Marriage Story Language: English | Subs: Dutch The once-so-happy marriage of New York theatre director Charlie (Adam Driver) and Hollywood actress Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) has run aground. With the welfare of their son Henry as a priority, the two want to arrive at an amicable divorce. And yet the administrative settlement turns into a battle to the tune of seasoned lawyers crossing swords. Nicole and Charlie struggle through this phase in the realisation that, as parents of Henry, they will always know each other. Marriage Story is an exceptionally sharp-witted and compassionate portrait under the direction of Academy Award nominee Noah Baumbach. His movie is a heartbreaking reflection on the perfectly normal and yet absolutely absurd partnership called marriage. At the same time his film offers an intimate look at the unavoidable impact a relationship has on our personal development. Apart from all that, top-notch actors Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson (who truly plays the role of a lifetime!) are the ones who make Marriage Story so impressive. It has won 61 awards and been nominated for 6 Oscars 2020!

Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love Language: English | Subs: Dutch
PREMIERENick Broomfield’s compelling film about the relationship between Leonard Cohen and his muse Marianne Ihlen is redolent of the early 1960s. The year is 1960 and the 26-year-old Canadian writer/poet Leonard Cohen leaves his home in Montreal for the Greek island of Hydra, where he meets Marianne Ihlen, a Norwegian who would become his great love and muse, immortalised in the song So Long, Marianne. They lived happily together for many years in the sun-drenched paradise that was home to a close-knit community of artists who practised free love. It all changed when Cohen discovered his talents as a singer/songwriter, relocated to New York and became a superstar. British filmmaker Nick Broomfield, who as a 20-year-old student himself had a brief affair with Marianne on Hydra, sketches the tragic but intense love story of the two, using previously unseen archive material, interviews with those involved and poetic voice-overs by Cohen and Ihlen. Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love is like Cohen’s music – melancholy, poetic and intimate. But above all, it is a film about the love between Marianne and Leonard, which – despite the fact that they were no longer together – continued until death separated them. A beautiful farewell.
