WOMAN WALKS AHEAD ★★★☆☆
D: Susanna White (Our Kind of Traitor).
S: Jessica Chastain, Michael Greyeyes, Ciarán Hinds, Bill Camp, Sam Rockwell.
Michael Greyeyes is the standout. A clunky movie, but well intentioned. Is no DANCES WITH WOLVES.
EYE ON JULIET ★★★★☆
D: Kim Nguyen (Two Lovers and a Bear, War Witch).
S: Joe Cole, Lina El Arabi, Faycal Zeglat, Brent Skagford.
Another doozy of a love story from Nguyen. BEFORE SUNRISE with hexapods and intercontinental rescue.
THE CHILDREN ACT ★☆☆☆☆
D: Richard Eyre (Notes on a Scandal, Stage Beauty, Iris).
S: Fionn Whitehead, Emma Thompson, Ben Chaplin, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Stanley Tucci.
Richard Eyre is not a good filmmaker at the best of times, but this is tripe.
