CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT
I FIGLI DELLA NOTTE
2016, Reel Suspects, 85 min, Italy/Belgium, Dir: Andrea De Sica

Giulio (Vincenzo Crea), a 17-year-old from a well-to-do family, is sent to an isolated boarding school in the Alps, where iron-clad rules limit all contact with the outside. He finds a kindred spirit in the rather odd Edoardo (Ludovico Succio), with whom he frequently escapes the grounds when security becomes lax after dark. The two discover a nightclub hidden in the forest, where they befriend a prostitute, Elena (Yuliia Sobol) - and ultimately discover that the school’s reach is much greater than they had imagined.


ALEX CROSS
2012, Summit Entertainment, 101 min, USA, Dir: Rob Cohen

Washington DC detective Alex Cross (Tyler Perry) learns that a family member has been murdered, and vows to find the diabolical serial killer (Matthew Fox), who goes by “Picasso.” Based on the best-selling James Patterson novel Cross. With Giancarlo Esposito.


THE OTHER
1972, 20th Century Fox, 108 min, USA, Dir: Robert Mulligan

This creepy adaptation of Tom Tryon’s best-seller is set on a New England farm in the mid-1930s, where strange happenings begin to swirl around twins Niles and Holland Perry. With their mother (Diana Muldaur) reduced to a recluse by her husband’s recent death, the boys gravitate to their grandmother (played by famed acting teacher Uta Hagen). She teaches one of them how to play “the great game” - a way to project the mind outside the body - which has grave consequences when it turns out the pair are much less angelic than they initially appear. Jerry Goldsmith composed the darkly atmospheric score.
