SEASON RUNS 7-11 NOVEMBER

SYNOPSIS:

The Blood Votes, a new play by Michael Futcher (A Beautiful LifeThe Drowning Bride) brings to life the divisive and at times violent conscription debates of 1916 and 1917. It asks us to consider enforced participation in war through the eyes of mothers, sons, serving soldiers, workers on the home front, and religious and political groups.

Two referendum questions were narrowly voted down by the Australian public. The vivid debate that accompanied the votes brought important issues of “home front” life into dramatic focus: the essential character of the conflict, the nature of citizenship and public duty, government and democracy in war time, and the dreadful personal toll of the ‘Great War’ that was then entering its third year.

The Blood Votes is made possible through a partnership between QSE and the University of Queensland Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and funding from the Queensland Government.

Russian Resurrection Film Festival 2018

Oct 22, 18 Russian Resurrection Film Festival 2018

I have 5 double in-festival passes to the RUSSIAN RESURRECTION FILM FESTIVAL 2018, screening at Event Cinemas, Myer Centre from November 7-14.

For your chance to win a prize, simply answer the following question:

“What film do you want to see at the Russian Resurrection Film Festival 2018?”

Post your answer on our Facebook page, on Twitter, on Instagram (#RussianFF2018, tagging @reviewbrisbane) or below!

ONLY IN CINEMAS

Season runs November 7-14 at Event Cinemas, Myer Centre

Synopsis:

he festival opens on 7 November with The Coach, directed by and featuring super hunk Danila Kozlovsky – the biggest name in Russia cinema at the moment. The Coach captures the emotion and spirit of the Russian football world, following Yuri, the country’s star striker, and his fall from grace and subsequent redemptive arc. The film is heart-warming and inspirational – a great choice for the festival premiere. 
 
In The Hood is another Danila Kozlovsky film. This one is edgy and hyper-masculine action thriller. Also on offer are two films by Konstantin Khabenskiy, Selfie and Sobibor. The former is a sexy psychological thriller, and the latter is a Holocaust drama centring on the real-life Sobibor concentration camp breakout. Laugh out loud with Night Shift, the Russian Full Monty equivalent that also pokes fun at Russia’s political system and culture. Lady With a Little Dog is a classic that will take you (five/ten/twenty years) back to your first love. Another romance is I’m Losing Weight, a light rom-com based on friendship and love. Jumpman is a highly realistic, brutal and gripping arthouse drama. Pagans is also a arthouse drama but it tackles existential and philosophical questions. For family fun, try The Last Warrior, a fantasy set in Belogorie featuring Slavic fairy tale characters Baba Yaga and Koschei. 
 
The festival closes with the powerful moving trilogy Witnesses which tells the story of the Holocaust from the perspective of three uncanny witnesses  on 14 November

Announced as his final performance, Robert Redford stars in THE OLD MAN & THE GUN, a beautifully crafted film inspired by the true story of career robber Forrest Tucker. Following a daring prison escape at the age of 70, Forrest embarks on a string of bank robberies that confound the authorities and enchant the public. Wrapped up in the pursuit are detective John Hunt (Casey Affleck), who becomes captivated by Forrest’s commitment to his craft, and Jewel (Sissy Spacek), who loves him in spite of his chosen profession. In a homage to the American classics that made him a star, Redford delivers a magnetic performance in THE OLD MAN & THE GUN, a fun, thoughtful reflection on a life well-lived.
