The Beguiled

Fresh from its Cannes Competition berth, Sofia Coppola's new film is a seductive thriller set in the Civil War era starring Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning.

Citizen Jane: Battle for the City

The Jane in question is author and activist Jane Jacobs and her fight was to preserve New York’s historic neighbourhoods in the 1960s – a battle no less pertinent today.

The Go-Betweens: Right Here

The intensely passionate, creative and fraught set of relationships that formed one of the most loved bands in Australian rock history is explored in this classy documentary.

God's Own Country

A sexually explicit romance about two sheep farmers in remote England that's earned favourable comparisons to Brokeback Mountain. Winner of the Directing Award at Sundance.

Good Time

Robert Pattinson gives a career-best performance in this atmospheric crime thriller about a heist gone wrong and a man’s increasingly desperate attempts to free his jailed brother.

Happy End

Master Austrian director Michael Haneke has won the Cannes Palme d'Or with his last two films, The White Ribbon (2009) and Amour (SFF 2012).

I Am Not Your Negro

Narrated by Samuel L Jackson, this mesmerising Oscar-nominated film channels the impassioned words of writer James Baldwin, one of the most incisive commentators on race in America.

The Last Goldfish

A daughter's search for her lost family stretches from Australia to Trinidad and WWII Germany. Rich with archival images, Su Goldfish's autobiographical documentary echoes through all those touched by forced migration.

The Ornithologist

This cheerfully blasphemous and homoerotic modern take on the life of St. Anthony won Portuguese visionary João Pedro Rodrigues (To Die Like a Man) Best Director at Locarno.

Ran

Kurosawa’s last great epic is a re-working of ‘King Lear’ with sons replacing the original’s daughters. The battle scenes are magnificently staged with impressive use of colour.

The Square

Fresh from winning the Cannes Palme d’Or the new film by Ruben Östlund (Play; Force Majeure) is a hilarious, outrageous satire of the art world.

The Teacher

Zuzana Maurery gives an award-winning performance as an unscrupulous school teacher in this crowd-pleasing dark comedy set in Communist era Czechoslovakia.
