Farming - Official Trailer - In Cinemas October 11


Written and Directed by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje

Starring Damson Idris, Kate Beckinsal,e Gugu Mbatha-Raw, John Dagleish, Jaime Winstone, Ann Mitchell, Genevieve Nnaji, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Lee Ross and Zephan Amissah

Based on his own life story, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s FARMING charts the extraordinary journey of a young fostered Nigerian boy who, struggling to find an identity, falls in with a skinhead gang in 1980’s England. 

At six weeks old, Enitan (Zephan Amissah) is left in the care of a white working- class family in the dock-town of Tilbury, in Essex. His new surrogate mother, Ingrid (Kate Beckinsale), makes for a complex, but dubious foster parent. Unsure of his place in the world, and lacking a mother’s love, desperate to belong the teenage Enitan (Damson Idris) spirals into self-destruction, falling in with a local skinhead gang led by Levi (John Dagleish).

When all seems lost, a sympathetic teacher, Miss Dapo (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), offers him one last shot at redemption.

Told with brutal honesty, FARMING is an unflinching autobiographical portrait of a young man who must battle the odds and realise that, in a world of hate, his toughest battle will be learning to love himself.

FARMING is released in UK cinemas October 11

Loopers: The Caddie’s Long Walk, in Cinemas from 23rd July


Narrated by Bill Murray
In cinemas for a limited time only from 23rd July 2019

11th July, 2019, London, UK: CinEvents, in partnership with Gravitas Ventures, drive Loopers: The Caddie’s Long Walk, narrated by Bill Murray, into cinemas across the UK and Ireland for a limited time only from July 23rd, just days after the 148th Open at Royal Portrush.

Loopers: The Caddies’s Long Walk is the most thorough feature-length film documentary ever developed on golf’s historic caddie profession and explores the incredible personal bond that a golfer and a caddie develop through hours of time together. The film is narrated by actor and the most famous Caddie Hall of Fame member,  Bill Murray (Ghostbusters, Lost in Translation, Caddyshack).


It is often said that a good caddie does three things: show up, keep up and shut up. But a great caddie wears many hats. They’re the player’s psychologist, mother/father figure, technical advisor and confidante. The film unveils the working dynamic between famous partnerships like the heartfelt story of Tom Watson’s and caddie Bruce Edwards. Conversely, it delves into the making of a caddie’s career with stories like Greg Puga — a young Bel Air Caddie from East Los Angeles who fought his way to Augusta to play in the Masters as a Mid-Amateur Champ. Another is the compelling legacy of caddie master Mike Kiely, who has been the caddie organizer at historic Canterbury Golf Club in Cleveland for a half-century and guided many caddies toward successful lives.

Whether familiar or new, these are stories that will make you re-think the way you look at Golf, and especially the job of the Caddie.


Loopers: The Caddie's Long Walk is a visual tour de force, shot on the iconic courses of Pebble Beach, Augusta National, St. Andrews, Carnoustie, Prestwick, Ballybunion, and Lahinch. Crafted in the spirit of documentaries like “20 feet from Stardom”, “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” and “Step into Liquid”, the film is a must-watch document of the game of golf as you’ve never seen it before."

The film includes interviews with World Golf Hall of Famers Sir Nick Faldo, Tom Watson, Ben Crenshaw, Lee Trevino, Curtis Strange and former Masters Tournament and U.S. Open champion Fuzzy Zoeller. Professional caddies who participated include Steve Williams (Tiger Woods’ former caddie), Carl Jackson (Crenshaw), Fanny Sunesson (Faldo), Pete Bender (Greg Norman and others), Michael Greller (Jordan Spieth) and Jariah “Jerry” Beard (Zoeller at the 1979 Masters). Long-time golf journalists Rick Reilly, Michael Collins and Ward Clayton are also interviewed.

“Loopers” is directed by Southern California filmmaker Jason Baffa, who has directed successful independent films on the global surfing sub-culture, including “Bella Vita,” “One California Day” and “Singlefin: Yellow.” Baffa’s first film on golf harkens back to his days growing up when he played golf with his father and uncle.

Loopers: The Caddie's Long Walk will be shown in over 70 cinemas across the UK and Ireland for a limited time only. Tickets can be found at www.mycineplace.com/loopers

IN CINEMAS AND DIGITAL HD AUGUST 16TH

Truth really is wilder than fiction in this captivating retelling of one of the literary world’s most infamous hoaxes.

Laura Albert (Laura Dern: Big Little Lies) writes as her “avatar,” a disenfranchised young queer man named JT LeRoy.

Together, they embark on a wild ride of double lives, infiltrating the Hollywood and literary elite, and discovering who they are while pretending to be someone else.
Hilarious and tragic in equal measures, JT LeRoy tells the story of the incredible ‘true lie’ that shook pop culture.
