The Grand Seduction

The Grand Seduction
  • 3 stars
  • 2013
  • Canada
  • 113 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Don McKellar
  • Cast: Brendan Gleeson, Taylor Kitsch, Liane Balaban

Murray (Gleeson), an ex-fisherman, is dismayed that fishing quotas have demoralised his Newfoundland community, so he conceives a Zany Scheme to attract a petrochemical plant to the town. Charming small-town comedy in the Ealing tradition, with Gleeson in his element as the scheming hustler; odd, though, that the environmental consequences are completely uncommented upon.

  • 109 min

  • Directed by: Paolo Virzì
  • Cast: Fabrizio Bentivoglio, Matilde Gioli, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi

Wealth-obsessed Dino (Bentivoglio) risks his home and business on a bank loan to invest 700K in the hedge fund of obscenely affluent Giovanni (Gifuni), the father of his daughter's boyfriend. Virzi's cleverly-structured story, based on a novel by Stephen Amidon, is an elegant, effective thriller about the value of a human life.

Poland 1962; orphaned novice nun Sister Anna (Trzebuchowska) is about to take her vows when she finds out that she was originally named Ida and is Jewish, so she goes on a search for the truth about her parents. A thoughtful, beautifully shot but emotionally uninvolving coming-of-age story.

Life of Crime

Life of Crime

  • US
  • 94 min
  • Directed by: Daniel Schechter
  • Cast: Jennifer Aniston, Mos Def, John Hawkes

Louis (Hawkes) and Ordell (Bey, aka Mos Def) kidnap socialite Mickey (Aniston) from her shady husband Frank (Robbins). Unfortunately, Frank has filed for divorce and is in no hurry to pay. This sort-of prequel to Jackie Brown is snappy, with fine performances (Aniston is consistently surprising); pity about the slight plot and lack of suspense.

Manuscripts Don't Burn
  • 4 stars
  • 2013
  • Iran
  • 125 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mohammad Rasoulof

Iranian thriller based on real events; due to the incendiary subject matter, the cast and crew are uncredited. Although it could have done with a touch more ferocity to match its conviction, it's a severe and bravely critical film that those outside Iran need to see.
