THE BRONTE SISTERS is a biopic that doesn’t take the easy route

Rating: ★★★1/2

Strange that the definitive cine-biography of three giants of English literature, still taught in classrooms across the country, is a French language production. Unintentionally amusing whenever the actors pronounce Bradford with the uvular trill of French-accented English. 904 more words

It wouldn’t be a Joachim Trier film if it didn’t completely destroy me emotionally. Trier’s debut in the Cannes Official Competition and in English, “Louder Than Bombs,” is one of the great films about dysfunctional families. 1,481 more words

Cannes Film Review: 'Valley of Love'

If there’s a certain momentousness to the onscreen reunion of Isabelle Huppert and Gerard Depardieu — 35 years after Maurice Pialat’s “Loulou” — everything else in Guillaume Nicloux’s cryptic curio “Valley of Love” works strenuously against any mounting sense of consequence. 853 more words
