Onward with Dan Scanlon | Picturehouse
Sam Clements talks to director Dan Scanlon about Pixar's newest film, Onward. In cinemas now.
Set in a suburban fantasy world where dragons are house pets and unicorns are common pests, Pixar’s Onward follows two teenage elf brothers on a quest to spend one last day with their father.
Neither Ian nor Barley Lightfoot (Tom Holland and Chris Pratt) are old enough to remember their dad, who died when they were very young, but the unexpected gift of a wizard’s staff gives them the chance to revive his spirit for 24 hours. After their first attempt at sorcery goes wrong and only resurrects a pair of sentient trousers, Ian and Barley go an adventure across fairy-tale suburbia to complete the spell and fulfil their wish of meeting the father they never knew.
Dark Waters with Todd Haynes | Picturehouse
Sam Clements talks to director Todd Haynes about his new film, Dark Waters. A tenacious attorney uncovers a dark secret that connects a growing number of unexplained deaths due to one of the world’s largest corporations. In the process, he risks everything – his future, his family and his own life – to expose the truth. Corporate environmental defence attorney Rob Bilott (Mark Ruffalo) has just made partner at his prestigious Cincinnati law firm, in large part due to his work defending Big Chem companies. Soon he’s contacted by two West Virginia farmers who believe that the local DuPont plant is dumping toxic waste which is destroying their fields and killing their cattle. Hoping to learn the truth, Bilott, with help from his supervising partner in the firm, Tom Terp (Tim Robbins), files a complaint that marks the beginning of an epic 15-year fight – one that will not only test his relationship with his wife, Sarah (Anne Hathaway) but also his reputation, his health and his livelihood.
True History Of The Kelly Gang with George Mackay | Picturehouse
Sam Clements talks to actor George Mackay (1917, Pride) about his new film True History Of The Kelly Gang. In cinemas now.
Based on Peter Carey’s Booker Prize-winning novel, Justin Kurzel’s True History Of The Kelly Gang shatters the mythology surrounding Ned Kelly to reveal the essence behind the life of the notorious icon.
Hero to some, outlaw to others, Kelly throws a long shadow over a specific period of Australian history. Spanning his life from his younger years to the time leading up to his death, the film explores the story behind this legendary figure.
Nurtured by the notorious bushranger Harry Power (Russell Crowe) and fuelled by the unfair arrest of his mother (Essie Davis), Kelly (George MacKay, 1917) recruits a wild bunch of warriors to plot a campaign of anarchy and rebellion that will grip the entire country. Youth and tragedy collide in the Kelly Gang, and at the beating heart of this tale is the fractured and powerful love story between a mother and son.
Little Joe with Emily Beecham | Picturehouse
Sam Clements talks to Emily Beecham about her role in the new film by director Jessica Hausner, Little Joe.
Little Joe follows Alice (Emily Beecham), a single mother and dedicated senior plant breeder at a corporation engaged in developing new species. She has engineered a special crimson flower, remarkable not only for its beauty but also for its therapeutic value: if kept at the ideal temperature, fed properly and spoken to regularly, this plant makes its owner happy. Against company policy, Alice takes one home as a gift for her teenage son, Joe. They christen it ‘Little Joe’. But as their plant grows, so too does Alice’s suspicion that her new creation may not be as harmless as its nickname suggests.
