A delightful MGM musical featuring Judy Garland, Meet Me in St Louis follows the well-to-do Smith family in the months leading up to the St Louis World's Fair in 1904. Told as a series of seasonal vignettes beginning in summer 1903, the story details the romances of the Smith’s oldest daughters, their excitement over the upcoming celebrations, and their dejection at the thought of leaving St Louis when Mr Smith is offered a promotion in New York. Features the yuletide classic ‘Have yourself a merry little Christmas’

Mel Gibson directs and stars in this thirteenth-century Scottish epic, which tells the story of William Wallace and the First War of Scottish Independence against King Edward I of England. Raised in Rome after the murder of his family, Wallace returns to Scotland and is reunited with his childhood sweetheart. When she is ruthlessly murdered by English noblemen, Wallace leads a revolt against English forces. Although historically inaccurate, Braveheart won five Academy Awards in 1996 including Best Director and Best Picture.
Suggested by Mark Covington:
‘‘We all end up dead, it’s just a question of how and why. Every man dies, not every man really lives. I am William Wallace!” Every now and then we need a little inspiration in our lives and Braveheart delivers in spades.'
Set against the vast Australian outback, geologist Sandy (Toni Collette) grudgingly agrees to chauffeur a potential investor from Japan (Gotaro Tsunashima) around various iron ore sites in the Pilbara. When they become stranded in remote terrain, the mismatched couple begin to navigate their cultural differences to find a common ground. A quiet, complex film about human relationships, in which the harsh beauty of the Australian outback landscape is stunningly captured by cinematographer Ian Baker.
Directed by Teller of Penn & Teller fame, Tim’s Vermeer documents the journey of Tim Jenison, a Texas-based inventor who undertakes an eight-year odyssey to uncover the ‘technology’ used by Dutch master Johannes Vermeer (1632–75) in the creation of his near-photorealistic paintings. Convinced they were painted with the help of optical interventions, Jenison sets out to recreate The Music Lesson (circa 1662) literally from the ground up.
