Swanhilda notices her fianceé Franz is infatuated with the beautiful Coppélia
who sits reading on her balcony each day. Nearly breaking up the two
sweethearts, Coppélia is not what she seems and Swanhilda decides to
teach Franz a lesson…
The Bolshoi’s unique version of Coppélia exhibits a fascinating reconstruction
of the original 19th century choreography of this ebullient comedy involving a
feisty heroine, a boyish fianceé with a wandering eye, and an old dollmaker.
The company’s stunning corps de ballet shines in the divertissements and
famous “dance of the hours,” and its principals abound in youthful energy
and irresistible humor in this effervescent production.

Perhaps more than any other artist, Van Gogh’s life has long captured the imagination of storytellers. Delving deep into his fascinating and sometimes deeply troubled world comes this definitive, award-winning documentary directed by David Bickerstaff.
Showcasing Van Gogh’s iconic works like never before and featuring exclusive interviews with the curatorial team at the Van Gogh Museum, this EXHIBITION ON SCREEN favourite from Season 2 makes a welcome return to the big screen.
Rfor language, some sexual references and nudity.
In 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, the American writer and art-lover James Lord (Armie Hammer) is asked by his friend, the world-renowned artist Alberto Giacometti (Geoffrey Rush), to sit for a portrait. The process, Giacometti assures Lord, will take only a few days. Flattered and intrigued, Lord agrees. So begins not only the story of an offbeat friendship, but, seen through the eyes of Lord, an insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and, at times, downright chaos of the artistic process. FINAL PORTRAIT is a portrait of a genius, and of a friendship between two men who are utterly different, yet increasingly bonded through a single, ever-evolving act of creativity. It is a film which shines a light on the artistic process itself, by turns exhilarating, exasperating and bewildering, questioning whether the gift of a great artist is a blessing or a curse.
PG-13for mature thematic elements, some violence, sexual material and smoking

The man was carrying nothing; his hands clasped to a fresh bullet wound leaking blood from his belly.
This was Vincent van Gogh, then a little known artist; now the most famous artist in the world.
His tragic death has long been known, what has remained a mystery is how and why he came to be shot.
Loving Vincent tells that story.
