Mary Poppins Returns (PG)

Mary Poppins Returns (PG)
Tues 13 Aug, 2pm for 2.30pm Showing

In Depression-era London, a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with Michael's three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.  With Emily Blunt as Mary, Ben Whishaw and Emily Mortimer as the adult Banks children, and cameos from Meryl Streep and Dick Van Dyke.

“Emily Blunt is superb from the very first swish of her petticoat, acknowledging her predecessor just enough to be credible but wisely steering clear of an out-and-out imitation.”  Radio Times

“It's a joyous, uplifting film that soars under the London sky and inspires a whole new generation to the Mary Poppins magic. If you're looking for a film that personifies happiness, this is it!”  Urban Cinefile
“Gloriously uplifting and thoughtful.”  Eye for Film

Wild Rose (15)

Wild Rose (15)
Tues 13 Aug, 7pm for 7.30pm Showing

Glaswegian mother-of-two Rose Lynn must choose between her responsibility to her children and her burning ambition to break into Nashville’s country music scene.  Meanwhile her mother, played by Julie Walters, wonders ruefully whether she will ever really grow up.

“Wild Rose posits a classic setup — a young rebel (in this case a young Glaswegian woman fresh out of prison, played by the incandescent Jessie Buckley) with a raw streak of talent (singing country music) and then tests how badly she wants to succeed (will she leave her young children for a chance to go to Nashville?). Out of these familiar, predictable elements director Tom Harper and screenwriter Nicole Taylor have fashioned something entirely delightful, fresh as a Scottish summer evening.”  Hollywood Reporter

“Jessie Buckley gives a stand-out performance in Wild Rose, an identity story about choice, sacrifice, and knowing who you really are.”  The Mirror
“Though the central premise of the film draws on a frequently mined issue, the sensitivity and warmth with which the tale is spun strikes a deep vein of cinematic riches. Wild Rose may not be realistic, but it’s a spellbinding depiction of female love and sacrifice.”  The Upcoming
