The Hollywood Reporter | David Rooney
“Extraordinary in its piercing intimacy and lacerating in its sorrow, Jackie is a remarkably raw portrait of an iconic American first lady, reeling in the wake of tragedy while at the same time summoning the defiant fortitude needed to make her husband’s death meaningful, and to ensure her own survival as something more than a fashionably dressed footnote.”

rated-thumbs-UP+DOWN_2A young, lonely woman is consumed by her deepest and darkest desires after tragedy strikes her quiet country life.
Summary: In their secluded farmhouse, a mother, formerly a surgeon in Portugal, teaches her daughter, Francisca, to understand anatomy and be unfazed by death. One afternoon, a mysterious visitor horrifyingly shatters the idyll of Francisca’s family life, deeply traumatizing the young girl, but also awakening some unique curiosities. Though she clings to her increasingly reticent father, Francisca’s loneliness and scarred nature converge years later when her longing to connect with the world around her takes on a distinctly dark form.

The Playlist | Noel Murray
“It’s intense as hell, and a supreme example of how the morally repugnant can be made to look weirdly beautiful.”

THE BUZZ: With a trailer that’s five times more frightening than any “AHS: Roanoke” episode and polarizing critical response, I feel powerless against the pull of this black-and-white nightmare created by first-time director Nicolas Pesce. We’re also pro Pesce because he wrote up a list of his favorite B&W horror movies for us. – Arno

Things to Come (2016) Poster

Things to Come


Certificate PG-13   –   Drama

A philosophy teacher soldiers through the death of her mother, getting fired from her job, and dealing with a husband who is cheating on her.
rated-thumbs-UP+DOWN_2Summary: What happens when the life you’ve worked so hard to build falls apart all at once? Nathalie (Isabelle Huppert) is a philosophy teacher with a seemingly settled existence, juggling a rich life of the mind with the day-to-day demands of career and family—including frequent visits to her drama queen mother (Édith Scob). But beginning with the bombshell revelation that her husband of twenty-five years is leaving her, one by one the pillars of Nathalie’s life start to crumble. For the first time in ages, she finds herself adrift, but also with a newfound sense of liberation. With nothing to hold her back, Nathalie sets out to define this new phase of her life and to rediscover herself.

Watch Trailer:

The Film Stage | Giovanni Marchini Camia
“While Hansen-Løve certainly deserves credit for writing such a compelling character, it’s difficult to imagine anyone realizing Nathalie as consummately as Huppert, who, even by her exceptionally high standards, pulls off a superlative performance.”
