  • Directed by: Mick Jackson
  • Cast: Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Spall

Deborah Lipstadt (Weisz) is a historian and lecturer who faces a libel suit after she derides controversial author David Irving (Spall) for his views on the Holocaust. This dramatisation of a 1996 court case has some compelling stretches, but Hare’s script lacks insight and it’s little more than a dry reconstruction of the trial.

  • Directed by: Denzel Washington
  • Cast: Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Stephen Henderson

Troy ( Washington) is a proud, tight-fisted, ageing working stiff in 50s Pittsburgh, full of bitterness that God, poverty and segregation ruined his youthful dreams of sporting success. Beautifully shot family drama, superbly acted (especially by Washington and Davis), but it suffers a bit from heavy self-importance and a long running time.

The Swimming Pool (La Piscina)

The Swimming Pool (La Piscina)
  • 2011
  • Cuba/Spain/Venezuela
  • 65 min
  • Directed by: Carlos Quintela
  • Cast: Raúl Capote, Mónica Molinet, Carlos Javier Martinez

An unusual, enigmatic, visual treat from Cuba bound to make a splash.

On a hot summer morning four teenagers, all differently disabled, gather in a public swimming pool to train with their coach. During the course of the day very little happens but unspoken feelings, rivalries and power games among the members of the group surface. Shot in glorious CinemaScope, unsentimental to its subjects and laconic in length, this contemplative debut unfolds in hypnotic pace into an immersive experience, painting an intimate snapshot of these five outcasts.
