  • 1994
  • Australia
  • 1h 44min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Stephan Elliott
  • Written by: Stephan Elliott
  • Cast: Terence Stamp, Hugo Weaving, Guy Pearce, Bill Hunter

Two transvestites and a transsexual team up for a trip across the Australian outback for a drag show in Alice Springs. Serious issues pop up from time to time, but the emphasis is on the camp humour of the in-bus bitchiness and outrageous musical set pieces.

Generation Wealth

  • US
  • 1h 46min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Lauren Greenfield
  • Cast: Limo Bob, Florian Homm, Tiffany Masters

Documentary from the director of The Queen of Versailles which investigates the disproportionate distribution of wealth across the world. Despite Greenfield's keen eye, a lack of focus and ham-handed comparisons to her personal life leads to some hackneyed conclusions.

The Incredibles 2

The Incredibles 2
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 5min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk

In this sequel to the 2004 original, Supers are still forbidden but Elastigirl (Hunter) gets to go up against a supervillain while husband Bob (Nelson) minds the kids. It looks great and the voice cast is excellent, but it feels dated and the set-pieces become tiring.

Swimming with Men

Swimming with Men
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 37min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Oliver Parker
  • Cast: Rob Brydon, Rupert Graves, Adeel Akhtar, Jim Carter, Jane Horrocks, Thomas Turgoose, Daniel Mays, Charlotte Riley

Eric (Brydon) is a melancholy accountant in middle life who joins a synchronised swim team at his local pool. This ultra-low-budget offering has a game ensemble who work terrifically well as wisecracking comrades, and Riley as good as their tough coach. It may be The Full Monty with nose clips and goggles but it keeps afloat.
