- Forrest Gump
Available until 31 Jan 2018
Robert Zemeckis' whimsical, sextuple Oscar-winning fable stars Tom Hanks as an idiot-savant who leads a charmed existence over four turbulent decades of US history. A fable for modern times, the offbeat tale captures both the imagination and the eye, thanks in no small part to a supporting cast that includes Gary Sinise as Forrest's grumpy Vietnam leader (and Reddit favourite), Lt. Dan and Robin Wright Penn as his troubled sweetheart. Light, dark, bitter and sweet... it's not unlike a box of chocolates.
- Anna and the King
Available until 30 Jun 2017
The classic story behind the musical The King & I gets a sumptuous makeover with Jodie Foster as the English schoolmarm who tries to civilise the formidable King Mongkut of Siam (Chow Yun-Fat). Exquisite performances from Foster, Bai Ling (as the beautiful concubine Tuptim) and especially Chow Yun-Fat - previously known as Hong Kong's foremost action hero - ensure that this non-musical version is every bit as captivating as the all-singing, all-dancing affair. Look out for a young Tom 'Malfoy' Felton as Anna's son.
- The New World
Available until 31 Dec 2017
The classic tale of the native American princess Pocahontas gets a typically weighty retelling by legendary filmmaker Terrence Malick. Newcomer Q'Orianka Kilcher plays the chief's daughter who falls in love with Colin Farrell's English mercenary John Smith against the backdrop of the colonisation of America in the early 1600s. Rich in atmosphere and performance, Malick delivers the visual goods in an evocative recreation of story, place and era.
- The Pursuit of Happyness
Available until 13 Dec 2016
In the early 1980s, struggling salesman Chris Gardner dedicated himself to winning a stockbroking internship... despite living on the streets and taking sole care of his young son. Wonderfully engaging performances from Will Smith and his real-life sprog Jaden - truly a chip off the old block - form the magnetic core of this heartening true tale. BAFTA-winning Londoner Thandie Newton co-stars as Gardner's remonstrative wife.
