6 ACADEMY AWARDS® NOMINATIONS INCLUDING BEST PICTURE

Set in the glamour of 1950's post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock's life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love.

The Shape of Water (STF)
13 ACADEMY AWARDS® NOMINATIONS INCLUDING BEST PICTURE

At the height of the Cold War, circa 1962, two workers in a high-tech US government laboratory (Sally Hawkins and Oscar winner Octavia Spencer) discover a terrifying secret experiment, in this otherworldly fairytale from Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth).

"Well, the first thing is that I love monsters. I identify with monsters."

No filmmaker has plumbed the soul of screen monsters with more fire and empathy than Guillermo del Toro. The master behind Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy, and Pacific Rim has long shown a deep understanding of what monsters mean to us, and why we need them. THE SHAPE OF WATER is his strongest expression yet of the shivering appeal of monsters, and the unsettling notion that the monstrous can be revealed in many forms.

In 1963, Elisa (Sally Hawkins) works as a janitor at a US government laboratory. One night, a strange, amphibious creature (del Toro regular Doug Jones) is wrangled into the facility. Elisa is more fascinated than frightened. What scares her more is the threat posed by the federal agent in charge (Michael Shannon, also appearing at this year's Festival in The Current War). Cruel and self-serving, he seems convinced the surest way to handle the mysterious creature is to kill it. With the help of her neighbor Giles (Richard Jenkins), her co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer), and a sympathetic scientist (Michael Stuhlbarg), Elisa hatches a plan to save the creature's life, at the risk of her own.

Strange marvels abound in THE SHAPE OF WATER. Marshalling these remarkable performances together with stunning production design, fluid camerawork, and Alexandre Desplat's gorgeous score, del Toro delivers unforgettable film poetry. Movie fans will luxuriate in the wealth of references to classic monster movies and mid-century thrillers. Some will note the film's layered subtexts of social critique. But none of that is necessary to enjoy the pure pleasure of watching a master filmmaker working at the height of his powers, exploring the world he most loves.

ROMÉO ET JULIETTE
The most famous love story in literature has been turned into the most faithful likeness to the original tragedy by Shakespeare thanks to the talent of Charles Gounod, one of the great representatives of French lyric drama. Roméo et Juliette returns to the stage of the Gran Teatre del Liceu after a 32-year absence.

This co-production with the Santa Fe Opera is conducted by Josep Pons, and co-stars Saimir Pirgu and Aida Garifullina. Stephen Lawless's staging locates the original action in the context of the American Civil War (1861-1865). The lovers live in a mausoleum, as a prefiguration that will fatally condition their destiny from the very start of their infatuation.

Goethe présente Beuys (STF)
A look at the life, art and politics of influential, controversial German artist Joseph Beuys. Using previously unpublished audio and film footage, Andres Veiel creates an associative, loose portrait including personal aspects of Beuy’s childhood, his positions on art, film extracts of his art happenings and scenes of his early involvement in the Green party.

He wanted a revolution – and found it within his obscure juxtaposition of objects which occasionally provoked laughter. Revolutions need laughter, he proclaimed. He wanted to create art that people not only wanted to participate in, but art that people ‘must’ participate in. Sounds like a grand statement, but coming from him and the way he is depicted within Beuys, while watching, it seemed almost feasible.

“One of the most exciting documentaries of the last few years.”

Before we vanish (STA)
In his twentieth film, acclaimed horror director Kiyoshi Kurosawa reinvents the alien movie as a unique and profoundly human tale of love and mystery. Three aliens travel to Earth on a reconnaissance mission in preparation for a mass invasion. Having taken possession of human bodies, the visitors rob the hosts of their essence - good, evil, property, family, belonging - leaving only hollow shells, which are all but unrecognizable to their loved ones. Equally hilarious, thrilling, and profound, BEFORE WE VANISH reminds audiences of the continued strength of one of Japanese cinema's most unique auteurs - and the value of the human spirit.

The Death of Stalin (STF)
The one-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in this uproarious, wickedly irreverent satire from Armando Iannucci (Veep, In the Loop). Moscow, 1953: when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin drops dead, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), the wily Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria (Simon Russell Beale). But as they bumble, brawl, and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government? Combining palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce, this audacious comedy is a bitingly funny takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction performed to the hilt by a sparkling ensemble cast.

The film features fan favourites from over five albums including indelible hits Breathing Underwater, Gold Girls Guns and Help I’m Alive. With plenty of arena-worthy moments, Dreams So Real is a stunning recreation of an incredibly special evening.
