2011. New ideas. New Discoveries. And most importantly New Films.
1) This Film is about a girl who moves to a new neighborhood during the summer holidays. With her Jean Seberg haircut and tomboy ways, Laure is immediately mistaken for a boy by the local kids and decides to pass herself off as Mikael, a boy like the others but different enough to catch the attention of leader of the pack Lisa (Jeanne Disson) who becomes smitten with him. At home with her parents (Mathieu Demy and Sophie Cattani) and girlie younger sister she is Laure, while hanging out with her new pals and girlfriend, she is Mikael. Finding resourceful ways to hide her true self Laure takes advantage of her new identity as if the end of the summer would never reveal her unsettling secret.
2) Kevin is a disturbing, deranged, non-linear account of a school shooting from the point of view of the mother of the perpertrator. Flashbacks (featuring some of the creepiest kid actors I’ve ever seen, including a frickin’ toddler!) trace the relationship between Kevin and his mom, played by the always captivating Tilda Swinton, doing wonders here. But it’s Ezra Miller as the teenage Kevin who really steals the show. He is frightening. Downright scary.
3) A Hollywood stunt performer who moonlights as a wheelman discovers that a contract has been put on him after a heist gone wrong, Ryan Gosling is gracing our film theatres , again.
4)L.A. screenwriter David Sumner relocates with his wife to her hometown in the deep South. There, while tensions build between them, a brewing conflict with locals becomes a threat to them both, this is a remake, is this remake any good, well go check it out!
