Time Out (Sydney) - - Arts & Culture -

ALI’S WED­DING

Ali (co-writer Osamah Sami) is an Iraqi in Mel­bourne un­der pres­sure from his par­ents to study medicine and agree to an ar­ranged mar­riage, even though he’s al­ready be­sot­ted with an­other girl. Opens Thu Aug 31.

THE BIG SICK

Sil­i­con Val­ley ac­tor Ku­mail Nan­jiani breaks out with this au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal girl­friend-in-a-coma com­edy that sig­nals his ar­rival to the top. Opens Thu Aug 3.

HAMP­STEAD

This Lon­don-set, golden years rom­com stars Diane Keaton as Emily, an al­lat-sea Amer­i­can widow, and Bren­dan Gleeson as Don­ald, a gruff Ir­ish loner – liv­ing on dif­fer­ent sides of the tracks. Opens Thu Aug 17.

AN IN­CON­VE­NIENT SE­QUEL: TRUTH TO POWER

Back with more en­vi­ron­men­tal bad news and a ring­ing call to ac­tion, Al Gore is ac­tu­ally more in­ter­est­ing than the film sur­round­ing him. Con­di­tions have wors­ened in the decade since the first film, and this ma­te­rial is alarm­ing to watch. Opens Thu Aug 10.

TERMINATOR 2: JUDG­MENT DAY 3D

Ground­break­ing CGI ef­fects, Arnie’s slyly witty per­for­mance, Linda Hamilton’s kick-ass rein­ven­tion of Sarah Con­nor and iconic ac­tion se­quences all help make James Cameron’s 1991 ef­fort the best killer ro­bot of the bunch. Opens Thu Aug 24.
