EDDIE THE EAGLE (PG) 106min
pInspired by true events this is a feel-good story about Michael “Eddie” Edwards, an unlikely but courageous British ski-jumper who never stopped believing in himself - even as an entire nation was counting him out. With the help of a rebellious and charismatic coach (played by Hugh Jackman), Eddie takes on the establishment and wins the hearts of sports fans around the world by making an improbable and historic showing at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. Taron Egerton stars as Eddie, the loveable underdog with a never say die attitude. Dir Dexter Fletcher, UK. May 20, 21, 23, 27, 28, 29, 30

 

LABYRINTH OF LIES (M) 122min
pGermany, 1958: nobody wants to look back to the time of the Nazi regime, so when young prosecuting attorney Johann Radmann comes across sensitive documents that would bring members of the SS who served in Auschwitz to trial, he is told to bury the past. He begins to examine the case and lands in a web of repression and denial, sucked deeper and deeper into a labyrinth of lies and guilt in his search for the truth. But what he ultimately brings to light will change the country forever. Based on the true events of the investigation that led to the Frankfurt Auschwitz trials. Dir Giulio Ricciarelli, Germany. English subtitles. May 27, 29, 30, June 3, 5, 6

 

FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS (PG) 110min
pThe true story of a much-loved New York heiress and socialite who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. Convinced of her own talent, the voice Florence heard in her head was beautiful, while to everyone else it was hilariously awful. Her husband, aristocratic actor St Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant), had protected his beloved from the truth for years. But when Florence decided to give a public concert at Carnegie Hall in 1944, St Clair knew it was only a matter of time before her beautiful dream would be shattered. Funny, moving and with a brilliant performance by Meryl Streep. Dir Stephen Frears, UK. June 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 12, 13, 17

A MONTH OF SUNDAYS (PG) 110min
pReal estate agent, Frank Mollard (Anthony LaPaglia), won’t admit it, but he can’t move on. Divorced but still attached, he can’t sell a house in a property boom - much less connect with his teenage son. One night Frank gets a phone call from his mother. Nothing out of the ordinary. Apart from the fact that she died a year ago. Starring LaPaglia, John Clarke, Julia Blake and Justine Clarke, this warm-hearted gem is about parents, children, regrets, mourning, moments of joy, houses, homes, love, work, television, Shakespeare and jazz fusion: about ordinary people and improbable salvation. Dir Matthew Saville, Australia.
June 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12

 

REMEMBER (MA 15+) 95min
pThe powerful story of Zev Guttman (Christopher Plummer), a 90-year-old struggling with memory loss and living in a serene retirement home. Shortly after the death of his wife, he receives a mysterious package from his close friend Max, containing a stack of money and a letter detailing a shocking plan. Both Zev and Max were prisoners in Auschwitz, and the sadistic guard who was responsible for the death of both their families escaped Germany and has been living in the U.S. ever since. The pair embark on a trip to bring justice to the man who destroyed their lives. Dir Atom Egoyan, Canada/Germany. June 10, 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19

 

RUSSIAN ARK (G) 99min
pAleksandr Sokurov’s spellbinding masterpiece is a multi-award winning film consisting of one unbroken camera shot that moves through St. Petersburg’s Hermitage Museum. It opened to critical acclaim upon its 2003 Australian release and was the highest grossing foreign language film of the year. It now returns to the big screen remastered in stunning 2K digital format. An opulent and extraordinary film which, like the museum itself, captures and shows three centuries of Russian culture and history in all its beauty, confusion, terror and majesty. Dir Aleksandr Sokurov, Russia. English subtitles. June 17, 19, 20, 24

Q & A SCREENING. See here for details.

SPEAR (M) 84min
pAcclaimed Artistic Director and Choreographer Stephen Page brings Bangarra Dance Theatre’s outstanding dance work to the screen. Striking and original, Page weaves story through dance to deliver an extraordinary cinematic experience. It follows a young Aboriginal man named Djali (Hunter Page-Lochard) from the outback to the streets of Sydney on his quest to understand what it means to be a man with ancient traditions in a modern world. Featuring brilliant Bangarra dancers and an evocative David Page score. One of the most affecting and spiritually resonant films of the year. Dir Stephen Page, Australia. June 18, 19, 20

 

HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE (PG) 101min
pA cross-country comedy adventure based on Barry Crump’s popular book. Ricky Baker (Julian Dennison) is a bad boy with a rap sheet almost as long as the list of foster homes he’s left in his wake. Sent deep into New Zealand’s picturesque countryside to live with Bella and her grumpy husband Hec (Sam Neill), Ricky soon finds the environment agrees with him. When unexpected circumstances strike, the reformed delinquent disappears into the wilderness to evade Child Services and the likelihood of spending the rest of his childhood in ‘juvie’. Refreshingly offbeat and entertaining! Dir Taika Waititi, New Zealand. June 24, 26, 27, July 1, 2, 3

 

THE MEDDLER (M) 103min
pSusan Sarandon, Rose Byrne and JK Simmons star in this late in life coming-of-age comedy. Marnie (Sarandon), an widow from New York City, follows her single TV producer daughter Lori (Byrne) to Los Angeles in hopes of starting a new life. Struggling to find a life of her own, Marnie cannot resist involving herself with Lori’s group of friends and buying their attention with offers of babysitting and generous gifts. When Lori’s work takes her out of town, Marnie is forced to reconsider her newfound relationships before meeting an eligible bachelor while high on more than just life. Dir Lorene Scafaria, USA. June 24, 26, 27, July 1, 2, 3

SCHOOL HOLIDAY FILM!

THE JUNGLE BOOK (PG) 106min
pBased on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories, this is a new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli, the man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. He embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera, and the free-spirited bear Baloo. Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart. Features the voices of Idris Elba, Ben Kingsley and Bill Murray. Dir Jon Favreau, USA. June 26, July 1, 3
