AT THE MOVIES #818 NOT FEW BUT FAR AWAY
Simon Morris has trouble finding some of the new releases – often having to travel long distances to see films like Babyteeth, Charlatan and Kiwi thriller Reunion.
Babyteeth is a touching comedy-drama about a family trying to keep their ailing daughter away from an unsuitable boyfriend. Stars Eliza Scanlen (Little women) and Essie Davis (Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries).
Charlatan tells the story of a so-called healer in 1950s Czechoslovakia, who may or may not be a total conman. Directed by distinguished Czech/British director Agnieszka Holland (Mr Jones, the TV series House of Cards).
And New Zealand actor Emma Draper talks about the new supernatural thriller, Reunion, and what it was like working with her childhood favourite Julia Ormond (Sabrina).
