The story of the handing back of India to it’s people and the creation of Pakistan, set in the Viceroy’s House in Delhi. Starring Hugh Bonneville and Gillian Anderson.The film is set in the Viceroy's House in 1947, during the partition of India, shortly after the end of the second world war, when millions of Indians had stood with the British on the battlefields of Europe, in our fight against the Germans. It was now our turn to return the favour, and give India, back to the Indians. Hugh Bonneville plays Lord Mountbatten without fault. He comes across as charming, and typical of the fighting aristocracy of the time. He cared about his legacy. He cared about doing what was right. Most importantly, he cared about India, her people, and its long-term future.Michael Gambon plays General Ismay, an archetypal, political pragmatist. He doesn't care about India. He isn't really interested in her people. He only cares about Britain, and its future.Gillian Anderson’s performance as Lady Mountbatten is wonderful.
AUTUMN SEASON 2017
WEDNESDAY 1st November ‘Their Finest’Cert. 12 ; Runtime: 2 hours
London 1940: Gemma Arterton makes movie magic in this hugely entertaining Second World War comedy drama.The actress deploys her ample talent as Catrin, a writer who inadvertently wages a one-woman war on sexism in the British film industry. It’s a gift of a role which makes the most of her ability to be warm, vulnerable, smart and sexy.Meanwhile, wily old trouper Bill Nighy leads a first class platoon of homegrown supporting talent, which includes Helen McCrory, Eddie Marsan and Jeremy Irons.Working though the Blitz, Catrin discovers looking like a Bond girl in a male dominated environment provides additional hazards.Equipped with a wedding ring, a thick skin and a desire to succeed, she shares a small office with the cynical senior writer, Tom, played by the dependable Sam Claflin.They must concoct a screenplay celebrating an heroic episode from the evacuation of Dunkirk. But their work is complicated when they discover the ‘facts’ involved in their story are not as have been reported in the press.With deception a key to filmmaking, especially with propaganda, Their Finest explores the way great fictions can reveal even larger truths, and looks at the way lies are employed to serve a greater good.
