Classic Powell and Pressburger drama about an aspiring ballerina who is presented with a stark choice between her artistic ambitions and the man she loves.

Will the young ballerina be able to choose between her two great loves?

A superb ensemble cast falls in for action in Stanley Kubrick's brilliant saga about the Vietnam War and the dehumanizing process that turns people into trained killers.
Joker, Animal Mother, Gomer, Eightball, Cowboy and more - all are plunged into a boot-camp hell pitbulled by a leatherlung D.I. who views the would-be devil dogs as grunts, maggots or something less.
The action is savage, the story unsparing, the dialogue spiked with scathing humor. Full Metal Jacket, from its rigours of basic training to its nightmare of combat in Hue City, scores a cinematic direct hit.
In this witty, satirical farce, three secretaries live every female worker's dream after discovering they share the same resentment towards their egotistical, sexist boss.

The Wanderers are an Italian-American teenage gang living in the Bronx in 1963, clashing with their rivals The Baldies and the Duckie Boys. Director Philip Kaufman soundtracks the turf battles and rites of passage narrative with plenty of rock'n'roll.
Gentle Ealing comedy about childhood, guilt and half-truths starring a young James Fox (then known by his real name, William Fox) as Johnny Brent, a mischievous boy who tricks a younger boy (Keith Robinson) into giving him his magnet in return for an 'invisible' clock. Having successfully obtained the magnet, Johnny immediately starts to feel guilty about his swindling behaviour.

On their way home from a high school football game, five teenage girls become hopelessly lost. When they stop to get directions, the girls are involved in a minor accident with another vehicle.

As the driver of the damaged car begins one terrifying assault after another the five girls will lose their innocence and possibly their lives in this brutal and shocking thrill ride.
Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie were among the most successful acts of the alternative comedy show Saturday Live/Friday Night Live and after a Christmas pilot in 1987, the BBC commissioned a series in 1989.
Fry and Laurie explored a seemingly inexhaustible list of subjects with a delicious turn of phrase and elaborate wordplay. The hilarity-included regular acts such as not so super spy Tony Mercheson and his boss Control, yuppies, John and Peter, as well as the concluding cocktail recipe to the accompaniment of Mr Music with plenty of Vox Pops.
With four brilliant seasons of great satire, comic genius and an hilarious use of language, Fry and Laurie are definitely at the top of the comedy tree.
David Lean's classic adaptation of Charles Dickens' novel. Oliver (John Howard Davis) is a young orphan boy who is expelled from the workhouse run by Mr Bumble (Francis L. Sullivan). After becoming an apprentice to an undertaker Oliver decides to run away to London, only to meet the Artful Dodger (Anthony Newley) and fall amongst his gang of thieves, led by the scheming Fagin (Alec Guinness).
One of the most controversial films in cinema history, Soldier Blue follows the adventures of Honus and Cresta, the only remaining survivors of a Cheyenne Indian attack, as they journey across the unforgiving wilderness of the old west in search of refuge.
A life changing journey that reaches a tragic climax as they bare witness to the relentlessly brutal and cold-blooded slaughter of the Cheyenne tribe.
Reflecting the political climate of the time, Soldier Blue is uncompromising in its anti-war stance and its extremely graphic and savage depiction of the Sand Creek Massacre of 1864.
