Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Momoa), Cyborg (Fisher) and The Flash (Miller) come together for the first time in the big-screen debut of DC’s superhero ensemble, the Justice League. The action begins a few months after the events of Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice – and life after the Man of Steel isn’t going so well. Violence and terror are on the rise, and a new extra-terrestrial threat has emerged. It’s down to Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince to save the planet, but they know they can’t do it alone. Inspired by Superman’s selfless sacrifice, they assemble a team of metahumans to join their cause. Boasting Zack Snyder’s trademark stunning visuals and a lighter tone than 2016’s gloomy Dawn Of Justice, Justice League promises to be the crowd-pleasing superhero mash-up that kick-starts the DC Extended Universe.
Starring: Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz, Cherry Jones, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Kristin Scott Thomas, Timothy Spall. UK 2017. 71 mins.
Janet (Scott Thomas) has just been appointed to a key ministerial position in the shadow cabinet – the crowning achievement of her political career. She and her husband Bill (Spall) plan to celebrate this with a few close friends. As the guests arrive at their home in London, the party takes an unexpected turn when Bill suddenly makes some explosive revelations that take everyone present by surprise. What follows is a hilarious comedy of tragic proportions in which love, friendships and political convictions are soon called into question. From acclaimed British filmmaker Sally Potter, The Party is a smart, fast-paced film full of razor-sharp one-liners that perfectly suits these turbulent times.
