MR HOLMES

(US/UK, 2015) Dir: Bill Condon. Stars Ian McKellen, Laura Linney, Milo Parker. Bill Condon, who directed Ian McKellen in Gods and Monsters in 1999 (and won the Oscar for best screenplay), has created a film that plays as richly as one of Sherlock Holmes’ cases. REVIEW

Movie review:
FAR FROM MEN

(France, 2014) Dir: David Oelhoffen. Stars Viggo Mortensen, Reda Kateb. "Donning the mantle of a decent man, Viggo Mortensen is remarkable – in part because of the absence of remarkability of his character: a humble village schoolteacher forced to the crossroads, quietly displaying his despair of killing, respect for humanity and gratitude for living," says Louise.

RUN ALL NIGHT
Stars Liam Neeson, Genesis Rodriguez. "Revenge and redemption are the themes of this edge of seat action thriller in which no sin goes unpunished and Liam Neeson searches for solace for his life’s misdeeds. It’s a ripper of a film," says Louise.

GET HARD
Stars Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart. "Politically incorrect, racist, homophobic, crude, rude and pretty stupid, this Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart odd couple comedy offers some laughs, albeit mostly for the fans seeking escapism and a dose of their comic lunacy. If you’re easily offended, don’t go near this film," says Louise.
