Joy is the wild story of a family across four generations and the woman in the centre who founded a business dynasty. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Jennifer Lawrence stars, with Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper, once again under the directional guidance of frequent collaborator David O. Russell, exploring family, loyalty, and love.

Suffragette is a thrilling drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalised and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. Maud (Carey Mulligan) was one such foot soldier. Co stars Helena Bonham Carter, Anne-Marie Duff, Meryl Streep, Ben Whishaw and Brendan Gleeson.
