Great films this weekend…


This weekend looks like it’s going to be dull, wet and well just sad so here’s something to get you out the house….

The Illusionist
Opening the Edinburgh International Film Festival to critical acclaim this year, The Illusionist is an old-style, hand-drawn animation that brings to life scenes from Scotland in the 1950s with eerie directness. A semi-silent movie, with rudimentary, mumbled fragments of dialogue, it tells the story of an old-fashioned variety-turn conjuror, who travels all the way from France to Scotland and acquires a companion, a girl from rural Scotland, who shares tatty theatrical digs with him as a daughter-figure. It is in Edinburgh that the illusionist becomes disillusioned, but brings off an authentic act of human magic.

Tamara Drewe
When Tamara Drewe sashays back to the bucolic village of her youth, life for the locals is thrown upside down. Tamara, once an ugly duckling, has been transformed into a devastating beauty. As infatuations, jealousies, love affairs and career ambitions collide among the inhabitants of the neighbouring farmsteads, Tamara sets a contemporary comedy of manners into play using the oldest magic in the book – sex appeal.

Dates & times:

Diary of a Whimpy Kid
Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a live-action adaptation of Jeff Kinney’s illustrated novel about a wise-cracking sixth grade student, for whom middle school is the dumbest idea ever invented. It’s a place rigged with hundreds of social landmines, not the least of which are morons, wedgies, swirlies, bullies and lunchtime banishment to the cafeteria floor. To survive the never-ending ordeal and attain the recognition and status he feels he so richly deserves, Greg devises an endless series of can’t-miss schemes, all of which, of course, go awry.

Dates & times:

Sat 6 & Sun 7 Nov 1.30pm
