The Great Gatsby’s Carey Mulligan headlines this drama based around members of the early feminist movement at the turn of the twentieth century – and tells the story of these foot soldiers who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse against an increasingly brutal state.

Rising star Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past and Mad Max: Fury Road) stars in this dark comedy-thriller as an ‘Artist and Repertoire’ man who goes to macabre extremes to find his next hit at the height of the Britpop music craze, in this adaptation of John Niven’s best-selling novel.

BURNT (15, SHOWCASE CINEMAS PETERBOROUGH, FROM TOMORROW)

Three-time Oscar-nominee Bradley Cooper (The Hangover series) stars as a chef aiming to redeem himself by spearheading a top London restaurant to gain three Michelin stars – after previously destroying his career with drugs and a diva-like attitude.
