LION

(Aust, 2016) Dir: Stars Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman, Sunny Pawar, Rooney Mara, David Wenham. "Loss and belonging are the themes of this incredible true story; it is the simplicity of the storytelling that brings it to life. Most crucial is the establishment of the Indian reality," says Louise. REVIEW

Movie review: JACKIE
Movie review:
JACKIE

(US, 2016) Dir: Pablo Larrain. Stars Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, Greta Gerwig, Billy Crudup, John Hurt. "Natalie Portman’s central multi-layered performance is unforgettable for many reasons. Beyond the physical illusion… her portrayal is both internal and external: from the distinctive, breathy, almost Monroe-esque manner of speech and practiced smile to the grief-torn woman in total control of her public and private image, whose vulnerability is only revealed in private," says Louise.

Review: XXX: RETURN OF XANDER CAGE
Review:
XXX: RETURN OF XANDER CAGE

(US, 2017) Dir: D.J. Caruso. Stars Vin Diesel, Samuel L. Jackson, Toni Collette, Donnie Yen, Deepika Padukone. "Kiss ass, get the girl and be cool is the mantra of this popcorn movie that relies on its larger than life star and slew of stunts to make its mark. (But) it is short on thrills with action sequences that for the most part feel perfunctory…" says Louise. REVIEW

Movie review: COLLATERAL BEAUTY
Movie review:
COLLATERAL BEAUTY

(US, 2016) Dir: David Frankel. Stars Will Smith, Edward Norton, Kate Winslet, Michael Pena, Helen Mirren, Naomie Harris, Keira Knightley. "…already groaning under a surfeit of sentimentality, Collateral Beauty could shed some of its syrup to achieve bigger, deeper impact. It also overloads on death," says Andrew. REVIEW

[Coming in February, Manchester by the Sea, stars Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams; "Lonergan's film rings true on every level as the complex relationships and multi layered intricacies of grief find a compass in the direction of calmer waters," says Louise.]

CAFÉ SOCIETY
Stars Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Steve Carell. Enjoyable on a superficial level and attractively made, Café Society is not Woody Allen at his very best. As always, though, his sublime taste in music makes up for much of the lacklustre screenplay, says Andrew.

DEEP WATER HORIZON
Stars Mark Wahlberg, John Malkovich. Despite the fact that much of the dialogue is indecipherable and it is hard to know exactly what is happening for much of the time, the sheer power and scale of one of the world’s largest man made disasters takes your breath away, says Louise.
