DARK WATERS 28.02.20
A fascinating David and Goliath story based on the experiences of Robert Bilott during his 20-year legal battle with chemical giant Dupont. Bilott was a successful corporate defense attorney who took on an environmental suit that would upend his entire career as well as his personal life and expose a brazen, decades-long history of chemical pollution that affects the entire planet. From the talented Todd Haynes (CAROL), this released in the US in December and has an impressive and rare 95% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
THE INVISIBLE MAN 28.02.20
An incredibly powerful reimagining and updating of the classic and iconic horror film. This is an extremely unique exploration of gender politics and the dynamics of an abusive relationship within an absolutely terrifying premise. We were shown a clip at Universal’s 2020 Slate Presentation and have been dying to know what happens next ever since!
PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN 17.04.20
Carey Mulligan is a young woman who exacts vengeance for a traumatic event an endless supply of men with nefarious intentions that attempt to take advantage of her in bars. From Killing Eve writer/director Emerald Fennell, this previewed at Sundance to overwhelmingly positive reviews and awe-struck reactions. The trailer alone is remarkably potent - can't wait for this one.
THE LOVEBIRDS 24.04.20
Michael Showalter is one of the most original comedy directors around at the moment. THE BIG SICK and HELLO, MY NAME IS DORIS established him as a master of the complexities as well as the absurdities of human emotions and relationships. The magnificent Issa Rae of Glow and the superb Kumail Nanjiani (THE BIG SICK and Portlandia) play a couple on the verge of breaking up who become unintentionally embroiled in a murder-mystery that promises to keep you guessing and laughing from start to finish.
