Broken Hallelujah
135m (M) Sex scenes, offensive language & drug use

The lives of three people collide in this Kiwi drama that is “not a love story but a story about love”.
Kirsty’s comfortable life is upended when she finds out how her husband, Gary, has been keeping their business afloat.

Francis, an unassuming man, is desperately trying to convince his wife Miranda to give their marriage another chance. Things have started to go wrong since she started her new TV show ‘Budget Blow Out’.

Lex, a young real estate agent – his heart set on the award for best salesman of the year – has just one last sale to clinch before he can beat four times winner Terry Fuller.

A single event collides their stories together. On an isolated beach the unexpected happens and in one profound moment they each realise how fragile and precious life can be.

Rock the Casbah
104m (M) Nudity and sexual references

Bittersweet, Moroccan drama chronicling a middle class family who reunite to mourn the death of their father (screen legend Omar Sharif), set over the three day period called for by Muslim tradition. As the family gather, sparks fly and dramatic secrets are unearthed.
“Set in an opulent villa in Tangiers, the film unfolds over the three days of the rites of mourning dictated by Muslim custom, following the death of a prominent magnate and family patriarch, Moulay Hassan (Sharif). The solemnity of the occasion is disrupted by the unexpected return of Sofia (Morjana Alaoui), the rebellious youngest daughter who left Morocco, against her father’s wishes, seeking an acting career in the US. Her sisters, Kenza (Lubna Azabal) and Miriam (Nadine Labaki), rattled by her unsettling antics, come to reconsider their life choices in moments of emotional reckoning. And as their father’s remains are prepared for burial, the three siblings find themselves unearthing some dramatic family secrets.” (Toronto International Film Festival)

Starring: Hiam Abbass, Nadine Labaki, Lubna Azabal, Morjana Alaoui, Omar Sharif, Raouia
