Brian Cox and Miranda Richardson star in Jonathan Teplitzky’s (The Railway Man) stirring depiction of one of Britain’s most complex icons, Winston Churchill, in the nail-biting hours before the D-Day landings in 1944. Drawing on Churchill’s relationship with his beloved wife, this immersive biopic reveals the terrifying anxieties at the heart of a fascinating man and historical moment.
New from Japanese auteur Hirokazu Kore-eda (Like Father, Like Son; Our Little Sister) is this tender, exploratory drama. Former novelist Hiroshi Abe (now a private detective) is trying to reconcile with his family, but in the background a storm – but literal and metaphorical – is brewing. By turns funny, melancholy and prescient, Kore-eda’s drama reveals moments of unanticipated beauty thrown into relief by everyday life.
