Madman Entertainment and Luna Palace Cinemas would like to invite you and a guest to an advance screening of PAVAROTTI (rating TBC).
Yuli: The Carlos Acosta Storyis based on the rags-to-renown international career of Cuban ballet star Carlos Acosta, and on his 2007 memoir No Way Home, it stars Acosta as himself, looking back over his career in a story hitting every thematic note – family, sacrifice, maleness, black identity, exile and the transforming power of art.
The film follows Acosta - nicknamed Yuli by his father - from growing up on the streets of his native Cuba, through his time at the country’s National Dance School, to performing at London’s prestigious Royal Ballet.
Spanish director Iciar Bollaín (Even the Rain, The Olive Tree) directs with a romantic swagger, unafraid of the odd splash of kitsch; written by Paul Laverty (I Daniel Blake, The Olive Tree).
The film has received critical acclaim internationally (see critic quotes at the end of this email!) and is opening in Australian cinemas on October 31st . You can take a look at the trailer on the official website to get a better feel for the film - https://www.limelightdistribution.co.nz/film/yuli

From the producers of Finding Your Feet comes this joyous, entertaining and uplifting comedy-drama based on a true story of the traditional Cornish sea shanty singing group.
"This gentle, sweet-natured comedy has warmth and a certain X factor of likability, helped by big-hearted performances." Guardian
A fast-living, cynical London music executive (Danny Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he's pranked by his boss (Noel Clarke) into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen (led by James Purefoy). He becomes the ultimate 'fish out of water' as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families (including Tuppence Middleton) who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. As he's drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he's forced to re-evaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means.
