27th September ‘18 – LEAVE NO TRACE
Dir: Debra Granik – USA

A father & daughter live off the grid in the Portland wilderness, rarely making contact with the world. But when a small mistake tips them off to authorities, they embark on an increasingly erratic journey in search of a place to call their own. Powerful, poignant drama inspired by true events based on Peter Rock’s novel ‘My Abandonment’.


4th October ‘19 – LOVELESS
Dir: Andrei Zvagintsev – Russia

Oscar nominated drama set in modern Putin-era Russia about a couple looking for their missing 12 year old son after a vicious divorce. A critique of Russia’s contemporary spiritual vacancy, using a toxic marriage to paint a larger portrait of decay, dereliction & moral detachment. Loveless means to shake you and it does.


11th October ‘18 – SICILIAN GHOST STORY
Dir: Fabio Grassadonia & Antonio Piazza – Italy

Italian drama blending true life crime, romance and fantasy. In 1993, 11 year old Guiseppe Di Matteo was abducted by the Sicilian mafia to silence his ex-mafia father who assisted authorities. The events changed how people thought about the Cosa Nostra. A dark fable which transforms Guiseppe into a guardian angel for his former girlfriend.


18th October ‘18 – JEUNE FEMME
Dir: Leonor Serraille – France

Superbly sympathetic & spikily comedic portrait of a young woman on the verge in Paris searching for an identity. Laetitia Dosch plays Paula, a ridiculous, rapturous 31 year old going through an extreme crisis after a break up; telling her story well with humour in an emotional, raw performance.


25th October ‘18 – LEAN ON PETE
Dir: Andrew Haigh – USA

Drama, adventure & a performance of remarkable depth and vulnerability by rising star Charlie Plummer in this moving American film by Scottish director Andrew Haigh. A teenager & his father arrive in Oregon; eager for a fresh start. While the father descends into personal turmoil, his son finds acceptance & camaraderie in his job caring for an aging racehorse named “Lean on Pete”. Based on Willy Vlautin’s novel, Steve Buscemi & Chloë Sevigny also star.


1st November ‘18 – MCQUEEN
Dir: Ian Bonhôut/ Peter Ettegué – UK

Documentary about the late British fashion designer & couturier Alexander McQueen. Through interviews with friends & family, recovered archives, visuals & music, McQueen is a celebration of an inspired yet tortured fashion visionary & a moving portrait of the isolation that comes with success. A compassionate take on his life works & a heartbreaking account of the incomplete life behind it.


8th November ’18 – FIRST REFORMED
Dir: Paul Schrader – USA

Mystery and drama from the writer of ‘Taxi Driver’ & ‘Bringing out the Dead’ starring Ethan Hawke as a pastor of a small church in upstate New York. When a pregnant parishioner (Amanda Seyfried) asks him to counsel her husband, a radical environmentalist, he finds himself plunged into his own tormented past, & equally despairing future.


15th November ‘18 – A FANTASTIC WOMAN
Dir: Sebastián Lelio – Chile

A funny, soulful & tender drama portraying the struggles of Marina, a trans woman whose life is thrown into turmoil following the death of her partner Orlando. Mourning the loss of the man she loved, Marina is forced to confront his family & society; fighting again to show them who she is.


22nd November ‘18 – COLD WAR
Dir: Pawel Pawlikowski – Poland

Polish drama set against the background of 1950’s Cold War; two very different people begin an almost impossible romance in impossible times. The torn curtain of love is the theme of this mysterious musically glorious and visually ravishing film. A passionate love story about two people fatally mismatched and yet fatefully condemned to each other.


29th November ‘18 – CUSTODY
Dir: Xavier Legrande – France

French drama awarded best film at the 2018 Audi Dublin International Film Festival; Legrande’s début feature following his Oscar-nominated short, ‘Just Before Losing Everything’. A frank depiction of a bitter custody battle between the divorced parents of a preteen boy gradually morphs into a tense study of domestic abuse, keeping audiences guessing & with their hearts in their throats.


6th December ’18 – THE RIDER
Dir: Chloé Zhao – USA

Drama serving an absorbing indie-realist slice of Americana: a tale of cowboys & bronco riders in South Dakota. A sombre study of the risks they face & stoically accept; a terrifying parable of the shortness of life. Brady Jandreau plays a young bronco rider recovering from a near fatal head injury; undertaking a search for new identity & what it means to be a man in the heartland of America.
