Here’s a few great picks from the line-up; I’ll be covering most of these in the next few weeks.
A comic satire starring the legends that are Catherine Deneuve and Gérard Depardieu by François Ozon, one of the better French directors working today.
If you’ve ever watched the IT Crowd you should be jumping up and down about this film. Richard Ayoade’s dramedy follows a 15-year old boy with teenage dreams and teenage problems, a coming-of-age story with an eccentric twist Submarine should be a joy to watch.
Oranges And Sunshine
Already getting hyped as one of the best UK films in years, Jim Loach’s Oranges And Sunshine stars Hugo Weaving and Emily Watson in a drama about the woman who discovered one of the biggest social scandals in the UK; forced child migration.
There’s really nothing more to say than car tire serial killer = awesomeness.
Cave of Forgotten Dreams 3D
This is why 3D was invented. An exploration into Chauvet-caves in Southern France by Werner Herzog and a looksee into to the history of man and art, this film looks and feels unbelievable.
Winner of a bunch of Goyas, this 2009 piece depicts a disturbing tale inside a prison through the eyes of a captured young guard and inmate leading the rebellion. I’ve wanted to see this for ages, and now I get my chance finally. Really looking forward to this one.
