Far From Men

Far From Men (M)

The year is 1954, the Algerian War is beginning and village schoolteacher Daru, an ex-French Army soldier, is caught in the crossfire. Born in Algeria but Spanish by lineage, he's a man out of time and place, perceived as alien by both locals and colonisers alike. So when he reluctantly agrees to escort a dissident to a regional police station to face trial for murder, a series of incidents and revelations force the question of where Daru's loyalties truly lie. A gripping tale of morality and friendship based on a short story by Albert Camus, writer/director David Oelhoffen's masterful, breathtakingly-shot drama bears all the hallmarks of a classic frontier western, yet carries strong contemporary resonances.

Viggo Mortensen, Reda Kateb. Director: David Oelhoffen

Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, Far From The Madding Crowd is the story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene, who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak, a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching willfulness; Frank Troy, a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood, a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story of Bathsheba's choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love – as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.

Mr. Holmes (M)

In 1947, Sherlock Holmes, long-retired, lives in a sleepy Sussex village with his housekeeper and her amateur-sleuthing son. But far from living out a peaceful retirement, he is haunted by an unsolved case from fifty years ago. He remembers only fragments: a confrontation with an angry husband, a secret bond with his beautiful but unstable wife. With his legendary mental powers on the wane, and without his old sidekick Watson, Holmes is faced with the toughest case of his life - a case that might finally reveal to him the mysteries of the human heart. Based on the novel by Mitch Cullin, "A Slight Trick Of The Mind".

Ian McKellen, Laura Linney. Director: Bill Condon

Ruben Guthrie (MA15+)

Life is good for Sydney ad man Ruben Guthrie - he leads a party boy lifestyle, has a model fiancée and lives in a house on the water. He's at the top of his game, until some drunken skylarking lands Ruben at the bottom of his infinity pool, lucky to be alive. His mum hits the panic button, and then his fiancée leaves him, but not before issuing him one final challenge: If Ruben can do one year without a drink, she'll give him another chance. The first film by Brendan Cowell is based on his play of the same name, in turn loosely based on his own social experiment in giving up alcohol for the same 12 months, which saw him lose whole friendships, start brand new ones, and have his relationships with people, his body and the world change. The story of one man battling not only the bottle, but the city that won't let him put it down.

Patrick Brammall, Abbey Lee, Alex Dimitriades. Director: Brendan Cowell
