Place Beyond The Pines (2013) // Derek Cianfrance
A motorcycle stunt rider (Ryan Gosling) turns to robbing banks as a way to provide for his lover and their newborn child, a decision that puts him on a collision course with an ambitious rookie cop (Bradley Cooper) navigating a department ruled by a corrupt detective. Beautifully shot in melancholic tones, this thrilling and powerful drama touches on themes of fatherhood, guilt and redemption. Stream now on

Front Of House: Jamie Andrews

Ingrid Goes West (2017) // Matt Spicer
Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza) is an unhinged social media stalker with a history of confusing “likes” for meaningful relationships. Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen) is an Instagram-famous “influencer” whose perfectly curated lifestyle becomes Ingrid’s latest obsession. When Ingrid moves to LA and manages to insinuate herself into the social media star’s life, things soon take a darker turn. An award-winner at Sundance, Matt Spicer's Ingrid Goes West is a savagely dark comedy that gleefully satirises the modern world of social media.

The Five: The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper (2019) // Hallie Rubenhold

EIFF Documentary Programme Consultant: Rohan Crickmar 
"This is a brilliant – and very readable – work of social history, that brings into view, in all of their humanity, five women hitherto obscured by time and patriarchal priority. These are stories that take us to unexpected places (Sweden, Paris, Wolverhampton, middle-class Buckinghamshire), with each one serving to illuminate various different facets of Victorian life. It’s one of the most humane and vital books I’ve read, and one that sets out a clear agenda for how narrative history can be used to bring the dead vividly back to life."
By Nathan Garden

Nathan Garden from our Front of House team breaks down the classic 'Western' genre, discussing it's history, heyday, subsequent revivals and where it may have become lost through time.

This American Life - Episode 697: Alone Together

"Both of these are great shows, bringing their consoling, interest based reporting to cover Covid-19 in these specific episodes. Not about film, but great if you're stuck at home right now."
