With this winter’s surprises moving past us, we’re noticing bulbs appearing and the birds waking earlier. As Ian Dury once sang, we’ve got “reasons to be cheerful” and here at the Phoenix, we’re very cheerful about our February and March offerings. For film lovers, this time of year is not just a season of renewal but the season of awards, with BAFTA in February and the Oscars in March we’re pleased we brought almost all of the Best Film nominees to the Phoenix for you. Early in February come see Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto give whip smart performances in DALLAS BUYERS CLUB, a remarkable film based on true events. Ralph Fiennes directs and stars in an adaptation of Claire Tomalin’s book about the secretive and fragile relationship between Charles Dickens and THE INVISIBLE WOMAN. We’ve had a lot of requests to screen THE BOOK THIEF and so we’re thrilled it’s on our programme now. The film’s message that books can have the affirming power to strengthen us through the most difficult ordeal speaks to young and old. For those who like their entertainment quirky and visually compelling, we present a star-studded madcap romp set in an opulent hotel of the 1930s. Directed by Wes Anderson, award-winning creator of Moonrise Kingdom and Rushmore, THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL is definitely worth checking into. And don’t miss the chance to catch up on big hits AMERICAN HUSTLE and THE WOLF OF WALL STREET, screening one-time only in our Sunday Matinee series. PLUS: Our SCREEN ARTS strand of programming (p29-30) is chock full of mustsees. KIDS CLUB (p21-22) never fails to delight our younger audience members, and check out our special HALF TERM programming (p23). Meanwhile the PHOENIX CAFÉ staff are planning a wine tasting and experimenting with new cakes. It’s too bad there’s not an award for Best Audience, but if there was, loyal and discerning Phoenix fans, you would surely get our vote. Elizabeth Taylor-Mead, Executive Director. 1

FROM FRIDAY 31 janUaRY
Inside Llewyn Davis 15
1hr 45. USA/France 2013. Directed by Joel & Ethan Coen. With Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman. Firm Phoenix favourites Joel and Ethan Coen return with their first film since 2010’s multi-award winning True Grit. Mapping out a week in the life of an obscure folk singer (Oscar Isaac, Che, W.E.) as he attempts to make a name for himself in New York’s Greenwich Village in 1961, the darkly comic Inside Llewyn Davies is loosely inspired by the pre-fame struggles of Bob Dylan. A typically virtuoso cast includes perennial Coen performer John Goodman (Raising Arizona, Barton Fink), Carey Mulligan (Never Let Me Go), and Justin Timberlake (The Social Network), and the soundtrack is already inviting comparisons with the phenomenally successful soundtrack to the Coen’s own O Brother, Where Art Thou?
The Railway Man 15
1hr 56. Australia/UK 2013. Directed by Jonathan Teplitzky. With Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, Stellan Skarsgård. Eric Lomax (Colin Firth, The King’s Speech, A Single Man) was one of thousands of Allied prisoners of war forced to work on the construction of the Thai/Burma railway during WW2. His experiences left him traumatised and shut off from the world. Years later, he meets the magnetic Patti (Nicole Kidman, The Hours, Australia) on a train and falls in love. Patti is determined to rid Eric of his demons and makes a discovery that leaves her facing a terrible decision. Should Eric be given a chance to come face-to-face with his past or will it tear him further apart? Adapted from Lomax’s autobiography, this compelling story will appeal to history buffs and cinephiles alike.
FROM FRIDAY 7 FeBRUaRY
FROM FRIDAY 14 FeBRUaRY
August: Osage County 15
2hrs 01. USA 2014. Directed by John Wells. With Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Chris Cooper, Benedict Cumberbatch, Abigail Breslin, Juliette Lewis, Sam Shepard, Dermot Mulrone, Misty Upham. Based on his Pultizer Prize-winning play of the same name, Tracy Letts’ darkly comic drama features the talents of Meryl Streep as Violet Weston, the pill-popping matriarch of a dysfunctional family. Streep leads a stellar cast including a small part for home-grown talent Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Frankenstein), and there are some wonderful performances from Julia Roberts and Juliette Lewis (among others) as the strong-willed Weston women brought together by a family crisis. The enforced proximity and oppressive Oklahoma heat combine to create an atmosphere of tension which inevitably brings explosive consequences as bitter truths are told and buried secrets uncovered.
Dallas Buyers Club 15
1hr 57. USA 2013. Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée. With Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leto, Jennifer Garner. Dallas, 1985. Homophobia is rife and hard-living redneck Ron Woodruff (played by a famously-depleting Matthew McConnaughey) conforms to the stereotype. A shocking revelation about his health places him in an unthinkable situation alongside people with whom he would never have associated. In desperation and against medical advice, he joins forces with transgender Rayon (Jared Leto) in order to access the unlicensed medication that they hope will prolong their lives. Their fight for survival turns into something more, and they find a common spirit of entrepreneurship as well as a desire to enjoy the remainder of their lives to the fullest - however long that may be.
FROM FRIDAY 21 FeBRUaRY
FROM FRIDAY 28 FeBRUaRY
The Invisible Woman 12A
1hr 51. UK 2013. Directed by Ralph Fiennes. With Ralph Fiennes, Felicity Jones, Michelle Fairley. With a beautifully-crafted script by Abi Morgan (Shame, The Iron Lady) based on Claire Tomalin’s biography of schoolteacher Nelly Ternan (played by Felicity Jones), The Invisible Woman takes place following the death of literary great Charles Dickens, Nelly’s erstwhile lover. As she mourns, we glimpse through her memories of their happiest and most poignant moments, and details of their secret affair are pieced together alongside revelations about the darker side of Dickens’ personality and relationship with his wife Catherine (Joanna Scanlon). This captivating and handsome period drama was filmed in locations around southern England including Harrow School.
The Book Thief 12A
2hrs 11. USA/Germany 2013. Directed by Brian Percival. With Sophie Nélisse, Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson. Based on the acclaimed novel by Markus Zusak, The Book Thief tells the story of Liesel (Sophie Nelisse), who is sent to live with foster parents (Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson) by her Communist-sympathising mother in Nazi Germany. Initially unable to read, Liesel develops a passionate interest in books, which she shares with a Jewish refugee, Max, who is living in secret in her foster parents’ basement. With a narration by Death himself (voiced by Roger Allam), The Book Thief sees the horrors of the Nazi regime slowly reveal themselves as Liesel’s awareness of the world around her grows.

The Grand Budapest Hotel tbc
Running time tbc. USA/Germany 2014. Directed by Wes Anderson. With Saoirse Ronan, Jude Law, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum, Ralph Fiennes. Wes Anderson, one of the most distinctive stylists working in cinema today, returns with another impeccably realised and subtly moving comic tale. Following the success of 2012’s Moonrise Kingdom (Oscar-nominated for best original screenplay), The Grand Budapest Hotel tells the story of concierge Gustave H, and the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting. Anderson’s usual ensemble – including Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Adrien Brody, and Owen Wilson – all appear amongst the supporting cast, alongside Ralph Fiennes as the legendary Gustave in a film that looks like it might be the director’s funniest yet.
Under The Skin tbc
1hr 48. UK 2014. Directed by Jonathan Glazer. With Scarlett Johansson, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Paul Brannigan. Visually and aurally audacious and as slippery in form as its central character, Jonathan Glazer’s elliptical sci-fi about an alien creature (Scarlett Johansson) who preys on human men is a brilliant amalgam of fantasy and reality Through alien eyes, the world appears desolate, the men all hungry and wanting. Through human eyes, her insatiable drive feels strangely vindicated. The cycle mutates when a routine pick-up unexpectedly kindles an empathetic response, infecting her with humanness. Filmed on location in Scotland, where not all the male victims were knowing participants, the filmmaking recalls the realism of Ken Loach as much as the surrealism of David Lynch.
FROM FRIDAY 21 maRch
The Wolf of Wall Street 18 (tbc)
SUNDAY 23 FEBRUARY 2.30PM 3hrs. US 2013. Directed by Martin Scorsese. With Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Margot Robbie.

From the American dream to corporate greed, Belfort goes from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption in the late 80s. Tickets £9.50/£7
Yves Saint Laurent tbc
1hr 41. France 2014. Directed by Jalil Lespert. With Pierre Niney, Guillaume Gallienne, Charlotte Le Bon. In French with English subtitles. Paris, 1957. 21 year old Yves is catapulted to international stardom as the successor to Christian Dior. At his first catwalk show he meets Pierre Bergé, who will become his lover and business partner, and begins a relationship that will change his life forever. A few years later, after the public humiliation of being fired, he refuses to succumb to his critics and creates the Yves Saint Laurent fashion house, shocking the world of couture with the first-ever ‘ready to wear’ collection. Yves Saint Laurent follows the designer as he attempts to democratise fashion against the backdrop of Sixties’ liberation, battling his personal demons to build a fashion empire.
American Hustle 15
SUNDAY 23 MARCH 2PM 2hrs 18. US 2013. Directed by David O. Russell. With Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence. Brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld and his seductive British partner Sydney Prosser are forced to work for wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso, who pushes them into a world of New Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, American Hustle defies genre, hinging on raw emotion, and life and death stakes. Tickets £9.50/£7 conc. 12
Nymphomaniac Volumes I & II + Satellite Q&A 18
ONE NIGHT sTAND - sATURDAY 22 FEBRUARY 6.15PM 4hrs plus Q&A. Denmark/Germany/France/Belgium/UK 2013. Directed by Lars von Trier. With Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgård, Shia LaBeouf.

On a cold winter’s evening the mature, charming bachelor Seligman (Skarsgård), finds Joe beaten up in an alley. He takes her home to his flat where he cares for her wounds while listening intently as Joe recounts the lushly branched-out and multifaceted story of her life. Transmitted via satellite live from the Curzon Chelsea cinema. Tickets £11.50/£9 conc.
When Harry Met Sally 15
FRIDAY 14 FEBRUARY 7.45PM 1hr 32. US 1989. Directed by Rob Reiner. With Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. A modern classic for Valentine’s Day, When Harry Met Sally tells the story of the title pair who share a road trip as university graduates and decide that it is impossible for men and women to be ‘just friends.’ Meeting up again years later the two develop a close friendship and admit their younger selves may have got it wrong. It isn’t until a New Year’s Eve party that the pair finally confront the complex emotions they feel for each other. At the time of its release the film drew comparisons to Annie Hall for its complex and witty take on modern relationships and propelled its female lead, Meg Ryan, to super-stardom.
