  • 4 APRIL: Hidden Figures
    Critics say:  In heartwarming, crowd-pleasing fashion, Hidden Figures celebrates overlooked -- and crucial -- contributions from a pivotal moment in American history. HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of three-brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

  • 2 MAY:  LATE CHANGE Jasper Jones
    Reviews are divided on this Australian movie. Here are a couple of quotes from trusted sources: "Centered on a 14-year-old boy caught up in a murder mystery involving a part-Aboriginal suspect, this outstanding adaptation of Craig Silvey's novel will appeal strongly to teenage and adult audiences." "Well scripted, shot, and acted, there's very little not to recommend it: it streamlines a story without sacrificing complexity, and it is both entertaining and thoughtful while it's at it." No doubt lifted by the performances of Hugo Weaving and Toni Collette.

  • 6 JUNE: Going in Style
    Old timers seeking revenge on bank which ate their pension fund is something we should all be able to identify with. Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin deliver the goods. "All three stars deliver exactly what you expect from them -- nothing more, nothing new -- but their onscreen familiarity is a strange comfort in itself."

  • 4 JULY: A United Kingdom
    This is a delightful movie and I am so glad it has finally come to Blyth. In 1940s London two people fell in love and became part of modern history. Critics consensus: Well-acted, solidly crafted, and all-around worthy, A United Kingdom presents an absorbing look at a singular true-life love story. Director Amma Asante's third film is a tastefully made true-life story, based around a forgotten romance that caused familial, national and international strife. Watch for the photos of the real couple at the end of the film.
