The Accountant

The Accountant
  • 2016
  • US
  • 128 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Gavin O'Connor
  • Cast: Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, JK Simmons

Christian Wolff (Affleck) is a high-functioning autistic accountant who's also a trained sniper and lethal martial arts fighter, who uncovers corporate skulduggery in his employers. Affleck's wry, low-key performance is actually a good fit and Kendrick is sweet and likeable as his fellow geek, but it's top-heavy with plot, back-story and flashbacks and just doesn't add up.

  • 2015
  • 88 min

  • Directed by: Aleksandr Sokurov
  • Written by: Aleksandr Sokurov
  • Cast: Louis-Do de Lencquesaing, Benjamin Utzerath, Vincent Nemeth

A meditation on the most iconic of museums: the Louvre. Sokurov's roving camera, restless ghosts and emphasis on history as being alive and kicking evokes his masterpiece Russian Ark but the focus on the Louvre gives it unique character. A true conversation with the past.

  • 2016
  • France / Poland
  • 115 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Anne Fontaine
  • Cast: Lou de Laâge, Agata Buzek, Agata Kulesza

Mathilde (de Laâge) is a French Red Cross medic in Poland in 1945, who has to care for a group of nuns and novices who have become pregnant after being raped by Russian soldiers. An appalling plight is presented with sensitivity and restraint, and Buzek is poignant as the compassionate and relatively wordly Sister Maria.

  • Directed by: Whit Stillman
  • Cast: Kate Beckinsale, Chloë Sevigny, Xavier Samuel, Stephen Fry

Lady Susan Vernon (Beckinsale) is penniless, selfish and keen to marry off her nelfected daughter to the nearest wealthy dolt, but she's also smart, witty and beautiful. Stillman gives a wickedly droll adaptation of Jane Austen's short novel, choicely acted by the whole ensemble.

  • Cast: Isabelle Huppert, André Marcon, Roman Kolinka, Edith Scob

Nathalie (Huppert) is a philosophy teacher whose finds herself having to soldier on as she loses her job, her mother (Scob, wonderful) and her husband over a short period of time. A poignant, wonderfully funny and elegantly crafted meditation on ageing; Huppert is simply incredible.

Valley of Love

Valley of Love
  • 2015
  • 92 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Guillaume Nicloux
  • Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Gérard Depardieu, Dan Warner

Gérard (Dépardieu) and Isabelle (Huppert) are two famous French actors, long-estranged parents of an adult son, who reunite after his death to follow a strange set of directions he left for them. Shambling and under-realised two-hander which makes the most of its marvellous leads and is fitfully insightful about family, guilt and intimacy.
