THE BFG (2016)
Starring Ruby Barnhill, Mark Rylance, Rebecca Hall, Jemaine Clement, Bill Hader, Penelope Wilton, Marilyn Norry, Chris Shields, Matt Frewer and Geoffrey Wade. Directed by Steven Spielberg.

The BFG, while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler and Fleshlumpeater on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the BFG prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie, a precocious 10-year-old girl from London, is initially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave, but soon comes to realise that the BFG is actually quite gentle and charming, and, having never met a giant before, has many questions. The BFG brings Sophie to Dream Country where he collects dreams and sends them to children, teaching her all about the magic and mystery of dreams. Having both been on their own in the world up until now, their affection for one another quickly grows, but Sophie’s presence in Giant Country has attracted the unwanted attention of the other giants, who have become increasingly more bothersome. Sophie and the BFG soon depart for London to see the Queen and warn her of the precarious giant situation, but they must first convince the Queen and her maid, Mary, that giants do indeed exist. Together, they come up with a plan to get rid of the giants once and for all.

REVIEWS The BFG - A joyous, gentle and beautiful children's classic

PEOPLE, PLACES, THINGS (2015)
Starring Jemaine Clement, Regina Hall, Jessica Williams, Stephanie Allynne and Michael Chernus. Directed by Jim Strouse.

Will Henry is a graphic novelist, a professor at the School of Visual Arts and the father of beautiful twin girls. His seemingly picture-perfect Brooklyn life is turned upside down when he walks in on the mother of his children, and longtime girlfriend, Charlie, with their friend Gary at his daughters’ over the top fifth birthday party. Flash forward one year later, Will is a single father, living alone in a tiny studio apartment in Astoria, trying to put his life back together. In this thoughtful comedy, Will is forced to navigate the unknown landscape of single fatherhood and dating in New York City, while remaining an inspiration for his students and coming to terms with himself both as a father as an artist.

REVIEWS People, Places, Things - Love is awkward

WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS (2014)
Starring Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, Jonny Brugh, Stuart Rutherford, Rhys Darby, Ben Fransham and Cori Gonzalez Macuer. Directed by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi.

Flatmates Viago, Deacon, and Vladislav are three vampires who are just trying to get by in modern society; from paying rent and sticking to the housework roster to trying to get invited in to nightclubs, they're just like anyone else - except they're immortal and must feast on human blood. They have one more flatmate, 8000 year-old Petyr who epitomises the film's title: he sleeps in the basement, literally in The Shadows.

When Petyr turns 20-something human hipster Nick into a vampire, the guys must teach him the ropes and guide him through his newfound eternal life. In return, they are forced to learn a thing or two about modern society, fashions, technology, and the Internet. But it's the introduction of Nick's human friend, Stu, that really changes the vampire's lives and attitudes towards the ever-changing world around them.

When Stu's life is threatened, the vamps show us that maybe humans are worth fighting for, and that even though your heart may be cold and dead, it doesn't mean you can't feel anything.
