Islands and Whales 

Mike Day  UK/ Denmark  81m  documentary

A strongly environmental film which objectively and without judgment portrays whale hunting in the Faroes and those who try to stop it but the big story is really about oceanic pollution. A subtle, beautiful and deeply moving portrayal of a community threatened by outside forces although not in the way you at first imagine.

François Ozon  France/Germany  PG  113m  2016    drama history romance war

The Breadwinner

Nora Twomey  PG  124m  2017  animation drama

Angelina Jolie and the creators of The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea bring us this film about Parvana, an 11-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001 who dresses like a boy in order to support her family.  Thrilling and enchanting, this is a luminously animated tale about the power of stories to sustain hope and carry us through dark times.

Nominated for an Oscar. Another 14 wins & 46 nominations.

The Man Who Invented Christmas

Bharat Nalluri   Ireland/Canada  104m  2017    Biography, comedy, drama

Tells the story of how Dickens came to write A Christmas Carol.

In 1843 Charles Dickens is at a low point in his career with three flops behind him and his family expenses piling up. He decides to write a Christmas story and self-publish it in less than two months. As he labors writing at short notice, his estranged father and mother come to visit. Still haunted by painful memories of his father ruining his childhood by his financial irresponsibility, Dickens struggles for inspiration against his frustrations and his characters' opinions and creates a classic tale that would define the essential soul of our modern Christmas.
