In The Heights
Before there was Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda won a Tony Award in 2008 for the Broadway musical In The Heights.
Director Jon M. Chu brings to life the story of how a likeable bodega owner Usnavi (Anthony Ramos) rallies together this vibrant and tight-knit community from Washington Heights, as he simultaneously saves up every penny from his daily grind in the hope of a better life.
In the Heights is an exuberant mix of musical styles including salsa, merengue, rap and hip-hop that gives a voice to a Latino community.
David Ehrlich from Indie Wire describes In the Heights as a film that "…leaves you feeling like the movies were back, even if they hadn't gone anywhere.”
Another Round, starring Mads Mikkelsen, is this years Academy Award winner for Best International Film and BAFTA winner for Best Film not in the English language.
In this story, we meet four teachers who are locked in monotony and looking for the freedoms of youth that have gradually become distant memories. They rediscover all of it and much more by taking part in an experiment where they systematically intake alcohol every day.
Thomas Vinterburg, the director, imagines Another Round as a tribute to life. It is a reclaiming of the irrational wisdom that casts off all anxious common sense and looks down into the very delight of lust for life… although often with deadly consequences.
From writer and director Harry Macqueen comes Supernova, a heart-rending modern love story about a couple struggling with a diagnosis of early-onset dementia. Sam (Academy Award winner Colin Firth) and Tusker (Academy Award nominee Stanley Tucci) take a road trip together to reconnect with friends, family and places from their past.
“Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci dazzle…” says Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian.
As their trip together progresses, their individual ideas for their future begin to collide. Secrets are uncovered, private plans unravel, and their love for each other is tested like never before. Ultimately, they must confront the question of what it means to love one another in the face of Tusker’s irreparable illness.
Tove is the captivating story about the creative energy of iconic Moomins creator Tove Jansson, and her turbulent search for identity, desire and freedom.
Set in Helsinki, 1945, the story follows painter Tove (Alma Pöysti) balancing her artistic dreams and creating the enchanting tales of the ‘Moomin’ creature that rapidly take on a life of their own, bringing international fame and financial freedom. Her desire for liberty is put to the test, when she meets theatre director Vivica Bandler (Krista Kosonen) who ignites an electric and all-consuming love in her.
From director Zaida Bergroth, Tove is the remarkable story of one of Europe’s most beloved and inspiring artists.
