Chicago (2002) // Rob Marshall
Marketing Assistant: Ellie

"Nearing its 20th anniversary, the film adaptation of the hit musical Chicago is still as electrifying as it was on release two decades ago. Fuelled by the jazz, glitz and glam of the 1920s, follow Roxie and Velma as they commit mischief, mockery and murder all in the name of a good show."

Toni Erdmann (2016) // Maren Ade

Edinburgh Cinema Club: Isobel
"Ever wonder what it’d be like to have a prankster for a Dad? Not Ines, it’s why she keeps hers at a distance, that is until he surprises her with a spontaneous visit and new alter ego - Toni Erdmann. Maren Ade perfectly captures Ines’ deep embarrassment for Dad Winfried’s inappropriate behaviour alongside her human pull to his desperate acts."

Deep Red (1975) // Dario Argento

Front of House Supervisor: Becca

"Mesmerising thriller horror from director Dario Argento (Suspiria, Bird with the Crystal Plumage) bringing together a wild combination of graphic body horror and intense psychodrama. Not only is the story a complete rollercoaster of mystery and terror, it is all accompanied by a fantastically groovy jazz/funk soundtrack. If you love classic horror you'll love Deep Red!"

Rocks (2019) (12) // Sarah Gavron
Education Recommends

One of the most celebrated British films of 2020, Rocks follows a young girl as she must care for herself and her younger brother. The film has been praised for its take on the coming-of-age genre and exceptional young cast. It offers a thoughtful portrayal of friendship - a film upper high school students will love!

The Suspicions of Mr Whicher or The Murder at Road Hill House // Kate Summerscale

Programme Officer: Raymah

"Mr Whicher was one of Scotland Yard’s first detectives, a man so ahead of his time when it came to observation he served as inspiration to Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins to name a few. The Murder at Road Hill House gripped a nation; a young boy so tragically murdered and an upper class family falling under suspect, Summerscale evokes the Victorian period so well that not only does this book serve as a true-crime account, but also as a history lesson for exploring the shifting societal attitudes at the time."
