          In debt to the mob and in need of a new money making scheme to save his skin, greedy grindhouse film producer, Max Barber, (Robert Deniro) decides to produce a dangerous new film, all for the sake of killing his lead actor in a stunt so he can rake in the insurance money. But whe...n he casts Duke Montana, (Tommy Lee Jones) an aging, washed up movie star as the lead, Max never expects the depressed old drunk to be revitalised by being in front of the camera again. Unable to kill Duke in a basic stunt, Max ups the stakes, putting Duke into ever more dangerous situations. And as Duke survives stunt after stunt, Max unwittingly starts making the best movie of his career. A cross between Get Shorty and The Producers, THE COMEBACK TRAIL, is a fun journey through the underbelly of Hollywood. Littered with a cast of unforgettable and outrageous characters, it will have you giggling.

          Breaking Bad's RJ Mitte stars in this charming Australian rom-com about a loner with cerebral palsy who is roped into helping a comedian (Philippa Northeast) overcome her shyness. Mitte, who has cerebral palsy in real life, gives a winning performance as Travis, a young man livin...g in a ramshackle Sydney rental whose disability contributes to his social isolation and anger management issues. When he loses his maintenance job after lashing out at bullies, Travis ends up in a pub, where he puts his withering sarcasm to good use defending Sunny a reluctant up-and-comer on the comedy circuit from a sexist heckler. Soon Mikey (Sam Reid), the pub's owner and Sunny's overbearing boyfriend, hires Travis to help train Sunny in the art of the comeback, and naturally sparks ensue along with romance and laughs aplenty. Standing Up for Sunny is a lively comedy with plenty to say about living with disability and discrimination.

          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.
