SNOWPIERCER
2013, Radius-TWC, 126 min, South Korea, Czech Republic, USA, France, Dir: Bong Joon Ho

One of the most dazzling visions of our dystopian future since Ridley Scott’s BLADE RUNNER, this sci-fi thriller takes place on a train carrying the last survivors - Chris Evans, Ed Harris, Tilda Swinton and Octavia Spencer among them - of a man-made environmental catastrophe. But a rigid class structure has been imposed on the passengers, leading to a bloody rebellion.


FRUITVALE STATION
2013, The Weinstein Company, 85 min, USA, Dir: Ryan Coogler

Ryan Coogler's directorial debut tells the true story of Oscar Grant (Michael B. Jordan in a breakout performance), who was killed by transit police in Oakland. The film follows the young black man through his final day - a day he’d intended to begin a more positive lifestyle. The 2013 Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner.


PARADISE
2013, Image Entertainment, 86 min, USA, Dir: Diablo Cody

For her directorial debut, Diablo Cody offers a take on religious belief that’s unexpectedly warm but just as funny and quotable as her Oscar-winning script for JUNO. After conservative churchgoer Lamb Mannerheim (Julianne Hough) survives a plane crash, she decides life’s too short to box with God and heads for Sin City, where a bartender (Russell Brand) and a lounge singer (Octavia Spencer) introduce her to some of Las Vegas’ worldly pleasures. With Nick Offerman and Holly Hunter.
