The Great Beauty - 2013
Sixty-five-year-old cultural critic Jep (Toni Servillo) is jaded by Rome's dolce vita and idly dreams of returning to writing fiction. However, he is still much in demand as a sort of Italian Oscar Wilde, dispensing waspish quips as he wryly rolls up at an endless round of parties attended by models, actors and ageing hedge fund lotharios. Maverick director Paulo Sorrentino is on firm, home ground with this intoxicating glimpse into the city's impolite society, a world of scandal, strippers and artists partying among the city's ruins.
We're the Millers - 2013
Deep-in-debt pot dealer David Burke (Jason Sudeikis) recruits a fictitious family to smuggle a shipment of weed across the Mexican border into America in a motorhome. However, his surrogate nearest and dearest - stripper Jennifer Aniston, street punk Emma Roberts and virgin Will Poulter - prove even more dysfunctional than the real thing. Hold on to your sombreros for this first-rate comedy road trip from Dodgeball director Rawson Marshall Thurber.
Killing Season - 2012
Traumatised Bosnian war veteran Benjamin Ford (Robert De Niro) is holed up a remote cabin in the Appalachian mountains is a bid to escape painful memories of the conflict. However, the past catches up with him when former Serbian soldier Emil Kovac (John Travolta) hunts him down, hoping to settle an old score. What follows is a cat-and-mouse game in which Ford and Kovac fight their own personal war both physical and psychological.
Lovelace - 2012
The brutal exploitation of porn star Linda Lovelace is the gruelling subject of this first-class biopic. Amanda Seyfried plays the young actress who was raised a strict Catholic only to appear in the most successful skin flick ever. Peter Sarsgaard convinces as her abusively controlling husband while there's a cheeky cameo from James Franco as Hugh Hefner. Perfectly capturing the day-glo sleaze of the early 70s, this is a worthy companion piece to Boogie Nights.
Renoir - 2012
Gilles Bourdos' lushly atmospheric drama tells the story of celebrated Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, in declining health at age 74, and his middle son Jean, who returns home to convalesce after being wounded in World War I. The elder Renoir is filled with a new, wholly unexpected energy when a young girl miraculously enters his world. Blazing with life, radiantly beautiful, Andrée will become his last model, and the wellspring of a remarkable rejuvenation. At the same time, Jean also falls under the spell of the free-spirited young Andrée. Their beautiful home and majestic countryside grounds reverberate with familial intrigue, as both Renoirs become smitten with the enchanting and headstrong young muse.
Small-town fry cook Odd Thomas (Anton Yelchin) is an ordinary guy with a paranormal secret: he sees dead people, everywhere. When a creepy stranger shows-up with an entourage of ghostly bodachs - predators who feed on pain and portend mass destruction - Odd knows that his town is in serious trouble. Teaming up with his sweetheart Stormy (Addison Timlin) and the local sheriff (Willem Dafoe), Odd plunges into an epic battle of good vs evil to try to stop a disaster of apocalyptic proportions.
Admission - 2013
30 Rock comedy queen Tina Fey and the ever-affable Paul Rudd head up this likeable romantic drama from About A Boy director Paul Weitz. Fey is Portia Nathan, a Princeton admissions officer whose routine life gets spun upside down when she meets Rudd's John Pressman, a former college classmate now running an offbeat school. Fizzy chemistry from the leads gets quality support from an engaging cast including Michael Sheen, Wallace Shawn and Lily Tomlin.
