2019-8-I got LifeBlandine Lenoir’s lovely, intricate film tackles a subject that rarely gets addressed in the arts, with a comical lilt. The ‘everyday heroine’ of this film defies convention to show the realities of age discrimination, menopause – and happiness – post-50. A life-affirming, upbeat French comedy to round off the season!

Dir: Lee Isaac Chung  1 hr 55mins, 12A

MinariInfused with a wonderful sentimentality, Lee Isaac Chung’s fictionalised account of his rural US childhood explores the growing pains of a family farm. This Oscar-nominated tale of a Korean family putting down roots in 1980s Arkansas,  beautifully balances the feel-good and the gritty, and offers an intimate and heart-wrenching portrait of family and assimilation in 1980s America.
