Summerland (12)

Dir: Jessica Swale 2020 | 100 mins

Summerland follows the story of fiercely independent folklore investigator, Alice (Gemma Arterton). Alice secludes herself in her clifftop study, debunking myths using science to disprove the existence of magic. Consumed by her work, but also profoundly lonely, she is haunted by a love affair from her past.

When spirited young Frank (Lucas Bond), an evacuee from the London Blitz, is dumped into her irritable care, his innocence and curiosity awaken Alice’s deeply buried emotions.

WHY? Starring Gemma Arterton, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tom Courtney, Penelope Wilton and Lucas Bond

National Theatre Live: All My Sons

Encore screenings.

Captured live in 2019 from The Old Vic in London, Academy Award-winner Sally Field (Steel Magnolias, Brothers & Sisters) and Bill Pullman (The Sinner, Independence Day) star in Arthur Miller’s blistering drama All My Sons.

But nothing lasts forever and their contented lives, already shadowed by the loss of their eldest boy to war, are about to shatter. With the return of a figure from the past, long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.

WHY? Jeremy Herrin (NT Live: This House, People, Places & Things) directs a cast including Jenna Coleman (Victoria), and Colin Morgan (Merlin).

All My Sons is an Old Vic co-production with Headlong

A Night at the Louvre - Leonardo da Vinci

In French with English subtitles.

Filmed at night especially for the big screen, this private guided tour of the Leonardo da Vinci exhibition, designed and curated by the Louvre Museum, is a unique opportunity to
contemplate the painter's most beautiful works up close.

This major retrospective devoted to his entire career as a painter shows how Leonardo placed painting above all other disciplines, and how his investigation of the world – the 'science of painting' as he called it – was the instrument of an art whose supreme ambition was to give life to his works. The insights provided by the exhibition curators during this private filmed visit offers a new understanding of Leonardo’s artistic practice and painting technique.

Exhibition press quotes:

‘It may be decades before anything like “Leonardo da Vinci” is staged again’ The Washington Post

‘An excellent, deeply considered exhibition’ The New York Times

‘Louvre's Leonardo da Vinci is a blockbuster with brains’ ★★★★★ The Guardian

‘In this scintillating, blockbuster show, Leonardo skewers the heart’ ★★★★ The Telegraph

‘The Louvre show is revelatory’ ★★★★ The Times
