A story of romance set amid conflict. The plot is simple: A Secret Service Scotsman, James More (James McAvoy), meets a bio-mathematician, Danielle Flinders (Alicia Vikander), in Normandy as they prepare for a mission together. As all good scripts go, More is taken hostage by Jihadist fighters and Flinders begins her search for him. Movie opens on March 29.

Midnight Sun

Whether you are 17 or 70, you never forget your first love. As far as date movies go, Midnight Sun is one to watch. This tear-jerker centres around Katie (Bella Thorne), a teenager with a rare disease that forces her to stay out of the sun. Confined to her room during the day, she watches the goings-on in her neighbourhood through her window. Her subject of attention and affection is Charlie (Patrick Schwarzenegger) and she watches him from afar. To cut a long story short, and without giving away too much, they eventually meet and a romance blossoms against all odds. Movie opens on April 5.

The Evolution of Eian & Eien

Aiman’s second solo exhibition — The Evolution of Eian & Eien — is meant to challenge our perception of normalcy and how far we are willing to push boundaries. Inspiration for the work is drawn from fairytale narratives that include human emotions such as tenderness and cruelty, with references of religious iconography, eroticism and mythology.

Date: May 16 to Aug 15
Admission: Free
Venue: Art Porters Gallery, 64 Spottiswoode Park Road
Opening hours: Daily from 10.30am to 7pm (Monday by appointment only)
