Justin Chadwick directs this award-winning biopic of the former South African President and key anti-apartheid activist Nelson Mandela. Idris Elba stars as Mandela, who grows up in a nation divided by racial segregation laws but doesn't become politicised until his university years. While training as a lawyer, Mandela becomes increasingly aware of the injustice suffered by black South Africans in a country run almost exclusively by whites. His relationships with like-minded spirits such as his wife Winnie (Naomie Harris) fuel his radicalism and lead him into a conflict with the authorities that sees him imprisoned on Robben Island with other anti-apartheid activists for over a decade. With unrest growing throughout the nation, Mandela becomes an increasingly influential figure despite his imprisonment, leading him to hope that he may yet lead his people on the walk to freedom. The film was nominated for an Academy Award in the category Best Original Song and won the corresponding award at the Golden Globes.

James Erskine directs this cricket documentary following the 1981 Ashes series, often referred to as 'Botham's Ashes'. As rioting and discontent brought chaos to the streets of England, English cricket also teetered on the brink of disaster with bookmakers offering odds of 500-1 against an English win in the third test. But the match-winning audacity and flair of deposed England captain Ian Botham led to the sporting turnaround of the century as favourites Australia were unexpectedly defeated and The Ashes returned home.

Black comedy directed by Chris Morris ('Brass Eye', 'The Day Today'). Riz Ahmed plays Omar, a devout British-based Muslim who forms a small terrorist group. Omar is an unconvincing leader and his team of fellow terrorists are just as unimpressive. Among them are dim-witted Waj (Kayvan Novak), shy and quiet Faisal (Adeel Akhtar) and recently-converted white Muslim, Barry (Nigel Lindsay), whose passion far outweighs his knowledge. Omar and his comrades come up with several destructive plans, including using birds as explosives and bombing mosques in an attempt to provoke non-violent Muslims. But do this rag-tag team of terrorists really pose a genuine threat to Britain?

Collection of American independent films. The Oscar-nominated drama 'Half Nelson' (2006) follows the story of an inner-city teacher's friendship with a pupil. Dan Dunne (Ryan Gosling) is a young teacher struggling to find the energy to inspire his teenage students as they examine everything from civil rights to the Civil War. Rejecting the standard curriculum in favour of an edgier approach, Dan teaches his students how to think for themselves. Though Dan is brilliant, dynamic, and in control in the classroom, he spends his time outside school on the edge of consciousness. His disappointments and disillusionment have led to a serious drug habit. He juggles hangovers and homework, keeping his lives separated, until one of his troubled students, Drey (Shareeka Epps), catches him getting high after school. From this awkward beginning, Dan and Drey stumble into an unexpected friendship. Husband-and-wife team Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck direct 'Sugar' (2008), a drama following young, up-and-coming Dominican baseball player Miguel 'Sugar' Santos (Algenis Perez Soto) as he progresses from training camps in his homeland to play for a Minor League club in Iowa. There, he finds himself lodging with an elderly couple and trying out his moves as starting pitcher in front of a demanding crowd. Off the field, he hangs out with his fellow Spanish-speaking ballplayers, befriends a former college star and conducts a tentative flirtation with Anne (Ellary Porterfield), the innocent, churchgoing granddaughter of his hosts. Todd Solondz writes and directs 'Dark Horse' (2011), a bittersweet dark comedy drama charting the dysfunctional romance that unfolds between two 30-something misfits. Abe (Jordan Gelber), a balding, chronically dissatisfied 'kidult' who works for his father (Christopher Walken), is spoiled rotten by his doting mother (Mia Farrow) and spends his free time indulging his passion for collecting toys. When he meets Miranda (Selma Blair), a failed writer going through post break-up depression, the two gradually enter into an unstable relationship with a habit of going off at some unexpected and bizarre tangents. 'Ballast' (2008) is a drama written and directed by Lance Hammer, set in the Mississippi Delta. After her ex-husband's suicide, impoverished single mother Marlee (Tara Riggs) is struggling to deal with the wayward behaviour of her teenage son, James (JimMyron Ross). Meanwhile, Marlee's ex-brother-in-law, convenience store owner Lawrence (Micheal J. Smith Sr), is thrown into a paralysis of grief and despair by his brother's suicide. As tension builds between the bereaved trio, they must find a way to deal with their pain and move towards some kind of reconciliation. John Sayles directs 'Honeydripper' (2007), a Deep South roadhouse drama starring Danny Glover. In the backwaters of Alabama, owner of the 'Honeydripper Lounge' Tyrone 'Pine Top' Purvis (Glover), faces financial ruin if he can't lure more customers away from his rival across the street. Hitting on a scheme to hire six string legend Guitar Sam for one make or break night, all bodes well until the day the train arrives and Magic Sam isn't on it due to his being taken ill. In desperation, Tyrone bails out young migrant guitarist Sonny (Gary Clark Jr) for one last throw of the dice. But can the kid really cut it and save the day?
