New Zealand actress Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie is mesmerising as 13-year-old Tom living off the grid with her war vet father (Ben Foster) in this haunting new film from the director of Winter’s Bone.
"Leave No Trace tactfully tells an equally heart-warming and heart-breaking story of the unconditional love shared between father and daughter. Foster and McKenzie deliver raw, tender, captivating and transcending performances. The bond between them isn’t only compelling, it is inspiring… A profound story about love, family, loyalty, understanding, and compassion.” Tiffany Tchobanian, Film Threat
The Happy Prince
Friday 15 February 10.30am, 6pm & 8.15pm
This is Rupert Everett's directorial debut about the last days of Oscar Wilde. Everett gives a career defining performance as Wilde, physically and emotionally embodying the literary genius as he lives out his last days in exile in Europe. His body ailing and heavy, his mind spinning, he survives by falling back on the flamboyant irony and brilliant wit that defined him. As the film travels through Wilde's final act and journeys through England, France and Italy, desire and loyalty face off, the transience of lust is laid bare, and the true riches of love are revealed.
