Suffragette (12A) In early 20th-century Britain, the growing suffragette movement forever changes the life of working wife and mother Maud Watts (Carey Mulligan). Galvanized by political activist Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep), Watts joins a diverse group of women who fight for equality and the right to vote. Faced with increasing police action, Maud and her dedicated suffragettes must play a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse, risking their jobs, homes, family and lives for a just cause.

Bridge of Spies (12A) During the Cold War, the Soviet Union captures U.S. pilot Francis Gary Powers after shooting down his U-2 spy plane. Sentenced to 10 years in prison, Powers’ only hope is New York lawyer James Donovan (Tom Hanks), recruited by a CIA operative to negotiate his release. Donovan boards a plane to Berlin, hoping to win the young man’s freedom through a prisoner exchange. If all goes well, the Russians would get Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance), the convicted spy who Donovan defended in court. Saturday at 5.30pm, Monday at 5.45pm and Wednesday at 8.30pm.

Sunset Song (12A) Peter Mullan is the tyrannical head of an overburdened family in which only his daughter, the resigned but serene Chris (Deyn, thoroughly convincing), commands our sympathies. To escape the harsh realities of her family life and the backbreaking toil, she seeks solace with a lover, Ewan (Guthrie). But her happiness is cut short when Ewan is conscripted into the army, and their relationship is tested just as much as Chris’s loyalty to her dysfunctional family. Sunday at 8.30pm and Tuesday at 2pm.
