Yesterday is a simple, quiet and delicate film about a young Zulu family ravaged by HIV. There are a number of wonderful moments but, as you would expect, this is ultimately a very sad and emotionally challenging experience.
A bit draggy in the middle, but overall a decent and respectful revamp of the Tarkovsky sci-fi classic. Features the same Zen-like atmosphere of the original, and manages to be equally haunting. This is a film that you'll be thinking about for a few days. Excellent performances from Viola Davis and Jeremy Davies.
Well produced thriller that’s a little too clever for its own good, but some beautiful Italian landscapes nearly make up for it. Will appeal mainly to ardent fans of Cate Blanchett.
