Bye Bye Tiberias (PG)

Bye Bye Tiberias

Bye Bye Tibériade


Years after leaving her Palestinian village to pursue an acting career in France, Hiam Abbass returns home with her daughter, in this intimate documentary about four generations of women and their shared legacy of separation.


By telling their story, director Abbass hopes to reclaim and question the personal, historical and visual legacies she inherited and to answer the question “How does a woman find her place when caught between worlds”? A question that applies equally to her and her mother. If there is any one takeaway from the film, it’s the importance of family attachments and the succour they provide. After its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, the essay film, with its mix of the personal and the political, has been a festival favourite, going on to win the Grierson award for best documentary in London and the jury prize ex aequo in Marrakech. It represented Palestine in the Oscar international feature competition. (Subtitles)

The G (15)

The G

A mysterious older woman seeks revenge on the corrupt legal guardian who destroyed her life.


Ann Hunter (aka "The G", played by Dale Dickey) and her husband retired to an unnamed American suburb 10 years ago. But one day out of the blue they are snatched from their home by a corrupt legal guardian who believes they have hidden wealth. Their home and assets are legally stripped from them and they are put in a prison-like "eldercare facility". Trapped in a corrupt and terrifying system, The G begins to show her true mettle as she and her loyal granddaughter fight to get them out... and get revenge on the people who did this. “I’m not a good person”, she says “But I do have other qualities.” This turns out to be something of an understatement. Dickey is remarkable in this very smart and not run-of-the-mill revenge thriller.

Fancy Dance (15)

Fancy Dance

Following her sister's disappearance, a Native American hustler kidnaps her niece from the child's white grandparents and sets out for the state powwow in hopes of keeping what is left of their family intact.


Since her sister's disappearance, Jax (Lily Gladstone from ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’) has cared for her niece Roki (Isabel Deroy-Olson) by scraping by on the Seneca-Cayuga reservation in Oklahoma. Every spare minute goes into finding her missing sister while also helping Roki prepare for an upcoming powwow. At the risk of Jax losing custody to Roki's grandfather, Frank (Shea Whigham), the pair hit the road and scour the backcountry to track down Roki's mother in time for the powwow. What begins as a search gradually turns into a far deeper investigation into the complexities and contradictions of Indigenous women moving through a colonized world while at the mercy of a failed justice system. This is both a shrewd familial drama and a slow-burning road film with the cinematic taste of a crime-thriller. Gladstone gives a tremendous performance.

Kinds of Kindness (18)

Kinds of Kindness

Yorgos Lanthimos and Emma Stone team up for a third time (‘The Favourite’, ‘Poor Things’) in this triptych fable which features the usual brave filmmaking mixed with dark comedy. A film where the director once again puts up a mirror to our flawed society and shows us the worst, and also the best, that humanity has to offer.


A man seeks to break free from his predetermined path and tries to take control of his own life; a policeman is alarmed that his wife who was missing-at-sea has returned and seems a different person; and a woman determined to find a specific someone with a special ability, is destined to become a prodigious spiritual leader. There is always a clamouring of A-listers to get into a Lanthimos film, and this one has a few regulars (Emma Stone, Willem Dafoe, Margaret Qualley) and a couple of newcomers (a brilliant Jesse Plemmons, Hong Chau). For those of you who discovered Lanthimos with ‘The Favourite’ or ‘Poor Things’, get ready to meet the original ‘Dogtooth’ version - unfiltered, uncut, old-school Yorgos. One of the highlights at the recent 2024 Cannes Film Festival.

The Present (PG)

The Present

When a young boy discovers he can use an enchanted grandfather clock to go back in time, he teams up with his siblings on a quest to bring their separated parents back together again.


Taylor (Easton Rocket Sweda), one of three siblings in a suburban American family, discovers that he can make time run backwards, going as far as 12 hours into the past. All he must do is physically move the hands of an heirloom upright clock. This proves useful because his parents – mum Jen (Isla Fisher) and dad Eric (Greg Kinnear) – are on a path towards separation, which they hope to announce at a family dinner that evening. So Taylor, who is electively mute, brings out his best ‘Groundhog Day’ tactics, and keeps rewinding time each time tweaking the parents’ day. This is a fun family film that could be enjoyed by all and includes a scene-stealing performance by Arturo Castro as a highly unprofessional therapist.

Rose (12A)

Rose

Two sisters have their relationship challenged on an anticipated coach trip to Paris. Based on the true story of the director’s own two sisters, this is a heartwarming movie about love and devotion.


Inger (Sofie Gråbøl) and Ellen (Lene Maria Christensen) are on a trip to Paris. When Inger announces her struggles with mental health to the group, the sisters are faced with pity from some and discrimination from others. On arrival in Paris, it soon becomes clear that Inger has a hidden agenda concerning a figure from her past, ultimately involving the entire group in her hunt for answers. This is a film about love and care for each other, in spite of our differences, as much as it is a film about not judging a book by its cover. The trip itself brings out many sides of Inger, and director Arden Oplev does a wonderful job ensuring Inger's humanity stays in the spotlight whether through drama or comedy. Because, despite the pitfalls of the subject matter, this is a very funny movie. (Subtitles)

Orlando, My Political Biography (12A)

Orlando, My Political Biography

Orlando, Ma Biographie Politique


Academic virtuoso turned filmmaker Paul B. Preciado's Berlin Film Festival award-winning documentary tells his and others' stories of transition through unique reenactments and visual interpretations of Virginia Woolf's ‘Orlando: A Biography’.


"Come, come! I'm sick to death of this particular self. I want another." Taking Virginia Woolf's novel ‘Orlando: A Biography’ as its starting point, Preciado has fashioned this documentary as a personal essay, historical analysis, and social manifesto which premiered and took home four prizes at the 2023 Berlin Film Festival. For almost a century, Woolf's eponymous hero/heroine has inspired readers for their gender fluidity across physical and spiritual metamorphoses over a 300-year lifetime. Not content to simply update a seminal work, Preciado interrogates the relevance of Orlando in the continuing struggle against anti-trans ideologies and in the fight for global trans rights.
