NT Live: Small Island (15)

NT Live: Small Island

Adapted by Helen Edmundson

Based on the novel by Andrea Levy


Andrea Levy’s Orange Prize-winning novel Small Island comes to life in an epic new theatre adaptation. Experience the play in cinemas, filmed live on stage as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.


Small Island embarks on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, through the Second World War to 1948 – the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury.


The play follows three intricately connected stories. Hortense yearns for a new life away from rural Jamaica, Gilbert dreams of becoming a lawyer, and Queenie longs to escape her Lincolnshire roots. Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history of Jamaica and the UK.


A company of 40 actors take to the stage of the National Theatre in this timely and moving story.

Amazing Grace (U)

Amazing Grace

Directors: Alan Elliot, Sydney Pollack.

Featuring: Aretha Franklin, Reverend James Cleveland, The Southern California Community Choir.

Duration: 88 mins.


In 1971, the undisputed Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, recorded an album of gospel music live at church. The result: the defining work of her career.


Amazing Grace would go on to become one of Franklin's most commercially successful and beloved albums. These inspirational live sessions were captured across their two nights by Oscar-winning filmmaker Sydney Pollack.


Unseen for almost five decades, the footage holds up as document of one of America's greatest artists and activists, captured with Pollack's unfussy cinéma vérité but electrifying in energy.


Franklin is herself a miracle in undoubtedly one of the greatest gospel performances you'll ever see, with her father Reverend C.L. Franklin, gospel legends Clara Ward and Mother Ward of the Ward Family Singers, Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts amongst the star-studded audience.

Destination Wedding (15)

Destination Wedding

Director: Victor Levin

Cast includes: Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder

Duration: 97 mins.


When Frank (Keanu Reeves) and Lindsay (Winona Ryder) meet on their way to a destination wedding, they soon discover they have a lot in common: they both hate the bride, the groom, the wedding, themselves, and each other. As the weekend's events continually force them together -- and their cheerlessness immediately isolates them from the other guests -- Frank and Lindsay find that if you verbally spar with someone long enough, anything can happen.


Destination Wedding sees Reeves and Ryder together again in an acerbic, misanthropic romantic comedy. If you have struggled to keep smiling through weddings this could be the film for you!

The Merry Wives of Windsor from Shakespeare's Globe (12A)

The Merry Wives of Windsor from Shakespeare's Globe

Double-meanings, disguises and dirty laundry abound in The Merry Wives of Windsor as Sir John Falstaff sets about improving his financial situation by wooing Mistress Page and Mistress Ford. But the ‘Merry Wives’ quickly cotton on to his tricks and decide to have a bit of fun of their own at Falstaff’s expense…


The Merry Wives of Windsor is the only comedy that Shakespeare set in his native land. Drawing influences from 1930s British fashion, music and dance, this new production from Shakespeare’s Globe will celebrate women, and the power and beauty of nature. With its witty mix of verbal and physical humour, the play celebrates a tradition that reaches right down to the contemporary English sitcom.


Directed by Elle While, the production stars Olivier Award-nominated Bryony Hannah (Call the Midwife, The Children’s Hour), Sarah Finigan (Suffragette, Upstart Crow) and Pearce Quigley (Hamlet, As You Like It) as Falstaff. The Merry Wives of Windsor will be staged at the beautiful and iconic Globe Theatre in London and will be broadcast live to cinemas.

Gloria Bell

Director: Sebastián Lelio

Cast includes: Julianne Moore, Sean Astin, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Michael Cera, Alanna Ubach, John Turturro

Duration: 112 mins


Gloria Bell the latest from Chilean director Sebastián Lelio, is a remake of his 2013 award-winning Gloria only the action has been transplanted from Santiago to Los Angeles. Julianne Moore reportedly contacted Lelio keen to star in the remake and it is a triumph for her playing the titular character, a fifty-something divorcee negotiating the choppy waters of pre-retirement life. Gloria (Julianne Moore) spends her nights on the dance floor, joyfully letting loose at clubs around Los Angeles and soon finds herself thrust into an unexpected new romance, filled with the joys of budding love and the complications of dating.


“If the world blows up, I hope I go down dancing,” says Gloria. You can’t leave Lelio’s funny, touching and vital film without hoping Gloria’s wish will come triumphantly true.
