Astrid

A film from Pernille Fischer Christensen

From Pippi Longstocking to Ronja Räubertochter to Michel from Lönneberga: no other name is so inextricably linked to so many fascinating children’s books as Astrid Lindgren’s. Her own childhood, however, ended early, when Astrid became pregnant illegitimately at the age of 18 – a scandal in Sweden in the 1920s. The film is a sensitive portrayal of how young Astrid finds the courage to overcome the hostility of her environment and to lead a free, self-determined life as a modern woman.

In cinemas: 6th December 2018

 


 

The Old Man and The Gun

A film with Robert Redford

In his last movie as an actor, Oscar-winning actor Robert Redford takes on the role of an ageing bank robber and tells the incredible but true story of his countless prison outbreaks. Directed by David Lowery and with award-winning performances from Hollywood greats Robert Redford and Sissy Spacek, The Old Man & The Gun brings an old genre back to life.

In cinemas: 31st January 2019

 


Loro (AT)

A Film from Paolo Sorrentino

In Loro (AT), La Grande Bellezza director Paolo Sorrentino focuses on former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi (Toni Servillo) and his political leadership. The Oscar-winner turns his visually stunning style to modern Italy of the 2000s; the film brims with intoxicatingly raucous parties but also moments of intimacy and sentimentality.

In cinemas: 15th November 2018

Cannes award-winning drama, GIRL, follows 15 year-old Lara in her dream to become a ballerina. Alongside her gruelling Ballet-Training, the teenager – born in the body of a boy – undertakes hormone therapy and pushes herself to her physical limits.
