DVD and fiction standsIf you’re a fan of the New Zealand director Jane Campion you’ll be aware of her Oscar winning film the Piano. This Saturday 13 July her mini series Top of the Lake starts at 2100 on BBC 2 starring  Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss. Top of the Lake is a crime drama set in New Zealand’s South Island.

Here at Hillcroft’s Learning Resources Centre we like to offer films by inspirational female film directors like Jane Campion so you can also borrow from us some of her other films from our Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC):

Bright Star – starring Abbie Cornish  and Ben Whishaw about the relationship of Fannie Brawn and the romantic poet John Keats.

In the Cut – starring Meg Ryan and Mark Ruffalo about Frannie a university lecturer who falls for a New York detective investigating a number of murders.

Read the reviews of In the Cut, Brightstar and The Piano on the Internet Movie Database (IMDB).
