You’ll be chuffed

Cinephiles, here’s some news that will have you chuffed! The brilliant Cunard British Film Festival is coming to our shores, bringing the best of the Brits on screen this year. 

Taking over Palace Barracks and Palace James Street to showcase the talent of Britain’s finest filmmakers and actors including Stephen Frears, Sally Hawkins, Colin Farrell, Bill Nighy, and more, you’d be silly to miss a flick in this superb line-up! 

Kicking off on 19 October with the premiere of the highly anticipated Mrs. Harris Goes To Paris, you’ll be whisked away by a whimsical tale based on the popular novel. Running exclusively at the festival for the first week of its release, Cunard British Film Festival attendees will be the first to see the fabulous Lesley Melville as the titular Mrs. Harris embark on a journey through Parisian high fashion. 

007 fans will also be shaken with a special program showcasing six decades of Bond’s iconic style and adventure from the 60th anniversary of Dr.No to On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969), and Skyfall’s 10-year anniversary. 

History buffs will recognise the true story of discovering King Richard III’s remains beneath a Leicester car park in The Lost King – a comedy-drama following a woman who forced academics and scholars to revisit everything they thought they knew about one of Britain’s most controversial kings. 

Other Cunard British Film Festival highlights include The Banshees Of Insherin, a twisted tale of friendship gone awry from makers of In Bruges set against the stunning vistas of the Irish West Coast. Sex Education fans will recognise Emma Mackey in Emily – a captivating portrait of author Emily Brontë. Plus, festival favourite Bill Nighy will touch hearts as a terminally ill man searching for meaning in 1950s London in the life affirming drama, Living. Blimey!
