Jennifer Lawrence reteams with fellow American Hustlers and Silver Linings Playbookers Bradley Cooper and (writer-director) David O. Russell for this offbeat biopic about Joy Mangano, the entrepreneurial young mother who made her fortune as the inventor of... the Miracle Mop. But don't touch that dial, because Russell's depiction of Joy's fights against adversity at home (with dysfunctional dad Robert De Niro and the rest of her family) and on the professional front (with dodgy suppliers and Cooper's teleshopping mogul) turns what sounds like a mundane rags-to-riches story into a work of genuine inspiration. Quality performances and feelgood moments guaranteed.

Director: David O. Russell

Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Elisabeth Röhm, Dascha Polanco, Virginia Madsen, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd

    Available until 31 Jan 2018

    With an absent husband, a wayward teenage daughter, and a dead-end job in a Taiwanese sweatshop, Ling (Shiang-Chyi Chen) feels increasingly lonely and frustrated. Her state of mind is not helped by the prospect of early menopause and the doomful forecasts of her hospitalised mother-in-law. But she finds an escape through her dreams of ballroom dancing... and a tenderly cultivated relationship with one of the hospital's more vulnerable patients. A nuanced and bittersweet drama with an award-winning performance from the captivating Chen.

  • Sideways

    Available until 30 Jun 2018

    Director Alexander Payne's bittersweet tale of a loser on a wine-sodden road trip bears similarities to his earlier effort, About Schmidt, yet is even more painfully observant and much, much funnier. The Paul Giamatti / Thomas Hayden Church combo is an on-screen pairing that works like a dream when, during an eventful week, they pair up with locals Maya (Virginia Madsen) and Stephanie (Sandra Oh) and land themselves in all manner of bacchanalian bother. The screenplay Oscar it picked up was one of the best-deserved in years.

  • The Fisher King
    The Fisher King

    Available until 01 Apr 2019

    Visionary director Terry Gilliam strikes gold with this supremely emotional tale of love and redemption. Jeff Bridges is terrific as a radio DJ on the downslide whose life is turned around when he meets a crazy-wise vagrant Robin Williams with an intriguing past of his own. Mercedes Ruehl is an Oscar-winning dervish as Bridges' beyond-sassy girlfriend. The explosive chemistry between the leads makes for a truly mesmeric watch, allied to some memorable moments from Gilliam including a mass flash-waltz in New York's Central Station.

  • Demolition

    Available until 21 Feb 2018

    When his wife is killed in a car accident, New York investment banker Davis (Jake Gyllenhaal) is struck emotionally numb by grief.

But while she provides an honest sounding board during his rebuilding process, his father-in-law and boss (Chris Cooper) grows ever more frustrated with Davis's perceived lack of empathy. Soul-searching drama from Wild and Dallas Buyers Club director Jean-Marc Vallee.
