Lets go to the movies!


Movies and events at Rye Kino from Friday November 20 include:

Brooklyn [12A] 112 mins  The profoundly moving story of Eilis Lacey, a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950s Brooklyn. Lured by the promise of America, Eilis departs Ireland and the comfort of her mother’s home for the shores of New York City. The initial shackles of homesickness quickly diminish as a fresh romance sweeps Eilis into the intoxicating charm of love. But her new vivacity is disrupted by her past, and Eilis must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within. Starring Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson, Emory Cohen, Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters.

The Lady in the Van [12A] 104 mins.

Suffragette [12A] 106 mins . Inspired by true events, Suffragette is a moving drama exploring the passion and heartbreak of those who risked all they had for women’s right to vote – their jobs, their homes, their children and even their lives. The stirring story centres on Maud, a working wife and mother whose life is changed forever when she secretly joins the growing suffragette movement. Galvanised by Emmeline Pankhurst, Maud becomes an activist for the cause alongside women from all walks of life, engaging in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with the authorities as the women’s civil disobedience escalates and sparks debate across the nation. Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter and Meryl Streep lead the cast of this powerful film directed by BAFTA award winner Sarah Gavron from an original screenplay by Abi Morgan. Also starring Ben Whishaw, Anne-Marie Duff, Brendan Gleeson and Romola Garai.

Spectre [12A] 150 mins.  007’s back!  A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind Spectre. Starring Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, David Bautista, Monica Bellucci and Ralph Fiennes as M.
