FILMS OUT THIS WEEK
A dying single father seeks a new home for his son this week in Nowhere Special, a bereaved young woman travels to Ireland in I Never Cry and middle aged women take the daughter of a dead friend on holiday in Off The Rails. A dead man is sent back to Earth to find love in Here After, a teenager summons a vengeful spirit in Kandisha, a woman finds herself caught up in a strange experiment in Animosity and a prisoner's life depends on spinning a good yarn in Night Of The Kings. A new friendship leads to trouble for a pioneer woman in The World To Come, a Maori family struggles t recover after a forced adoption in Cousins, a man tries to prove his innocence in Plurality, and a man and his jacket hatch a killer plan in Deerskin - read what director Quentin Dupieux told us about it. Meanwhile a stroke threatens to separate an elderly couple in Two Of Us - see our interview with director Filippo Meneghetti - and violence on a housing estate threatens a family in A Good Woman Is Hard To Find. There's animated family fun in The Croods: A New Age and the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival is remembered in documentary Summer Of Soul (...Or, When The Revolution Could Not Be Televised).
