The Monuments Men
M 2hr 4min Digital Sound
George Clooney, Cate Blanchett. Based on real events. An unlikely World War II platoon are tasked to rescue art masterpieces from Nazi thieves and return them to their owners.
Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, the film is an action drama focusing on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys - seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 - possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievements.

All Is Lost
M 1hr 51min Digital Sound
After a collision with a shipping container at sea, a resourceful sailor (Robert Redford) finds himself, despite all efforts to the contrary, staring his mortality in the face.
Academy Award® winner Robert Redford stars in All Is Lost, an open-water thriller about one man’s battle for survival against the elements after his sailboat is destroyed at sea. Written and directed by Academy Award® nominee J.C. Chandor (Margin Call) with a musical score by Alex Ebert (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros), the film is a gripping,visceral and powerfully moving tribute to ingenuity and resilience.
Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man (Redford) wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm. Despite his success in patching the breached hull, his mariner’s intuition and a strength that belies his age, the man barely survives the tempest. Using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of hailing a passing vessel. But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling and his meager supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face.

Wadjda

An enterprising Saudi girl signs on for her school's Koran recitation competition as a way to raise the remaining funds she needs in order to buy the green bicycle that has captured her interest.

Wadjda is a 10-year-old girl living in a suburb of Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. Although she lives in a conservative world, Wadjda is fun loving, entrepreneurial and always pushing the boundaries of what she can get away with. After a fight with her friend Abdullah, a neighborhood boy she shouldn't be playing with, Wadjda sees a beautiful green bicycle for sale. She wants the bicycle desperately so that she can beat Abdullah in a race. But Wadjda's mother won't allow it, fearing repercussions from a society that sees bicycles as dangerous to a girl's virtue. So Wadjda decides to try and raise the money herself. At first, Wadjda's mother is too preoccupied with convincing her husband not to take a second wife to realize what's going on. And soon enough Wadjda's plans are thwarted when she is caught running various schemes at school. Just as she is losing hope of raising enough money, she hears of a cash prize for a Koran recitation competition at her school. She devotes herself to the memorization and recitation of Koranic verses, and her teachers begin to see Wadjda as a model pious girl. The competition isn't going to be easy, especially for a troublemaker like Wadjda, but she refuses to give in. She is determined to continue fighting for her dreams...

Mr Morgans Last Love
M 1hr 56min Digital Sound
Michael Caine. A look at the life-changing connection between a retired and widowed American philosophy professor and a young Parisian woman.
Mature themes & infrequent coarse language.

Mr. Morgan’s Last Love is the bittersweet tale of a lonely American widower in Paris who learns to love life again after a chance encounter with a beautiful and vibrant young woman. They both spend a short but precious time together – a time that touches their hearts and changes their lives.

From the day Pauline lends him a helping hand on the bus, the stubborn, weary Matthew Morgan stumbles back to happiness. Swept off his old feet by the young woman’s disarming vitality and unwavering optimism, the quiet teacher becomes an unlikely student of living. In their everyday adventures of walks through Paris, lunches in the park, and trips to the country, the odd couple explores the treasures of friendship, the comfort of companionship, the taste of romance – and the meaning of family. Through their mutual restoration of faith in people who care, Pauline embraces the idea of a new kind of family while Matthew finally reconnects with his estranged son Miles, who in turn finds himself deeply affected by the changes in his father. What begins as Miles’ and his sister Karen’s frustrated attempt to bring Matthew home to the US, leads to consequences in Miles’ own life that he never expected. Just in time, father and son learn to respect each other again, to let go of the past and let in the future – and in their life lessons, they each in their own way find love and hope again.

The Man From Cox's River
G 1hr 27min Digital Sound
Luke Carlon grew up taking tourists on horse trips along the Cox's River, a place his family has ridden since the 1820s. All that changed nearly 20 years ago when the river was declared a wilderness area, the business closed and Luke's father died. After a long history of difficult relations between the National Parks and the Carlons, National Parks Ranger Chris Banffy has a problem he thinks Luke might be able to solve. A wiley mob of brumbies inhabit the Burragorang Valley, a water catchment area sealed off for over 50 years. Classed as feral pests, Chris needs to remove the horses from Sydney's water supply without any of the outcry that has marred some previous control operations using shooters in helicopters. The only access to the trap-yards is either by helicopter or horseback. If Luke takes the job, he will have to find the horses, get them in the trap, and he'll have to break them in enough to lead them a bone crunching 5 km up to another set of yards with truck access.
