Cinema 1: Sweeney Todd
(M18 - violence) (117 minutes)

Johnny Depp and Tim Burton join forces again in a big-screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheims award-winning musical thriller Sweeney Todd. Depp stars in the title role as a man unjustly sent to prison who vows revenge, not only for that cruel punishment, but for the devastating consequences of what happened to his wife and daughter. When he returns to reopen his barber shop, Sweeney Todd becomes the Demon Barber of Fleet Street who shaved the heads of gentlemen who never thereafter were heard from again. Also starring Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Timothy Spall and Sacha Baron Cohen. Nominated for 3 Academy Awards including Best Actor (Depp), Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design.

 


Cinema 2: Juno
(NC16 - sexual references) (92 minutes)

Sixteen year-old Juno MacGuff is the type of girl that beats to her own drummer, and doesn't really care what others may think of her. She learns that she's pregnant from a one-time sexual encounter with her best friend, Paulie Bleeker. Juno and Paulie like each other, but don't consider themselves to be exclusive boyfriend/girlfriend let alone be ready to be a family complete with child. She decides to have the baby and give it up for adoption. She puts up an ad in the paper and finds her baby's prospective parents - Mark and Vanessa Loring, a yuppie couple living in the suburbs. During the second and third trimesters of Juno's pregnancy which she treats with care but detachment, Juno's relationships with her family, with Paulie, and with the Lorings develop, the latter whose on the surface perfect life masks some hidden problems.
