SEASON RUNS 23 AUGUST – 8 SEPTEMBER

SYNOPSIS:

The Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble returns to the stunning Roma Street Parkland with Shakespeare’s much-loved Henry IV Part 1.

King Henry risked everything to take the crown, but now, under threat from former allies and foreign enemies, it sits uneasily. To make matters worse, his rebellious son, Prince Hal, is spending all his time in the seediest pubs of London with a troupe of petty criminals led by that corrupter of youth, Sir John Falstaff. As Henry’s enemies unite and the threat of war approaches, we’re drawn into an epic tale of family and friendship, rivalry and redemption.

As much a drunken comedy and coming-of-age drama as it is a history, Henry IV Part 1is sure to delight and excite Shakespeare lovers and newcomers alike!

The Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble is proud to partner with the Red CrossARAFMI Ltd, and Communify to present the A Night at the Theatre initiative.

Spider-man : Far From Home

REVIEW:

Nerida

The MCU is in great hands! I personally have been of the opinion that Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man and that the MCU has handled Spider-Man better than previous iterations. I believe Far From Home is proof of that.

I am blown away at the quality of this film – The writing, action, story, and characters are all at a higher calibre than we’ve seen in most of the previous MCU films. I did not once find myself bored. I was always entertained by some aspect of the movie. The high school romance, the elemental battles, and most of all Mysterio.

Mysterio was the big highlight of this. I never thought I’d see Mysterio on the big screen and now we have him in movie where he is done PERFECTLY. He was absolutely flawless and a big stand out character of the MCU. Jake Gyllenhal was born for this role and was used to the fullest of his abilities and the characters abilities.

In the end, this is what Spider-Man should be. Tom Holland is fantastic and is set to lead the future of the MCU.

Balloon

May 31, 19 Balloon

IN CINEMAS NOW as part of the
GERMAN FILM FESTIVAL

SYNOPSIS:

Known for Germany’s all-time biggest grossing movies Manitou’s Shoe (2001) and Dreamship Surprise (2004), comedy personality Michael “Bully” Herbig now makes his directing foray into thrillers, recreating a gripping historical event.

1979, East Germany at the height of the Cold War. Günter Wetzel (David Kross, The Reader), a bricklayer, and his friend Peter Strelzyk (Friedrich Mücke), an electrician, can no longer bear the oppressive regime. The two men and their wives resolve to undertake a mission to secretly build a hot air balloon from scratch that will carry them and their families over the border fence to freedom. Over the course of the next 18 months they sew 1,000 square metres of cloth and gather countless weather reports from West German radio with the Stasi (State Police) hot on their heels. A nerve-racking battle against the clock begins…

REVIEW:

Nerida

‘Why do we bother guarding the border? Wouldn’t we be better off without those traitors?’ This question by a Stasi-official pinpoints the paradox of communism: if a system without freedom would be better than a free society, why would citizens escape this system? The German film ‘Balloon’ doesn’t elaborate on the pros and cons of political systems; instead, it is a thriller filled with suspense, about two families trying to cross the border between East and West in a home made hot air balloon. The thriller-element is far more important than the political side of the story. The director doesn’t shy away from classic Hollywood screenwriting clichés, but he gets away with it.

I was gripped by the story, although it’s clear that it’s made more exciting than it was in reality. The excellent Wikipedia-entry ‘East German balloon escape’ is interesting reading material for those who want to compare the film with reality. Besides being a fine thriller, ‘Balloon’ also shows very well the effects authoritarian societies has on its citizens. They risk their own lives and those of their young children, in order to stop living in a big lie. Many films have shown the gruesome aspects of East German communism, but this brings you another aspect of it all.
