What’s on > Cinema

This week sees the release of Greed, a thinly veiled portrait of Philip Green with Steve Coogan in the title role and directed by Michael Winterbottom; Little Joe, the first English language feature from Austrian director Jessica Hausner; Midnight Family, an urgent, incredible documentary following the Ochoa family who operate an emergency ambulance service in Mexico City; and End of the Century, an inventive and enigmatic love story turned cosmic voyage with no clear beginning or end.

Films continuing: Four-time 2020 Academy Award winner Parasite, a superb black comedy from South Korean director Bong Joon-ho; The Personal History of David Copperfield, Armando Iannucci’s witty take on Charles Dickens’ autobiographical novel; The Lighthouse, Robert Eggers’ eerie thriller about isolation which was a big hit in our Film Fear Festival last year; Emma, a new version of Jane Austen’s beloved comedy about finding your equal and earning your happy ending; and First Love, an anarchic, blood-splattered full-throttle joyride set on a single night in Tokyo.

In addition, we have one-off screenings from The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2020/ Happiness is A State of Mind: Joy and Despair in Japanese Cinema.
