DEGAS, PASSION FOR PERFECTION

Director: EXHIBITION ON SCREEN
Cast: EXHIBITION ON SCREEN

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN journeys from the streets of Paris to the heart of a superb exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, whose extensive collection of Degas’ works is the most representative in Britain. With exclusive access to view rare and diverse works, this film tells a fascinating story of Degas’ pursuit for perfection through both experimentation with new techniques and lessons learnt from studying the past masters.

Sometimes frustrated by his own failings, Degas was consumed by obsessive principles and failing eye sight but his determination to capture everyday life was evident in every mark he made. Never fully satisfied, many of Degas’ drawings and sculptures were kept in private during his lifetime but, now through close examination, they can be seen as some of the most beautifully detailed and expressive works in the modern era. Using written accounts by friends and commentators, and the narration of letters written by Degas himself, this film reveals a more complex truth behind one of the most influential French artists of the late 19th-century and serves as an exploration of the complex workings of Degas’ artistic mind.

(2017) [12A] 1 hour 55 mins

Director: Steven Spielberg
Cast: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Sarah Paulson

Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks shine in this thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between the Washington Post’s Katharine Graham, the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor, Ben Bradlee.

They race to catch up with the New York Times to expose a massive government cover-up of secrets relating to the Vietnam war that spanned three decades and four US presidents.

They must overcome their differences as they risk their careers and their very freedom to bring long buried truths to light.

“A stirring drama of principle” (Peter Bradshaw – Guardian)
