Moonlight Saturday 6 May, 8pm & Sunday 7 May, 4.30pm.
Going from childhood, to teenage hood, to adulthood, Moonlight follows an African American man trying to understand himself and his sense of love in Miami’s poorer district – a hard skinned place that wants to predefine him. “…lyrical, insightful and human, from film-makers who will brook no dishonesty or cliché.
This is a gem of a film. Go see it.” 5/5 stars. Stuff.

Lion Saturday 6 May, 5.15pm & Sunday 7 May, 7.15pm.
25 years after being adopted by a loving family in Hobart, young Saroo sets out to find his birth family. He embarks on a needle-in-a-haystack quest with only a small store of memories, and the help of Google Maps. Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara and Dev Patel star in this true story drama, based on the memoir by India-born Australian Saroo Brierly.
“Lion may be an uplifting story of one man’s determination and hope, a story of compassion and the importance of being connected, but it’s one heck of a fraught ride getting there. Don’t think about stepping into the theatre without a good supply of tissues.” 4/5 stars. NZ Herald.
