PATCH ADAMS (1998)

Meet Patch Adams (Academy Award® winner Robin Williams), a doctor who doesn’t look, act or think like any doctor you’ve met before. For Patch, humour is the best medicine and he’s willing to do just about anything to make his patients laugh – even if it means risking his own career. Based on a true story, Patch Adams combines side-splitting humour with an inspiring story that transcends the traditional comedy. RATED PG

JAWS (1975)

That’s right, folks. It may be 40 years old, but who can forget the excitement of watching this classic for the first time? Directed by Academy Award® winner Steven Spielberg, Jaws set the standard for edge-of-your-seat suspense, quickly becoming a cultural phenomenon and forever changing the movie industry. When the seaside community of Amity finds itself under attack by a dangerous great white shark, the town’s chief of police (Roy Scheider), a young marine biologist (Richard Dreyfuss) and a grizzled shark hunter (Robert Shaw) embark on a desperate quest to destroy the beast before it strikes again. Featuring an unforgettable score that evokes pure terror, Jaws remains one of the most influential and gripping adventures in motion picture history. RATED 14A – NOT RECOMMENDED FOR YOUNG CHILDREN

WOMAN IN GOLD (2015)

Woman in Gold is the remarkable true story of one woman’s journey to reclaim her heritage and seek justice for what happened to her family. Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann (Helen Mirren) starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Gustav Klimt’s famous painting “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I”. Together with her inexperienced but plucky young lawyer Randy Schoenberg (Ryan Reynolds), she embarks upon a major battle which takes them all the way to the heart of the Austrian establishment and the U.S. Supreme Court and forces her to confront difficult truths about the past along the way. RATED PG Violence, coarse language

MILLION DOLLAR BABY (2004)

“I don’t train girls,” trainer Frankie Dunn growls. But something’s different about the spirited boxing hopeful who shows up daily at Dunn’s gym. All she wants is a fighting chance. Clint Eastwood plays Dunn and directs, produces and composes music for this acclaimed, multi-award winning tale of heart, hope and family. Hilary Swank plays resilient Maggie, determined not to abandon her one dream. And Morgan Freeman is Scrap, gym caretaker and counterpoint to Dunn’s crustiness. Grab your dreams and come out swinging. Million Dollar Baby is an absolute knockout. Winner of 4 Academy Awards®, including Best Picture, Best Director (Eastwood), Best Actress (Swank) and Best Supporting Actor (Freeman). RATED PG Violence, coarse language
