Two brothers and a teenage girl try to dodge mob assassins this week in Clover, there's time travel with a twist in James Vs His Future Self and a girl begins to question her religious community in The Other Lamb. An unplanned pregnancy prompts a difficult journey in Never Rarely Sometimes Always and there's a strange pilgrimage in The Whalebone Box. Meanwhile, a nine-year-old rages against her carers in System Crasher, the story of Marcel Marceau saving orphans from the Nazis is told in Resistance - we interviewed star Géza Röhrig - a young couple are trapped in a surreal housing estate in Vivarium and there's music and comedy in Military Wives. A young doctor decides to run for office in Saudi Arabia in The Perfect Candidate, there's detective drama in Motherless Brooklyn and Knives Out, and a comedian learns to see the funny side in Standing Up, Falling Down. Plus there's a literary celebration in Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am see our interview with director Timothy Greenfield-Sanders - while the gentrification of Hoxton is explored in The Street and the final work of Yves Sain Laurent features in Celebration - we spoke to director Olivier Meyrou.
