11: "Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool". Certificate 15. Running
time 105 minutes. Biography / drama / romance. English. In 1979, a young Liverpudlian is blown away when a Hollywood starlet of 30 years ago
moves in next door to him. They hit it off instantly. The stars of the film
flesh out their deep characters and make their whirlwind romance and
subsequent low points all the more real.
April 8: "Under the Tree".
Certificate 15. Running time 89 minutes. Comedy / drama. Icelandic. The
film escalates the issue of one neighbour's tree casting shade on the
porch of the other, far beyond common sense, civility and the law
until the wacky conclusions. Complex characters are built and broken by
life's more significant twists and turns.
Societal angst in a fun and engaging way.
"The Rider". Certificate 15. Running time 105 minutes. Drama. English.
The film's director met a horse trainer and heard his story while
researching a project on a ranch in South Dakota. A former rodeo rider
and local hero, the young man could provide for his family until he was
thrown from his horse and kicked in the head. This became the
hard-hitting tale of self realisation on screen.
