    Strong war themes and violence
    For three and a half hours, in the pouring rain, amid the mud and shattered trees of a rubber plantation called Long Tan, Major Harry Smith and his dispersed company of 108 young and mostly inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers are fighting for their lives, holding off an overwhelming enemy force of 2,500 battle hardened Viet Cong and North Vietnamese soldiers. With their ammunition running out, their casualties mounting and the enemy massing for a final assault, each man begins to search for the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honour, decency and courage.

    Based on the award-winning novel by Lisa Klein, OPHELIA is a dynamic re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Hamlet told from an unexpected point of view. Set in the 14th century but spoken in a contemporary voice, Ophelia takes centre stage in the untold story of her tragic romance with Hamlet and her relationship with his mother, Queen Gertrude (Naomi Watts). A wild and motherless child, Ophelia (Daisy Ridley) is taken into Elsinore Castle under the wing of Queen Gertrude and becomes her most trusted lady-in-waiting. Growing into a beautiful and intelligent young woman, she soon captures the attention of the handsome Prince Hamlet (George MacKay). While she learns the ways of power and plotting in court, an undeniable love between Ophelia and the Prince blossoms in secret. As war brews with a neighbouring kingdom, lust and betrayal are tearing Elsinore apart from within – the King has been murdered, driving Prince Hamlet into a downward spiral of vengeful torment. Ophelia must decide between her true love or her own life and devises a plan to escape Elsinore forever, in order to protect a very dangerous secret.
