An APIA Young at Heart Film Festival favourite Dame Judi Dench has graced the cover of British Vogue this month. She is their oldest cover girl yet - just don't talk to her about ageing or retirement!
In a picturesque English village, the contented retirement of Joan Stanley (Dame Judi Dench) is shattered as she is shockingly arrested by MI5 and accused of providing intelligence to Communist Russia. Rewind to her Cambridge University days and a relationship with a young communist inspires her to see the world in a new light. As her post-war career takes her to a top secret nuclear facility, she is faced with a life changing dilemma. Based on an extraordinary true story, see RED JOAN now on iTunes, Google Play and YouTube or stream on Foxtel and Prime Video.
Bunker down with the 2018 comedy SWIMMING WITH MEN. Funny man Rob Brydon plays accountant Eric who, when faced with a full-blown mid-life crisis, joins an all-male synchronised swimming group. If this unlikely band of misfits can become a real team they might just have a shot at winning a title and maybe even one at turning their lives around. A fantastic cast including Charlotte Riley and Jim Carter support Brydon in this feel-good comedy from BAFTA nominee Oliver Parker. See it on iTunes, Google Play or YouTube.
