      Heaven's Burning

      An unhappily married newlywed fakes her own kidnapping while on holiday in Australia in an attempt to escape from her possessive husband. Her naivety soon leaves her in the company of unlucky getaway driver Russell Crowe, and the pair go on the run together with a host of adversaries in hot pursuit. Intriguingly original thriller, featuring some fantastic scenery, also starring Youki Kudoh, Kenji Isomura and Ray Barrett

    • 5:00am
      The Last Shot

      An FBI agent cooks up a scheme to capture an infamous Mafia boss - but to set up the sting, he must pose as a Hollywood hotshot, convince an aspiring director that he's really going to make his film, and involve dozens of other agents in the 'production'. Unfortunately, it's not long before the glamour of Tinseltown proves more alluring than everyday life, prompting the starstruck lawmen to put their case on the back burner while they focus on making the best movie in the world. Crime comedy, starring Matthew Broderick, Alec Baldwin and Toni Collette

    • 6:35am
      Away From Her

      Bittersweet drama about a devoted couple who, after 50 years of marriage, face an obstacle that threatens to tear them apart. When Fiona develops Alzheimer's disease, she becomes adamant that she will move into a care home to spare her husband the burden of looking after her. However, this places her spouse in the heartbreaking position of having to watch helplessly as his beloved wife slips away from him. Gordon Pinsent and Julie Christie are superb in the lead roles, alongside Olympia Dukakis and Alberta Watson

    • 8:30am
      Dead Poets Society

      A charismatic English teacher at a Fifties New England prep school raises eyebrows among his strait-laced colleagues by encouraging the students to live life beyond their expectations. Unfortunately, the boys find their families and the rest of the teaching staff aren't so understanding about their desire to follow their dreams. Robin Williams is electric in the lead role of this emotional drama, for which he scored an Oscar nomination, while his pupils - including Robert Sean Leonard, Ethan Hawke, Josh Charles and Gale Hansen - are suitably angst-ridden

    • 10:40am
      Delivery Man

      David discovers that he fathered 533 children through sperm donation 20 years ago, and that some of them want to meet him. Comedy featuring Vince Vaughn, Chris Pratt and Cobie Smulders.

    • 12:30pm
      The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

      A renowned but eccentric undersea expert - who may or may not be a fraud - sets out in search of a shark that killed an old friend and crew-mate. But the journey is beset by problems, not least thanks to a British journalist and a man claiming to be the scientist's long-lost son. Cult director Wes Anderson's penchant for whimsy overwhelms this offbeat comedy drama, making it something of an acquired taste - fans of his work will no doubt love it and Bill Murray is a delight as the deadpan explorer, but the uninitiated might find it a little too self-consciously quirky. Owen Wilson, Cate Blanchett and Willem Dafoe also star. The film boasts stop motion animation sea life and a soundtrack of David Bowie songs in Portuguese.

    • 2:30pm

      Manglehorn, a locksmith, tries to move on from his criminal past with the help of a new friend. Drama starring Al Pacino in the title role.

    • 4:10pm

      Fact-based drama, starring Terrence Howard as Jim Ellis, an aspiring teacher in Seventies Philadelphia. When he discovers a crumbling, disused pool, he plans to restore it and turn troubled local teenagers into a swim team that can compete in the state championships - and refuses to let bureaucratic opposition and outright racism get in the way of his dream. With Bernie Mac and Kimberly Elise

    • 6:00pm

      Two convicts escape from prison and embark on a high-profile and very successful bank-robbing spree, but a car accident leaves them with an extra accomplice - a bored housewife who's been yearning for adventure. It's not long before her presence complicates not only their criminal enterprise, but also their friendship, putting their plan of crossing the border to Mexico in jeopardy. Middling crime comedy that fails to capitalise on a decent premise, starring Bruce Willis, Billy Bob Thornton and Cate Blanchett. Directed by Barry Levinson

    • 8:05pm
      Delivery Man

      David discovers that he fathered 533 children through sperm donation 20 years ago, and that some of them want to meet him. Comedy featuring Vince Vaughn, Chris Pratt and Cobie Smulders.

    • 10:00pm
      Night of the Living Dead

      Flesh-eating corpses, brought back to life by radiation from a returning space probe, besiege a group of people in a farmhouse. Judith O'Dea, Duane Jones, Karl Hardman and Marilyn Eastman star in George A Romero's downbeat, low-budget shocker, which caused an outcry on release, went on to spawn a host of imitators and was remade in 1990 with Tony Todd, better known for playing serial killer Candyman. A mesmerising piece of film-making with a chilling, unforgettable ending.

    • 11:40pm
      Cockneys vs Zombies

      Two brothers plan to rob a bank to save their grandfather's retirement home. However, on the day of the heist, an ancient tomb is disturbed in London's Docklands, unleashing a horde of zombies. As the crooks fight their way through the city, the residents of the care home fight back against the besieging undead. Comedy horror, starring Harry Treadaway, Rasmus Hardiker, Richard Briers and Honor Blackman
