THERE’S a double bill at Ely Maltings cinema on Sunday, with an animated seasonal family pleaser in the afternoon, and a Dickens classic being shown in the evening.
Rise of the Guardians (PG) includes an engaging cast of oddballs, including the Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, who join forces against the evil Pitch. The film which starts at 3pm, features the voices of Hugh Jackman, Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Isla Fisher, and Jude Law.
For something completely different, the new film adaptation of Dickens’ classic novel Great Expectations (12A) hits the big screen at 7.30pm.
Scripted by David Nicholls and directed by Mike Newell the opening encounter takes place in the graveyard on the gloomy marshes between the convict Magwitch played by Ralph Fiennes and the young Pip, played by Jeremy Irvine. Helena Bonham Carter plays the jilted bride Miss Havisham.
In this heart rending fable, orphan Pip discovers he has a mystery benefactor. This fresh new version, which portrays the intertwined lives of two orphans, is both a love story and a thriller.
