SYNOPSIS:

COSI by Louis Nowra

The year is 1971 and as people march in the streets protesting against the Vietnam War a young director named Lewis endeavours to mount a production of Mozart’s Cosi fan Tutte in a small burnt-out theatre on the grounds of a mental institution with a cast of madmen. COSI explores the life lesson that Lewis experiences as his life is touched by these extraordinary people. As his operatic production lurches forward, the audience learn, along with Lewis, that when chasing your dreams it helps to be a little crazy. This play is a poignant look at life through the eyes of patients at an insane asylum. It’s an hilarious take on the madness of creative endeavour and the chaotic terror of getting up there and making a fool of yourself. First produced in 1992, COSI has become one of the most produced Australian plays. Semi-autobiographical in nature, Louis Nowra has written a terrific play about madness, illusion, sanity…and theatre.

Featuring Andrew Alley, Elodie Boal, Benjamin Bray, Bradley Chapman, Aaron Dora, Skyah Lunar Fishpool, Rachel Hunt, Dudley Powell, Brent Schon, Matt Steenson and Jermia Turner

Directed by Timothy Wynn

In Cinemas APRIL 20
But see it first, at the preview screening!

SYNOPSIS:

With London emptied of men now fighting at the Front, Catrin Cole lands herself a job writing copy for propaganda films that need “a woman’s touch”. Her natural flair quickly gets her noticed by dashing movie producer Buckley whose path would never have crossed hers in peacetime.

With the country’s morale at stake, Catrin, Buckley and a colourful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin discovers there is as much drama, comedy and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen.

From the producers of Carol & Brooklyn and from the director of An Education, THEIR FINEST stars Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin and Bill Nighy.

REVIEW:

Nerida:

Everything you were expecting … except it isn’t. Their Finest is very coherent, with simple yet relatable and sympathetic characters, the story moves forward as a reaction of the universe and is not necessarily character-driven, with conflict usually being originated from authority figures such as the producers/the studio. Their Finest not only uses the war to drive the plot forward and smartly show how it constantly affects the characters, but also makes a statement on how studios and producers control the creative process to win the audience’s approval and give a positive image of the allies. The humour of the film is simple and sometimes silly in a way that it does not always add anything to the story. That being said, the simplicity of it does add a nice layer of happiness to a story that is not meant to be over-dramatic, and Bill Nighy’s performance and character nails in the comedic aspect.

Overall, Their Finest is an above-average romantic film. It is not groundbreaking and might feel like many films we’ve seen before, but will please the audience with a romantic story and a very well thought conclusion that gives a bittersweet aftertaste

Colossal

Mar 31, 17 Colossal

 

We have 5 double in-season passes for COLOSSAL

For your chance to win a double pass, answer the question below:

“What colossal effect would you like to leave on the world?”

Put your answer on Twitter (with the hashtag #SheIsColossal), Facebook, or below!

In Cinemas APRIL 13

SYNOPSIS:

Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is an out-of-work party girl who, after getting kicked out of her apartment by her boyfriend, is forced to leave her life in New York and move back to her hometown. When news reports surface that a giant creature is destroying Seoul, South Korea, Gloria gradually comes to the realisation that she is somehow connected to this far-off phenomenon. As events begin to spin out of control, Gloria must determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world.

Deconstructing the monster movie genre in wildly imaginative ways, writer-director Nacho Vigalondo (TIMECRIMES, EXTRATERRESTRIAL, OPEN WINDOWS) unleashes a fantastical tale that also triumphs as a wholly original and subversive romantic comedy. Featuring an empowering central performance by Anne Hathaway — playing a train-wreck fumbling toward redemption as she did in RACHEL GETTING MARRIED — COLOSSAL is that rare beast, the story of a woman battling for her survival and taking control of her own life in the shadow of two very different monsters on either side of the world. Releasing at Palace Centro from April 13.
