UK Cinema Releases: Friday 9th April 2010



Shelter (Icon): A psychological thriller about a doctor (Julianne Moore) specialising in multiple personality disorders who comes across a particularly troubling and potentially dangerous patient (Jonathan Rhys Meyers).

Directed by Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein, this arrives in the UK with zero buzz and – despite the presence of a genuinely great actress in Moore – seems likely to die quietly at the cinema before an afterlife on DVD and TV. [Nationwide / 15]

Whip It (Lionsgate UK): The directorial debut of Drew Barrymore stars stars Ellen Page as a teenager who throws in her small town beauty pageant crown for the world of roller derby.

Marcia Gay Harden plays Bliss’ disapproving mother, while Barrymore, Kristen Wiig and Juliette Lewis play roller-derby stars. The main challenge for this film is the US-centric subject matter but it could appeal to a female-skewing audience looking for something different. [Nationwide / 12A]


The Infidel (Revolver Entertainment): A comedy about a Muslim (Omid Djalili) who discovers he is actually Jewish, written by David Baddiel and directed by Josh Appignanesi. [Key Cities / 15]

I Am Love (Metrodome Distribution): Tilda Swinton stars in this Italian family drama directed by Luca Guadagnino, a Russian-born woman who has married into a wealthy Milan family. [Chelsea Cinema, Curzons Mayfair & Soho, Richmond / 15]

I Know You Know (Network Releasing): A drama about a young boy who suspects his dad (Robert Carlyle) might be working undercover for MI6 [Apollo Piccadilly Circus & Key Cities / 15]

No Greater Love (Soda Pictures) A documentary about a Carmelite convent in London, directed by Michael Whyte. [Gate Notting Hill & Key Cities]
