Here is just a small selection of the great films coming up this Autumn/Winter:
“Rachel Weisz is captivating” - ★★★★ The Guardian
Based on Daphne Du Maurier’s 1951 classic novel, My Cousin Rachel is a simmering tale of suspicion, attraction and infatuation set in 19th Century Cornwall. Already well-established as a stage play, Roger Mitchell’s screen adaptation has been praised as “tense” (Village Voice), “dark and delicious” (LA Times) and “pure pleasure” (Variety).
“Even the tiniest gestures have years of family history buried within them” - ★★★★★ Telegraph
Renowned Japanese director Hirokazu Koreeda returns with this beautifully simple family drama about a formerly successful author who must face up to the realities and responsibilities of being a father as a typhoon draws ever-closer to his hometown. The Hollywood Reporter described it as “beautifully balanced between gentle comedy and the melancholy reality of how people really are”.
“Suspenseful, dourly funny and at times piercingly emotional” - ★★★★★ New York Times
In this supernatural drama Casey Affleck (Manchester By the Sea) plays a white-sheeted ghost; a deceased musician left to wander the halls of his old house where his widow, Rooney Mara (Carol), tries to rebuild her life after his death. It’s one of the most talked about films of the year, and with good reason – director David Lowery’s meditative, poetic style is truly captivating.
“A brilliant, restrained biopic” - ★★★★★ – Boston Globe
Following its triumphant premiere at the 2017 Audi Dublin International Film Festival, this Irish-Canadian co-production from director Aisling Walsh recounts the fascinating life of Maude Lewis (Sally Hawkins) – a disabled folk artist who gained fame in the 1960s for painting her husband’s (Ethan Hawke) tiny house with spectacular murals. Don’t forget to pack a few tissues for this one!
We’ve run through just a small selection of the fantastic Irish and international releases you’ll be have access to when you buy a Monday Night Cinema Season Ticket.
