Movie Of The Week

Paterson

This week's featured film is Paterson, a poetic drama starring Adam Driver.

Driver plays the character of Paterson, a hardworking bus driver in Paterson, N.J., who follows the same routine every day. He observes the city and listens to fragments of conversations while picking up and dropping off his passengers. Paterson also writes heartfelt poems in a notebook, walks his dog and drinks one beer in a bar after his shift is over. Waiting for him at home is Laura, his beloved wife who champions his gift for writing.

To get to know the film better, read Helen O'Hara's review on the Empire magazine website website.

Foreign Language Films (without English subtitles):

Radin!

Radin! is a French comedy from popular director Fred Cavaye.

The film's protagonist is Francois Gautier, a man who has been a complete penny pincher since childhood. He saves on electricity and toothpaste, avoids spending to the point where he is hated by others, and has built his life around saving money at any price. But all of these certainties are called into question when Francois meets Laura, the daughter he never knew he had. Starting off with a big lie to cover up his true nature, the François is forced to become a better, more generous person.

To get a better insight into the movie, take a look at Jordan Mintzer's review in the Hollywood Reporter here.

Ejdeha Vared Mishavad!

Ejdeha Vared Mishavad! is a 2016 Iranian drama that was selected to compete for the Golden Bear at the 66th Berlin International Film Festival.

The movie is set on the island of Qeshm in the Strait of Hormuz in 1965, just after the assassination of Iranian Prime Minister Hassan Ali Mansour. In amidst of this, three individuals are placed in charge of investigating the suspicious death of a political exile. The other conundrum that the trio have to solve is why whenever one is buried on the island, an earthquake occurs and a new individual disappears.
