Make it a special trip to Cineworld this Mother's Day and share in the big screen experience together. We've rounded up five essential choices that you can't miss.
The Shape of Water
What's the story? From master story teller Guillermo del Toro comes the Oscar-winning The Shape of Water, an other-worldly fable, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. Rounding out the cast are Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones.
What's the story? In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird's father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.
Finding Your Feet
What's the story? When ‘Lady’ Sandra Abbott (Imelda Staunton) discovers that her husband of 40 years is having an affair with her best friend, she seeks refuge with her estranged, bohemian, older sister Bif (Celia Imrie). Sandra couldn’t be more different from her outspoken, serial dating, free spirited sibling. But it turns out different is just what Sandra needs and she reluctantly lets Bif drag her along to her community dance class, where gradually she starts finding her feet... and romance. Featuring a star studded cast including Timothy Spall, Joanna Lumley and David Hayman, Finding Your Feet is a hilarious and heartwarming modern comedy proving that it’s never too late to start again.
What's the story? Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, Tonya is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater Tonya Harding and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. The movie features an Oscar-nominated turn from Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding, plus a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly and a tour-de-force, Oscar-winning performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden. With original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespie's I, Tonya is an absurdist, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding's life and career in all of its unchecked – and checkered – glory.
The Greatest Showman sing-a-long
What's the story? The Greatest Showman is a bold and original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and the sense of wonder we feel when dreams come to life. Inspired by the ambition and imagination of P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman tells the story of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a mesmerizing spectacle that became a worldwide sensation. The film is directed by exciting new director Michael Gracey, with songs by Academy Award winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land). It stars Academy Award nominee Hugh Jackman, plus fellow nominee Michelle Williams, Zendaya, Zac Efron and Rebecca Ferguson.
