Dir Sophie Hyde     UK 2022      98 mins     Cert 15

Emma Thompson gives an emotionally generous performance as Nancy Stokes, a retired schoolteacher and widow who is yearning for adventure, and to enjoy some of life’s pleasures that she feels she’s missed out on.  While Nancy’s married life provided her with a home and family, good sex was never on offer.  But now her husband is gone, she has a plan: she will find adventure by hiring a male escort named Leo Grande, played by Daryl McCormack. Over the course of three rendezvous Nancy finds she likes Leo, and he likes her and as Nancy starts to relax, the power dynamics shift and their well-worn masks begin to slip.


TICKETS: £5 (£3 Regal Film Society members/Friends of the Regal/Students/ES40s).



Dir Panah Panahi      Iran 202      93 mins    Cert 12A   Subtitled

Panah Panahi, son and collaborator of recently imprisoned Iranian master Jafar Panahi, makes a striking feature debut with this charming, sharp-witted, and deeply moving comic drama. The award-winning Hit the Road takes the tradition of the Iranian road-trip movie and adds unexpected twists and turns.  The film follows a family of four – two middle-aged parents and their sons, one a taciturn adult, the other an ebullient six-year-old – as they drive through the twisting desert highways and misty green valley of north western Iran. Over the course of the trip they bond over memories of the past, grapple with fears of the unknown and fuss over their sick dog.  Unspoken tensions arise and the film builds emotional momentum as it slowly reveals the purpose for their journey. 


TICKETS: £5 (£3 Regal Film Society members/Friends of the Regal/Students/ES40s).

Edward Hopper’s work is the most recognizable art in America – popular, praised, and mysterious. Countless painters, photographers, filmmakers and musicians have been influenced by his art – but who was he, and how did a struggling illustrator create such a bounty of notable work? This new film takes a deep look into Hopper’s art, his life, and his relationships. From his early career as an illustrator; his wife giving up her own promising art career to be his manager; his critical and commercial acclaim; in his own words, this film explores the enigmatic personality behind the brush… Combined with expert interviews, diaries and a startling visual reflection of American life, Hopper brings to life America’s arguably most influential artist.

Released to coincide with the major Hopper exhibition, Edward Hopper’s New York  at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York Oct  ‘22 – Mar ’23.

Exhibition on Screen is thrilled to be bringing back one of its most successful ever films, dedicated to the life and work of Paul Cézanne. One cannot appreciate 20th century art without understanding the significance and genius of Paul Cézanne. Filmed at the National Portrait Gallery in London, with additional interviews from experts and curators from MoMA in New York, National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, and Musée d’Orsay in Paris, and correspondence from the artist himself, the film takes audiences to the places Cézanne lived and worked, and sheds light on an artist who is perhaps one of the least known and yet most important of all the Impressionists.

 “... a film that thoroughly repays careful listening and looking”              The Guardian 


Released to coincide with a major Cézanne exhibition at Tate Modern Oct 22 – Mar 23.
