 A Promise
Cover Art
Hi-Res (DVD)
A Promise

Germany, 1912. Friedrich (Richard Madden, Cinderella), a graduate of humble origins, takes up a clerical post in a steel factory, soon becoming the elderly owner Karl’s (Alan Rickman, Harry Potter) private secretary and boarder. There he meets Lotte (Rebecca Hall, Iron Man 3), Karl’s reserved and beautiful young wife. Starting an illicit romance, the two young lovers’ dreams are dashed when Karl announces he’s sending his secretary to oversee his mines in Mexico. But Lotte makes a promise to Friedrich: when he returns in two years, she will be his no matter what. With the later outbreak of World War I prohibiting his return to Germany, Friedrich must wait eight long years before returning to Europe and finding out if the woman he pines for has kept her promise during that brutal passage of time. With lush period detail, director Patrice Leconte’s A PROMISE is a sumptuous testament to the enduring power of love.

Focusing on the small subtle changes as people grow up and grow old whilst being apart, 'Everyday' is a story of survival and love, a celebration of the small pleasures of everyday life.

Reluctant Fundamentalist, The

Based on the international bestseller, THE RELUCTANT FUNDAMENTALIST is both a gripping thriller and a fascinating look at the post-9/11 world. Kate Hudson (Glee, Something Borrowed), Kiefer Sutherland (24, Touch) and Liev Schreiber (X-Men Origins, Repo Men) lead a powerful cast in the story of a young man caught in the middle of an unfolding international crisis. When an American academic in Pakistan is kidnapped by anti-American radicals, the CIA thinks popular young Pakistani professor Changez (Riz Ahmed, Trishna) is involved. But as Changez tells his remarkable story about his life in the US - including his rising career on Wall Street and passionate relationship with a beautiful New York artist - to an American foreign correspondent, the truth becomes harder to pin down. Acclaimed director Mira Nair’s (Monsoon Wedding) adaptation of Mohsin Hamid’s novel is a tense tale of hidden agendas and best intentions gone wrong.
