DIRECTOR
YESTERDAY (2019)
Starring Himesh Patel, Lily James, Ed Sheeran, Kate McKinnon, Ana De Armas, Camille Chen, Maryana Spivak, Lamorne Morris, Ellise Chappell and Alex Arnold. Directed by Danny Boyle.

Jack Malik is a struggling singer-songwriter in a tiny English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie. Then, after a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed … and he finds himself with a very complicated problem, indeed.

Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, and with a little help from his steel-hearted American agent, Debra, Jack’s fame explodes. But as his star rises, he risks losing Ellie — the one person who always believed in him. With the door between his old life and his new closing, Jack will need to get back to where he once belonged and prove that all you need is love.

REVIEWS Yesterday - Great concept, disappointing execution

T2: TRAINSPOTTING (2017)
Starring Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle. Directed by Danny Boyle.

First there was an opportunity... then there was a betrayal. Twenty years have gone by. Much has changed but just as much remains the same. Mark Renton returns to the only place he can ever call home.

They are waiting for him: Spud, Sick Boy, and Begbie. Other old friends are waiting too: sorrow, loss, joy, vengeance, hatred, friendship, love, longing, fear, regret, diamorphine, self-destruction and mortal danger, they are all lined up to welcome him, ready to join the dance.

REVIEWS T2 Trainspotting - Take another hit

STEVE JOBS (2016)
Starring Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Michael Stuhlbarg, Katherine Waterston, Perla Haney-Jardine, Ripley Sobo, Makenzie Moss and Sarah Snook. Directed by Danny Boyle.

Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, 'Steve Jobs' takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.

REVIEWS Steve Jobs - A film as fiercely inventive as its subject

TRANCE (2013)
Starring James McAvoy - Simon, Rosario Dawson - Elizabeth Lamb and Vincent Cassel - Franck. Directed by Danny Boyle.

Simon, a fine art auctioneer, teams up with a criminal gang to steal a work of art worth millions of dollars, but after suffering a blow to the head during the heist he wakes to discover that he has no memory of where he has hidden the painting. When physical threats and torture fail to produce answers, the gang’s leader Franck hires hypnotherapist Elizabeth Lamb to delve into the darkest recesses of Simon’s psyche. As she digs deeper into his broken subconscious, the stakes become much higher and the boundaries between desire, reality and hypnotic suggestion begin to blur and disappear.

REVIEWS Trance - Are you watching closely?

BATTLE OF THE SEXES (2017)
Starring Emma Stone, Steve Carell, Andrea Riseborough, Alan Cumming, Sarah Silverman, Eric Christian Olsen, Elisabeth Shue, Austin Stowell, Jessica McNamee and Natalie Morales. Directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris.

The electrifying 1973 tennis match between World number one Billie Jean King and ex-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs was billed as the Battle of the Sexes, and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time. The match caught the zeitgeist and sparked a global conversation on gender equality, spurring on the feminist movement. Trapped in the media glare, King and Riggs were on opposite sides of a binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles.

REVIEWS Battle of the Sexes - A vivid portrait of an inspiring legend
