The Bookshop (2017)

England 1959. In a small East Anglian town, Florence Green decides, against polite but ruthless local opposition, to open a bookshop.

Sad, melancholic tale is presented in a pedestrian pace, but has a good cast and period details and a heartbreaking ending.

Amy Adams

Naked Paradise (1957)

A gangster and his two henchmen try to get a boat to get off a tropical island after a botched robbery heist.

Low budget shows badly on this tediously talkative exotic crime drama with not much of a plot.

Maltin BOMB: "On-location filming can't salvage this balderdash..."

I Kina spiser de hunde (1999)

Two brothers, one cold and ruthless, the other sensitive and reluctant, and their brutal misadventures.

Violent drama with an almost absurd plot and some very dark humor is only entertaining for those who can stomach it.

Audrey Marnay

Rush (2013)

The merciless 1970s rivalry between Formula One rivals Niki Lauda and James Hunt.

Daniel Brühl is perfect cast as Niki Lauda in this well-made and entertaining buddy-rival story.

Maltin**1/2: "Screenwriter Peter Morgan...tries to spin gold from another story, but this isn't necessarily the stuff of great drama - except on the track, where director Howard uses his filmmaking know-how to create a vivid, visceral experience."
