WOMEN HE’S UNDRESSED (PG) 99min
pOrry-Kelly was Golden Age Hollywood’s most celebrated costume designer, responsible for the costumes of films as iconic as Some Like It Hot and Casablanca. And he was born in Kiama, New South Wales. Gillian Armstrong tells the tale of one of Australia’s forgotten sons; outrageous, witty, a drinker, and uncompromising of his sexuality. From costuming glamorous actresses, to a scandalous secret affair with a hugely famous and iconic actor, this is a story sure to fascinate, shock and illuminate. Dir Gillian Armstrong, Australia. July 24, 25, 26, 27, August 2, 3

 

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD (M) 118min
pBased on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, this is the story of independent, headstrong Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), who attracts three dissimilar suitors in Victorian England: Gabriel Oak, a sheep farmer; Frank Troy, a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood, a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story explores the nature of relationships and love, and the ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance. An unabashed crowd-pleaser. Dir Thomas Vinterberg, UK. July 31, August 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 10

 

WILD TALES (MA) 122min
pOne of the most buzzed about films at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, Argentinean director Damián Szifrón’s tale is a blackly comic anthology film. Six short films loop together under an arcing themed banner of vengeance. Each story in this hilarious compendium is a cathartic exploration of the pressures of the modern day world, and together make for an experience unparalleled in sheer entertainment value. Wickedly hilarious and delightfully deranged. Dir Damián Szifrón, Argentina. English subtitles. July 31, August 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9

 

MADAME BOVARY (M) 118min
pAdapted from Flaubert’s classic novel set in Normandy, France. Madame Bovary tells the tragic story of Emma, a young beauty who impulsively marries a small-town doctor to leave her father’s pig farm behind. But after being introduced to the glamorous world of high society, she soon becomes bored with her stodgy mate and seeks excitement and status outside the bonds of marriage. This sumptuous period drama features a superb cast including Mia Wasikowska and Paul Giamatti. Flaubert’s classic novel comes to life. Dir Sophie Barthes, USA/France. August 7, 9, 10, 14, 16, 17

Encores: by popular demand!

WOMAN IN GOLD (M) 109 min
pThe incredible true story of Maria Altmann (Helen Mirren), a Jewish refugee who is forced to flee Vienna during World War II. Decades later, determined to salvage some dignity from her past, Maria has taken on a mission to reclaim a painting the Nazis stole from her family: the famous Lady In Gold, a portrait of her beloved Aunt Adele painted by Gustav Klimt. The only problem is the portrait in now the crown jewel in one of Vienna’s most respected galleries and is considered an Austrian national treasure. Partnering with an inexperienced but determined young lawyer, Maria embarks on an epic journey for justice 60 years in the making. Dir Simon Curtis, USA/UK. August 14 & 17

Select sessions w/ pre-recorded Q&A: see below

AMY (MA 15+) 128min
pFrom the team behind acclaimed documentary Senna comes a moving portrait of one of Britain’s great music icons. Amy Winehouse was a rare musical talent whose appeal crossed cultural and demographic boundaries. But while her music made her a star, her chaotic personal life stole headlines. With rare interviews and never-before-seen archival footage, Amy takes us behind the sensationalised headlines to reveal a prodigiously talented woman whose life ended too soon. Dir Asif Kapadia, UK. Aug 23*, 24, 28*, 30
*Select sessions followed by a pre-recorded Q&A (38 min) with director Asif Kapadia, producer James Gay-Rees, Winehouse’s first manager Nick Shymansky, & featuring interview clips with Jools Holland, Mark Ronson and Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), following 10 minute interval

 

RUBEN GUTHRIE (MA 15+) 93min
pLife is good for ad man Ruben Guthrie (Patrick Brammall) who’s at the top of his game until some drunken skylarking lands Ruben at the bottom of his infinity pool, lucky to be alive. His mum hits the panic button, and his fiancée leaves him, issuing him one final challenge: If Ruben can go one year without a drink, she’ll give him another chance. Co-starring Jack Thompson and Alex Dimitriades and directed by Brendan Cowell, this is the story of one man not only battling the bottle, but the city that won’t let him put it down. Dir Brendan Cowell, Australia. August 21, 23, 24, 28, 29, 30, 31

 

MR. HOLMES (M) 104min
pIn 1947, Sherlock Holmes (Ian McKellen), long-retired, lives in a sleepy Sussex village with his housekeeper and her amateursleuthing son. But he is haunted by an unsolved case from fifty years ago. He remembers only fragments: a confrontation with an angry husband, a secret bond with his beautiful but unstable wife. With his legendary mental powers on the wane, and without his old sidekick Watson, Holmes is faced with the toughest case of his life - a case that might finally reveal to him the mysteries of the human heart. Dir Bill Condon, UK. August 28, 29, 30, 31

 

LAST CAB TO DARWIN (M) 124min
pCab driver Rex (Michael Caton) is a loner, and has never left his home town of Broken Hill. When told he doesn’t have long to live, he embarks on an epic drive through the Australian outback to Darwin in a bid to die on his own terms. On his journey of self-discovery, he realises that before you can end your life, you have to live it, and to live it, you’ve got to share it. Based on a true story, also starring Jackie Weaver, and with supporting performances from Emma Hamilton and Ningali Lawford-Wolf, this is a moving and good-humoured drive. Dir Jeremy Sims, Australia. Starts September 4
