Peter Mullan appears in Douglas Hart’s Long Distance Information as an aggressive father disturbed by a telephone call from an estranged son on Christmas Day. Judi Dench amusingly plays a romantically-inclined silver-surfer in Chris Foggin’s Friend Request Pending, in which she shows a grasp of social networking protocols that belies her age. And Romola Garai, star of The Hour, writes and directs Scrubber, about a young girl’s voyage of sexual discovery which begins unexpectedly when her babysitter doesn’t turn up.

Shining, The (15)

The Shining is a 1980 British-American psychological horror film produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick,[7] co-written with novelist Diane Johnson, and starring Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd, and Scatman Crothers. The film is based on Stephen King‘s 1977 novel The Shining.

The initial European release of The Shining was 25 minutes shorter than the American version, due to removal of most of the scenes taking place outside the environs of the hotel. Unlike Kubrick’s previous works, which developed audiences gradually through word-of-mouth, The Shining was released as a mass-market film, initially opening in two cities on Memorial Day, then nationwide a month later.[8] Although contemporary responses from critics were mixed, assessment became more favorable in following decades, and it is now widely regarded as one of the greatest horror films ever made. American director Martin Scorsese ranked it one of the 11 scariest horror movies of all time.[9] Critics, scholars, and crew members (such as Kubrick’s producer Jan Harlan) have discussed the film’s enormous influence on popular culture
