Kylie Bucknell (Morgana O'Reilly) is forced to return to the house she grew up in when the court places her on home detention. Her punishment is made all the more unbearable by the fact she has to live there with her mother Miriam (Rima Te Wiata) – a well-intentioned blabbermouth who's convinced that the house is haunted. Kylie dismisses Miriam's superstitions as nothing more than a distraction from a life occupied by boiled vegetables & small-town gossip. However, when she too becomes privy to unsettling whispers & strange bumps in the night, she begins to wonder whether she's inherited her overactive imagination, or if the house is in fact possessed by a hostile spirit who's less than happy about the new living arrangement.

Watercolour, hand-drawn animated tale set in a storybook Paris, about the unlikely friendship between a little mouse (destined for dentistry but yearning to be an artist) and a down-on-his-luck bear (a poet and musician).

Psychological romantic drama starring Annette Bening (American Beauty) and Ed Harris (The Truman Show), about a widowed woman who finds herself attracted to a man that bears a striking resemblance to her late husband. From the director of The Chumscrubber.
Several years after being widowed, Nikki (Bening) is merely going through the motions of her life when she meets Tom; a man that looks exactly like her beloved deceased husband (Harris). Before she knows it, she is falling in love all over again. But with which man? The Face of Love explores the fine line between grief and insanity, whilst still telling the funny and touching story of a blossoming romance. Features a supporting turn from Robin Williams as Nikki's confidante and secondary love interest.
Fresh from the confronting Carnage, controversial director Roman Polanski now serves up another delicious provocation with the risqué Venus in Fur. A taut adaptation of David Ives’ Tony Award winning play, Polanski’s film is a head-spinning plunge into a world of sex and power, where the line between acting and reality is dangerously blurred.
Thomas Novachek (Mathieu Amalric) is struggling to cast the lead in his theatrical production of the notorious Sacher-Masoch novella of the title. As if on cue, the abrasive and brash Vanda (Polanski’s wife Emmanuelle Seigner) appears at the auditions. With the play already memorised and an unnerving way of completely inhabiting the dominatrix role, Vanda casts an intoxicating spell on Thomas that spirals into a power play beyond the stage.

The great actor, comedian and raconteur launches his new volume of memoirs with a brilliant one man comic show. Much loved, multiple award winning national treasure Stephen Fry’s third autobiography follows 1997’s candid ‘Moab is My Washpot’ and 2010’s UK best-selling ‘The Fry Chronicles’.

Broadcast from London’s Royal Festival Hall, this unique event offers the entertaining peaks (and lows) of Stephen Fry’s More Fool Me.
