  • Dorian Grey

    Oliver Parker’s adaptation of the classic Oscar Wilde novel has everything you’d want from a gothic bodice ripper; sex, gore, and darkly chiselled cheekbones. Young Dorian Grey wishes to stay young forever, and so binds himself in a deal with the devil to always retain his beautiful good looks. But what is the cost? This dark and smoky tale is a great warning against vanity everywhere However, amongst all the Burton-esque moody shots of Victorian England, the biting essence of Wilde’s classic story gets slightly lost.


  • BAFTA Nominations Announced

  • Easy Virtue

    You wouldn’t think pleasant comedic romps through the English countryside and Jessica Biel would go together, but somehow in this instance they do. Biel shines with charm and charisma, and Kristin Scott Thomas and Colin Firth are equally strong in supporting roles. Easy Virtue, as the title suggests, is a great night’s easy entertainment, a little gem of a comedy that you’re sure to enjoy more than you expected.


  • A Christmas Carol

    Call us crazy, but we thought Christmas was the time for good cheer? There’s not much to be cheerful about in this dark adaptation of the Dickens classic. With pacey action and good performances there is still something to enjoy, but if we’re honest, at Christmas we just want to leave the cinema with sleighbells in our ears and a smile on our faces.
