          Life loving 40-something La (Oscar nominee Berenice Bejo, The Artist) works in retail, and is happily married to Marc (Vincent Cassel), a conservative and somewhat insecure salesman. La has long been considered a dreamer by her know-it-all best friend Karine (the inimitable Flore...nce Foresti), who seems content enough with her advertising executive job and life with gentle giant Francis (Franois Damiens) and their two kids. But something is about to upset the intricate balance of this quartet. Over dinner one evening, La unexpectedly announces she is trying her hand at writing a novel, a declaration met with some bemusement; Marc is certainly unconvinced. Las burst of creativity triggers an apparently threatened Karine to pick up her own pen, and even Francis hilariously dusts off a long-abandoned artistic side. When Las book is picked up by a major publisher, great things seem assured if only her friends and husband can handle it. Those who enjoyed the Italian hit Perfect Strangers are sure to find this delicious tale of tested loyalties as equally winning. This is one to share with your own friends and partners; an opportunity to sit back and enjoy the sparks that fly on screen - and off.

          The Inbetweeners star Simon Bird's directorial debut is a funny, charming and wince-inducingly accurate adaptation of Joff Winterhart's graphic novel, with a soundtrack by Belle & Sebastian. Days of the Bagnold Summer sweetly draws you into the wobbly relationship between well-in...tentioned single librarian Sue Bagnold and her black-clad teenage son Daniel, who'd rather listen to Metallica than his mother. Daniel was meant to spend the summer in Florida visiting his dad, but is now stuck with Mum following the trip's cancellation. The film boasts supporting turns by Rob Brydon and Alice Lowe, but belongs to its two leads. Long-suffering Sue is sympathetically portrayed by Monica Dolan, with Earl Cave's Daniel a suitably lank-haired, pale-skinned picture of adolescent metal-head angst.

          A South Auckland petrol station is the setting for this independent drama about graveyard shift worker Tania (Sophie Henderson, also the film's writer and based on her one-woman stageplay), whose long nights are spent chipping away at the savings she needs to leave with her littl...e brother in search of their father. Raised Maori, Tania's bonds to her whanau underpin a life spent caring for her ailing mother during the day and preparing to take her brother Piwakawaka overseas. But as he leaves to pick kiwifruit and Tania is stuck at the gas station with a slack manager and an eagle-eyed regional supervisor, it seems she's not able to look after her family to the same extent. A product of the NZ Film Commission's Escalator scheme, this low-budget feature, shot in just 20 days, brings Henderson's piece to the big screen courtesy of first-time director Curtis Vowell
