          Writer/director Julien Rappeneaus follow-up to his 2016 debut hit Rosalie Blum, OF LOVE AND LIES is an uplifting story about the power of a childs love, and the lengths that one boy will go to to help get his fathers life back on track. Irrepressible 12-year old Tho (star-in-the-...making Maleaume Paquin) is nicknamed Fourmi Ant due to his diminutive stature. He wants nothing more than to offer hope to his disillusioned father, Laurent (the wonderful Franois Damiens), a loving but lonely man struggling to deal with both retrenchment and separation from Thos mother Chlo (Ludivine Sagnier). An opportunity comes when Tho is invited to try out for the youth training programme of English football club Arsenal. Despite showing obvious talent, hes rejected for being too small, but doesnt have the heart to impose yet another disappointment on his father. So Tho impulsively articulates a well-meaning fiction one that quickly spirals and overtakes not just his life, but all those around him. As with Rosalie Blum, Rappeneau demonstrates skill at bringing empathy, humour and charm to the lives of ordinary people with this rousing and heartfelt story. Its timeless message of determination and community will speak to viewers of any age or size.

          King Henry VIII of England discards one wife, Catharine of Aragon, who has failed to produce a male heir, in favor of the young and beautiful Anne Boleyn. One of the most tragic tales of love and despair ever put to film Anne Of The Thousand Days is the remarkable true account of... King Henry VIII of England and his ill-fated marriage to Anne Boleyn. In an Oscar nominated role as the notorious and all-powerful king, Richard Burton (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) swings his abundant influence to secure the young and innocently alluring Anne Boleyn (Oscar nominee Genevieve Bujold, Dead Ringers) as his new bride. Initially wary of the king's blustering ways Anne soon becomes intoxicated by the sheer power and control that the king's love represents. A visually sumptuous production from Hal B. Wallis (Casablanca), featuring Irene Papas (Z) and Anthony Quayle (Lawrence of Arabia) in supporting roles, Anne Of The Thousand Days is a haunting epic set against the pageantry, excess and political intrigue of 16th Century England.
