6 Days (Toa Fraser, 2017) Jamie Bell, Abbie Cornish, Mark Strong, Martin Shaw, Emun Elliott, Ben Turner, Aymen Hamdouchi; NZ

6 Days is a taut thriller telling the incredible true story of six days of terror after six heavily armed gunmen invaded the Iranian Embassy in London's Princes Gate on 30 April 1980, taking 26 people hostage. Negotiators, police, politicians and the military wrestle over the correct response, all observed by some of the world's first live TV news coverage. Director Toa Fraser also directed the epic New Zealand film The Dead Lands, which was developed into a TV series this year.
