Some people will go to any length to be young forever. Hollywood socialites Madeline Ashton (Meryl Streep) and Helen Sharp (Goldie Hawn) are lifelong rivals, competing for men, fame, and beauty. When Helen appears to have the final upper hand, Madeline will stop at nothing to change that – paying the ultimate price to do so. This wickedly funny cult classic was a massive flop on its 1992 release, but 25 years after fizzling out in theaters, this delightfully macabre, campy, charismatic comedy has solidified its standing in the 90’s film repertoire and has established itself as a queer cult classic.

For the first time in history the Royal Academy of Arts in London, in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, is bringing together Lucian Freud’s self-portraits.

The exhibition will display more than 50 paintings, prints and drawings in which this modern master of British art turned his unflinching eye firmly on himself. One of the most celebrated painters of our time, Lucian Freud is also one of very few 20th-century artists who portrayed themselves with such consistency.

Spanning nearly seven decades his self-portraits give a fascinating insight into both his psyche and his development as a painter, from his earliest portrait painted in 1939 to the final one executed 64 years later. When seen together, his portraits represent an engrossing study into the dynamic of ageing and the process of self-representation.

Phil Grabsky’s biographical account of the life of Haydn is a visual and aural extravaganza including breath-taking performances by some of the world’s most celebrated and contemporary musicians.

Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) was one of the greatest musical innovators. Mozart and Beethoven greatly looked up to him as an inspiration and yet today in concert halls he is perhaps too often overshadowed in favour of his younger contemporaries.By speaking to some of the greatest living exponents of Haydn’s music, this film redresses the balance and sheds light on the master and his work. Phil Grabsky hopes that Haydn will reach a wider audience who will be surprised, entertained and enthralled by Haydn’s wit, humanity and insatiable creativity.
