Descendants, TheDescendants, The (2011)
Dir. Alexander Payne
Feat. George Clooney, Shailene Woodley, Amara Miller
George Clooney plays a land heir attempting to reconnect with his family after a serious accident befalls his wife in this seriocomic mid-life drama from dir. Alexander Payne (SIDEWAYS). The Hawaiian setting lends a distinctive exoticism to the writer-director's trademark literate "comedy of ethics", and…
King's Speech, TheKing's Speech, The (2010)
Dir. Tom Hooper
Feat. Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, Helena Bonham Carter
Justly acclaimed tale of King George VI, his nervy, impromptu ascension to the throne and the speech therapist who helped the unsure monarch become worthy of it. Seemingly, one of those stories so tailor-made for cinema you wonder why it wasn't filmed before, this is an effortlessly classy effort that…
Never Let Me GoNever Let Me Go (2010)
Dir. Mark Romanek
Feat. Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan, Andrew Garfield
Faithful adaptation of the Kazuo Ishiguro's 'unfilmable' novel that follows the relationship of three childhood friends who are raised as 'donors' in a parallel English universe where their human counterparts live to be over 100. Notable for another excellent performance from Cary Mulligan (AN EDUCATION),…
Black SwanBlack Swan (2010)
Dir. Darren Aronofsky
Feat. Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel
Natalie Portman plays a ballerina losing her grip on reality, not to mention the lead role in a prestigious production of Swan Lake, in this arresting portrait of female psychosis. Something of a return to the insidious visuals of dir. Aronofsky’s earlier films, while also extending THE WRESTLER’s…
Legend of Billie Jean, TheLegend of Billie Jean, The (1985)
Dir. Matthew Robbins
Feat. Helen Slater, Christian Slater, Keith Gordon
Under-rated 80's youth drama about a young woman and her pals who become media-hyped "legends" after an incident involving a gun and lecherous, middle-aged business owner. This lesser-known teen film sits comfortably alongside the similarly-fashioned dramas of John Hughes, imbued with 'new wave'…
Mercy, TheMercy, The (2018)
Dir. James Marsh
Feat. Colin Firth, Rachel Weisz, David Thewlis
James Marsh (MAN ON WIRE) directs this biographical drama telling the almost unbelievable story of amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst, who attempted to circumnavigate the globe in a yacht in 1968, but almost everything that could go wrong did. It's heart wrenching viewing, but the story of this ambitious,…
Beatriz at DinnerBeatriz at Dinner (2017)
Dir. Miguel Arteta
Feat. John Early, Salma Hayek, John Lithgow
A holistic healer (Salma Hayeck) is an unplanned guest at a dinner party for members of California's privileged elite, in this Trump-era satire of class alienation from the makers of ENLIGHTENED.
