Maps to the Stars (BR)

From acclaimed director David Cronenberg comes a twisted tale of the dark secrets that lurk behind the closed doors of a celebrity obsessed Hollywood dynasty. Dr Stafford Weiss (John Cusack) made his fortune writing self-help books, but life with his overbearing wife Cristina (Olivia Williams) and thirteen-year old son, Benjie (Evan Bird), a child star fresh out of rehab, is anything but idyllic. When their estranged daughter Agatha (Mia Wasikowska) is released from a psychiatric hospital, she’s determined to make it in Hollywood and befriends a wannabe actor/writer limo driver (Robert Pattinson) and becomes PA to the neurotic actress Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore). Before long, the lives of each member of the family begin to take a darker turn as the ghosts from their past return to haunt them.

Song One

A young woman strikes up a relationship with her ailing brother’s favorite musician. Stars Anne Hathaway.

The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden

Darwin meets Hitchcock in this true-crime tale of paradise found and lost. The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came To Eden is a fascinating documentary portrait of a 1930s murder mystery as strange and alluring as the famous archipelago itself. Fleeing conventional society, a Berlin doctor and his lover start a new life on the uninhabited Floreana Island. But after the international press sensationalises the exploits of the Galapagos’ “Adam and Eve”, others flock there—including a self-styled Swiss Family Robinson and a gun-toting Viennese Baroness and her two lovers. Things would never be the same.

Young and Beautiful

Nuanced, elegant and thought-provoking, the latest film from renowned French director François Ozon is a coming-of-age portrait set over four seasons and four songs. YOUNG & BEAUTIFUL chronicles seventeen-year-old Isabelle’s sexual journey from the awakening of her desires to her first time, from her exploration of love to her search for her identity.

The Love Punch

Kate (Emma Thompson) and Richard (Pierce Brosnan) are a divorced couple content to live their lives far apart as long as their retirement is comfortable. But when a sleazy French businessman, Vincent, bankrupts their company, they’re ready to put aside their differences and get their money back. Trouble is, there’s no legal way to retrieve the funds, and when Vincent literally throws them out of his office, they vow revenge. With the help of their obliging neighbours, Jerry (Timothy Spall) and Penelope (Celia Imrie), they hatch a madcap plot to steal a $10 million diamond the crooked Vincent has bought for his gorgeous fiancée. All they have to do is crash a wedding on an isolated island, sneak past armed security, and smuggle the diamond out without getting caught… if it works, it will be the ultimate payback.

Entertainment One DVD Extravaganza Giveaway | What If? | Movie Poster Image


Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe) and Chantry (Zoe Kazan) meet at a party while reading refrigerator magnet poetry and find that they have great chemistry….as friends. They form a relationship in which they talk about everything from movies to illnesses to disappointing Christmas presents.  It’s heavy interest at first sight but there is a problem—Chantry has a serious boyfriend.

Wallace falls hard for Chantry and Chantry must deal with her growing feelings for Wallace. Should friendship be squashed due to budding romantic influences or can they control their desire to simply enjoy the benefits of a platonic relationship.

Told through their many meetings over the course of a year and interwoven with both Wallace and Chantry’s hyperactive imagination, the film hilariously demonstrates the complications of timing.  All of their insecurities, regrets and victories are exposed.


It’s a sweltering summer before the final year of school. Best friends Billie (Ashleigh Cummings from Tomorrow When the War Began and hit TV show Puberty Blues) and Laura (Lily Sullivan who wowed audiences in Mental) share every secret, except one – Billie is crazy in love and sleeping with Laura’s boyfriend Danny. When Billie’s social worker mum takes in Isaac, a troubled teen looking to get his life straight, the delicate balance of the three friends’ lives is disrupted. The four teenagers immerse themselves in a swirl of parties, possible love, sex and desire – until secrets are revealed and their lives are thrown into chaos. Visually stunning, Rhys Graham’s debut feature captures the world of teenage suburbia with a sensuous and vivid intensity; a world where adults are exiled to the outer margins. Evoking the burning energy of adolescent rebellion against small-town inertia, GALORE is an intimate and hauntingly beautiful coming-of-age story of love, loss, and betrayal.

Better Living Through Chemistry

Meet small town pharmacist Doug Varney (Sam Rockwell). Soft in the middle, henpecked by his Type-A wife (Michelle Monaghan), Doug is sleepwalking through life, wishing things could change but doing nothing about it. He arrives at his place of employment, Bishop’s Pharmacy, on a beautiful square in downtown Woodbury, where he’s taking over the business from his father in law. Walter Bishop (Ken Howard), is a gruff know-it-all who doesn’t think much of Doug, when he thinks of him at all. Doug does what a local pharmacist does, filling prescriptions, consulting with patients, and trying to manage his two dimwitted staffers–checkout girl Janet (Jenn Harris) and delivery guy Noah (Ben Schwartz). But Doug’s whole life changes when he’s forced to make a delivery run and ends up at the magnificent home of Elizabeth Roberts (Olivia Wilde). A lonely, beautiful trophy wife, Elizabeth is trapped in her surroundings, much as Doug has been. Yet, despite being from different worlds, there’s instantaneous chemistry between them and when she drunkenly kisses Doug during their first meeting, a whole new avenue opens up for him.

Peaky Blinders Season 1

Peaky Blinders is an epic gangster drama set in the lawless streets of post-war Birmingham on the cusp of the 1920s.
Britain in 1919 is a tumultuous mix of despair and hedonism, a nation cleaned out by the extravagances of the Great War. Returning soldiers, newly-minted revolutionaries and criminal gangs all fight for survival in an industrial landscape gripped by economic upheaval.

Thomas Shelby and his family run the most feared and powerful local gang, the Peaky Blinders. Named for their practice of sewing razor blades into the peaks of their caps, they make money from illegal betting, protection and the black market.

But Tommy’s ambitions go beyond running the streets, and when a crate of guns goes missing from an arms factory, he recognises an opportunity to move up in the world. Crime pays, but business pays better.

Line of Duty Season 2 – I bloody love this show!!

Line of Duty returns for a second series, featuring a new police corruption story told over six one-hour episodes. The series opens explosively with the ambush of a police convoy in which three police officers are killed and a protected witness seriously injured. The sole surviving police officer is Detective Inspector Lindsay Denton (Keeley Hawes).

Deputy Chief Constable Mike Dryden (Mark Bonnar) takes personal charge, assigning AC-12 to the case. Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott (Martin Compston), Detective Constable Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) and Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar) are joined by newly-appointed Detective Constable Georgia Trotman (Jessica Raine) to investigate a complex case rich in unexpected twists and turns.

Initially AC-12’s most valuable witness, the suspicion soon arises that DI Denton could be their prime suspect.

The Missing

Brilliant show – love James Nesbitt!

A small boy was taken from his family.
A marriage fell apart.
A police officer lost hope.
A father searches on…

When five year-old Oliver is snatched from his family while on holiday in France, it sets off a manhunt that will last for years and years to come. The Missing takes you inside the mind of a father, desperate to find his lost son. Told through a delicate and complex narrative that reflects the fractured and frantic battle for a lost child, a lost marriage and a lost life, The Missing is a chilling, resonant and heartbreaking drama of a life consumed by hope and the conviction of love, loss and truth.

A poignant narrative puzzle with twists and turns at every stage, The Missing follows Tony, a man who will do whatever it takes to find his missing child. Tony’s exhaustive search fractures his marriage to Emily and threatens to destroy his life. Julien, the French police detective who launched the initial search for the child, also cannot shake the small belief that he may still be alive. This gripping relationship thriller is told over two time frames, simultaneously, in two countries. Exploring the emotional cost of obsession, hope and finding when to let go, this thrilling drama shows the impact of a child’s abduction.


London’s police are in need of a major public image revamp and Chief Constable Richard Miller (James Nesbitt) thinks he’s found just the right person for the job. For Liz Garvey (Brit Marling), a visionary from the world of new media and the woman tasked with revolutionising the force’s image, the job couldn’t have come at a worse time as an outbreak of chaos and violence erupts in the capital.

Co-created by BAFTA® winners Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain (Peep Show), Oscar® winner Danny Boyle and Robert Jones (The Usual Suspects).

Babylon brings together acclaimed directors Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire), Jon S. Baird (Filth) and Sally El Hosaini (My Brother The Devil), co-writer Jon Brown and an all star cast to take a wry look at the people and politics in the command rooms and on the frontlines of a modern police force.
