SYNOPSIS:

Anya Taylor-Joy, Nicholas Hoult, and Ralph Fiennes star in the delectably dark new black comedy that gives the culture of haute cuisine a thorough roasting. A searingly sharp satire from director Mark Mylod, this twisted tale centred on a destination-dining experience with unexpected surprises will keep you on your toes and knock your socks off. See it first at Dendy with a complimentary glass of sparkling on arrival!

A young couple (Taylor-Joy and Hoult) travel to a coastal island in the Pacific Northwest to eat at an exclusive restaurant, Hawthorn, where the reclusive, globally celebrated Chef Julian Slowik (Fiennes) has prepared a lavish tasting menu for select special guests, with plenty of shocking surprises.

Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. Power hungry warrior and Machiavellian murderess or grief-stricken parents with a painful void to fill?

Returning home from a bloody but victorious battle, Macbeth is met by the Weird Sisters who foretell that he will become King of Scotland. Emboldened by this prediction, the Macbeths take fate into their own hands, murder King Duncan and take the crown.

But the crown sits uneasily and their initial act of ambition and unquenchable desire for power set off a catastrophic series of events that once in motion, cannot be stopped.

Helped by his switchboard operator Mary, a new young producer Dylan and an intern June, he faces every situation with ease, experience, and charisma. He solves the problems of his listeners with his iconic voice and strong repartee. He has an opinion on everything and dives into any type of discussion. One night, he receives a call from Gary who is about to do something dramatic. Gary will take Elvis on a journey he will never forget.

SYNOPSIS:

Cecilia (Sissy) and Emma were tween-age BFFs who were going to grow old together and never let anything come between them. That is, until Emma’s new friend Alex did just that. When Cecilia became the target of Alex’s bullying, her act of self-defense left Alex horrifically wounded and forced Cecilia and Emma apart. Twelve years later, Cecilia is a successful social media influencer living the dream of an independent, modern millennial woman… until she runs into Emma for the first time in over a decade and her world is turned upside down. Emma invites Cecilia away on her hen’s weekend at a remote cabin in the mountains, much to the dismay of maid of honour Alex, whose scarred face has only further cemented her grudge against ‘Sissy the sissy’ after all these years. Alex proceeds to make Cecilia’s weekend a living hell – until Cecilia snaps. Unnervingly savage, SISSY is a satirical look at millennial self-victimisation in the social media age.

The Bluff transports you to a seaside town at the bottom of Australia, where ladies gather in the tearoom of the church charity shop as their familiar world whirls around them like clockwork. When the pillar of the town Charles Fortsmith goes missing, his wife is left to face the community he left behind. She must decide between hope and truth, undeterred by the watchful eye of righteous neighbours.

Watch as the salty air erodes the town’s comfortable facade, and the grotesque underbelly is revealed. An examination of what we bury to be part of something bigger than ourselves.

Releasing to Digital, DVD and Blu-Ray on October 19

SYNOPSIS:

Recently discovered and restored 46 years after its completion, George A. Romero’s The Amusement Park stars MARTIN’s Lincoln Maazel as an elderly man who finds himself disoriented and increasingly isolated as the pains, tragedies, and humiliations of aging in America are manifested through roller coasters and chaotic crowds. Commissioned by the Lutheran Society, the film is perhaps Romero’s wildest and most imaginative movie– an allegory about the nightmarish realities of growing older, and an alluring snapshot of the filmmaker’s early artistic capacity and style.

See you in the park, someday

Run time: 55 mins

Release Date: October 19, 2022

Rated: M – Mature Themes 

RRP DVD: $19.98

RRP Blu-Ray: $26.98
