Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland (Renée Zellweger) arrives in Swinging London to perform a five- week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Even her dreams of love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband.

As Betty opens her home and life to him, Roy is surprised to find himself caring about her, turning what should be a cut-and-dry swindle into the most treacherous tightrope walk of his life.
A classic swindle is afoot in this two-hander, with national treasures McKellen and Mirren in full effect. With a fast pace and plenty of flashbacks, you’ll have to be on your toes to keep up with the slick tale of thievery.

When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan’s dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan’s untimely death.
If you’re a fan of Sherlock, Murder She Wrote, Columbo or practically any other good murder- mystery—this is the film for you. A joyous ode to all the classic mysteries with a modern edge. Equally hilarious and taxing!

"Sam Mendes delivers the film of his career. The resulting two hours of amphetamine-rush cinema is both a monumental technical achievement and, instantly, an Oscar-night frontrunner." - A 5 star review from The Times
