“It’s an uproariously emotional movie, to all appearances painfully personal and featuring performances which are almost operatic in scale.”
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

The Hollywood Reporter

“A powerful film about the ferocity of mother love.”
Time

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN: GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING

and other treasures from the Mauritshuis Museum, Netherlands

TICKETS ON SALE NOW FROM CINEMAS

After two years on a blockbuster world tour, the ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ has returned home to the much-loved Mauritshuis gallery in The Hague, which has just completed extensive renovations. With huge queues lining up for a glimpse of her enigmatic beauty and nearly 1.2 million visitors at its stop in Japan, the enduring appeal of this masterpiece is indisputable. The beautifully filmed documentary goes in pursuit of the many unresolved riddles surrounding the extraordinary painting and its mysterious creator Vermeer. Who was this girl? Why and how was it painted? Why is it so revered?

Meet the man behind the masterpieces in this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition

★★★★★
“This brilliant, brave blockbuster reveals the true Rembrandt.” Guardian

★★★★★
“If you have any feeling for Rembrandt, for painting or for art of any sort, you must see this show Telegraph

Every Rembrandt exhibition is eagerly anticipated but this major new show, focused on the final years of his life and hosted by London’s National Gallery and Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum is the biggest in many years. Given exclusive & privileged access by both galleries, the film documents this extraordinary show and interweaves Rembrandt’s life story with the behind the scenes preparations at both institutions. For many, this is the greatest artist that ever lived – this film will take a close look at the man behind such acclaim.

A film by Ruben Östlund

IN CINEMAS OCTOBER 16

WINNER – JURY PRIZE, UN CERTAIN REGARD
Festival de Cannes 2014

OFFICIAL SELECTION – SWEDEN, FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
87th Academy Awards

CLICK HERE FOR CINEMAS



An impulsive decision in a moment of crisis – an avalanche – drives a wedge between a husband and wife, in this gripping moral drama and pitch black comedy from provocative director Ruben Östlund (Play), that has become a word-of-mouth sensation at film festivals from Cannes to Fantastic Fest.

Critics have described Force Majeure as “A hilarious takedown of masculinity,” (Time Out New York), “A sardonic, serious, funny, precision-controlled psycho-comedy-drama inspired by the selfishness of our survival instincts,” (Screen) and “By no means a traditional disaster movie” (Variety).

Acclaimed filmmaker Ruben Östlund is being touted as the first Swedish director who is not Ingmar Bergman to win an Oscar for Best Foreign Language film at the Academy Awards next year.

Force Majeure opens in select cinemas on October 16.

TRAILER: MOMMY the new film by Xavier Dolan

Sharmill Films acquires Xavier Dolan’s acclaimed new film MOMMY for Australasian theatrical distribution in 2015

Sharmill Films is very proud to announce its acquisition of Xavier Dolan’s highly acclaimed new feature film MOMMY for Australasian theatrical distribution in the first quarter of 2015.

A competition title at the Cannes Film Festival, Mommy was awarded the Jury Prize, sharing the honour with French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard’s Goodbye to Language. Mommy has since been announced as the official entry from Canada for the 87th Academy Awards to be held next year.

Mommy centres on an explosive 15 year old boy with ADHD and his widowed single mother. But when Kyla, a new neighbour, enters their lives, things begin to change. The film stars Anne Dorval (who portrayed Dolan’s character’s mother in his 2010 feature I Killed My Mother), Olivier Pilon and Suzanne Clément.

The theatrical deal was brokered by Anick Poirier of Les Films Séville and Natalie Miller of Sharmill Films.
