Final Portrait

Final Portrait
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 30min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Stanley Tucci
  • Cast: Geoffrey Rush, Armie Hammer, Clémence Poésy

American writer James Lord (Hammer) poses for a portrait by legendary painter and sculptor Alberto Giacometti (Rush), but regrets it as the deadline is extended beyond absurdity. Delightfully playful examination of the artist-subject relationship, and both Rush and Hammer are perfectly cast as the curmudgeonly master and his impeccably polite sitter.

Jimmy (Tatum), his brother Clyde (Driver) and sister Mellie (Keough) enlist the help of redneck jailbird and explosives expert Joe Bang (Craig) to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Soderbergh’s latest comedy heist movie is perhaps his best, with a great cast, a satisfying plot and witty dialogue.

Napping Princess

Napping Princess
  • 2017
  • Japan
  • 1h 51min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Kenji Kamiyama
  • Cast: Mitsuki Takahata, Shinnosuke Mitsuhima

When schoolgirl Kokone (Takahata) falls asleep, she assumes the identity of princess Enshen in a futuristic heartland where cars are an essential commodity. Bolder and brainier than its title suggests, this striking anime is an enjoyable adventure and a thoughtful allegory about the importance of following your dreams.
