SAVE THE DAVID LEAN CINEMA CAMPAIGN
November 2016 films at the David Lean Cinema
Thursday 17th 2.30PM and 7.30pm Notorious (1946, USA, 101 mins) cert. U
Director: Alfred Hitchcock Stars: Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, Claude Rains. Along with Casablanca, Notorious is the film that assures Ingrid Bergman’s immortality. Set in the Rio of 1946, she plays Alicia Huberman, a woman whose ‘notorious’ reputation encourages US agent Devlin (Grant) to recruit her to infiltrate the Nazi spy ring led by Sebastian (Rains). Bergman is perfectly cast, while Hitchcock’s writing and direction are at their best. The plot is ingenious, but very much ‘of its time’ – film historians speculate whether the villains of the piece would have been communists rather than Nazis had the it been written 6 months later. The expert direction also manages to smartly sidestep the Hays Code restriction (no kiss shall last more than 3 seconds) to get a 3 minute smooch onto the screen. And Hitchcock’s trademark, precisely choreographed visuals ratchet up the tension.
Tuesday 22nd 2,30pm & 7.30pm I, Daniel Blake (2016, UK/Fr/Bel, 100 mins) cert. 15
Director: Ken Loach Stars: Dave Johns, Hayley Squires, Sharon Percy. The pressures of making recent David Lean presentation Jimmy’s Hall had led to Ken Loach becoming (at least semi-)retired. But an unexpected (even by the winner) election result in 2015 and the prospect of 5 years of unconstrained austerity is credited (in the recent BBC documentary ‘Versus’) with bringing him back – to give us I, Daniel Blake. (Shades of David Bowie’s 1971 ‘Song for Bob Dylan’?) Recovering from a major heart attack Blake, a carpenter in the North East of England is struggling to come to terms with the bureaucracy of the modern welfare system. This leads him into contact with Katie, a single mother of two who is also encountering problems, having been relocated 300 miles north from her London homeless hostel and conflict with the system.
Wednesday 23rd 7.30pm Thursday 24th 2.30pm & 7.30pm The Girl on the Train (2016, USA) cert. 15
Director: Tate Taylor. Stars: Emily Blunt, Rebecca Ferguson, Haley Bennett. This mystery-thriller-drama is based on Paula Hawkins’ best-selling novel, transplanted to upstate New York. Recently divorced Rachel (Blunt) – ‘the girl on the train’ – commutes daily past her old house where her ex lives with his new wife (Ferguson). She also observes – and fantasises about – the seemingly perfect couple she sees from the train living close to her former house. But as her train passes by one morning, she observes something disturbing that fills her with rage. As the plot develops it emerges that Rachel has problems and is not the most reliable witness – or person. Nevertheless she becomes entangled in a missing persons case that promises to change the lives of everyone involved.
Tuesday 29th 7.30pm Burn Burn Burn (2015, UK) cert. 15
Director: Chanya Button. Stars: Laura Carmichael, Chloe Pirrie, Jack Farthing, Alison Steadman. Dan (Farthing, seen at the David Lean in The Riot Club and currently on a small screen near you as the scheming George Warleggan in Poldark) is a party animal who has died too young. But he has bequeathed his good friends Seph (Carmichael) and Alex (Pirrie) a memory stick containing a series of hilarious, painfully frank video messages sending them on a road trip in a battered Volvo estate. Not so much a back-seat driver as a mystical presence wedged into the glove compartment, Dan orders them to drive around Britain, to scatter his ashes in places dear to his heart. This daring, female-centric road movie — a 2015 London Film Festival audience favourite — is supported by cameo appearances from some great British comic talent. But the excellent Pirrie and Carmichael (a long way from Lady Edith in Downton Abbey) are the true driving forces of a crackling, life-affirming voyage of self-discovery.
Wednesday 30th 2.30pm & 7.30pm Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words (2015,Sweden, 115 mins) cert. PG
Director: Stig Björkman. Features: Ingrid Bergman, Roberto Rossellini, Isabella Rossellini, Alicia VikanderA fascinating insight – using her own letters (voiced by Alicia Vikander) and home movies – into the life and times of Ingrid Bergman. Her stardom and the toll it imposed. The film follows Bergman’s largely successful Hollywood career of the 1940s, her near ostracism after her trip to Italy with realist director Robert Rossellini, and her return to respectability in the 1950s. It dives deep into the life of this beautiful and endlessly determined actress, indulging in a rich archive of Bergman’s life with photos, home movies and letters on display. Her allure seeps through the entire film, revealing “a woman who was able to subtly combine the noble and the carnal” (critic Roger Ebert).Tickets for November on Sale 6th December
