My Father's Guests (2010) ✭✭✭½ 

Amusing, well written French comedy. All about a lively retiree (Michel Aumont) who is happy to be taken advantage off by a dodgy young Hungarian immigrant (Veronika Novak). Also stars Fabrice Luchini and Karin Viard,…what more do you need?

Draft Day (2014) ✭✭

Wadjda (2012) ✭✭✭✭

This terrific little movie blew me away. Really interesting immersion in Saudi lifestyles, with constant reminders of the many ways women are mistreated. Amusing and infuriating at the same time.
