The Duke of Burgundy
From Friday 27th February

THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY is a dark melodrama from Peter Strickland, the award-winning writer/director of 2012’s Giallo-inspired BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO. Cynthia and Evelyn love each other.

Evelyn’s obsession quickly becomes an addiction that pushes their relationship to breaking point.

Testament of Youth
From Sunday 01st March
UK, 2014, 129mins, 12A

First published in 1933 – and rediscovered by a generation of feminists in the 1970s – Vera Brittain’s TESTAMENT OF YOUTH is an autobiographical account of the devastation wreaked by World War I. Spirited Vera breaks free from the conventions of her class and gender to go to Oxford, only to have her brother and fiancé torn from her by the outbreak of war. She follows them to the front where, as a field nurse, she experiences the horror of war first hand. TESTAMENT OF YOUTH is not just a heart-breaking love story, but also a corrective to the myth that only men fight wars.

Appropriate Behaviour
From Friday 06th March
UK, 2014, 90mins, cert TBC

Shirin is struggling to become an ideal Persian daughter, a politically aware bisexual and hip young Brooklynite. When she fails miserably in her attempt at all identities and is dumped by her girlfriend Shirin moves in with bunch of pretentious artists, gets a job teaching filmmaking to five-years-olds, and employs a series of ill-advised schemes in an effort to win back her love. APPROPRIATE BEHAVIOUR is an intelligent, funny and painfully believable comedy that heralds an exciting new voice in cinema on both sides of the camera. A must see in this time of large scale awards contenders.

White God
From Friday 06th March
HU/DE/SE, 2014, 119mins, 15

Winner of the Un Certain Regard Prize at the 2014 Cannes Festival, Kornel Mundruczó’s newest film is a story of the indignities visited upon animals by their supposed human superiors, but it’s also a brutal, beautiful metaphor for the political and cultural tensions sweeping contemporary Europe. When young Lili is forced to give up her beloved dog Hagen because its mixed-breed heritage is deemed “unfit” by The State, she and the dog begin a dangerous journey back towards each other. At the same time, all the unwanted, unloved and so-called “unfit” dogs rise up under a new leader, Hagen, the one time house pet who has learned all too well from his “Masters” in his journey through the streets and animal control centres how to bite
the hands that beats him.

Still Alice
From Friday 13th March
US, 2014, 101mins, 12A

Alice Howland, happily married with three grown children, is a renowned linguistics professor who starts to forget words. When she receives a devastating diagnosis of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, Alice and her family find their bonds thoroughly tested. Her struggle to stay connected to who she once was is frightening, heartbreaking and inspiring.

Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter
From Friday 13th March
US, 2014, 105mins, cert TBC

Rinko Kikuchi (NORWEGIAN WOOD) gives a disarmingly affecting central performance in this sweet and funny character study of a young woman who sets out on a journey in the belief that a VHS of FARGO will lead her to a large case of money. A film about cinephilia as well as the disconnect between reality and the fantasy world of movies, Zellner’s remarkably confident follow-up to 2012’s KID-THING combines the wit and warmth of the Coens with a melancholy streak entirely its own.

Last year over 600 films were released in the UK. (That’s a lot, right?) Some of these films are fantastically bombastic, with equally bombastic marketing campaigns to boot. However not all new releases can afford to appear on the side of double-decker buses, and as a result many can pass by unnoticed.

That’s why we have Tuesday Wonders! This is our way of highlighting those hidden gems, films that are exciting, important, sometimes a little bit different, but definitely worth seeing. So keep an eye out for what’s showing here every Tuesday, and don’t forget to pick up a loyalty card too, which gets you in for free for every four that you see.
