CREAM SCREEN Presents
Nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Director – making Lina Wertmuller the first woman to be nominated (and later the first woman to win). Seven Beauties stars Giancarlo Giannini as Pasqualino Frafuso, a small time crook known in Naples as "Pasqualino Seven Beauties." Living off his seven sisters and claiming to defend patriarchal honour, Pasqualino goes from a life of power on the streets to a concentration camp where he attempts to escape by seducing a German officer.
The new film from Ken Loach, Paul Laverty and the team behind I, Daniel Blake.
Ricky and his family have been fighting an uphill struggle against debt since the 2008 financial crash. An opportunity to wrestle back some independence appears with a shiny new van and the chance to run a franchise as a self-employed delivery driver. It's hard work, and his wife's job as a carer is no easier. The family unit is strong but when both are pulled in different directions everything comes to breaking point.

1825, Tasmania. A young Irish convict woman hires a local guide to help her track a British officer and his unit through the rough wilderness, motivated by revenge for a terrible act of violence. The film is simultaneously a howling, rage-filled scream and a meditation on the consequences of violence, revenge, tolerance and understanding.
“Aisling Franciosi delivers a tour de force as an Australian woman determined to put a stake through the heart of toxic masculinity. You won't know what hit you.” – Rolling Stone
