HIADS Film Showing:

Saving Mr Banks

Starring: Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson, Paul Giamatti, Colin Farrell, Ruth Wilson and Jason Schwartzman.

Two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson and fellow double Oscar winner Tom Hanks star in Disney's SAVING MR. BANKS, inspired by the extraordinary untold tale of how one of the most beloved stories of all time, Mary Poppins, was brought to the big screen.

The film is a poignant, sharply funny and moving recounting of Walt Disney's (Tom Hanks) quest to fulfil a promise to his daughters to make a film of their favourite book, and of its fiercely protective author PL Travers (Emma Thompson), who had no intention of letting her beloved nanny go to Hollywood.

SAVING MR. BANKS follows Walt as he has to pull out all the stops to change PL Travers’ mind and is ultimately forced to reach back into his own childhood to discover the truth about the ghosts that haunt her. Together they set Mary Poppins free to become one of the most endearing films in cinematic history.

Academy Award winner Paul Giamatti, Colin Farrell, Ruth Wilson and Jason Schwartzman round out the terrific cast.

HIADS Film Showing:

The Prison

Premier of this film by Alistair Harris

A modern day take on the Stanford Prison Experiment, "The Prison" explores the extent to which our behaviour can be manipulated by the environment in which we find ourselves. The film shows the experiences of 10 young men as they participate in a psychological study in which they are plunged into a fake but nonetheless hostile prison environment, whereby half are labelled guards, and half are labelled prisoners. However after just a few days of the guards and prisoners settling into their new roles, the experiment goes horribly wrong.

This is a 40 minute film by Alistair Harris which was supported by HIADS members, some of whom appear in the film.

Spider's Web

by Agatha Christie

Clarissa is given to daydreaming. "Supposing I were to come down one morning and find a dead body in the library, what should I do?", she says. And, of course, that is exactly what happens.
She discovers the body of Oliver Costello (the boyfriend of her stepdaughter Pippa's mother) in her drawing-room. Then Clarrisa needs to dispose of the body before her husband comes home with an important foreign politician, so she persuades her three houseguests to become accessories and accomplices.
But before they can effectively get rid of the body, an inspector suddenly arrives to investigate the murder. Who called him? Mildred Peake, the house’s jolly-hockey-stick gardener also gets involved in trying to solve the mystery.

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

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.

The 39 Steps

Patrick Barlow's Olivier Award winning stage adaptation, based on John Buchan's gripping whodunit - memorably filmed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1935 - is now coming to the Station Theatre performed by HIADS.

Nothing has been cut from this hilarious and spectacular version of Britain's most spell-binding thriller - legendary scenes include the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged and the death-defying (or nearly!) finale at the London Palladium!
