Love & Gelato

Oh yes, let the escapism begin. While this film isn't for everyone (bar those that absolutely loved Emily In Paris or The Bold Type), it is the kind of flick you can switch on for a well-deserved break from the news or you know, heavy true crime documentaries. Lina, a 17-year-old American, finds herself having to travel to Rome to honour her mother's memory. Catapulted into an unknown country, too messy and full of chaos for her serious, methodical and even a little nerdy nature, she has to reckon with her obsessions, anxieties and fears. For us, we're loving this one for the Italian fashion montages and beautiful Roma scenery. Watch it from June 22.


Okay, we’re here for Chris Hemsworth and Miles Teller. In a state-of-the-art penitentiary run by brilliant visionary Steve Abnesti (Chris Hemsworth), inmates wear a surgically attached device that administers dosages of mind-altering drugs in exchange for commuted sentences. There are no bars, no cells, or orange jumpsuits. In Spiderhead, incarcerated volunteers are free to be themselves. Until they’re not. At times, they’re a better version. Need to lighten up? There’s a drug for that. At a loss for words? There’s a drug for that, too.

Eager to prove herself, Lola volunteers to fill a vacant position on the Vaughn sheep farm as a farmhand. Naturally, Lola doesn’t seem cut out for the tough work of mending fences and wrangling sheep, but she and the dashing station manager Max (Adam Demos) strike up a little bit more than friendship as he trains her. Watch it here.

Senior Year

Let’s be honest, a movie starring Rebel Wilson is always a good idea. After a cheerleader (Wilson) falls off a pyramid and into a 20-year coma, she wakes up as a 37-year-old woman, ready to return to high school, regain her status and claim the prom queen crown that eluded her. We’re also loving this one because it features another Aussie you’ll be familiar with—Angourie Rice. Watch it here.
