Bolshoi Babylon

Bolshoi Babylon
  • 2016
  • UK
  • PG
  • Directed by: Nick Read, Mark Franchetti
  • Cast: Maria Alexandrovna, Sergei Filin, Vladimir Urin

Intriguing if not entirely satisfactory inside look at one of the world's most acclaimed artistic institutions, the Bolshoi Ballet, made during a season in which its artistic director Sergei Filin was the victim of an acid attack. The dancers talk eloquently about their own work but the focus is more on day-to-day machinations than the bigger issues.

  • 124 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David O Russell
  • Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro

Joy Mangano (Lawrence) is a young mother coping with her dysfunctional family; the story traces her invention and development of the Miracle Mop. Russell's screwball drama never really finds its tone and although Lawrence is probably too young, she plays Joy with gusto; only now and again does it rise to the heights of Russell's earlier work.

Joy, known as Ma (Larson), has been held captive in a shed for seven years by a man referred to as Old Nick (Bridgers). Her five year old son Jack (Tremblay) has never known anywhere else. Their journey to freedom is gripping and emotionally fraught, and Tremblay and Larson are excellent.
