Us

After sending shockwaves across the film industry and setting a new standard for provocative, socially-conscious horror films with his directorial debut, Get Out, Academy Award winner Jordan Peele returns with Us.

Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave) plays Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe (Winston Duke, Black Panther), and their two children for a summer getaway.

Haunted by a mysterious trauma from her past, something made worse by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia rise as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to happen to her family.

After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (inc. Elisabeth Moss), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway…

Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.

Benjamin

Simon Amstell's affecting, bittersweet comedy tells the story of Benjamin, a rising star filmmaker, who is on the brink of premiering his difficult second film ‘No Self’. He has been too long in the edit.

On the eve of the premiere at the London Film Festival, he is introduced to a mesmeric French singer called Noah. As they journey through a contemporary London of vegan restaurants, comedy clubs and avant-garde dance, they slowly manoeuvre themselves and each other towards love.

Set among the back streets of East and North London, Benjamin is a drama-comedy about feeling isolated and struggling for connection.

Everybody Knows

A painful and powerfully acted kidnap thriller from Iranian writer and director Asghar Farhadi (A SEPARATION). Gathered together for a wedding in rural, wine-growing Spain, a family receive a devastating blow which mercilessly exposes past secrets and gaping old wounds in the history of a small community. Anchored by three heavyweight performances from Penélope Cruz, Javier Bardem and Ricardo Darín, this makes for compelling psychological mystery drama in which nobody is above suspicion.

Border

From the writer of Let the Right One In comes a mesmerising and genre-defying dark fairytale set in modern-day Sweden.

Tina is a customs agent with a nose for trouble. She can literally smell human emotions, which is a handy talent for sniffing out suspicious border crossers. But when a mysterious male traveler’s odour confounds her, she’s faced with hugely disturbing insights about who she is and what she wants.

Academy Award nominated and winner of Un Certain Regard at Cannes 2018, Border is like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

The Kindergarten Teacher

Maggie Gyllenhaal’s performance commands this unsettling thriller about a woman obsessed. Unsatisfied by family life and by her work, she craves to become a celebrated poet, yet finds herself lacking.

But when one of her pupils shows himself to be a poetic prodigy, her interest takes on dark overtones. Equally mentoring and manipulating, we can only watch as the plot’s screws get ever tighter.

Sara Colangelo’s reimagining of the 2014 Israeli film is a showcase for Gyllenhaal as a fully realised, complex woman.

Pitchblack Playback: Floating Points 'Late Night Tales'

Join us as Pitchblack Playback host the world premiere of Floating Points’ addition to the hallowed Late Night Tales compilation series. Hear this stunning 17-track collection loud, in full, in the dark from the comfort of one of our cosy armchairs.

Tickets available as well as ticket + limited edition white double LP vinyl bundles.

Floating Points’ personal collection of global soul, ambient, jazz and folk treasures form the latest in the warmly revered Late Night Tales series.

Sam Shepherd aka Floating Points’ music taste is notoriously tricky to define, ranging from ethereal classical at one end to coruscating techno at the other, united only in a firm belief in the transcendental power of music to move hearts, minds and – yes – feet. Similarly, his production career has ranged from early experiments in dance music with breakout records such as the ‘Shadows EP’ and collaborating with legendary Gnawa master Mahmoud Guinia to his expansive album ‘Elaenia’, which met with critical acclaim upon its release in 2015.

This Late Night Tales excursion into the depths of the evening reflects his broad tastes. The globally-travelled producer has collected untold treasures on his travels from dusty stores in Brazil to market stalls near his hometown. There’s the gorgeous ‘Via Làctea’, culled from Carlos Walker’s debut album, Abu Talib’s (Bobby Wright) plaintive ‘Blood Of An American’ and Robert Vanderbilt’s gospel reworking of Manchild’s ‘Especially For You’. Raw soul and feeling oozing from each song’s pores.

At the other end of the music scale are the modernists, such as Québécoise Kara-Lis Coverdale who weighs in with the indelible ‘Moments In Love’, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith whose ‘Milk’ is an exercise in tranquility, while Sarah Davachi’s meditative mix-opener offers respite from a weary world.

”I’ve learnt about a lot of incredible music from listening to the Late Night Tales compilations over the years, so I jumped at the opportunity to compile one myself. The music is a selection of the kind of records I play to set the tone when DJing all night long.”

NT Live: All About Eve

Gillian Anderson (X-Files, NT Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) and Lily James (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) lead in All About Eve, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London.

All About Eve tells the story of Margo Channing. Legend. True star of the theatre. The spotlight is hers, always has been. But now there’s Eve. Her biggest fan. Young, beautiful Eve. The golden girl, the girl next door. But you know all about Eve…don’t you…?

Ivo van Hove directs this new stage version with set and lighting design from Jan Versweyveld, costume design by An D’Huys and music from double Mercury Prize-winner PJ Harvey, alongside Tom Gibbons’ sound design. Casting is by Julia Horan CDG.

Photographs: Gillian Anderson by Pari Dukovic and Lily James by Perou. Design: Bob King Creative.

NT Live: All My Sons

Broadcast live from The Old Vic in London, Academy Award-winner Sally Field (Steel Magnolias, Brothers & Sisters) and Bill Pullman (The Sinner, Independence Day) star in Arthur Miller’s blistering drama All My Sons.

America, 1947. Despite hard choices and even harder knocks, Joe and Kate Keller are a success story. They have built a home, raised two sons and established a thriving business.

But nothing lasts forever and their contented lives, already shadowed by the loss of their eldest boy to war, are about to shatter. With the return of a figure from the past, long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.
