Estranged daughter Ronit (Weisz) returns home to north London and an Orthodox Jewish community, following the death of her elderly father, Rabbi Krushka. As soon as she steps foot inside the house of Dovid Kuperman (Nivola), her father's chosen disciple, it's clear her defiant nature doesn't go unjudged. But an attraction to a childhood friend, Esti (McAdams) – Dovid's wife – ignites a secret love affair that transgresses all boundaries and exposes the tight grasp faith holds on sexuality. Through charged silences and stolen glances, Ronit and Esti delve deeper into forbidden territory in search of their lesbian identity. A powerful love story based on Naomi Alderman’s novel.

They Shall Not Grow Old with Peter Jackson | Picturehouse Podcast

November 9, 2018

Sam talks to director Peter Jackson about his new film, They Shall Not Grow Old. In cinemas for limited screenings now. Full info: https://theyshallnotgrowold.film 

On the centenary of the end of the First World War, Peter Jackson (The Lord Of The Rings trilogy) presents an extraordinary new work, revealing the Great War as you’ve never seen it. Using cutting-edge technology to transform images and audio captured a hundred years ago, Jackson’s passion project brings to life the people who can best tell the story: those who were there. 

Using only the voices of the men involved, the film explores the reality of war on the front line; their attitudes to the conflict; how they ate, slept and formed friendships, and what their lives were like away from the trenches. Reaching through the fog of time, Jackson aims to give these men voices, investigate the hopes and fears of the veterans who survived to tell their stories, and detail the humility and humanity of those who represented a generation changed forever by a global war.

The Wife with Glenn Close and Björn Runge | Picturehouse Podcast

September 27, 2018

Sam talks to Glenn Close and director Björn Runge about her new film The Wife. 

Joan Castleman (Glenn Close) has spent forty years sacrificing her own talent, dreams and ambitions to support her charismatic husband Joe (Jonathan Pryce) and his stellar literary career. Ignoring infidelities and excuses made in the cause of his art, she has put up with his behaviour with undiminished grace and humour. The foundations of their marriage have, however, been built upon a set of uneven compromises and Joan has reached a turning point.

On the eve of Joe’s Nobel Prize for Literature, the crown jewel rewarding a spectacular body of work, Joan will confront the biggest sacrifice of her life and some long-buried secrets. Based on the bestselling book by Meg Wolitzer, The Wife is a poignant, funny and emotional journey, a celebration of womanhood, self-discovery and liberation, featuring a stunning cast that also includes Max Irons, Harry Lloyd, Annie Starke, Elizabeth McGovern and Christian Slater.


Climax with Gaspar Noé | Picturehouse Podcast

September 21, 2018

Film critic Elena Lazic interviews director Gaspar Noé about his new film, Climax. In cinemas now. 

Dizzying, electric and wildly disturbing, provocateur Gaspar Noé’s dance-horror hybrid takes us on a trip like no other when a party takes a hellish turn. Gathered in a remote lodge for a three-day tour rehearsal, twenty urban dancers embark on a horror ride after somebody spikes the sangria bowl with LSD. A pleasure-fuelled evening descends into chaos as one by one the dancers begin to lose control. Things slip out of focus, neuroses and psychoses take hold, and primitive selves are let off the leash – all set to the electronic beats of Daft Punk, Erik Satie and Aphex Twin.
