Someone, Somewhere (2019) // Cédric Klapisch

Marketing Assistant: Ellie

"This is a love story, but not as you might think… Mélanie and Rémy’s Parisian apartments are separated by a single wall, the two strangers both letting their anxieties dominate their lonely city lives. This charmingly satisfying slow-burn turns traditional narratives on its head - when it finally arrives, the inevitable meet-cute is well worth the wait."

Sorry to Bother You (2018) // Boots Riley

Development Officer: Matt

"A hilarious, wild, completely unexpected takedown of false consciousness starring the always brilliant LaKeith Stanfield. It may seem overtly weird, but there is something scarily on-point in its diagnosis of our world. Best to go into this blind to fully enjoy its totally uninhibited twists and turns!"

Watch on Netflix
Mank (2020) // David Fincher
Edinburgh Cinema Club: Isobel
“It’s 1930s Hollywood, and the drunkenly sharp Herman J. Mankiewicz is sweatily racing to finish writing Citizen Kane. This isn’t Orson Welles's story - it's Mank’s, and Oldman shines as the bedraggled writer. 

Intriguingly exploring the Auteur, Author relationship, Mank is an astonishingly detailed love letter to Old Hollywood, filled with grit, glitz and deep-rooted corruption."

Nomadland // Jessica Bruder
Education and Learning Coordinatior: Chloe

"An equally fascinating and terrifying account of older Americans who suffer the casualties of the Great Recession. The access Bruder gets to this community is incredible and provides a much needed portray of modern day America. The book has just been adapted to screen by Chloe Zhao (The Rider) starring Frances McDormand. I'm a huge fan of Zhao's work so I can't wait to see the film when it comes out, hopefully next year.'' 

Many independent bookshops in Edinburgh will order in books in that you request - here's a great list of independent bookshops you can support!
Deck The Walls

Cinescapes are looking for family photographs and clips of Edinburgh at Christmastime for their Deck The Walls project, where they will project images in mystery locations. It’s a creative response to the Redrawing Edinburgh project, and hopes to remind people of happy times through shared memories.

 If you would like to share your photos or film clips, email them to
Deadline: Saturday 12 Dec
