Factory Records, the Hacienda club, Tony Wilson, Happy Mondays, etc, etc. '24 Hour Party People' is an affectionate and humorous trip through Manchester's monster music scene in the 80s and 90s. The soundtrack as you'd expect is blinding and Steve Coogan's portrayal of Wilson is spooky. A film that stands on it's own as an excellent near tragi-comedy, but within its historical context... it's bloody mad!

A British made, 1950s epic charting the sinking of the unsinkable. On April 10th 1912, the luxury liner Titanic set sail on its maiden voyage. Four days later, it sank in just 2 hours 40 minutes, needlessly claiming the lives of 1,500 passengers and crew. Infinitely less glamourous than the contemporary Hollywood version, what it lacks in gloss it makes up for with no-nonsense, straightforward storytelling. Truth is, the hard facts are far more shocking than anything Tinseltown could come up wit find out more...
AMADEUS (1984)

An award winning film full of baroque splendour. The talented composer Antonio Salieri found himself in competition with Mozart, a genius, and he couldn't understand why God favored such a vulgar creature to be his instrument. Salieri turned into a hate-filled monster, whose aim in life became to ruin his colleague, but he emerges as a tragic and sympathetic character. He alone could appreciate the perfection of Mozart's music and, perhaps, he speaks up for all of us whose talents fall short of find out more...

Al Gore finds life after the politically crushing embarrassment that was his tenure as vice president and, frankly, it's unlikely he will experience another point as high as his achievement in this profound, engaging and, mercifully, clear documentary on the consequences of our complacent greed. That ĎAn Inconvenient Truth' provides little in the way of true revelations pertaining to the earth's (humanity's) looming ecological demise, and ignores some of the more profound problems of trapped car find out more...

Superb FX, slick direction and spot-on characterisation combine to make this a truly thrilling account of the jinxed 1970 Moon mission. OK, so we already know the story, but Ron Howard has triumphed with this tale of three men almost spaced-out forever in something resembling a hairdryer. find out more...
BACKBEAT (1993)

The story of Stuart Sutcliffe, the fifth Beatle, is the basis for this superior bio-pic. In 1960 the Fab 5 set off for Hamburg, where they discover that sex and drugs go hand in hand with rock n' roll. But when Stu falls in love with Astrid, his close friendship with John Lennon and indeed his whole future, is threatened. A brilliant film. find out more...

James M Barrie is a lonely man, in a failing marriage, and a playwright whose work has seen better days. When Barrie meets a group of children in the park he finds himself enchanted, and it is not long before he has settled deep within the bosom of their family life, a loving matriarchy held together by the children's young widowed mother. Finding Neverland is based on the play by Allan Knee, and is a tender, deeply moving interpretation of Barrie's inspiration for "Peter Pan". Beautifully perf find out more...

Goodnight And Good Luck takes place during the early days of broadcast journalism in 1950s America, chronicling the real-life conflict between television newsman Edward R Murrow and Senator Joseph McCarthy, head of the House Un-American Activities Committee. Murrow, his news team and, indeed, CBS itself made a defiant and impassioned stand against McCarthy's increasingly delusional, corrupt and fear-fueled rants and this, George Clooney's second turn in the director's chair, is a beautifully suc find out more...
