  • Testament of Youth

    Testament of Youth

    In 1914, Vera (Swedish actress Alicia Vikander, from Ex-Machina and A Royal Affair) overcomes the restraints on women of the time to become a student at Somerville College, Oxford. When WWI breaks out, her brother and her fiancé are sent to serve at the front lines. Vera leaves college to join the Voluntary Aid Detachment as a nurse tending the wounded in London, Malta and France. A searing story of love based on the classic bestselling memoir by Vera Brittain. “From first to last, Testament of Youth sweeps you away. Unapologetically emotional and impeccably made in the classic manner, it tells the kind of potent, many-sided story whose unforeseen complexities can come only courtesy of a life that lived them all.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

  • Little England (Mikra Anglia)

    Little England (Mikra Anglia)

    Beginning July 5. Young Orsa is passionately in love with sailor Spyros, a secret she dares not reveal to anyone, least of all her domineering mother Mina. Her sister, Moscha, is determined to leave Andros and escape the woman's fate on the island: marrying sailors, who are constantly absent due to their duties. Mina, herself the wife of a captain who prefers the ocean over his home, constantly ponders the reward for a life of marital faithfulness and inadvertently attempts to pass her logic onto her daughters to protect them from the heartache of marrying seafarers. Set during the 1930's and 40's on the picturesque Greek island of Andros, Little England won a boatload of prizes at the Greek Film Awards and was a hit at the local box office. “A woman's picture in the most positive sense of the word, this [is a] handsomely mounted and impeccably acted film.” - Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter
