Boiling Point

On the busiest night of the year at one of the hottest restaurants in London, charismatic and commanding head chef Andy Jones balances along a knife's edge as multiple personal and professional crises threaten to destroy everything he's worked for. A surprise visit from a health and safety inspector sets the staff on edge as the overbooked hot spot fills with guests. Jones tries his best to diffuse tensions between management and crew while catering to the ridiculous demands of customers. Shot in a single take, in and out of a kitchen reaching boiling point.

Licorice Pizza

Licorice Pizza is the story of Alana Kane and Gary Valentine growing up, running around and falling in love in the San Fernando Valley, 1973. Gary (Cooper Hoffman) is a precocious high schooler and child star who meets - and is immediately besotted with - Alana (Alana Haim), a twenty-something photographer’s assistant trying desperately to find herself. The two of them form an unlikely bond, and soon begin running around the Valley together taking part in Gary’s many haphazard schemes.

Titane

Following on from her cannibal coming-of-ager Raw, Julia Ducournau clinched this year's Palme d'Or with Titane, a visceral body horror with strong Cronenberg overtones. It's best to go in with as little knowledge as possible, so suffice it to say that the film is about Alexia (Agathe Rousselle), who forms a strange relationship with metal objects after a titanium plate is inserted into her skull as a child. Titane contains sequences that may affect those with photosensitive epilepsy

The Tragedy of Macbeth

Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand star in Joel Coen’s bold, fierce and dazzlingly cinematic adaptation of Shakespeare’s Scottish play, a tale of murder, madness, ambition, and wrathful cunning and the original political thriller.

Belfast

A deliriously poignant and poetic series of memories inspired by writer-director Kenneth Branagh’s own childhood, Belfast takes place in 1969, when sectarian violence was breaking out in the streets of the Northern Irish capital, backing neighbours, friends and families into the corner of having to choose battle lines. This tumultuous time in history is seen through the eyes of 8-year-old Buddy (Jude Hill), who wants little more than to get through his schoolwork, love his family and figure out how to win the affections of his female classmates. With extraordinary performances from not just Hill but the likes of Jamie Dornan, Catriona Balfe, Judi Dench and Ciarán Hinds as the grown-ups in the room, not to mention a striking mix of colour and monochrome images, and a nostalgic soundtrack by Van Morrison, Belfast is a dramatic, funny and yearning family epic recalling the likes of Roma and Hope & Glory.

National Theatre Live: Leopoldstadt

Tom Stoppard's Olivier Award-winning new play Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance. At the beginning of the 20th century, Leopoldstadt was the old, crowded Jewish quarter of Vienna, Austria. But Hermann Merz, a factory owner and baptised Jew now married to Catholic Gretl, has moved up in the world. We follow his family's story across half a century, passing through the convulsions of war, revolution, impoverishment, annexation by Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. A company of 40 actors represent each generation of the family in this epic, but intimate play. Filmed live on stage in London's West End, 'Tom Stoppard's masterpiece is magnificent' (Independent) and should not be missed.

Jellied Reels presents: Diamantino

"But he said that nowadays there are no longer artists like Mr Michael Angelo. They no longer exists." A tongue in cheek tour through sports biopic, political satire, sci-fi experimentation and fluffy pink puppies. Diamantino is a burlesque genre mashup that a simple plot summary could nowhere near do justice. Riffing on an uncanny selection of the world's modern woes, Daniel Schmidt and Gabriel Abrantes' prize winning film will certainly kick the January blues into touch. Screening with surprise short film. @jelliedreels
