Lost in Paris

Written & Directed by DOMINIQUE ABEL & FIONA GORDON Starring DOMINIQUE ABEL, FIONA GORDON, & EMMANUELLE RIVA Filmed in Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon’s signature whimsical style, LOST IN PARIS stars the filmmakers as a small-town Canadian librarian and a strangely seductive, oddly egotistical vagabond. When Fiona’s (Gordon) orderly life is disrupted by a letter of distress from her 88-year-old Aunt Martha (delightfully portrayed by Academy Award®-nominee Emmanuelle Riva) who is living in Paris, Fiona hops on the first plane she can and arrives only to discover that Martha has disappeared. In an avalanche of spectacular disasters, she encounters Dom (Abel), the affable, but annoying tramp who just won’t leave her alone. Replete with the amazing antics and intricately choreographed slapstick that has come to define Abel and Gordon’s work, LOST IN PARIS is a wondrously fun and hectic tale of peculiar people finding love while lost in the City of Lights.

June 1944. Allied Forces stand on the brink: a million soldiers are secretly assembled on the south coast of Britain, poised to invade Nazi-occupied Europe. One man stands in their way: Winston Churchill. Fearful of repeating, on his disastrous command, the mass slaughter of 1915, when over 500,000 soldiers were killed on the beaches of Gallipoli. Exhausted by years of war and plagued by depression, Churchill is a shadow of the hero who has resisted Hitler’s Blitzkrieg. Should the D-Day landings fail, he is terrified he’ll be remembered as the architect of carnage. Only the unflinching support of Churchill’s brilliant, unflappable wife Clementine can halt the Prime Minister’s physical and mental collapse.

This is the trailer for the 2016 remake of the classic movie Whisky Galore which has recently been released. Whisky Galore was originally a novel by Compton Mackenzie, a story of a whisky shortage, a ship running aground with a cargo of whisky and its theft by the local islanders which is told with humour and shows the spirit of the island people. As most Scotch whisky enthusiasts will know Whisky Galore was actually based upon a true event, in 1941 during a storm the cargo ship the SS Politician foundered off the Isle Of Eriskay in the Outer Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland. Its cargo was 50,000 cases of Scotch whisky. As it was war time the nearby Scottish islanders of Todday had a shortage of their favourite dram and proceeded to “rescue” the whisky cargo from the wrecked ship which then led to a game of cat & Mouse with the authorities. Whisky Galore 2016 was directed by Gillies MacKinnon and stars Eddie Izzard, Gregor Fisher, Brian Pettifer, Ellie Kendrick, Kevin Guthrie and Naomi Battrick. According to director Gillies MacKinnon, the Whisky Galore 2016 film is a modern interpretation, not a remake: “The style is contemporary, embracing drama, romance and comedy, with an array of colourful characters providing a platform for a wonderful cast.”[

Their Finest

1940, London, the Blitz; with the country’s morale at stake, Catrin (Gemma Arterton), an untried screenwriter, and a makeshift cast and crew, work under fire to make a film to lift the nation’s flagging spirits; and inspire America to join the war. Partnered alongside fellow screenwriter, Buckley (Sam Claflin) and eccentric actor Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy), the trio set off to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation and capture the imagination of the American population.

Directed by Gurinder Chadha, VICEROY’S HOUSE tells the true story of the final months of British rule in India.

Viceroy’s House in Delhi was the home of the British rulers of India. After 300 years, that rule was coming to an end. For 6 months in 1947, Lord Mountbatten (played by Hugh Bonneville), great grandson of Queen Victoria, assumed the post of the last Viceroy, charged with handing India back to its people.
The film’s story unfolds within that great House. Upstairs lived Mountbatten together with his wife (Gillian Anderson) and daughter (Lily Travers); downstairs lived their 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants. As the political elite – Nehru, Jinnah and Gandhi – converged on the House to wrangle over the birth of independent India, conflict erupted. A decision was taken to divide the country and create a new Muslim homeland: Pakistan. It was a decision whose consequences reverberate to this day.
The film is deeply personal to the director Gurinder Chadha, whose own family was caught up in the tragic events that unfolded as British rule came to an end. Her film examines those events through the prism of a marriage – that of Dickie and Edwina Mountbatten – and a romance – that between a young Hindu servant, Jeet (Manish Dayal), and his intended Muslim bride, Aalia (Huma Qureshi). The young lovers find themselves caught up in the seismic end of Empire, in conflict with the Mountbattens and with their own communities, but never ever giving up hope…
