Before I Go To Sleep

Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth star in an intriguing amnesia thriller with an extraordinary twist! Each morning, Christine Lucas (Nicole Kidman) awakes with no memory. She thinks she's 27, but she's actually 40. Her patient husband, Ben (Colin Firth), explains that this is the result of a traumatic accident. She stores up information each day, but by the following morning it has been erased. Doctor Nash (Mark Strong) reveals that he has been working with Christine on her condition and has encouraged her to keep a video diary. But as secrets emerge and her doubts and suspicions grow, she begins to believe that she can trust nobody! Produced by Ridley Scott and adapted by '28 Weeks Later' writer Rowan Joffe from S.J. Watson's international bestseller, this an absorbing, tautly-scripted twisty-turny mystery.

Scarlett Johansson stars in a breathtaking action-thriller about a woman who accidentally develops superhuman powers. In Taiwan, terrified young American Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) is abducted by a gang of brutal drug traffickers. Telling her that she is to become their mule, they sew packets of narcotics into her stomach. But when these leak into her bloodstream, Lucy undergoes an astonishing transformation. As her brain becomes supercharged, she quickly acquires incredible strength, vast intellectual capacity and amazing telekinetic powers. These allow her to turn the tables on her captors. The rapidly evolving Lucy then reaches out to academic Professor Norman (Morgan Freeman), who theorises that we use only 10% of our mental capacity. But what will happen to her when she reaches 100%? Luc Besson, writer/director of 'Nikita' and 'The Fifth Element', has created some of the screen's most extraordinary female action heroes. With 'Lucy', he takes the genre to a new level.


Unlikely allies join forces against a common enemy in this feelgood British comedy-drama based on an amazing true story. During the London Gay Pride March of 1984, activist Mark (Ben Schnetzer) makes a momentous decision. As a gesture of solidarity, he decides to form an organisation called Lesbians and Gay Men Support the Miners. They raise heaps of cash, but can't find any striking mineworkers who are prepared to accept it. Eventually, they make contact with a small Welsh pit village, whose representative, Dai (Paddy Considine), invites the activists to pay a visit. The stage is set for old prejudices to be challenged and new friendships formed. This rousing, fact-based crowd-pleaser in the tradition of 'The Full Monty' boasts a terrific British cast. Its ranks include Imelda Staunton as the formidable community organiser Hefina, Bill Nighy as shy and cultured miner Cliff, and Dominic West as flamboyantly gay actor Jonathan.

The Hundred Foot Journey

Two cultures collide in a delicious, heart-warming foodie drama starring Helen Mirren. The picturesque village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France is home to one of the country's most prestigious restaurants. This Michelin starred temple of haute cuisine is overseen by snooty proprietress Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren). But the arrival of the displaced Indian Kadam family shakes things up. Bullish Papa (Om Puri) decides to open an Indian restaurant just across the road, with his culinary genius son Hassan (Manish Dayal) as head chef. Gastronomic war promptly breaks out! But Hassan's interest in new flavours - not to mention Mme Mallory's lovely sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon) - leads to an extraordinary blending of cultures. This enchanting drama is adapted from Richard Morais's bestseller by 'Chocolat' director Lasse Hallstrom. Cast opposite the great Helen Mirren is Indian superstar Om Puri, who's best known here for performance in 'East is East'.
