After he is fired from his job, disgraced poet Ted Wallace (Allam) is summoned to Swafford Hall, the country manor of his friends Lord and Lady Logan (Modine and Shaw), to investigate a series of unexplained miracle healings. Ted tracks down the perpetrator of the phenomena, fifteen-year-old David Logan (Tommy Knight), whose parents believe he has healing hands. Unaware that David is using some unorthodox methods, the Logans are set on sharing their son’s gift with the world. With a poet’s passion for the truth, Ted hurries to debunk the miracles and save a young man from a lifetime of embarrassment. His natural cynicism makes him the ideal candidate to get to the bottom of events – and some good whisky bottles – in this hilarious tale based on Stephen Fry’s seminal novel.

Lost City Of Z centres on the story of real-life explorer Colonel Percy Fawcett (Hunnam), who in the 1920s journeyed into the Amazon jungle searching for a lost civilisation. Having left behind his sparky, intellectual and protesting wife (Miller), and accompanied by his aide-de-camp Henry Costin (Pattinson), he faces all manner of human and natural obstacles on his quest to find the mythical city.
Berlin, 1940. The city is paralysed by fear. When Otto and Anna's son is killed at the front, their loss drives them to an extraordinary act of resistance: they start to drop anonymous postcards all over the city, attacking Hitler and his regime. If they are caught, it means certain execution. Soon their campaign comes to the attention of Gestapo inspector Escherich (Daniel Brühl), and a murderous game of cat and mouse begins.
Alone In Berlin is based on Hans Fallada's bestselling novel, described by Primo Levi as "the greatest book ever written about German resistance to the Nazis"
