Late Night
Nisha Gantra | USA | 2019 | 102m | 15

Comedy drama about legendary late-night talk show host Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) who, after years of complacency and declining ratings, finds her show is on the network’s chopping block. Katherine’s world is turned upside down when she hires her first female staff writer, Molly Patel (Mindy Kaling) who brings fresh eyes and an honest perspective. Katherine’s decision has unexpectedly hilarious consequences, as her show is upended by Molly’s passionate, unapologetic, at times outright bizarre approach to comedy and to life.

We The Animals
Jeremiah Zagar | USA | 2019 | 94m | 15

We The AnimalsAdaptation of Justin Torres’ autobiographical novel about a mixed-race family with three inseparable young sons in upstate New York.

Lyrical, impressionistic, arrestingly beautiful and strongly performed (with the boys all played by non-professional actors), the film - part coming of age story, part sexual exploration, part magical realism - explores the animalism of young children alongside that of violent, warring adults.
