Yesterday (M)
Yesterday, everyone knew The Beatles. Today, only Jack remembers their songs. He’s about to become a very big deal. From Academy Award®-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) and Richard Curtis, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually and Notting Hill, comes a rock-n-roll comedy about music, dreams, friendship, and the long and winding road that leads to the love of your life. Jack Malik (Himesh Patel, BBC’s Eastenders) is a struggling singer-songwriter in a tiny English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie (Lily James, Mama Mia! Here We Go Again). Then, after a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed … and he finds himself with a very complicated problem, indeed. Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, and with a little help from his steel-hearted American agent, Debra (Emmy winner Kate McKinnon), Jack’s fame explodes. But as his star rises, he risks losing Ellie — the one person who always believed in him. With the door between his old life and his new closing, Jack will need to get back to where he once belonged and prove that all you need is love.

Headstrong 17-year-old Baby Houseman (Jennifer Grey) hardly expects her family's usual summer vacation in the Catskills, New York, to be momentous. But then Baby spies Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze)...
Heavy Water (M)
TFF - Daffodils (CTC)
New Zealand pop star Kimbra is Maisie, a singer whose dying father (George Mason) opens up about his life, joys and sorrows of his relationship with her mother (Rose McIver, iZombie). Moved by his revelations, Maisie guides us through her parents’ wistful story with through beloved Kiwi classic songs by artists like Dave Dobbyn, Bic Runga, The Mutton Birds and Crowded House. The songs frame a tale that begins with a whirlwind teen romance in 1966 and continues through years of ups and downs, hard times and heartbreak.
TFF - Judy & Punch (CTC)
**Please join us at 6pm for the Opening Night reception** In a visceral and dynamic live-action reinterpretation of the famous 16th-century puppet show, writer-director Mirrah Foulkes turns the traditional story of Punch & Judy on its head and brings to life a fierce, blackly comic and epic female-driven revenge story, starring Mia Wasikowska. In a peculiar and unforgiving town; gripped by a frenzy of witch hunts and hangings, the townspeople revel in the drama and brutality of the trials and executions, while Judy and Punch endeavour to use their show to escape, with their new baby, to loftier means. Unfortunately, Punch succumbs to the seduction of the local tavern. Despairing at her husband’s weakness, Judy forces the hungover Punch to focus on his responsibilities and leaves him to mind their baby for a morning, the repercussions of which are disastrous for all. Special filmmaker guest, director Mirrah Foulkes, will join us for a Q&A following the screening.
TFF - The Biggest Little Farm (CTC)
When the barking of their beloved dog Todd leads to an eviction notice from their tiny LA apartment, John and Molly Chester make a choice that takes them out of the city and onto 200 acres in the foothills of Ventura County, naively endeavouring to build one of the most diverse farms of its kind.
TFF - Skin (CTC)
This true life redemption story of Bryon Widner, a young man raised by skinheads, for whom turning his back on hatred and violence meant undergoing painful and expensive operations to remove the tattoos that signified his terrible past life. Israeli director Nattiv beautifully elicits the finest performances from Australian actress Danielle Macdonald (Dumplin, Patti Cake$) as a sassy single mother and Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, Fantastic Four, Snowpiercer) as Byron. This film is one that perfectly captures how love ultimately triumphs against internal conflict and external threats.
TFF - The Third Wife (CTC)
May (Nguyễn Phương Trành My) is a teenager who, through an arranged marriage, becomes the third wife of prosperous rural landowner Hung. She quickly comes of age, learning what she can about sex, the strict patriarchal hierarchy of her society and ultimately pins all her hopes on becoming the first of Hung’s wives to bear him a son. Writer/director Mayfair based this feminist tale in part on her own family history, recruiting a splendid cast including the great Trần Nữ Yên Khê (The Scent of Green Papaya). With ravishing cinematography, The Third Wife brings the pastoral setting to life with a mix of lyricism and bracing immediacy.
TFF - Slam (CTC)
Ameena, a young hijab-wearing Australian of Palestinian origin, disappears one night after featuring in a slam poetry gathering in suburban Sydney. Across the world, an Australian air force fighter is shot down over Syria and the pilot is captured by IS. The two unconnected events wreak hell in the quiet suburban life of Ricky (Tariq, Ameena’s brother) who runs a neighbourhood hipster café with his wife Sally. In a climate of distrust and xenophobia, Ricky is forced to denounce his sister as an extremist.
TFF - Yuli (CTC)
A visual treat for ballet fans, this inspiring true story follows UK Royal Ballet’s first black dancer, Carlos Acosta, combining a loving account of his upbringing in his native Havana with glorious dance sequences that flesh out his life story. We follow Acosta’s impoverished childhood, his early struggles with his monumental talent and his stormy relationship with his father, who was as abusive as he was proud of his son's career.
TFF - Kursk (CTC)
Kursk is inspired by the unforgettable true story of the K-141 Kursk, a Russian flagship nuclear-powered submarine that sank to the bottom of the Barents Sea in August 2000. As 23 sailors fought for survival aboard the disabled sub, their families desperately battled bureaucratic obstacles and impossible odds to find answers and save them. With intricate camerawork and a strong cast (including Colin Firth and Matthias Schoenaerts) director Thomas Vinterberg (The Commune, The Hunt) takes us through the heartbreaking situations that occur both below and above the water, ultimately testing humanity in the face of tragedy.
TFF - Photograph (CTC)
Nawazuddin Siddqui (The Lunchbox, Lion) is Rafi, a street photographer in frenzied Mumbai, snapping improvised portraits for tourists at the city’s landmarks. When his ailing grandmother—who has always hoped that Rafi would start a family—comes to visit, he scrambles to appease her. A chance encounter with kind-hearted and lonely Miloni offers the perfect opportunity since she is happy to play along when Rafi asks her to be his pretend companion. A film based on beautifully resonant moments, director Ritesh Batra captures the thin line between hypothetical and real, longing and nostalgia.
