London Film Festival | Drive In Film Club | Black History Month

London Film Festival

You know all those films you've been reading rave reviews about from festivals like Cannes and Venice, depressed in the knowledge you'll have to wait months to see them? Well, this is your chance. Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave, Palme d'Or winner Blue Is The Warmest Colour, the Coens' Inside Llewyn Davies and Jonathan Glazer's Under The Skin are some of the most talked-about titles coming London's way. To guide you through it, films are organised into themes, most of them imperative verbs – Love, Dare, Laugh, Thrill, Debate – though there's still a section of red-carpet galas. These include a double dose of Tom Hanks, in Paul Greengrass's Somali pirate thriller Captain Phillips (Odeon Leicester Square, WC2, Wed; Cineworld Haymarket, SW1, Thu), and Saving Mr Banks, in which he plays Walt Disney, schmoozing Emma Thompson over Mary Poppins.
