Senior Moment

Take some time out for a Senior Moment, a hilarious film starring Hollywood heavyweights William Shatner, Christopher Lloyd and Jean Smart as a group of feisty old-timers, who are anything but grown-up. This comedy caper will sweep you away to sunny California for a raucous romp and arrives on UK shores on 28 June for its digital release from 101 Films.

Retired NASA test pilot Victor (Shatner - Star Trek, The Man From U.N.C.L.E.) and best friend Sal (Lloyd - Back To The Future, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest), love nothing more than causing chaos by joyriding Victor's vintage convertible around their home town of Palm Springs. When Victor is caught speeding, he loses his precious driving licence and is forced to use public transport... his worst nightmare... but could it be fate? When he has a chance encounter with the friendly and charitable Caroline (Jean Smart - Frasier, Mare Of Easttown), he enlists Sal's help with his attempts to win over her affection, but Victor has been alone for a long time and his prickliness is enough to put any woman off...

With his sights set on Caroline, Victor must curb his reckless impulses and learn to enjoy a quieter life - will he manage to woo the woman of his dreams and win back his other love, his licence to drive again?

Get ready for a wild ride with Senior Moment - these joyriding geriatrics aren't ready to take things lying down.

Dr Bird's Advice for Sad Poets

Enter the whimsical world of James Whitman (Lucas Jade Zumann), a 16-year-old boy obsessed with poet Walt Whitman, who's reeling from the disappearance of his beloved sister Jorie (Lily Donoghue - Dirty John, Black Christmas) and struggling with anxiety and depression. But his dysfunctional parents: abusive father (Jason Isaacs) and careworn mother (Lisa Edelstein) refuse to confront the issues so there's no one else to turn to except Dr Bird (voiced by Tom Wilkinson - The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Full Monty) a talking pigeon-cum-therapist.

Based on Evan Roskos's best-selling novel, Dr. Bird's Advice For Sad Poets is a dream-like, fantasy drama that follows the trials and tribulations of James as he embarks on a mission to find his sister, win the affections of Sophie (Taylor Russell), a girl at school who joins him on his quest... but her ex-boyfriend Martin (Chase Stokes), could be a problem, as could the strange cult-like guru Xavier (David Arquette), who seems to know more than he's letting on.

The sometimes wild, sometimes hilarious, emotional and visually stunning quest takes the lovestruck teens into a magical realism-inspired world, and - via a strange cult - into the seedy underbelly of New York City's nightlife, where they encounter weird and wonderful parties and surreal situations. Their journey is interspersed with dream-like sequences, theatrical interludes, stunning dance scenes, talking paintings and more, that see James start to question everything he knows and makes him more determined than ever to get the help he needs for his mental health.

With stunning score from Jim Dooley (A Series of Unfortunate Events) and directed by Yaniv Raz in his feature debut, Dr. Bird's Advice For Sad Poets is fantastically fun and just what the doctor ordered; a little bird told us.

The memoirs of Vera Christiane Felscherinow a teenager growing up in West Berlin in the 1970s were told in the mind-blowing bestseller We Children From Bahnhof Zoo aka Zoo Station: The Story of Christiane F., which shocked the world with its explicit tales of partying, drug-use, prostitution and the devastating aftermath. In 1981 it was adapted for the big-screen in cult-classic Christiane F. and now a brand-new TV adaptation brings this dark story bang up to date in a slick, gritty ride through the world of teenage life and the descent into destruction.

We Children From Bahnhof Zoo follows the life of Christiane and her tight-knit group of like-minded souls who are trying to find out who they are, what they want to do with their lives and where the next party's at. This eight-part German series originally aired on Amazon and courtesy of Acorn Media International is now available on digital to buy and keep, and arrives on DVD 14 June 2021.

With its stylish wardrobe and astounding night-club scenes, it has echoes of Babylon Berlin, and director Philipp Kadelbach (Generation War, SS-GB) brings a modern spin with a killer soundtrack from the 1970s, including a feast of Bowie greats, interspersed with a thumping mix of genres from techno to punk, hip-hop to dancehall and more, to create a cutting edge thrill-ride.

As the six friends struggle to find their place in the world, their hedonistic lifestyle amidst Berlin's seedy nightlife, leads them into the dark and dangerous world of drugs, prostitution and addiction.

We follow their rough ride into adulthood that sees Christiane's (Jana Mckinnon - The Trouble With Being Born, Darktown) gradual descent into heroin addiction while Benno's (Michelangelo Fortuzzi - Naked Animals, Druck) habit drives him to lengths he never imagined while paranoid Axel's (Jeremias Meyer - The Old Fox, Vampire Sisters) heartbreaking adoration of Christiane persists and Michi (Bruno Alexander - World On Fire, Eden), secretly in love with Benno competes with Christiane for his affection. Will they be able to overcome their addictions or will they be consumed by them?

This visually stunning, wild and daring take on the harsh realities of life once the partying stops, is an edgy coming of age drama that veers from dreamlike and trippy, to dark and poignant.
