Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, Tonya is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history.

Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan.

Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden, and an original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespie's I, Tonya is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding's life and career in all of its unchecked and checkered glory.

The Shape of Water finds Guillermo del Toro at his visually distinctive best - and matched by an emotionally absorbing story brought to life by a stellar Sally Hawkins performance.

Her life changes forever when she discovers the lab's classified secret - a mysterious, scaled creature from South America that lives in a water tank. As Elisa develops a unique bond with her new friend, she soon learns that its fate and very survival lies in the hands of a hostile government agent and a marine biologist.


Being labeled as Del Toro's best work to date. This is a charming love letter to the cinema of the old and the inescapable power of love.

Screening at The Odyssey in preparation for the Arena's stage performance in early May - which stars two of The Odyssey's fabulous staff members! - come for what is set to be a fantastic evening.
Make sure to get your seats on time for a very special pre-film introduction!

This Aussie comedy features three actors best known for uber-masculine roles – Terence Stamp, Hugo Weaving and Guy Pearce – as drag queens on a journey across the Australian outback.

Stamp plays a grieving trans woman, Weaving a gay man hoping to connect with his son after years apart, and Pearce as an overconfident and often obnoxious upstart. Their journey is soundtracked by Abba, and the script is packed with quotable oneliners.


Despite its political incorrectness and bawdiness of spirit, the film’s confrontation of homophobia is powerfully handled, from Pearce’s character narrowly avoiding being beaten up to his fitting response to some anti-gay graffiti, which he simply paints bright pink.

The amazing costumes won an Oscar, and the film spawned a successful stage musical.

Joaquin Phoenix bares his soul in Lynne Ramsay’s noir-tinged New York thriller.

The source is Jonathan Ames’s novella about an ex-marine and ex-FBI agent who is radicalised by the brutality he has witnessed into the vigilante work of rescuing young girls from the sex trade. Ramsay’s film simmers a plot-driven narrative down to become the essence of a human soul under a particular type of strain.


He is one of God’s lonely men. Cinematic relatives include Dirty Harry and Travis Bickle. Like the latter, he patrols a nighttime New York populated by those likely to cause harm. Phoenix’s piercing eyes and cauliflower nose identify the actor within a body otherwise engulfed by his role.

It all adds up to an overwhelming experience, a slice of pure cinema from a director who refuses to dance to the beat of anyone’s drum but her own. From the disorienting opening to the enigmatic finale, Lynne Ramsay is always really here, her commanding vision shining through every frame.

Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keeps his world running.


Set in the glamour of 1950’s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutantes and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock.


Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love.

Sensuous, evocative and completely entrancing, if the end result was a garment, you wouldn't want to take it off.

After Daniel Day-Lewis confirmed this will be his last acting role, Hollywood are speculating what he'll do next. Since the actor took a five-year break in the 90's to work as a cobbler in San Frediano the Italian shoe factory, perhaps his next move could be working as a haute couture dressmaker!

The lives of AIDS activists in early 90s Paris are reimagined in bold and vivid detail in 120 BPM, a stunning and heart-wrenching drama from the writer of Palme d’Or winner The Class, Robin Campillo.

Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes 2017 and a host of international awards, this is an essential work of cinema with a profoundly moving and delicately crafted love story at its heart. As the AIDS epidemic tears through their community, the members of ACT UP Paris are fighting for survival.

While they battle against governmental apathy, pharmaceutical greed and public ignorance, they also go out partying, debate politics and, occasionally, fall in love. One day, as outspoken radical Sean (Nahuel Pérez Biscayart) strikes up a conversation with shy newcomer Nathan (Arnaud Valois), they have no idea that their lives are about to change forever.

Based on the director’s own experiences, this vibrant and deeply emotional drama rushes with youthful energy, balancing powerful themes of social justice with euphoric moments of spine-tingling sensuality.

Urgent and affecting, it’s a film about life, death, passion, tragedy – and, above all, the will to survive.

After the passing of Stephen Hawking in March this year, The Odyssey is proud to celebrate one of the most extraordinary lives in human history with a showing of his biopic, The Theory of Everything.


Starring Eddie Redmayne as Hawking, in a powerhouse performance which won him the Academy Award for Best Actor. The film goes straight to Hawking’s days at Cambridge University — our only complaint of the film is this means it misses his time at school in St Albans! But once us St Albans natives get over that, it’s an enchanting piece from start to finish.


Brimming with confidence in his studies of cosmology, and a blossoming romance with fellow student Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones), the film examines his brief downfall as his muscles begin to fail. It’s no spoiler to say that Mr Hawking overcame his motor neurone disease diagnosis in spectacular fashion, and the way in which director James Marsh portrays this will only fill you with inspiration.


"Redmayne towers: this is an astonishing, genuinely visceral performance.” (The Guardian)


The Odyssey is very pleased to invite local charity MNDA South Herts www.mndasouthherts.org/ to help introduce the film and raise awareness about this disease. There will also be a collection on the night to help fundraise to support the work they do.
Come along and celebrate a great mind, and our local schools!

A striking psychological thriller set on Jersey with compelling lead performances from Jessie Buckley and Johnny Flynn.


Written and directed by Michael Pearce, Beast sees damaged soul Moll (Jessie Buckley) irresistibly drawn to the equally tortured Pascal (Johnny Flynn) from the moment she first encounters him after wandering away from her own birthday celebrations. A local poacher, Pascal is also a suspect in a string of murders that have been carried out across Jersey.


On edge and desperate for someone to pay for the murderous crimes, the island’s inhabitants turn their attentions to the couple and their new-found love.

Garnering rave reviews after its recent premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, Beast at times recalls the films of Lynne Ramsay, Jane Campion and Andrea Arnold.

It is certainly a highly impressive debut that makes for intoxicating viewing and satisfyingly bends the conventions of the thriller.

After witnessing a Mafia murder, slick saxophone player Joe (Tony Curtis) and his long-suffering buddy, Jerry (Jack Lemmon), improvise a quick plan to escape from Chicago with their lives. Disguising themselves as women, they join an all-female jazz band and hop a train bound for sunny Florida.


Their cover is perfect... until a love lorn singer (Marilyn Monroe) falls for Josephine, an ancient playboy (Joe E. Brown) falls for Daphne, and a mob boss (George Raft) refuses to fall for their hoax!

Some Like It Hot is the quintessential madcap farce and one of the greatest of all film comedies. Both the gangster story and the screwball antics hark back to Hollywood films of the 1930s, but Wilder’s outrageous and subversive play with gender was truly boundary pushing and helped lead to a loosening of censorship after United Arists released the film without certification.


“It possesses a quality found in the best comedies – a sense of humanity and an attitude of compassion for the lunatics who play the fool for our sake.”

A runaway couple go on an unforgettable journey in the faithful old RV they call ‘The Leisure Seeker’, recapturing their passion for life and their love for each other.


Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland star as the runaway couple going on an unforgettable journey from Boston to The Ernest Hemingway Home in Key West, Florida. They go together like matching furniture, their moods and habits perfectly shaped by each other’s.


Even their ailments are complementary, one suffering in body and the other in mind: Mirren’s character, Ella, is facing cancer, while Sutherland’s, John, is losing his memory and his certainty about who he’s speaking to and what year it is.

Along their road trip, the couple have a run in with the police, cross beautiful vistas, have a showdown with some thugs, and recapture their love for each other.

Living an isolated farmhouse in Upper State New York, a family must navigate a post-apocalyptic world without making a single sound. Either that, or risk being shredded alive. In the shadows lurk spider-like creatures that hunt by sound rather than sight, and which are lying in wait for their next victim.

For devoted mother and father (John Krasinski and Emily Blunt), son Marcus (Noah Jupe) and partially deaf daughter Regan (Millicent Simmonds), life turns into a deadly game of hide-and-seek.

The family must walk barefoot, communicate in sign language – which they understand because of Regan’s hearing difficulties – and stifle their every breath to avoid making a noise.

Staying alive means forever staying one-tiptoed-step ahead.
