Preview: Handsome Devil + Q&A with director John Butler
Wed 26 Apr 18:10 NFT1 p12 Flare Guide
Ireland 2016. Dir-Scr John Butler. Prod Rebecca O'Flanagan, Robert Walpole. With Fionn O'Shea, Nicholas Galitzine, Andrew Scott. Digital. This film runs 95min and has been given a 15 Cert. Courtesy of Icon Film Distribution
Films don’t come much more effortlessly likable than Handsome Devil, John Butler’s witty Irish charmer, which follows the turbulent path of a geeky 16-year-old boy as he navigates his way through a year at boarding school. Ned is not like the other boys. He would much rather hide away in his room and listen to David Bowie than play rugby with the sports-obsessed lads who surround him. But Ned’s isolated existence looks set to be upended when he is assigned a new roommate, a brooding hunk named Conor. It seems like a match made in hell. But as we all know, appearances can be deceiving. Unapologetically light-hearted, yet overflowing with intelligence and insight, this trip back to school provides the perfect lesson in the power of being yourself, and the strength it takes not to compromise.

Please note this late addition to the programme:
The Handmaiden
See playdates below.
South Korea 2016. Dir Park Chan-wook. With Kim Min-hee, Kim Tae-ri, Ha Jung-woo, Cho Jin-woong. 145min. Digital. EST. 18. A Curzon Artificial Eye release.
Young pickpocket Sook-hee is enlisted by Fujiwara, a suave con artist claiming to be a count, to work as a handmaiden for wealthy heiress Lady Hideko. Sequestered in a grand mansion by her pervy black-tongued uncle, Hideko is looking for a way out and Fujiwara expects Sook-hee to help him charm his way into the role of Hideko’s husband. But the plan is complicated when the haughty Mistress begins to fall for her new lady-in-waiting. Inspired by Welsh writer Sarah Waters’ 2002 novel Fingersmith, The Handmaiden relocates the narrative from Victorian England to 1930s Korea, which is under Japanese rule. Marking Park Chan-wook’s first Korean film after Stoker, The Handmaiden continues the theme of revenge so deliciously and obsessively explored in the director's Vengeance trilogy. But here, the erotic is foregrounded, through immaculately composed images that imbue every object with a seductive energy, so that even a pair of gloves thrums with scintillating power. A foxy concoction of exquisite style and thrilling storytelling, The Handmaiden will leave you breathless. Kate Taylor BFI London Film Festival.

The Levelling
From Fri 12 May (see playdates below)
We are pleased to announce that Ellie Kendrick will attend the screening on Fri 12 May 20:40 for a Q&A. This will now take place in NFT3.
UK 2016. Dir Hope Dickson Leach. With Ellie Kendrick, David Troughton, Jack Holden. 84min. Digital. 15. A Peccadillo Pictures release.
In this first feature debut that premiered at the BFI London Film Festival, writer/director Hope Dickson Leach delivers a hugely impressive film about a middle class farming family's crisis, set against the backdrop of the Somerset floods. Clover (Ellie Kendrick, The Diary of Anne Frank) is finishing a veterinary course when her beloved brother dies and she is called home to her family's struggling Somerset farm. Her mother died some time ago and it's clear that Clover and her garrulous father Aubrey (David Troughton) do not get on. Debut writer/director (and LFF short film alumnus) Hope Dickson Leach gives the talented duo a complex, finely-crafted script to work with, offering a drama that works on many different levels. The story is framed against the devastating Somerset floods, with parallels drawn between the fractured family and their dying farm. Nanu Segal's expressive photography of the land, accentuated by Ben Baird's rich sound design - both elements unshowy but wholly cinematic - underpin the challenges the family face. Dickson Leach also skilfully dismantles assumptions about privilege of gentleman English farmers delivering a sophisticated feature of deep emotional heft and power.
Tricia Tuttle, Deputy Head of Festivals.

June Programme

Sonic Cinema presents: The Unfilmables - Wrangler and Francesca & Mica Levi
Fri 9 June 19:00 NFT1
The history of cinema is teeming with stories of mythical films which never made it onto screen. Works such as Stanley Kubrick's Napoleon , David Lynch's Return of the Jedi and Alejandro Jodorowsky's Dune are famously unproduced masterpieces; masterpieces simply because they can only ever exist in the imagination. The Unfilmables is a response to the greatest films never made. Wrangler (featuring Stephen Mallinder, ex-Cabaret Voltaire, Benge and Phil Winter from Tunng) and Francesca and Mica Levi ( Under the Skin Original Soundtrack, Jackie Original Soundtrack, Micachu and the Shapes) calibrate film, music and imagination to bring lost film concepts to life in two live audio-visual performances.

The Tourist - As imagined by Wrangler. Visuals by Chris Turner and Dan Conway
Regarded by many as one of the greatest sci-fi scripts never made, The Tourist tells the story of a sex-charged alien underworld in the heart of Manhattan. After attracting attention from luminaries of the film world including visionary director Francis Ford Coppola and Quadrophenia 's Franc Roddam, the film ultimately fell into production limbo. Centred around Stephen Mallinder's position as one of the world's foremost electronic music pioneers through his work with Cabaret Voltaire and featuring Phil Winter of Tunng and acclaimed electronic producer Benge, Wrangler will provide a live soundtrack to the dark script with visuals from Chris Turner and Dan Conway.

The Colour of Chips - As imagined by Francesca and Mica Levi
Based on the brilliant Armenian filmmaker Sergei Parajanov's most famous work The Colour of Pomegranates , Oscar and BAFTA-nominated composer and Micachu & The Shapes bandleader Mica Levi and her sister Francesca Levi's The Colour Of Chips reinterprets the obscure gem as a lost British classic set in the North of England. Commissioned by Live Cinema UK in partnership with CineCity Brighton and HOME Manchester. Supported by This Way Up Exhibition Innovation Fund, a partner of the BFI Film Audience Network, and Arts Council England.
Tickets £20, concs £16 (BFI Members pay £2 less).
