The Bookshop
 The Bookshop
Director Isabel Coixet has adapted the bestselling novel by Penelope Fitzgerald for the screen. In England in 1959, a free-spirited widow Florence Green (Emily Mortimer) risks everything to open a bookshop in a conservative East Anglian coastal town. While bringing about a surprising cultural awakening through works by Ray Bradbury and Vladimir Nabokov, she earns the polite but ruthless opposition of a local grand dame (Patricia Clarkson) and the support and affection of a reclusive book loving widower (Bill Nighy). As Florence’s obstacles amass and bear suspicious signs of a local power struggle, she is forced to ask: is there a place for a bookshop in a town that may not want one? (PG, 113 mins)

“Its subversive undercurrent, embodied in fine performances by Emily Mortimer and Bill Nighy, is what makes it really interesting.” – Jonathan Holland, The Hollywood Reporter

The Children Act
 The Children Act
In this film adaptation of Ian McEwan’s best-selling novel, Emma Thompson plays Fiona Maye, an eminent High Court judge in London presiding over ethically complex cases of family law. But she has paid a heavy personal price for her workload, and her marriage to American professor Jack (Stanley Tucci) is at a breaking point. In this moment of personal crisis, Fiona is asked to rule on the case of Adam (Fionn Whitehead), a brilliant boy who is refusing the blood transfusion that will save his life. Adam is three months from his 18th birthday and still legally a child. Should Fiona force him to live? Fiona visits Adam in the hospital and their meeting has a profound emotional impact on them both, stirring strong new emotions in the boy and long-buried feelings in her. (R, 105 mins)

"The Children Act is that rarest of things: an adult drama, written and interpreted with a sensitivity to mature human concerns." – Peter Debruge, Variety

"Accompanied, appropriately enough, by Bach piano pieces, The Children Act is an unmitigated pleasure to watch and listen to, primarily as a showcase for Thompson’s incomparable gifts as an actress." – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

Crazy Rich Asians
 Crazy Rich Asians
In this hugely popular romantic comedy, Rachel Chu is happy to accompany her longtime boyfriend, Nick, to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. She’s also surprised to learn that Nick’s family is extremely wealthy and he’s considered one of the country’s most eligible bachelors. Thrust into the spotlight, Rachel must now contend with jealous socialites, quirky relatives and something far, far worse — Nick’s disapproving mother. (PG13, 120 mins)

"But why feel guilty around such irresistible fun? And if it's also a win for representation, so much the better." – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"Fans of Kwan’s books will not be disappointed by Chu’s adaptation, as “Crazy Rich Asians” lovingly brings to life some of the novel’s standout scenes . – Kate Erbland, IndieWire

Pick Of The Litter
 Pick Of The Litter
Meet Patriot, Potomac, Primrose, Poppet, and Phil—five spirited puppies who, from the moment they’re born, begin an incredible journey to become guide dogs for the blind. It’s a rigorous two-year process that will take the pups from the care of selfless foster volunteers to specialized trainers to, if they make the cut, a lifelong human companion. At every step of the way, the puppies will be tested, challenged, and evaluated. Only the best of the best will be chosen for the job of guide dog—who has what it takes? From filmmakers Dana Nachman and Don Hardy. (81 mins)

Post-film discussion: the local non-profit organization Mutts With a Mission trains service dogs for adoption by veterans. In attendance will be dogs and their owners to answer questions from the audience.

"As cuddly as this may sound, the documentary is unexpectedly suspenseful, even intense." – Marissa Martinelli, Slate

"This film — which follows the process as a litter of puppies make their way through training to become guide dogs for the blind — shows us the best in humanity, as well as the best in dogs." – Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times

Produced and directed by Phil Grabsky in the ongoing series ‘Exhibition On Screen’. (85 mins)​

"​This illuminating documentary portrait details the undimmed curiosity and enthusiasm of the grand old man of British painting​" – ​Andrew Pulver, The Guardian

Tawai: The Voice of the Forest
 Tawai: The Voice of the Forest
Wed, Oct 17 at 7:15pm – 'New Non-Fiction Film'

Tawai is the word the nomadic hunter gatherers of Borneo use to describe their inner feeling of connection to all of nature. In this dreamy, philosophical and sociological look at life, British explorer and filmmaker Bruce Parry (BBC’s Tribe) travels from the jungles of Malaysia to the far-reaches of the Amazon to visit the last of the world’s indigenous tribal peoples. Ten years after first visiting the Penan of Borneo, he returns to record the changes and reconnect with their ancient wisdom. (101 mins)

Post-film discussion: to be announced

"It's sincere, thought-provoking and gives you space to meditate on its message." – Anna Smith, Time Out

"Parry makes for an amiable travelling companion. Will his unabashed tree-hugging translate at a moment of peak climate-change denial? We do hope so." – Tera Brady, Irish Times
