Penny Pincher!

Synopsis

Starring one of France’s biggest box office draws, Dany Boon (‘Welcome to the Sticks’), Penny Pincher tells the story of talented first violinist, François Gautier, 40ish, who has one major flaw: he’s a penny
pincher. He times himself under the shower. He uses the streetlights to light the rooms of his house. He watches the neighbour’s TV through binoculars.

François has no social life; his only friend is his bank manager. Buying drinks for others in the orchestra is painful. Taking a woman on a date is torture. But new cellist Valérie doesn’t see François the penny pincher, she hears - and falls for - François the virtuoso violinist. And then Laura, 16, walks into François’s life and announces she is his daughter. She thinks her father is the wealthy benefactor of a children’s charity in Mexico.

Now François has one major flaw and two major problems: Valérie and Laura both love him for what he is not. Refusing to change his ways, François plays along but a single slipup could cost him very, very dear...

Waru

For Australian sessions, head to: au.demand.film/waru/

A sisterhood of 8 Maori female directors bravely share their insights into the complexity of child abuse, in a sequence of eight short films that seamlessly become one.

At the centre of their stories is Waru, a boy killed at the hands of a caregiver. His tangi, set on a small rural marae, is the centrepiece of the film, but there is an underlying disturbance of heavy themes touching on culture, custom and shame.
