New Films from Friday 17 June

#DCAcinema

16 June 2022

We’ve got another fantastic line up for you at DCA cinema!

This week starts with Good Luck To You, Leo Grande, a charming, intimate British comedy in which a retiree hires a handsome and confident young sex worker to show her some of the pleasures she’s missed in life. 

French drama Between Two Worlds is an adaptation of Florence Aubenas’ non-fiction bestseller The Night Cleaners, and follows an undercover journalist as she takes a job as a cleaner aboard a Channel ferry, and becomes part of a community of displaced people. In dark comedy All My Friends Hate Me, Pete’s birthday weekend is soon disturbed as his friends slowly turn against him.

Pickpocket, one of Robert Bresson’s most admired and influential films, sees drifter Michel spending his days learning the art of pickpocketing and targeting the unsuspecting citizens of 1950s Paris. We’re also delighted to bring Get Carter back to the big screen, newly restored in 4K from the original 35mm negative.

And on Wed 22 June you can join us for George Michael Freedom Uncut, a career-spanning documentary that features incredible unseen archival and private home footage. 

Still looking for more? Head over to DCA at Home for Taika Waititi’s Hunt for the Wilderpeople, a hilarious and heartfelt film that we can’t recommend enough!

Here's more from DCA's Cinema Programme Assistant, Michael Coull:

"This week falls between two monster summer blockbusters, Top Gun: Maverick, and Jurassic World Dominion, and is a great example of the kind of variety we look to provide at DCA. 

Good Luck To You, Leo Grande is a charming, uplifting comedy, with a trio of female creatives at its core. It is written by British comedian Katy Brand, directed by Australian film-maker Sophie Hyde and stars Emma Thompson on top form as a sexually-frustrated former teacher who has hired an escort (played by Peaky Blinders' Daryl McCormack). 

She is a flawed character in the best sense; believable in her idiosyncrasies but not unlikable. The film has lots to say about ageing, the power dynamics of race and gender, and, of course, sex, but says it all with a wry self-awareness and a light touch."
