    Picturehouse’s very own Felicity Beckett is joined by director Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!, William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet) to discuss his latest film, Elvis, starring Austin Butler and Tom Hanks. 

    Who was Elvis Presley? Look through the dazzling lens of Oscar-nominated filmmaker Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!, The Great Gatsby) and discover the man behind the music – and the man behind the man. 

    The film delves into the complex relationship between Elvis (Austin Butler, in a star-making performance) and his enigmatic, Svengali-like manager Colonel Tom Parker (Tom Hanks) over the course of 20 years, charting Presley’s meteoric rise to fame, the loves and losses he endures along the way, and the American music culture he helped transform.

    Good Luck To You, Leo Grande with Sophie Hyde | Picturehouse

    Hosted by Picturehouse’s very own Sam Clements, The Love Of Cinema podcast is proudly supported by Kia.


    Sam is joined by director Sophie Hyde (Animals) to discuss her latest film, Good Luck To You, Leo Grande. 

    Nancy Stokes (Emma Thompson), a retired schoolteacher and widow, is yearning for some adventure, some human connection, and some sex. Good sex. Whilst her husband Robert provided a home, a family, and something resembling a life, good sex was never on offer. But he’s gone now, and Nancy has a plan: she will find adventure with a sex worker named Leo Grande (Daryl McCormack). In an anonymous hotel room Nancy greets Leo. He looks every bit as good as his picture, but what Nancy wasn’t expecting was conversation as well as fornication. Leo has a view on everything, and though he may not always tell the truth, Nancy finds she likes him. And he likes her. With growing sexual confidence, Nancy starts to relax. Over the course of three rendezvous, the power dynamics shift and their well-worn masks begin to slip.

But there’s trouble ahead: when he finds himself marooned on a hostile planet, he must try to find a way back home with the help of some ambitious – and haphazard – new Star Command recruits, while also confronting a villainous threat to the universe's safety.

    The Bob’s Burgers Movie Interview Special | Picturehouse

    Hosted by Picturehouse’s very own Sam Clements, we delve into the making of The Bob’s Burgers Movie. 

    Sam talks to the show’s creator and co-director of the movie, Loren Bouchard, co-director Bernard Derriman, co-writer Nora Smith and cast members; H. Jon Benjamin, John Roberts, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman and Larry Murphy. 

    The Bob’s Burgers Movie is an animated, big-screen, musical comedy-mystery-adventure based on the long-running Emmy®-winning series.

    The story begins when a ruptured water main creates an enormous sinkhole right in front of Bob's Burgers, blocking the entrance indefinitely and ruining the Belchers’ plans for a successful summer.

    While Bob and Linda struggle to keep the business afloat, the kids try to solve a mystery that could save their family's restaurant.

    As the dangers mount, these underdogs help each other find hope and fight to get back behind the counter, where they belong.

    a-ha: The Movie with Thomas Robsahm and Aslaung Holm | Picturehouse

    a-ha: The Movie with Thomas Robsahm and Aslaung Holm | Picturehouse

    Felicity Beckett talks to the creative team behind a-ha: The Movie. 

    a-ha’s hit Take On Me is still one of the most played songs of the last millennium. This documentary follows the band over a period of four years, sharing the full story of how three young men followed their impossible dream of making it big.

    When Take On Me reached number 1 on Billboard in the US in 1985 that dream came true. Almost 35 years after their breakthrough, a-ha still creates magic on stage with their melancholic and timeless music. They tour the world but drive in separate cars and stay apart backstage.

    They only meet on stage, while doing the one thing they love. The film closely portrays the challenging creative and personal dynamics of a group of three strong individuals. This is a story of great music, big ambitions, broken friendship – and maybe forgiveness.
