Just when you thought it was safe to catch your breath... !!
Hope you've recovered from mother! suitably... We'll be keeping the anté sky high as we bring you Korean femme fatale slasher, The Villainess! As well as the electric tennis rivalry between the placid Björn Borg and the volatile John McEnroe!
It’s the summer of 1980 and Björn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason) is the top tennis player in the world, dominating the sport both on and off the court. A powerful and rigorously disciplined player, there is only one obstacle in his pursuit of a record-breaking fifth Wimbledon championship: the highly talented but ferociously abrasive young American, John McEnroe (a perfectly cast Shia LaBeouf).
"Playing tennis may not seem the best use of Shia LaBeouf's talents, but he's terrific in a role that plays off the controversial star's hotheaded persona." Peter Debruge Variety
Cross those fabulous 1970s female-driven Japanese exploitation thrillers with a dash of Luc Besson’s Nikita and the chop’n’slice of a Tarantino film and you’ve got this rollercoaster ride of Korean action and mayhem.
Kim Ok-vin leads the charge – literally, in the film’s bravura opening sequence – as an assassin out to avenge those who wronged her.
Directed by Philip John Starring Jack Parry-Jones, Christy O'Donnell & Tara Lee
ArtHouse are excited and proud to present Moon Dogs! BAFTA nominated lead actor, Jack Parry-Jones, (we call him Ben!) is a familiar, well loved face here - You may recognise him as one of our team back in the day before he was stealing scenes in Holby City, Da Vinci's Demons, Our Girl and the upcoming Welsh/English crime drama, Bang!
This a familiar coming-of-age story that will have you remembering all the good (and bad) things you got up to as a teenager – fantastically paced to a wonderful soundtrack. The acting is superb!
Join us Friday 22nd September at 9PM to celebrate a fantastic debut in film and find out all about its creation with a cast 'n' crew Q&A afterwards!
