Meet Nancy: 34, single (still), hung-over (again), and exhausted by the endless futile set ups foisted upon her by well-meaning but clueless friends. As she travels across London to toast another 10 years of her parent’s blissfully happy marriage, 40 year old, freshly-hatched divorcee Jack mistakes her for his 24 year old blind date. In a moment of uncharacteristic optimism (or insanity?), Nancy decides to just go with it… What follows is a chaotic, unconventional, hilarious night neither of them will ever forget. There will be drinking, there will be home truths; there will be an old classmate with a long-standing crush and stalker tendencies. There will be lost divorce papers, lost hopes, competitive indoor sports and an epic venue-to-venue urban triathlon. Oh, and the small matter of Jack finding out that Nancy isn’t actually his real blind date.

THE BOXTROLLS (2014)
Starring Ben Kingsley, Elle Fanning, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Toni Collette.

A comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh town obsessed with wealth, class and the finest of cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal the two things the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses... at least that’s the legend residents have always believed.

In truth, the Boxtrolls are a community of quirky and lovable creatures who wear recycled cardboard boxes the way turtles wear their shells. This timid and kind-hearted band of tinkerers makes nightly forays above ground to search for choice bits of junk that they use to build wondrously ingenious contraptions in the underground caverns where they live.

REVIEWS The Boxtrolls - Straight to the he(art) of animation

As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realise the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.

Alice becomes the thread that binds three tales of murder, blackmail and revenge when Jack hires Charlie, a mercurial assassin. But there is more than one person gunning for Alice. An unexpected threat comes from the hands of Nathan, an unassuming dentist attempting to pay off his gambling debts through a risky life insurance scam, whilst a small town Lady Macbeth masterminds the scheme. A corrupt cop also tries to get his cut while Alice's love interest hopes to rescue the young woman from the assassin's telescopic sights.
