Cinema 1 - The Departed - M18 (Consumer advice: Coarse language and violence)
[NOTE: We are showcasing an edited version of the film.]
An all-star cast - Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson - brings this remake of Lau Wai Keung and Alan Mak's INFERNAL AFFAIRS to worldwide audiences. Martin Scorsese's film follows the story of two Boston police officers, one of whom is a member of the Irish Mafia who has infiltrated the ranks of the police. The other is a bona fide cop sent on an undercover mission to join the Irish Mafia. Significantly different in treatment and tone, yet recognizable as a derivative of the original, THE DEPARTED is one Scorsese you shouldn't miss.
Cinema 2 - The Guardian - PG (Consumer advice: Nil)
After losing his crew in a fatal crash, legendary rescue swimmer Ben Randall (Kevin Costner) is sent to teach at "A" School, an elite training programme for Coast Guard Rescue Swimmers. Wrestling with the loss of his crew members, he throws himself fully into his teaching, turning the programme upside down with his unorthodox training methods. He encounters a young, cocky swim champ, Jake Fischer (Ashton Kutcher), who is driven to be the best. Upon graduation, Jake follows Randall to Alaska, where they face the inherent dangers of the Bering Sea. The youngster learns, firsthand, the true meaning of heroism and sacrifice, echoing the Swimmer's motto..."So Others May Live!" Directed by Andrew Davis.
