Synopsis: 

Mr. Morgan’s Last Love is the bittersweet tale of a lonely American widower in Paris who learns to love life again after a chance encounter with a beautiful and vibrant young woman. They both spend a short but precious time together – a time that touches their hearts and changes their lives.

From the day Pauline lends him a helping hand on the bus, the stubborn, weary Matthew Morgan stumbles back to happiness. Swept off his old feet by the young woman’s disarming vitality and unwavering optimism, the quiet teacher becomes an unlikely student of living. In their everyday adventures of walks through Paris, lunches in the park, and trips to the country, the odd couple explores the treasures of friendship, the comfort of companionship, the taste of romance – and the meaning of family. Through their mutual restoration of faith in people who care, Pauline embraces the idea of a new kind of family while Matthew finally reconnects with his estranged son Miles, who in turn finds himself deeply affected by the changes in his father. What begins as Miles’ and his sister Karen’s frustrated attempt to bring Matthew home to the US, leads to consequences in Miles’ own life that he never expected. Just in time, father and son learn to respect each other again, to let go of the past and let in the future – and in their life lessons, they each in their own way find love and hope again

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.

Against all odds, Matt takes on Viktor as his number one test case, introducing him to Yasmine, the majestic Wedge-tailed Eagle with a two metre wingspan. If these two can tame each other, anything is possible.

Inspired by true events, Healing is a new Australian film written and directed by Craig Monahan, the multi-award winning director of The Interview - Winner of Best Film - Australian Film Institute Awards.
