ALL IS TRUE [M]

Drama/History ‧ 1h 41m

The year is 1613, and Shakespeare is acknowledged as the greatest writer of the age. But disaster strikes when his renowned Globe Theatre burns to the ground. Devastated, Shakespeare returns to Stratford, where he must face a troubled past and a neglected family. Haunted by the death of his only son, Hamnet, he struggles to mend the broken relationship with his wife and daughters. In so doing, he is ruthlessly forced to examine his own failings as a husband and father.
Directed By: Kenneth Branagh

OVER THE FENCE COMEDY FILM FESTIVAL (MA15+)

Laugh, chuckle, roar and buckle for a roller coaster ride through 14 short comedy films portraying the imperfect worlds of human beings. After all, not only does being “imperfect” make you human, it also highlights our hidden strengths; it is the reason why everyone is unique in their own way.

“Nobody’s Perfect” – doesn’t matter if it’s trying to make a quick buck from buying alcohol for a minor, wanting to feed ducks illegally or even the attempt to rob a bank in your senior years, we all have our flaws and weaknesses that, in comedy filmmakers imaginations, make for the most fantastic and strange situations.

Each film, bizarre or crazy, each film is perfect just they way they are – welcome to “Imperfect Worlds”

2019 MRRWF Special screening – BOOK WEEK

Book Week (M)

Drama/Comedy ‧ 1h 38m

Filmed in the Blue Mountains, Book Week is a shaggy dark comedy about a disgraced novelist turned English teacher trying to find redemption.

For generations, dressing up for Book Week has been an Aussie school tradition. But for high-school English teacher Nicholas Cutler (Alan Dukes), it’s the week from hell. Once a literary ‘enfant’ terrible, and now simply a terrible man, he’s now struggling to instil a love of reading in teenagers who’d rather toy with their phones and dress up as movie superheroes. Trying to roll with these bad new times, Nicholas has penned a trashy zombie story. He’s tantalisingly close to a literary comeback – but it’ll be at the expense of his students, colleagues and long-suffering family. Will this be the week Mr Cutler finally has people’s backs, not paperbacks?

Writer/director Heath Davis based this film on his own experiences as a teacher. Shot in Katoomba and featuring Western Sydney locals as extras, Book Week offers a wry new comedy with a genial fondness for community – the kind you don’t always find in books.
Director: Heath Davis
Writer: Heath Davis
Stars: Toby Schmitz, Maya Stange, Jolene Anderson

 

TICKETS:
Adults $15, Arts Hub Members $12, Youth $8

Book online (up to 1h before screening) or buy tickets from the cinema’s box office before screening.

STORM BOY

A beautiful and contemporary retelling of Colin Thiele’s classic Australian tale. ‘Storm Boy’ has grown up to be Michael Kingley, a successful retired businessman and grandfather. When Kingley starts to see images from his past that he can’t explain, he is forced to remember his long-forgotten childhood, growing up on an isolated coastline with his father. He recounts to his grand-daughter the story of how, as a boy, he rescued and raised an extraordinary orphaned pelican, Mr Percival. Their remarkable adventures and very special bond has a profound effect on all their lives. Based on the beloved book, Storm Boy is a timeless story of an unusual and unconditional friendship.
