TRIBUTE SCREENING

PURPLE RAIN (M) 110min
pThe Kid (Prince) is a Minneapolis musician on the rise with his band, the Revolution, escaping a tumultuous home life through music. While trying to avoid making the same mistakes as his father, the Kid navigates the club scene and a rocky relationship with singer, Apollonia. But another musician, Morris, looks to steal the Kid’s spotlight - and his girl. The film won an Academy Award for Best Original Song Score and features Let’s Go Crazy, When Doves Cry and, of course, Purple Rain. Dir Albert Magnoli, USA. May 21

 

THE DAUGHTER (M) 95min
pIn the last days of a dying logging town, Christian (Paul Schneider) returns after a long absence to his family home for his father Henry’s (Geoffrey Rush) wedding to a much younger woman. There he reconnects with his childhood friend Oliver. As Christian gets to know Oliver’s wife Charlotte (Miranda Otto), daughter Hedvig (newcomer Odessa Young), and father Walter (Sam Neill), he unearths a devastating secret that could tear Oliver’s family apart. A powerhouse cast at the height of their talents combined with a finely crafted, emotional script and assured direction, this is a must-see prestige Australian film. Dir Simon Stone, Australia. April 23, 24, 25, 29, 30, May 1

 

SON OF SAUL (M) 107min
pOctober 1944, Auschwitz-Birkenau. Saul Ausländer is a Hungarian member of a group of Jewish prisoners isolated from the camp and forced to assist the Nazis in large-scale extermination. While working in one of the crematoriums, Saul discovers the corpse of a boy he takes for his son. Saul decides to carry out an impossible task: save the child’s body from the flames, find a rabbi to recite the mourner’s Kaddish and offer the boy a proper burial. An extraordinary debut feature from Hungarian filmmaker László Nemes, this is devastatingly intimate cinema. Dir László Nemes, Hungary. Hungarian, Yiddish, German and Polish language, English subtitles. April 29, May 1, 2, 6, 7

 

EYE IN THE SKY (M) 102min
pHelen Mirren leads an all-star cast, including Aaron Paul and the late Alan Rickman, in a riveting new thriller. Spanning all corners of the globe, an international terrorist task force has tracked a wanted suspect to a Kenyan safehouse. Tasked with capturing the wanted man and his accomplice, a UK-based Colonel (Mirren) must navigate the difficulties of international politics, collateral damage and constantly changing circumstances to achieve her goal. This is a gripping account of modern warfare and how the battlefield has been replaced by politics, drones and the expendable nature of innocent lives. Dir John Crowley, UK/USA. April 29, 30, May 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 9

 

**ENCORES BY POPULAR DEMAND!**
THE LADY IN THE VAN (M) 104min

pPlaywright Alan Bennett once allowed a homeless elderly woman living in a van to park in his driveway. She was meant to be there for three weeks. She stayed for 15 years. This bizarre yet true tale is adapted from Bennett’s own award-winning stage production. The great Maggie Smith reprises her stage role as Mary Shepherd, the original, cantankerous (and slightly mad) woman who forced herself into Bennett’s life when her broken down old van appeared in his London street. A wryly funny and moving look at the joys and lows of letting a stranger in need set up camp in one’s life. Dir Nicholas Hytner, UK. May 6, 9, 13, 15

 

MARGUERITE (M) 129min
pIn 1921 near Paris, it’s party day at Marguerite Dumont’s castle. Nobody knows much about her except that she’s rich and that her whole life is devoted to her passion: music. Marguerite sings wholeheartedly, but terribly out of tune. She has been living her passion in her bubble, acting as if she was the diva she believes she is. When a young, provocative journalist decides to write a rave article on her latest performance, Marguerite starts to believe even further in her talent. Loosely inspired by the life of Florence Foster Jenkins. Dir Xavier Giannoli, France. English subtitles. May 13, 14, 15, 16, 20, 22, 23

 

RAMS (M) 92min
pMajestically shot in a spectacular, weather-swept valley in rural Iceland, this wryly observed fable about two brothers who are more obstinate than the sheep they breed begins as a droll comedy about rural life and grows into a graceful and mythic tale about family, community and legacy. A winner at Cannes, greeted with a thunderous 10 minute standing ovation at its premiere, it effortlessly balances humour and pathos to tell a tale that feels both intimate and epic, a loving portrait of both culture and family in a place where change doesn’t come easily. Dir Grímur Hákonarson, Iceland. English subtitles. May 13, 14, 15, 16, 20, 22

 

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

 

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. Starts June 3
