One Life

One Life movie posterThe true story of Sir Nicholas ‘Nicky’ Winton, a young London broker who, in the months leading up to World War II, rescued 669 predominantly Jewish children from the Nazis.

Hopkins bumbles through the picture in an unusually low-key performance that gathers force by stealth until he all but rips our hearts out with the scenes in the That’s Life! television studio. Guardian

Anatomy of a Fall

Anatomy of a Fall movie posterThe closer we look, the less we know in Justine Triet’s masterful, Oscar-winning Anatomy of a Fall, an eerily riveting courtroom thriller that examines the line where truth becomes fiction and fiction becomes truth. When Sandra Voyter (a transfixing Sandra Hüller), a writer who turns the material of her life into autofiction, is put on trial for the suspicious death by defenestration—or was it suicide?—of her husband, it opens up an inquiry that will turn a troubled home inside out.

The End We Start From

The End We Start From movie posterThe all-conquering Jodie Comer turns in another terrific performance in this too-close-for-comfort sci-fi. Comer plays an unnamed, heavily pregnant woman whose waters break just as her pretty suburban home starts to flood. This is not merely a minor domestic issue; persistent heavy rains have put much of the United Kingdom underwater, leading to the evacuation of cities, a shortage of food, and mass panic that drives
desperate people to desperate things.
