKING), Thomas Vinterberg
Cast: Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Bo Larsen, Lars Ranthe, Magnus Millang
ANOTHER ROUND

There is an obscure philosophical theory that humans should have been born with a small amount of alcohol in our blood; that modest inebriation opens our minds to the world around us, diminishing problems and increasing creativity.

Intrigued, Martin (Mads Mikkelsen) and three of his friends, all weary high school teachers, embark on a risky experiment to maintain a constant level of intoxication throughout the workday.

Initial results are positive, but as the units are knocked back and stakes are raised, it becomes increasingly clear that some bold acts carry severe consequences.

BLITHE SPIRIT

26 December 2020

Director: Edward Hall (DOWNTON ABBEY)
Produced by: James Spring (FISHERMAN'S FRIENDS, EASY VIRTUE), Meg Leonard and Nick Moorcroft (FISHERMAN'S FRIENDS, FINDING YOUR FEET), Hilary Bevan Jones (PIRATE RADIO), Peter Snell (THE WICKER MAN) and Tuni Pinno
Written by: Piers Ashworth, Meg Leonard and Nick Moorcroft
Cast: Dan Stevens (DOWNTON ABBEY, LEGION, APOSTLE), Isla Fisher (THE BEACH BUM, NOW YOU SEE ME), Leslie Mann (THIS IS 40, THE OTHER WOMAN), Dame Judi Dench (PHILOMENA, MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS)
BLITHE SPIRIT

Best-selling crime novelist Charles (Dan Stevens) is struggling with catastrophic writer’s block and a stressful deadline for his first screenplay. His picture-perfect second wife Ruth (Isla Fisher) is doing her best to keep him focussed in the hope of fulfilling her dream of heading to Hollywood. Charles’ desperate search for inspiration leads him to invite Madame Arcati (Dame Judi Dench), a medium recently exposed as a fraud, to perform a séance in their home.

They all get more than they bargained for when Arcati accidentally summons the spirit of his deceased first wife; the fiery and jealous Elvira (Leslie Mann), who embarks on a mission to kill Charles so she can spend eternity with him, leading to an increasingly comical and deadly love triangle.

SUPERNOVA

For writer/director Harry Macqueen, “SUPERNOVA is a deeply romantic, modern love story. It follows two people who are bound together by their love for each other, but being pushed apart by the situation they find themselves in. It is an intimate, naked portrayal of a relationship facing a fissure that threatens to cut it to its very core. SUPERNOVA is an empowering, powerful and challenging film about what we are willing to do for the people that we love.”
