Funny and touching film about the goings-on at a French rural boarding school for tearaway children, run by an iron-fisted headmaster. New house master Clement Mathieu arrives for his first term and things begin to unravel. Time Out reckons this is the 16th best French film ever. We like it a lot too.

Clever, angsty comedy about a teenager attempting to save his parents' marriage from the influence of a mullet-headed mystic, while pursuing a relationship of his own with a pyromaniac classmate. This comedy is genuinely funny and full of style.

Jaw-dropping documentary about New York mayoral candidate, Anthony Weiner, and his run for office. With major political support, and a strong association with the Clintons, he ought to be on to a winner; but he may be his own worst enemy. You may watch this in a state of disbelief.
