Principal photography on
this much acclaimed film began on 8 March 2013, in
Boston and Worcester,
Massachusetts, and New York City.
The film had its nationwide release in the USA on
December 20, 2013, and has since grossed more than $251
million worldwide. The American Hustle was
nominated for 10 British Academy Film Awards, with
Jennifer Lawrence winning for Actress in a Supporting
Role, and David O. Russell and Eric Warren Singer
winning for Best Original Screenplay. American Hustle
was released on DVD and Blu-ray on 18 March 2014.
American Hustle does
not attempt to directly document the events of Abscam.
The names are changed, and the film
begins with the
on-screen message, Some of this actually happened.
Major departures from reality include:
In 1978, con artists Irving Rosenfeld and Sydney Prosser
have started a relationship and are working together.
Sydney has improved Rosenfeld's scams, posing as English
aristocrat "Lady Edith Greensly". While Irving loves
Sydney, he is hesitant to leave his wife Rosalyn out of
fear of losing contact with their son, Danny. Rosalyn
threatened that she could report Irving to the
police if he leaves her...NB. Abscam was the
FBI codename for the operation. It was said that "Abscam"
was a contraction of "Arab scam", after complaints
officials said it was a contraction of "Abdul scam"
after the name of its fictitious front company.

Captain Phillips is a 2013
American thriller film directed by Paul Greengrass and
starring Tom Hanks and Barkhad Abdi. The film is
inspired by the true story of the 2009 Maersk Alabama
hijacking, an incident during which merchant mariner
Captain Richard Phillips was taken hostage by pirates in
the Indian Ocean led by Abduwali Muse.
The screenplay by Billy Ray is based on the 2010 book A
Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and
Dangerous Days at Sea by Richard Phillips with Stephan
Talty. Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti and Michael De Luca
served as producers on the project. It premiered at the
2013 New York Film Festival, and was theatrically
released on October 11, 2013. The film emerged as a
box office success with earnings of over $217 million
against a budget of $55 million. In 2014, Captain
Phillips received six Academy Award nominations,
including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor for Abdi.

Sunday 9th November at
3pm showing at 3.30pm
The Book Thief is a 2013
American-German war drama film directed by Brian
Percival and starring Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, and
Sophie Nélisse. Based on the novel of the same name by
Markus Zusak and adapted by Michael Petroni, the film is
about a young girl living with her adoptive German
family during the Nazi era. Taught to read by her
kind-hearted foster father, the girl begins "borrowing"
books and sharing them with the Jewish refugee being
sheltered by her foster parents in their home. The film
features a musical score by Oscar-winner composer John
The film received mixed reviews upon its theatrical
release with some reviewers praising its "fresher
perspective on the war" and its focus on the "consistent
thread of humanity" in the story, while other critics
faulting the film's "wishful narrative" With a budget of
$19 million, the film was successful at the box office,
earning over $77 million
Sunday 14th December at
3pm showing at 3.30pm
An enormous spoonful of
sugar and the tiniest bit of medicine: it all goes down,
just about. This is a warmly, in fact outrageously
sentimental and self-congratulatory film from Disney
about the master himself: the story of how in 1961 the
wily genius Walt Disney – likably played by Tom Hanks –
persuaded the grumpy British dame PL Travers to come to
Los Angeles and begin talks to sign away the screen
rights to her legendary creation, Mary Poppins. It was a
project Walt had been working on for 20 years. The
director is John Lee Hancock, who made the intensely
patriotic football picture The Blind Side.
Gimlet of eye, pursed of lip, uptight of demeanour,
Travers is terribly suspicious of Hollywood razzmatazz;
she is played by Emma Thompson, a double Oscar-winner
for writing and acting who is nonetheless best known to
younger audiences now from the smash-hit Nanny McPhee
films. Will starchy old Travers finally get thawed by
Walt's rich warmth? Will she abandon her haughty
resistance to his folksiness and schmaltz? And can this
intensely American figure faithfully represent the
quintessential Britishness of the Mary Poppins story?
