BIFA PRESENTS: Trespass against us
Set across three generations of the Cutler family who live as outlaws in their own anarchic corner of Britain’s richest countryside. Chad Cutler is heir apparent to his bruising criminal father, Colby and has been groomed to spend his life hunting, thieving and tormenting the police. But with his own son, Tyson coming of age, Chad soon finds himself locked in a battle with his father for the future of his young family. When Colby learns of Chad’s dreams for another life he sets out to tie his son and grandson into the archaic order that has bound the Cutler family for generations. He engineers a spectacular piece of criminal business involving a heist, a high-speed car chase and a manhunt, which leaves Chad bruised and bloodied and with his very freedom at stake.
In a hideout near the Mexican border, an aging Logan (Hugh Jackman) cares for the ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart). The pair are unexpectedly brought out from seclusion when a young mutant girl (Dafne Keen) arrives and needs their help to stay safe. James Mangold directed this third entry of the Marvel Comics Wolverine franchise.

The Sleeping Beauty (The Royal Ballet)
Marius Petipa’s classic 19th-century choreography is combined with newly created sections by Frederick Ashton, Anthony Dowell and Christopher Wheeldon. The ballet contains many memorable moments, from the iconic Rose Adagio, when Aurora meets her four royal suitors, to the vigorous hunting dances and the famous waltz for Aurora and her Prince. Throughout, Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky’s score conveys passion and intensity.
