The Dressmaker Trailer


When Myrtle (Tilly) was little, she lived a happy life, along with her mother in the small town of Dungatar. When the local school bully is found dead with Myrtle standing over the body, she is immediately accused of the murder and at the behest of the boy's father (who's also a town councillor) Tilly's packed off to boarding school to live a life away from the town and her mother.

Forced to grow up quickly, Tilly runs away to Europe where she finds herself being taken in by a skilled seamstress - sewing was one of the skills that her mother taught her before being forced to leave. Tilly eventually finds herself being recommended to a famous designer who teaches Tilly how to make wonderful clothes.

As years pass, Tilly's mother Molly Dunnage is still constantly talked about and at the centre of any rumours and little by little becomes less able to look after herself. Now living in her dilapidated home, there are few people who speak to her and even less willing to help the old lady to help look after her.

A Month of Sundays Trailer


Frank Mollard is a real estate agent who lacks the rather crucial quality of enthusiasm when it comes to his work, so it's no surprise that he struggles to sell property despite the market being the best it's been in years. But he has enough problems in his personal life to contend with; he's struggling being alone after a heartbreaking divorce and he's desperately at odds with his teenage son. One day, however, a much needed source of comfort arrives in the form of a phone call. The woman on the end claims to be his mother, and she does sound remarkably like so - only his mother died a year ago so it couldn't possibly be true. It turns out to be a wrong number, but Frank still decides to visit the mistaken woman, Sarah, enamoured by her familiar voice and missing his mother now more than ever. He has dinner with her, even meeting her real son Damien, but she's bewildered by Frank's desire to continue seeing her. He knows his mother is gone, and this stranger is not in a position to replace her, but it's going to take some real soul-searching to let go of the women in his life.

Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark Review


Excellent
This inventive horror film plays to our deepest childhood fears. It's like a demented variation on The Borrowers, and first-rate acting and effects work combine to thoroughly creep us out.

Shy, artistic 8-year-old Sally (Madison) moves across the country to live with her architect dad Alex (Pearce) and his designer girlfriend Kim (Holmes) in a massive old Rhode Island mansion. But she soon starts hearing strange noises, and after discovering a boarded-up basement studio, things start getting a bit freaky. But how can she convince her sceptical father and the stepmum she doesn't trust that there's something in the house that wants to tear the family apart? Even after the handyman (Thompson) is attacked, Alex continues his renovations so he can lure a buyer (Dale).
