Fifty Shades Darker

Fifty Shades Darker
  • 2017
  • US
  • 18
  • Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan

No surprises here: Anastasia (Johnson) gets sweet-talked back into the red room by Christian (Dornan). Foley seems to be under orders to skip the actual sex, as the real money shots are of Christian’s wardrobe. Johnson manages to be likeable and human, but otherwise it’s high on production values and short on story.

Parent and Baby Screening: Hidden Figures (PG)

Taraji P. Henson stars in Hidden Figures, the remarkable true story of Katherine Johnson, the African American scientist who played a key role in Project Mercury, NASA’s first human spaceflight program.

It’s a story too few of us know. Three African-American mathematicians Katherine G. Johnson (Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) work for NASA’s Computer Unit. Defying race and gender lines, the women’s genius proves essential to the mission to send John Glenn into orbit. Their contribution to this American achievement propels the dreams of the nation, bringing the US back into the Space Race.

The second film from Theodore Milfi after St. Vincent, Hidden Figures is a buoyant and uplifting slice of untold history, with triumphant performances from the three leads, plus brilliant support from Kirsten Dunst, Kevin Costner and Jim Parsons.

When Winfried (Simonischek) visits his adult daughter Ines (Hüller) in Romania, he thinks that she takes life too seriously, and decides to play pranks on her. Superlative third feature from German writer-director Ade, ranging from flamboyantly lunatic comedy to a wonderfully natural, textured portrait of the parent-child relationship. Inimitable and unforgettable.
