We start the night off with Sahara. Searching for a treasure on the River Niger, Dirk Pitt thwarts the attempted assassination of a beautiful U.N. scientist investigating a disease that is driving thousands of North Africans to death. The suspected cause of the ragind epidemic is vast pollution that threatens to extinguish all life in the world's seas. Racing to save the world from environmental catastrophe, Pitt and his team run a gauntlet between a billionaire French industrialist and a bloodthirsty West African tyrant. Now amidst the blazing, shifting sands of the Sahara, Dirk Pitt will make a desperate stand - in a battle the world cannot afford to lose!
Following this, the second film, Constantine. John Constantine (Reeves) a man cursed with various psychic gifts, who lives a life haunted by demons that he exorcises from the possessed, and sends back to Hell. HIs days are infinitely gloomy and he walks alone until he meets Angela (Weisz), a police officer investigating the death of Isabel, her twin sister. Allegedly, Isabel killed herself by jumping off the roof of the mental institution her family placed her in, but security footage shows her whispering the name Constantine before she falls...
The third film of the AllNighter will be Melinda and Melinda. Over dinner Sy (Wallace Shawn), a playwright proposes an intellectual exercise to fellow playwright Max (Larry Pine) and dinner guests. Is life typically tragic of comic? To illustrate his point he begins to tell a story which he invites the others to embellish. The story starts as follows: A young Manhattan couple, throw a dinner party when their long-lost friend Melinda appears at their door, bedraggled and woebegone. The story continues in two versions; firstly the tragic - where Melinda is a disturbed woman who leaves her husband, but then falls into suicidal depression when he takes the children away. Secondly, Melinda the comic - where she is the childless and carefree neighbour of the dinner hosts. Back and forth the stories go, contrasting the destinies of the two Melindas.
The fourth film will be our anticipated Mystery Film. Over the years the WSC AllNighters have had a wide variety of different and exciting mystery films, including E.T. 20th Anniversary, Plunkett & Macleane, Kiss of the Dragon, Thirteen Days and not forgetting the remarkable House of Flying Daggers! Over the years the Films and Admin Officers have used every possible technique to secure a fantastic AllNighter film for you, and this time is no exception!
For those who have made it this far, sit back and enjoy the penultimate film of the night: Dreamworks's animated treat, Shrek.Shrek is a big green ogre who lives alone in the woods, feared by all the people in the land of Duloc. When Lord Farquaad, the ruler of Duloc, exiles all the fairytale beings in the woods, Shrek looses his peaceful life and his home becomes a camp for the banished beings. So, he sets off to find Lord Farquaad and convince him to take the fairy-tale beings back. Lord Farquaad accepts, under one condition. Shrek must first go and find the beautiful young princess Fiona, who will become Farquaad's bride. So, the big Ogre begins his quest, along with his newfound and very adorable donkey friend...
For the finale of the night we will show The Interpreter. Escalating events begin when U.N. translator Silvia Broome alleges that she has overheard a death threat against an African head of state, spoken in a rare dialect few people other than Silvia can understand. In an instant, Silvia's life is turned upside down as she becomes a hunted target of the killers. Placed under the protection of federal agent Tobin Keller, Silvia's world only grows more nightmarish. As Keller digs deeper into his eyewitnesses' past and her secretive world of global connections, the more suspicious he becomes that she herself might be involved in the conspiracy. With every step of the way, he finds more reasons to mistrust her. Is Sylvia a victim? A suspect? Or something else entirely? And can Tobin, coping with his own personal heartache, keep her safe?
