1. Paris Can Wait
Eleanor Coppola makes her feature film debut with this delightfully frothy jaunt through the glory of the French countryside. Anne (Diane Lane) is feeling sidelined by her workaholic husband (Alec Baldwin). When the chance arises to travel to Paris with her husband's charming French business partner (Arnaud Viard), well, c'est la vie! (Rated PG)
2. The Space Between
Travel to beautiful northern Italy in the first ever Australian-Italian co-production! When chef Marco (Flavio Parenti) returns to Udine to nurse his ailing father he feels he is at an impasse in life. Entering with a flicker of hope is Olivia (Maeve Dermody), a Melbournian who has come to Udine to chase her artistic dreams (Rated M).
3. The Beguiled
Sofia Coppola won the Best Director award at Cannes for this subversively funny, fiendishly devious Southern Gothic melodrama of an all-girls school thrown emotionally asunder when a man appears in their midst. Starring Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning (Rated M).
4. Lady Macbeth
Breakout star Florence Pugh is ferocious in this Victorian gothic stunner as a young woman forced into marriage who resorts to extreme measures to preserve her one source of happiness. It's not the Scottish Play, but this heroine is even more deadly than her namesake.
★★★★★ - The Guardian (Rated MA15+).
5. Monsieur Chocolat
The always charming Omar Sy (our favourite actor from "The Intouchables") stars in the true story of Chocolat, an Afro-Cuban circus performer who becomes a superstar in Belle Epoque Paris. As Chocolat becomes aware of the double standard underpinning his act with fellow clown George Footit, he strikes out on his own (Rated M).
6. First Girl I Loved
For a touch of romance, see First Girl I Loved. Winner of the Audience Award at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, Dylan Gelula stars as Anne, a high schooler who is thrown into internal chaos when she falls in love with the most popular girl in school, angering her best friend Clifton who schemes to sabotage Anne's potential romance (Rated M).
7. A Quiet Passion
Cynthia Nixon (SATC's Miranda) astounds in the role of the great poet Emily Dickinson, in Terence Davies' intimate account of a 'minor' life lived with interior passion. It received four star reviews from The Age and David Stratton, and in the opinion of your humble Nova scribe and the Cazinc team, it's one of the best films of the year! (Rated PG).
