Synopsis:
Flynn (1993)
Errol Flynn (1909-1959) was the son of a highly respected Australian scientist, and was given the opportunity to have an excellent education. However, his athletic and restless spirit caused him to get into trouble constantly, and he soon bailed out of school to go on and have a series of amazing adventures at least as wild as anything he portrayed as a movie star in the 1930s and 1940s. He was the living embodiment of the swashbucklers he portrayed onscreen. This biographical drama covers Flynn's (Guy Pearce) life from the period in the early twenties when he's homeless and living on the streets in Sydney, through a series of adventures with a pro-Nazi German man in New Guinea, to his return to Sydney and the beginnings of his serious involvement in theater.
Shergar (1999)
Kevin Doherty (Tom Walsh), the orphaned son of a jockey, dreams of racing horses like his father, but instead finds himself in the middle of a terrorist plot to kidnap Shergar, Ireland's greatest racehorse. Terrorist Gavin O'Rourke (Mickey Rourke), and his second-in-command Dermot Concannon steal Shergar away to a remote farm owned by Eammon Garritty (David Warner). Unknown to the kidnappers, teenage runaway, Kevin, lives in the hayloft of the Garritty farm and is aware of Shergar's identity. Though initially elated at being charged with the horse's keep, Kevin is horrified when he hears of Shergar's impending execution and resolves to ride the horse to freedom.Staying only steps ahead of the kidnappers and the authorities, Kevin alters the appearance of the instantly recognisable horse. While on the run, Kevin meets travelling poet and horseman Joe Maguire (Ian Holm) and his beautiful, free-spirited granddaughter, Kate. The kindness they show Kevin allows him to experience love and family for the first time. The chase gains momentum when Shergar's disguise washes away, forcing Kevin to flee and leave his new friends behind. As Kevin races Shergar toward the Cliffs of Mohar, with the terrorists in hot pursuit, he faces the decision of a lifetime...
