Philomena

Best film nominated : OSCARS®, BAFTA®, Golden Globe®.

Starring Judi Dench, Steve Coogan, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Simone Lahbib, Charlie Murphy

Falling pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena (Judi Dench) was sent to the convent of Roscrea to be looked after as a "fallen woman". When her baby was only a toddler, he was taken away by the nuns for adoption in America. Philomena spent the next fifty years searching for him but with no success. Then she met Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan), a world-weary political journalist who happened to be intrigued by her story. Together they set off to America on a journey that would not only reveal the extraordinary story of Philomena's son, but also create an unexpectedly close bond between Philomena and Martin. The film is a compelling narrative of human love and loss that ultimately celebrates life, showing that there is laughter even in the darkest places.

Hayling Island Amateur Dramatic Society present:

The Magistrate

by Arthur Wing Pinero

With his flirtatious air and developed taste for adult pastimes such as smoking, gambling and flirting, it is hard to believe that Cis Farringdon is only 14. That is because he isn’t.
Cis’s mother, Agatha lopped five years from her true age when she married the amiable and ingenuous Magistrate, Aeneas Posket. The imminent arrival of her son’s Godfather, sends Agatha incognito to the Hotel Des Princes to warn him of her deception. However, unbeknown to her, that is where her delinquent son has cajoled his otherwise staid stepfather into joining him for a night of fun and games. High spirited carousing leads to a police raid and there follows a night of outrageous activity as the trapped guests make desperate attempts to conceal their identities from the police, and each other.
A satisfactory conclusion must be reached the next day when Posket, who has escaped but is very much the worse for wear, finds himself presiding as the Magistrate of the day at court.

HIADS Film Showing:

Captain Phillips

Multi-award winning and nominated : OSCARS®, BAFTA®, Golden Globe®.

Starring Tom Hanks, Catherine Keener, Max Martini, Barkhad Abdi

Tom Hanks stars in this Academy Award-nominated drama directed by Paul Greengrass based on the real life hijacking of a US cargo ship by Somali pirates. The Maersk Alabama became the first US cargo ship to be hijacked in 200 years when heavily armed Somalis boarded the vessel on the 8th of April 2009. As commander of the ship, Captain Richard Phillips (Hanks) inevitably found himself at the heart of events. Held hostage by the pirates under the command of Muse (Barkhad Abdi), Phillips attempts to protect both his crew and ship to the best of his ability. However, as the drama plays out and Phillips spends more time in the company of his Somali captors, he gradually comes to realise that they have a story, too. Far from the greedy, heartless thugs of pirate lore, the Somalis may well represent the forces of globalisation as surely as the Maersk Alabama - the underside. With the stakes high, the crisis intensifies and someone will have to pay the price... The film was nominated for Oscars for Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor (Abdi) and won the BAFTA for Best Supporting Actor (Abdi).

Hayling Island Amateur Dramatic Society present:

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.
