Next Monday 26 October, Girl Asleep will screen at 6.30pm, followed by A Month of Sundays at 8.45pm.

Next Tuesday 27 October, Highly Strung will screen at 6.30pm, followed by Carol at 8.45pm.

What the critics have been saying:

Highly Strung: “… an exquisite looking insider’s view of the elite world of high-end stringed instruments” – The Advertiser.

“Hicks has made something universal out of the stories of these people who, despite their differences, have one thing in common – a yearning for beauty. And you don’t need to be a classical music fan for that to resonate deeply” – InDaily.

A Month of Sundays: “It’s a simple story that derives much of its charm from the quiet humour of the writing, with LaPaglia’s deadpan one-liners outclassed only by that master of comic delivery, John Clarke” – The Advertiser.

Girl Asleep: “… is an imaginative coming-of-age story with a positive message about embracing who you are” – InDaily.

“Inventive and confidently executed, this stage-to-screen translation of Windmill Theatre’s 2014 play is a bright and occasionally subversive take on teen growing pains that gives fresh legs to a familiar genre. We’re lucky to call this one our own” – Rip It Up.

Carol: “Cate Blanchett is luminous… It’s taken a long time for the story to make it to the big screen but it was worth the wait” – InDaily.
