Showing at the Isle of Bute Discovery Theatre in Rothesay from this Friday, January 22, are Ron Howard’s historical adventure In The Heart Of The Sea and the Oscar-nominated biographical drama Danish Girl.

In The Heart Of The Sea (12A), based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s 2000 novel of the same name, brings to the big screen the story of the sinking in 1820 of the US whaling ship Essex - the event that inspired Herman Melville to write Moby Dick.

Danish Girl, meanwhile, stars Eddie Redmayne as 1920s Copenhagen landscape painter Lili Elbe, one of the first known recipients of sex reassignment surgery, and Alicia Vikander as Elbe’s wife Gerda Wegener.
