Fleeing to America after escaping her Nazi sympathiser husband, Hedy Lamarr then conquered Hollywood. Executive produced by Susan Sarandon, this is the ultimate portrait of Hollywood wild-child, Hedy Lamarr. Known as 'the most beautiful woman in the world', she was infamous for her marriages and affairs with everyone from Spencer Tracy to JFK. This film rediscovers her, not only as an actress, but as the brilliant mind who co-invented 1940's wireless technology. find out more...

A strange and often engaging mixture of pseudo documentary and downright fiction starring Naomi Watts as Ellie Parker, an aspiring actress struggling to deal with the day to day humiliations, set backs and frustrations of her chosen career.

Perhaps Antonioni's most beautiful film and certainly one of his most accomplished.

Highly individualistic. find out more...

Certification18 Our Rating

If you thought Hedwig and the Angry Inch was a film unlike any other you'd seen before, get ready for Shortbus: a frank and fun film about the sex lives of humans, ostensibly set in New York, but relevant to every one of us. The plot plays a supporting role in what is, in many ways, a beautifully disguised self-help documentary. Sex therapist Sofia (played by Canadian radio star, Sook-Yin Lee) has frequent, athletic (yet frustratingly unfulfilling) intercourse with her boyfriend. Her seeming ina find out more...

CertificationPG Our Rating

All time classic wonderfully filmed by Wilder, featuring great performances from Holden, as a bankrupt screenwriter seeking refuge, and Swanson, a faded star in a crumbling mansion, who pins her hopeless hopes of a comeback on the writer. Deliriously dark and nightmarish masterpiece. find out more...
