Two great films for December

First up on the Friday 17th is "The Boys Are Back" - Joe Warr (Clive Owen) is a British sports writer who lives in Australia with his second wife, Katy (Laura Fraser) and his young, eccentric son Artie (Nicholas McAnulty). When Katy gets diagnosed with cancer and passes away, Joe copes with the responsibilities of being a single parent with the help of his beloved wife's spirit.

His teenaged son from his first marriage, Harry (George MacKay) who feels abandoned in the UK with his mother who hates him uses Katies death as an opportunity to try and build a relationship with his father and comes to visit him in Australia for a while. Although Harry is at first unnerved by the lack of discipline in the house, he eventually warms up and forms a strong bond with Artie whilst struggling with his relationship with Joe.

When Joe is forced by work to leave the two of them alone in the house for a night, local teenagers throw a house party at the house against both boys' will.

With the house ransacked, Harry flies back to England. Joe and Artie come after him and after a while, Harry is convinced to move to Australia full time.

Joe has been brought closer to both of his sons, but continues to raise them with the same lack of discipline as before.

Then on Saturday 18th we are screening "The Pink Panther" - As a child, Princess Dala is given, by her father, the largest diamond in the world, in which if you stare into it can be seen a "Pink Panther" hence the name. However, now as a young woman, rebels in her home country have seized power and are demanding the return of the jewel.

Dala relaxes on holiday in an exclusive skiing resort but noted British playboy, Sir Charles Lytton is in town. He is secretly "The Phantom" - infamous jewel thief who has eyes on the Pink Panther. Charles's playboy nephew George follows to the resort in an attempt to steal it and blame it on "The Phantom", not knowing that it's his uncle.

On the Phantom's trail is Inspector Jacques Clouseau, from France, and his wife who, unknowingly to Jacques, is the lover of Charles and helper in the Phantom's crime.

Jacques tries to stop the attempts but he is so clueless that when several attempts are made at a fantasy-dress party, Jacques looks everywhere but the right place...
