A Late Quartet
Sat 07 Jun 2014 15:30
On the eve of a world renowned string quartet’s 25th anniversary season, their beloved cellist, Peter Mitchell (Christopher Walken), is diagnosed with the early symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease. When Peter announces he wishes to make the upcoming season his last, his three colleagues find themselves at a crossroad. Competing egos and uncontrollable passions threaten to derail years of friendship and collaboration. Robert Gelbart (Philip Seymour Hoffman), the quartet’s second violinist, announces his desire to alternate chairs with first violinist Daniel Lerner (Mark Ivanir), after years of sacrifice and peacemaking for the benefit of the group. Robert’s wife, violist Juliette Gelbart (Catherine Keener) has a particularly difficult time grappling with the tragic diagnosis, as Peter has served not only as a colleague, but as a dear father figure since childhood. When Juliette is unable to support her husband, their marriage is strained with a palpable tension that they can no longer ignore. Tossed into the maelstrom is their daughter Alexandra (Imogen Poots), a talented violinist in her own right. Like her father, she too decides to act on her desires. As the string quartet prepares to play Beethoven’s Opus 131 for what might be the members’ last concert together, the seven movements of the piece echo their own tumultuous journey. Writer Director Yaron Zilberman (WATERMARKS) A LATE QUARTET features incredibly moving performances from a cast including Christopher Walken, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener, Mark Ivanir and Imogen Poots.
PULP: A Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets + Satellite Q&A
Sat 07 Jun 2014 17:30
PULP A film about life, death & supermarkets… Sheffield, 1988, ‘The Day That Never Happened’. Following a disastrous farewell show in their hometown, PULP move to London in search of success. They find fame on the world stage in the 1990’s with anthems including ‘Common People’ and ‘Disco 2000’. 25 years (and 10 million album sales) later, they return to Sheffield for their last UK concert: what could go wrong? Giving a career best performance exclusive to the film, the band share their thoughts on fame, love, mortality – & car maintenance. Director Florian Habicht (Love Story) weaves together the band’s personal offerings with dream-like specially-staged tableaux featuring ordinary people recruited on the streets of Sheffield. Unveiling the deep affection that the inhabitants of Sheffield have for PULP, and the formative effect the town has had on the band’s music (& front-man Jarvis Cocker’s lyrics in particular) PULP is a music-film like no other – by turns funny, moving, lifeaffirming & (occasionally) bewildering.

For her to fall in love was forbidden; it was a sin, she was told. Her beauty, her poise, her desires and her longings were not her own.

She found that love, but not before heartbreak, humiliation, insults and snubs almost drove her to embrace death. She was… Kamal Amrohi’s PAKEEZAH. A classic of Indian cinema, starring the celebrated actress Meena Kumari in her last film, PAKEEZAH (aka Pure Of Heart) is lavish in its treatment of two courtesans’ turbulent stories.
