Nothing Compares charts Sinéad O’Connor’s phenomenal rise to worldwide fame. This film follows her exile from the pop world as her irreverent personality clashes with the mainstream. 

Off the Rails

Off the Rails | 24 June 

Rikke Brewer and best friend Aiden Knox are ‘failing’ working-class teenagers. They spend their time honing their spectacular UrbEx stunts and gravity-defying parkour skills, hoping that millions of ‘likes’ will be their ticket out of boring Guildford, England.

Still Working 9 till 5

Still Working 9 to 5 | 25 June 

The cult classic, Still Working 9 to 5 explores why workplace inequality is still no laughing matter. When the highest-grossing comedy, 9 to 5, starring Jane Fonda, Dolly Parton, Dabney Coleman and Lily Tomlin, exploded on screens in 1980, the laughs hid a serious message about inequality in the workplace. Still Working 9 to 5 explores what has and has not changed for women over the last 40 years.


Ithaka | 26 June 

Never has a story been more pignant and powerful than Julian Assange's father's fight for his son's freedom. Ithaka is the human story behind the headlines.
