Heading to the movies this weekend? Pick from one of these great local flicks

INFINITE MAN: A man’s attempts to construct the ultimate romantic weekend backfire when his quest for perfection traps his lover in an infinite loop.
Cinema Australia say: One of the year’s great Australian films. A tight script that’s full of laughs with a dash of smarts.

FELONY: Felony sees a decorated police officer (Joel Edgerton) run a young cyclist off the road in his car after celebratory drinks with his colleagues for busting up a major gang. As he administers CPR, and on-duty police arrive, he changes his story about the accident which will alter all their lives.
Cinema Australia say: Joel Edgerton proves once again he’s more than just an actor, he’s also an incredible script writer. An excellent local thriller with an exceptional cast.
Interview: We chat with Joel Edgerton and director Matthew Saville.

THESE FINAL HOURS: A young man makes his way to the party to end all parties on the last day on Earth, but ends up saving the life of a little girl searching for her father, she ultimately leads him on a path to redemption.

CHARLIE’S COUNTRY: Blackfella Charlie is getting older, and he’s out of sorts. The intervention is making life more difficult on his remote community, what with the proper policing of whitefella laws that don’t generally make much sense, and Charlie’s kin and ken seeming more interested in going along with things than doing anything about it. So Charlie takes off, to live the old way, but in doing so sets off a chain of events in his life that has him return to his community chastened, and somewhat the wiser.
Cinema Australia say: Rolf de Heer and David Gulpilil at their finest.
Interview: Read our interview with legendary Australian director Rolf de Heer here.

THE ROVER: Ten years following a collapse of the western economic system, the rule of law has disintegrated and life is cheap. Eric travels the desolate towns and roads of the Australian outback. He will go to any lengths to take back the one thing that matters to him. From the director of Animal Kingdom.
Cinema Australia say: Guy Pearce would have to be one of the world’s most underrated actors, partnering with Robert Pattinson the two make a dynamic duo.
