ON RELEASE AT CINEWORLD THIS WEEK
Ralph Fiennes is on diabolically entertaining form in this darkly comic skewering of the pretentious gastronomy scene. Fiennes plays a well-regarded yet mysterious chef who invites a cadre of snooty individuals and critics, each with their own skeletons in the closet, to a remote island restaurant experience that turns increasingly interactive and shocking.
Anya Taylor-Joy, Nicholas Hoult, Hong Chau, John Leguizamo and Janet McTeer round out the excellent cast in a movie that will have you thinking twice about Michelin-starred extravaganzas.
Suave Mad Men star Jon Hamm demonstrates his comic chops in this affectionate and funny adaptation of Gregory McDonald's novel. (It is, in fact, the third movie in the Fletch series, which helped propel Chevy Chase to stardom in the 1980s.)
The charming and troublesome Fletch becomes the prime suspect in a murder case while searching for a stolen art collection. The only way to prove his innocence? Find out which of the long list of suspects is the culprit—from the eccentric art dealer and a missing playboy to a crazy neighbour and Fletch’s Italian girlfriend.
Acclaimed director James Gray (The Lost City of Z; Ad Astra) delivers his most personal work to date. Gray adapts his own childhood in New York, bringing us the story of two young friends who are torn asunder by the harsh realities of racism and bigotry.
Anne Hathaway, Jeremy Strong and Anthony Hopkins bring the gravitas while newcomers Michael Banks Repeta and Jaylin Webb impress in the central roles.
Liam Gallagher Knebworth '22
Knebworth 22 is a new feature-length documentary that traces Liam Gallagher back to the site of his former band’s defining performances, including all-new interviews, behind-the-scenes and concert footage captured from 20 camera positions.
The film also goes a little bit further, seeking out stories and perspectives from collaborators and fans of different generations from around the world, transposing the emotional and social context of the 90s’ shows versus the tumult of our current era.
