Rams (PG)

In remote Western Australia, two estranged brothers, Colin (Sam Neill) and Les (Michael Caton), are at war. Raising separate flocks of sheep descended from their family’s prized bloodline, the two men work side by side yet are worlds apart. When Les’s prize ram is diagnosed with a rare lethal illness, authorities order a purge of every sheep in the valley. While Colin attempts to stealthily outwit the powers that be, Les opts for angry defiance. But will the warring brothers be able to set aside their differences and work together to save their sheep, their legacy, and their community?
Directed by Jeremy Sims, written by Jules Duncan, and co-starring Miranda Richardson and Asher Keddie, this new Aussie comedic drama is a re-imagining of the Icelandic film Rams (2015) by Grímur Hákonarson, which has previously screened at the James.

Goldfinger (1964)

As a tribute to the late Sean Connery, join us in what is widely regarded as the greatest James Bond movie of them all.
In Goldfinger, Special Agent 007 (Sean Connery) comes face to face with one of the most notorious villains of all time, and now he must outwit and outgun the powerful tycoon to prevent him from cashing in on a devious scheme to raid Fort Knox — and obliterate the world’s economy. Goldfinger is where James Bond as we know him comes into focus, and Bond became a legend. It features one of 007’s iconic lines (“A martini. Shaken, not stirred”), Shirley Bassey’s operatic theme, the Aston Martin, and Shirley Eaton, killed with magnificently macabre gold paint
Goldfinger was the third film in the James Bond franchise but the film, starring Sean Connery, is the gold standard for all Bond films.
