Also showing - Town of Runners / The Bad and the Beautiful / Breathing / Irvine Welsh's Ecstasy

 

Town of Runners (PG)

The winners of all four golds in the long-distance track events at the Beijing Olympics come from the same Ethiopian highland town, Bekoji, where they were trained by Sentayehu Eshetu. This documentary follows Eshetu and his young protégés as he prepares another cohort of champions.

The Bad and the Beautiful (PG)

Vincente Minnelli's classic 1952 critique of Hollywood ethics is a triptych of flashbacks depicting producer Jonathan Shields's ill-treatment of his collaborators. Kirk Douglas was Oscar-nominated for his performance, with Lana Turner as his star and spurned lover.

Breathing (15)

Compelling, coolly shot directorial debut for Karl Markovics. Teenager takes job at a morgue, after years in detention, tries to rebuild his life while coming to terms with guilt.

Irvine Welsh's Ecstasy (18)

Stars Kristin Kreuk of Smallville as one-half of a chemically enhanced Edinburgh romance. The marketing plays, perhaps rashly, on its connections to Trainspotting.
