Midnight in Paris

Rated PG (Mild sexual references), 94 mins
On holidays in Paris with his fiancé, Gil, a successful Hollywood screenwriter and self-confessed nostalgist, harbours the dream of someday writing a great American novel. He’s besotted with the golden age of Paris of the 1920s, and the legends of Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Picasso, Dali… Exploring the city, Gil embarks on an enchanted journey to discover the streets alive with hidden wonders that will change his life forever.

Featuring Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, Michael Sheen, Marion Cotillard and Adrien Brody, Midnight In Paris is an exhilarating valentine to the City of Light, and a sheer pleasure to watch – beguiling, magical, thoughtful and very funny, and a paean to dreamers and romantics everywhere.

Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Rated M (Mature themes), 96 mins
Two young American women, Vicky (Rebecca Hall) and Cristina (Scarlett Johansson) come to Barcelona for a summer holiday. Vicky is sensible and engaged to be married; Cristina is emotionally and sexually adventurous. In Barcelona, they're drawn into a series of unconventional romantic entanglements with Juan Antonio (Javier Bardem), a charismatic painter, who is still involved with his tempestuous ex-wife Maria Elena (Penelope Cruz). Set against the luscious Mediterranean sensuality of Barcelona, Vicky Cristina Barcelona is Woody Allen's funny and open-minded celebration of love in all its configurations.
