Clueless with discussion

The Cinematologists return to The Poly again in their guise as the official podcast of the BFI’s Comedy Genius season. They follow their screening of Duck Soup back in November, an event which drew both exhilarated and heated debate from the audience, with a screening of Amy Heckerling’s iconic 1995 Jane Austen reimagining Clueless.

Event Cinema // A Woman of No Importance

An earnest young American woman, a louche English lord, and an innocent young chap join a house party of fin de siècle fools and grotesques. Nearby a woman lives, cradling a long-buried secret. First performed in 1893, Oscar Wilde’s marriage of glittering wit and Ibsenite drama satirised the socially conservative world of the Victorian upper-class, creating a vivid new theatrical voice which still resonates today.

Wildlife

Housewife Jeanette and golf assistant Jerry want nothing more than to be a picture-book happy American family. But when Jerry loses his job - and his pride and purpose with it - he decides to go and fight the wild fires raging in the nearby mountains, leaving Jeanette and their teenage son Joe behind. In his absence, the edges of Jeanette's identity become singed, and Joe's life spirals as he watches his mother tear up her cheery housewife persona, reveals a different persona, and struggle to keep her head above water.

Inside Peace with Q&A

Four years in the making, Inside Peace is a feature documentary which focuses on three compelling characters who were incarcerated at Dominguez State Jail in San Antonio, Texas. These three criminal offenders were marked by generations of violence, addiction and poor social conditions. The film provides a window into their hearts and minds as they embark on a journey of personal discovery by enrolling in a Peace Class - one of the few self-improvement programs offered in prisons that was not faith-based, but which instead concentrated on the individual’s inner strength and self-worth. We follow them as they rebuild their lives from the inside out while struggling with society’s roadblocks and dangers. Following the screening, we invite you to address the Panellists who will be happy to provide more information about the Peace Education Program, its implementation, the many benefits to participants, and their inspiring stories of personal transformation.

Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary Stuart (Saoirse Ronan) rejects the expectations for her to remarry and returns to Scotland to claim her rightful throne, but Scotland and England fall under the rule of the defiant Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie). Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty and throwing the idea of a peaceful kingdom into turmoil. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones - and change the course of history.
