The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry (12A)

Dir: Hettie Macdonald 2023 | 108 mins

Based on Rachel Joyce’s bestselling novel.

Harold Fry was never meant to be a hero. He’s an unremarkable man who has failed at all the important things: being a husband, a father and a friend.

Now, well into his 60s, he is content to fade quietly into the background of life. But when Harold learns his friend Queenie is dying, he is moved to act.

He leaves home, walking to the post box to send her a letter. Until he realises a letter is not enough. In that moment Harold decides to keep walking, all the way to her hospice, some 500 miles away in Berwick-upon-Tweed. As long as he walks, Queenie must live.

Surprising himself as much as his wife Maureen, Harold embarks on a walk of hope, determined to travel the length of England to save his friend.

'Broadbent is a wonder, so real and sincere it doesn’t feel like acting' The Spectator

'This politely unassuming little film builds into a wrenching examination of grief, guilt and eventual closure' ★★★★ Guardian

‘It’s a non-religious pilgrim story about the power of hope and faith. A movie that celebrates everyday joys and human connection. The perfect pick-me-up tonic for tough times’ ★★★★ Metro

‘One of the great movies about ageing and regret, up there with 45 Years and The Straight Story’ ★★★★ Times

For all three, questioning their place in the world draws them closer together than ever before.

Stars Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates and Abby Ryder Fortson as Margaret.

‘We forget how much we wanted to rush to grow up, and also how, once it started happening, we weren’t sure how to adjust to this rattling new normal. Are You There God?, both funny and generous, brings it all back’ TIME Magazine

Royal Opera House Live: The Sleeping Beauty

Magic and fairytale characters are brought to life through ballet in this well-known family favourite.

The Sleeping Beauty holds a very special place in The Royal Ballet’s heart and history. It was the first performance given by the Company when the Royal Opera House reopened at Covent Garden after World War II. In 2006, this original staging was revived and has been delighting audiences ever since.

Frederick Ashton famously cited the pure classicism of Marius Petipa’s 19th-century ballet as a private lesson in the atmospheric art and craft of choreography. Be swept away by Tchaikovsky’s ravishing music and Oliver Messel’s sumptuous fairytale designs with this true gem from the classical ballet repertory.

National Theatre Live: The Best of Enemies

In 1968 America two men fight to become the next president. But all eyes are on the battle between two others: the cunningly conservative William F. Buckley Jr., and the unruly liberal Gore Vidal.

During a new nightly television format, they debate the moral landscape of a shattered nation. As beliefs are challenged and slurs slung, a new frontier in American politics is opening and television news is about to be transformed forever.

Jeremy Herrin (All My Sons) directs this blistering political thriller, filmed live in London’s West End.
