FILMS OUT THIS WEEK
Jennifer Lawrence is back in the arena this week as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, while the story of how Mary Poppins was made is explored in Saving Mr. Banks. There's romance in the air for would-be sailor Marius, bereaved sisters in Day Of The Flowers and the young heroines of Palme D'Or winner Blue Is The Warmest Colour. A man wakes up to discover he's homeless in No Fixed Abode, a teenager takes up sex work in Young & Beautiful and another teenager snaps due to bullying in Carrie. Meanwhile, Computer Chess takes a mockumentary look at Eighties nerd life and in the documentary corner proper ¡Vivan las Antipodas! looks at pairs of countries on opposite sides of the globe, while Leviathan provides an immersive perspective on deep sea trawler fishing and Dirty Wars investigates covert US military tactics. All this, plus we're bringing you coverage of Talinn Black Nights and the French Film Festival.
