The Man from U.N.C.L.E. [12A] 116 mins Directed by Guy Ritchie and set against the backdrop of the early 1960s at the height of the Cold War, CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin are forced to put aside longstanding hostilities and team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organisation. The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.
45 Years  95 mins Kate Mercer is planning a party to celebrate her 45th wedding anniversary. One week before the celebration a letter arrives for her husband, Geoff, containing news that reawakens troubling and long-hidden memories. Anchored by sensational performances from Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay (pictured above), 45 Years is an intimate, moving and beautifully restrained portrait of a marriage shaken to its core by things left unspoken, and is British film- making at its very best.
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl [12A] 105 mins Winner of two awards at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, this is a uniquely funny and moving story about Greg who avoids deep human relationships as a way to safely navigate the social minefield that is teenage life. In fact he describes his best friend Earl, with whom he makes short-film parodies of classic movies, as being ‘more like a co-worker’. But when Greg’s mum insists he spends time with Rachel – a girl in his class who has just been diagnosed with cancer, Greg discovers just how powerful and important true friendship can be. Starring Thomas Mann and Olivia Cooke.
Legend  131 mins The true story of the rise and fall of London’s most notorious gangsters, Reggie and Ron Kray, both portrayed by Tom Hardy in an amazing double performance. Legend is a classic crime thriller taking us into the secret history of the 1960s and the extraordinary events that secured the infamy of the Kray Twins. Written and directed by Academy Award winner Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, Mystic River), also starring David Thewlis, Christopher Eccleston and Taron Egerton.
