When the violent leader of an Australian motorcycle gang gets out of prison, his deputy must choose between loyalty and family. In the wake of Animal Kingdom and Snowtown comes this old-school crime story, involving feuds and allegiances in a contemporary Australian setting. It opens with Paddo (Ryan Corr) running motorcycle gang The Copperheads, which he has done since its de facto leader Knuck (a terrifying turn by screenwriter and ex-professional rugby league footballer Matt Nable) went to jail. Just as the boss is about to be released, Paddo’s brother is caught stealing heroin from a rival gang. He only escapes with his life on condition that the two gangs work together – something Knuck would never agree to. What ensues is almost Shakespearean, with its tale of loyalty and double-crossing, as Paddo decides whether to oust Knuck in order to save his sibling. Damon Wise In April 1980, six gunmen took control of the Iranian Embassy in London. This is the story of the SAS operation that ended the siege. When a group of radical Iranian Arabs took over the Iranian Embassy in London, only two things were clear: the heavily armed men would deliver on their promise to kill all 26 hostages if their demands were not met, and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher would never bow to terrorists. The middle ground in this Mexican stand-off is the tense, true-life setting for Toa Fraser’s gripping drama, which stars Mark Strong as Chief Inspector Max Vernon, the negotiator brought in to prevent bloodshed, and Jamie Bell as cool-headed SAS team leader Rusty Firmin. Blending newsreel with pulse-quickening reconstruction, 6 Days is both a story of heroism on terror’s frontline and a timely reminder of the capital’s endurance. London can take it. Damon Wise Young brainiac Lynn uses a very special set of skills in this kickass thriller, set in the high-stakes world of entrance exams for elite international universities. At a prestigious new school, scholarship student Lynn quickly finds herself in demand by affluent classmates who are neither bright nor hard-working enough to get the grades they need. But cheating isn’t easy, and to game the system Lynn and her friends have to come up with ever more elaborate ways to codify the answers. As the tension ramps up when the operation goes international, an enemy lurks, waiting to entrap Lynn. With a super-charming young cast, this Thai teen movie provides enough twists and thrills to compete with any Hollywood crime caper, and will delight anyone familiar with that night-before-your-GCSEs feeling. See it before it’s banned by schools. Kate Taylor BAD GENIUS ฉลาดเกมส์โกง 6 DAYS BRITISH
