Rose

Rating: M Violence, offensive language & drug use

Running time: 1hr 30mins

STARTS 13 DEC

"Cybill Shepherd and James Brolin bring a Marvellous Chemistry.”
Broadway World.
Rose Jones (CYBILL SHEPHERD), 67, is a mom, and ex- cop. She is also a widow, desperately lonely since her husband died. Rose is a person who has played it “safe” all of her life; never a bold adventurer, or a chance taker. All that changes when, informed that she has a crippling illness, decides to “escape” by taking a solo road trip -- in her wheelchair. Her friends (the girls on her bowling team) are horrified, telling Rose that her plan is “scary!” Rose declares: “It’s scarier to stay here!”

Defiant, Rose takes off alone, onto the back roads that wind through the magnificent New Mexico landscape; through small towns and villages, where she stops to rest at health spas. At one spa Rose encounters Lilly (PAM GRIER), 68, a free-spirited hippie. Lilly reminds Rose of life’s forgotten pleasures and surprises, which Rose has not experienced in years.

Rose then meets Max (JAMES BROLIN), 70, a handsome, charming cowboy/ rancher. Max falls for Rose (her beauty -- and her curious mode of transportation). He charms her. They fall in love. Through Max, Rose rediscovers the magic of romance.

Meet Patriot, Potomac, Primrose, Poppet, and Phil — five determined puppies who, from the moment they’re born, begin an incredible journey to become guide dogs for the blind.

At every step of the way, the puppies will be tested, challenged, and evaluated. But not just any dog makes it all the way to graduation, and only the best of the best will make the cut — who has what it takes to be the pick of the litter?

Kusama: Infinity

Rating: Doco

Running time: 1 hr 20 mins

STARTS NOV 22
Sundance Grand Jury Prize-nominated documentary on celebrated Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, aka the ‘Princess of Polka Dots’.

"Frustrated by Japan’s conservative culture, Kusama moved to New York in 1958. Once there, she gained notoriety with her avant-garde sculptures, installations and performances – but little success. She was stymied by sexism and racism, and other artists adopted her ideas but failed to acknowledge her contribution. Disheartened, she returned to Tokyo in 1970, and voluntarily retired to a mental institution. Nonetheless, she continued to create, habitually visiting her nearby studio to work. Today, Kusama’s polka dot creations draw huge crowds at exhibitions around the world, from America to Australia." (Sydney Film Festival)
