Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, primed to snuff out the failing city's criminal resurgence. Based on the characters from DC, BATWOMAN stars Ruby Rose (Orange Is the New Black), Rachel Skarsten (Reign, Birds of Prey, Imposters), Meagan Tandy (Survivor's Remorse, Teen Wolf), Nicole Kang (You, The Code, Swallow), Camrus Johnson (The Sun Is Also a Star, Luke Cage), Elizabeth Anweis (9-1-1, The Affair) and Dougray Scott (Mission: Impossible). Kate Kane (Rose) never planned to be Gotham's new vigilante. Three years after Batman mysteriously disappeared, Gotham is a city in despair. Without the Caped Crusader, the Gotham City Police Department was overrun and outgunned by criminal gangs. Enter Jacob Kane (Scott) and his military-grade Crows Private Security, which now protects the city with omnipresent firepower and militia. Years before, Jacob's first wife and daughter were killed in the crossfire of Gotham crime. He sent his only surviving daughter, Kate Kane, away from Gotham for her safety. After a dishonorable discharge from military school and years of brutal survival training, Kate returns home when the Alice in Wonderland gang targets her father and his security firm, by kidnapping his best Crow officer Sophie Moore (Tandy). Although remarried to wealthy socialite Catherine Hamilton-Kane (Anweis), who bankrolls the Crows, Jacob is still struggling with the family he lost, while keeping Kate the daughter he still has at a distance. But Kate is a woman who's done asking for permission. In order to help her family and her city, she'll have to become the one thing her father loathes a dark knight vigilante. With the help of her compassionate stepsister, Mary (Kang), and the crafty Luke Fox (Johnson), the son of Wayne Enterprises' tech guru Lucius Fox, Kate Kane continues the legacy of her missing cousin, Bruce Wayne, as Batwoman. Still holding a flame for her ex-girlfriend, Sophie, Kate uses everything in her power to combat the dark machinations of the psychotic Alice (Skarsten), who's always somewhere slipping between sane and insane. Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate soars through the shadowed streets of Gotham as Batwoman. But don't call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, she must first overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope.

BARBARA STANWYCK (Sorry, Wrong Number) sizzles, HENRY FONDA (12 Angry Men) bumbles, and PRESTON STURGES (The Palm Beach Story) runs riot in one of the all-time great screwballs, a pitch-perfect blend of comic zing and woon-worthy romance.

Heralded as the greatest film ever made on release, winning an Oscar in 1949 and topping the Sight & Sound film poll in 1952, De Sica's seminal work of Italian neorealism has had an impact on cinema worldwide from release to the present day, with filmmakers such as Satyajit Ray and Ken Loach claiming the film as a direct influence on their own. Bicycle Thieves tells the story of Antonio, a long unemployed man who finally finds employment putting up cinema posters for which he needs a bicycle. His wife pawns all the family linen to redeem the already pawned bicycle and for Antonio salvation has come, until the bicycle is stolen. Antonio and his son take to the streets in a desperate search to find the bicycle.

This film follows Max Richter as he consolidates the most ambitious performance of his critically acclaimed 8-hour opus, Sleep. Centering around the open-air concert in Los Angeles, as well as footage from Berlin, New York and Paris, we are plunged deep into the artist s life and process, transcending the work to explore his legacy. Directed by Emmy-nominated and award-winning South African filmmaker Natalie Johns, this ground-breaking visual portrait echoes the contemplative essence of Richter s work, offering a poetic depiction of the liminal state audiences experience. Performances of Sleep require unprecedented endurance from musicians. Experiencing Sleep requires an open vulnerability from audiences; strangers drifting in and out of consciousness amongst hundreds of others. This story is a rare expression of a global community, unified. A film for these frenetic times; a meditative respite from the rush and chaos of the modern world, studying the universal experience of sleep that unites us all.
A widowed farmer begins a new life on her own terms by fighting against corruption and injustice in her community.
