From May to July Roxy will be screening one of this year's Oscar winners and nominees every Monday evening plus a couple of Sundays.
One of the heavyweights of the year, this is a remarkably rich and rewarding film with memorable performances from Michael Sheen and Frank Langella. A little surprising perhaps that an interesting if not hugely consequential or dramatic interview in the late 70s should spawn a hit play, and that this essentially stage-bound static two-hander should spawn one of the films of the year.
This is largely due to dramatist Peter Morgan (also responsible for The Queen and The Deal) who creates the fascinating, dramatic and entertaining duel between these two figures. That he didn't take the Oscar for best-adapted screenplay instead of the flawed Slumdog was a major disappointment.
Plus 2 for 1 offer on a glass of Perrier Jout Champagne.
