But see it first at this preview screening!

SYNOPSIS:

Testament of Youth is a powerful story of love, war and remembrance, based on the First World War memoir by Vera Brittain, which has become the classic testimony of that war from a woman’s point of view. A searing journey from youthful hopes and dreams to the edge of despair and back again, it’s a film about young love, the futility of war and how to make sense of the darkest times.

REVIEW:

Nerida

This is a beautiful film on many levels. The main protagonist is very sensitively played by Alicia Vikander and I found her performance totally convincing as a young Vera Brittain. We are immediately drawn in to another world that has long gone – Britain of 100 years ago….however, what has changed in terms of fruitless war and lost lives? We have learnt nothing and that is the tragedy of the message of this film. I found the costumes, the sets , the atmosphere of the film engaging and accurate. The idea that Vera Brittain was born in to privilege and was one of the first women to be accepted at Oxford University is already a testament to her character and courage and determination. What follows are the harrowing stories of how those dear to her are effected by the banality and evil of war. Testament of Youth is about lost youth and how war achieves nothing at all. I think it is original to see a film that focuses on the experience of a woman at war.

SYNOPSIS:

This cinematic jewel won Best Foreign Film in the Spanish Language at the 2015 Goyas and was nominated for best Foreign-language film at the recent Academy Awards, reinforcing that the Closing Night premiere screenings are not to be missed.

Director Damián Szifrón has executed a wonderfully entertaining revenge film comprised of six rebellious vignettes that are nothing short of what the title suggests – WILD. A deadly case of road rage, a wedding gone wrong, accidental manslaughter…everyday situations in which the darkest side of good people shines through and proves there is an animal in all of us.

Described by Variety as “wickedly delightful”, this compendium of stories ooze the blackest of humour by demonstrating how everyday people can be pushed to their farthest limits. The superbly drawn characters are embodied by the brightest stars of Argentinian cinema including, Ricardo Darín, Darío Gradinetti and Erica Rivas.

71 will exclusively screen at Palace Barracks, Brisbane.

REVIEW:

Nerida

What a roller coaster of a film from beginning to end – Jack O Connell is brilliant and the supporting cast are thoroughly believable and the acting top class- my favourite star for the future Corey McKinley who plays the loyalist boy; he highlights the difference between Catholic and Loyalist which make the film a history lesson as well as a movie- its an advert for the British Film Industry – when making a film about the troubles to capture the mood of the time and to bring that to the screen depicting the different factions and hatred that came with it is difficult but whoever researched the period, got the costume and feel of the City of Belfast spot on created a Gem. The riot scene felt as if you were there in the thick of it, the building tension between the thin barricade of soldiers and the baying mob. This film is worthy of awards and I hope it gets lots as it will encourage others to make similar movies. Go and see it – the film captures the distorted angry faces the looks of shock and fear- very well made film indeed
