In this first authorised documentary about the legendary John Farnham, we follow the Australian music icon’s life from quiet beginnings in suburban Melbourne to pop fame in the 1960s to record-breaking success as ‘Australia’s Voice’. Nobody ever questioned that Farnham could sing, but the challenge to find his artistic voice took a lifetime. “Whispering Jack”, released when he was 38, is still the highest selling Australian album of all time, and this powerful documentary tracks the personal and public journey that has made Farnham one of our most beloved performers.

With commentary from the likes of Jimmy Barnes, Celine Dion, Richard Marx, Olivia Newton-John, Robbie Williams and Glenn Wheatley, this crowd-pleaser has gone on to become the most successful Australian music documentary in history after only a few weeks in release. Would you expect any less from Farnsy?

Nearly two years after he became Brooklyn’s one and only Spider-Man, Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) is still struggling to balance his superhero duties with his parents’ expectations. And the only people who would understand his predicament – his fellow Spider-People, namely Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) – aren’t even in the same universe. That is, until a portal-covered villain known as The Spot (Jason Schwartzman) threatens the stability of the Multiverse, bringing Gwen back into Miles’ life – and revealing an entire society of Spider-People headed up by Miguel O’Hara (Oscar Isaac).

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse manages to pull off the impossible by living up to its inventive, ground-breaking, Oscar-winning 2018 predecessor. Visually dazzling and boundlessly entertaining, the only thing not to like about this sequel is that it’s just part two of an epic trilogy, with the final chapter hopefully arriving next year.
