A love story unlike anything you've heard before

New Zealand musical romance inspired by a true story and adapted from a stage show, featuring reworkings of classic Kiwi songs from the likes of Crowded House, Bic Runga, Dave Dobbyn, Darcy Clay and the Mint Chicks. Starring Rose McIver, George Mason and Kimbra, and from the award-winning director of Belief: The Possession of Janet Moses.

Leaving her dying father’s bedside, singer Maisie (Kimbra) rushes to perform at an indie music gig in town. But as she sings the opening song, it’s hard for her to ignore the heartfelt story she’s just been told – the story of how her dad met and fell in love with her mother, and how it all devastatingly fell apart. As the night goes on, we see the love story of Eric (Mason) and Rose (McIver) through Maisie's eyes. From the time they meet in Hamilton in 1966 to their separation in the 1980s, we follow the bittersweet nuances of a couple’s life, expressed with contemporary re-imaginings of iconic New Zealand hit songs

The untold story of the greatest comedy act the world has ever seen

Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly play comedy duo Laurel and Hardy in this biopic that covers the duo's 1953 British variety hall tour. Written by Oscar nominee Jeff Pope (Philomena).

"In 1953, several years after their last film and with their immense celebrity on the wane, Stan ‘Laurel’ and Ollie ‘Hardy’ embark on a gig tour of British seaside towns and music halls. Surprised by the modesty of the bookings and cramped little guesthouses, the tour starts off subdued. They struggle for audiences and their booking agent seems disinterested. But a series of TV guest spots and celebrity appearances soon rekindle the country’s interest in their genius and the buzz grows as they head towards a big London finale. As the attention builds, so too do old resentments, coming to a head as they’re joined by ‘the wives’, Lucille and Ida (Shirley Henderson and Nina Arianda)" (London Film Festival).
