2018, Screen Media Films, 132 min, Dir: Terry Gilliam

Toby (Adam Driver), a cynical advertising director, finds himself trapped in the outrageous delusions of an old Spanish shoemaker (Jonathan Pryce) who believes himself to be Don Quixote. In the course of their comic and increasingly surreal adventures, Toby is forced to confront the tragic repercussions of a film he made in his idealistic youth - a film that changed the hopes and dreams of a small Spanish village forever. Can Toby make amends and regain his humanity? Can Don Quixote survive his madness and imminent death? Or will love conquer all?


MARRIAGE STORY
2019, Netflix, 136 min, USA, Dir: Noah Baumbach

Propelled by fiercely authentic performances, this incisive and compassionate portrait of a marriage breaking up and a family staying together plays out with subtlety and sincerity at every turn. New York couple Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) and Charlie (Adam Driver) have survived separations until Nicole commits to starting a new life in California. Charlie accepts the idea of divorce - but cannot accept the bicoastal custody arrangement that comes with it. Laura Dern and Alan Alda costar as the couple’s dueling divorce attorneys.


THE DEAD DON’T DIE
2019, Focus Features, 103 min, USA/Sweden, Dir: Jim Jarmusch

In the sleepy small town of Centerville, something is not quite right. The moon hangs large and low in the sky, the hours of daylight are becoming unpredictable and animals are beginning to exhibit unusual behaviors. But no one foresees the strangest and most dangerous repercussion that will soon start plaguing Centerville: The Dead Don't Die - they rise from their graves and savagely attack and feast on the living, and the citizens of the town must battle for their survival. The horror comedy features the greatest zombie cast ever disassembled, including Jarmusch regulars (Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Chloë Sevigny, Tilda Swinton, Iggy Pop, Steve Buscemi, Tom Waits) and newcomers to the fold (Selena Gomez, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Carol Kane) in a raucous, rueful and satirical glimpse at American habits and desires at the end of the world.
