FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS

(US, 2016) Dir: Stephen Frears. Stars Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg. "Comedy and tragedy are beautifully intertwined in this entertaining, intriguing and heartbreaking tale when our hearts sink and soar in equal proportions," says Louise. "Stephen Frears works the material and his terrific cast to perfection, eliciting empathy and sympathy for a woman who desperately loved music but to whom fate had denied a beautiful voice," says Andrew. REVIEWS

Movie reviews:
THE MAN WHO KNEW INFINITY

(UK, 2015) Dir: Matt Brown. Stars Jeremy Irons, Dev Patel, Toby Jones, Stephen Fry, Jeremy Northam. "It's a great story and so far untold on screen, of a born maths genius from Madras, who even at the age of 7 was revealing mathematical formulas of some complexity," says Andrew. "If you liked A Beautiful Mind and The Imitation Game, you are guaranteed to enjoy to this involving and satisfying film in which intellect and emotion form two sides of the coin," says Louise. REVIEWS

Movie reviews: MIA MADRE

MIA MADRE

(Italy, 2015) Dir: Nanni Moretti. Stars Marghherita Buy, John Turturro, Giulia Lazzarini, Nanni Moretti. "There is a wave of sadness that engulfs Nanni Morettiís film and some moments resonate, although his Palme díOr winner The Sonís Room in 2001 was far more affecting," says Louise. "I find nothing special in this story of siblings about to lose their mother, nothing that shows an observation unfamiliar to us in general. That makes it seem self indulgent, and I donít mean to be harsh," says Andrew. REVIEWS

Movie review: MOTHER'S DAY
Movie review:
MOTHER'S DAY

(US, 2016) Dir: Gary Marshall. Stars Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, Jason Sudeikis, Timothy Olyphant, Britt Robertson. "Syrupy, manipulative and predictable, Motherís Day smacks of every commercial contrivance with its meshing stories about every kind of mother found in Forrest Gumpís box of chocolates. Itís a pity to see an excellent cast wasted on such mush," says Louise. REVIEW

[Coming in July, Love & Friendship, starring Kate Beckinsale, Xavier Samuel, Chloe Sevigny, Stephen Fry. "Manipulation is as natural to Austen's protagonist Lady Susan as the cool English air she breathes. Kate Beckinsale delivers one of her best career performances, " says Louise. "The dialogue flows fast, and it is wittily barbed, " says Andrew.] MAY RELEASES

CUT BANK
Stars Michael Stuhlbarg, Bruce Dern, John Malkovich, Liam Hemsworth. Petty crims in small town stumble into mayhem, a genre made popular by the Coen brothers with Fargo, is a terrific addition to the thriller sub genre list, and Cut Bank is a gripping, entertaining addition to that list, says Andrew.

SPOTLIGHT
Stars Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, Liev Schreiber. It could only be told if it were a true story or else the outrage from some quarters would be deafening. And as it is a true story, the outrage from other quarters should be deafening, says Andrew.

SISTERS
Stars Amy Poehler, Tiny Fey. Itís certainly entertaining to watch these attractive, smart women at work. For me, the disappointment is that the material simply does not fire, says Louise.
