Daily Picks M Magazine September 1 – Saturday

Beck Cole received a standing ovation at the 2011 Adelaide Film Festival for this bold telling of a young Aboriginal mother’s path to personal redemption after incarceration. To the lead role, Shai Pittman brings a raw honesty that has the capacity to be both beguiling and confronting. She leads an overriding narrative about the resilience of Indigenous women. The cast also includes Marcia Langton, in a rare dramatic performance.

8.30pm, ABC

The people of this early 19th-Century Cornwall community are no strangers to grief, two debilitating varieties of which come to the fore. While Captain Poldark (Aidan Turner) is busy righting the wronged underclasses from his new Parliamentary position, a widowed villain has become catatonic with bereavement. The loss felt by a mother forced to relinquish her child is also keenly felt in picturesque scenes that belie her internal agony.

9.40pm, 7flix

Fifteen years after Steven Spielberg’s charmingly Hollywood take on the true story of one man’s 18-year stay at the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, this non-solution to the refugee crisis seems almost preferable to some of those now inflicted upon the desperately fleeing. As a fictional displaced Eastern European from a fictional nation, Tom Hanks is everything we loved about Forrest Gump, but with smarts. Catherine Zeta-Jones co-stars as a kindly flight attendant.
