The Darjeeling Limited – Friday 3rd June at 9pm

Estranged brothers Francis (Owen Wilson), Peter (Adrien Brody) and Jack (Jason Schwartzman) reunite for a train trip across India. The siblings have not spoken in over a year, ever since their father passed away. Francis is recovering from a motorcycle accident, Peter cannot cope with his wife’s pregnancy, and Jack cannot get over his ex-lover. The brothers fall into old patterns of behaviour as Francis reveals the real reason for the reunion is to track down their mother in a Himalayan convent.

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou – Saturday 4th June at 9pm

While making a documentary, famous oceanographer Steve Zissou (Bill Murray) loses his dear friend, who appears to have been eaten by the mysterious jaguar shark.
