Quickies for March 2015

Hello I Must be Going (2012) ✭✭✭


Melanie Lynsky deals with first-world problems in Connecticut. Cute and kind of funny. Excellent supporting cast features Blythe Danner and John Rubinstein.








My Mother's Smile (2002)✭✭✭½


An intriguing allegory on the role of religion in modern life, and the similarities between the Church and a large insurance company. Marco Bellocchio is an interesting director; I'll seek out more of his work.








Petite Fille (2010) ✭✭✭


Hélène Fillières stars as a young woman so desperate to escape her suffocating parents she makes some unwise choices. Generally interesting but the ending gets over the top crazy.
