DJANGO UNCHAINED (18th January)


The latest movie from Quentin Tarantino typically treads controversial territory. Set at the height of slavery in the US, Jamie Foxx plays the title role of Django, a slave freed by a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) in order to hunt down corrupt slave owners, including the sadistic Calvin J. Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). Another work of cult genius from a modern filmmaking icon- if you don’t typically go for the blood-splattered, foul mouthed world of ‘QT’ then stay away, but for fans (like me!) this is exactly the movie the trailers promised. Wonderful stuff.

THE SESSIONS (18th January)


Independent movie actor John Hawkes (“Martha Marcy May Marlene”, TV’s “Deadwood”) gives an astonishing performance as Mark O’Brien, a man paralyzed by Polio from the neck down whose wish to lose his virginity is seemingly granted when he employs a ‘sex surrogate’ (Helen Hunt) to educate and engage in sex with him. Beneath the unusual premise is a rather touching story (based on real life) about love and everyone’s need to feel connected to the outside world. Perhaps not perfect but an uplifting and substantial drama nonetheless.
