Carey Mulligan in Wildlife FYC

"She can be rather bland (see Drive for one blatant example) BUT when she is on, she is on fire. Phenomonal in Shame and Never Let Me Go." - Huh

"She will have a long and fruitful career. I see her like the next Charlotte Rampling. Aging gracefully carrying complicated roles in complicated movies." - Peggy Sue

an outre comedy anthology - six tales of revenge. It's a real crowd pleaser
This war time drama about a farmer and a wounded man is very popular with those who've seen it.

Villagers are beset by extremists in this heartwrenching drama.

A major hit at the US arthouse and a potential winner. Stands out from the crowd for brevity, impact and aesthetic

This angry political film about a fisherman losing his beloved home to corrupt government is engaging, darkly funny and critically acclaimed.
