Her

Dir: Spike Jones – USA – 126mins (15)

Set in the Los Angeles of the slight future, the story follows Theodore Twombly, a complex, soulful man who makes his living writing touching, personal letters for other people. Heartbroken after the end of a long relationship, he becomes intrigued with a new, advanced operating system, which promises to be an intuitive entity in its own right, individual to each user. Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet “Samantha,” a bright, female voice, who is insightful, sensitive and surprisingly funny.  As her needs and desires grow, in tandem with his own, their friendship deepens into an eventual love for each other.

Oscar winner for Best Original Screenplay, Spike Jonze (Adaptation, Being John Malkovich) takes the helm for this sweet, soulful, and smart comedy using just-barely-sci-fi scenario to impart wryly funny wisdom about the state of modern human relationships.

It Happened One Night

Dir: Frank Capra – USA – 105mins (U)

In the first in a series of films that are celebrating an anniversary in 2014, join us in wishing this classic comedy a very happy 80th birthday.

Frank Capra’s seminal screwball comedy, which won all five major Academy Awards for 1934, is still as breezy and beguiling today.

Claudette Colbert plays a spoiled heiress who has married a fortune-hunting aviator, against her father’s objections. Her father has been holding her prisoner aboard his yacht, but Ellie swims ashore in her clothes, and eventually slips onto a Greyhound bus bound for New York.  Here she meets newspaper reporter Peter Warne (Clark Gable), who has recently been fired for drinking on the job. Peter gets the last seat on the bus — but when he gets up to argue with the bus driver, Ellie takes his seat. Since it is the last seat on the bus, they have to share it. When Ellie has her purse stolen and she refuses to report it, Peter begins to suspect something. The next morning, they both miss the bus after a leisurely breakfast, and Peter reveals that he knows her identity. She makes a deal with him: if he helps her get to New York, he can write a scoop about her for his paper … but things don’t go according to plan.

This movie set the pace for the “screwball” comedy and has the stamp of glorious old-Hollywood quality.  It is a total joy today as it was 80 years ago.

Seann Walsh: The Lie-In King

Fresh from wowing audiences at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe, comedy’s fastest rising star Seann Walsh returns to the Poly with an all-new  highly anticipated live show to show the world that he is the Lie-In King.

Star of Channel 4’s ‘Stand Up For The Week’, BBC1’s ‘Live At The Apollo’ and ‘Michael McIntryre’s Comedy Roadshow’, and Dave’s ‘Argumental’, Seann is a charming and charismatic natural born observational storyteller, and one of the most frighteningly precocious talents to emerge from the UK comedy circuit in years.

Seann’s other recent TV appearances include: Channel 4’s Comedy Gala Live At The 02 2012/13, Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC2), Celebrity Juice (ITV2), Mock The Week (BBC2), 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4) and Alan Carr: Chatty Man (Channel4)

Within two years of his first comedy performance, Seann was the winner of the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year. Shortly after other accolades included; Chortle Best Breakthrough Act Nominee 2010 and Chortle Best Compere Nominee 2011.

Seann Walsh currently stars in his very own brand new television series ‘Seann Walsh World’ on Comedy Central.  Airing on Tuesday nights at 9pm for 13 episodes, the show mixes stand-up comedy with viral internet video clips as Seann delves in to his life as a young, single 26 year old comedian. Later this year, Seann will also star in Comedy Central’s new original sitcom, ‘Big Bad World’.

“Sharp, creative observational comedy… See him now, before the stadium tour” - Sunday Times

“…with the looks, gags and charm to become something quite special, Walsh is this generation’s Dylan Moran” - Time Out

Project Wild Thing

Cornwall Wildlife Trust’s junior section Fox Club invite you to a very exciting event: a screening of the feature-length documentary film Project Wild Thing.

Director: David Bond – UK – 82mins (PG)

Filmmaker David Bond is a worried man. His kids’ waking hours are dominated by a cacophony of marketing and a screen dependence threatening to turn them into glassy-eyed zombies. They spend way too much time indoors – not like it was back in his day. He decides it’s time to get back to nature – literally.

 This ambitious film takes a revealing and funny look at a complex and worrying issue; how children in the UK are becoming increasingly disconnected from nature. It follows David and his family as they attempt to ignite a national movement to get more kids (and their folks!) outside and reconnecting with nature.

Please join us at this special screening of a film that’s sweeping the nation. Get ready to be inspired!

Cornwall Wildlife Trust is the county’s leading wildlife charity with over 16,000 members. For over 50 years the Trust has been protecting Cornwall’s wildlife and wild places both at land and at sea through its conservation work and vital awareness raising. It owns and maintains 57 nature reserves which are home to many nationally important species.

The Trust also has a junior branch, Fox Club, inspiring future generations to care for our precious countryside and its wildlife through regular fun educational activities.

A £3 ‘donation’ is being asked for each ticket to cover the costs of this screening. Any further donations towards the project made on the night will be gratefully received.

All is Lost

Dir: J C Chandor – USA – 106mins (12A)

The first time we meet Robert Redford’s nameless character, his sailboat is flooding, the result of a stray shipping container in the middle of the Indian Ocean.  From that straight forward introduction unfolds a remarkable tale of survival in the face of maritime misfortune – for, as the title, suggests, it only gets worse from there.

For the audience, this is a rare gift, a master class in minimalist acting from one of the true icons of cinema.  In a virtually wordless, tour-de-force performance, Redford reminds us that he’s always been one of film’s  greatest listeners – keenly observant and enormously expressive with the subtlest of gestures.  And so it is here, as he conveys resourcefulness, resilience and primal fear in supple, understated strokes.

All Is Lost is very pure film-making, set entirely on the water, without dialogue, just showing us the man’s fight to survive from moment to moment.  Superb, brilliantly conceived, totally immersive and compelling from first frame to last.

The Patrol

Dir: Tom Petch - UK – 83mins (15)

Voted Film of the Festival at last year’s Raindance Festival, this is a gritty and downbeat account of British soldiers serving soul-destroying time in Afghanistan.

Drawing on his own experiences of life in the army, Petch paints a convincing picture of demoralised troops; bitching about the shabby state of their weaponry, losing faith in the judgments of their superiors, generally disenchanted with risking life and limb in a war that is not their own.

There’s much to admire in this low-budget first film which could be seen as Britain’s answer to “The Hurt Locker”.

20 Feet from Stardom

Dir:  Morgan Neville – USA – 12A  (89mins)
Millions know their voices, but hardly anyone knows their names.
In this compelling Oscar winning documentary shines the spotlight on the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century.
Triumphant and heart-breaking in equal measure, the film is both a tribute to the unsung voices who brought shape and style to popular music and a reflection on the conflicts, sacrifices and rewards of a career spent harmonizing with others.    These gifted artists span a range of styles, genres and eras of popular music, but each has a uniquely fascinating and personal story to share of life spent in the shadows of superstardom.
Along with rare archival footage and a peerless soundtrack are intimate interviews with Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Mick Jagger and Sting to name just a few.  However these world-famous figures, take a back seat to the backup singers whose lives and stories take centre stage for once.

Feccles: As You Like It

“All the world’s a stage” with Shakespeare’s classic pastoral comedy: a twisted tale of cross-dressing, bad poetry and romance.

Lovers Rosalind and Orlando are both forced to flee to the Forest of Arden, an enchanting place filled with intrigue and somewhat peculiar characters. In a tangle of love, lust and mistaken identity, the rules of romance and gender roles are turned upside down in a play which ultimately reflects how baffling yet utterly wonderful life can be.

This simply marvellous 1920s style adaptation is guaranteed to get your toes tapping with sparkling period costume, music and dance.

Local university drama society FECCLES is delighted to return to the Poly after its recent success with Stoppard’s The Real Inspector Hound and Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus. More information on us can be found on www.feccles.co.uk​ or on our Twitter and Facebook pages (FECCLESDrama).

Under the Skin

PLEASE NOTE: THIS FILM IS NOT SCREENING ON MONDAY 19th BUT ON TUESDAY 20th & WEDNESDAY 21st.

Dir: Jonathan Glazer – UK – 107 mins (15)

Extraordinary sci-fi thriller, at once haunting, hypnotic and deeply disturbing, thanks to stunning cinematography, a chilling soundtrack and an instantly iconic performance from Scarlett Johansson that is nothing less than astonishing.

In a stunning early sequence  of metamorphosis, the naked femme fatale dons the attire of her predecessor and goes out on the prowl in a non-descript van, effortlessly procuring not-so gullible lads from the backstreets of Glasgow.  Through her alien eyes, the world appears desolate.  Filmed on location in Scotland, the film feels like a fusion of the realism of Ken Loach with the surrealism of  David Lynch.

Glazer, who previously directed Sexy Beast, has created an entirely distinctive film, both creepy and luminous in its metaphysical  precision.

This eclectic mix of promising talent and fresh ideas includes Sleeping With The Fishes the WINNER for Best Short Animation. Directed by Yousif Al-Khalifa.

Keeping Up With the Joneses described by Peter Bradshaw in The Guardian as “the most ambitious film … with a terrific performance from Maxine Peake”. The impeccable wife of an MP confronts the imprisoned reality of her life after being taken hostage by two of her husband’s ‘business associates’

Room 8 – WINNER for Best Short Film Directed by James W. Griffiths. A prisoner makes a fantastical discovery when thrown into a cell with a terse and unsettling inmate; but in an audacious endeavour to escape his captors, he unearths a malevolent trick and the secrets of the cell are fully revealed.

The Double

Dir: Richard Ayoade – UK – 93 mins (15)

Richard Ayoade’s second feature, after his sublime”Submarine”, is an adaptation of a Dostoyevsky story about a shy, mild-mannered man who is confronted by his confident, aggressive doppelgänger.

Jesse Eisenberg plays Simon James, a meek office worker who’s belittled by his colleagues and shunned by Hannah, the elfin girl who works the office’s giant, clanking photocopier.  Eisenberg also plays James Simon, who arrives unannounced, wins over the boss and immediately starts dating Hannah. No-one reacts to the duplication, because Simon’s such a nobody.  You don’t know it’s a copy if you haven’t seen the original.

Ayoade has produced a slyly witty and impassively surreal psychological nightmare which is also very funny.  The style is completely his own, unlike anything you’ve seen in cinemas in quite some time.

Chorale – A Sam Shepard Roadshow

Sam Shepard is America’s most adventurous and poetic living playwright. Sam Shepard begins and ends with a road: the route to promise and fulfilment, or damnation – though sometimes the two seem perilously close.

Here is a rare opportunity to experience his work through this unique roadshow that travels the length of that road, backwards, forwards, and any other way it is possible to go. For our stop on the road at The Poly, Falmouth the roadshow comprises of the plays The War in Heaven and The Animal (You) playing in repertory with the film Savage/Love by Academy Award winning director Shirley Clarke.

The War in Heaven by Joseph Chaikin and Sam Shepard

A moving plea from both a fallen angel, and a man struggling to be heard once more.
Co-written with actor Joseph Chaikin after he was left Aphasic following a major stroke. Simon Usher returns to the piece after directing Chaikin in the UK premiere at the Royal Court in 1987.

The Animal (You) created by Jack Tarlton and Simon Usher using Sam Shepard’s works

A drive through the landscape of Sam Shepard’s poetry and prose, played loud to the standard rock and roll progression of C, A minor, F, G chords. Many of the themes that stalk Shepard’s work for theatre are laid bare in these tales that he has been writing over the last forty years.

Savage/Love by Sam Shepard and Joseph Chaikin

Academy Award winning director Shirley Clarke captures Obie award winning actor Joseph Chaikin’s extraordinary solo performance.

In addition there will be an opportunity to attend a solo gig after the show by Herons! who provides live music for the performances and whose work is reminiscent of Sam Shepard’s music. Herons! has toured extensively across Europe and the UK supporting and playing with the likes of John Cooper Clarke and Hermes.

The project grew from Making the Sound of Loneliness produced by Actors Touring Company and presented at Latitude Festival 2012.

“Evocatively conjures up all those endless highways, motels and empty badlands that dominate Sam Shepard’s work.” Jonathan Lovett, The Stage, on ATC’s Making the Sound of Loneliness.

A genderless riot from a little old force to be reckoned with. Sanders goes hard-pedal without too much fuss. Forty-five plus jokes, six props, one hero and I dare say a bit of heartbreak (you) and a smattering of ground-break (her).

Sanders generally, absolutely, ultimately nails it. Sleaze: turned down. Clothed: fully.

Trashed

Dir: Candida Brady – USA – 98mins (12)

Untrashed Cornwall wants you to see this very important film.

This is a powerful film about a local and global problem – Waste.  Academy Award winning actor Jeremy Irons travels around the world discovering the destructive effects of waste everywhere, from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in the North Pacific to children swimming among leaking bags of rubbish; and we learn about chlorinated dioxins and toxic pollutants from activities such as incineration.

This is not a film that is gloomy and the film’s strength is in the hope it gives that by understanding the effects of waste and taking action in our communities we can stop the trashing of our beautiful world.  Jeremy Irons says “We’ve made this movie, because there are so many people who feel strongly the urgent need for the problem of ‘waste’ and ‘sustainability’ to be addressed”. The film shows that change is not only essential but is happening.

Untrashed Cornwall is a group of people who have come together having been inspired by this film to be active in improving waste generation and management in Cornwall.

After the film we hope you will join us in the bar for discussion.

Simon Munnery

An evening with… SIMON MUNNERY

Dubbed “One of the most consistently original and imaginative minds in comedy” will be making his debut at The Poly this July. Cutting his teeth in the 90’s alternative comedy scene saw Munnery brushing shoulders with the likes of Stewart Lee, Richard Herring, Steve Coogan and Patrick Marber to name but a few.

Known through-out the 90’s-2000’s for a whole host of television and radio roles – Alan Parker “Urban Warrior”, Attention Scum! And Cluub Zarathustra – however Simon is at his best in live performance.

Having toured worldwide, created a new show each year Simon’s experimental comic routines are truly something to behold. As intellectual as it is surreal and often described as where comedy meets art, Simon Munnery’s new show is not something to be missed.

Simon Munnery is an avant-garde comedy god. Ambitious, artistic and hugely funny” Time Out

A brand new stand up show about being bamboozled by the modern world. Perennial grouchy young man Lloyd Langford is annoyed by quite a few things. And he’d like to tell you about them. If you’ve ever been annoyed by advertising, fashion, other people, electrical equipment, porn or pandas then there’ll be something here for you. Join Lloyd for a show jam-packed with gags, anecdotes, gripes, grievances, riffs, character assassinations and occasional exasperated pleas to the sky. It’s a cracking night of stand up comedy for you. And a sort of therapy for him, I guess.
