Featured films

Movie cover: A promise

A promise

A romantic drama set in Germany just before WWI, centered on a married woman who falls in love with her husband's protégé. Separated first by duties and then by the war, they pledge their devotion to one another.

Movie cover: Death of a gentleman

Death of a gentleman

Two cricket fans who became journalists, Old Etonian Sam Collins and larrikin Aussie Jarrod Kimber, from opposite ends of the social and geographic scale but united by their love of Test cricket, join forces to try to help save it. They embark on a journey across the cricketing empire to find the answer to the question ‘Who really cares about Test cricket?’

Movie cover: Where to invade next

Where to invade next

Academy Award®-winning director Michael Moore returns with what may be his most provocative, subversive and hilarious film yet. In WHERE TO INVADE NEXT Moore plays the role of ‘invader’, visiting a host of nations including Italy, France, Germany and Tunisia to commandeer policies and ideas that will improve prospects in America. What he finds is that the solutions to America’s most entrenched problems already exist in the world—they’re just waiting to be captured. The creator of Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine is back with an entertaining and eye-opening call to arms.

Movie cover: Putuparri and the Rainmakers

Putuparri and the Rainmakers

Putuparri and the Rainmakers is a universal story about the sacred relationship between people and place. It takes audiences on a rare and emotional journey to meet the traditional rainmakers of Australia's Great Sandy Desert who have fought a twenty-year battle to win back their traditional homeland.

Movie cover: Helen's war

Helen's war

Dr Helen Caldicott, firebrand anti-nuclear campaigner, celebrated author and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, is too alarmed to retire. Certain that the White House’s War on Terror is escalating the global nuclear arms race, she embarks on an explosive crusade across post 9/11 USA, armed with her fifth book, The New Nuclear Danger, and a furious determination to rally the American people against Star Wars and the new nuclear weapons labs before it is too late. Tagging along is Caldicott’s jaded niece, filmmaker Anna Broinowski, a post-punk fatalist who believes that nukes are inevitable and wonders whether a straight talking dissident like Helen really can make a difference in George W. Bush’s ‘Land of The Free’.

Movie cover: Weiner

Weiner

Anthony Weiner was a young congressman on the cusp of higher office when a sexting scandal forced a humiliating resignation. Just two years later, he ran for mayor of New York City, betting that his ideas would trump his indiscretions. He was wrong. With unprecedented access to Weiner, his family, and his campaign team, WEINER is a thrilling look inside a political comeback-turned-meltdown.

Movie cover: First Monday in May

The first Monday in May

THE FIRST MONDAY IN MAY follows Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour and Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton, as they orchestrate the year’s most lavish party and The Met’s most attended fashion exhibition in history, ‘China: Through The Looking Glass’. With unprecedented access, filmmaker Andrew Rossi offers an exclusive all-access pass to the creation of the exhibition that explores China’s substantial influence on Western fashion.
