Into Film Clubs
Find out everything you need to know about starting an Into Film Club.
The theme of family and change runs throughout this week's new cinema releases. We have an entertaining story of one of the most famous families in sport, a documentary that showcases how young people are changing the world and a nostalgia-sprinkled throwback to a previous generation, all of which touch upon generational change in different ways.
Safety is of course at the forefront of everyone's mind right now so make sure to check out the specific guidelines for your local cinema before visiting. Meanwhile, many cinemas have used lockdown as an opportunity to improve and renovate their venues so that we can all enjoy the best possible cinema experience.
This sports biopic is a sharp and emotional look at the early days of two sporting icons and their support network whilst also being a wholly entertaining story with a fantastic lead performance from the evergreen Will Smith. Now known as two of the greatest tennis players to ever set foot on a court, Venus and Serena Williams were not always destined for great things but despite their difficult environment growing up in Compton, California their father, Richard Williams, always believed they could take the tennis world by storm if given the opportunity. Closed off from the tennis community because of their race and class, we see how Richard, with huge help from his wife Brandy, struggled with playing the roles of father, mother and coach whilst dealing with their own precarious marriage.
A documentary that could very well be looked back upon in the future as an important turning point in global activism, Dear Future Children shows us three examples of modern-day youth activism, young people who are tackling social justice, climate change and democracy in different settings but whose protagonists share common goals. Chile, Uganda, and Hong Kong all act as stages for viewing democracy in action - this is powerful filmmaking looking to inspire the next generation of activists.
Lastly, the much-loved Ghostbusters franchise is revived again for modern day audiences, the story beginning when single mother Callie relocates her family to their inherited farmhouse in the countryside. Teenage Trevor and his brainy younger sister Phoebe must navigate their new surroundings whilst unexplained earthquakes and mysterious supernatural events across the town begin to take place. An exploration of their ancestral home reveals their grandfather's involvement with the original Ghostbusters, a now largely forgotten ghost-catching business. It is now up to the family to continue his legacy and work out why these strange events are taking place, using their grandfather's old gadgets along the way. This continuation to the Ghostbuster story will delight both previous fans and younger audiences, while also exploring topics around family, growing up and identity.
