'My Cousin Rachel’ on January 4th



















This is described as a highly enjoyable mystery thriller and is based on the Daphne Du Maurier novel, published in 1951. Roger Michell adapted the story and directed the film. A young Englishman plots revenge against his late cousin’s mysterious and beautiful wife, believing her responsible for his relative’s death. His feelings get somewhat complicated as he finds himself falling under her spell as she weaves her mean, minxy and manipulative way through the plot. Also starring Sam Claflin and Holliday Granger


‘Victoria and Abdul’ on February 1st





















Abdul Karim arrives from India to participate in Queen Victoria's golden jubilee. The young clerk is surprised to find favour with the queen herself. As Victoria questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance that her household and inner circle try to destroy. As their friendship deepens, the queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes, joyfully reclaiming her humanity. Watch Judi Dench as Victoria, Eddie Izzard as Bertie and Ali Fazal as Abdul



‘'Dunkirk’ on March 1st





















In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated. This film is Christopher Nolan’s interpretation of that very well known episode in our history. Some critics have hailed it as a triumph, especially Kenneth Branagh’s performance.



‘Murder on the Orient Express’ on April 5th






















Kenneth Branagh again this month, both directing and starring in this film. One critic said that he ‘commandeers the movie, turning it into a showcase for himself as Poirot.’
A lavish trip through Europe quickly unfolds into a race against time to solve a murder aboard a train. When an avalanche stops the Orient Express dead in its tracks, the world's greatest detective -- Hercule Poirot -- arrives to interrogate all passengers and search for clues before the killer can strike again. Also starring Johnny Depp and Daisy Ridley
