    Set in 1962, six years after her celebrated Wedding of the Century, GRACE OF MONACO is an intimate snapshot of a year in the life of the twentieth century's most iconic Princess - Grace Kelly - as she strived to reconcile her past and her present, a yearning for a return to the big screen with her newfound role as a mother of two, monarch of a European principality and wife to Prince Ranier III.

    While contemplating overtures from Alfred Hitchcock to return to her career in Hollywood, Grace found herself plunged into a personal crisis when Rainier's modernization of an ailing Monaco was halted by Charles de Gaulle - the French President - and his attempts to not only impose French taxation on Monaco, but reclaim the principality for France by force.

    The full-blown international crisis and impending French invasion that loomed - would pose a crisis not just for her family, her marriage and her country, but in Grace's private life. It would become the moment in which a cinematic icon, an American far from home, would have to face a tough decision - return to her celebrated status as a movie star, globally loved and adored, or accept that she will never act again, embrace her new role and her new identity, her duty to her husband, her children, and the world's second smallest country that has now become her home.

    Grace of Monaco is a real-life fairytale, a sweeping romance, a portrait of the cinematic legend of Princess Grace and a realization that love is much more than a passion, but an obligation.

  • Something terrifying has come to Earth, something that attacks us while we sleep and turns us into soulless replicants. The clock is ticking as Washington, DC psychiatrist Carol Bennell (Nicole Kidman) and her colleague Ben Driscoll (Daniel Craig) embark on a heart-stopping journey into a nightmarish world where the only way to stay alive is to stay awake. 

    No one can be trusted. No one is safe in producer Joel Silver’s bold new take on Jack Finney’s classic novel The Body Snatchers.  Don’t fall asleep! The Invasion is here.

  • Stanley Kubrick’s daring last film is many things. It is a compelling psychosexual journey. A haunting dreamscape. A riveting tale of suspense. A major milestone in the careers of stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. And “a worthy final chapter to a great director’s career” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times). 

    Cruise plays Dr. William Harford, a New Yorker who plunges into an erotic foray that threatens his marriage — and may even ensnare him in a lurid murder mystery — after his wife’s (Kidman) admission of sexual longings. As the story sweeps from doubt and fear to self-discovery and reconciliation, Kubrick orchestrates it with masterful flourishes. Graceful tracking shots, controlled pacing, rich colours, startling images: bravura traits that make Kubrick a filmmaker for the ages are here to keep everyone’s eyes wide open.

  • Fun and excitement abound in the Owens family of wily witches. One problem though: the men the Owens women fall in love with are doomed to an untimely death. Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman sparkle in Practical Magic, adapted from Alice Hoffman’s best seller and directed by Griffin Dunne (Addicted to Love). 

    They play Sally and Gillian Owens, sisters hexed by a centuries-old curse...and copying with a witches’ brew of events involving a possible love-match (Aidan Quinn) for one, a zombie (Goran Visnjc) for the other and a need to resume the age-old witchcraft taught by two doting Owens aunts (Stockard Channing and Dianne West). Sit for a spell and enjoy!

  • Thriller specialist Philip Noyce (Patriot Games, The Bone Collector) directs three splendid actors. Sam Neill (Event Horizon, Bicentennial Man), Nicole Kidman (Eyes Wide Shut) and Billy Zane (Titanic) – in riveting performances. 

    Joe and Rae Ingram (Neill and Kidman) do the right thing and rescue the half-delirious sole survivor (Zane) of a crippled schooner. But soon the stranger will plunge the unwary pair into an intense battle of cat and mouse. And life or death.
