- 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.
- Bridge of Spies
Available until 20 Sep 2017
Steven Spielberg's gripping slice of Cold War history stars Tom Hanks as James Donovan, an insurance lawyer who agrees to defend alleged Russian spy Rudolf Abel (the Oscar-winning Mark Rylance) following his arrest in 1957. After saving Abel from the death penalty, Donovan is sent to Berlin to arrange his exchange for a captured US pilot whose U2 spy plane was shot down over Russia. But with an American student also held in East Berlin, Donovan insists on making it a two-for-one deal... Conveying the mood of the era through exceptional performances, direction and design, this is drama of the highest class.
- The Sea Inside
Available until 31 May 2017
Javier Bardem delivers a career-defining performance as Ramon Sampedro, a paralysed ex-sailor who spent 28 years fighting for the right to end his own life. Under the masterly direction of Alejandro Amenabar, Bardem inhabits the skin of the quadraplegic crusader without the merest hint of dramatic vanity or emotional contrivance. A compassionate yet unmanipulative telling of a remarkable true story, there have been few more worthy winners of the Best Foreign Film Oscar.
- A Passage to India
Available until 01 Apr 2019
David Lean's Oscar-winning account of EM Forster's novel sees Judy Davis playing a young Englishwoman who goes to 1920s India with her fiancé's mother (Peggy Ashcroft). Dazed and confused, she brings a charge of rape against a friendly young Indian doctor (Victor Banerjee). Lean's last movie proves to be one of his best with Alec Guinness offering typically splendid support and Dame Peggy deservedly winning an Oscar.
- A Tale of Love and Darkness
Available until 14 Mar 2018
Natalie Portman makes her directorial debut and stars in this absorbing adaptation of Israeli author Amos Oz's autobiographical account of his relationship with his doting, long-suffering mother Fania (played by Portman herself). Told in Hebrew, the movie follows Amos's beginnings as a writer to the end of the British Mandate for Palestine and the early years of the State of Israel. It's Portman's film but Amir Tessler shines as the young Amos.
