Exhibition on Screen- Renoir: Revered and Reviled

From the Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia. In cinemas 16 April 2016.

He is one of the most fiercely debated artists and yet one of the most influential. Picasso collected more Renoirs than any other artist. Matisse revered him. Monet too. He was an artist that was instrumental in creating the Impressionist movement and then totally rejected it and went in a completely new direction – with extraordinary results. The Barnes Collection in Philadelphia has more Renoirs than any other gallery in the world and it’s there that the search begins to tell the remarkable story of this remarkable artist.



National Theatre Live: Les Liaisons Dangereuses

From 9 April 2016

★★★★★
‘Theatre at its most seductive. Dominic West proves superb, Janet McTeer makes a triumphant return to the West End.’ – Evening Standard

★★★★
‘Heady and intoxicating. A brilliantly revived adaptation‘ – Daily Telegraph

★★★★
‘An evening to richly savour’ – The Guardian

Following the hugely successful broadcasts of Coriolanus and King Lear, National Theatre Live brings the Donmar Warehouse’s highly anticipated new production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses to cinemas – broadcast live from the Donmar’s London home.

Directed by Josie Rourke (Coriolanus), the cast includes Elaine Cassidy (The Paradise), Janet McTeer (The White Queen) and Dominic West (The Wire).

In 1782, Choderlos de Laclos’ novel of sex, intrigue and betrayal in pre-revolutionary France scandalised the world. Two hundred years later, Christopher Hampton’s irresistible adaptation swept the board, winning the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Play. Josie Rourke’s revival now marks the play’s thirty year anniversary.

Former lovers, the Marquise de Merteuil and Vicomte de Valmont now compete in games of seduction and revenge. Merteuil incites Valmont to corrupt the innocent Cecile de Volanges before her wedding night but Valmont has targeted the peerlessly virtuous and beautiful Madame de Tourvel. While these merciless aristocrats toy with others’ hearts and reputations, their own may prove more fragile than they supposed.

List of participating cinemas


In Buenos Aires in the 1940s, she was the most beautiful girl in the neighbourhood. He could not dance at all. But they had a dream. Together they changed the history of tango.

The feature documentary film, directed by German Kral and executive produced by Wim Wenders (Pina, Buena Vista Social Club), tells the story of María Nieves Rego and Juan Carlos Copes, the two most famous dancers in tango’s history.

María Nieves Rego (80) and Juan Carlos Copes (83) met as teenagers, and danced together for nearly fifty years. Now, Juan and María are willing to open up about their love, their hatred, and their passion. Our Last Tango bridges the gap between generations, as Juan and Maria tell their story to a group of young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, who transform the most beautiful, moving and dramatic moments of Juan and Maria’s lives into incredible tango-choreographies.

These beautifully shot choreographies compliment the soul-searching interviews and documentary moments of the film to make this an unforgettable journey into the heart of the tango.

“Engrossing… balances between a studious fascination with the dance form’s history and an embrace of the passions it stokes.” Hollywood Reporter

Official selection 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. Nominated for Best Documentary at the Stockholm and Yamagata International Film Festivals.

Running time: 85 mins.
