THE ANGELS’ SHARE

DIRECTOR: Ken Loach - GREAT BRITAIN

In his bittersweet caper-comedy, which won the Jury Prize at Cannes, Loach turns his gaze on Robbie, a new father in trouble with the law. When he holds his newborn son for the first time, Robbie is determined that the boy will have a better life, one with opportunities. But Robbie must first sort out his life as a prison sentence looms. Given one more chance and sentenced to community service, he meets Rhino, Albert, and Mo, former criminals who also can’t find work. But, ironically, turning to drink changes their lives. Robbie, it turns out, has a rare gift—a...

GINGER & ROSA

DIRECTOR: Sally Potter - GREAT BRITAIN

London, 1962. While tied to the hip—“forever”—of her best friend Rosa (Alice Englert), Ginger (Elle Fanning) is beset by two crises: the collapse of her parents’ marriage and the growing worldwide anxiety concerning nuclear Armageddon. If that’s not enough, the joys and terrors of dawning sexual identity and creative ambition are equally consuming. As her family implodes and the Cold War meets the sexual revolution, lifelong friendship will be shattered by ideology and personal betrayals. Looking back on the idealism and roots of a feminist generation, Potter’s exploration of the price of coming of age features a striking performance by...

THE PERVERT’S GUIDE TO IDEOLOGY

DIRECTOR: Sophie Fiennes - GREAT BRITAIN

Following up on his provocative The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema, confrontational Slovenian philosopher and film theoretician Slavoj Žižek continues his riveting search for the hidden languages of cinema, exploring the idea of films as collective fantasies that shape our beliefs, practices, and society. Žižek’s high-concept take on what psychoanalysis reveals about ideology is a treat for cineastes seeking profound yet accessible analysis of the classics and is guaranteed to provide fresh perspective. Fiennes captures Žižek (amusingly inserted into scenes from the films he talks about) as he examines a wide range of works (also music, history, and current events) including...

TWO YEARS AT SEA

DIRECTOR: Ben Rivers - GREAT BRITAIN

Two Years At Sea is a nearly wordless portrait of Jake, who lives a solitary existence in a Scottish forest in Aberdeenshire. Surviving frugally, he passes his time with strange projects and living the radical dream he had as a younger man, which he spent two years working at sea to realize. Rivers has made 20 shorts over the past decade, free of narrative, drama, and character development, inspired by literature and fine art, and exploring worlds at the far fringe of civilization—places of ragged, strange beauty where inventors, seers, and eccentric philosophers live in zealous communion with nature. “Too...
