The Guilty  Thursday 18th April 8 pm

Director:  Gustav Möller

Demoted to deskwork and awaiting a disciplinary hearing, Agent Asger is working the night shift in an emergency call room. When he receives a call from a woman who has been abducted his resolve and arrogance are tested as it becomes a race against time to locate her.  Taking place in real time and in a single location, nothing is quite as it seems in this claustrophobic thriller.  Using sound as the primary storytelling tool and with a powerful central performance from Jakob Cedergren, The Guilty is a visceral viewing experience.

With its single setting and real-time story, “The Guilty” is a brilliant genre exercise, a cinematic study in tension. -Brian Tallerico,

Rosie 1Rosie Thursday 30th May 8 pm

Director: Paddy Breathnach

From the pen of Roddy Doyle and directed by Paddy Breathnach (Viva), Rosie is the story of a family without a home. Rosie (Sarah Greene) a mother of four, alongside her partner John Paul, do everything in their power to protect their children and maintain their dignity as the Irish housing crisis threatens their families safety and unity.

Just to Be Sure 1Just to Be Sure Thursday 27th June 8 pm

Director:  Carine Tardieu


When Erwin (Francois Damiens), a bomb disposal expert in his mid-forties, accidentally discovers that his father is not his biological father his world is turned upside down.  As well as tracing his dad he has to juggle his daughter’s unplanned pregnancy and his aspiring relationship with the sparky local veterinarian Anna (Cecile De France), whom, it turns out may or may not be his sister!

With strong performances from all the cast, this is a joyful tale with some moments that touch on the farcical and others that are genuinely touching.  Director Carine Tardieu delivers a warm poignant human comedy about the challenges of being a parent and having one!

Just to Be Sure is the kind of intelligent and rather artful French comedy that doesn’t come around so often nowadays. Tardieu juggles lots of heavy issues with a supremely light touch, making us laugh about what would normally be a series of tragic events… -Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
