A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood
Based on a true story, a children's entertainer is targeted by a cynical journalist assigned to write a biopic of him. But kindness and decency triumph in a bewitchingly disarming and subtle way, forcing the journalist to confront his own demons and to get his life back on track.

Pain & Glory
This semi-autobiographical film tells the story of an ageing film director, sick and alone, unable to do any creative work. He looks back over his life, from his impoverished childhood to the highs and lows of his career. Antonio Banderas and a luminous Penélope Cruz star in a richly textured film.

The Conformist
Fifty years after its release, “The Conformist” looks as fresh today as it did in 1970, and the politics still resonate. A remarkably evocative picture of Italy between the wars, the film remains one of the great triumphs of world cinema.

Just Mercy
Jamie Foxx and Michael B Jordan deliver towering performances in this true-life story of US lawyer Bryan Stevenson’s battle to free a man wrongfully convicted of murder. The excellent supporting characters, including Rafe Spall as a menacing D.A., all add to the movie's texture and sense of place.

Bait
Members' choice! The scene is Cornwall, where the new collides with the old. Two brothers have sold the family home, and tensions are high because one has to carry on fishing by hand while the other uses the boat for tourist trips.

Parasite
Bong Joon-ho's bitter comic satire traces the intertwining fates of two families, the scrappy and scraping-by Kims and the sleek, successful Parks. As the Kims install themselves in the lives of the Park family, the outstanding ensemble cast upend our expectations of both genre and character.
