Film: The Royal Hotel

Hanna (Julia Garner) and Liv (Jessica Henwick) are two backpackers in Australia who take up a temporary live-in job in a remote Outback mining town where they are told ‘You might get a bit of male attention’. Soon they find themselves trapped in an unnerving situation that grows rapidly out of their control. Also stars Hugo Weaving and Toby Wallace.

Television: I’m a Virgo
This television series is an absurdist comedy that follows the adventures of a 13-foot man. It premiered at the South by Southwest festival earlier in the year and was met with critical acclaim. The director, Boots Riley (Sorry to Bother You), once again shows his creativity and expertise by expanding into the television form with I’m a Virgo.
Album: Run With Me, Bryan Webb
Bryan Webb welcomes us back from a hiatus with Run With Me. After being the front-man for popular rock band Constantines for four years, he lost his spark for music. However, he is back as a solo artist, channeling a bare-boned, upfront, quiet, and melodic sound. It is a ten-track album released only a few weeks ago, so make sure you hop on it and give it a listen!
