Yesterday
Yesterday
Yesterday

A film about the world turning upside down which, sure, might feel a little to close to home considering the current events but, trust us, this movie offers a welcome escape from reality.

Pure escapism with a killer soundtrack - well worth the watch!

Someone Great

Someone Great is a new take on a romantic comedy that’s ultimate all about the truest loves of our lives – our girls. This film features a trio of tour de force performances from Gina Rodriguez, Brittany Snow and DeWanda Wise. After Jenny (Gina Rodriguez) is dumped by her long-term boyfriend and finds herself staring down the barrel of a quarter-life crisis, she calls her two best friends who take her out for one last outrageous adventurous day in New York City.

Pride & Prejudice
Pride & Prejudice

Well it’s just a classic, isn’t it? Heartstoppingly helmed by Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen, this dramatization of the Jane Austen classic has it all, wit, romance, smoldering stares and a love story so swoonworthy and ultimately satisfying that it’s been retold a thousand times – we’re looking at you West Side Story, Bridget Jones’ Diary and Bride and Prejudice.

The White Tiger

Based on the novel by the same name, this new film starring Priyanka Chopra-Jonas and Ardash Gourav, is the story of an ambitious driver who takes a job working for a wealthy Indian couple and uses wit and cunning to plot his way out of poverty and catapult himself up the social ladder.

Endings Beginnings

A love triangle between Shailene Woodley, Sebastian Stan and Jamie Dornan? Count us in! Set over the course of a year, a thirty-something woman navigates love, loss and heartbreak whilst slowly falling deeper and deeper in love with two men who just happen to be best friends.

Mystic River
Mystic River
Mystic River

Mystic River is a suspense-fuelled suburban noir mystery about a murder in a small town that links together mysteries and exposes deeply held secrets. Directed by Clint Eastwood, Mystic River features an all-star cast giving some of the best performances of their careers. So it’s no surprise that back in 2003 the film scored six Oscar nominations with Sean Penn and Tim Robbins winning in the Best Actor Categories.

Jungle
Jungle
Jungle

A young adventurer – played by a particularly rugged looking Daniel Radcliffe – joins a group of friends and a guide with a mysterious past on a trek through the remotest parts of the Amazon jungle. Based off a true story, this journey of survival and self discovery is a tour of force for Radcliffe but, make no mistake, this is thriller is not for the faint of heart!

The Wolf of Wall Street

The film that catapulted homegrown star Margot Robbie to the A-list is a rollicking ride of non-stop hedonism. Based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, The Wolf of Wall Street charts his rise from wide-eyed youngster to ostentatiously wealthy stockbroker, cheating and corrupting all the way to the top. Sex, drugs, money and crime are all in high supply in this rip-roaring black comedy that speeds through its three hour run time.

Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

A follow up to DC Comics Suicide Squad, this blockbuster film is centered around Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and her fight for emancipation from the Joker. Between the gritty fights, all in brawls and absurd hilarity,  there is something for everyone in this action-packed comedy.

It's Complicated

A loved modern classic starring Hollywood heavyweights Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin, you can expect amazing things from this film. The movie follows Jane Adler's (Meryl Streep) secret affair with her remarried ex-husband (Alec Baldwin), and how she navigates this tricky situation all the while falling in love with her architect (Steve Martin).

School of Rock

This heartwarming comedy about a failing musician disguising as a substitute teacher is a must-watch. Jack Black is in the lead role and plays the overly enthusiastic faux-teacher that turns his stuffy, Private School classroom into a rock music studio. You can expect lots of laughs and heroic guitar solos.

Bachelorette

A debaucherous scavenger hunt, too much booze, and a ruined wedding dress; what could possibly go wrong? Bachelorette follows a group of bridesmaids navigating their way through the wedding weekend. Starring Kirsten Dunst, Rebel Wilson, Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan, it will only take 10 minutes for you to start laughing.

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

Having Eurovision 2020 FOMO? Lucky for you funnyman Will Ferrell and OG rom-com queen Rachel McAdams have teamed up to tell the story of faux Swedish rock band Fire Saga, and their journey to Eurovision fame. Definitely not the usual brand of comedy you know Ferrell for, and we're here for it!

Happy Gilmore

An iconic Adam Sandler flick, Happy Gilmore tells the tale of a failed hockey player determined to make big money on the PGA golf tour, to help his grandmother. If you know Sandler, you know the movie will be the right amount of crude and silly.

Hot Fuzz

When overachieving London Police Officer Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is transferred to a sleepy village, strange things start to happen. So strange in fact, that it makes him think there is something sinister going on.

Step Brothers

When it comes to comedy duos, there are none greater than Will Ferrell and John C Reilly; think Talladega Nights and Holmes and Watson. The actors play middle-aged step brothers that live at home, and the movie follows their parent's attempts to get them out of the house. The one-liners are legendary and the Catalina Wine Mixer is not to be missed.
