Love Between The Covers is an acclaimed documentary about the little known, surprisingly powerful community of women who read and write romance novels. While romance novels and their signature covers are ubiquitous around the world and romance novels are sold in 34 languages, the global community of millions of women who read, write, and love them remains oddly invisible.
Love Between The Covers is the fascinating story of six very different authors within a powerhouse industry that’s on the cusp of an irreversible change. For three years, we follow their lives as they build their businesses, find and lose loved ones, cope with a tsunami of change in publishing and earn a living doing what they love - while empowering others to do the same. See what goes on behind the scenes at some of romance’s biggest publishing houses.
Feature film directed by Andrew Dominik (The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, Killing Them Softly, Chopper).
Visually unique, One More Time With Feeling is a stark, fragile and raw documentary probing the tragic and deeply personal circumstances surrounding the writing and recording of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' sixteenth studio album, Skeleton Tree, following the heart-breaking loss of Nick Cave's son.
Filmed in black and white with interjected voice-over commentary by Nick Cave and with interviews and live performance by the band in the studio, the result is a true testament to an artist trying to find his way through the darkness.
A candid look into the mind of Britain's best-loved writer, Alan Bennett; award-winning dramatist and screenwriter best known to audiences around the world for his distinguished career as playwright including 'The Madness of King George' and 'The Lady in the Van'.
Inspired by Bennett's acerbic and often hilarious diaries, this new film provides a rare insight into the life of an icon of modern British culture. Intimate encounters, filmed over the course of year, reveal a writer who is bemused by his own popularity and is still as angry and irreverent in his eighties as he was in his twenties.
