Celebrate Valentine's Day with a double bill of Brief Encounter (1945) and Tommy (1975) at Ealing Music & Film Festival 2020

The acclaimed Ealing Music & Film Festival (EMFF) is set for its return from 12th - 16th February with an enriching and eclectic programme including classical concerts, opera, classic films, new short films, a play and workshops for budding musicians, future video stars and much more. There is something for everyone.

Celebrate Valentine's Day with one of the greatest romantic films, the 1945 gem Brief Encounter, David Lean's heart-breaking tale of forbidden love, adapted for the screen by Noel Coward. Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard star as an English housewife and a married doctor who fall in love after meeting on a train platform. Robert Krasker's atmospheric black and white cinematography and Rachmaninov's captivating 2nd Piano Concerto remain powerfully affecting.

Following the success of last year's Quadrophenia screening, lovers of 'local band' The Who, are again in for a treat with a screening of Ken Russell's Tommy (1975). Pete Townshend's songs tell the tale of a boy brainwashed by his mother into thinking he is deaf, blind and mute. He discovers he can feel vibrations well enough to become a pinball wizard. Tommy represents the universal struggle of the young, disaffected and lost, a generation fighting for its own identity. There will also be the chance to experience the work of local directors with a careening and discussion of their short films on the last day of the festival.




Lauded as the best horror film of the decade, Under the Shadow gets a limited edition blu-ray release from Second Sight on 10 February 2020

Lauded by Mark Kermode as a 'brilliantly intelligent thriller' and one of his top 10 films of the decade, Iranian director Babak Anvari's Sundance 2016 hit Under the Shadow is loved by audiences and critics alike, and was the UK's Foreign Language submission to the Academy Awards. Part ghost story, part social thriller with cutting political commentary, the film is already considered a genre classic and is set for its UK Blu-ray debut on 10 February, in a feature packed Limited Edition box set, courtesy of Second Sight.

1988 Tehran, Shideh (Narges Rashidi) is rejected by her medical school as a consequence of her politically active history. Her husband is sent off to serve in the Iran-Iraq War. Iraqi air raids are drawing perilously close to their own apartment. As neighbours and friends flee from a city in chaos, Shideh and her daughter Dorsa (Avin Manshadi) are left on their own. But Dorsa starts to become increasingly ill and disturbed. Tantrums sparked by a missing doll are initially dismissed, but as they worsen Shideh becomes terrified that they've been targeted by a djinn - a malevolent spirit that steals from those it seeks to possess.

Drawing comparisons to Jennifer Kent's breakout hit The Babadook for its nuanced exploration of motherhood through horror, Under the Shadow also unflinchingly examines the female experience of war and of everyday suppression and the demons it creates.

Take a look Under the Shadow...if you dare.

'Thoughtful, provocative and increasingly scary fare...succeeds equally as feminist fable, fractured family drama and full-on fright-fest'

★★★★★

Best Film of 2016

Mark Kermode, The Observer

'Very much its own beast...can hold its own against any horror classic...Intelligent and terrifying, poignant and pointed...Unmissable. See it'

BBC Drama The Trial of Christine Keeler tells the story behind the headlines of the Profumo Affair, and comes to DVD and digital 27 February 2020

A Politician. A young woman. A Russian spy. The British government rocked by scandal. It could be just another day of news. But this is another story, one of the most iconic of the 20th Century and another time...the 1960s. An affair brought the British government to its knees and created a political, sexual and cultural revolution...

The story of the Profumo Affair has been told many times before...on the big screen, in books galore, on stage and even in song and now a brand new BBC drama takes a look at the real people behind the headlines. The Trial of Christine Keeler flips the focus to the women involved and brings the story bang up to date for the #MeToo era.

This enthralling, powerful six-part drama is set to air on BBC One this Christmas and arrives on DVD and digital from Acorn Media International on 27 January 2019.

Starring Sophie Cookson (Kingsman), Ellie Bamber (Les Miserables), James Norton (Grantchester), Ben Miles (The Capture) and Emilia Fox (Delicious).

'Batshit crazy' Sky Original Britannia Series II and the Series I & II Box Set come to DVD and digital 10 February 2020 from Acorn Media

Ruthless Romans, drugged-up Druids and capricious Celts...welcome to Britannia. Olivier award-winning playwright Jez Butterworth (The Ferryman) pens this rich historical series that blends fact and fantasy to create a fever-dream drama. Recently returning for its second series on Sky Atlantic, Britannia Series II comes to DVD and digital from Acorn Media International on 10 February 2020 alongside a Series I & II Box Set.

43AD, Roman General Aulus Plautius (David Morrissey - The Missing) arrives in Britannia, determined to conquer it where Julius Caesar lost to the Druids 90 years earlier. He leverages rivalries between Celtic tribes led by Queen Antedia (Zoe Wanamaker - Harry Potter), and the aging King Pellenor (Ian McDiarmid - Star Wars).

High Druid Veran (Mackenzie Crook - Detectorists) summons spirits with gruesome rituals to achieve his own ends, while chosen child Cait (Eleanor Worthington-Cox - Gwen) seeks to fulfil a prophecy to oust the Romans with the help of demon-possessed madman Divis (Nikolaj Lie Kaas - The Killing).

Who will rule Britannia?

'So radical it must be revered...a grinning Mardi Gras of gnarled mysticism, gamey dialogue and ultra-gore, with a bubbly sitcom undercurrent'
