Cloud Atlas (15)
The actions and consequences of individual lives impact on one another through the past, the present and the future.
Action, mystery and romance weave dramatically through the story as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution in the distant future.
Each member of the ensemble, which includes Tom Hanks, Hugh Grant, Halle Berry and Susan Sarandon, appears in multiple roles as the stories move through time.
One of the most expensive independent films ever made, Cloud Atlas is based on the 2004 novel by David Mitchell.
At Cinebowl, Uttoxeter.
A Liar’s Autobiography: The Untrue Story of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman (15)
Four of the Python’s reunite as voice actors in this fictionalised account of the life of Graham Chapman.
Although Chapman died in 1989, he recorded readings of his book, A Liar’s Autobiography, which have now ingeniously been used to provide his voice for this animated feature.
Fellow Pythons John Cleese, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam play themselves and other characters.
Not a documentary and not a Monty Python film, A Liar’s Autobiography is Chapman’s own take on his bizarre life and his search for self-knowledge.
The animated film is based on his written autobiography, which was first published in 1980.
The work is credited inside to five authors: Chapman, his partner David Sherlock, Alex Martin, Douglas Adams, and David A Yallop.
Frequent Python collaborator Carol Cleveland will be at a Question and Answer session prior to the screening on Saturday, March 2 at 6:30pm.
