STRANGER­LAND (MA)

The Arts Cen­tre Gold Coast

An in­trigu­ing first fea­ture from Aus­tralian direc­tor Kim Far­rant in which Ni­cole Kid­man and Joseph Fi­ennes play the par­ents of two chil­dren who go miss­ing from their home in a coun­try town lo­cated close to a vast desert. As the cop in charge of in­ves­ti­gat­ing the dis­ap­pear­ance, Hugo Weav­ing is in fine form and PJ Dil­lon’s photography is out­stand­ing.

JURAS­SIC WORLD (M) Coolan­gatta, Robina, Australia Fair, Nerang, Har­bour Town, Yatala Drive-In

Twenty-two years af­ter the events of Juras­sic Park, Isla Nublar now fea­tures a fully func­tion­ing di­nosaur theme park, Juras­sic World, as orig­i­nally en­vi­sioned by John Ham­mond. A new at­trac­tion is cre­ated to re-spark vis­i­tors’ in­ter­est, which back­fires hor­ri­bly. Keenly awaited re­boot stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dal­las Howard.

THE EM­PEROR’S NEW CLOTHES (M)

The Arts Cen­tre Gold Coast

Rus­sell Brand’s po­lit­i­cal ac­tivism has ex­panded into

The Em­peror’s New Clothes, a doc­u­men­tary where the co­me­dian ex­plores the in­equal­ity be­tween the rich and the rest of so­ci­ety and ques­tions why bil­lion­aire Lord Rother­mere, who owns the

Daily Mail, doesn’t pay tax in

Bri­tain.

HOT PUR­SUIT (M)

Nerang, Yatala Drive-In

This is the story of a by-the­book cop (Reese Wither­spoon) and a drug boss widow (Sofia Ver­gas) try­ing to evade crooked cops and vi­cious as­sas­sins as they go on the lam through Texas. The ladies make their es­cape on a tour bus. The crooked cops chase af­ter them while two thugs fol­low closely.

IN­SIDE OUT (G) Nerang, Tweed City, Yatala Drive-In, Coolan­gatta, Robina, Australia Fair

Af­ter young Ri­ley’s up­rooted from her Mid­west life and moved to San Fran­cisco, her emo­tions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Dis­gust and Sad­ness – con­flict on how best to nav­i­gate a new city, house and school. Fea­tures the voices of Rashida Jones, Diane Lane and Amy Poehler.

THE NIGHTIN­GALE (M) Kingscliff

French direc­tor Philippe Muyl presents this bond-build­ing jour­ney be­tween an old man and young girl in ru­ral China. The film ex­plores Bei­jing’s long-run­ning one-child pol­icy and the is­sue of par­ents pam­per­ing their off­spring, spark­ing a gen­er­a­tion of spoiled brats. Stars Bao­tian Li, Xiao­ran Li and Xin Yi Yang.

WALK­ING THE CAMINO (PG) Kingscliff

A mod­est doc­u­men­tary about peo­ple mak­ing the an­cient pil­grim­age to San­ti­ago de Com­postela – the Catholic cathe­dral in Spain that some be­lieve holds the re­mains of the apos­tle James – this is not a re­li­gious film. The in­di­vid­u­als we fol­low on the 800km walk from south­west­ern France to the church town in north­west­ern Spain are there for var­i­ous rea­sons.

LA DONNA DEL LAGO Kingscliff

Set in Scot­land, con­duc­tor Michele Mar­i­otti presents this tale of the Lady in the Lake set to Rossini’s dra­matic and ro­man­tic mu­sic. Stars Joyce DiDonato, Juan Diego Florez.

Joseph Fi­ennes and Ni­cole Kid­man in Stranger­land.
