1. WATCH: Emma

Based on the celebrated novel by Jane Austen, this new film adaptation promises big laughs (Bill Nighy stars as Mr. Woodhouse) and plenty of inspirational, badass-female moments. While we all know the story of Emma (a well-meaning but selfish young woman of 1800's England who likes to meddle with her friends' love lives), this version gives the story fresh meaning and serves as a charming commentary on the status of love and relationships in the digital age.

Emma is in cinemas from today.

2. WATCH & EAT: Asian Food and Film: Parasite, The Farewell and Jimami Tofu 

Head to the BEMAC (Queensland Multicultural Centre) this weekend to catch three of the past year's most talked-about Asian films: Parasite, The Farewell and Jimami Tofu. The inaugural event is part of the BrisAsia Festival, and will include Asian food packages for those feeling peckish.
