THE GRINCH

The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous holiday spirit.

‘Custody’ at No. 6 Cinema

“Nothing here is black and white,” says a lawyer at the onset of this riveting French drama, a portrait of an acrimonious custody battle viewed from the perspective of the 12-year-old boy caught in the middle.

‘Ghost Stories’ at No. 6 Cinema

Phillip Goodman — professor of psychology, arch-skeptic, the one-man ‘belief buster’ — has his rationality tested to the hilt when he receives a letter apparently from beyond the grave. His mentor Charles Cameron, the ‘original’ TV parapsychologist went missing fifteen years before, presumed dead and yet now he writes to Goodman saying that the pair must meet. Cameron, it seems, is still very much alive.
