Woodlawn - Clips


Tony Nathan becomes a part of a new era of humanity in 1973 when the Woodlawn High School in Birmingham, Alabama becomes a multi-racial institution for the very first time. The move allows this remarkably gifted African-American aspiring football player to join the Woodlawn Colonels, led by an open-minded and welcoming coach named Tandy Gerelds. However, Gerelds has got his work cut out; the government may be changing to make the world a more equal place, but there's still a lot of racism throughout the city which is rife with riots. The animosity doesn't stop at the school gates and Gerelds has the task of trying to diffuse the racially motivated hostilities within his team. And so, he enlists the help of Christian revivalist Hank to bring some peace to the game and hopefully help the community to learn to love each other again.

Foxcatcher Review


Excellent

Director Bennett Miller continues to skilfully probe around the edges of true stories with this follow-up to Capote and Moneyball, although this is a much, much darker tale. Actually, it's such an unnerving series of events that it's not easy to watch, and its characters aren't easy to like. But it's so expertly shot and edited, with startlingly full-on performances from the entire cast, that it can't help but get under the skin and chill us to the bone.

It opens after the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, where Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and and his big brother David (Mark Ruffalo) both won gold medals for wrestling. But they need help with funding to train for Seoul 1988, and Mark gets a remarkable offer from billionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell) to start a wrestling team at his vast Foxcatcher estate in New England, which is known for the thoroughbred horses managed by John's imperious mother Jean (Vanessa Redgrave). Aside from wanting to stay home with his wife (Sienna Miller) and kids, David doesn't trust John, so Mark heads to Foxcatcher on his own. But John's obsession knows no bounds, and soon he lures David and family to join them.

Initially, John's interest in wrestling feels like a mere eccentricity, a way of creating a team of "thoroughbreds" to rival his mother's prize-winning horses. But Carell cleverly plays the role with an insinuating glint that makes us wonder what he's up to, and his wrestlers see it too, going along with his nutty plans simply because the money is so good. Then the squirm-inducing twists and turns start, as John introduces Mark to cocaine and everything starts to spiral out of control. Nearly unrecognisable with a prosthetic hook nose, Carell is genuinely terrifying because his performance burns so slowly.

Foxcatcher - International Trailer


Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is brought to the Foxcatcher institute by multi-millionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell). Mark is a wrestler, and a good one at that. He confides in du Pont that he wants to be the world's best wrestler. Du Pont himself has his own motives - he wants to be the coach for the world's best wrestling team. But as training steadily creates friction between Mark, his brother Dave (Mark Ruffalo), and du Pont, it appears that not only are the athletes on edge, but their coach is actually becoming more and more mentally unstable.

Kill The Messenger Trailer


Kill the Messenger follows the real life story of Journalist Gary Webb (Jeremy Renner), as he stumbles upon the story of a lifetime. When Webb hears that the US government was aware of the exportation of drugs to America, he begins following up the story. This, in turn, leads him to uncover a conspiracy where the CIA imported vast amounts of cocaine to sell in the US in order to raise money for the Nicaraguan Contras rebel army. Webb is then faced with the option to leave the story alone, or continue his investigation and put his career, family and own life at risk.

Mark Schultz is an Olympic Gold Medallist wrestler who is often overlooked as his older brother Dave is renowned in the same sport.

Unfortunately, it soon becomes clear that du Pont is not all he once appeared to be, being prone to increasingly volatile and erratic behaviour, and his support of Mark begins to get unhealthy. Not only that, but it seems he is now obsessed by the charismatic persona of Dave, and through jealousy and spiralling paranoia, tragedy of the ultimate kind is about to ensue.

Hope Springs Review


Very Good
The trailers for this film are misleading, promising raucous comedy from the director of The Devil Wears Prada. But this is actually a resonant emotional drama seasoned with earthy humour. Yes, there are funny moments, but don't go in expecting full-on hilarity. It's grounded by terrific performances from Streep and Jones as a couple who, after 31 years of marriage, have lost that spark of romance. This is a pretty serious theme for a movie, and the film takes a straight-on look at the issue.

The story starts when Kay (Streep) finally refuses to accept her dried-up marriage to Arnold (Jones), who can't see any reason to change things. She enrols them in an intensive counselling session in Hope Springs, Maine, with a well-known therapist (Carell), and after initially refusing to go, Arnold tags along. Their sessions immediately hone in on their nonexistent sex life, which causes both Kay and Arnold to squirm in their seats (and provides most of the laughs for the audience). And their small-step exercises aren't exactly a roaring success. But Kay is determined that she wants a real relationship or nothing at all.

Hope Springs Trailer


After 31 years of marriage, Kay is starting to feel disheartened by the lack of a spark between her and her husband Arnold. Desperate for romance and intimacy again, Kay searches out a well-known specialist in marriage counselling who she arranges to visit to enrol in one week of therapy sessions in order to rekindle their relationship. She drags a reluctant Arnold on a plane to the town of Great Hope Springs for the counselling that will prove either futile or life-changing; it certainly doesn't look like an easy task what with the couple being faced with their sexual reservations and, conversely, each other's illicit fantasies.
