Globe On Screen: Titus Andronicus

Globe On Screen: Titus Andronicus
  • 2015
  • 185 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Lucy Bailey
  • Written by: William Shakespeare
  • Cast: William Houston, Indira Varma, Obi Abili

Shakespeare’s Roman-clad gore fest Titus Andronicus returns to Shakespeare’s Globe for those of us who are lovers of bloody violence done up in elegant prose.

Returning to Rome from a war against the Goths, the general Titus Andronicus brings with him the queen Tamora and her three sons as prisoners of war. Titus' sacrifice of Tamora's eldest son to appease the ghosts of his 21 dead sons, and his decision to refuse to accept the title of emperor, initiates a terrible cycle of mutilation, rape and murder, At the centre of the nightmare moves the self-delighting Aaron.

Spectacularly, even grotesquely violent and daringly experimental, Titus was the smash hit of Shakepeare's early career, and is written with a ghoulish energy he was never to repeat elsewhere.

This new production may not be one for the kids, but is an enthralling and wonderfully ghastly rendition of one of Shakespeare’s less-known, yet timeless historical plays." ★★★★ – Mark Sempill *The Upcoming

Into the Woods

Into the Woods
  • 2014
  • US
  • 124 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rob Marshall
  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski, Johnny Depp

Disney's long-in-the-making adaptation of Sondheim and Lapine's musical, in which a clutch of fairytale characters help a baker (Corden) and his wife (Blunt) lift a curse which prevents them from having a baby. Despite some great moments, the story drags; if you're a fan it's likely to please, but it won't win anyone else over.

Mommy

Mommy

  • Directed by: Xavier Dolan
  • Cast: Anne Dorval, Antoine-Olivier Pilon, Suzanne Clément

Die (Dorval) is a gutsy single mother struggling to cope with her ADHD-diagnosed son Steve (Pilon); then they befriend tongue-tied neighbour Kyla (Clément). Die and Steve's relationship is tempestuous and howlingly inappropriate, but frequently hilarious; the cast excels, with Dorval astonishing and Pilon charismatic and exuberant. Aged just 25, writer/director Dolan steps into the big league.

Ponyo

Ponyo
  • 2008
  • Japan
  • 101 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Hayao Miyazaki
  • Cast: Yuria Nara, Hiroki Doi, Tomoko Yamaguchi, George Tokoro, Kazushige Nagashima

Delightful animated feature from the Studio Ghibli brand about a five-year-old boy who falls for a goldfish princess. It's funny, charming and original enough to keep adults entertained, but where it really scores is Miyazaki's (Spirited Away) ability to understand what a child sees. Like its goldfish heroine, Ponyo may seem like a slight and slivery proposition, but it dives to uncharted depths.

  • Cast: Michelle Williams, Kristin Scott Thomas, Matthias Schoenaerts

Lucile Angellier (Williams) is married and lives in a village in occupied France in the 1940s; when handsome young German officer Bruno von Falk (Schoenaerts) arrives, romance blossoms. Adapted from Irène Némirovsky's novellas, it suffers from wayward pacing but Williams is as honest and affecting as ever. Pack a hanky.

The Tale of The Princess Kaguya

The Tale of The Princess Kaguya
  • 2013
  • Japan
  • U
  • Directed by: Isao Takahata
  • Cast: Chloë Grace Moretz, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen

Kaguya (voiced by Moretz in the English dub) is magically born to a bamboo cutter (Caan) and his wife (Steenburgen), but she's devastated when he moves to the city so that she can become a princess. Enchanting, admirable fable about the damaging effects of stereotypes; Kaguya's father is not cruel, just terribly misguided.

  • 2014
  • Argentina
  • 122 min

  • Directed by: Damián Szifrón
  • Cast: Ricardo Darín, Darío Grandinetti, Érica Rivas

Anthology film consisting of six short stories about diverse characters reaching their tipping points: an explosives expert faced with a parking fine, a road rage incident, and a wedding from hell. Szifrón's jubilantly batty third feature is an exemplary example of how to combine multiple stories in a coherent and often exhilarating way.
