Shoya Ishida starts bullying the new girl in class, Shoko Nishimiya, because she is deaf. But as the teasing continues, the rest of the class starts to turn on Shoya for his lack of compassion.

Releasing April 6th. When their Tehran flat is damaged in the dramatic opening scenes of the film, Emad and Rana, a young married couple, are forced to move into another flat, loaned by a friend, not realising the previous tenant was a prostitute. Thinking it is Emad, Rana lets a stranger into the house while she is washing her hair. The assault that follows opens a rift between the couple as Rana seeks solitude and Emad seeks revenge. Set against a production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman in which Emad and Rana appear as Willy and Linda Loman, The Salesman is work of immense emotional complexity that stands proudly among Farhadi’s best films.

Tony Award-winning director Ivo van Hove (A View from the Bridge at the Young Vic Theatre) returns to National Theatre Live screens with a modern production of Ibsen’s masterpiece.

In April 1889, Earl Ciel Phantomhive and his servants, Sebastian Michaelis and Snake, board the luxury passenger ship Campania alongside the Midford family—not for recreational purposes, however, but for investigating illegal human experimentation, which is later demonstrated at an Aurora Society meeting headed by a questionable doctor. Deceased individuals are coming back to life, but they have changed into something other than human. What is reviving the dead—a breakthrough in medicine or an unforeseen force?

Releasing May 11th. Music. Power. Jealousy. Lucian Msamati (Luther, Game of Thrones, NT Live: The Comedy of Errors) plays Salieri in Peter Shaffer’s iconic play, broadcast live from the National Theatre, and with live orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna, the music capital of the world – and he’s determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy his name. Seized by obsessive jealousy he begins a war with Mozart, with music, and ultimately, with God. After winning multiple Olivier and Tony Awards when it had its premiere at the National Theatre in 1979, Amadeus was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film.

A drifter discovers a pair of sunglasses that allow him to wake up to the fact that aliens have taken over the Earth.

Audacious, timelessly disturbing, ruthlessly frank. A thinking person’s slasher. Long banned for public exhibition, this nightmarish journey into voyeurism, sexual psychosis and murder was seriously misunderstood and damaged the career of director Michael Powell. Today it can be viewed as the breakthrough psychological drama that it really was. If it had been a low budget quickie rather than an A-grade production with major stars, perhaps the fuss might not have arisen.
