RIDING MILL FILM CLUB - 2022 PROGRAMME

 

11th March

Yesterday (2019, PG-13, 1hr 36min) [Comedy, Fantasy, Music, Romance]

Directed by Danny Boyle with screenplay by Richard Curtis

A film to be enjoyed by all those amongst you who are prepared to ‘suspend disbelief’. It is actually more fun to see if you don’t know the story.

Set in Lowestoft, where Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) is a frustrated musician, whose musical career is going nowhere despite the faith that his friend/manager Ellie Appleton (Lily James) has in him. However, on the night Jack decides to give up, the whole world is momentarily hit with a freak event during which Jack has an accident. Upon regaining consciousness, he slowly realises that the world has changed.

 

22nd April

Green Book (2018, PG-13, 2hr 10min) [Biography, Comedy, Drama]

3 Oscars 2019

            Dr Don Shirley was a world-class African-American pianist (1927-2013). It is 1962 and Shirley (Mahershala Ali) is about to embark on a concert tour of the Deep South. As he needs a driver (and protection!) he employs Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen) - a tough-talking bouncer from an Italian-American neighbourhood in the Bronx. Despite their differences, the two men develop an unexpected bond whilst confronting racism and danger in an era of segregation.

 

13th May

Just mercy (2019, PG-13, 2hr 17mim) [Biography, Crime, Drama]

After graduating from Harvard, Bryan Stevenson (Michael B Jordan) heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned and those not afforded proper representation. One of his first cases is that of Walter McMillian (Jamie Foxx), who is sentenced to death for the murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite the evidence seeming to suggest that he is innocent.

 

17th June

The good liar (2019, R, 1hr 49min) [Crime, Drama, Mystery]

Career con artist Roy Courtnay (Sir Ian McKellen) can hardly believe his luck when he meets well-to-do widow Betty McLeish (Dame Helen Mirren) on-line. As Betty opens her home and life to him, Roy is surprised to find himself beginning to care about her, turning what should be a cut-and-dried swindle into the most treacherous tightrope walk of his life.

 

8th July

Hidden Figures (2016, PG, 2hr 7min) [Biography, Drama, History]

3 Oscar nominations 2017.

This biographical drama explores racism and sexism in 1950s America and was a nominee for the 2017 Oscars, Golden Globes and BAFTAs. Three brilliant African-American women at NASA serve as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit - a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race and galvanized the world.

 

 

9th September

Sorry we missed you (2019, Unclassified, 1hr 41min) [Drama]

Directed by Ken Loach (BAFTA-nominated)

Ricky and his family have been fighting an uphill struggle against debt since the 2008 financial crash. An opportunity to wrestle back some independence appears with a shiny new van and the chance to run a franchise as a self-employed delivery driver. It's hard work, and his wife's job as a carer is no easier. The family unit is strong but when both are pulled in different directions everything comes to breaking point.

 

 

14th October 2022

The Lives of Others (2006, 15, German, 2hr 17min) [Drama, Mystery, Thriller]

Best Foreign Film at 2007 Oscars & 2008 BAFTAs.

Gerd Wiesler is an officer with the Stasi, the East German secret police. The film begins in 1984 when Wiesler attends a play written by Georg Dreyman, who is considered by many to be the ultimate example of the loyal citizen. Wiesler has a gut feeling that Dreyman can't be as ideal as he seems, and believes surveillance is called for. The more time he spends listening in on them, the more involved in their lives he becomes – with unfortunate consequences
