SET FIRE TO THE STARS (15) and Q & A with Celyn Jones

The screening will be followed by a Q & A with Celyn Jones, who plays Dylan Thomas and also co-wrote the Set Fire To The Stars script

Director: Andy Goddard
Starring: Celyn Jones; Elijah Wood; Shirley Henderson; Kelly Reilly; Steven Mackintosh; Kevin Eldon
Running time: 97 mins

SET FIRE TO THE STARS is a playful, humorous and moving snapshot of one of the world’s most beloved poets. In 1950, John Malcolm Brinnin invited the highly acclaimed and infamous Welshman Dylan Thomas to New York for a series of poetry readings, touring around the most prestigious college campuses of the United States. Ignoring persistent rumours of the Thomas’ frivolities back home, Brinnin has his hands full when the poet arrives on US shores. Mesmerising and moving when reciting his masterpieces on stage, Thomas displays a flamboyant and direct approach when it comes to charming the pants off his admiring female fanbase.

Desperate to get his watchful university chaplains off his back, Brinnin takes Thomas to his family retreat in the woods of Connecticut. But even in the middle of nowhere, the resourceful and cantankerous Thomas finds an audience for his art, his passion, love and aggression. Shot stunningly in Black and White, SET FIRE TO THE STARS invites the audience to spend a week with the force of nature that is Dylan Thomas, brought to life beautifully by Goddard’s deft direction and exceptional performances by Celyn Jones and Elijah Wood.

Total Film ****
“Their strained relationship and shared torment compel throughout, complemented by Goddard’s deft direction and Gruff Rhys score that mixes jazz and chamber music to ace effect”

MR TURNER (12a)

Rialto Film Night Screening

Director: Mike Leigh
Cast: Timothy Spall, Lesley Manville, Ruth Sheen
Running time:  150 mins

MR.TURNER explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851). Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies.

Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.

“Every scene in this film is expertly managed; every comic line and funny moment adroitly presented and every performance given with intelligence and love. It is another triumph for Mike Leigh and for Timothy Spall.” THE GUARDIAN

LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST (cert TBC)

Live from the Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford-Upon-Avon

Running time: 160mins

Summer 1914. In order to dedicate themselves to a life of study, the King and his friends take an oath to avoid the company of women for three years. No sooner have they made their idealistic pledge than the Princess of France and her ladies-in-waiting arrive, presenting the men with a severe test of their high-minded resolve.

Shakespeare’s sparkling comedy delights in championing and then unravelling an unrealistic vow, and mischievously suggesting that the study of the opposite sex is in fact the highest of all academic endeavours. Only at the end of the play is the merriment curtailed as the lovers agree to submit to a period apart, unaware that the world around them is about to be utterly transformed by the war to end all wars.

Christopher Luscombe directs one acting company in both Love’s Labour’s Lost and Love’s Labour’s Won (usually known as Much Ado About Nothing). Christopher’s directing credits include The Comedy of Errors and The Merry Wives of Windsor for Shakespeare’s Globe as well as The Madness of George III and Spamalot in the West End.
