This film has been a monumental success in Australia: its highest grossing film of 2011 and its 7th best-selling movie of all time. It was part of the Official Selection at the Berlin Film Festival 2011, winning the Best Picture Award at the AACTA 2012 and taking an impressive six awards (including Best Film) at the Inside Film Australian Film Awards. The film follows the legendary life of an Australian kelpie dog who roams the harsh and uncompromising mining frontier, uniting a group of 'dirty, drunken' miners. Related in flashback form, we follow the canine as he journeys through Western Australia to find his master, played by Josh Lucas (Sweet Home Alabama), who dies in an accident.
Directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha), the fourth film in the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' series again stars Johnny Depp as the dashing Captain Jack Sparrow. Ex-fiancée Angelica Teach (Penelope Cruz) tricks him into coming aboard Blackbeard's ship in search for the Fountain of Youth. Arr, and all aboard me hearties! Brace yourselves as we plunge into the uncharted waters of 'On Stranger Tides': whose murky depths are unmapped and unknown, hiding the darkest and most terrifying of secrets, and the most feared of all creatures...Sorry, got a bit carried away there. Actually, the fourth film in the Pirates series is depressingly prosaic and predictable; disappointing, considering Jack Sparrow's smorgasbord of a shopping list. The search for two chalices, a mermaid's tear, a victim and the Fountain of Youth is actually pretty straightforward, and lacks the entertainment and epic scale displayed by the previous films.
Retired special-ops agent (Jason Statham) must leave his peaceful life and do some more murdering in order to free his mentor (Robert De Niro). Meanwhile, he’s being tracked by former SAS operative (Clive Owen) who works for a shadowy organization known as The Feathermen.
“A couple (Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz) relocates their family to a quaint New England town. But as they settle into their new life, they discover their perfect home was the murder scene of a mother and her children. And the entire city believes it was at the hands of the husband who survived. When Will investigates the tragedy, his only lead comes from Ann Paterson (Naomi Watts), a neighbour who was close to the family that died. As Will and Ann piece together the disturbing puzzle, they discover that the story of the last man to leave Will's dream house will be just as horrifying to the one who came next."
'Attenbeeerg'. Bella's drawling mispronunciation of Sir David's surname provides the title and central theme for this thought-provoking film. Tsangari places the audience firmly into Attenborough's scientific shoes as she quietly observes her characters against the bleak industrial backdrop of Aspra Spitia and the hospital's cancer-ward corridors, capturing everything from the everyday to the extraordinary.
