That Good Night stars award winner, John Hurt (The Elephant Man, Midnight Express) in his last leading role as Ralph, a once-famous film director in his seventies who has two missions in life. Ralph wishes to be reconciled with his son, Michael (Max Brown, Spooks), and, to ensure that he is not a burden to his devoted wife, Anna (Sofia Helin, The Bridge), as he goes “into that good night”. Ralph hires the services of the mysterious “Visitor” (Charles Dance, Game of Thrones) who unexpectedly guides him to find new meaning in his life. 

Set in the stunning hilltops of the Algarve coastline of Portugal, this life affirming drama exploring family relationships is based on the stage play by NJ Crisp and inspired by the poem of Dylan Thomas.

CINEMA | THE GREATEST SHOWMAN | SATURDAY 9 JUNE

Starring Hugh Jackman, this popular film celebrates the birth of show business, and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.

The greatest showan

 

Orphaned, penniless but ambitious and with a mind crammed with imagination and fresh ideas, the American Phineas Taylor Barnum will always be remembered as the man with the gift to effortlessly blur the line between reality and fiction. Thirsty for innovation and hungry for success, the son of a tailor will manage to open a wax museum but will soon shift focus to the unique and peculiar, introducing extraordinary, never-seen-before live acts on the circus stage. Some will call Barnum’s wide collection of oddities, a freak show; however, when the obsessed for cheers and respectability showman gambles everything on the opera singer Jenny Lind to appeal to a high-brow audience, he will somehow lose sight of the most important aspect of his life: his family. Will Barnum risk it all to be accepted?
