What to see at the cinema:
Live By Night
It’s the ’20s, and Prohibition hasn’t stopped the liquor flowing in an underground network of gangster-run speakeasies. The opportunity to gain power and money is there for any man with enough ambition and nerve. Joe Coughlin, the youngest son of the Boston Police captain, long ago turned his back on his strict upbringing for the thrills of being an outlaw. But even among criminals there are rules, and Joe breaks a big one: crossing a powerful mob boss by stealing his money and his girl.
La La Land
Mia an aspiring actress, and Sebastian, a dedicated jazz musician, are struggling to make ends meet while pursuing their dreams in a city known for destroying hopes and breaking hearts. With modern day Los Angeles as the backdrop, this musical about everyday life explores what’s more important: a once-in-a-lifetime love, or the spotlight.
Though Kevin has shown 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher, there remains one still hidden who’s set to materialise and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the wilful, observant Casey, Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him. The three girls must find some of Kevin’s different personalities that can help them, whilst running away to stay alive from the others.
A Monster Calls
12-year-old Conor is trying to deal with his mother’s illness, whilst he has a less-than-sympathetic grandmother, and bullying classmates. Connor finds a most unlikely ally when a monster appears at his bedroom window. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth.
20 years after the previous film, Mark Renton returns to Scotland to make amends with his friends, Daniel ‘Spud’ Murphy and Simon ‘Sick Boy’ Williamson, whilst avoiding the psychopathic Francis ‘Franco’ Begbie, who’s recently been released from prison.
