Review Writers Wanted + What's On This Week

22nd May, 2013

Preparations are well underway for our upcoming programme, and we’re now seeking review writers for our Semester Two 2013 booklet. Read on to find out how to volunteer, but first, here’s what we’re showing this week:

• Wed 22 May @ 8 PM: LAWLESS

In Depression-era Virginia, a bootlegging gang is threatened by authorities who want a cut of their profits. Featuring an all-star cast including Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska.

• Fri 24 May @ 8 PM: I GIVE IT A YEAR followed by TWO LITTLE BOYS

I GIVE IT A YEAR follows a newlywed couple (Rose Byrne and Rafe Spall) in their first year of marriage, amidst trials, tribulations, attractive alternatives, and everyone around them doubting that their relationship can last.

Then, in TWO LITTLE BOYS, two friends (Hamish Blake and Flight of the Conchord's Bret McKenzie) find their friendship put to the test when an unfortunate incident occurs involving a meat pie, a cat and the death of a Scandinavian soccer star.

• Sat 25 May @ **7 PM**: OBLIVION followed by IDENTITY THIEF

Tom Cruise stars as a lone repairman on Earth in a post-apocalyptic future where the planet's surface has long been devastated by war. But when he discovers a crashed spacecraft, he begins to question everything he believed about the war.

Then, in IDENTITY THIEF, a mild-mannered businessman (Jason Bateman) discovers that his identity has been stolen and embarks on a cross-country quest to bring the deceptively harmless-looking thief (Melissa McCarthy) to justice.


It’s that time of the year again -- we're currently looking for volunteers interested in helping write reviews for our Semester Two 2013 booklet!

These reviews will be published in our 64-page booklet that all members receive at the beginning of each semester, as well as on our website. Reviews will need to be approximately 200-250 words in length and completed over a period of 7-10 days in mid-June, so please only volunteer if you think you’ll have time around then to write your reviews.

Successful volunteers will be sent a list of films from which they can nominate the ones they’d like to write reviews for, and you’re welcome to write just one review or as many as you’d like.

Please also note that:
1. The ANU Film Group does not provide reviewers with tickets to, or a copy of, films that they have been assigned to review.
2. Unsolicited reviews will not be accepted.

So if you love movies or writing -- or both -- be sure to respond to this message, or write to us at by SATURDAY 1 JUNE.

P.S. Film suggestions also close on Saturday 1 June, so don’t forget to suggest films that you’d like to see on our upcoming programme by clicking HERE.
