MOTHER (2019)
MADRE
2019, 129 min, Spain/France, Dir: Rodrigo Sorogoyen

MOTHER is an expansion of Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s 2017 Oscar-nominated short, in which an anguished mother loses her six-year-old son on a beach. The feature film picks up the story ten years after the boy’s disappearance and follows the mother, Elena (Marta Nieto), who now lives in the French coastal town where her son went missing. The film probes the emotional depths of grief as Elena lives out a hollow existence haunted by the ghost of her son. Perhaps reminding the woman of her boy, an adolescent tourist, Jean (Jules Porier), catches her interest. The gangly Jean seems drawn to Elena as well. Much of what passes between the two remains unspoken, and their growing bond results in tension and unease for those around them. “In a quiet, tremulous drama short on firm answers, Sorogoyen’s directorial technique is … boldly assertive.” - Guy Lodge, Variety.


FREAKY
2020, Universal, USA, Dir: Christopher Landon

From the deliciously debased mind of writer-director Christopher Landon (HAPPY DEATH DAY, the PARANORMAL ACTIVITY franchise) comes a pitch-black horror-comedy about a slasher, a senior and the brutal truth about high school. Millie Kessler (Kathryn Newton) is just trying to survive the cruelty of the popular crowd at Blissfield High when the 17-year-old becomes the newest target of The Butcher (Vince Vaughn), her town’s infamous serial killer. But The Butcher’s mystical dagger causes him and Millie to wake up in each other’s bodies, a change that will become permanent in 24 hours. With help from her friends—ultra-woke Nyla (Celeste O’Connor), ultra-fabulous Joshua (Misha Osherovich) and her crush Booker (Uriah Shelton) – Millie races against the clock to reverse the curse while The Butcher discovers that having a female teen body is the perfect cover for a little Homecoming killing spree.
