What we know

The legendary Claire Denis directs this story (starring the amazing Juliette Binoche) about a divorced woman in her fifties who’s trying to find love.

What the critics say

  • “What a stylish treat this film is. It leaves you feeling sexier and smarter.” – The Guardian
  • “Denis’s film may conceivable be dismissed as a slender diversion in some quarters — notably, that quadrant of society (and, still, the film industry) that regards the inner lives of women of a certain age as a subject of secondary concern.” – Variety

The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society

What we know

A young writer gets a letter from a literary club that was started in Nazi-occupied Guernsey. Naturally, she decides to visit, and much larks ensue.

What the critics say

  • “The title might be an unwieldy mouthful of words, but the rest of this charming, picturesque drama is not nearly so challenging.” – Empire
  • “Soft as an over-cooked spud, Guernsey will find its devotees, seduced by the vague, nostalgic idea of how things were so much more simple during a world war in which 50 million people died. (Any death or unpleasantness naturally takes place off screen).” – Screen Daily

What we know

A third-time mum gets a night nurse thanks to her older brother – and the women’s relationship gives her some perspective on her life.

What the critics say

  • “One of the smartest things about Cody’s script is how it balances the scales of Marlo’s life, never taking something off her plate without putting something on it in return.” – Indie Review
  • “Tully is too good to be true, but Reitman gives no hint that this pic is headed in the psycho-nanny direction Marlo jokes about early on.” – Hollywood Reporter
