"This one is extremely special to me, because I wrote it when I was in a place of understanding," VINCINT says of his new video, Someday. "Understanding that love doesn't always mean a happy-ever-after, sometimes it just isn't the right time, and that has to be okay! But in the back of my mind there's that little voice that lets you know you're gonna be good, whispering 'maybe someday though.'"

A teenage Scarface meets Romeo and Juliet, in Claudio Giovannesi’s gripping depiction of young gangsters running amok in Naples.


Nicola is a teenage kid and would-be Paranza (Piranha), groomed to be a foot soldier on the streets of Naples for Camorra mob bosses. However, Nicola is more ambitious than most, if not all, of his contemporaries. Resembling an underage Scarface, he quickly rises through the ranks with a combination of raw charm, assertiveness, audacity and a capacity for cold-blooded violence.


Adapted from the 2016 novel by Gomorrah author Roberto Saviano, which draws on real life events, Piranhas is the impressive third feature by Claudio Giovannesi (Ali Blue Eyes, Fiore). It’s atmospherically captured by Daniele Ciprì’s crisp cinematography and features impressively convincing performances, particularly by lead actor Francesco Di Napoli. BFI

Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Even her dreams of love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.”
