Comedy, Cert PG (1983)
Stars Burt Lancaster and Peter Capaldi
A US oil company intends building a large oil refinery in Scotland. To do so it will need to buy an entire town. The company sends a young, aggressive executive, Mac, to Scotland to negotiate with the locals. Things go smoothly until the owner of a particular piece of land, vital to the plan, refuses to sell.
Mac ultimately spends several weeks in Ferness, gradually adapting to the slower pace of life and getting to know the eccentric residents,most notably hotel owner and accountant Gordon Urquhart, and his wife Stella. As time passes, Mac becomes more and more conflicted as he presses to close the deal that will end the quaint little village he has come to love. Unbeknownst to him, however, the villagers are tired of their hard life and are more than eager to sell, though they feign indifference to induce a larger offer.

Stars Lola Campbell
The feature debut from 29-year-old Londoner Charlotte Regan, Scrapper brims with sugar-fuelled youthful energy and an itchy, endless scroll of ideas.
Everything that 12-year-old Georgie (impressive newcomer Lola Campbell) knows about family, she learned from her single mother. And that includes the knack of filling the space left by an absent parent. While her mother was alive, she was both mum and dad to her daughter. Now that she has died, Georgie has taken on the responsibility of parenting herself. Resourcefully pulling the wool over the eyes of social services with an invented uncle as a guardian, Georgie continues to live alone in the home she shared with her mum. She has a best friend, Ali (Alin Uzun); an income (earned through bike theft); and an idiosyncratic, fiercely guarded process of grieving. There’s one thing she doesn’t need in her life: the arrival of her overgrown kid of a father, Jason (Harris Dickinson).

The Old Oak
Stars Dave Turner
The Old Oak is a 2023 drama film directed by Ken Loach and written by Paul Laverty.
A northern pub landlord confronts locals’ hostility towards Syrian refugees in Loach’s latest – and possibly last – piece of politically trenchant cinema.
Continuing his socio-political focus, The Old Oak depicts another major issue: the plight of refugees. Set in 2016, it follows TJ Ballantyne (Dave Turner), a pub owner in a decaying former mining village in North-East England, who forms a friendship with a young Syrian woman Yara (Ebla Mari), when a community of Syrian refugees are moved into the area. TJ and Yara attempt to unite their disparate communities, and overcome xenophobia from the locals and the ensuing cultural clash.

A Haunting in Venice
stars Kenneth Branagh and Michelle Yeoh
Set in the post-World War II era, A Haunting In Venice finds Hercule Poirot retired and seeking solace in the hauntingly beautiful city of Venice.
However, his retirement is short-lived as he finds himself entangled in a mysterious case involving a séance gone wrong, a chilling murder, and a web of secrets waiting to be uncovered. A classic whodunit, true to the essence of Hercule Poirot mysteries, the film promises a complex plot filled with twists, turns, and red herrings that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats. Poirot’s unparalleled detective skills are put to the test as he navigates through the labyrinth of clues and deception to unveil the truth.

The Great Escaper
Stars Michael Caine and Glenda Jackson
A moving story and terrific performances from Caine and Glenda Jackson, in her final role, lift this melancholy real-life tale of a pensioner’s escapade in France.
Navy veteran Bernard Jordan (Michael Caine) missed the boat when it came to applying to attend the 70th anniversary of the D-day landings. But, encouraged by his wife, Rene (the late Glenda Jackson in her final role), he decides to make the trip under his own steam, absconding from his care home in Hove with his essentials in a blue plastic bag. The film is unexpectedly melancholic in approach, with Caine delivering a gruffly heartbreaking performance as a man belatedly confronting crippling survivor’s guilt and the knowledge that the psychological wounds sustained in battle never fully heal.
