(UK, Germany / 2014 / Directed by Wes Anderson)
R / 100 mins. 
Wes Anderson’s (Rushmore, The Royal Tennenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom) anticipated new film tells the adventurous tale of Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes) and Zero Moustafa (Toni Revolori), a legendary hotel concierge and the lobby boy who becomes his protege.
After a one-night stand with the beautiful Madame D. (Tilda Swinton), Gustave finds himself embroiled in a web of dramatic developments – including the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting, a murder accusation, and a battle over an enormous family fortune. With a stellar cast (Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwartzman, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson, Tilda Swinton, and Jude Law, among others), Anderson’s latest is a showcase for talent. Framed against the backdrop of a dramatically changing 1920s Europe and inspired by the films of Ernst Lubitsch and Billy Wilder, Grand Budapest uses different aspect ratios and film styles, making it a visual romp that’s stuffed with mood, wit, and unconventional plot points. A charming, sophisticated gem.

Set in Mumbai, home to over 18 million, this delicate debut feature is predicated on a mistake in which a wife’s special lunch meant for her neglectful husband is instead delivered by the usually efficient lunch-box couriers to a lonely widower on the verge of retirement.
With no reaction from her husband, Ila (Nimrat Kaur) puts a note for her husband in his next lunchbox but it continues to be delivered to a stranger named Saajan (Irrfan Khan). Soon the two are sending one another notes through the lunchbox. What begins as an innocent mistake develops into an opportunity for the two to express themselves about their loneliness, memories, regrets, fears, and even small joys. They each discover a new sense of self and find an anchor to hold on to. A remarkable portrait of life in Mumbai that weaves in themes of gender, class, and generational difference into its delicate love story.

Nick and Meg, a long-married British couple, decide to celebrate their thirtieth wedding anniversary with a weekend getaway to Paris where they once honeymooned.
As Nick and Meg (Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan, vets of Mike Leigh films) negotiate how to enjoy the city of Light, they bicker, argue, and soon they’re fighting about their respective faults and revisiting the highs and lows of their marriage and relationship.They seem ready to move on when they run into an old friend of Nick’s (Jeff Goldblum) who acts as a catalyst for them to recapture their youthful fearlessness. This film is the fourth collaboration between British filmmaker Roger Michell and Oscar-nominated screenwriter Hanif Kureishi (Venus, The Mother, and The Buddha of Suburbia) and features some truly remarkable acting.

(US/2014/dir by Jim Jarmusch)
R/122mins
The ever-wonderful Tilda Swinton’s Eve is a gorgeous blonde and Tom Hiddleston is the reclusive Adam in Jim Jarmusch’s tale of two fragile centuries-old vampires.
They share an all-embracing passion for music, literature and science, and they’ve seen it all. Eve leaves her pad in Tangier to join Adam in Detroit hoping to just get on with their eternal lives but find that it’s getting increasingly difficult to secure uncontaminated blood. A wonderful cast includes John Hurt, Jeffrey Wright, Mia Wasikowska.Jim Jarmusch’s Director’s Statement: ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE is an unconventional love story between a man and a woman, Adam and Eve. (My script was partially inspired by the last book published by Mark Twain, The Diaries of Adam and Eve, though no direct reference to the book is made other than the character’s names.) These two lovers are archetypal outsiders, classic bohemians, extremely intelligent and sophisticated—yet still in full possession of their animal instincts. They have traveled the world and experienced many remarkable things, always inhabiting the shadowed margins of society. And, like their own love story, their particular perspective on human history spans centuries—because they happen to be vampires. But this is not your usual vampire story. Set in the very distinct cities of Detroit and Tangier, and taking place almost entirely at night, Adam and Eve must have human blood to survive. But they now live in the world of the 21st century where biting the neck of a stranger would be reckless and regressive—for survival, they must be certain the blood that sustains them is pure and free of disease or contamination. And, almost like shadows, they have learned long ago to deftly avoid the attention of any authorities.For our film, the vampire is a resonant metaphor—a way to frame the deeper intentions of the story. This is a love story, but also the story of two exceptional outsiders who, given their unusual circumstances, have a vast overview of human and natural history, including stunning achievements and tragic and brutal failures. Adam and Eve are themselves metaphors for the present state of human life—they are fragile and endangered, susceptible to natural forces, and to the shortsighted behavior of those in power.
