Events Guide

Autumn / Winter 2012


Welcome to the new season at the Hawkins Theatre – Papakura.


This is undoubtedly the busiest season we have had at the theatre in a very long time where there are only 10 ‘dark’ days out of the 123 of the entire season where we don’t have any events, meetings, workshops, films or hirers in the venue. That equates to an amazing 92% usage from May to August! I’m pleased to say that our films are proving to be a big hit, and we will endeavour to bring you top quality movies from New Zealand and afar. We were delighted to host the director and cast member from REST FOR THE WICKED recently on the final screening of the film. Simon & Elizabeth gave a great insight to the film industry and the night was deemed by many to be a great success. We hope to be able to arrange more of these question & answer sessions where possible in the future. If you’re on Facebook be sure to ‘like’ the Hawkins Theatre page and you will receive notification of these events as they are announced. So, what else is happening around the venue.... The Hawkins Youth Theatre Company has just finished it’s first term and we’re thrilled that we are almost at full capacity for enrolments with only a few places left in both the junior & senior groups. Work will start in earnest shortly for their first annual production which will run from the 5th to 7th October at the theatre. Look out for announcements on our Hawkins Youth Theatre Company Facebook page and in our next Events Guide in August.

Under the wing of Jack Mindy (Sam Neill, THE PIANO), Martin lodges at the home of Lucy (Frances O’Connor, AI: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE), who is grief-stricken after the disappearance of her husband, Jarrah and struggling to care for her two children, Sass and Bike.

Margin Call

Rating: M

“Be first. Be smarter. Or cheat.” Set in the high-stakes world of the financial industry, Margin Call is a thriller entangling the key players at an investment firm during one perilous 24-hour period in the early stages of the 2008 financial crisis. “When entry-level analyst Peter Sullivan (Zachary Quinto) unlocks information that could prove to be the downfall of the firm, a roller-coaster ride ensues as decisions both financial and moral catapult the lives of all involved to the brink of disaster. Expanding the parameters of genre, Margin Call is a riveting examination of the human components of a subject too often relegated to partisan issues of black and white. A portrayal of the financial industry and its denizens as they confront the decisions that shape our global future.” (Sundance Film Festival 2011) All-star cast includes Kevin Spacey, Demi Moore, Paul Bettany and Jeremy Irons.

Rating: PG

“There’s no wisdom worth having that isn’t hard won” “Your horse is a mirror to your soul, and sometimes you may not like what you see. Sometimes, you will.” So says Buck Brannaman, a true American cowboy and sage on horseback who travels extensively for nine grueling months a year helping horses with people problems. Buck, a richly textured and visually stunning film, follows Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his unusual approach to horses. A real-life “horse-whisperer,” he eschews the violence of his upbringing and teaches people to communicate with their horses through instinct, not punishment. Buck possesses near magical abilities as he dramatically transforms horses – and people – with his understanding, compassion and respect. In this film, the animal-human relationship becomes a metaphor for facing the daily challenges of life. A truly American story about an unsung hero, Buck is about an ordinary man who has made an extraordinary life despite tremendous odds. Winner of the Audience Award at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.

The End of the Line

Rating: G

The End of the Line, the first major feature documentary film revealing the impact of overfishing on our oceans, had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. In the film we see firsthand the effects of our global love affair with fish as food. It examines the imminent extinction of bluefin tuna, brought on by increasing western demand for sushi; the impact on marine life resulting in huge overpopulation of jellyfish; and the profound implications of a future world with no fish that would bring certain mass starvation. Filmed over two years, The End of the Line follows the investigative reporter Charles Clover as he confronts politicians and celebrity restaurateurs, who exhibit little regard for the damage they are doing to the oceans. One of his allies is the former tuna farmer turned whistleblower Roberto Mielgo – on the trail of those destroying the world’s magnificent bluefin tuna population. Filmed across the world – from the Straits of Gibraltar to the coasts of Senegal and Alaska to the Tokyo fish market – featuring top scientists, indigenous fishermen and fisheries enforcement officials, The End of the Line is a wake-up call to the world.

Rating: M It’s South Africa 1990. Two major events are about to happen: The release of Nelson Mandela and, more importantly, it’s Spud Milton’s first year at an elite boys only private boarding school. John Milton is a boy from an ordinary background who wins a scholarship to a private school in Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa. Surrounded by boys with nicknames like Gecko, Rambo, Rain Man and Mad Dog, Spud has his hands full trying to adapt to his new home. Along the way Spud takes his first tentative steps along the path to manhood. (The path it seems could be a rather long road). Spud is an only child. He is cursed with parents from well beyond the lunatic fringe and a senile granny. His dad is a fervent anti-communist who is paranoid that the family domestic worker is running a shebeen from her room at the back of the family home. His mom is a free spirit and a teenager’s worst nightmare... John Cleese stars in this South African coming-of age comedy-drama.

We Need To Talk About Kevin

Rating: R16 An exquisitely realized adaptation of Lionel Shriver’s bestselling novel, We Need To Talk About Kevin, the film was a critics and audience favourite following its competition screenings at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. Tilda Swinton turns in a stunning and breathtakingly fragile performance as Eva, a concerned mother with a troubled, angry son - Kevin. Eva is a haunted middle-aged woman trying to grapple with her own feelings towards her son as he grows up to be a brooding teenager, and his unthinkable actions will shatter her life. What was her role in it? Did she resent her son since birth? What could she have done to help him? This is a fearless film that will provoke and enthral audiences in equal measure, raising questions of guilt, regret and loss. At the heart of the story is an eerie portrait of the idea of nature vs nurture, and a bold look at the alienation of parenthood. Chilling but absolutely captivating, We Need To Talk Kevin is directed by visionary filmmaker Lynne Ramsay (Morvern Callar, Ratcatcher), who constructs a mesmerizing, intimate piece of cinema.

Bill Cunningham: New York

For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively & inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours.” Documenting uptown fixtures (Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, David Rockefeller—who all appear in the film out of their love for Bill), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham’s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair.

Sing Your Song

Rating: M

Sing Your Song is the result of a confluence of many events, things as diverse as the passing of Marlon Brando, a look back at the lives of many other unsung heroes in the fight for justice as well as the faithful love (and gentle nagging) of two daughters. Like Brando, there are many public figures who are not known, primarily, for their activism, their compassion and their dedication to human rights. Harry Belafonte is one of them. Sing Your Song is an up close look at a great American, Harry Belafonte. A patriot to the last and a champion for worldwide human rights, Belafonte is one of the truly heroic cultural and political figures of the past 60 years. Told from Harry’s point of view, the film charts his life from a boy born in New York and raised in Jamaica, who returns to Harlem in his early teens where he discovers the magic of performing. From Harlem to Mississippi to Africa and South Central Los Angeles, Sing Your Song takes you on a journey through Harry Belafonte’s life, work and most of all, his conscience, as it inspires us all to action!

Harry’s secret wish is for the Red Arrows to appear at the village fair: Tom’s is to win the heart of Anya. Both seem impossible dreams until the whole village decides to lend a hand.

The Bang Bang Club

Rating: R16

The Bang Bang Club is the real life story of a group of four young combat photographers Greg Marinovich, Joao Silva, Kevin Carter and Ken Oosterbroek Bonded by friendship and their sense of purpose to tell the truth. They risked their lives to tell the world of the brutality and violence associated with the first free elections in post Apartheid South Africa in the early 90s. This intense political period brought out their best work (two won Pulitzers) but cost them a heavy price. The film, based on the book of the same name by Marinovich and Silva, tells the remarkable and sometimes harrowing story of these young men - and the extraordinary extremes they went to in order to capture their pictures. The film stars Ryan Phillippe, Malin Akerman and Taylor Kitsch and explores the thrill, danger and moral questions associated with exposing the truth.

Rating: M Starbuck An audience favourite at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival, Starbuck focuses on David Wozniak, a lovable, middle-aged man who’s a bit of a train-wreck. A disappointment to his family and his pregnant girlfriend Valerie – he also owes a decent amount of money to some loan sharks. Yet things are about to get even worse. His life is upended when a lawyer informs him he’s fathered no less than 533 children via his regular sperm bank donations more than two decades earlier, under the nickname Starbuck. And now a hundred or so of the young-adult offspring have gotten together to take legal action to reveal the true identity of their father. What sounds like an outlandish premise turns into a sparkling crowd-pleaser. With an immensely likeable main character, and a poignant comedy script that goes in unexpected directions, Starbuck is a charming, smart, funny and tender film that speaks volumes about what it means to be a family. In French with English subtitles. In Advance: Adults $8 Concessions $6 Mon 20th & Thurs 30th August On Door: Adults $11 Concessions $9 12.30pm & 7.30pm
