Entertainment Hive 2017

Blockbuster British Film Festival

Screening exclusively at Palace Nova Eastend Cinemas from October 25 until November 15, the Cunard British Film Festival is back for its fifth year and highlights from its 2017 program promise not to disappoint. This year’s blockbuster line-up will feature a spread of British cinematic delights from sweeping romances and beloved book adaptations, to intriguing music documentaries and pulse racing thrillers – all featuring a variety of British cinema royalty, as well as the next wave of British talent lighting up the screen.       The festival will also feature a special curated retrospective, CLASSIC CLUES – SOLVING A BRITISH MYSTERY - a six film program which includes four Agatha Christie classics, all selected to capture the intrigue and suspense of a classic British mystery.   The festival will open with the Australian premiere of actor Andy Serkis’ (The Lord of the Rings, Planet of the Apes) directorial debut BREATHE, which comes straight from opening the 61 st  BFI London Film Festival. Starring Oscar nominated Andrew Garfield (Hacksaw Ridge, The Amazing Spider-Man) and Claire Foy (The Crown) BREATHE is the inspiring true story of a couple who refuse to give up in the face of a devastating illness. This is a heart-warming celebration of human possibility and two indomitable spirits, who defy the odds to pave the way for change. Other highlights include: TULIP FEVER, based on the international bestselling novel by Deborah Moggach (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), a tale of art, beauty, lust, greed, deception and retribution - starring Academy Award winners Alicia Vikander and Christoph Waltz, and featuring acclaimed British actress Judy Dench, Jack O’Connell, comedian Zach Galifianakis and model turned actress Cara Delevingne. ON CHESIL BEACH, starring Saoirse Ronan (Brooklyn, BFF 15) and Billy Howle (Dunkirk) in the adaptation of Ian McEwan’s unforgettable novel about a young couple on their honeymoon is the directorial debut from former Royal Court Theatre head Dominic Cooke, which comes together as a beautifully precise anatomy of thwarted desire. The highly anticipated and delightful GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN also features as part of the program. Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, About Time) and Australian actress Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street, Suicide Squad) star in this rare glimpse into the relationship between beloved children’s author A. A. Milne (Gleeson) and his son Christopher Robin, who inspired ‘Winnie the Pooh’. This is just a taste of the Cunard British Film Festival 2017 program. Tickets are on sale now!
