Winston Churchill infamously refused to sanction an assault to liberate Nazi-occupied Jersey during the Second World War because he didn’t think it was worth the military risk. Life on the abandoned Channel Islands is the setting for Another Mother’s Son, which tells the true story of unsung heroine Louisa Gould. Having just lost a son in the conflict, Louisa (Seagrove) takes in an escaped Russian prisoner of war (Kostov) and then claims him as her own son. In spite of obvious dangers, she remains confident the island’s close-knit community will protect her and her new family member. As the solidarity of the island wavers in the face of oppression and divided loyalty, Louisa fights to preserve her family’s sense of humanity. Director Christopher Menaul (The Forsyte Saga) delivers an affecting, highly watchable moral drama. Contains moderate violence and gruesome images.

Get ready to be wowed all over again.

For seven idyllic years, Tim (Bakshi) has enjoyed the perfect life with his adoring parents (Kimmel and Kudrow). Then his new baby brother arrives. And he’s a very unusual baby indeed: he wears a suit, carries a briefcase and talks with the voice of Alec Baldwin. Tim is the only one not amused, but the two warring siblings reluctantly team up to foil a dastardly plot involving puppies. Expect poop jokes.

June 1944. In the days before the Normandy landings, allied forces stand on the brink of invasion, but one man stands in their way: Winston Churchill. Drained by years of war and plagued by depression, Churchill (Cox) is a shadow of the hero who resisted the Blitzkrieg.  His uncertainty clashes with the gung-ho resolve of his political opponents. His fear: repeating deadly past mistakes and going down in history as an architect of slaughter if the campaign fails. Only the support of his headstrong wife Clementine (Richardson) can halt his physical and mental collapse. Churchill is the untold story of the dark side of Britain’s most celebrated leader, revealing the haunted frailty behind the rousing speeches and his vital relationship with ‘Clemmie’, the confidant who inspired him to greatness.

When three retired pals (Arkin, Caine and Freeman) are robbed of their pensions by duplicitous ex-employers and their bankers, they decide to rob a bank to get even and recover their dignity. The actors’ comic timing, nuanced performances and a sharp-as-nails script make this a riotously entertaining film, underpinned by a serious commentary on growing old in a callous, capitalistic society. Contains infrequent strong language and drug misuse.

As they journey across the far reaches of the universe, the Guardians attempt to solve the mystery of Peter Quill’s (Pratt) parentage. On their travels, they cross paths with old foes, new faces and an enigmatic villain in Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki), but their biggest battle might just be to keep their newfound family together. Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and Bradley Cooper reprise their roles as Gamora, Drax and Rocket respectively, while Vin Diesel returns to voice a very naïve and goofy baby Groot. Expect another humdinger of a soundtrack.
 
IT WAS 50 YEARS AGO TODAY: THE BEATLES, SGT. PEPPER AND BEYOND (12A)
3rd June - 8:15pm


 ​Director: Alan G. Parker.

On 1 June 1967 The Beatles released what would become one of the biggest selling and most influential records of all time, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. This star-studded rockumentary offers a fascinating insight into the swinging sixties and the creation of one of the most important albums in pop history
 THE JOURNEY (12A)
 2nd June - 6:00pm
 5th June - 8:15pm
 6th June - 2:00pm
 8th June - 6:00pm

Director: Nick Hamm.
Starring: Colm Meaney,  Timothy Spall, John Hurt.
Having agreed – perhaps out of battle weariness – to attend a meeting brokered by the then British PM Tony Blair (Toby Stephens) in Scotland, lifelong political enemies Ian Paisley (Spall) and Martin McGuinness (Meaney) are forced to take a car journey together to get there. What neither politician knows, however, is that their car is bugged and their driver (Freddie Highmore) an MI5 plant, so that Blair and his chief spook (Hurt) can monitor their progress. Based on what would become 2006’s power-sharing agreement between Northern Ireland’s Republicans and the Unionists, Nick Hamm’s fascinating film reveals how Paisley and McGuinness gradually, and grudgingly, let their huge differences go. All the main players, especially Spall, are utterly convincing and the film itself suitably tense yet laced with dry humour. Contains infrequent strong language, footage of real riots and brief injury detail.

Robbed of his birthright, Arthur (Hunnam) grows up the hard way on the Londinium streets until he draws the magic sword from its stone and discovers its power. Forced to acknowledge his true heritage, he must overcome his demons – and Vortigern – to take his rightful place on the throne. Contains infrequent strong language, moderate violence and threat.

Soon after, Philip learns that his guardian is dangerously ill, but by the time he arrives in Italy, Ambrose is dead and Rachel has left for England, bound for her deceased husband’s estate in Cornwall. Racked by suspicion, Philip confronts Rachel, but he soon finds himself falling under her spell. What is she? A femme fatale? A gold-digger? A tease?

Television’s most popular piglet goes on a series of boundary-pushing adventures, including visits to the Queen and to Australia. Created with fidgety little ’uns in mind, this isn’t a full-length feature, but nine brand new TV-length episodes linked together by bouncy sing-a-longs.

20th June - 2:00pm

​Director: Jim Sheridan.
Starring: Rooney Mara, Vanessa Redgrave, Theo James.

Director Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot, In The Name Of The Father) delivers a beautifully realised drama based on Sebastian Barry’s novel. It’s the story of Rose (Redgrave), the sole remaining inhabitant of a decrepit psychiatric hospital, who relives the tragic circumstances that sent her there. In the process we meet her younger self (Mara, never better) and a priest (James) who was complicit in her incarceration. Wonderful performances perfectly interpret Sheridan’s powerful script.

Starring: Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy, Richard E. Grant.

Lone Scherfig’s delightfully polite romantic comedy follows writer Catrin Cole (Arterton), who is hired by the British Ministry of Information during the Blitz to bring a female perspective to wartime propaganda films. Working with cynical producer Tom Buckley (Claflin), she battles with a less-than-promising story, constant rewrites, a beady-eyed supervisor and the disgruntled antics of a self-obsessed, fading thespian (Nighy) as she attempts to make a film that will lift the nation’s spirits. Contains infrequent strong language, moderate sex and injury detail.

29th June - 6:00pm

​Director: Roger Goldby.
Starring: Joan Collins, Pauline Collins.

An elderly former movie star and her downtrodden pal set off on an unlikely road trip to France. Joan Collins and Pauline Collins are sublimely entertaining in a fast-paced, bittersweet comedy that might be called a silver-haired Thelma & Louise. Contains infrequent strong language and drug misuse.
VICEROY'S HOUSE(12A)
4th June - 7:15pm
6th June - 5:15pm

​Director: Gurinder Chadha.

Set in the Viceroy’s House in Delhi, drama escalates as Hindu, Sikh and Muslim differences threaten to overwhelm the Mountbattens, whose well-intentioned efforts are often sorely misplaced. Contains brief distressing images.

20th June - 5:00pm
21st June - 6:00pm

​​​Director: Niki Caro.
Starring: Jessica Chastain, Johan Heldenbergh, Daniel Brühl.

Kiwi director Niki Caro tells the astonishing true story of Antonina Jabinski (Chastain, The Help) and her husband Jan (Heldenbergh), whose Warsaw zoo became a hub for the Polish underground resistance during the Nazi occupation of their homeland. After much of it is destroyed during the German invasion in 1939, their once thriving animal sanctuary is left at the mercy of the Reich’s chief zoologist (Brühl, Rush). Risking execution if caught, the Jabinskis use what remains as a front for resistance plans to smuggle hundreds of Jews away from the Warsaw Ghetto to safety. By turns moving, riveting and extraordinary, The Zookeeper’s Wife is yet another triumph for Chastain following her recent Oscar nods, but the entire film is something of an ensemble piece with exceptional performances across the board
