Disney’s The Lion King, directed by Jon Favreau (The Jungle Book), journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

Based on a true story, Philippe Tłokiński (Adventures of a Mathematician, Quartier des Banques) stars as real-life Polish war hero Jan Nowak-Jeziorański in the latest blockbuster from cult director Władysław Pasikowski (Pitbull: Last Dog, Jack Strong, Pigs). A man of extraordinary courage who served as an emissary between the commanders of Poland’s Home Army resistance movement and the Polish Government in Exile in London at the height of the Second World War, Jan came to be known as “The Messenger from Warsaw.” Hunted by all the Axis Powers’ secret services, he is smuggled out of Poland with a mission to make his way to London with information which would decide the fate of Poland and the war, meeting along the way people who will change his life forever.

Dr Jean Markham returns to the town she left as a teenager to take over her late father’s medical practice. When a school-yard scuffle lands Charlie (Gregor Selkirk) in her surgery, she invites him to visit the hives in her garden and tell his secrets to the bees, as she once did. The new friendship between the boy and the bee keeper brings his mother Lydia (Grainger) into Jean’s world. In the sanctuary of the doctor’s house the two women find themselves drawn to one another in a way that Jean recognises and fears, and Lydia could never have expected. But, in 1950’s small-town Scotland, their new secret can’t stay hidden forever.

Inna De Yard is a joyous, vibrant film set against the backdrop of the lush green mountains of Jamaica in which a superstar group of reggae legends gather to record a new album of infectious hits in an unplugged style that harks back to their roots. The musicians include Ken Boothe, Winston McAnuff, Kiddus I, Cedric Myton and Judy Mowatt whose iconic songs capture the poetry and passion of their homeland.

Andrea, a recently sober writer whose career has stalled since she published her debut novel several years ago, strikes up an affair with Nick, a doctor-turned-writer who is hailed for his wartime memoir.

Father Morris is a dissatisfied priest who has not been happy with his job for some time. After hearing another unremorseful and untruthful confession from a parishioner who is cheating on his wife, a quick-witted teenager, Amber, comes into his confessional and starts to turn Father Morris’s life upside down. Amber questions everything Father Morris stands for, and begins to get under his skin in a way that hasn’t happened before. Throughout the evening, interesting characters pass through Father Morris’s confessional as he reflects on what matters most in life and continues to quip with Amber, who slowly reveals why she came to confession.
