Good Luck to You, Leo Grande

Nancy Stokes (Emma Thompson), a retired schoolteacher and widow, is yearning for some adventure, some human connection, and some sex. Good sex. In an anonymous hotel room, Nancy greets a sex worker named Leo Grande (Daryl McCormack).

An uplifting comedy that challenges expectations, Good Luck To You, Leo Grande is a hilarious, heartwarming, sex-positive tale of empowerment and self-discovery.

Elvis

From his childhood in Tupelo, Mississippi to his rise to stardom starting in Memphis, Tennessee and his conquering of Las Vegas, Nevada, Elvis Presley becomes the first rock 'n roll star and changes the world with his music.

No Bollocks Presents: Fantastic Planet (La Planète Sauvage)

Rene Laloux's mesmerising psychedelic sci-fi is a landmark of European animation. Based on Stefan Wul’s novel Oms en serie, Laloux's breathtaking vision immediately drew comparisons to Swift's Gulliver's Travels. La Planète Sauvage tells the story of "Oms", human-like creatures, kept as domesticated pets by an alien race of blue giants called "Draags". The story takes place on the Draags’ planet where an Om called Terr manages to escape enslavement and begins to organise an Om revolt. The imagination invested in the surreal creatures, music and sound design, and eerie landscapes, is immense and unforgettable. The direction of Rene Laloux, the incredible art of Roland Topor, and Alain Goraguer's brilliant complementary score (much sampled by the hip-hop community) all combine to make La Planète Sauvage a mind-altering experience.

Alien

"In space, no one can hear you scream." A close encounter of the third kind becomes a Jaws-style nightmare when an alien invades a spacecraft in Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror classic. On the way home from a mission for the Company, the Nostromo's crew is woken up from hibernation by the ship's Mother computer to answer a distress signal from a nearby planet. Capt. Dallas's (Tom Skerritt) rescue team discovers a bizarre pod field, but things get even stranger when a face-hugging creature bursts out of a pod and attaches itself to Kane (John Hurt). Over the objections of Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), science officer Ash (Ian Holm) lets Kane back on the ship. The acid-blooded incubus detaches itself from an apparently recovered Kane, but an alien erupts from Kane's stomach and escapes. The alien starts stalking the humans, pitting Dallas and his crew (and cat) against a malevolent killing machine that also has a protector in the nefarious Company.
