Films in the Stella Artois Summer Season at Rialto Cinemas include:

A Very Long Engagement

Five desperate men shoot themselves in order to escape from the horrifying frontline in World War One. As punishment, they are left to die in no man’s land, to be killed in cross-fire. One of these men’s fiancée suspects her man may have survived and embarks on a painful journey to discover the truth. Audrey Tautou (Amelie) stars in this moving love story set in France during World War One directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Amelie).

Sideways Miles, a failed writer, takes his mate Jack, former actor, on a week long drive to the wine country in California where they explore the nature of their failures and question their relationships. Jack (about to get married) has an affair, while Miles (recently divorced) questions whether or not he made the right choice. This is a hilarious and moving look at relationships, directed by Alexander Payne (About Schmidt and Election). To get a full line-up of the films on offer, go to the Rialto website on
