IN THE HEART OF THE SEA (2015)
Starring Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, George Pollard, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, Tom Holland, Brendan Gleeson and Jordi Molià. Directed by Ron Howard.

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. 'Heart of the Sea' reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down.

REVIEWS In the Heart of the Sea - No whale of a tale

BROKEN (2013)
Starring Tim Roth, Eloise Laurence - Skunk and Cillian Murphy. Directed by Rufus Norris.

Skunk is 11, pretty cool and wise beyond her years. Her summer holidays have just begun, promising unhurried days and easy hopes. Her lawyer father adores her but is perpetually busy, her brother is a pesky older teen and their au pair Kasia is a delightful accomplice to her world – especially as Kasia has a dreamboat boyfriend... who also happens to be Skunk's teacher!

But their cul-de-sac idyll soon has a dark shadow cast over it - and them - and Skunk's innocence begins to be drained away at a speed, and in a way she cannot control. Her home, her neighbourhood, her school become treacherous environments where the happy certainties of childhood give way, and a complex, seemingly broken world may fill her future. Skunk seeks solace in the last remaining place where she knows she can find it - the unspoken friendship with her sweet but off kilter neighbour, Rick.
