Bel Canto

Bel Canto
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • Directed by: Paul Weitz
  • Cast: Julianne Moore, Ken Watanabe, Sebastian Koch

Roxanne Coss (Moore) is an opera singer hired to perform at a diplomatic dinner in an unnamed South American country, but then rebels invade the house and take everyone hostage. This adaptation of Ann Patchett’s novel lacks the usual heroics and Weitz clearly aims for a more thoughtful approach, but can’t decide what kind of film he wants to make.

Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • Directed by: Bo Burnham
  • Cast: Elsie Fisher, Josh Hamilton, Emily Robinson

Kayla (Fisher) is an awkward teenager in her last week of grade school, who posts would-be inspirational vlogs while lacking confidence in daily life. Fisher is superb as the anxious, heroic Kayla and it’s a humane and sometimes hilarious debut from comedian-turned-filmmaker Burnham.

My Friend the Polish Girl

My Friend the Polish Girl

Katie (Emma Friedman-Cohen), a young American documentarian, casts a Polish woman in her film about the life of migrants in London after the Brexit referendum. Her only instruction as director to Alicja (Aneta Piotrowska) is: "Act as if I’m not here." However, as their relationship develops it becomes clear that all is not what it seems in Alicja’s life, and this would-be actor’s interest in both film and Katie deepens. The documentary soon becomes the narrative of a questionable game in which the two women challenge each other. [15]

The World Is Yours

The World Is Yours
  • 2018
  • France
  • 1h 34min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Romain Gavras
  • Cast: Karim Leklou, Isabelle Adjani, Sam Spruell, Gabby Rose

François (Leklou) was born into a life of crime, but now he just wants to introduce Mister Freeze ice pops into North Africa, and one last score will help him do it. Flamboyant and very funny European crime caper with plenty of socio-political commentary but also keeping a fine balance of hard realism and jovial campness. Surprisingly sweet.
