Belfast(12A) | Tuesday 8 February 2pm
Kenneth Branagh’s intimate and deeply personal reflection on his childhood experience in 1960s Northern Ireland focuses on impressionistic nine-year-old Buddy, as he navigates his away towards adulthood during a time of sweeping socio-political change. Recalling classic coming of age tales such The 400 Blows (playing here on 3rd & 6th Feb), 2019 Oscar winner Roma and John Booman’s Hope and Glory, the story provides a child’s eye view on an adult world, as Buddy tempers the turmoil of The Troubles with his vivid imagination and love of cinema. Meticulous in its attention to period detail and unapologetically nostalgic in its depiction of community spirit, it’s blessed with some wonderfully wry and witty dialogue, much of it from Dame Judi Dench as Buddy’s doting Granny. The cinematography may be black and white, but the characters are full of colour.
Nightmare Alley (Cert TBC) | Wednesday 16 February 2pm
Guillermo del Toro’s follow up to the multi-award winning The Shape of Water conjures up a noirish world of deception and duplicity as a charismatic carnival showman sets out to run con tricks on the wealthy elite of 1940s New York society. Utilising his mind reading act and talent for manipulating people with a few well-chosen words, he teams up with a mysterious psychiatrist with an elaborate plan to swindle a powerful businessman. But the scheming femme fatal has plans of her own. With a starry cast and impeccable production design, del Toro brings William Lindsay Gresham’s 1946 novel to the screen with his trademark visual flair.
