A sprawling epic of family, faith, power and oil set on the incendiary frontier of California's turn-of-the-century petroleum boom. The story chronicles the life and times of one Daniel Plainview, who transforms himself from a down-and-out silver miner raising a son on his own into a self-made oil tycoon. When Plainview gets a mysterious tip-off that there's a little town out west where an ocean of oil is oozing out of the ground, he heads with his son, HW, to take their chances in dust-worn Little Boston. In this hardscrabble town, where the main excitement centres around the holy roller church of charismatic preacher Eli Sunday, Plainview and HW make their lucky strike. However, even as the well raises all of their fortunes, nothing will remain the same as conflicts escalate and every human value, from love, hope, community, belief, ambition and even the bond between father and son, is imperilled by corruption, deception and the flow of oil.

In this far from traditional romantic comedy, Charlize Theron stars as Mavis Gary who left her small town of Mercury, Minnesota after high school and moved on to Minneapolis. Here, she continued her success into adulthood by becoming an accomplished writer of a popular teen book series called 'Waverly Prep.' More and more, her own life begins to resemble that of her fictional teenage heroine as fantasy and reality intertwine, which is especially confusing since she is now in her 30s. In Mavis's books, there are clear winners and losers and the heroine always gets what she wants. This is really the Mavis Gary credo, which makes it even more troubling for her when her book series is cancelled. When she receives an email birth announcement from Beth Slade (Elizabeth Reaser), the wife of her high school sweetheart Buddy (Patrick Wilson), she snaps. This e-mail becomes the catalyst that drives Mavis to go to drastic lengths to reclaim the life she once knew. 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.

It's the summer of 1980 and Bjorn Borg is the top tennis player in the world, dominating the sport both on and off the court. A powerful and rigorously disciplined player, there is only one obstacle in his pursuit of a record-breaking fifth Wimbledon championship: the highly talented but ferociously abrasive young American, John McEnroe. With three days until the tournament begins, Borg trains religiously in his lavish Monaco home, aided by his coach and mentor Lennart and girlfriend Mariana. But McEnroe's explosive confidence and wrecking-ball persona continue to infiltrate Borg's ice-cool and normally unshakable temperament. With each man the antithesis of the other, both players delve into their formative memories as the climactic tournament draws near and anticipation reaches fever pitch.

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 >

Nominated for Best Film at the Australian Film Institute, adapted from F. Scott Fitzgerald classic novel. This film follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream; Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.

Set in pre-Beatles London, Jenny is a bright schoolgirl, torn between studying for Oxford and the rather more exciting alternative offered to her by a charismatic older man. 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?
