The Tree

We’ve got some great films for you this week. From heartwarmers to a sci-fi to an emotional journey… there’s something for everyone.

The Tree

This story, based on an Ausie film “Oh Father Who Art in the Tree”, stars Charlotte Gainsborough and Marton Csokas (from films like Lord of the Rings, Aeon Flux and The Bourne Supremacy) and is directed by Julie Bertucelli (who also directed “Since Otar Left”).

The trailer looks great and the story looks truly heartwarming, not to mention it has an excellent cast! The story follows a family after the tragic death of the father and we can’t wait for this one to come out on Friday!

Check out the trailer here!

We’ve heard great things about this latest film from Stephen Spielberg and J.J.Abrams

It features Elle Fanning (sister of Dakota) and Joel Courtney as two kids (and their best friends) in 1979 who watch as a truck runs straight into a train which starts a string of bizarre happenings all around their little town. So of course, they start exploring trying to solve the mystery. A bit monster- movie-horror, a bit bit sci-fi, and even a bit of summer romance makes this flick a must see! I loved it.

Also, make sure you stay thru the credits there is a fab (and hilarious) bonus for people who know their horror film history!

Sarah’s Key

I saw this film the other day and it’s an emotional rollercoaster. It’s hard to watch at times but definitely worth catching at the cinema if you’re in the mood to be contemplative.

Starring Kristin Scott Thomas, this film shows Sarah, a 10-year-old girl living with her parents and younger brother in Paris in 1942, when French authorities arrest them and other Jewish families and send them to Nazi prison camps.

In present day Paris, Journalist Julia Armond is determined to bring to light the little-known event in French history. She becomes obsessed with finding Sarah, who she believes was not killed in a concentration camp, and goes on a hunt to discover what became of her after the infamous Vel’ d’Hiv Roundup.
