EVITA - Barbican [audio Described]
This performance will be audio described by VocalEyes - describing the arts (with a Touch Tour at 6.30pm) Following a sell-out season at Regents Park Open Air Theatre, this turbocharged show lights up the Barbican over summer: Forget everything you know about Evita: this one properly rocks (Time Out). From a life of poverty to spiritual leader of the nation, Eva Pern was loved, hated, derided and venerated. Dividing the Argentinian people with her patriotic speeches, her ambition, glamour and magnetism transformed her into one of the worlds first major political celebrities. Jamie Lloyd reinvents Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webbers iconic musical, its chart-topping score including Dont Cry for Me Argentina, Oh What A Circus, Another Suitcase in Another Hall and You Must Love Me the winner of an Oscar for Best Original Song.

TOM's Film Club: Long Days Journey Into Night (12A)
At only thirty years old and heavily influenced by Andrei Tarkovsky's Stalker to make films different from the mainstream, Bi Gan’s second feature is a breathless and audacious neo-noir like nothing you’ve ever seen before, culminating in a sweeping and dream-like one-hour-long climatic shot, unbroken and unedited. Luo Hongwu (Huang Jue) is a former casino manager who returns to his hometown after being away for a long time for the funeral of his father. Upon finding an old photo in a broken electronic clock (one of many of the film’s signifiers on the themes of memory and time), he begins to search obsessively for Wan Qiwen (Tang Wei), a woman he once loved, who disappeared mysteriously and whom he has never been able to forget, as seen through frequent flashbacks of her in a green dress. Fearing her disappearance might be connected with her attachment to a gangster who also murdered Lou’s friend many years previously (known only in the film as “Wildcat”), Luo’s return and subsequent search for Wan leads him on a path that interweaves both past and present, as well as dream and reality. Told in two parts: the first an achronological mosaic of a detective story, the second a nocturnal dream comprised impressively in a hallucinatory hour-long shot which seems to span a longer field of memory and time (plus table tennis, pool and karaoke!). Long Day’s Journey Into Night is a technical tour-de-force that demands to be seen on a big screen and will restore your faith in the power and mystery of cinema. “It's a vanishingly rare occurrence to see something on screen and be unable to wrap your head around how it was achieved. But in Long Day's Journey Into Night... some kind of sorcery is at work” - Wendy Ide, Guardian Seated (unreserved) In Mandarin Chinese with English subtitles Book two or more films in same transaction and save £1 per ticket (discount auto-applies at checkout, full price tickets only) TOM’s Friends get 15% off 1625 tickets available for those aged 16-25 and booking independently of parents/guardians (limited availability), click here for more info Rated: 12A, under 16s must be accompanied by an adult Duration: 138 mins Please note: This is the 2D version of this film

TOM's Film Club: Shoplifters (15)
Winner of the 2018 Cannes Palme d’Or, Hirokazu Kore-eda’s (After Life, Still Walking) Shoplifters is a complex, profoundly moving drama about the forces holding a struggling family together, which has garnered thematic comparisons to last year’s Palme d’Or winner Parasite in regards to issues of family, class and equality, though stylistically the two couldn’t be any more different in terms of genre and tone (Catch Parasite here!) Osamu (Lily Franky), his wife Nobuyu (Sakura Andô) and grandma Hatsue (played by the late great veteran Japanese character actress Kirin Kiki who was a regular in the films of Kore-eda) head the Shibatas; a poverty-stricken family living in a ramshackle Tokyo bungalow who routinely turn to petty thieving to make ends meet. After one of their shoplifting sessions, Osamu and son Shota (Kairi Jyo) happen upon Yuri (Miyu Sasaki), a little girl sheltering from the cold, and take her in. Despite the continued hardships of their existence, this newly modified family lives happily – until an unforeseen incident begins to test their bond. By shining the spotlight on an unconventional domestic unit with insight, compassion and humour, Kore-eda gives rare prominence to Japanese society’s urban underclass and questions the possibilities of survival on the margins. An incredibly satisfying film made up of delicate brushstrokes, Shoplifters charms while eschewing overt sentimentality and is full of the director’s trademark subtlety and nuanced moral inquiry. “This is a brilliant and audacious film, one of his very best, a study of family trauma and fear of poverty, reviving themes from earlier films such as Nobody Knows (2004) and Like Father Like Son (2013)” - Peter Bradshaw, Guardian Seated (unreserved) In Japanese with English subtitles Book two or more films in same transaction and save £1 per ticket (discount auto-applies at checkout, full price tickets only) TOM’s Friends get 15% off 1625 tickets available for those aged 16-25 and booking independently of parents/guardians (limited availability), click here for more info Rated: 15, under 16s must be accompanied by an adult Duration: 121 mins

TOM's Film Club: Parasite - Black & White (15)
“Nobody is all black or all white” Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes and historically the first foreign-language film ever to win the Best Picture Oscar at the Academy Awards, South Korean auteur Bong Joon-ho’s superb blackly comic satirical masterpiece Parasite returns, but this time as the latest to undergo a modern monochrome makeover à la George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road - Black and Chrome and James Mangold’s Logan Noir. A downtrodden family eke out a hand-to-mouth existence in a basement apartment. Struggling to earn enough for basic survival, their luck changes when the son, Ki-woo (Choi Woo-Shik) is employed to teach English to the daughter of the wealthy Park family in their suburban home. Slowly, daughter, father and mother (Park So-dam, Song Kang-ho and Jang Hye-jin, respectively) bluff their way into roles for the wealthy Seoul household and cunningly infiltrate every aspect of the Parks’ daily life. But when an interloper threatens their newfound comfort, things quickly spiral out of control. Full of energy, verve and a transgressive visual wit, Parasite is incredibly watchable but also brims with rage at the inequalities of contemporary capitalism, with a real focus on the desperation, misery and immorality of poverty. A masterful creation, brilliantly designed, shot and performed, and now presented here in this new colour palette, the film becomes more intimate, with emotions colder and faces sterner – it provides an illuminating counterpoint to a film that has taken audiences by storm, while also fulfilling a long-held dream of Director Bong’s to make a Black & White movie inspired in the style of one of his favourite films, FW Murnau’s Nosferatu. “At the risk of adding to the hype, Parasite really is the kind of remarkable experience that makes modern movie-going such a joy. I saw it for the fourth time last week and I’m now desperate to view the black-and-white version that Bong recently unveiled at the Rotterdam film festival” - Mark Kermode, Guardian Seated (unreserved) In Korean with English subtitles Book two or more films in same transaction and save £1 per ticket (discount auto-applies at checkout, full price tickets only) TOM’s Friends get 15% off 1625 tickets available for those aged 16-25 and booking independently of parents/guardians (limited availability), click here for more info Rated: 15, under 16s must be accompanied by an adult Duration: 132 mins

Adrenalin O.D // Rash Decison // BKS // System Reset
American Hardcore punk legends Adrenalin O.D. in a very rare visit to the U.K and an even rarer visit to Wales this Summer with support from Rash Decision BKS and System Reset Adrenalin O.D. formed in October 1981.A.O.D.\'s first recordings saw release on the widely distributed New York Thrash cassette compilation released on ROIR cassettes in 1982. The compilation also featured the first recordings of the Beastie Boys, as well as prominent New York City punk bands like Kraut and the Washington DC band Bad Brains. The comedic and speedy "Paul\'s Not Home" became a college radio hit. A.O.D.\'s first vinyl release, a six-song (EP) entitled Let\'s Barbeque, was released on their own Buy Our Records label. Buy Our Records became one of New Jersey\'s largest indie punk labels and springboarded the careers of many bands including Flag of Democracy, Raging Slab, and Pussy Galore. Adrenalin O.D.\'s first album entitled The Wacky Hijinks of Adrenalin O.D. showcased the band\'s use of blazing speed-punk and sarcastic lyrics, taking aim at the suburban experience with songs like "Middle Aged Whore","Trans Am" (the inspiration for the Dead Milkmen\'s "Bitchin\' Camaro"), and the crowd favorite "Rock n\' Roll Gas Station". The band turned down offers from virtually every major metal label looking to market the band to the emerging thrash metal crowds, maintaining that even though their songs had a metallic edge they were a punk band. Some of the songs on HumungousFungusAmongus are the fastest hardcore tracks ever recorded. Catch them FUEL ROCK CLUB August 2020.
