Saturday 21st May 2016   "THE DANISH GIRL"   Cert 15

Click here for trailer

In mid-1920s Copenhagen, portrait artist Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander) asks her husband, popular landscape artist Einar Wegener (Eddie Redmayne), to stand in for a female model who was late to come to their flat to pose for a painting she's working on. The act of Einar posing as a female figure unmasks his lifelong identification as a woman, whom he has named Lili Elbe. This sets off a progression, first tentative and then irreversible, of leaving behind the identity as Einar, which Lili has struggled to maintain all her life. 

Helped considerably by Vikander's strong playing and a lovely turn by Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts (late of the remake of Far From The Madding Crowd) as Einar's old friend Hans, this nevertheless hangs upon Redmayne. Vikander delves beneath the surface to explore a truly fascinating woman. Redmayne is simply wonderful, totally convincing both as Einar and as the "Danish girl" of the film's title.

Saturday 23rd July 2016   "A WALK IN THE WOODS"   Cert 15

Click here for trailer

Robert Redford, NIck Nolte and Emma Thompson start in this delightfully funny adaptation of Bill Bryson's international bestseller. Deciding to hike the notoriously tough Appalachian trail, Bryson (Redford) invites old pal Katz (Nolte), who turns up wheezing and overweight for a trip involving high altitudes, hardy terrain and ...bears. Using their journey as a metaphor for the uncertainty of old age, with majestic footage of rural America, it's a hilarious, touching film with very enjoyable comic turns from Redford, Nolte, Emma Thompson (as Brysons's wife), Nick Offerman and Kristen Schall.
