Poor Things

A show stopping film from the Oscar winner line-up to Red Lorry Film Festival. From filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos and producer Emma Stone comes the incredible tale and fantastical evolution of Bella Baxter (Stone), a young woman brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter (Willem Dafoe). Under Baxter’s protection, Bella is eager to learn. Hungry for the worldliness she is lacking, Bella runs off with Duncan Wedderburn (Mark Ruffalo), a slick and debauched lawyer, on a whirlwind adventure across the continents. Free from the prejudices of her times, Bella grows steadfast in her purpose to stand for equality and liberation.

Cast: Emma Stone, Mark Ruffalo, Willem Dafoe, Ramy Youssef, Jerrod Carmichael, Christopher Abbott, Margaret Qualley

Civil War

Helmed by filmmaker Alex Garland comes a journey across a dystopian future America, following a team of military-embedded journalists as they race against time to reach DC before rebel factions descend upon the White House. Civil War moves in ways you wouldn’t believe a movie this little could: it has empathy for its main characters and a sly, cunning mind, but it also has a complete dedication to keeping the viewer entertained throughout. Red Lorry Film Festival brings you a must watch movie.

Cast: Kirsten Dunst, Wagner Moura, Stephen McKinley Henderson, and Cailee Spaeny


Sydney Sweeney doesn’t need an introduction the Gen Zs. Red Lorry Film Festival gives you an exclusive experience of Immaculate where the Euphoria star plays Cecilia, an American nun of devout faith, embarking on a new journey in a remote convent in the picturesque Italian countryside. Cecilia’s warm welcome quickly devolves into a nightmare as it becomes clear her new home harbours a sinister secret and unspeakable horrors. Though Immaculate has a significant shock factor at the end and some uncomfortable moments, the film feels a bit too familiar to really hold the attention of viewers.

Cast: Sydney Sweeney, Benedetta Porcaroli and Álvaro Morte

Perfect Days

The movie follows Hirayama is content with his simple life cleaning toilets in Tokyo. Outside of his structured routine he cherishes music on cassette tapes, books, and taking photos of trees. Unexpected encounters reveal more of his story in a deeply moving and poetic reflection on finding beauty in the world around us. Perfect Days is a perspective on the world that finds delight in the difficult, the simple, and all in between rather than painting a romanticised image of a fictitiously “perfect” world.

Cast: Koji Yakusho

Sidonie in Japan

Premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year The Red Lorry Film Festival brings Elise Girard’s romantic drama Sidonie In Japan stars Isabelle Huppert as a French writer mourning her husband’s death while on a book tour in Japan. As she travels with her local editor (Tsuyoshi Ihara) through Kyoto’s shrines, temples and cherry blossoms, she slowly opens up to him, but the ghost of her husband (August Diehl) follows. The funny, melancholy romance by Élise Girard mostly bypasses with elegance, good humour, and a sharp understanding of the constraints of its outsider perspective.

Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Tsuyoshi Ihara and August Diehl

Wicked Little Letters

A 1920s English seaside town bears witness to a dark and absurd scandal in this riotous mystery comedy. Based on a stranger than fiction true story, Wicked Little Letters follows two neighbours: deeply conservative local Edith Swan (Olivia Colman) and rowdy Irish migrant Rose Gooding (Jessie Buckley). When Edith and fellow residents begin to receive wicked letters full of unintentionally hilarious profanities, foul-mouthed Rose is charged with the crime. The anonymous letters prompt a national uproar, and a trial ensues. However, as the town’s women – led by Police Officer Gladys Moss (Anjana Vasan) – begin to investigate the crime themselves, they suspect that something is amiss, and Rose may not be the culprit after all. Wicked Little Letters is a fun comedy despite having a simple mystery at its centre, mostly because of a talented ensemble that embraces the funny aspects of the narrative.

Cast: Olivia Colman and Jessie Buckley

Nightwatch: Demons Are Forever

22-year-old medical student Emma (Fanny Leander Bornedal) has just taken a job as the night watch in the same forensic department where her parents were once almost killed by the famed psychopathic police inspector Wörmer. The events led to her mother’s suicide, and her father Martin (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) has turned to tranquilizers to suppress the memories. Determined to investigate what exactly happened to them, Emma tracks down and confronts Wörmer, only to unintentionally reawaken his bloodthirst and ignite a violent revenge on everyone who sealed his destiny years ago.

Cast: Fanny Bornedal and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau 

One Life

Based on the book If It’s Not Impossible…: The Life of Sir Nicholas Winton by Barbara Winton, One Life at The Red Lorry Film Festival tells the incredible, emotional true story of Nicholas ‘Nicky’ Winton (Johnny Flynn), a young London broker who visits Prague in December 1938. In a race against time, Winton convinces Trevor Chadwick (Alex Sharp) and Doreen Warriner (Romola Garai) of the British Committee for Refugees in Czechoslovakia to rescue hundreds of predominantly Jewish children before Nazi occupation closes the borders. Fifty years later, Nicky (Anthony Hopkins) is haunted by the fate of the children he wasn’t able to bring to safety in England. It’s not until the BBC show “That’s Life!” re-introduces him to some of those he helped rescue that he finally begins to come to terms with the guilt and grief he carried — all the while skyrocketing from anonymity to a national hero.

Cast: Anthony Hopkins, Johnny Flynn and Lena Olin
