Genre: Drama
Cast: Ralph Fiennes, Felicity Jones and Kristin Scott Thomas 
Official Website: visit official website

Synopsis: 
Nelly (Felicity Jones), a happily-married mother and schoolteacher, is haunted by her past. Her memories, provoked by remorse and guilt, take us back in time to follow the story of her relationship with Charles Dickens (Ralph Fiennes) with whom she discovered an exciting but fragile complicity.

Dickens - famous, controlling and emotionally isolated within his success - falls for Nelly, who comes from a family of actors. The theatre is a vital arena for Dickens - a brilliant amateur actor - a man more emotionally coherent on the page or on stage, than in life. As Nelly becomes the focus of Dickens' passion and his muse, for both of them secrecy is the price, and for Nelly a life of "invisibility".

Healing is a powerful, moving story of redemption, the discovery of hope and the healing of the spirit - in the most unlikely place, for the most unique men, through the most unusual catalyst.

Near the end of his sentence he is sent to Won Wron, a low-security prison farm 200 km outside Melbourne in regional Victoria, where Senior Case Worker Matt Perry (Hugo Weaving) has established a unique program to rehabilitate broken men through giving them the responsibility for the rehabilitation of injured raptors - beautiful, fearsome proud eagles, falcons and owls.

Genre: Biography/Drama
Cast: Nicole Kidman, Tim Roth, Frank Langella, Parker Posey, Derek Jacobi and André Penvern. 
Official Website: visit official website

Synopsis: 

Set in 1962, six years after her celebrated Wedding of the Century, Grace of Monaco tells of a year in the life of one of the twentieth century's most iconic women - Grace Kelly - as she strived to reconcile her past and her present, a yearning for a return to the big screen with her newfound role as a mother of two, monarch of a European principality and wife to Prince Ranier III.

While contemplating overtures from Alfred Hitchcock to return to her career in Hollywood, Grace found herself plunged into a personal crisis when Rainier's modernisation of an ailing Monaco was halted by French President Charles de Gaulle - who tried to reclaim the principality for France by force. It was a crossroads for Grace's family, her marriage and her country, and her private life. It would become the moment in which a cinematic icon, an American far from home, would have to face a tough decision - return to her celebrated status as a movie star, globally loved and adored, or accept that she will never act again, embrace her new role and her new identity. From the director of La Vie en Rose, GRACE OF MONACO is a real-life fairytale, a sweeping romance and a portrait of the cinematic legend of Princess Grace.
