All of Us Strangers.
Theatrical. January 19. 2024
One night in his near-empty tower block in contemporary London, Adam (Andrew Scott) has a chance encounter with a mysterious neighbor Harry (Paul Mescal), which punctures the rhythm of his everyday life. As a relationship develops between them, Adam is preoccupied with memories of the past and finds himself drawn back to the suburban town where he grew up, and the childhood home where his parents (Claire Foy and Jamie Bell), appear to be living, just as they were on the day they died, 30 years before.
I Get Knocked Down
Digital. October 10, 2023
Freestyle Digital Media, the digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Allen Media Group, has acquired U.S. VOD rights to the documentary feature film I GET KNOCKED DOWN. I GET KNOCKED DOWN will be available to rent/own on all digital HD internet, cable, and satellite platforms in the U.S., as well as on DVD, starting on October 10, 2023, through Freestyle Digital Media.
I GET KNOCKED DOWN is the untold story of a burnt-out middle-aged ex-pop star in search of his long-lost anarchist mojo. Part music documentary, part unflinching character study, part a punk version of ‘A Christmas Carol’ – I Get Knocked Down is the funny, surreal, and deeply human untold story of Chumbawamba and its ex-front man Dunstan Bruce. Bruce is 59 and he’s struggling with the fact that the world seems to be going to hell in a handcart. He’s wondering where did it all go wrong? Twenty years after his fall from grace, the former frontman of the anarchist band Chumbawamba is angry and frustrated. But how does a middle-aged, retired radical, who now feels invisible get back up again? In this punk version of Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ Dunstan is visited by the antagonistic ghost of his anarchist past. It is his alter ego, ‘Babyhead’ who forces him to question his own life, sending him on a search for his long-lost anarchist mojo. This is the untold and remarkable story of Chumbawamba and Dunstan’s personal redemptive voyage as well as a call to arms to those who think activism is best undertaken by someone else. An extraordinary, inspiring film for our times.
Written and directed by Emmy-winner Sophie Robinson & Dunstan Bruce, I GET KNOCKED DOWN was produced by Sophie Robinson and features Dunstan Bruce, Ken Loach, and the band members of Chumbawamba.
“We never set out to make a straight-up music documentary,” said Dunstan Bruce. “We wanted to do something different with the film that didn’t just appeal to Chumbawamba fans, but that also would resonate with anyone who has faced adversity and remains resolute to get back up again.”

Directed, written and starring Alice Englert (You Won’t Be Alone), alongside Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly (Top Gun: Maverick), Ben Whishaw (Skyfall, Passages) and Dasha Nekrasova (The Scary of Sixty-First), the blackly comic is set to arrive in Australian cinemas nationally on November 2, 2023.

Off-grid at the ranch at the foot of Mount Hypnos, Lucy hopes she’ll find the peace, sympathy and validation she’s paid good money for. Unfortunately for her, so do all the other egocentric attendees. The film also stars New Zealanders Ana Scotney, Beulah Koale and Marlon Williams.
BAD BEHAVIOUR was produced by Desray Armstrong (Coming Home in the Dark, Juniper) and Molly Hallam (The Mustang). The film was made with funding from the New Zealand Film Commission, the New Zealand Government’s Screen Production Grant, Fulcrum Media Finance and Bee-Hive Productions, with additional support from the New Zealand Government’s Screen Production Recovery Fund, Ahi and Images & Sound.
