The Hundred-Foot Journey (Certificate PG)

Milborne Port Movies, in conjunction with Somerset Moviola, are showing the film "The Hundred-Foot Journey" (Certificate PG)

Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant - the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Academy Award (R)-winner Helen Mirren), gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own, escalate to all out war between the two establishments - until Hassan's passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme. Mallory's enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), combine with his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Mme. Mallory cannot ignore. At first Mme. Mallory's culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan's gift as a chef and takes him under her wing.

The Imitation Game (Certificate 12A)

Milborne Port Movies, in conjunction with Somerset Moviola, are showing the film "The Imitation Game" (Certificate 12A)

During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst and war hero Alan Turing to investigate a reported burglary. They instead ended up arresting Turing himself on charges of 'gross indecency', an accusation that would lead to his devastating conviction for the criminal offence of homosexuality - little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing.

Based on the real-life story of Alan Turing, who is credited with cracking the German Enigma code, “The Imitation Game” portrays the nail-biting race against time undertaken by Turing and his brilliant team at Britain's top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of the Second World War.

Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war and saved thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British establishment, but his work and legacy live on.

The Imitation Game stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Turing and Keira Knightley as close friend and fellow code-breaker Joan Clarke with some scenes filmed locally at Sherborne School.

My Old Lady (Certificate 12A)

Milborne Port Movies, in conjunction with Somerset Moviola, are showing the film "My Old Lady" (Certificate 12A)

Mathias (Kevin Kline) is a down-and-out New Yorker who travels to Paris to liquidate a huge, valuable apartment he has inherited from his estranged father.

Once there, however, he discovers a refined old woman Mathilde (Maggie Smith) living in the apartment with her daughter Chloé (Kristin Scott Thomas).

Mathias quickly learns that the apartment is a “viager” – an ancient French system for buying and selling apartments – and that he will not actually get possession of the apartment until Mathilde dies.
While working with a Parisian real-estate dealer (Dominique Pinon), to sell his contract for the apartment, Mathias discovers that Mathilde and his father were lovers for more than 50 years.
