THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY (M) 96min
pIn this stylish Hitchcockian adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s Europe-set thriller, confident American tourist Chester (Viggo Mortensen) and his glamorous younger wife Colette (Kirsten Dunst) are holidaying in Athens during 1962. Encountering Greek-speaking American Rydal (Oscar Isacc) while sightseeing, the group decide to tour the city together. But an incident at the couple’s hotel puts all three in danger and creates a precarious interdependence between them. A tense and dangerous battle of wits between the two men leads them from Greece to Turkey, and to a dramatic finale played out in the back alleys of Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar. Dir Hossein Amini, UK/USA. Aug 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 10

 

THE LUNCHBOX (PG) 101min
-Irrfan Khan (Life Of Pi) gives a moving and thoroughly enjoyable performance as a cantankerous widower in Ritesh Batra’s multi award winning romance. Set in modern day Mumbai amongst the city’s famously efficient lunchbox delivery system, Saajan (Khan) accidentally receives a meal intended for the husband of the unhappily married Ila (Nimrat Kaur). Eventually discovering the delivery man’s accident, Saajan and Ila start to secretly correspond, noting observations of the busy world around them before their letters become more personal. Winner of 19 international awards, Batra’s film will warm your heart and build your appetite. Dir Ritesh Batra, India. English subtitles. Aug 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 10, 11

 

JERSEY BOYS (M) 130min
pFrom director Clint Eastwood comes the big-screen version of the Tony Award-winning musical. Four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey come together to form the iconic 1960s rock group The Four Seasons. Beginning in Belleville, New Jersey in 1951, it tells of the rise of star Frankie Valli, and the group’s trials and triumphs, accompanied by classic hits including ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry’ and ‘Walk Like a Man’. Eastwood once again confirms his versatile skills as a director. With a rousing finale, this is great, old-fashioned, entertainment. Dir Clint Eastwood, USA. Aug 8, 9, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, 28

 

AUSSIE RULES THE WORLD (E) 90min
pWhy would we keep the greatest game in the world a secret? Australia’s national game is under threat from all world sports and the AFL must find new ways to survive in this global market. Join AFL superstar Brett Kirk on an international mission to save the game. Narrated by David Wenham, this film uncovers people’s passion for footy in unexpected corners of the globe. Footy will never be the same! Dir Michael McIntyre, Australia. Aug 14, 17, 18

 

IDA (M) 82min
pAnna, an orphan raised in a convent, is preparing to take her vows when she’s sent to visit Wanda, her aunt and only living relative. A cynical, hard-drinking Communist Party judge, Wanda reveals that Anna’s real name is Ida and that her parents were Jews murdered during the Nazi occupation. They embark on an unusual journey to unearth their family’s dark history. Vibrant and intimate, Ida is a subtle portrait of two fascinating, contrasting women: the sheltered Ida, who is exploring her faith, and Wanda, who has no faith left. Dir Pawel Pawlikowski, Poland. English subtitles. Aug 15, 16, 17, 18, 24, 25

 

CHARLIE’S COUNTRY (M) 107min
p Rolf de Heer’s latest collaboration with David Gulpilil is a triumph; an honest yet uplifting depiction of modern Australian indigenous culture. Blackfella Charlie (Gulpilil) is getting older, and he’s out of sorts. The intervention is making life more difficult on his remote community, what with the proper policing of whitefella laws that don’t generally make much sense, and Charlie’s kith and kin seeming more interested in going along with things than doing anything about it. So Charlie takes off, to live the old way, but in doing so sets off a chain of events in his life that has him return to his community chastened, and somewhat the wiser. Dir Rolf de Heer, Australia. Aug 20, 22, 23, 24, 29, 30, 31, Sept 1

 

FADING GIGOLO (M) 90min
pJohn Turturro’s bold comedy tells the story of Murray (Woody Allen), a New York City book store owner who convinces his florist friend Fioravante (Turturro) that there’s a fortune to be made as a professional gigolo. Hilarity ensues as the the oddball duo tear up Gotham, with Fioravante (who now goes by Virgil) winning over eager clients the likes of legendary sexual icons Sharon Stone and Sofia Vergara, as well as Avigal (Vanessa Paradis), a sheltered and lonely orthodox Jewish widow. Funny, tender, and at its core a film about loneliness and the need for human connection. Dir John Turturro, USA. Aug 22, 23, 24, 25, 29, 31

 

CALVARY (MA) 100min
pFather James (Brendan Gleeson) is a good priest who is faced with sinister and troubling circumstances brought about by a mysterious member of his parish. As he continues to comfort his own fragile daughter (Kelly Reilly) and reach out to help members of his church with their various scurrilous moral, and often comic, problems, he feels sinister and troubling forces closing in. Beautifully shot on the west coast of Ireland, this is a brilliantly layered, darkly comedic drama about a good priest tormented by a cynical, spiteful community and a more philosophical reflection on faith. Dir John Michael McDonagh, Ireland. Aug 29, 31, Sept 1, 5, 7
