Running time: 1 hr 29 mins

STARTS OCT 5
Period drama adapted from Nikolai Leskov's novel Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District. Directed by Sundance Grand Jury Prize-nominee William Oldroyd.

"Lady Katherine (Florence Pugh) is a young misfit in the stifling social atmosphere of Victorian England. Locked in a marriage of convenience to a much older man, marooned on an estate amidst the northern heaths of County Durham, Katherine strains against the social mores of the time. Lectured at by the local priest, tormented by a father-in-law who expects her to provide an heir, she paces her constrictive world like a wild animal looking for escape. She soon finds an outlet for her passions in Sebastian (Cosmo Jarvis), a young groom who is one of her husband's many servants. Those passions could be their undoing." (Toronto International Film Festival)

Mountain

Rating: Doco

Running time: 1 hr 10 mins

A cinematic and musical collaboration between Sherpa filmmaker Jennifer Peedom and the Australian Chamber Orchestra, exploring humankind's fascination with high places.

"Fellow collaborators to this unique project are British writer Robert Macfarlane (author of the award-winning Mountains of the Mind) and leading high altitude cinematographer Renan Ozturk (Sherpa, Meru). Richard Tognetti's recorded score is stunning; soaring as the camera climbs vertiginous slopes or swoops across rocky peaks. With all this earthly beauty, it's hard to believe that only three centuries ago, the idea of conquering a peak was considered crazy. Mountains were once solely places of peril, not beauty. The absorbing narration traces our modern day fascination – our irresistible and sometimes fatal attraction to the dizzying heights." (Sydney Film Festival)

Rating: PG Course language

Running time: 1 hr 21 mins

STARTS SEPT 7
★★★★ “A RARE INSIGHT INTO THE STORY OF MEN WHO PUSH THEMSELVES TO THE POINT OF NO RETURN”
“IN SPIRIT TO ‘MAN ON WIRE’ AND ‘TOUCHING THE VOID’. THE FREE MAN MUST BE SAVOURED ON THE BIG SCREEN"

Director Toa Fraser (THE DEAD LANDS, 6 DAYS) follows world champion freestyle skier Jossi Wells on his quest to understand what it really means to be free. Tested to his limits and pushing his body further than ever before, Wells is the vehicle for Fraser’s intense philosophical meditation on extreme sportspeople, risk, life, death and flying.

In Fraser’s typical genre-defying style, THE FREE MAN is part extreme sports documentary, part-mountain adventure and part psychological and spiritual exploration.
