Closed: On the Silver Screen – Films to delight and entertain in January

Molly’s Game

Starring Jessica Chastain and Idris Elba, Molly’s Game tells the thrilling true story of Molly Bloom, the mastermind behind a glamourous, underground poker empire whose players included the rich, famous and most powerful men in America.

In a career-best performance, Chastain portrays Molly as she transforms herself into the poker princess, running high-stakes games in LA and New York.

But Molly’s world comes crashing down when the FBI come after her, suspecting ties to the Russian mob.

Academy Award winning writer Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) delivers a quick-witted, fiery directorial debut with this riveting portrait of a smart, talented young woman who gambled everything, won big, then lost it all.


Dazza has a passion for barbecuing, but when he accidentally gives his neighbours food poisoning, his reputation and dignity are on the line.

To make amends he seeks tutelage from the tyrannical Scottish chef known simply as ‘The Butcher’.

Together they enter an international barbecue competition, pitting Dazza’s homespun techniques against the world’s best barbecue chefs.

Starring a stellar Australian cast including Shane Jacobson, Magda Szubanski, Manu Fidel, Nicholas Hammond and Lara Robinson, this film will be a treat.

Finding Your Feet

When ‘Lady’ Sandra Abbott (Imelda Staunton) discovers that her husband of forty years is having an affair with her best friend, she seeks refuge with her estranged, bohemian, older sister Bif (Celia Imrie).

Sandra couldn’t be more different to her outspoken, serial dating, free spirited sibling.

But it turns out different is just what Sandra needs and she reluctantly lets best friend drag her along to her community dance class, where gradually she starts finding her feet… and romance.

Featuring a star studded cast including Imelda Staunton, Celia Imrie, Timothy Spall, Joanna Lumley and David Hayman, Finding Your Feet is a hilarious and heart-warming modern comedy proving that it’s never too late to start again.
