Like a low-pressure system sweeping in from the southeast, we’re gonna make it rain – movie tickets, that is.

We’ve got a plethora of double-passes to give away, for the Scandinavian Film Festival, 13 Minutes, Mr. Holmes and Far From Men.

The Scandinavian Film Festival – Wed 22 – Wed 29 July

After the stunning success of the debut Scandinavian Film Festival last year, the 2015 program showcases the most exciting dramas, comedies and thrillers from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland.

The second Scandinavian Film Festival opens with the comedy Here Is Harold (Her er Harold), a Norwegian road movie, about a man who sets out to kidnap the founder of Ikea.

The closing night film is Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words (Jag ar Ingrid), which arrives fresh from Cannes and sees Stig Bjorkman deliver a revelatory documentary on Bergman’s personal life. Through her diary entries, interviews with family members and never-before-seen private footage, this film provides a captivating look behind the scenes of the remarkable life of a young Swedish girl who becomes one of the most celebrated actors of American and World cinema.

13 Minutes – opens Thu 23 July

Georg Elser was a man who could have changed world history and saved millions of human lives, if only he had 13 more minutes.

With 13 more minutes, the bomb he had personally assembled would have torn apart Adolf Hitler and his henchmen. But this was not to be, leaving Elser to fail catastrophically. Who was this man who recognised the danger emanating from Hitler sooner than many others; who took action when everybody else kept silent?

Mr. Holmes – opens Thu 23 July

In 1947, Sherlock Holmes (Ian McKellen), long-retired, lives in a sleepy Sussex village with his housekeeper and her amateur-sleuthing son. But far from living out a peaceful retirement, he is haunted by an unsolved case from 50 years ago.

He remembers only fragments: a confrontation with an angry husband, a secret bond with his beautiful but unstable wife. With his legendary mental powers on the wane, and without his old sidekick Watson, Holmes is faced with the toughest case of his life – a case that might finally reveal to him the mysteries of the human heart.

Mr. Holmes is based on the novel A Slight Trick Of The Mind by Mitch Cullin.
