A brilliant female engineer has an opportunity to head a major company in this political thriller. It’s a challenge made brutally difficult in a world dominated by men.

“Emmanuelle Blachey is a brilliant and determined engineer who has risen up through the ranks of her company — a major French energy firm — and now sits on the board of directors. When an influential women’s network approaches her to take the lead of one of the stock exchange’s top companies, things quickly change around Emmanuelle. The opportunity to become the first woman in this prestigious position is a challenge the business woman is ready to undertake, but competing in a realm still largely dominated by men is no mean feat. The ambitious woman must marshal her forces to overcome the hurdles of the milieu, including corporate sexism and personal demons in order to take part in the ruthless race for power.” (French Film Festival)

From the producer of Gosford Park and director John Stephenson (Five Children and It, The Christmas Candle), Interlude in Prague is love story and a tragedy of epic proportions.

Tired of demonstrating his talents to a privileged elite, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is brought to the Bohemian city of Prague by Baron Saloka, a vain and self-obsessed aristocrat, whose dark presence permeates everyone’s lives. On his arrival, Mozart is happy to have found the one place on earth where he feels his talent is appreciated and sets about creating a new opera. However, his unconventional presence and forbidden affair with young soprano Zuzanna soon unleashes a series of dramatic and tragic events. Overwhelmed by the tangled web of lust, violence and intrigue that surrounds him, Mozart finds inspiration to create the astonishing and dramatic piece of music that will become the operatic masterpiece, Don Giovanni.

McQueen

Running time: 1 hr 50 mins

STARTS 6 SEPT
Documentary on late British fashion genius Alexander McQueen, featuring interviews with friends and family and footage of his spectacular, sometimes disturbing, shows.

"London Eastender Lee Alexander McQueen started his career as an apprentice at Saville Row, before his rag-trade aunt put up the money for him to study at Central Saint Martins. The influential stylist Isabella Blow (who persuaded him to use his middle name, Alexander) championed McQueen after seeing his graduation show. By 27, McQueen was head designer at Givenchy. He went on to win British Designer of the Year four times. His controversial shows made headline after headline. Behind the scenes, he drove his staff too hard, abandoned close friends, and tragically lost his way. This stunning documentary is an appropriately lavish and multifaceted celebration of his life and boundary-pushing creations." (Sydney Film Festival)

The Dawn Wall

Rating: Doco

Running time: TBA

STARTS Sept 28

In January, 2015, American rock climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson captivated the world with their effort to climb The Dawn Wall, a seemingly impossible 3,000 foot rock face in Yosemite National Park, California.

The pair lived on the sheer vertical cliff for weeks, igniting a frenzy of global media attention.

But for Tommy Caldwell, The Dawn Wall was much more than just a climb. It was the culmination of a lifetime defined by overcoming obstacles. At the age of 22, the climbing prodigy was taken hostage by rebels in Kyrgyzstan. Shortly after, he lost his index finger in an accident, but resolved to come back stronger. When his marriage fell apart, he escaped the pain by fixating on the extraordinary goal of free climbing The Dawn Wall.

Blurring the line between dedication and obsession, Caldwell and his partner Jorgeson spend six years meticulously plotting and practicing their route. On the final attempt, with the world watching, Caldwell is faced with a moment of truth. Should he abandon his partner to fulfill his ultimate dream, or risk his own success for the sake of their friendship?
