Dreamcatcher

Dreamcatcher
  • 2015
  • UK/US
  • 98 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Kim Longinotto

Documentary about Brenda Myers-Powell, whose Dreamcatcher Foundation is a Chicago-based charity that helps women get out of prostitution. Longinotto celebrates her subject with being sycophantic or preachy; the women (and also Myers-Powell's own former pimp, now reformed) tell their tales in their own words, and the result is both humbling and inspiring.

Far from the Madding Crowd

Far from the Madding Crowd
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 119 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Thomas Vinterberg
  • Cast: Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Juno Temple, Michael Sheen

Bathsheba Everdene (Mulligan) is a headstrong rural girl who inherits a farm and attracts the attention of three suitors; lowly Gabriel (Schoenaerts), well-to-do Boldwood (Sheen) and unscrupulous Troy (Sturridge). A straight-up take on Hardy's classic; Mulligan is a convincing Bathsheba and Vinterberg captures the brewing tragedy magnificently.

Samba

Samba
  • 2014
  • France
  • 120 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Olivier Nakache/Eric Toledano
  • Cast: Omar Sy, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Tahar Rahim

Samba (Sy) is a Senegalese immigrant to France threatened with deportation; Alice (Gainsbourg, clearly relishing being cast against type) is the caseworker assigned to him. The irresistible leads have great chemistry, and the supporting cast is also excellent. A crowdpleasing but genuinely compelling character drama.
