TESTAMENT OF YOUTH (2015)
Starring Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Taron Egerton, Colin Morgan, Dominic West, Emily Watson, Hayley Atwell, Anna Chancellor, Miranda Richardson and Joanna Scanlan. Directed by James Kent.

A powerful story of love, war and remembrance, based on the First World War memoir by Vera Brittain, which has become the classic testimony of that war from a woman’s point of view. A searing journey from youthful hopes and dreams to the edge of despair and back again, it’s a film about young love, the futility of war and how to make sense of the darkest times.

HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS AT PARTIES
Starring Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, Ruth Wilson, Matt Lucas, Mark Douglas, Elarica Gallacher, Joanna Scanlan, Alex Sharp, Ethan Lawrence and Nansi Nsue. Directed by John Cameron Mitchell.

Enn is a shy teenage punk rocker in 70s suburban England, with two close friends, Vic and John. One night they all sneak into a party where they meet a group of seemingly otherworldly girls; at first they think it’s a cult, but eventually come to realise the girls are actually from another world - outer space.

The leaders of this alien colony have a wicked plan in mind, but that doesn’t stop Enn from falling madly in love with Zan, one of the colony’s key members. Their burgeoning romance sets in motion a series of increasingly sensational events that will lead to the ultimate showdown of punks versus aliens, and test the bonds of friendship, family, and true love.
