Captions display dialogue on-screen and also describe the audio or sound portion of a film, allowing viewers who are deaf or hard of hearing to follow the script and the action of a film at the same time. When on-screen captions are available with a film, we will always schedule a number of captioned screenings throughout our monthly programme.
Here are the captioned films in January/February 2018:
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
In Bruges director Martin McDonagh returns with this dark, profane, beautiful and funny small-town tale of a grieving mother (the outstanding Frances McDormand) who, after months with no arrests regarding the murder of her daughter, goes after the local police chief (Woody Harrelson) by booking three billboards out the outskirts of town.
Gary Oldman turns in another stellar performance to add to his glittering CV in Darkest Hour, directed by Joe Wright (Atonement). Oldman plays newly elected British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, who is immediately faced with an international crisis - whether or not to negotiate with a rampant Nazi Germany or, instead, stand his ground.
Steven Spielberg works with two Hollywood icons - Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep - together for the first time on this thriller, based on the true story of the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), as they race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents...
From director Saul Dibb (Bullet Boy) comes this piercing new adaptation of R.C. Sheriff's 1928 anti-war play. In the trenches of World War I, new recruit Lieutenant Raleigh (Asa Butterfield) has pulled strings to join his childhood hero Captain Stanhope (Sam Claflin) on the front line. However, in the dugout they are anticipating a massive German advance, and Stanhope is horrified by Raleigh’s arrival. Altered almost beyond recognition by his years at the front, Stanhope is sustained only by one thought: that when the war is over he can return to his beloved, Raleigh’s sister Margaret.
