HIADS Film Showing:

All is lost

Starring: Robert Redford.

Academy Award winner Robert Redford stars in All Is Lost, an open-water thriller about one man’s battle for survival against the elements after his sailboat is destroyed at sea. Written and directed by Academy Award nominee J.C. Chandor (Margin Call) with a musical score by Alex Ebert (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros), the film is a gripping, visceral and powerfully moving tribute to ingenuity and resilience.

Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man (Redford) wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm. Despite his success in patching the breached hull, his mariner’s intuition and a strength that belies his age, the man barely survives the tempest.

Using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of hailing a passing vessel. But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling and his meager supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face.

Code of Love Present

The Code of love

The Code of Love is an exciting new musical written and composed by local girl, Louise Helyer, and based on the book "The Code of Love" by Andro Linklater. The musical was premiered in August 2013 to rave reviews.

It tells the story of how in 1939, Pamela Kirrage, met Donald Hill, an RAF pilot. After a golden summer of courtship, they became engaged. In September, with Britain now in conflict with Germany, Hill was transferred to the Far East to defend Hong Kong. Sensing that he was caught up in the sweep of great events, he begins a diary in an old school exercise book. However, officers serving abroad were forbidden to keep such records, so Hill devised a secret code that transformed his words into numbers.

When Hong Kong fell to the Japanese and Hill was captured and sent to a prisoner of war camp, he took his diary with him. The Donald Hill who returned from the war, after four brutal years of incarceration, was a dramatically changed man. Though he and Pamela married quickly, once the relief and emotion of their reunion had subsided it was obvious that Donald had been scarred deeply by his experiences. Eventually, tortured by savage flashbacks, he was confined to hospital. Pamela had always known that the numbers in the school book were a code and that somewhere within the lines of figures she would discover the key to understanding Donald's mental collapse.

The Code of Love is an unforgettable love story.

The code was finally deciphered 10 years after Donald’s death by Dr Philip Aston of Surrey University, Guildford.

HIADS Film Showing:

Blue Jasmine

Starring: Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Sally Hawkins. Directed by Woody Allen.

After everything in her life falls to pieces, including her marriage to wealthy businessman Hal (Alec Baldwin), elegant New York socialite Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) moves into her sister Ginger's (Sally Hawkins) modest apartment in San Francisco to try to pull herself back together again.

Jasmine arrives in San Francisco in a fragile mental state, her head reeling from the cocktail of anti-depressants she's on. While still able to project her aristocratic bearing, Jasmine is emotionally precarious and lacks any practical ability to support herself. She disapproves of Ginger's boyfriend Chili (Bobby Cannavale), who she considers another "loser" like Ginger's ex-husband Augie (Andrew Dice Clay). Ginger, recognizing but not fully understanding her sister's psychological instability, suggests that she pursue interior design, a career she correctly intuits that Jasmine won't feel is beneath her. In the meantime, Jasmine begrudgingly accepts work as the receptionist in a dentist's office, where she attracts the unwanted attentions of her boss, Dr. Flicker (Michael Stuhlbarg).

Feeling that her sister might be right about her poor taste in men, Ginger starts seeing Al (Louis C.K.), a sound engineer whom she considers as a step up from Chili. Jasmine sees a potential lifeline when she meets Dwight (Peter Sarsgaard), a diplomat who is quickly smitten with her beauty, sophistication and style.

Jasmine's flaw is that she derives her worth from the way she's perceived by others, while she herself is blind to what is going around her. Delicately portrayed by a regal Cate Blanchett, Jasmine earns our compassion because she is the unwitting instrument of her own downfall. Woody Allen's new drama Blue Jasmine is about the dire consequences that can result when people avert their eyes from reality and the truth they don't want to see.

Jack and the Beanstalk

A Traditional Pantomime by renowned author Alan P Frayn

An hilarious take on the well known fairy story featuring a host of colourful characters to amuse all the family.

There's the gregarious Dame Dotty Dimple, her brave and bright son Jack, his daft brother Simple Simon and their cow Buttermilk. Plus a royal family comprised of dithering King Hubert, Queen Hyacinth, their lovely daughter Princess Primrose and their slow equerry Humphrey.

They all live in fear of the giant Buster Gut-bucket, who is assisted by the wicked witch Picalilli, his henchman Rancid the Ratman and a pair of bungling bailiffs Snatchet & Scarper.

Battling the forces of evil and helping the villages is the good fairy Sugardust, plus a chorus of singers and dancers. And then, of course, there's the magic beans which grow into a giant beanstalk leading up to the giants castle in the sky!

Wife After Death

A comedy written by Eric Chappell.

Comedian and national treasure Dave Thursby has died, and on the day of his funeral, friends and colleagues gather beside his coffin to pay their last respects ...

There's Harvey, who wrote Dave's material; Vi, Harvey's wife; Kevin, Dave's agent, and Kevin's wife Jane Dave's glamorous widow Laura has arranged a funeral to remember, complete with a horse-drawn hearse and an attendant dog.

An unfamiliar woman in flamboyant mourning clothes turns out to be Kay, Dave's ex-wife from before he was famous, and a series of revelations end with Kevin throwing a drink into the coffin and all the guests asking themselves if they ever knew the "real" Dave.

Act II opens three weeks later for the disposal of Dave's ashes. The atmosphere is tense and Kevin is wearing a controversial tie, but as more truths are revealed, even from beyond the crematorium Dave seems to be having the last laugh

"... a terrific evening of love and laughter" ~ The British Theatre Guide
