Eternal Beauty

When Jane (Sally Hawkins) is jilted on her wedding day, she has a breakdown and spirals into a chaotic world where love and family relationships collide with both touching and humorous consequences.

Fire Will Come

This award-winning Spanish drama tells the story of a man who, after serving prison time on charges of arson, returns home to live with his elderly mother in the mountains of rural Galicia.

The Mole Agent

In this Oscar-nominated documentary, when a family becomes concerned about their mother's wellbeing in a retirement home, private investigator Romulo hires Sergio, an 83 year-old man, to go undercover as a new resident and mole inside the home.

The Racer

This fictional story about a Tour de France support rider, who secretly harbours a desire to wear the yellow jersey just once before his career is over, is set against the real circumstances of the 1998 event, which was dogged by doping scandals.


Summerland follows the story of fiercely independent folklore investigator, Alice (Gemma Arterton) who secludes herself in her clifftop study, debunking myths using science to disprove the existence of magic. Consumed by her work, but also profoundly lonely, she is haunted by a love affair from her past.

When spirited young Frank (Lucas Bond), an evacuee from the London Blitz, is dumped into her irritable care, his innocence and curiosity awaken Alice’s deeply buried emotions. Bravely embracing life’s miraculous unpredictability, Alice learns that wounds may be healed, second chances do occur, and that, just perhaps – magic really does exist.

Talking About Trees

Four retired Sudanese filmmakers, idealists and friends for over 45 years, are reunited after a long period of distance and exile, as they attempt to bring back cinema to the people of their homeland.
