Dad’s Lunch Box

"An insight into the growing niche of papaben…"

Based on a simple but touching true story that gained viral recognition on social media. A newly divorced father (Toshimi Watanabe) finds himself out of depth when faced with the unfamiliar challenge of preparing his daughter’s daily lunchbox. The film charts his progress from novice fiascos to increasingly elaborate designs, as his confidence grows at the same steady rate as his improving bond with his daughter.

Refusing to perpetuate the role of the Japanese absentee father, Masakazu Fukatsu highlights the existence of more profound relationships between single fathers and their children, while providing an insight into the growing niche of papaben, or bento lunches prepared by fathers dipping their toes into the culinary world.

The Fight

  • 2018
  • 1h 31min
  • Directed by: Jessica Hynes
  • Cast: Russell Brand, Anita Dobson, Christopher Fairbank

Tina (Hynes) is a harried mother of three who, feeling her confidence battered by work and the drudgery of family life, turns to boxing. Hynes as writer-director takes a pull-no-punches approach to female experience, and the result is a knockout; she herself is a coiled spring as Tina, and the men in her life are neither underwritten nor villainous.

Fisherman’s Friends

Fisherman’s Friends
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: Chris Foggin
  • Cast: Tuppence Middleton, James Purefoy, Daniel Mays, David Hayman

Danny (Mays) is a music industry talent handler who arrives in Cornwall on a stag night, and discovers the titular (real-life) folk singers and signs them. Mays is a watchable lead and generates rom-com chemistry with Middleton, the daughter of the group’s grouchy Jim (Purefoy). An undemanding yarn with nevertheless the power to do some cockle-warming.

Her Love Boils Bathwater

Futaba (Rie Miyazawa) is a single mother struggling to make ends meet after her husband suddenly left her and the family’s bathhouse business went under. While coming to terms with her situation, she is dealt another blow when she is diagnosed with cancer; it’s terminal. Displaying the boundless strength of a loving mother, rather than lament her fate, Futaba determines to use the few months she has left to put her affairs in order and secure a stable future for her teenage daughter, Azumi (Hana Sugisaki). With the twin aims of reconciling her splintered family and getting their bathhouse up and running again, she sets out to track her estranged husband (Joe Odagiri). Can she succeed before her time runs out?

Written and directed by up-and-comer Ryota Nakano, this heartrending family drama (and only his second feature) was selected as the Japanese entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 90th Academy Awards after picking up six Japan Academy prizes, including Best Picture and Best Actress.

Out of Blue

Out of Blue
  • 2018
  • US/UK
  • 1h 50min
  • Directed by: Carol Morley
  • Cast: Patricia Clarkson, James Caan, Toby Jones

Mike Hoolihan (Clarkson) is an alcoholic, world-weary detective trying to investigate the death of astrophysicist Jennifer Rockwell (Gummer). Morley seems to be going for something Lynchian and dreamlike but this adaptation of Martin Amis’s novel isn’t strange enough to beguile, there’s too much nonsense dialogue about black holes, and the conclusion is stale.

  • UK / US
  • 1h 55min

  • Directed by: Martin McDonagh
  • Cast: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage

Exasperated by the police’s failure to catch her daughter’s murderer, Mildred Hayes (McDormand) buys ad space on the titular billboards to tear a strip off the police chief (Harrelson). McDonagh’s latest delicately balances the lingering pain of the crime itself with dark comedy, and a superb cast is topped by a magnificent performance from McDormand.

Three Stories of Love

Offering a glimpse into the microcosm of relationships within Japanese society, three vignettes tell very different stories of love, loss and rejection.

"…puts the loneliness of modern life on full display."

Housewife Toko (Toko Narushima) is trapped in a loveless marriage, but an encounter with a sympathetic scam artist offers respite from her bleak life. An intuitive bridge inspector (Atsushi Shinohara) cannot get past the brutal and random murder of his wife three years prior, and his heartbreak sends his life in a downward spiral. Shinomiya, a lawyer with an inflated ego, enjoys mistreating his younger male lover, but his emotional unavailability turns out to be vulnerability when his life comes crashing down and he seeks refuge with a school friend he once loved.

Named the best Japanese film of 2015 by Kinema Junpo and Mark Shilling of The Japan Times, this tenderly crafted work puts the loneliness of modern life on full display.

  • Cast: Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul Mateen II, Anna Diop

Adelaide (Nyong’o) and Gabe (Duke) arrive at their holiday home with their children, only to be confronted by a mysteriously familiar foursome. Peele’s follow up to Get Out is a neat twist on the home invasion story, with beautifully executed set pieces, and Nyong’o is phenomenal as both protagonist and chief aggressor. Fresh and arresting.

  • Cast: Oleg Ivenko, Ralph Fiennes, Louis Hofmann

The story of Rudolf Nureyev (Ivenko), delving into his work and sex life and how he defected from the Soviet Union in 1961. Ukrainian dancer Ivenko gives an intensely physical performance and Fiennes’ light touch as a director makes it something exciting, genuine and naturally sexy.
