L.A. Confidential
 
 
Based on the best-selling novel by James Ellroy, this award-winning crime drama explores corruption of the 1950's Los Angeles police force and the sleazy world of organized crime. Dudley Smith (James Cromwell) is the head of the LAPD, Bud White (Russell Crowe) is an aggressive, cynical detective. Ed Exley (Guy Pearce) is a detective who plays it strictly by-the-book and Jack Vincennes (Kevin Spacey) is a flashy "Hollywood" detective who receives kickbacks from Sid Hudgeons (Danny DeVito), publisher of a scandal magazine in exchange for information on celebrities. During a multiple murder investigation, they find themselves caught up in politcal corruption, violence and betrayal. Kim Basinger's performance earned her an academy award for Best Supporting Actress. Curtis Hanson cast Russell Crowe after seeing his performance in Romper Stomper. Studio execs were adamantly against the idea of casting two non-Americans (Crowe and Pearce) in an American period piece - both Pearce and Crowe are Australian. More Info >

"I was born under unusual circumstances." And so begins this film, adapted from the 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards: a man, like any of us, who is unable to stop time. Set in New Orleans, from the end of World War I in 1918 into the 21st century, we follow his journey that is as unusual as any man's life can be. This is a grand tale of a not-so-ordinary man and the people and places he discovers along the way, the loves he finds, the joys of life and the sadness of death, and what lasts beyond time.

Poised on the brink of womanhood, Jenny dreams of a Gauloises-scented existence as she sings along to Juliette Greco in her Twickenham bedroom. Stifled by the tedium of adolescent routine, Jenny can't wait for adult life to begin. Thirty-ish, witty, urbane David instantly unseats Jenny's stammering schoolboy admirer, Graham. To her frank amazement, he even manages to charm her conservative parents, Jack and Marjorie, and effortlessly overcomes any instinctive objections to their daughter's older suitor. Just as the family's long-held dream of getting their brilliant daughter into Oxford seem within reach, Jenny is tempted by another kind of life. Will David be the making of Jenny, or her undoing?

Ron, now shunned and ostracised by many of his old friends, and bereft of government-approved effective medicines, decided to take matters in his own hands, tracking down alternative treatments from all over the world by means both legal and illegal. Bypassing the establishment, the entrepreneurial Woodroof joined forces with an unlikely band of renegades and outcasts - who he once would have shunned - and established a hugely successful "buyers' club". Their shared struggle for dignity and acceptance is a uniquely American story of the transformative power of resilience. More Info >

A powerful story based on one family's survival of the 2004 tsunami. Maria, Henry and their three sons begin their winter vacation in Thailand, looking forward to a few days in tropical paradise, but on the morning of December 26, as the family relaxes around the pool after their Christmas festivities the night before, a terrifying roar rises up from the centre of the Earth. As Maria freezes in fear, a huge wall of black water races across the hotel grounds toward her. Based on a true story, this is the unforgettable account of a family caught, with tens of thousands of strangers, in the mayhem of one of the worst natural catastrophes of our time. However, the true-life terror is tempered by the unexpected displays of compassion, courage and simple kindness that Maria and her family encounter during the darkest hours of their lives.

L.A. Confidential
 
 
Based on the best-selling novel by James Ellroy, this award-winning crime drama explores corruption of the 1950's Los Angeles police force and the sleazy world of organized crime. Dudley Smith (James Cromwell) is the head of the LAPD, Bud White (Russell Crowe) is an aggressive, cynical detective. Ed Exley (Guy Pearce) is a detective who plays it strictly by-the-book and Jack Vincennes (Kevin Spacey) is a flashy "Hollywood" detective who receives kickbacks from Sid Hudgeons (Danny DeVito), publisher of a scandal magazine in exchange for information on celebrities. During a multiple murder investigation, they find themselves caught up in politcal corruption, violence and betrayal. Kim Basinger's performance earned her an academy award for Best Supporting Actress. Curtis Hanson cast Russell Crowe after seeing his performance in Romper Stomper. Studio execs were adamantly against the idea of casting two non-Americans (Crowe and Pearce) in an American period piece - both Pearce and Crowe are Australian. More Info >
