World-renowned film director Quentin Tarantino delivers his thirteenth movie – The Hateful Eight. Released in December 2015, Tarantino’s latest piece is a bullseye, receiving international praise from fans and critics alike.
Locked and loaded with his signature mix of action, humor and over-the-top violence, The Hateful Eight follows John ‘The Hangman’ Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive prisoner (Jennifer Jason Leigh) along a cold road towards the town of Red Rock in a post-civil war Wyoming.
Along the way the pair encounter another bounty hunter (Samuel Jackson) and a supposed sheriff. After taking shelter from a blizzard in a stagecoach stopover – meeting a further four strangers – the group find themselves wound up on a plot of betrayal and deception. Who will survive?
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio in his now infamous Oscar-winning role, The Revenant is a cold story of betrayal, grief and vengeance.
Set in the 1823, legendary ridge runner Hugh Glass (DiCaprio) is attacked by a vicious bear whilst exploring uncharted wilderness. His team leave him for dead, forcing Glass to draw on his survival skills to find his way back home to his family. But, thirsty for retribution, Glass finds himself on the hunt for John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy), the former confident who betrayed and abandoned him.

Watford Palace Theatre presents Frankenstein – a Hertfordshire County Youth Theatre production.
During a treacherous journey to the North Pole, a ship and its crew happen upon a stranger in the icy wastelands – one with an incredible tale to tell. Freezing and exhausted, he is in search of a creation to which he had once given life, but now must destroy.
Adapted by Helen Newall, this bold and captivating rendition of Mary Shelley’s classic tale sets Victor Frankenstein’s nightmarish tale against the turbulent backdrop of the author’s own life. The whole performance is set alight by HCYT – a talented group of young actors from across Hertfordshire.
Starring Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale and Steve Carell, this story is a biographical comedy-drama following four outsiders and their one big idea – The Big Short.
When the big banks, media and even the government refused to see the imminent collapse of the global economy, this bunch decided to cash in and short the economy. This bold strategy moves them into the dark underbelly of modern day banking, where everyone and everything must be questioned.
