Our first film of 2020 is Mark Jenkin’s Bait (2019).
Martin is a fisherman without a boat, his brother Steven having re-purposed it as a tourist tripper. With their childhood home now a get-away for London money, Martin is displaced to the estate above the harbour.
Film critic Mark Kermode calls Bait “…a genuine modern masterpiece, which establishes Jenkin as one of the most arresting and intriguing British film-makers of his generation.“

Our next screening is If Beale Street Could Talk and I’m really excited about this one because not only is it the latest film from Barry Jenkins, the director of Moonlight, but it’s an adaptation of a novel by James Baldwin, a man who’s elegance and razor sharp intellect burn absolutely dazzle.
The plot is focused on a black woman in Harlem who embraces her pregnancy while she and her family struggle to prove her fiancé innocent of a crime. It’s a film of it’s time and ours that is both righteous and romantic.
Here’s the trailer…
The film is rated 15. Tickets cost £7 and can be booked here.

“Khrustalyov, My Car! is relentless and overpowering, yet the film is often poetic in its blend of pathos, freneticism, surrealism and matter of factness” – Time Out
