Richard Jewell


In cinemas 13 February

 

“There is a bomb in Centennial Park. You have 30 minutes.” The world is first introduced to Richard Jewell as the security guard who reports finding the device at the 1996 Atlanta bombing – his report making him a hero whose swift actions save countless lives. But within days, the law enforcement wannabe becomes the FBI’s number one suspect. Reaching out to independent, anti-establishment attorney Watson Bryant, Jewell staunchly professes his innocence. But Bryant finds he is out of his depth as he fights the combined powers of the FBI, GBI and APD to clear his client’s name.
Directed by Clint Eastwood, the film stars Sam Rockwell, Kathy Bates, Jon Hamm and Olivia Wilde.

Just Mercy


In cinemas 23 January

 

Starring Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx and Brie Larson, this powerful and thought-provoking true story follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan might have had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley. One of his first and most incendiary cases is that of Walter McMillian, who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political manoeuvrings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds – and the system – stacked against them.

Bombshell


In cinemas 16 January

 

Starring Academy Award® winner Charlize Theron, Academy Award® winner Nicole Kidman, Academy Award® nominee Margot Robbie and Academy Award® nominee John Lithgow, and based on the real scandal, Bombshell is a revealing look inside the most powerful and controversial media empire of all time; and the explosive story of the women who brought down the infamous man who created it.

The Truth


In cinemas 26 December

 

Warmly compared to Olivier Assayas’ exquisite Summer Hours by multiple critics upon its Venice premiere, The Truth is a very special cinema experience. Starring Catherine Deneuve: a gentle, sly and moving exploration of reality and fiction, family, performance, and the great spectacle of life. It’s a love letter to mothers and daughters everywhere.

Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Marianne is a young painter in 18th century France, commissioned to do a wedding portrait of Héloïse without her knowing.
