Stuntwomen, Eurovision, gorgeous Islamic architecture... here's our round-up of why you should be excited about this month's cinema programme.
1. Women kicking ass
Polite Society, the new epic action comedy by Nida Manzoor, tells the story of a martial arts obsessed young girl whose life goal is to become a stuntwoman - and save her sister from marrying the wrong man.
This is a funny, action-packed coming-of-age story with a unique character at its core and groundbreakingly positive representation of South Asian (kick-ass!) female characters on screen. This featurette breaks down some of the movie's brilliant fight scenes...
2. Religious conspiracy + gorgeous Islamic architecture
Following The Nile Hilton Incident (Inverness Film Festival 2017), Swedish-Egyptian filmmaker Tariq Saleh is back with a new gripping political thriller set in Egypt, Cairo Conspiracy starring the brilliant Fares Fares.
Trivia: although set in Cairo, the film was actually shot in Istanbul due to Saleh's exile from Egypt as a result of his criticism of the country's corrupt political system.
A superbly realised paranoid nightmare
3. Eurovision watch party!
We're getting ready for a Eurovision watch party on the big screen and so should you. And yes, it does come with Euro-themed cocktails and snacks.
4. A truly epic adaptation of The Three Musketeers
Comes with Eva Green, Vincent Cassel and beautiful feathery hats.
5. Step into the unknown
Eden Court's infamous monthly Mystery Movie could be the best movie you've never seen.
Eden Court Cinema programmer Paul MacDonald-Taylor tracks all past mystery movies on a Twitter thread, so one thing is for sure - you know what it's definitely not going to be.
