The Shack” (2017)

After a loving father (Sam Worthington) endures a family tragedy that rocks him to his core, he receives a mysterious invitation to “The Shack,” a decrepit shelter where an unimaginable horror once took place. But, much to his surprise, his visit prompts a divine intervention from a series of strangers (Octavia Spencer, Graham Greene, Avraham Aviv Alush, and Sumire Matsubara), and the group soon lead him on a theological inquiry in the hope of getting him unstuck from his grief by reminding him of the all-encompassing love of God. Based on the best-selling allegorical novel by William Paul Young.

A Matter of Life and Death” (1946)

Briefed by the Ministry of Information to make a film that would foster Anglo-American relations in the post-war period, innovative filmmakers Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, came up with “A Matter Of Life And Death”, an extravagant and extraordinary fantasy in which David Niven stars as a downed pilot who must justify his continuing existence to a heavenly panel of judges, because he made the mistake of falling in love with an American girl (Kim Hunter) when he really should have been dead. National stereotypes are lampooned as the angelic judges squabble over his fate. In a neat reversal of expectations, the Heaven sequences are black and white, while Earth is in techni-colour. Roger Livesey and Raymond Massey lead the fine supporting cast, in what is one of the undoubted jewels of British cinema.

Three and Out” (2008)

Paul Callow (Mackenzie Crook) is fed up with city life and driving trains and when two people fall under his train in as many weeks, he really has had enough! Then he hears the ‘three and out’ rule: three fatal accidents in a month qualifies you for early retirement with 10 years salary… lump sum! Paul suddenly sees a way of clearing his debts and escaping to a better life all he has to do is find a willing victim. Down and out Tommy Cassidy (Colm Meaney) is willing to help Paul by being his third fatality, but not before he ties up a few loose ends with his ex-wife (Imelda Staunton) and daughter (Gemma Arterton). Over the course of the weekend, relationships between all four are changed forever but when Monday morning arrives, Paul and Tommy are confronted with the harsh reality of the deal they struck. Surely they won’t go through with it. Or will they?

‘Big Eyes’ (2015)

Tim Burton directs this biographical drama starring Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams. The film follows the story of American artist Margaret Keane (Adams), who, in the 1960s, allowed her husband Walter (Waltz) to claim credit for her artwork, believing that a female artist could not find success through painting. The Keanes acquired huge amounts of wealth through Margaret’s work and the paintings were in high demand throughout their time living together as husband and wife. However, when they later separated, Margaret announced to the world that she was in fact the true author of the paintings, sparking a long-drawn-out legal battle between her and her estranged husband… Adams won a Golden Globe Award for her performance.

‘Me before You’ (2016)

Young and quirky Louisa “Lou” Clark (Emilia Clarke) moves from one job to the next to help her family make ends meet. However, her cheerful attitude is put to the test when she becomes a caregiver for Will Traynor (Sam Claflin), a wealthy young banker left paralyzed from an accident two years earlier. Will’s cynical outlook starts to change when Louisa shows him that life is worth living. As their bond deepens, their lives and hearts change in ways neither one could have imagined. Based on the best-selling book by Jojo Moyes, the film also stars Janet McTeer and Charles Dance and retains much of the quirky emotion of the book. Touching, funny and with excellent performances and a great soundtrack, this is a wonderfully moving film. Maybe bring a couple of hankies just in case….

‘The Bible….in the Beginning’ (1966)

The greatest stories of The Old Testament are brought to the screen with astounding scope and power in this international film which depicts the first 22 chapters of Genesis. It starts with the very beginning of the world and the creation of man before addressing Noah and the Ark, the tower of Babel, and the life of Abraham. This is the spectacular story of man’s creation, his fall, his survival, and his indomitable faith in the future. Matching the epic scale of the production are performances by George C. Scott as Abraham, Ava Gardner as Sarah and Peter O’Toole as the haunting presence of the Angel of God. The legendary John Huston directs and delivers a commanding performance as Noah. From the film’s opening amidst cosmic chaos, to its lingering message of hope and salvation, ‘The Bible’ stands as a monumental motion picture achievement.
