“Asif Kapadia’s Amy Winehouse film is a tragic masterpiece”, The Guardian

★★★★★ – The Guardian

The highest ever box office success for a homegrown non-fiction film,  Amy is the unmissable story of musical icon Amy Winehouse, told by award-winning director Asif Kapadia (Senna).  Kapadia weaves a heartbreakingly tender and immersive portrait of Amy the child, girl and young woman, using family home videos, personal studio footage, and interviews with friends, family, colleagues and lovers. The result is unforgettable.

She’s Funny that Way

10% off for UKJF Members (promotional code: 2015ukjewishfilm)

A kaleidoscopic tour-de-force, featuring outrageously funny performances from Hollywood A-listers Jennifer Aniston, Owen Wilson and Imogen Poots. Directed by New York legend Peter Bogdanovich and premiering at Venice Film Festival, the film tells the story of a theatre production gone wrong, when a successful Broadway director (Wilson) casts his call girl (Poots) to star alongside his own wife (Kathryn Hahn). Secret crushes and hidden affairs erupt, as parallel narratives cross and get entangled to a delightfully entertaining effect. Featuring wonderful cameos from Rhys Ifans and Cybill Shepherd.

Iris

3

10% off for UKJF Members (promotional code: 2015ukjewishfilm)

In his 50th and last film, veteran filmmaker, Albert Maysles, pays a wry tribute to Iris Apfel, a quick-witted, highly original 93-year-old New York style icon. She is also a cover girl!

Iris is a supreme example of ageing outrageously, with her own unique taste and following. Born in 1921, she learned about style by working in fashion, illustration and textile design. She likens her fashion sense to jazz as she also draws on her talent for improvisation.

This is a film about creativity and how, even at Iris’ age, a soaring spirit continues to inspire.

The Cobbler

“The strange sense of unreality and wall-to-wall klezmer-inspired score give it the feel of some long-lost Yiddish fairy tale.” Variety

Max Simkin (Adam Sandler) repairs shoes in the same New York shop that has been in his family for generations. Disenchanted with the grind of daily life, Max stumbles upon an heirloom that allows him to step into the lives of his customers and see the world in a new way. Directed by Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent), and starring Adam Sandler, Dustin Hoffman and Steve Buscemi, this supernatural parable has charm, beauty, and a gorgeous klezmer-infused score.
