Nine translators, hired to translate the eagerly awaited final book of a bestselling trilogy, are confined in a luxurious bunker. When the first ten pages of the top-secret manuscript appear online, the dream job becomes a nightmare.


Dreamland

18 Jan 2021

In many ways, this is a modest film, a small focus on the Depression and ordinary people who became outlaws, while interestingly two of the central roles are played by Australians Margot Robbie and Travis Fimmel.

 


End of the Century / Fin de Siglo

18 Jan 2021 | Peter Malone MSC

The end of the century, months in 1999, is one of the settings of the action (plus contemplation) of this drama about two men and their relationship. In fact, this film seems to be about what was, what is, and what might have been.

Pieces of a Woman

18 Jan 2021 | Peter Malone MSC

How to be a good wife

18 Jan 2021 | Peter Malone MSC

Three of France’s most endearing leading ladies – Juliette Binoche, Noémie Lvovsky and Yolande Moreau – star in How to be a Good Wife. This peculiarly French comedy is a story of liberation.
