The Hundred-Foot Journey
Director Lasse Hallström's (Chocolat) adaptation of the Richard C. Morais novel about the rivalry between an Indian restaurant that is 100 feet away from a three-Michelin-star bistro in the south of France. Produced by Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey, starring Oscar-winner Helen Mirren (The Queen).
Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie
The irreverent BBC sitcom gets the big screen treatment. Created by and starring comedian Brendan O'Carroll, and based on O'Carroll's stageplays, our heroine is the big-hearted, outspoken Irish mammy named Agnes Brown. When Moore Street market-trader Agnes Brown finds her livelihood under threat from a ruthless developer, she and her family embark on a campaign to save her stall, aided as only the Browns will be by a motley troop of blind trainee Ninjas, an alcoholic solicitor, and a barrister with Tourettes Syndrome.
The Dark Horse
Cliff Curtis (Whale Rider, Sunshine) leads this true Kiwi story as Genesis Potini, the speed-chess prodigy from New Zealand who battled severe bipolar disorder for years. Co-stars James Rolleston (Boy), Kirk Torrance (Stickmen) and Miriama McDowell (No. 2).
