opening night of the 58th BFI London Film Festival and with nearly 250 films showing at this year’s event even you can expect more

star turns, breath taking performances and red carpet glitz and glamour than ever before.

Keith Iddins, Head of Entertainment for The May Fair, official partner of the festival, is the hotel’s resident film expert with his finger on the pulse when it comes to which films industry insiders say are the ones to watch. Using his own expert film knowledge and industry know-how Keith’s picked his five must-see movies from this year’s festival:


The Imitation Game opened the London Film Festival last night and from the moment I first saw the trailer I was hooked. It has everything you want from a British Blockbuster including top UK talent, in the form of Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley, plus it’s a true story based on the British code-breaking legend Alan Turing.

Another based on real events, Foxcatcher is the story of an Olympic wrestler, his relationship with his brother, and his sponsor John du Pont. An excellent thriller with a career-defining performance by Steve Carrell, opposite Channing Tatum, Foxcatcher delves into the inner workings of the Du Pont family and is a must see at this year’s festival.



This year’s London Film Festival May Fair Hotel Gala screening, Wild, takes place on Monday. The film sees Reese Witherspoon in a grittier role than the characters we’re used to seeing her play and the story is an emotional rollercoaster that is already tipped to win big at next year’s Oscars.



Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence are reunited once more in the beautifully shot Serena. With the chemistry between the pair again electric, it will be interesting to see if Serena is as successful as the duo’s previous collaborations Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle.



Jason Reitman can do no wrong in my eyes. In fact, Juno and Up in the Air are two of my favourite films. This film follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways modern technology is changing their lives. Reitman movies are real, poignant and always carry a surprise. This one looks to be no different.


Tickets to these screenings, as well as trailers and more information are available from the BFI website. Once you’ve decided which film to watch – and you really are spoilt for choice this year – remember to join us in the May Fair Bar for a post-film cocktail or two. Or perhaps forego the popcorn and enjoy a fantastic meal at May Fair Kitchen!
