Operation Mincemeat

Keswick Alhambra Cinema

In 1943 the Allies were determined to break Hitler’s grip on occupied Europe and plan an all-out assault on Sicily, but they faced an impossible challenge – how to protect a massive invasion force from potential massacre. It fell to two remarkable intelligence officers, Ewen Montagu (Colin Firth) and Charles Cholmondeley (Matthew Macfadyen), to dream up the most inspired and improbable disinformation strategy of the war - centred on the most unlikely of secret agents: a dead man. A true story, Operation Mincemeat is a worthy update to the 1956 film “The Man Who Never Was”(which was made before all the facts of the story had come to light).

Brian and Charles

Brian lives alone in a remote village in the countryside. Something of an outcast, he spends his spare time inventing things out of found objects in his garage. Without friends or family to rely on, Brian decides to build a robot for company. 'Charles' is not only Brian's most successful invention, but he appears to have a personality all of his own and quickly becomes Brian's best friend, curing his loneliness and opening Brian's eyes to a new way of living. However, Charles creates more problems than Brian bargained for, and the timid inventor has to face-up to several issues in his life; his eccentric ways, a local bully, and the woman he's always been fond of but never had the nerve to talk to.

Luzzu

Keswick Alhambra Cinema

A hardworking Maltese fisherman, Jesmark is faced with an agonizing choice. He can repair his leaky luzzu – a traditional, multicolored wooden fishing boat – in the hopes of eking out a meagre living at sea for his wife and newborn son, just as his father and grandfather did before him. Or he can decommission it in exchange for an EU payout and cast his lot with a sinister black-market operation that is decimating the Mediterranean fish population and the livelihoods of the local families who depend on it.

LUZZU won a Sundance Jury Prize for its nonprofessional lead actor Jesmark Scicluna, a real-life Maltese fisherman, and heralds the arrival of writer-director-editor Alex Camilleri. His gripping film operates in the neorealist tradition of Luchino Visconti, Roberto Rosselini, and the Dardenne brothers and calls to mind the work of his mentor Ramin Bahrani (Man Push Cart, The White Tiger), also a producer of the film.

Good Luck to You, Leo Grande

Keswick Alhambra Cinema

Nancy Stokes (Emma Thompson), a retired schoolteacher and widow, is yearning for some adventure, some human connection, and some sex. Good sex.

Whilst her husband Robert provided a home, a family, and something resembling a life, good sex was never on offer. But he’s gone now, and Nancy has a plan: she will find adventure with a sex worker named Leo Grande (Daryl McCormack). In an anonymous hotel room Nancy greets Leo. He looks every bit as good as his picture, but what Nancy wasn’t expecting was conversation as well as fornication.
Leo has a view on everything, and though he may not always tell the truth, Nancy finds she likes him. And he likes her. With growing sexual confidence, Nancy starts to relax. Over the course of three rendezvous, the power dynamics shift and their well-worn masks begin to slip.

Vortex

Keswick Alhambra Cinema

The latest feature from Gaspar Noé is a tender and undeniably powerful exploration of loneliness and love. Having debuted to widespread acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival, it focuses on an elderly couple (played by Françoise Lebrun and Dario Argento) who spend their days in a Paris apartment. Both love and care for each other, but are grappling with the early stages of dementia. Presented in split-screen, we follow the couple as they go about their daily routines both together and alone. As everyday tasks become more challenging, forgetfulness shifts to something more troubling and their son (Alex Lutz) struggles to care for them as they enter a vortex of mental and physical degeneration. Compelling and moving in equal measure, this is a departure for Noé – but in terms of scope and ambition, it is one of his finest works to date.

142 mins | Rated 15 (drug misuse) | Drama

Operation Mincemeat


Keswick Alhambra Cinema
04 July 2022

In 1943 the Allies were determined to break Hitler’s grip on occupied Europe and plan an all-out assault on Sicily, but they faced an impossible challenge – how to protect a massive invasion force from potential massacre. It fell to two remarkable intelligence officers, Ewen Montagu (Colin Firth) and Charles Cholmondeley (Matthew Macfadyen), to dream up the most inspired and improbable disinformation strategy of the war - centred on the most unlikely of secret agents: a dead man. A true story, Operation Mincemeat is a worthy update to the 1956 film “The Man Who Never Was”(which was made before all the facts of the story had come to light).

Luzzu


Keswick Alhambra Cinema
10 July 2022

A hardworking Maltese fisherman, Jesmark is faced with an agonizing choice. He can repair his leaky luzzu – a traditional, multicolored wooden fishing boat – in the hopes of eking out a meagre living at sea for his wife and newborn son, just as his father and grandfather did before him. Or he can decommission it in exchange for an EU payout and cast his lot with a sinister black-market operation that is decimating the Mediterranean fish population and the livelihoods of the local families who depend on it.

LUZZU won a Sundance Jury Prize for its nonprofessional lead actor Jesmark Scicluna, a real-life Maltese fisherman, and heralds the arrival of writer-director-editor Alex Camilleri. His gripping film operates in the neorealist tradition of Luchino Visconti, Roberto Rosselini, and the Dardenne brothers and calls to mind the work of his mentor Ramin Bahrani (Man Push Cart, The White Tiger), also a producer of the film.

95 mins | Rated 15 (strong language) | Drama

But he’s gone now, and Nancy has a plan: she will find adventure with a sex worker named Leo Grande (Daryl McCormack). In an anonymous hotel room Nancy greets Leo. He looks every bit as good as his picture, but what Nancy wasn’t expecting was conversation as well as fornication.

Vortex


Keswick Alhambra Cinema
07 August 2022

The latest feature from Gaspar Noé is a tender and undeniably powerful exploration of loneliness and love. Having debuted to widespread acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival, it focuses on an elderly couple (played by Françoise Lebrun and Dario Argento) who spend their days in a Paris apartment. Both love and care for each other, but are grappling with the early stages of dementia. Presented in split-screen, we follow the couple as they go about their daily routines both together and alone. As everyday tasks become more challenging, forgetfulness shifts to something more troubling and their son (Alex Lutz) struggles to care for them as they enter a vortex of mental and physical degeneration. Compelling and moving in equal measure, this is a departure for Noé – but in terms of scope and ambition, it is one of his finest works to date.

142 mins | Rated 15 (drug misuse) | Drama

Directed by Gaspar Noé | Starring Dario Argento, Alex Lutz, Françoise Lebrun, Laurent Aknin, Jean-Pierre Bouyxou, Philippe Rouyer

Having debuted to widespread acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival, it focuses on an elderly couple (played by Françoise Lebrun and Dario Argento) who spend their days in a Paris apartment. Both love and care for each other, but are grappling with the early stages of dementia. Presented in split-screen, we follow the couple as they go about their daily routines both together and alone. As everyday tasks become more challenging, forgetfulness shifts to something more troubling and their son (Alex Lutz) struggles to care for them as they enter a vortex of mental and physical degeneration. Compelling and moving in equal measure, this is a departure for Noé – but in terms of scope and ambition, it is one of his finest works to date.

142 mins | Rated 15 (drug misuse) | Drama

Directed by Gaspar Noé | Starring Dario Argento, Alex Lutz, Françoise Lebrun, Laurent Aknin, Jean-Pierre Bouyxou, Philippe Rouyer
