Tickets to attend the opening night gala of the London Film Festival on 5th October Roald Dahl's Matilda the Musical

OPENING NIGHT GALA & WORLD PREMIERE: Roald Dahl's Matilda the Musical

Wednesday 5 October 2022 18:45 at Southbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall

Emma Thompson leads a dazzling ensemble in this rousing big screen adaptation of the smash-hit, Olivier-winning stage musical.

Let them eat cake! Chocolate cake! Dahl’s story of a neglected, prodigiously brilliant little girl is given a joyous treatment in Matthew Warchus, Dennis Kelly and Tim Minchin’s musical. Matilda Wormwood (impressive newcomer Alisha Weir) was never wanted by her parents (played here with comedic slimeball hatefulness by Stephen Graham and Andrea Riseborough). She’s abandoned, with only library books for company – books far more sophisticated than most adults can absorb. When the authorities notice Matilda has never attended school, her parents hastily sign her up for Crunchem Hall, run by the fearsome Miss Trunchbull (Thompson).

Director: Matthew Warchus
Stars: Emma Thompson, Stephen Graham, Andrea Riseborough

attend the world film premiere of white noise with Adam Driver

UK PREMIERE: White Noise

Thursday 06 October 2022 18:00 at Southbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall

Noah Baumbach’s adaptation of Don DeLillo’s ‘unfilmable’ cult novel is a wonderfully idiosyncratic dark comedy starring Adam Driver and Greta Gerwig.

How best to describe the indescribable White Noise? It’s a film about nothing and everything – about life, death and the nuclear family; it grapples with nuclear reactions, mysterious medicines and the sacred space of the supermarket. Driver’s Jack Gladney, a four-times married college professor, leads an ordinary life – or as ordinary as one’s life can be when you’re a pioneer in the field of Hitler studies but have only just started learning German. Joined by an all-star cast playing family, friends and co-workers, including Gerwig, Don Cheadle, Jodie Turner-Smith and Lars Eidinger, Driver’s anti-hero finds himself on a journey to conquer his crippling fear of death, with some very unexpected results. Fans of Baumbach will delight in yet another sharp and comic look at human relationships. But White Noise sees the writer-director playing with genre and form in new ways, creating a film that’s both a love letter to DeLillo’s book and Baumbach’s most ambitious and surreal project to date.

Director: Noah Baumbach
Stars: Adam Driver, Greta Gerwig, Don Cheadle, Raffey Cassidy, Sam Nivola, May Nivola

attend the world film premiere of the wonder at the london film festival

EUROPEAN PREMIERE: The Wonder

Friday 07 October 2022 18:00 at Southbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall

Ever-unpredictable, Chilean director Sebastián Lelio ventures to 19th-century Ireland for this domestic psychodrama, which sees religious faith battle against scientific reason.

In a small Irish village in 1862, 11-year-old Anna is alleged to have not eaten in four months, yet miraculously remains alive and well. English nurse Lib Wright is sent there with the task of observing Anna to deduce if her claim of ‘surviving on manna from heaven’ is a legitimate miracle or a blasphemous fabrication. Sharing watch duties with a nun from the neighbouring town, who is open to the possibility of the Divine at work, defiant pragmatist Lib is unwavering in her scepticism, placing her faith in the rational order of science. Subtly weaving hints of gothic horror into this claustrophobic tale of religious fervour and potentially deadly delusion, Emma Donoghue, in collaboration with Alice Birch and Lelio, adapts her own novel for the screen with exhilarating results. Demonstrating Lelio’s remarkable ability to offset traditional storytelling with bold formal experimentation, The Wonder is an ambitious and provocative endeavour, grounded by a captivating central performance from Florence Pugh.

Director: Sebastián Lelio
Stars: Florence Pugh, Tom Burke, Kila Lord Cassidy

EUROPEAN PREMIERE: BARDO, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths

Saturday 08 October 2022 17:00 at Southbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall

Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s follow-up to The Revenant sees him return to Mexico with this ambitious and visually inventive reflection on the ethics and possibilities of filmmaking.

Meet Silverio, a filmmaker and journalist who has always sought to make socially relevant work that challenges, questions and exposes. When he receives the prestigious Alethea award from the American Society of Journalists, he returns home to Mexico to celebrate. However, ‘home’ isn’t easy to define when you’ve been living in the USA for 20 years and you can’t fathom what Mexico now means for you or your immediate family. In mapping Silverio’s existential voyage, Iñárritu takes the viewer on a journey into the unknown – a Felliniesque ride where the boundaries of history, myth and memory blur to powerful and disarming effect. With a narrative playfulness that evokes his Oscar- winning Birdman, all dazzlingly shot by Darius Khondji (Amour, Seven, Uncut Gems) and centred by an extraordinary performance from Daniel Giménez Cacho (Zama, Y tu mamá también, Bad Education), BARDO confirms Iñarritu’s stature as a formally audacious filmmaker who is unafraid to tackle the fault lines of a global, unequal and hyperlinked society.

Director: Alejandro G. Iñárritu
Stars: Daniel Giménez Cacho, Griselda Siciliani, Ximena Lamadrid, Iker Sanchez Solano

tickets to film premiere the living with bill nighy

WORLD PREMIERE: Living

Sunday 09 October 2022 17:00 at Southbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall

Based on Ikiru by Akira Kurosawa, Living stars Bill Nighy as a man determined in the time he has left to wake from his slumber and make a mark on the world.

Having lived in a stupor since his wife’s death, Williams (Nighy) lives out his life through the observance of daily rituals. But then the civil servant receives some shocking news. A modest man, Williams embarks on an odyssey of discovery, encountering seaside bohemian Sutherland (Tom Burke) and opening up to co-worker Margaret (Sex Education’s Aimee Lou Wood). Director Oliver Hermanus (Moffie), screenwriter Kazuo Ishiguro (author of Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go), producer Stephen Woolley (Carol), the consummate trio behind Living, have created a film of tremendous balance and grace, which hums with their love of cinema. Sandy Powell’s costumes are crisp monotones with eager accents of colour, while cinematographer Jamie Ramsay’s chilly silvery frames perfectly capture Whitehall in the 1950s. And Nighy, in one of the finest performances of a distinguished career, imbues every scene with a quiet and wistful sense of wonder.

Director: Oliver Hermanus
Stars: Bill Nighy, Aimee Lou Wood, Alex Sharp, Tom Burke

tickets to walkk the red carpet and attend the film premiere of the son with hugh jackman

WORLD PREMIERE: The Son

Monday 10 October 2022 18:00 at Southbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall

Florian Zeller directs this blistering adaptation of his acclaimed play, in which a divorced couple struggle to deal with their teenage son’s mental-health crisis.

This morally knotty, thematically complex and thoroughly engrossing film finds Zeller working at the height of his powers as a screenwriter and director, following his Oscar-winning collaboration with Christopher Hampton on The Father (2020). Working with Hampton again, Zeller’s new film focuses on Peter (Hugh Jackman), a hyper-successful lawyer embarking on a new life with his young wife (Vanessa Kirby) and baby, his bitter and heartbroken ex-wife Kate (Laura Dern) and their troubled young son Nicholas (Zen McGrath). When Nicholas begins behaving oddly, skipping school and disappearing for long stretches of time, neither Peter nor Kate know quite what to do. As the characters struggle to deal with the boy’s worrying behaviour, the true nature of their relationships is laid excruciatingly bare, and the film evolves into a gripping psychological drama. Featuring a career-best performance from Jackman and a brief, unforgettable cameo from Anthony Hopkins as one of the most thoroughly monstrous characters he has ever played, The Son is a powerful and devastating drama by one of the most exciting filmmakers working today.

Director: Florian Zeller
Stars: Hugh Jackman, Laura Dern, Vanessa Kirby, Zen McGrath, Anthony Hopkins

watchj the whale movie premiere at sothbank festival hall as part of the london film festvail

EUROPEAN PREMIERE: The Whale

Tuesday 11 October 2022 18:00 at Southbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall

Brendan Fraser shines in Darren Aronofsky’s resplendent film about a man trying to reconnect with his teenage daughter before it’s too late.

A bereft Charlie (Fraser) has become a recluse. With his best friend (Hong Chau) his only contact with the outside world, Charlie is eating himself into an early grave. His health failing, he reaches out to the daughter (Stranger Things’ Sadie Sink) he abandoned when he fell in love with a man and left his wife. The Whale is adapted by Samuel D. Hunter from his own stage play, and Aronofsky directs with consummate economy. Unfolding in a single room, the film has a rich sense of place – the dusty American mid-west, with its church-dictated hetero-norms of family love and a booming medical sector as a primary employer. But its themes are universal: our fundamental need for human connection, a sense that time is unforgiving, and the (occasionally awful) power and responsibility of parenting and being someone’s whole world. With exquisite writing and pitch-perfect performances – Fraser and Sink are particular knockouts – The Whale is destined to be one of the talking-point films of the year.

Director: Darren Aronofsky
Stars: Brendan Fraser, Hong Chau, Sadie Sink, Ty Simpkins, Samantha Morton

WORLD PREMIERE: Empire of Light

Wednesday 12 October 2022 18:00 at Southbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall

Following his BAFTA Best Film winner 1917, Sam Mendes returns with this majestic, personal work, set in a 1980s English coastal town.

Hilary (Olivia Colman) manages a seafront picture palace. Once an opulent multiscreen cinema with a dance hall overlooking the sea, now only one screen remains open, albeit a grand one. In preparation for a regional premiere of Chariots of Fire, Hilary and her colleagues – played by a heavyweight ensemble that includes Toby Jones, Colin Firth, Tom Brooke and Micheal Ward – spruce up the venue. Outside, the town itself is crumbling, with a rising far-right presence and Stephen (Ward) regularly harassed by skinheads. Returning to LFF for the first time since his Oscar- winning debut American Beauty, Mendes delivers a stirring ode to the cinema – as a space for collective experience, offering the pleasures and balms of watching films in darkness together. Alongside regular producer Pippa Harris, Mendes collaborates with an outstanding and mostly British creative team, including legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins, designer Mark Tildesley, editor Lee Smith and casting director Nina Gold. Together, they craft a vivid, tactile sense of 1980s Britain. With Colman and Ward magnificent at the heart of the film, Empire of Light is an elegant exploration of the potential of both community and cinema to help us find light in the darkness. We are delighted to host the European premiere as our American Express Gala.

Director: Sam Mendes
Stars: Olivia Colman, Micheal Ward, Toby Jones, Colin Firth

walk the red carpet at the premiere of The Banshees of Inisherin with colin farrell

WORLD PREMIERE: The Banshees of Inisherin

Thursday 13 October 2022 18:00 at Southbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall

Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri) returns to the LFF with this jewel of a tragicomedy, a shimmering tale of friendship, feuds and Irish identity.

On a small island off Ireland’s coast, life delivers few surprises. While a civil war of increasingly senseless violence rumbles on the mainland, sleepy days on Inisherin are marked by lifelong pals Padraic (Colin Farrell) and Colm’s (Brendan Gleeson) late-afternoon trips to the pub. Until one day, when it doesn’t happen. McDonagh offers an undulating wave of a story, one that moves from hoot-inducing black comedy and a tender ode to filial love, to a film about a fiery rage that’s lost sight of its original purpose. Farrell and Gleeson dazzle throughout. But the film also centres scintillating performances by Barry Keoghan as an inchoate but harmless pest and Kerry Condon as Padraic’s sister, the Island’s sagest resident who longs for something more. As heartbreaking as it is hilarious, The Banshees of Inisherin is arguably the finest work from this major filmmaker.

Director: Martin McDonagh
Stars: Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Kerry Condon, Barry Keoghan

EUROPEAN PREMIERE: She Said

Friday 14 October 2022 18:00 at Southbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall

Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan star as New York Times journalists Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, whose brilliant investigation pulled back the curtain on Harvey Weinstein’s serial abuse of women.

When Kantor (Kazan) and Twohey (Mulligan) began to dig into whispered allegations of sexual abuse in Hollywood, doors were closed and shutters came down. Even so, many of their leads pointed to Weinstein. He was the key to unlocking a system of power that protected abusers. Adapted by UK screenwriter Rebecca Lenkiewicz from Twohey and Kantor’s book, She Said is a pacey investigative thriller in the vein of Spotlight and All the President’s Men. Maria Schrader (director of the 2021 romcom I’m Your Man) directs with precision, bringing the pithy script and pitch-perfect performances – which include Patricia Clarkson, Samantha Morton and Jennifer Ehle – to the fore. But the heart of the film is Mulligan and Kazan, who play the reporting double act as a brainy tag team and the very image of ethical journalism – sensitive to each other and their subjects. She Said is a crackingly good film about female solidarity and the fundamental importance of the fourth estate.

Director: Maria Schrader
Stars: Carey Mulligan, Zoe Kazan, Patricia Clarkson, Andre Braugher, Jennifer Ehle

EUROPEAN PREMIERE: Decision to Leave

Friday 14 October 2022 21:20 at Southbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall

In this sublime, Hitchcockian noir thriller from Park Chan-wook (The Handmaiden), a detective gets a little too close to the murder he’s trying to solve.

Busan Detective Hae-joon (Park Hae-il) is happily married, although work means spending too much time apart from his wife. When a climber’s body is found, suspicious photos on his phone lead to a murder investigation, and Hae-joon to the man’s young wife, Seo-rae (an entrancing Teng Wei) and a stakeout of her home. But even as her alibi clears her, Hae-joon finds himself unable to end his surveillance. Is this his detective’s instinct, or something more? His questioning of Seo-rae at the police station reveals an evident chemistry between them, but it’s unclear whether she is genuine in her behaviour or cleverly manipulating the detective. Director Park has crafted a mystery plotted with virtuoso aplomb – one breathless, twisting story-turn after another. Every shot is marked by its boldness and visual beauty, while the intricacy of the details on display harmonises with the ingeniously crafted plot. And at its centre are the mesmeric performances of Teng Wei and Park Hae-il. Decision to Leave finds director Park working at the dizzying peak of his powers.

Director: Park Chan-wook
Stars: Tang Wei, Park Hae-il

EUROPEAN PREMIERE: Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio

Saturday 15 October 2022 14:15 at Southbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall

Carlo Collodi’s dark fable about a naive wooden puppet is presented in dazzling stop-motion animation by Oscar-winning director Guillermo del Toro, for this World Premiere.

In 1930s Italy, where fascist dictator Benito Mussolini rules with an iron fist, carpenter Geppetto’s life is dominated by his grief over the loss of Carlo, his 10-year-old son. He finds comfort in carving a wooden puppet, which a blue wood spirit unexpectedly brings to life. Geppetto names it Pinocchio. Despite its many flaws and imperfections, the wooden child is loved unconditionally by its surrogate father. But even with the sage advice of Sebastian J Cricket and the discovery that he possesses the gift of eternal life, Pinocchio’s actions continue to be ill-judged; he is constantly swayed by unscrupulous people, including ‘Il Duce’ himself. Del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water) is a perfect match for Collodi’s tale, never shying away from the story’s darker elements, while delivering on the themes of redemption and the power of parental love. Created with state-of-the-art stop motion animation, this is an enchanting and a magical experience.

Director: Guillermo del Toro
Stars: Ewan McGregor, David Bradley, Gregory Mann, Cate Blanchett, Christoph Waltz

CLOSING NIGHT GALA AND WORLD PREMIERE: Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

Sunday 16 October 2022 18:45 at Southbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall

More an equal than a sequel, Rian Johnson reunites with Daniel Craig (who reunites with that accent) for a new Knives Out, which will delight fans and newcomers alike.

Rian Johnson’s razor-sharp whodunit Knives Out was a genuine slice of movie magic, piercing its way into the hearts of both audiences and critics. Three years later, Johnson is gifting movie lovers with this spiritual sequel (same universe, different story), which plays out like an ultra-contemporary throwback to the past. As with its predecessor, Glass Onion is a delicious mystery within an enigma, wrapped inside a riddle, the pleasures of which are best left unspoiled. So fear not, I will tread carefully here... A disparate sextet of former colleagues and (to varying degree) friends each receive an intricate puzzle box, which holds within it an invitation to attend an elaborate murder mystery party at their founding member’s beachside mansion. Reprising his role as Blanc, Craig is an absolute hoot as the eccentric detective with a very distinctive Southern drawl, perfectly complimented by killer performances from an otherwise entirely new cast, who appear to be having as much fun as audiences will. Blisteringly funny, slyly satirical and wholly unpredictable, the consistently imaginative Johnson has cooked up an expectation-shattering romp of many layers, just as its title would suggest.

Director: Rian Johnson
Stars: Daniel Craig, Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr
