National Theatre Live: Much Ado About Nothing

by William Shakespeare

directed by Simon Godwin

Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd) and John Heffernan (Dracula) lead the cast in Shakespeare’s romcom of sun, sea and mistaken identity.

The legendary family-run Hotel Messina on the Italian Riveria has been visited by artists, celebrities and royalty. But when the owner’s daughter weds a dashing young soldier, not all guests are in the mood for love.

A string of scandalous deceptions soon surround not only the young couple, but also the adamantly single Beatrice and Benedick.

Following the award-winning success of National Theatre Live’s Romeo & Juliet, Twelfth Night and Antony and Cleopatra, director Simon Godwin returns with this irresistible comedy, broadcast live from the National Theatre stage.

Official Competition (15)

Dir: Gastón Duprat 2022 | 115 mins

Lola Cuevas (Penélope Cruz) is an independent cinema darling and Cannes Palme d’Or-winning filmmaker. She is approached by ageing, ailing business mogul Humberto Suárez (José Luis Gómez) to make a film. He hopes it will be his legacy for the world.

Intended as an adaptation of a much-loved literary work, Lola has more experimental intentions than some turgid piece of heritage cinema. She casts acclaimed but stiflingly snobbish actor Ivan Torres (Oscar Martínez) against handsome but superficial screen icon Felix Rivero (Antonio Banderas), believing that the inevitable tension between the two can only help the film’s dynamic.

A sharp filmmaking satire skewering wealth, art and pride.

‘An uproarious comedy that’s also deliciously well-performed’ ★★★★★ The Daily Telegraph

‘It’s a very funny film, sending-up human absurdities without being too mean’ ★★★★ The Guardian

My Childhood, My Country: 20 Years in Afghanistan (15)

Dir: Phil Grabsky, Shoaib Sharifi 2021 | 90 mins

A real-life epic of boyhood and manhood – filmed across twenty years in one of the most embattled corners of the globe.

When the filmmakers first meet Mir, he is a mischievous boy of eight. Now he is 27 years old, with children of his own – and a fledgling career as a news cameraman.

Mir lived through 9/11, when his homeland became ground zero in the war on terror. He has subsequently lived through the unsuccessful war against the Taliban – who have now regained power.

He has never lived in a nation at peace.

Mir and his family form a portrait of embattled Afghanistan that no other film has ever captured. War, politics, poverty, and heartbreak – all seen from the level of a child frolicking in a muddy, bullet-laden pool, playing soccer on a dirt pitch and forgoing school to work to support his family.

The innocence and optimism of Mir contrasts with contemporary news footage. After more than a trillion dollars spent by 40 countries, and countless lives lost, was the cost worth it – for Mir and the world? The film lets the viewer decide.

‘A remarkable, moving, and gripping film told with great intimacy’ Film Week
