Going Clear: Scientology and The Prison of Belief

Critically acclaimed documentary looking at Scientology, based on a book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Lawrence Wright. It highlights the Church's origins, to its rising popularity in Hollywood and beyond. Former insiders line up to make claims – all denied by the Church – about what really goes on behind closed doors, including abuse and betrayal. The Church itself tried to ban it, so it must be worth a look.


Gay and lesbian activists team up with miners in South Wales in this feel-good film about the 1984 coal strike. Politically-minded Mark (Ben Schnetzer) forms a group called Lesbian and Gays Support the Miners but meets resistance from the National Union of Mineworkers. Undeterred, he heads to the Welsh Dulais colliery and wins over the group's leader Dai (the ever-reliable Paddy Considine) and poetry-loving ex-miner Cliff (Bill Nighy). Inspired by a true story.

Get On Up

This is the story of James Brown's life, produced by Mick Jagger and directed by Tate Taylor ('The Help'). Chadwick Boseman steps into the platform shoes of the hardest working man in showbusiness, and he's ably supported by Dan Aykroyd, Craig Robinson and Jill Scott. But it's not all a song and dance, as it explores his humble upbringing and darker times.
