The Lord Of The Flies
With “sharply expressive performances” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) by its young cast, this stunning adventure explores the deep, dark corners of the human soul, as a group of adolescent castaways are thrust into an intense world where law and accountability are governed by the rules of survival.
After a harrowing plane crash into the sea, a group of American military cadets finds itself marooned on a deserted island. Realising the minimal chances of being rescued, the boys band together out of fear and desperation. But as the island paradise becomes their own, competition and power struggles split them into two packs. Ralph (Balthazar Getty) leads one group and preaches civilized ingenuity and togetherness, but Jack (Chris Furrh) wants nothing of it and builds a faction of barbaric hunters who ultimately go to war with Ralph. This powerful shift in conscience transforms ordinary kids into primal killers, setting off a devastating battle of good versus evil and presenting a haunting metaphor for the savage in us all.
Oscar winners Anthony Hopkins and Mel Gibson lead a stellar cast that includes Sir Laurence Olivier, Daniel Day Lewis and Liam Neeson in this action packed adventure bursting with sensational battles, raging storms and an intensity as powerful as the mighty sea itself! Bristling with commanding performances, blazing dialogue and ?superb action scenes? (Los Angeles Times), this movie is everything that a high-adventure fan could wan.
Hopkins stars as William Bligh, a real life sea captain who, in 1787, steered The Bounty on a 27,000 mile voyage into danger, chaos and madness. After 31 days of battling severe sea squalls and Bligh?s ever increasing cruelty, the weary crew is relieved to finally and on a remote island. But soon their tyrannical captain wants to sail again and the desperate men turn to first mate Fletcher Christian (Gibson) to help take the ship by force or die trying.
Passage To India
Enter a world where cultures clash so violently that an entire country could split at any moment. Nominated for eleven Academy Awards and winner of two, David Lean's final movie A Passage To India is a wonderfully provocative tale, full of vivid characters, all played to perfection. With a fabulous cast that includes Peggy Ashcroft, Judy Davis, James Fox, Sir Alec Guinness, and Nigel Havers, this hauntingly beautiful film is an artistic triumph. When liberal-minded English ladies Mrs Moore (Ashcroft) and Adela Quested (Davis) arrive in India, they're shocked by the extreme racial prejudice that exists there.
Fortunately, kind Dr Aziz (Victor Banerjee) rises above the intolerance and guides the women on a splendid tour of the mysterious Marabar caves. But the outing turns tragic when Adela suddenly comes running from one of the caves - scratched, bleeding and terribly frightened. News of the incident quickly spreads across the whole of India... igniting a powder keg of tension just waiting to explode. A rich tapestry woven of the clash between two cultures, A Passage To India is supreme entertainment and a visual wonder that is truly spellbinding.
