Bolshoi Ballet Live: The Taming Of The Shrew

Bolshoi Ballet Live: The Taming Of The Shrew

French choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot lands a coup with his adaptation of Shakespeare’s comedy tailored to the Bolshoi dancers and achieves a magnetic breath taking dance. This new production staged exclusively for the Bolshoi cannot be seen anywhere else.

  • India
  • 116 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chaitanya Tamhane
  • Cast: Vira Sathidar, Vivek Gomber, Geetanjani Kulkarni

When a Mumbai sewage worker commits suicide, a 65-year-old poet (Sathidar) is put on trial for instigating the suicide by inflammatory song lyrics. Tamhane's feature debut is a masterful look at the Indian justice system, and how it serves little purpose other than to prop up the country's caste system.

Dead Poets Society

Dead Poets Society
  • 1989
  • US
  • 129 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Peter Weir
  • Written by: Tom Schulman
  • Cast: Robin Williams, Robert Sean Leonard, Ethan Hawke, Josh Charles, Gale Hansen

In a staid private boys' school in Fifties New England, an unconventional teacher (Williams) interests his charges in literature and philosophy to such an extent that they form a secret club to investigate them (along with booze and girls) further. Though Williams is on good form, the film focuses mainly on the boys' emotional development and crises, and on the mystery and beauty surrounding their midnight meetings. A sensitive, tense and moving study of the conflict between passion and authority, even if the plot is something of a cliche.

Freeheld

Freeheld
  • 2015
  • US
  • Directed by: Peter Sollett
  • Cast: Julianne Moore, Ellen Page, Steve Carell, Luke Grimes

Based on the true story of Laurel Hester (Moore), a New Jersey detective with terminal cancer who is told by the board in charge of her pension that the pension benefits can't be transferred to her domestic partner Stacie (Page) in the event of Laurel's death. Sadly, director Sollett never really manages to tone down the broader inclinations of the script or performances. Moore is typically studious in the lead but athough she rises above the clichéd, a lot of other aspects of this film do not.

The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book
  • 2016
  • US
  • 106 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Written by: Justin Marks (screenplay), Rudyard Kipling
  • Cast: Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken

You know the story: boy (Sethi) left in woods, adopted by wolves (Nyong'o and Esposito), mentored by panther (Kingsley), befriended by bear (Murray), hunted by tiger (Elba, terrifying). Favreau and his team successfully retool the story with stunning CGI, and a script with heart, soul and spirit. A feelgood delight.

  • 2016

  • 92 min
  • U
  • 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.

Money Monster

Money Monster
  • 2015
  • US
  • 99 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jodie Foster
  • Cast: Jack O'Connell, Julia Roberts, George Clooney

Lee Gates (Clooney) is a motormouth host of a financial advice show, directed by Patty (Roberts); then desperate Kyle (O'Connell) hijacks the show and forces Lee to wear a bomb vest. Earnest and moderately entertaining hostage thriller, but despite good performances and snappy editing it comes close to being The Big Short for Dummies.

Robinson Crusoe

Robinson Crusoe
  • 2016
  • 90 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Vincent Kesteloot/Ben Stassen
  • Cast: Ron Allen, George Babbit, Laila Berzins

In this forgettable animation, Robinson Crusoe (Lowenthal) lives on a desert island where his enemies are … two evil cats. A lacklustre script and dull storytelling make this one not worth taking the family to.

  • Cast: Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, Lucy Boynton, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Aidan Gillen

Fifteen-year-old Dubliner Cosmo (Walsh-Peelo) moves from a posh school to a terrifying inner city institution, where in order to deter bullies and attract aspiring model Raphina (Boynton), he starts a band. A little cloying, but overall a funny, cheering sweetly optimistic romance with wit, character and grit.
