The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
We just couldn't go past the next installment of this brilliantly funny and colourful film. Besides, who could say no to watching Maggie Smith, Judi Dench and Bill Nighy on screen together. Not to mention the added bonus of Richard Gere.
THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel), and it’s making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai). Sonny has his eye on a promising property now that his first venture, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful, has only a single remaining vacancy – posing a rooming predicament for fresh arrivals Guy (Richard Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig). Evelyn and Douglas (Judi Dench and Bill Nighy) have now joined the Jaipur workforce, and are wondering where their regular dates for Chilla pancakes will lead, while Norman and Carol (Ronald Pickup and Diana Hardcastle) are negotiating the tricky waters of an exclusive relationship, as Madge (Celia Imrie) juggles two eligible and very wealthy suitors. Perhaps the only one who may know the answers is newly installed co-manager of the hotel, Muriel (Maggie Smith), the keeper of everyone's secrets. As the demands of a traditional Indian wedding threaten to engulf them all, an unexpected way forward presents itself.

A Most Violent Year
Jessica Chastain rarely disappoints. This is one to make time for.
A MOST VIOLENT YEAR is a searing crime drama set in New York City during the winter of 1981, statistically the most dangerous year in the city’s history. From acclaimed writer/director J.C. Chandor, and starring Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) and Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), this gripping story plays out within a maze of rampant political and industry corruption plaguing the streets of a city in decay. J.C. Chandor’s third feature examines one immigrant’s determined climb up a morally crooked ladder, where simmering rivalries and unprovoked attacks threaten his business, family, and––above all––his own unwavering belief in the righteousness of his path. With A MOST VIOLENT YEAR, Chandor journeys in a bold new direction, toward the place where best intentions yield to raw instinct, and where we are most vulnerable to compromise what we know to be right.

Project Almanac
Perhaps one for the teenagers in the house!
A group of friends make a crazy discovery that leads to the development of a working time-machine. Keeping their incredible discovery a secret, the tight-knit gang start travelling back in time, experimenting with small tweaks in the past, that ultimately go on to change the course of each of their futures. With each trip back, the adventure increases but the risks mount and the stakes grow bigger. In bending the world to suit themselves, their actions start to create worldwide effects – leading directly back to the group. In the end they face a race against past and future time to correct their mistakes and put their lives back on track.
