Black Dahlia Cert 15
Josh Hartnett, Aaron Eckhart, Mia Kirshner, Hilary Swank
The story is based on a actual unsolved murder form the 1940s. Young and beautiful Elizabeth Short came to Hollywood, intending to become a famous actress. However, it would not be her career but her brutal murder in 1947 that would bring her fame, as “Th e Black Dahlia”. The investigation of her death became an obsession to millions and  revealed a vast conspiracy throughout the police department. Dwight “Bucky” Bleichert (Josh Hartnett) and Leland “Lee” Blanchard (Aaron Eckhart) are two ex-pugiliststurned- cops working the warrant beat in late 1940Â’s Los Angeles. During a bust, they come upon the gruesome crime scene of Elizabeth Short (Mia Kirshner): a young, desperate Hollywood starlet who was disfi gured, gutted, torn into two pieces, and left to rot. Turning their attention to the Short case, the detectives hit the streets for clues. For Blanchard, the case challenges his sanity and personal relationships (Scarlett Johansson), and he falls further into an obsession with Short. At the same time, Bleichert stumbles into the hands of an enigmatic siren (Hilary Swank) who resembles the dead girl.

 

X-Men: The Last Stand Cert 12
Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen
In this the third instalment and climax of the X-Men trilogy, X-Men: The Last Stand, sees a “cure” for mutancy, which threatens to alter the course of history. For the first time, mutants have a choice: retain their uniqueness, though it isolates and alienates them from the majority
population made up by humans, or give up their powers and become human. Th e opposing viewpoints of mutant leaders Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart), who preaches tolerance, and Magneto (Ian McKellen), who believes in the survival of the fi ttest, are put to the ultimate test -
triggering the war to end all wars. What has set the X-Men films
apart from less successful Comic-book adaptations (Fantastic Four... cough) is itÂ’s thematic undertones, and XMen: The Final Stand will be
no different. Within the framework of an epic, action-packed story,
X3 raises issues with strong contemporary relevance: is conformity an antidote to prejudice? Is it cowardice to give up individuality to fit
in and avoid persecution? Do ends justify means? Is great power a blessing or a curse?

 

The Wicker Man(1973) Cert15
Christopher Lee, Edward Woodward, Britt Ekland
Ahead of the remake starring Nicolas Cage, the cult classic Wicker Man starring Edward Woodward and Britt Ekland has been re-released in an almost unaltered form The story takes place on an isolated, private Scottish island called Summerisle. Edward Woodward playing the part of
mainland police offi cer, Sgt. Howie, arrives to follow up on an anonymous letter claiming a village girl has been missing for a year. He is dismissed by villagers who say no such girl exists. Sgt. Howie, a former Anglican minister maintains a strong religious belief and is horrifi ed by what he fi nds on the island: schoolchildren learning about sexual religious rites and adults seeming to have no inhibitions. An unusual fi lm seemingly based on ancient ritual, but using a rock and folk score straight out of the 1970s and ample use of hippie maidens, including an often naked Britt Ekland.

Kinky Boots Cert 13 PG - Joel Edgerton, Jemima Rooper
Charlie Price (Joel Edgerton) inherits his family’s shoe factory Price & Sons. When his father, a dedicated shoemaker, dies, the sudden upheaval puts a strain on Charlie’s personal life; his fi ancée, Nicola (Jemima Rooper), is none too pleased that the couple will have to put the brakes on their
plan to leave the grim workingclass town of Northampton so that Charlie can pursue a career in marketing. Still, Charlie feels obligated to give the factory his best shot, especially after he discovers the business is in trouble and consequently is forced to fi re 15 long-time employees.
When one soon-to-be former factory worker, Lauren (Sarah-Jane Potts), tells Charlie that perhaps the problem isnÂ’t the workforce, but rather the work product. If the old-fashioned shoes being made by Price & Sons arenÂ’t selling, why not try something else?
