An inspirational true story, Romero captures the essence of one man's incredible courage, exploring the life of respected Archbishop Oscar Romero, who in 1980 made the ultimate sacrifice against social injustice and oppression in his country of El Salvador.
Golden Globe Award winner Raul Julia (The Burning Season, Kiss of the Spiderwoman) is Romero, a gently-spoken yet towering pillar of strength who makes the remarkable personal transformation from humble, complacent priest to vocal, committed leader of the Salvadoran people.
Speaking out against the death squads and the terror campaigns implemented by the government of the day to crush the growing rebel movement and concomitant guerrilla warfare, Romero's stance is considered both polemic and revolutionary, immediately perceived as an act of treason by the prevailing government. As fellow priests are attacked and churches shut down across the country, Romero's peaceful stance against impossible odds and the bloody terror of the ever-present military junta is a display of one man's conviction, buoyed by an undying love for his people.
Directed by John DuiganSirens, The Far East), with a rousing score by Oscar winner Michael Yared (The English Patient), Romero is a captivating triumph of humanity over violence and hope over despair.

Based on Moore Raymond's 1945 novel, Smiley tells the lively tale of an imaginative young boy who lives in the small outback town of Murrumbilla.
Smiley (Colin Petersen) is the quintessential Aussie larrikin lad on a mission and nothing or nobody is going to stand in his way. His father (Reg Lye) is often away droving cattle leaving overworked Mrs Greevins (Margaret Christensen) to fret about her beloved little boy.
Determined to buy himself a brand new bicycle, Smiley takes up a number of odd jobs in an effort to save up enough money. Despite all best intentions, Smiley lands himself in all manner of mischief along the way, getting involved unwittingly in some decidedly shady shenanigans.
With a charismatic performance from Aussie icon Chips Rafferty (The Sundowners) as the venerable Sergeant Flaxman, Ralph Richardson (Doctor Zhivago) and Charles 'Bud' Tingwell (The Castle), full of lighthearted moments and innocent charm, Smiley is a classic Australian film that will delight audiences of all ages.
