Beginners

Telling the story of a dying widower who announces he’s gay, ‘Beginners’ comes out strong.


Drama

Kathryn Jenson White
Should you need motivation to make a life change and visit the great god Google for guiding thoughts on new starts, you’ll find pithy aphorisms aplenty.

Haywire

The spy who loved me ... and kicked my ass.


Action

Rod Lott
Can Steven Soderbergh do a martial arts-fueled action thriller? That was rhetorical in a bear-crap way; the guy can do anything. Best known for Traffic and the Ocean's Eleven franchise, he's a director par excellence, even when the story goes to snuff in his experimental larks, like casting porn star Sasha Grey as the lead in 2009’s no-budget drama The Girlfriend Experience.

Perfect Sense

Love means never having to say ‘you’re sorry’ ... because your partner can’t hear you, anyway.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
If Contagion were exported to Scotland — and injected with a dose of speculative fiction in customs — the result might make Perfect Sense. The film fails only to fit snugly into one genre, being a thriller, a romance and sci-fi, but sci-fi only in the sense that Children of Men and Never Let Me Go were. This is equally brainy, and maybe just a smidge less bleak.
