Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars.

THE BUZZ: One thing to love about The Accountant‘s promotional campaign: You still can’t tell exactly how everything is going to unfurl in what looks to be Ben Affleck’s best role of the year (no disrespect to his two appearances as Batman). It’s also a rebound opportunity for director Gavin O’Connor, who most recently took on the troubled Jane Got a Gun. – Arno

Certificate R   –   Drama | Thriller

Metascore: 46/100 (8 reviews)rated-thumbs-UP
A group of people trying to cross the border from Mexico into the United States encounter a man who has taken border patrol duties into his own racist hands.
Summary: What begins as a hopeful journey to seek a better life becomes a harrowing and primal fight for survival when a deranged, rifle-toting vigilante chases a group of unarmed men and women through the treacherous U.S.-Mexican border. In the harsh, unforgiving desert terrain, the odds are stacked firmly against them as they continuously discover there’s nowhere to hide from the unrelenting, merciless killer. [STX]

Jonás Cuarón

Stars:

Watch Trailer:

“Cuaron’s movie may be an exaggerated nightmare vision of murderous xenophobia run amok, but the catharsis in this tale of survival and payback is undeniably real”

THE BUZZ: Jonás Cuarón began outlining this border thriller before he co-wrote Gravity with his father, Alfonso. The script was inspired by a trip Cuarón took through the U.S. Southwest where he heard different migrant/immigrant stories. No doubt Gravity‘s success helped put the cast and financing together for Cuarón to direct the movie. Beyond the dynamic between Gael García Bernal and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, look for scenes of sparse dialogue pierced by violence to keep you unnerved.

Miss Hokusai

  • GKids

(2015)

Certificate PG-13   –   Animation | Biography | Drama | History

rated-thumbs-UP+DOWN_2
The life and works of Japanese artist and ukiyo-e painter Katsushika Hokusai, as seen from the eyes of his daughter, Katsushika O-Ei.
Summary: As all of Edo flocks to see the work of the revered painter Hokusai, his daughter O-Ei toils diligently inside his studio. Her masterful portraits, dragons and erotic sketches – sold under the name of her father – are coveted by upper crust Lords and journeyman print makers alike. Shy and reserved in public, in the studio O-Ei is as brash and uninhibited as her father, smoking a pipe while sketching drawings that would make contemporary Japanese ladies blush. But despite this fiercely independent spirit, O-Ei struggles under the domineering influence of her father and is ridiculed for lacking the life experience that she is attempting to portray in her art. Miss Hokusai‘s bustling Edo (present day Tokyo) is filled with yokai spirits, dragons, and conniving tradesmen, while O-Ei’s relationships with her demanding father and blind younger sister provide a powerful emotional underpinning to this sumptuously-animated coming-of-age tale.

Keiichi Hara

Stars:

Kumiko Asô, Gaku Hamada, Kengo Kôra, Yutaka Matsushige

Peter Debruge
“Animation proves the ideal medium for Miss Hokusai’s relatively tame story, allowing audiences to admire the family’s artwork within a world that they were partially responsible for creating”
