Sing Street

John Carney's latest is a beguiling portrait of '80s Dublin, complete with stone-washed denim, wild haircuts and a soundtrack by The Cure, Duran Duran and The Police. 

Captain Fantastic

An unconventional family leaves its wilderness home and tries to adapt to the world outside the forests of the Pacific Northwest. Captain Fantastic is a humourous drama from writer and director Matt Ross.

Elvis and Nixon

Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey shine in this comedy based on the real-life meeting between Elvis Presley and President Nixon, when the King made a most unusual proposition.

Love and Friendship

An adaptation of young Jane Austen's novella Lady Susan. Set in the 1970's, a beautiful young widow comes to the estate of her in-laws to wait out colourful rumours about her dalliances.

Maggie's Plan

In Rebecca Miller's witty romantic comedy, a thirty-something New Yorker discovers the unexpected complexities of modern romance, mixing heart and humour in a story of the delightful variability of relationships.


In a village in the north of Turkey, five sisters cause a scandal with unintended consequences. Driven by the same desire for freedom, they fight back against the limits imposed on them.

Sunset Song

Terence Davis' intimate epic of hope, tragedy and love at the dawning of the Great War. A young woman's endurance against the hardships of rural Scotland life told with gritty poetic realism.
