GIRL d. Lukas Dhont, 2018 at BFI (11 MAR 20:30):

  • “Fifteen-year-old Lara (Victor Polster) is on the path to get the gender reassignment surgery she so desperately wants. Despite strong support from her father and younger brother, the physical and emotional pressures of her dance academy – as well her own impatience – are slowly starting to take their toll. “

Films in London today: BORDER at ArtHouse Crouch End (08 to 14 MAR).

BORDER d. Ali Abassi, 2018 at Arthouse Crouch End (11 MAR 13:20 & 20:45):

  • “Customs officer Tina is known for her extraordinary sense of smell. It’s almost as if she can sniff out the guilt on anyone hiding something. But when Vore, a suspicious-looking man, walks past her, her abilities are challenged for the first time ever.”

SHAKESPEARE WALLAH d. James Ivory, 1965 at BFI (11 MAR 18:15):

  • “Perhaps the most accurate account ever made of British India in its death-throes, SHAKESPEARE WALLAH (newly restored) remains a firm favourite in the Merchant-Ivory canon. Their second film with writer Ruth Prawer Jhabvala is a portrait of a group of travelling players trying to keep Shakespeare alive in the sticks.”
