Coriolanus Poster

The citizens of Rome are hungry. Coriolanus, the hero of Rome, a great soldier and a man of inflexible self-belief despises the people. His extreme views ignite a mass riot. Rome is bloody. Manipulated and out-maneuvered by politicians and even his own mother Volumnia, Coriolanus is banished from Rome. He offers his life or his services to his sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius.

Giardian Review by Peter Bradshaw guardian.co.uk, Thursday 19 January 2012

There’s a fierce critical intelligence at work in Ralph Fiennes’s new adaptation of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus, set somewhere like the war-torn Serbia of the 1990s, a world of rolling TV news, image management and cynical deals cut in smoke-filled rooms.

Spirited Away (2001) PG
Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi (original title)

This weekend’s film is for families and fans of Miyazaki’s Japanese animation of all ages. According to the Guardian – Spirited Away is the most successful Japanese film ever.

Chihiro and her family are on their way to their new house in the suburbs when her father decides to take a shortcut along a lonely-looking dirt road. After getting out of the car and walking along a path for a while, they discover an open-air restaurant filled with food but with no workers or customers present. Mom and Dad don’t hesitate to sit down and dig in, but Chihiro senses danger and refuses. As night falls, she is terrified to see the area fill with faceless spirits, but when she runs to find her parents, she discovers that they have been turned into pigs. She is found by a mysterious boy named Haku, who promises to help her. He gets her a job working in a nearby building, which turns out to be a bathhouse for the thousands of Japan’s gods and spirits. Though the work is hard and the people strange, she does as well as she can. Her parents, however, are still waiting in the hotel’s stockyard…
