After The Storm

Yoshiko (Kiki) is recently widowed and living by herself in a cramped apartment where she periodically welcomes crumpled son Ryota (Abe) and his son Shingo (Yoshizawa). Poignant film about growth and the passing of time, with a gorgeous performance from Kiki as the witty, tender, no-nonsense Yoshiko. Quietly powerful.

Baby Driver

30 Jun–13 Jul: Fri Times vary

Berlin Syndrome

Australian photographer Clare puts her life on pause to travel to Berlin where she enters into a highly-charged fling with harmless-seeming teacher Andi. A nailbiting, yet rigorously humanised thriller based on Melanie Joosten's novel.

Churchill

The story of how Churchill (Cox) was vehemently opposed to the Normandy landings of 1944. Intelligent, sometimes moving drama with an exceptional cast (especially Purefoy as a touching George VI) but not notably cinematic, stringing together a series of confrontations with shots of Churchill being driven from one place to another.

Hampstead

Emily (Keaton) is an American widow living in Hampstead who falls for the grumpy Donald (Gleeson), who lives in a shack on Hampstead Heath. Twee later-life rom-com with Ketaon in pure ditz mode; her and Gleeson’s chemistry is appealing, but there are no surprises.

The Red Turtle

A man washes up on a desert island; when he tries to build a raft, it’s destroyed by a mysterious red turtle. Breathtaking début feature by Dutch writer, director and animator, a stunning, life-affirming tale of man’s relationship with nature, entirely worthy of the Ghibli name (the studio co-produced it).

Gifford Lecture Series 2017 - A God to Contend With

The fifth lecture in the University's Gifford Lecture Series for 2017, this year to be given by Professor Michael Rea on the theme 'Though The Darkness Hide Thee: Seeking the Face of the Invisible God'. Over the course of six lectures, Professor Rea, Director of the Center for Philosophy of Religion at the University of Notre Dame in the USA, will take a theologically informed approach to the topic of 'divine hiddenness', the idea that God’s existence is far less evident — and that vivid, unambiguous experience of God’s presence is much less frequent — than one might expect from a perfectly loving deity. Philosophers often treat divine hiddenness as evidence that God doesn’t exist but, according to Professor Rea, that line of thinking is based on drawing parallels between divine love and human love. In his lectures, he will contend that it is not reasonable to believe that perfect, divine love would resemble human perceptions of ideal parental or romantic love.

Searching for a New Science
