What’s on

 

Nomadland

 

Winner of Best Film, Best Director and Best Actress at this year’s Oscar’s. This is a stunner of a film to reopen the Curzon with.

‘Chloé Zhao’s Nomadland is an utterly inspired docu-fictional hybrid. It is a gentle, compassionate, questioning film about the American soul. With artistry and grace, Zhao folds nonprofessionals into an imagined story built around a cheerful, resourceful, middle-aged woman played by Frances McDormand. This quiet, self-effacing performance may be the best of her career so far.’ – The Guardian 

Frances McDormand plays a woman in her sixties, who loses everything after the 2008 Great Recession in America and is forced to hit the road and become a modern, van-dwelling, nomad.

Three Tenors

 

 

Event cinema is back, starting with a celebration of the most celebrated and well-loved operatic trio of all time.

It’s been 30 years since Luciano Pavarotti, José Carreras and Plácido Domingo made their historic debut as The Three Tenors at the ancient baths of Caracalla on the eve of the 1990 Football World Cup. Three Tenors: Voices for Eternity celebrates the emotional highlights of that first concert and the sequel in Los Angeles. With brand new interviews and never-before-seen backstage footage, this documentary offers a fascinating insight into the rivalries and friendships of the legendary opera stars from 1990 through to Pavarotti’s passing in 2007.

Minari – A Curzon Special 

 

“Will be embraced by audiences everywhere” ★★★★★ – BBC Culture

“Unforgettable… A staggeringly powerful story of the American Dream”
– IndieWire

“Every performance is magnificent” – Esquire

Minari, is a tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to a tiny Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother (for which Youn Yuh-jung won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress). Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home.

Liberally laced with clips, humour and his own Brand of insight, Neil’s presentation is a must-see event, especially commissioned for the Curzon.
