La La Land (12a)

Mia, an aspiring actress, serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions and Sebastian, a jazz musician, scrapes by playing cocktail party gigs in dingy bars, but as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.

Land and Freedom (15)

An old man dies. Looking through his papers, his grand-daughter realises that he had fought in the Spanish Civil War. As a young Communist Party member, he (David) had gone to Spain in 1936 to fight the fascists. He joined the POUM militia which was allied to the militias of other left-wing groups. But the idealism of David and his friends was tested to its limit as their comrades were killed and the alliance disintegrated. The old man is buried. Was his struggle in vain?

Learning to Drive (15)

Isabel Coixet directs this comedy starring Ben Kingsley and Patricia Clarkson. Wendy (Clarkson), a book critic in New York, is oblivious to the infidelties of her husband. When the marriage deteriorates after 21 years, Wendy, who relied on husband Ted (Jake Weber) for driving, realises she must restate her independence and learn herself, and so contacts Sikh driving instructor Darwan (Kingsley). Behind the wheel, the pair form a close friendship and confide in each other about their personal lives, including Darwan's upcoming arranged marriage to Jasleen (Sarita Choudhury), a woman travelling from his village in India to New York.

Lion (PG)

In 1986, Saroo was a five-year-old child in India of a poor but happy rural family. On a trip with his brother, Saroo soon finds himself alone and trapped in a moving decommissioned passenger train that takes him to Calcutta, 1500 miles away from home. Now totally lost in an alien urban environment and too young to identify either himself or his home to the authorities, Saroo struggles to survive as a street child until he is sent to an orphanage. Soon, Saroo is selected to be adopted by the Brierley family in Tasmania, where he grows up in a loving, prosperous home. However, for all his material good fortune, Saroo finds himself plagued by his memories of his lost family in his adulthood and tries to search for them even as his guilt drives him to hide this quest from his adoptive parents and his girlfriend. Only when he has an epiphany does he realize not only the answers he needs, but also the steadfast love that he has always had with all his loved ones in both worlds.
