Beyond Words 26th Jan 19:00 Town Hall Theatre BUY

Urszula Antoniak | Poland | 85 mins | 2017 | Drama | B&W

Nothing in Michael, a young and successful Berlin lawyer, gives away his Polish roots. However, the sudden appearance of his father, who was long presumed dead, plunges Michael him into an existential crisis. Director Urszula Antoniak (Nothing Personal) uses her own history – Polish, grew up in Holland – to brilliant effect.

Waterboys 26th Jan 21:00 Town Hall Theatre BUY

Robert Jan Westdijk | Netherlands | 103 mins | 2017 | Comedy, Drama, Romance

You can’t choose your father. Neither can you choose your son. Victor is a cynical crime novelist; his son Zach is a cello-player. When they get thrown out by their women on the same day, the two men have to sort out themselves and their relationship during a turbulent trip to Scotland.

The Fury Of A Patient Man 27th Jan 12:00 Town Hall Theatre BUY

Raúl Arévalo | Spain | 92 mins | 2017 | Drama

After 8 years in prison after a failed robbery, Curro has one thing in mind: to find his family and live a normal life. But the arrival of a mysterious stranger will shake up his plans and drag him into a dark and unrewarded journey to revenge.

The Intouchables 27th Jan 14:00 Town Hall Theatre BUY

Olivier Nakache, Eric Toledano | France | 112 mins | 2011 | Comedy, Drama

This film came to Ireland for a brief couple of weeks before quietly disappearing; however, it is quite simply a classic film and a hugely popular one too. Even today. It is a fabulous funny comedy from France that plays brilliantly with stereotypes around race, unemployment and disability.

King Of The Belgians 27th Jan 16:30 Town Hall Theatre BUY

Peter Brosens, Jessica Woodworth | Belgium | 94 mins | 2017 | Comedy, Drama

A classic mockumentary blending gently satirical humour with deeper underpinnings, King of the Belgians is a delightful, surprisingly respectful ribbing of the incongruity of monarchy, Belgium, and the Balkans.

Loveless 27th Jan 18:30 Town Hall Theatre BUY

Andrei Zvyagintsev | Russia | 127 mins | 2017 | Drama

Zhenya and Boris are going through a vicious divorce marked by resentment, frustration and recriminations. Already embarking on new lives, each with a new partner, they are impatient to start again, to turn the page – even if it means threatening to abandon their 12-year-old son Alyosha

Number One 27th Jan 21:00 Town Hall Theatre BUY

Tonie Marshall | France | 110 mins | 2017 | Drama

Number One is an outstanding film which centres around a business executive attempting to crash through the glass ceiling and become the first woman to lead a major French company. Timely, topical and thought provoking, don’t miss Tonie Marshall’s superb picture which features a brilliant performance from Emmanuelle Devos.

Winter Brothers 28th Jan 12:30 Town Hall Theatre BUY

Hlynur Pálmason | Denmark | 100 mins | 2017 | Drama

Emil (Elliott Crosset Hove) works with his brother in a limestone quarry and sells to miners the adulterated alcohol he makes. Relationships change when the mixture prepared by Emil is accused of poisoning one of them and the trust of those around him, including his brother, drifts away from him.

Animals 28th Jan 14:45 Town Hall Theatre BUY

Greg Zglinski | Switzerland | 94 mins | 2017 | Mystery, Thriller

A collision with a sheep initiates a whole series of weird and unsettling experiences for couple Anna and Nick which ultimately leave them both incapable of being certain exactly where they are: in the real world, in their own imaginations – or or in someone else’s imagination. Full of haunting, nerve-jangling touches, Animals is not simply an exercise in spooky atmospherics, it works superbly as an unorthodox genre thriller and mindbending mental puzzle.

A Man Called Ove 28th Jan 16:45 Town Hall Theatre BUY

Hannes Holm | Sweden | 116 mins | 2016 | Comedy, Drama

Meet Ove (Rolf Lassgård), an isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse - the quintessential angry old man next door. Having entirely given up on life, his days are spent in a constant monotony of enforcing housing association rules and visiting his beloved wife Sonja’s grave. Ove’s somewhat content existence is disrupted, however, with the arrival of a boisterous young family who move in next door.

The Square 28th Jan 20:00 Town Hall Theatre BUY

Ruben Östlund Sweden | 142 mins | 2017 | Comedy, Drama

Force Majeure director Ruben Östlund returns with a knife-sharp satire on art, culture and communication in the digital age. Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, The Square stars Claes Bang (The Bridge) Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale, Mad Men) and Dominic West (The Wire).
