  Rita, Sue and Bob Too on Blu-ray and DVD [read more]
  Best last line ever
  Following an acclaimed career in TV drama (much of which was made available in last year's BFI box set release, Dissent and Disruption: Alan Clarke at the BBC 1969-1989), director Alan Clarke achieved a box-office hit with the much loved raunchy comedy Rita, Sue and Bob Too.

Adapted by Andrea Dunbar from her own play, based on her upbringing on Bradford's Buttershaw estate, Rita, Sue and Bob Too contrasts bawdy laughs with astute social commentary.

30 years on and newly restored by the BFI, the film is released on Blu-ray for the first time in a Dual Format Edition on 22 May 2017. Extras (full details below) include a newly filmed documentary, Having a Ball: The making of Rita, Sue and Bob Too, with extensive cast and crew interviews. Check out the rediscovered original trailer at the link above.

  Caught at Sci-Fi London 2017 [read more]
  First chance to see
  A "work-from-home" journalist couple who've become interested in a new base up on the moor are visited by a strange couple called Mr & Mrs Blair (yes, The Blairs!). They say they want to ask a few questions and the journalists invite the Blairs into their idyllic village home, but what begins with an informal interview descends into a nightmarish fight for survival. This is a film that returns us to the great days of brit SF. It’s Quatermass via Straw Dogs and delivers a tight, extremely tense and unnerving experience, the kind of sci-fi we used to be so good at making.

SCI-FI-LONDON Film Festival stages the UK Premiere of Caught on Thursday 27th April. It's an exciting opening night for #SFL17 with the director Jamie Patterson, writer Alex Francis, producers Jeremy Davis, Chris O'Shea Daly and actors April Pearson, Ruben Crow and Dave Mounfield in attendance!
