A lavish costume drama with a thoroughly modern bite, a tragi-comedy about a young romantic poet who arrives in Paris with his aristocratic mistress full of hope and conviction and discovers a world as corrupt and treacherous as any sinkhole of iniquity.
Costa Brava, Lebanon
A family living in isolation off the grid is dismayed when the government annexes the adjoining land to put in a landfill. This impressively nuanced, novelistic drama subtly reveals the bonds and tensions within the family unit.
Ali & Ava
Bradford, West Yorkshire. Ali (Adeel Akhtar) is a music nut, and the most sympathetic landlord you will meet in a movie this year. Ava (Claire Rushbrook) is a teacher, a widow, and a grandmother. Clio Barnard's love story has music, humor and hope.
My Old School
In 1993, when 16-year-old Canadian Brandon Lee enrolled in Bearston Academy, a secondary school in one of the posher parts of Glasgow, he took the school by storm, winning over teachers and pupils alike. One things for sure: he would never be forgotten.
