This fully authorised feature-length documentary celebrates the life and work of Sir Ian McKellen.

Private photo albums and a wealth of never-before-seen archive material, including diaries written when he was 12 and unseen behind the scenes footage of theatre shows and films make this an intimate and intriguing journey.
PROFESSOR MARSTON AND THE WONDER WOMEN (2017)
Starring Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote, Allie Gallerani, Christopher Jon Gombos, J. J. Feild, Connie Britton, Maggie Castle, Pamela Figueiredo and Allie Marshall. Directed by Angela Robinson.

In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of psychologist William Moulton Marston, the polyamorous relationship between his wife and his mistress, the creation of his beloved comic book character Wonder Woman, and the controversy the comic generated.

While Marston's feminist superhero was criticised by censors for her 'sexual perversity', he was keeping a secret that could have destroyed him. Marston's muses for the Wonder Woman character were his wife Elizabeth Marston and their lover Olive Byrne, two empowered women who defied convention: working with Marston on human behavior research -- while building a hidden life with him that rivaled the greatest of superhero disguises.

Its newest resident is Robert Laing an ambitious young doctor utterly seduced by the lifestyle and cutting-edge technology the high-rise has to offer.

Laing meets Wilder, a charismatic provocateur who introduces him to the seedy underbelly of the high-rise. The cracks in this apparently flawless society grow rapidly, and Laing is shocked at the depravity he sees. Life in the high-rise quickly descends into madness and violence, and Laing finds himself amongst the marauding hordes of bloodthirsty tenants who take over the building, floor by floor.
