The Fault In Our Stars Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Gus (Ansel Elgort) share a sarcastic sense of humour, a distaste for convention, and ultimately, a love that will sweep them onto a transformative journey that they – and you – will never forget. Although the two teens face extraordinary challenges, their courage and dedication to each other prove that while life isn’t perfect, love is. Laura Dern (TV’s Enlightened, The Master) and Willem Dafoe (Out of the Furnace, Spider-Man films) also star in this powerfully moving film based on John Green’s best-selling novel. Juno Don’t miss the outrageously offbeat comedy hit that has everyone talking— and laughing! Juno MacGuff (Ellen Page - X-MEN) is a cool, confident teenager who takes a nine-month detour into adulthood when she’s faced with an unplanned pregnancy—and sets out to find the perfect parents for her baby. With the help of her charmingly unassuming boyfriend (Michael Cera – Superbad), supportive dad (J.K. Simmons) and no-nonsense step mum (Allison Janney) Juno sets her sights on an affluent couple (Jennifer Garner and Jason Bateman) longing to adopt their first child. 500 Days of Summer In this anti-romantic comedy about love and fate, a young greeting card writer (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is hopelessly, helplessly searching for the girl of his dreams...and his new co-worker, Summer Finn (Zooey Deschanel), may just be “the one.” But the 500 days of their offbeat relationship reveal (in no particular order) that the road to happiness can be unpredictable, uncontrollable — and unbelievably funny! This is not a love story. This is a story about love. Features songs from The Smiths, Doves, Regina Spektor and The Temper Trap.
