Lost: Season 4

Man on Wire - The acclaimed documentary, winner of the New York Critics prize for best doc of 2008.

Mister Foe - Jamie Bell is Hallam Foe, a troubled young man whose knack for voyeurism paradoxically reveals his darkest fears, and his most peculiar desires. Driven to expose the true cause of his mother’s death, he instead finds himself searching the rooftops of the city of Edinburgh for love. Featuring a lively soundtrack with Franz Ferdinand, Sons and Daughters and Orange Juice among others, MISTER FOE is a darkly twisted, entertaining work of magical realism from one of the leading lights of the new Scottish cinema.

Nina's Heavenly Delights - NINA'S HEAVENLY DELIGHTS is a surprising love story where Scottish humor meets Bollywood spectacle! It follows the mixed fortunes of a Glaswegian family, THE SHAHS and their award winning Indian restaurant, THE NEW TAJ.

Teenage Angst - On the shores of a deceptively peaceful mountain lake, inside a picturesque castle-cum-boarding school, four bored young men from ├╝ber-wealthy families create a clique, replete with sexually charged rites and rituals. Desiring to break free from the gilded cage in which their parents have deposited them, they sneak off campus at night to party, skinny dip and play increasingly dangerous games. The stronger-willed guys lord it over the weaker ones, until inevitably, bad things start to happen.
