FILMS OUT THIS WEEK
A shelf-stacker and a metal worker fall in love this week in Aki Kaurismäki comedy Fallen Leaves, while a drag queen seduces the man who assaulted him in Femme and what the Bible says on homosexuality is explored in 1946: The Mistranslation That Shifted Culture. Ridley Scott dramatises the life of Napoleon, a relocated family finds itself at odds with the neighbours in There's Something In The Barn, and a mother is forced to confront her past as her daughter grows up in Girl - see our interview with director Adura Onashile. A family gathers for a celebration in Tótem - we talked with director Lila Avilés - and technology reveals a sinister aspect in documentary Another Body - co-director Reuben Hamlyn told us more. The story of Leonard Bernstein is dramatised in Maestro, a Jewish boy is troubled by family silences in animation My Father's Secrets, and there's a guide to spotting extra-terrestrials in 5000 Space Aliens - we spoke with director Scott Bateman. An army instructor takes a surprising new direction in Eismayer - director David Wagner shared his thoughts, plus there are big screen re-releases for classic romcom Love Actually, gangland thriller Scarface, war drama Saving Private Ryan and Christmas comedy Elf.
We also have plenty of suggestions for films to watch on television and streaming services in our Stay-at-Home Seven.
