GIRL ASLEEP (M) 77min
pThe world is closing in on Greta Driscoll. On the cusp of turning fifteen she can’t bear to leave her childhood; it contains all the things that give her comfort in this incomprehensible new world. She floats in a bubble of loserdom with her only friend Elliott, until her parents throw her a surprise 15th birthday party and she’s flung into a parallel place; a world that’s weirdly erotic, a little bit violent and thoroughly ludicrous – only there can she find herself. Winner of the Age Critics Prize at MIFF 2016, this is a journey into the absurd, scary and beautiful heart of the teenage mind. Dir Rosemary Myers, Australia. Sept 30, October 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10

 

SUNSET SONG (M) 136min
pIn this sweeping romantic epic set in rural Scotland, Chris Guthrie is a young woman living on a working farm who must battle tradition, change and society’s expectations to forge her own voice. As World War One looms, and with moments of heartbreak and pain, celebration and joy, Chris stands strong, drawing from the ancient land in looking to the future. With stunning cinematography, a story based on Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s novel – widely considered the classic Scottish novel of the 20th century – and from acclaimed filmmaker, Terence Davies, this is a must-see. Dir Terence Davies, UK. Sept 30, October 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10

 

KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS (PG) 102 min
pKubo is living a relatively quiet, normal life in a Japanese seaside town when he accidentally summons a spirit from his past. He joins forces with Monkey (voiced by Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Matthew McConaughey) to save his family and solve the mystery of his fallen father, the greatest samurai warrior ever, battling gods and monsters – including the vengeful Moon King (Ralph Fiennes) and the evil twin Sisters (Rooney Mara) – to fulfill his destiny. An unforgettable family film. Dir Travis Knight, USA. Sept 30, October 1, 2

 

THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK - THE TOURING YEARS (M) 138min
pGo back to the height of The Beatles’ rise to fame in this lively and thorough documentary, made with the blessing and cooperation of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison. Focusing on the years 1962-1966, it explores The Beatles’ most active touring period and how they came together and navigated becoming a global phenomenon. The inner workings of the band are explored in detail on the journey from Liverpool’s Cavern Club to the Beatles’ last concert in San Francisco’s Candlestick Park. Filled with rare and exclusive footage, this is must-see viewing for all Beatles fans. Dir Ron Howard, USA/UK. October 7, 9, 15, 16

 

SULLY (M) 95min
pFrom master filmmaker Clint Eastwood comes the riveting true story of Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger (Tom Hanks), the commercial pilot who was responsible for what came to be known as the Miracle On The Hudson. Told from the point of view of the passengers, the control tower and the cabin of the US Airways passenger jet, Sullenberger becomes a media sensation after making an emergency landing on the Hudson River in 2009. Under enormous public scrutiny, Sullenberger comes to question his conduct under pressure as his employer seeks a scapegoat. Dir Clint Eastwood, USA. October 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23, 24

 

LIFE, ANIMATED (PG) 90min
pOwen Suskind is an autistic young man who could not speak for years as a child and yet slowly emerged from his isolation by immersing himself in Disney animated movies. The subject of his father Ron Suskind’s New York Times bestseller, Owen used these films as a roadmap to reconnect with his loving family and the wider world. This is an emotional coming-of-age story that shows the next stage of Owen’s journey as he takes his first steps towards independence. Dir Roger Ross Williams, USA. October 14, 17, 21, 23

 

CAPTAIN FANTASTIC (M) 119min
pDeep in the majestic wilds of the Pacific Northwest, Ben Cash (Viggo Mortensen) and his wife Leslie are raising their kids off the grid, isolated but with a homeschool education of survivalist skills, philosophy, multiple languages, and a distrust of the pillars of capitalist society. When a tragedy befalls the family, Ben and his children must not only venture out into the world, but also reach out to Leslie’s disapproving relatives. A powerful film that looks at unconventional families and what happens when a passionate but stubborn father has his children’s belief in him questioned. Dir Matt Ross, USA. October 14, 16, 17, 21, 22, 23, 24

 

SNOWDEN (M) 139min
pOliver Stone tackles the fascinating true story of the whistleblower who not only brought to light the incredible invasion of privacy being wrought upon individuals under the guise of The War On Terror, but also contributed to creating the very surveillance technology that he brought to light. Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley, it reveals the incredible personal story of Edward Snowden, a polarising figure who became one of the most wanted men in the world. Co-stars Melissa Leo, Tim Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans, Nicholas Cage and Timothy Olyphant. Dir Oliver Stone, USA. October 28, 29

HITCHCOCK / TRUFFAUT (PG) 80min
pIn 1962, Alfred Hitchcock and a 30-year-old François Truffaut sequestered themselves in a windowless Hollywood office for a weeklong conversation about mise-en-scène in cinema. Based on the original recordings of this meeting – used to produce the mythical book Hitchcock/ Truffaut – this film illustrates the greatest cinema lesson of all time and plummets us into the world of the creator of Psycho, The Birds and Vertigo. Hitchcock’s incredibly modern art is elucidated and explained by today’s leading filmmakers including Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Kiyoshi Kurosawa and more. Dir Kent Jones, France/USA. October 28, 29, 30

 

SHADOW OF A DOUBT (PG) 108min
pUncle Charlie (Joseph Cotten) visits his relatives in Santa Rosa. He is a very charming man, but his niece slowly realises that he is wanted for murder and he soon recognises her suspicions. Although one of the suspected murderers is killed and the case is considered closed, she still has her suspicions. Dir Alfred Hitchcock, USA. October 30, 31

 

VERTIGO (PG) 124min
pA romantic story of obsession, manipulation and fear. San Francisco detective Scottie Ferguson is forced to retire after his fear of heights causes the death of a fellow officer and the girl he was hired to follow. He sees a double of the girl, causing him to transform her image onto the dead girl’s body. This leads into a cycle of madness and lies. Stars James Stewart and Kim Novak. Dir Alfred Hitchcock, USA. October 30, 31
