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.

Denial

Mar 23, 17 Denial

We have 10 double passes for the preview screening of DENIAL, 6:30pm, Monday 3 April, at New Farm Cinemas.

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

“What truth are you willing to fight for?”

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

In Cinemas APRIL 13
But see it first, at the preview screening!

SYNOPSIS:

Denial is a riveting drama about the real-life showdown between American historian Deborah Lipstadt and notorious English Holocaust denier David Irving. In 1993, Lipstadt publishes a book called “Denying the Holocaust”, in which she refers to Irving as a denier. Soon after, he sues her for defamation under English law, where the burden of proof is on the accused. The whole world may know that the Holocaust happened, but now, Deborah and her legal team need to prove it. Featuring a powerhouse performance from Rachel Weisz, Denial is the inspirational story of one woman’s fight for historical truth, and a timely reminder that the truth itself can withstand even the most aggressive and persistent falsification.

Directed by Mick Jackson and starring Rachel Weisz, Timothy Spall and Tom Wilkinson

SYNOPSIS:

Nerida:

This is the kind of movie that is made for truth and sometimes truth doesn’t always come with fanfare and a lawyer at the end screaming “You can’t handle the truth!” Denial relies on facts to move it’s story forward rather than emotional manipulation. It’s a movie based on true events, not “inspired” by them. The court scenes alone were written verbatim from actual transcripts. And it is far from being void of emotion. In fact, by the end of the movie I was as nervous a wreck as if I were Deborah Lipstadt herself, despite knowing the outcome of the trial.

The whole film has a gripping undercurrent of emotion as we watch the character of Lipstadt struggle with letting others speak for her when she craves giving herself and Holocaust survivors their own voice. And it is because of the film’s lack of embellishment that we get a chance to listen with objective ears to the question at hand: can the Holocaust be scrutinised and proved without eyewitnesses? Can facts alone say it did happen?

As for the actors, they provide all the human insight needed to make this film come alive. Some reviews point out that the script didn’t provide an emotional catharsis, but Denial wasn’t meant to be a weeper. It made its point very clearly with sublime and refreshing (and I mean refreshing) calm.
