Weekly Watch List

Sharing Is Caring

23 April

We’ll be sharing cinema together again soon, but until then, Palace Cinemas wants to share some of our film favourites with our Weekly Watch List.  Here’s to sharing and staying safe.

 

ADAPTATION (2002) | Spike Jonze

People seem to forget that Nicolas Cage is a truly GREAT actor. In ADAPTATION, he’s twice as good… Original, hilarious, thought-provoking, meta upon meta, this film is one of a kind, nothing adapted about it…

“Blurs the lines between truth, fiction and bald-faced lies with innovative, breathtaking abandon.” Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun.

Rent it on iTunes, Google Play or Youtube.

 

THE FIRST WIVES CLUB (1996) | Hugh Wilson

Sorry but this one the majority of critics got wrong on initial release and has withstood the test of time. Lead by three comic geniuses, this uproarious satire is filled with an exuberant spirit impossible to resist.

“It’s a glamorous revenge romp, a 9 to 5 mixed with Auntie Mame, and it gives each star the opportunity to do her best work.” Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle.

Rent it on itunes, Google Play or Youtube or stream on Netflix or Foxtel Now.

 

MY BRILLIANT CAREER (1979) | Gillian Armstrong

A young woman who lives wither grandmother and aunt in the Australian countryside rebels against the pressure of being married and chooses to focus on her career as a writer. My Brilliant Career made a big splash on the international scene and launched Judy Davis and director Gillain Armstrong alongside an early performance from Sam Neill, it remains a gem of Australian independent cinema.

“It’s hard to imagine a film filled with more quiet integrity, intelligent passion, realistic drama and genuine entertainment than Gillian Armstrong’s My Brilliant Career.” Michael Blowen, Boston Globe.

Rent it on iTunes, Google Play or Youtube.

 

A PROPHET (2010) | Jacques Audiard

A PROPHET follows an illiterate 19-year-old who is sent to prison for a six-year sentence. Cornered by the leader of the Corsican gang ruling the prison, he is given several “missions” to gain the gang leader’s confidence but also places himself in immense danger to complete them. This incredible French gangster film is filled with arresting, immediate and intimate details of life on the inside and led by an inspiring breakout performance by Tahar Rahim.

“An answered prayer for those who believe that revitalizing classic forms with contemporary attitudes makes for the most compelling kind of cinema.” Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times.

Rent it on iTunes, Google Play or Youtube.

CLUELESS (1995) | Amy Heckerling

Centred around a popular high-school student playing matchmaker, Clueless is a clever retelling of Jane Austin’s “Emma” with a subtle satire that pokes fun at both teen films and the Beverly Hills elite. This 90’s cult-classic is a feel-good romantic comedy that has as many quotable lines as iconic outfits.

“The movie is aimed at teenagers, but like all good comedies, it will appeal to anyone who has a sense of humor and an ear for the ironic.” Roger Ebert, Chicago Times

Rent it on iTunes, Google Play or Youtube or stream on Netflix.
