JUDY

TUESDAY 11TH MARCH

This film, a biopic of Judy Garland (played by Renee Zellweger who won an Oscar for the role), covers the final months of her life in 1968, when she was ravaged, rake-thin, bankrupt and adrift in an alcoholic haze. Desperate for money after the implosion of her marriage to Sid Luft, she barely had a roof over her head. So the idea was hatched for a comeback tour, playing a series of dates in the city that had always received her with open arms: London. While there, she reminisces with friends and fans and begins a whirlwind romance with musician Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband.

 

 

OFFICIAL SECRETS

TUESDAY 14TH APRIL

The true story of a British whistleblower who leaked information to the press about an illegal NSA spy operation designed to push the UN Security Council into sanctioning the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Official Secrets tells the true story of British Intelligence whistle-blower Katharine Gun (played by Keira Knightley in one of her most acclaimed roles to date) who, during the immediate run-up to the 2003 Iraq invasion, leaked a top secret NSA memo exposing a joint US-UK illegal spying operation against members of the UN Security Council. The memo proposed blackmailing smaller, undecided member states into voting for war. At great personal and professional risk, journalist Martin Bright published the leaked document in The Observer newspaper in London, and the story made headlines around the world. Members of the Security Council were outraged and any chance of a UN resolution in favour of war collapsed. But within days, Bush declared he no longer needed UN backing and invaded anyway. As Iraq descended into chaos, Katharine was arrested and charged with breaching the Official Secrets Act. Martin faced potential charges too. Their legal battles exposed the highest levels of government in both London and Washington with having manipulated intelligence in order to sell an illegal war.
