The Irishman (15)

Who killed Jimmy Hoffa? A labour leader and the infamous head of the Teamsters union, whose connections with organised crime were wide ranging, his career ended with a conviction for jury tampering, attempted bribery and fraud, but he was pardoned by President Nixon in 1971. Not long after, he disappeared. Declared legally dead in 1982, various theories have circulated as to what happened to him.

Presented through the prism of Sheeran’s (De Niro) memories of his criminal past, the film uses state-of-the art visual effects to ‘de-age’ the cast from their 70s through their 30s. The seamless (and astonishing) postproduction allows Scorsese to bring together a favoured megawatt cast, all on exceptional form: the former Goodfellas pairing of De Niro and Joe Pesci (out of retirement here for Scorsese), alongside Harvey Keitel, Stephen Graham, Anna Paquin, Jesse Plemons, Bobby Cannavale and Ray Romano. Al Pacino, appearing for the first time in a Scorsese film, gives a performance as Jimmy Hoffa so good you’ll want to watch scenes again straight away, not least the many two-handers with Pacino’s Hoffa and De Niro’s Irishman Sheeran, whose friendship forms the heart of the film.

"Prepare for fireworks. With this unmissable crime epic, you'll be watching Scorsese at the peak of his powers directing acting giants De Niro, Pacino and Pesci and creating the movie event of the year." Rolling Stone

Meeting Gorbachev (PG)

Werner Herzog and André Singer’s riveting documentary, filled with unforgettable archive materials and based on three long interviews, provides incredible access to, arguably, the world’s greatest living politician.

Now 87 and battling illness, the visionary Mikhail Gorbachev, former General Secretary of the U.S.S.R, has mellowed and slowed down. Still, gently but resolutely, he is pushing towards his goals. Herzog, as on-screen interviewer, does not disguise his affection, celebrating Gorbachev’s three remarkable accomplishments: negotiations with the U.S. to reduce nuclear weapons; cessation of Soviet control of Eastern Europe and the reunification of Germany; and the dissolution of the Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc. All of this in six years!

One German diplomat sums up Gorbachev’s approach: “The process went so quickly that ... opponents were overcome by the reality of the situation.” Herzog and Singer remind us of the drastic and unforeseeable way the world changes.

NT Live: Fleabag (15)

Director: Vicky Jones

Starring: Phoebe Waller-Bridge

Duration: 100 min

See the award-winning one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series Fleabag, broadcast live to cinemas from London’s West End.

Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (TV's Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, Fleabag is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life.

Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.

Marriage Story (15)

Divorce is described in Noah Baumbach’s masterful Marriage Story as like a death without a body. Something has been lost. There is grieving, anger, denial.

In his personal and moving story, Baumbach captures the insidious nature of divorce, how two well-meaning people who still care about each other will do things they would never think they would do. Surely, you’re not the kind of person who would use secrets as a weapon in a divorce case? You wouldn’t turn a child against a parent to gain an advantage? It’s other people who do stuff like that.

With stunning performances from Adam Driver (Charlie) and Scarlett Johansson (Nicole), this is a new career watermark for both, repaying Baumbach’s trust in them with emotional and complex work. They’re good throughout, but they each get a “scene” on their own—a background speech from Nicole when she first goes to Nora and a breathtaking one from Charlie at a bar near the end—and a scene together, the big fight that we never think will happen with our partners. The one where we say what we shouldn’t say. The one where things change forever!

The Dirty War On The NHS (15)

The Dirty War on the NHS is the new documentary from renowned BAFTA and Emmy-winning film-maker and journalist John Pilger.

"This film is a tribute to a unique institution," says Pilger at the start of Dirty War, which is about threatened democracy.

Above all, it is a warning. Pilger investigates the dismantling "by stealth" of the National Health Service, "a last bastion of true public service".

"Under our noses, often secretly and deceptively, our National Health Service is being undermined and sold off: piece by precious piece to the likes of Richard Branson and the giant American health insurance companies that are at the root of the misery that is American healthcare." John Pilger

The Street + Q&A (15)

Some of the businesses on Hoxton Street have been around for over a hundred years. But recent times have witnessed an explosion of coffee shops, art spaces and property development. Sound familiar?

The locals feel the exclusion of being priced out, and wonder who’s to blame, while Cameron’s EU referendum looms in the background. Xenophobia is tangible; and with a new working space offering colourful ball-pit baths, the disconnect between the new creatives and the local community seems irreconcilable. From 82-year-old Colleen, to the couple who met as teens working in the pie shop they now run, everyone is feeling a storm coming.

Directed by Zed Nelson, THE STREET focuses on one street and its inhabitants over a four-year period, and set against the upheavals of rapid gentrification, years of austerity, the fallout from Grenfell and the eruption of Brexit, the film offers a revealing portrait of life in London today.

After the screening, we're delighted to be joined by director Zed Nelson & Errol McKellar, who is the garage shop owner in the film. The Q&A will be hosted by producer Kiran Acharya, who has worked with director Paul Sng on Dispossession - The Great Social Housing Swindle and Invisible Britain - Portraits Of Hope And Resilience.

For besieged civilians, hope and safety lie underground inside the subterranean hospital known as the Cave, where pediatrician and managing physician Dr. Amani Ballor and her colleagues Samaher and Dr. Alaa have claimed their right to work as equals alongside their male counterparts, doing their jobs in a way that would be unthinkable in the oppressively patriarchal culture that exists above.

Following the women as they contend with daily bombardments, chronic supply shortages and the ever-present threat of chemical attacks, The Cave paints a stirring portrait of courage, resilience and female solidarity.

Angela Carter’s great last novel in this brand new theatre production. A big, bawdy tangle of

theatrical joy and heartbreak, Wise Children is a celebration of show business, family,

forgiveness and hope, with a generous dash of Shakespeare, scandal and mischief, taking

river are celebrating their 75th birthday. Over the river in Chelsea, their father and greatest actor of his generation Melchior Hazard turns 100 on the same day. As does his twin brother

Fiddler: A Miracle Of Miracles (12A)

Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles is the first in-depth documentary to chronicle the origin story behind one of Broadway’s most beloved musicals, Fiddler on The Roof, and its creative roots in early 1960s New York, when “tradition” was on the wane as gender roles, sexuality, race relations and religion were evolving.

The film reveals why the story of Tevye the milkman is reborn again and again as beloved entertainment and cultural touchstone the world over. Opening in 1964, Fiddler on the Roof held the record for the longest running musical for almost 10 years, won nine Tony Awards, and spawned five Broadway revivals.

Featuring Lin-Manuel Miranda, Sheldon Harnick, Hal Prince, Austin Pendleton, Joanna Merlin, Danny Burstein, Itzhak Perlman, Charles Isherwood, Harvey Fierstein and many more!

"The heart of "Fiddler" is family, and the film really touches on the meaning of family -- where not everything is pretty, and not everyone gets along, yet there's a connective tissue that offers a warm embrace to the audience." Yolanda Machado, The Wrap

Citizen K (TBC)

Multiple award-winning documentarian Alex Gibney returns with a fascinating exploration of the contemporary Russian political landscape and a portrait of oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky.

Mikhail Khodorkovsky is charismatic and mercurial. It’s not difficult to see why Alex Gibney chose him as the focus of his new film, Citizen K. After thriving in Russia in the 1990s and amassing incredible wealth from the oil industry, Khodorkovsky became a nuisance to Vladimir Putin, who subsequently had him jailed in Siberia for ten years.

Now living in exile in the UK, he orchestrates a far-reaching anti-Putin campaign. Through this story, Gibney charts Putin’s rise to power, the golden years of the oligarchs and an era of gangster capitalism, combining archive footage and interviews with various journalists and Khodorkovsky himself.

Unfolding like a gripping political thriller, Citizen K is an urgent and topical account of a culture dominated by fake news and the rise of Russia’s alleged meddling in politics beyond its borders.

The Kingmaker (TBC)

When The Kingmaker director Lauren Greenfield began making what would become her latest film, she intended to investigate what had become of the island in the Philippines, Calauit, that had become a reserve for endangered African animals in the mid-1970s.

She thought that the country’s former first lady, Imelda Marcos, would be just one interview of many in her investigation of the island. But Greenfield found an eager and compelling subject ready to share her life story — or at least her version of it.

The Kingmaker examines, with intimate access, the Marcos family’s improbable return to power in the Philippines. The film explores the disturbing legacy of the Marcos regime and chronicles Imelda’s present-day push to help her son, Bongbong, win the vice-presidency. To this end, Imelda confidently rewrites her family’s history of corruption, replacing it with a narrative of a matriarch’s extravagant love for her country.

In an age when fake news manipulates elections, Imelda’s comeback story serves as a dark fairy tale.

Notorious (U)

Don’t miss this new 4K Digital Restoration of Notorious, one of Hitchcock’s most critically acclaimed films for both its romantic as well as its narrative maturity.

Two of the most iconic and powerful stars of their day pair up in Hitchcock’s post-war spy thriller, film noir – with just a dash of screwball dialogue and some serious romance – and the results are electric. Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant star as Alicia and Devlin; a woman whose father was a convicted Nazi spy, and who hopes to make reparations for his crimes against the US by engaging in espionage herself, at the behest of a handsome government agent who also just so happens to be falling in love with her. Her mission is to seduce a Nazi conspirator named Alexander (Claude Rains), but things get complicated when he too falls head over heels.

Notorious is a defining notch on his well-earnt strapline as the master of suspense. An official selection of the 1946 Cannes Film Festival, Notorious was one of the biggest US film releases of that year and has become infamous for its clever evasion of the Motion Picture Production Code’s restriction on screen kissing. Limited in Hollywood to three seconds at the time, Hitchcock had the characters pull away every three seconds, nuzzling each other only to resume kissing, for a total of two-and-a-half-minutes

Pain And Glory (15)

Long-time Almodóvar leading man Antonio Banderas stars in Pain and Glory as Salvador Mallo, a director whose physical ailments have led into an almost hermit-like existence, before he is reunited with an actor from his past and embarks on a wild new chapter.

Pedro Almodóvar’s hotly anticipated, semi-autobiographic film takes you inside Salvador’s mind as he reflects on his personal and professional past. Via a series of flashbacks and present-day encounters, we revisit some of his most important relationships, with his mother (played by an on-form, disgruntled Penélope Cruz), his former leading man and his early loves.

Little Women (PG)

Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life.  

In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms --  is both timeless and timely.  Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbour Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.

Directed by: Greta Gerwig

Screenplay by: Greta Gerwig

Based on the Novel by: Louisa May Alcott

Jojo Rabbit (12A)

"It's Waititi's ability to balance unassailably goofy moments with an acknowledgment of real-life horrors that makes the movie exceptional."  Time Magazine
