PLYMOUTH ARTS CENTRE
The Art Of Breaking Up (U) Farce and furious French comedy - yes, we thought the term ‘French comedy’ was an oxymoron too.
A Scanner Darkly (15) An animated Keanu Reeves (hey, there’s a first time for everything) gets, like, totally bummed out in this excellent screen version of Philip K. Dick’s paranoid wheeze. Uh, dude.
Oklahoma! (U) So good, it’s got an exclamation mark in the title.
Hoodwinked (U) Gimcrack animated Red Riding Hood spoof. Grimm? You’re fucken right it is.
A Good Year (12A) Probably has a scene where Russell Crowe carries
The Departed (18) I’d rather Jack… Old man Nicholson steals the show in this perfectly acceptable policier - acceptable if you haven’t seen Infernal Affairs, that is.
Happy Feet (U) Animated flick warning of the perils of global warming, by way of a dancing penguin. Eat your heart out, Al Gore.
The Holiday (12A) Wifeswap chick flick from the person behind What Women Want. You don’t seriously need any more details than that, do you?!
Future Shorts December 2006 Programme (15) A host of films from those lovely Future Shorts johnnies.
