Woman at War

Director/Country  Benedict Erlingsson  Iceland/France/Ukraine  2018  101 mins  Unrated  Adventure, Comedy, Drama

Halla, a woman in her forties, declares war on the local aluminum industry to prevent it from disfiguring her country. She risks all she has to protect the highlands of Iceland. This is a political thriller, a comedy with surreal overtones, an eco-action film. But foremost it is about the indomitable spirit of one woman who will have to make hard choices.

Highly rated - over 25 film festival awards.

Pond Life

Directed by Bill Buckhurst, written by Richard Cameron, produced by Dominic Dromgoole   UK   2018   100 mins    Cert 15   Drama

At first this is an idyllic, slice-of-life drama about the joys of a long, hot, pre-social media mining village summer spent chasing a fishy legend which winds through stories of broken families, loss, growing pains and love in a beautiful and genuine way that isn’t often seen in much script writing. The initial naivety seems upbeat and light-hearted, only to turn into something more significant as secrets are gently revealed. Pond Life shows that amid the mundanity of everyday life there are shining moments, and a good deal of humour. A wonderful performance by Esme Creed-Miles as the emotionally unusual and fragile Pogo is at the heart of the film – we’ll be seeing more of her.
