CourtedFrom 2 June: Courted (PG)

Known as the "two-figure" judge, Michel Racine rules his courtroom with an iron fist. A feared President of the Assize Court, his minimal sentence always exceeds ten years. With few colleagues or outside acquaintances to call friends, his life inside and outside the court is equally somber. While overseeing a particularly brutal murder case, Michel is battling both the flu and a heady distraction in the form of juror Ditte Lorensen-Coteret, who sat on the jury at a murder trial six years earlier. Back then, Racine had fallen in love with her. Almost in secret. And she is perhaps the only woman he has ever loved.

Fabrice Luchini, Sidse Babett Knudsen. Director: Christian Vincent

The Man Who Knew Infinity

Click image to enlarge

From 2 June: The Man Who Knew Infinity (PG)

Srinavasa Ramanujan is a 25-year-old shipping clerk and self-taught genius, who failed college due to his near-obsessive, solitary study of mathematics. In 1913, he leaves colonial India to travel to Trinity College, Cambridge. There, he finds understanding and a deep connection with his sophisticated mentor, the eccentric Professor G. H. Hardy. Under Hardy's guidance, Ramanujan's work evolves in ways that will revolutionize mathematics and transform how scientists explain the world. But while Hardy fights tirelessly to get Ramanujan the recognition and respect that he deserves, in reality Ramanujan is as much an outcast in the traditional culture of Cambridge as he was among his peers in India. But Ramanujan fights illness and intense homesickness to formally prove his theorems, so that his work will finally be seen and believed by a mathematical establishment that is not prepared for his unconventional methods.

Dev Patel, Jeremy Irons, Stephen Fry. Director: Matthew Brown

From 2 June: Mia Madre (M)

Film director Margherita is making a new social drama, set against the backdrop of an industrial dispute. But try as she may to remain professional, the emotional turmoil of her private life is taking a toll: an affair with one of her actors has come to an end, her adolescent daughter is failing Latin, but most troubling is the recent hospitalization of her formidable, beloved mother Ada. While her brother Giovanni allows himself to be engulfed by his mother's last days, taking extended leave to prolong his bedside vigil, Margherita's tough schedule makes more than a daily visit tricky. Meanwhile, the famous American actor Barry Huggins has arrived, a needy and capricious personality whose brash presence on set sees things go from bad to worse, and whose general ineptitude might finally push Margherita over the edge...

Macadam Stories

From 9 June: Macadam Stories (M)

A building in a housing project in Paris. One broken-down elevator. Three encounters between six characters. In the strange beauty of a cold urban landscape, a stingy old man in a wheelchair goes on a moonlight escapade to meet a lonely night nurse. A troubled actress in decline sparks the fascination of a latchkey teen. And an American astronaut jettisoned from space onto a high-rise rooftop is taken in by a doting mother who speaks no English. The extraordinary encounters that can be found within ordinary moments drive this darkly humourous story, as the lonely existances of six solitary people give rise to surprising moments of compassion and intimacy.

Sherpa

Click image to enlarge

From 16 June: Sherpa (M)

In 2013, the world's media reported on a shocking mountain-high brawl as European climbers fled a mob of angry Sherpas. Director Jennifer Peedom and her team set out to uncover the cause of this altercation, intending to film the 2014 climbing season from the Sherpas' point of view. Instead, they captured Everest's greatest tragedy, when a huge block of ice crashed down onto the climbing route, killing 16 Sherpas. For the Himalayan workers repeatedly traversing the mountain carrying supplies, the risk of this hazardous endeavor is multiplied. This stunning documentary, shot by high-altitude cinematographer Renan Ozturk, explores the unequal relationship between cashed-up foreign expeditions and their guides. It is also a story of family and tradition, as exemplified by Phurba Tashi Sherpa, an experienced climber at the heart of this commanding film.
