Branagh Theatre Live: A Winter’s Tale
Today at 7pm.
Set in the 1950s, when Irish economic migration was at its height, this good-hearted adaptation of Colm Tóibín’s bestseller stars Saoirse Ronan (Hanna) as Eilis Lacey, who leaves rural Wexford for a menial job and a rackety boarding house in the eponymous Brooklyn. Friday, Monday and Wednesday at 6pm, Saturday and Thursday at 8.45pm and Tuesday at 2pm and 5pm.
With more than six movie versions of J. M. Barrie’s beloved tale to reference, director Joe Wright (Pride And Prejudice) manages to deliver a magnificently inventive take on the orphan boy who refuses to grow up. With nary a member of the Darling family in sight, Wright’s film concentrates on Peter’s origins. Newcomer Levi Miller plays Pan, who, believing that he’ll eventually meet his mother “in this world… or another”, finds himself in a fantastical land. There he must defend various outlandish characters from the evil pirate Blackbeard (Jackman) – and in a mighty twist on the original, he’s aided by a young James ‘Captain’ Hook (Garrett Hedlund, Inside Llewyn Davis). Wright’s boldly eclectic cast also includes Amanda Seyfried, Kathy Burke, Rooney Mara (as warrior-princess Tiger Lily) and Cara Delevingne… as a mermaid! Saturday at 12.30pm and 3pm and Sunday at 12.30pm.
